Condor Tool & Knife Bushlore

A true bushman's knife for EDC...inexpensive but NOT cheaply made. Great for camping trips. Durable for medium use. Sleek design.     An incredibly sharp carbon steel blade with wood handle                             Condor Tool  &  Knife Bushlore About 7-8 years ago I purchased several different survival knives to test and review with this being one of them. I spent a few months researching and reading reviews of survival/bushman knives.

Hultafors Heavy Duty Knife GK

My go-to camp and backwoods knife. Good steel, solid grip, five UK pounds. I like a short fixed blade, around camp, in the woods or working in my garden.  I don't want to spend silly money, then be reluctant to cut things, with my expensive toy. Hultafors make a great, cheap blade—thick, strong, and easily sharpened—with a comfortable handle, then put it in a tricky sheath, which offers multiple carry options. Three millimetre Japanese knife steel. A spine that produces sparks from a ferro… Full review

Benchmade Bushcrafter Family

Fantastic knife with excellent ergonomics and a simple, stout, and sharp blade. With all the buzz around the word “Bushcraft“ in the past 5-10 years, it has almost become like “tactical“ (aka “tacticool”) with regard to items being marketed towards the Urban Lumberjack crowd that spends more bank on products for their beards per month than most families spend on groceries. I’m not sure which direction things like that are heading. Quite frankly, I don’t care. I needed a knife that… Full review

TOPS Knives Brakimo

Tops quality: great steel, holds an edge, micarta handles, and fits my hand like a glove. Kydex sheath with metal belt loop that rotates. The only thing I did differently was to add a 'D' ring and leather dangler. I recommend this product. This is my go-to knife for hiking and camping. It has great blade, steel that holds an edge no matter what I put it through. It was extremely sharp out of the box. The only thing I have done is run it over a strop after several uses. Scandi grind. Micarta handles… Full review

Morakniv Bushcraft Survival

Great quality-to-price ratio. Attached firestriker makes it not only knife but survival kit. Nice design, sturdy construction. Full review

Morakniv Companion Heavy Duty

Great value and surprised how well it has performed. Excellent utility and camp knife. Picked this up as a camp knife and ended up buying two more. Knife fits well in the scabbard and stays put. Perfect sized handle. Very durable, I use one as a utility knife, a second as a kitchen knife (holds an edge well, very sharp) and the third in my emergency kit. Again, I have own cheap knives and this just does not feel or act like a $20 Amazon knife. The Heavy Duty has a slightly thicker blade than the… Full review

Helle GT

An excellent hunting/canoe camp knife. Very high quality and partially hand made in Norway. My wife bought me the HELLE GT sheath knife for my birthday at the Fjallraven Store in Boulder, Colorado, this spring. The stainless steel laminated blade is its most outstanding feature as this creates a hard steel core for long lasting sharpness surrounded by resilient steel to give the core strength. While "heavy" at 7.3 oz. for a backpacking knife for the purposes I've listed above it is very well suited. Full review
