Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 4 of 5 stars I bought this knife on sale and I thought it would come in handy camping and backpacking and for other things. It has multiple uses and the fire starter works great. I bought this knife to bring with me camping and backpacking for multiple uses. It comes in handy for a lot of things from starting a campfire to skinning and gutting fish, to small repairs around camp. I even used this knife as a trowel when I forgot to bring mine on a trip. It is heavy duty and not too heavy. It's nice to have a tool… Full review

Spyderco Manix 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Great folding alternative for a camping / hiking knife. High quality steel, a handle that is comfortable in size, and easy to grip, dry or wet, but not too much grip. Sharpens easily, and holds an edge very well. if you have man hands standard or a bit bigger, you will find the grip on this knife just about perfect in most of the ways that you can hold the knife. The size in the pocket is just about right, between an Every Day Carry (EDC) size, and a size that is just able to baton (break into smaller… Full review

SOG Seal Team Elite

rated 5 of 5 stars Although sold as a tactical blade because of its serrated edge, this makes a great bush crafting knife for camp use. It is made of AUS-8 stainless and can be used in any environment. It has been heat treated and low temperature treated to become the tough, edge holding ultra knife. It is coated in black to avoid reflections and shed chemicals. It is a hollow grind to become shaving sharp. It is easy to sharpen with a diamond rod or just strop using white rouge on a piece of leather. This knife has… Full review

Gransfors Bruks Mini Hatchet

rated 4 of 5 stars Definitely a minimalist hatchet. I'd recommend a bigger one for most real hatchet work. I'm generally a fan of large knives for wilderness tasks. You can cut, chop, split, pry and poke with them, and I've just always had a knife. Recently I decided that I wanted to try my hand at using a good hatchet instead, just to change things up and to see life on the other side. After a little research, I decided on the smallest hatchet from Gransfors Bruks, the mini/belt hatchet (model 410).  From end to… Full review

Gerber Sliding Saw

rated 5 of 5 stars It weighs almost nothing, fits almost anywhere, and cuts almost anything (wooden). Worth its weight in gold. I've owned the Gerber Sliding Saw for a few years now, and I completely love it. I've broken a hefty inch or so off the tip of the blade from it getting snagged and kinking a few times, but most of it is still there and works like a champ. I've learned to focus more on the pulling action of the saw than the pushing, to avoid snagging and breaking more of the blade. I wouldn't call it brittle… Full review

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
