Recent Knife/Tool Reviews

Vargo Dig Dig Tool

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very strong, durable, and functional backpacking potty shovel and spare tent stake with the added benefit of potentially being useful for a number of other applications on a backcountry trip or around camp. When I first received the Dig Dig Tool my general impression was that the design was very utilitarian/functional. After taking the Dig Dig Tool out on several trips I have found that it does a great job doing what it is intended to do, which is to dig catholes. Design and Construction… Full review

Leatherman Rebar

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This multi-tool is definitely high-quality. It has a very solid feel and thus far seems to be built to last two lifetimes. The blades are sharp out of the package and all tools lock into place when being used. This also lends toward two significant issues, from my perspective, which are 1) the tools can only be accessed when the Rebar is opened up, and 2) opening or closing the Rebar requires two hands. This is my first Leatherman product and it was a gift. I have been familiar with the brand and… Full review

Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Hatchet

rated 5 of 5 stars This hatchet is a great everyday for anyone who is in the market for one. It is very versatile, and since it is made by Gerber it comes with a lifetime warranty. I absolutely love this little hatchet. It is great for just about any job that you would need it for. It has a sharp blade. The weight is balanced well, and you can even shave your wood if you so desire with the angle of the blade. Here's a little video I made about it: I hope this helped you to make your decision.  Full review

Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter

rated 5 of 5 stars Good versatile outdoor knife. I have used this knife for the last years. For hunting, fishing, hiking, and general outdoors in Norway. This has ended up being my everyday knife. Works well for making up fish, meat, and firewood. The rubberized handle sticks in the hand even when wet. Well shaped blade, only a bit thick. I find this knife so well made that I have gotten the Penndleton Mini Hunter for my kids 5/9 years. The mini version is the best shaped knife I have seen for kids.  Full review

Columbia River Moxie

rated 5 of 5 stars As a member of another website, I sometimes get the chance to try out different products in exchange for a review, and recently had the opportunity to try out the Moxie 1100 knife from CRKT.  I've been looking for a new daily carry for backpacking and couldn't find one I really liked.  So far, this seems like the knife that will stay around a while.   I've used it for the past few months and love it. It sits very naturally in your hand when you are using it. It also has a great safety that prevents… Full review

Kershaw Shuffle

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid, sharp, small and lightweight...a good knife for adding to your pack. At just under 6" and 3 oz, Kershaw has managed to make a very small, very lightweight knife that is just big enough to be useful.   The handle is less than 3", so, to provide you with extra grip space, the finger notches extend out onto the tang.   This works equally well for cutting line or paring fruit. Additionally the knife features a bottle opener, a belt clip, and a key-chain hole (which could be used as a flat-head… Full review

Morakniv Bushcraft Black

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid, all-round bushcraft/survival knife. My go-to bush blade. Heavy enough to do most anything and lives in my pack. This knife is perfect for all but the most delicate carving tasks, and I would steer folks to this blade as a budget version of a heavy duty blade that's ready to go! No modifications are necessary. Everything about this knife just works. I've used multiple Morakniv knives and so far, this is superior to the ones I've used.  I teach basic survival programs and this is one of the… Full review

Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Accepting the Gerber Exchange-A-Blade Saw for what it is and what it is not, will help greatly when sizing up a cutting task. I've owned the Gerber Exchange-A-Blade folding saw for several years now. My folding saw came as part of a larger kit called the Gerber Off-Road Survival Kit 05635. Quite frankly, I take this kit with me every journey. Granted, car camping only and it stays in the vehicle.  I received this pricey Gerber Off-Road Survival Kit as a Christmas gift from my son. The only piece… Full review

Helle Mandra

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mândra is a small and relatively light knife suitable for belt or neck carry. Made of quality materials, it is a perfect companion blade for a larger camp knife or an option with Old World appeal for a backpacker or outdoors enthusiast seeking fixed blade utility for modest chores. It has a gorgeous design that was executed with minor cosmetic imperfections. Introduction The Mândra (which means “proud” in Romanian) is a small fixed blade knife produced by Helle, a Norwegian knife maker founded… Full review
