Recent Knife/Tool Reviews

Victorinox Swiss Army Recruit

rated 5 of 5 stars The perfect first pocket knife that I recommend for all Scouts. It has the most commonly needed tools with a high quality steel that holds an edge well in a size suitable for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts alike. Ease of Use:  Easy to use! Liner lock securely holds blades open and allows Cub Scouts to close blades easily. Blades come sharp and ready to use. Can opener works great! Features: Large blade, small blade, can opener, small and large screwdrivers, tweezers, and tooth pick. It also has a bottle… Full review

EKA Swede 8 Wood

rated 5 of 5 stars The Eka 8 is a Swedish folding knife with Sandvik 12c27 blade. 8 stands for 8 cm (3.15") Just enough for everyday use. The geometry of the blade is good for the hunter and the camper. Not the best wood carving knife, but that's kind of obvious with this blade. Light to carry. Ease of Use: Smooth opening, great lock, sharp and easy to sharpen steel. Features: Hole for cord. A short leather cord with a knot is great for getting it out of the pocket and gives some extra control when hands are bloody… Full review

Schrade Frontier

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This knife requires work to make it great. Fist thing is to file to the jimping so you can actually hold it without real discomfort and then complete removal of the awful powder coating to reveal a proper looking blade and great aesthetics. Not done the Patina bit yet as enjoying the shine of the carbon steel. Not a sharp as reviews said and not being the best sharpener, I am struggling with the included diamond sharpener, however, it NOW looks great. Much better than out of the box and I mean much… Full review

Camillus Les Stroud SK Arctic Fixed Sport Knife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I'm not a survival expert or anything but this is a great, solid knife that does exactly what is says it's going to do. Very simple design without all the extra doodads. When I saw Les Stroud had put his name on this I was confident that this would be a good piece of gear. I haven't tested this in a real survival situation, but I didn't think that would be a good idea so I have taken it on a few car camping trips and tried to beat the heck out of this knife.  I used it to chop wrist thick logs… Full review

Council Tool Forest Service Axe

rated 4 of 5 stars USA made lightweight axe, also called a "boy's axe." Great for when you are on an extended camping trip and more than a hatchet is required for wood procurement. I'd recommend this axe for those who are less concerned with weight but don't want to carry or don't need a full sized axe. I ordered the axe from Omaha Knife with a couple of options. First, hand picked for appearance and grain alignment. Second, sharpened beyond the factory edge. Through doing these things, I saved myself some time on… Full review

Benchmade Mini-Griptilian

rated 5 of 5 stars Custom Mini-Griptilian (S30V): Well constructed, factory sharp knife. Handle gives good grip, and the opening hole (Pardue) is more comfortable than any other design. Purchased this through Benchmade's "custom" ordering process. The order was easy to specify precisely what blade, steel, and grips I wanted. Overall, the knife is light but well put together. It's sharp and the S30V steel will keep its edge longer over other steels. My only complaint is that the handle is not "open" to allow dust and… Full review

Helle Symfoni

rated 5 of 5 stars I've owned this knife since 2006, and 9 years later I have yet to find a better blade. Definitely worth every penny, and then some. I heard Helle discontinued production of them, so if you come across one... buy it. you won't be disappointed. I've put this knife through hell and back (no pun intended), carrying it with me almost every day, and it stands up to just about anything you put it through. Since buying this knife for $89 in 2006 I have yet to find a better knife to own. It is, hands down,… Full review

Schrade Frontier

rated 5 of 5 stars Best survival knife for the price. I bought the first one 4 years ago and loved it. It surpassed my expectations for a heavy duty survival knife.  They were hard to find for a year or so, but when they came back on the market, I purchased a second one. Full review

Morakniv Bushcraft Black

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is an excellent knife. I have used mine for so many tasks such as skinning, making bark baskets, carving tent stakes, etc. It's a tough and versatile blade which holds a very nice edge. I recommend this knife for anyone who wants a good all purpose knife. This knife does have a hidden tang. If you beat it up in a manner that you might a knife with a full tang, you may be disappointed. Other than that, this is a very durable and reliable knife if used properly. I have had mine a year and am… Full review
