Recent Knife/Tool Reviews

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I received this knife as part of the 10 Essentials Reviewer of the Month prize pack. I split an A4 page holding the page with one hand and started fire very easily with the blunt side of the knife (don't laugh) to some toilet paper. The problem lies in the softness (purity maybe?) of the magnesium rod. No matter how slow I scraped the rod I couldn't get a pile of shavings as they burnt instantly. So lots of sparks but no pile to make a difference when in a difficult situation with wet tinder. Overall… Full review

Morakniv Bushcraft Survival

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sharp, sturdy, versatile, reliable and available in different colors. This fix blade bushcraft knife is made with Swedish stainless steel with a rubber handle, it comes with a fire starter and diamond file all affixed to a protective hard sheath. You won't lose sleep over this knife with it being a fairly affordable option on any of your adventurous outings. The Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Orange This particular Morakniv Bushcraft survival knife model comes with a fitted hard sheath with a drain… Full review

Morakniv Companion Knife

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect for anyone who needs a sharp fixed blade knife for basic camp kitchen and basic bushcraft chores. Backpackers will especially enjoy how lightweight this knife is. After collecting all manner of knives I have fallen in love with the Mora for basic outdoor chores. The 4.1" carbon blade is a very usefull size without being too short for many tasks or too long and too awkward to carry. Folding knives have their place but a fixed blade will always be easier to deploy and use. A fixed blade knife… Full review

Opinel No. 8 Folding Knife

rated 5 of 5 stars It's also an historical knife and the type dates back to at least the Civil War. I've used mine for Civil War and 1916 Punitive Expedition living history. It's a good knife to have and I also carry one in my ground-pounder search and rescue pack. Full review

Schrade Frontier SCHF37

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a good quality knife that's better for bushcraft and not your best choice for ultralight hiking. When I first received this knife my initial impression was that the blade was about the length I like at 6 inches (165 mm) cutting edge and it had a nice choil, but it was wider though at 1.25 inches (33 mm) edge to spine and 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) thick than I was used to and then there was the weight at 18 ounces. The rest of the system, hone, sheath and fire steel, brought the total weight to… Full review

Opinel No. 8 Folding Knife

rated 5 of 5 stars All around a great knife, simple and nice to look at. The knife is easy to open—not as easy as some, it does require two hands. Its simple design is what makes this knife so appealing and nice to look at, it has a very pretty real wooden handle and is simple to unlock and lock with a collar that turns to lock the blade open or closed.  These famous peasant knives from France have a single high-carbon steel blade that folds into a hardwood handle (Beechwood I think). Being a high carbon blade… Full review

Sven 21-Inch Blade

rated 5 of 5 stars Ever see a camp gadget that you just had to have? If not, then check this saw out, by far the best saw on the market. Had mine for over two years and it has never let me down. I first saw this saw on a backpacking trip to Panthertown Valley. I used my swiss army knife for years. I normally go by the "burn nothing bigger than your wrist" rule. But after seeing this saw in action, I knew I had to have one. It easier to use than a traditional bow saw. At 1lb 1oz it's lighter than a bowsaw. And the… Full review

Bob Dustrude Quick Buck Saw

rated 5 of 5 stars Bob Dustrude's Quick Buck Saw is the most powerful folding backpacking bucksaw on the market. This saw is a tool of choice for any wood processing job whether being in the woods or on your backyard. Folding, packable, relatively lightweight, rugged and reliable, it will fit in almost any backpack. Simple and efficient construction from reliable materials the Quick Buck Saw offers the best value for money and will serve for many years. Being in a back country for multiple days never goes without… Full review

Spyderco Vallotton Sub-Hilt Folder

rated 5 of 5 stars Simply put, beautiful. This knife is well elegant! They used the finest materials and the fit and finish are what you would expect in a custom. It's almost hard to use this knife because of its beauty. I had the pleasure of owning this knife for awhile before I hit financial problems and I will buy it again! If you're on the fence about this one, just buy it. It really is worth every penny and you can always put it up for sale on the secondary market and it will be snatched up. Just keep the box… Full review
