TheTentLab Deuce of Spades

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a very light, durable, and functional camp shovel with the added benefit of being very useful for a number of other applications around camp that might not be so obvious. I want to first knowledge that I received my Deuce of Spades as a gift for being a past Reviewer of the Month here on Trailspace and I also want to confess (and I hate to admit...) that I was really excited to be receiving this "potty" shovel as a gift. I have always been interested in gear and equipment and when I first… Full review

SOG Revolver - Seal

rated 4 of 5 stars Great hiking knife. I hiked three months on the Appalachian Trail and this is the knife I took. Used to get firewood, cook, clear trail, stayed sharp and saw cut great. Doesn't have a thick blade. It's not a heavy duty survival knife. If you use it like a knife should be used you should have no problems. Full review

ESEE Knives ESEE-3 Uncoated

rated 5 of 5 stars The best slicing knife I've ever used. I bought the uncoated version of the ESEE 3 in the early spring and have used it daily for three seasons so far (8 months). I do landscaping for a living, go backwoods camping and backpacking very often, and just finished up a successful season of white tail deer hunting.  Early on, fighting the rust was a pretty consistent issue, which I expected, but not quite to the degree that I experienced. I read that others recommended applying a "forced patina" to… Full review

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
