Victorinox Swiss Army Ranger Grip 71 Gardener

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The RangerGrip 71 is an excellent purpose-built multi-tool for the gardener or hiker not bothered by a bit of extra weight who wants to do a lot of wood-processing/cutting related camp chores. The quality and design are what one has grown to expect from the Swiss Army Knife brands, and this particular model features a most impressive scissors. Not an every-day carry, but great to have if it suits your tasks. Specs: Height: 1.1 in Length: 5.1 in (closed) 8.9 in (open) Weight: 7.7 oz (weighed in… Full review

ESEE Knives Junglas

rated 4 of 5 stars A durable large blade for wood processing. The ESEE Junglas is a beast of a knife. Its superb heat treat means that the knife can take a beating and come back for more. All of the knife is designed to resist severe use and abuse. The coating on the blade is one of the most durable I have ever used, surpassing even the custom coatings on some of my blades. The canvas micarta handle is impervious to water and fitted perfectly to the handle. While canvas micarta can potentially crack it would take… Full review

TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best trowel to have on any backpacking trip! Small, lightweight, sturdy! It gets the job done! There are not many out there to choose from, but this is for sure the best one! I used to have a hard plastic one, but this one is way better! I brought this on my thru hike on the JMT in August. I love it! It was lightweight and small enough to fit in any side pocket of my pack. I like how strong it is. Anyone who has been hiking through the Sierras knows that there aren't toilets in too many… Full review

Victorinox Swiss Army SwissChamp SOS Set

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The SwissChamp SOS Kit is a brilliant multi-tool paired with a curious array of supplemental tools, packaged together and labeled for survival. If you accept that the kit is a bit gimmicky but built around a rock-solid SwissChamp tool, you can adapt the kit to contain your own deliberate survival tool choices. What’s in the Box The SwissChamp Survival-Kit SOS-Set is a survival-focused kit that combines the SwissChamp (the flagship Swiss Army Officer’s Knife from maker Victorinox) with a series… Full review

Fällkniven F1

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, full-tang lightsaber...I mean survival knife. The F1 is a heavy-duty yet nimble knife with a well-deserved reputation in the global outdoor community. This has been the standard issue survival knife for pilots in the Swedish Air Force since 1995. This is as capable a knife as any I have ever owned, and yet it's so lightweight that I don't hesitate to take it on hiking/backpacking outings. Weighs 6 oz. OAL 3.8" Blade length 3.8" 59 HRC Shaving sharp This knife was the sharpest out-of-the-box… Full review

Opinel No. 12 Explore

rated 4 of 5 stars A folding knife option for outdoors folks who want some of the efficiency of a larger, fixed blade knife in a folding package with hook blade, fire starter, and emergency whistle thrown in for good measure. FEATURES & OPERATION According to Opinel’s literature on its new offering, the No. 12 Explore is a knife intended for “outdoor enthusiasts” for use during activities such as “camping & hiking, hunting, fishing,” and “exploration.” Elsewhere Opinel labels it as being suitable… Full review

Camillus Trench Pocket Tool

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A 5-feature tool that won’t break the bank, but has some flaws to consider. Conditions: I’ve used this 4.75 oz. (135g) multi-tool for a variety of functions for a 3+ month window in which it has been in my pack for day hiking, multi-day hiking, setting up and tearing down camp, fishing, kindling making, meal preparation, and general picnicking. I’ve also used it around the house and in the garden when applicable.  The giant carrot required a serious blade.  You may need a multi-tool just… Full review

Leatherman Super Tool 300

rated 5 of 5 stars Great! Well constructed and have used mine to build shelter in storm when in Zion. Wouldn't leave home without it. However, I do not own a tent except for a 6x9 tarp which does a fine job! Smooth operation, never gets loose, leather case included and rustproof! Full review

Leatherman Charge TTi

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It stays in my pocket! I have just about every type of high end knife or multitool. I can carry any of them for the chores that I do every day. Cutting back stray blackberry bush limbs, tightening the odd screw, or working on my archery equipment are just some of the things it does well, but better than the rest of the tools that could be with me. Which tool do you use? The one you have. If you're not carrying it you most likely won't use it. That being said the Leatherman Charge TI is the one you… Full review
