Recent Knife/Tool Reviews

Gerber Air Ranger

rated 5 of 5 stars Can't go wrong. Perfect knife, use it every day! One-handed opening is flawless. Works in office, home, or in the field. Can't even feel it in your pocket. I have used it hiking, backpacking, fishing, and I carry it every day!! Got it on eBay for like 15 bucks and have had no complaints. For the gear snobs, I carry it over my Griptillian, personal preference of course.  Full review

Leatherman Style PS

rated 4 of 5 stars At 1.6 oz, the Style PS is an ultralight multi-tool that has EVERYTHING a hiker could want…except a knife blade. (Oops!) Let me start with a story… I am in the St. Louis REI, with an hour to kill before a flight to Boulder, CO. I am staring at a wall of multi-tools—Leatherman, Gerber, Swiss—way too many choices. What I really want to find is a sub-3oz tool with both pliers and scissors. After 45 minutes of comparison shopping, I select the Style PS and head to the airport. A few hours later,… Full review

Morakniv Companion F Rescue

rated 5 of 5 stars Another great, inexpensive knife from Morakniv. I purchased this knife to go into my car as a safety/rescue tool. With its blunt tip and razor sharp serrated edge, it easily cuts through any items I might run across while driving (seat belt, clothes, bandages, etc.). I purchased this knife a few months ago to go in my car in the rare case I need an emergency knife for cutting seat belts or assisting in an accident. Moraknivs never disappoint in their delivery and cost and this one is an example… Full review

Fremont Knives Farson Blade

rated 4 of 5 stars Super sharp edged unique blade for everything from chopping to skinning. The design for this survival blade came from a stone knife found near Farson, Wyoming, in the Great Red Desert. Forged from steel or titanium, its simple design and unique shape do not cause undo attention to this tool. The Farson blade by Fremont Knives is a design taken from a relic stone knife found in the Great Red Desert near Farson, Wyoming. For a better grip and reduction in weight the designers eliminated the center… Full review

Benchmade Lone Wolf Mini-Landslide

rated 5 of 5 stars One of the best folders you can get for $50. I bought this as a replacement for my ancient Swiss Army Knife, lost when moving a few years back. I wanted a decent-quality pocket knife for backpacking, mainly for emergency use, but also for cutting line if needed and for food preparation. I thought fifty bucks was a lot to spend for a pocket knife (since then I've learned you can easily pay upwards of $500-2000). But I went with this one because of good reviews of the Lone Wolf line of knives.  Lone… Full review

U-Dig-It Folding Hand Shovel and Trowel

rated 4 of 5 stars A sturdy folding trowel for doing trowel-related business. Not exactly UL, but it won't break or bend even when prying rocks or chipping at compacted soil. Needless to say, this was a very popular item on our 8-person, 24-day hike on the JMT. The U-Dig-It Pro handled all that traffic with aplomb, allowing for safe and adequately deep deposits of bodily fruits in the Sierra's tough, rocky soils. My daughter kept it on one of the compression straps on the outside of her pack so it was always available… Full review

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have usually carried only a swiss army knife...but the more canoe camping we started doing, the more I realized we needed a fixed blade knife. This knife, having the added benefit of an integrated fire-starter, has become a fixture in our canoe camping kit, as well as in our winter snowshoeing day-packs...it is used for culinary, as well as camp maintenance purposes! Our bright green fire-knife... now a regular companion on our canoe camping trips. The knife is light, and the scabbard protects… Full review

Morakniv Companion Knife

rated 5 of 5 stars Can’t beat the price for what you get! Very sharp right from the start, it’s a great multi-purpose carbon steel knife, very functional drop point blade. From prepping camp food to cutting rope, I’d recommend for anyone’s pack. I've had this knife for a little over three months and it has become my go-to knife both on and off the trail. From opening and breaking down cardboard boxes, to cutting lengths of rope, and even cutting some pepperoni while car camping it has performed awesome! Costing… Full review

Gerber Outrigger, Serrated

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This knife is fantastic when you're in a pinch! The assisted opening makes it easy to take out and open with one hand, while the belt clip keeps it close by. The serrated edge really shines when it comes to quickly cutting things like rope. The assisted opening makes getting the blade out effortless! It's almost a little scary how quickly you can open this. The blade came quite sharp and so far it's stayed that way! In fact it's so sharp I managed to cut into my hand fairly deeply and was able to… Full review
