My go-to camp and backwoods knife. Good steel, solid grip, five UK pounds.

Pros

  • Crazy bargain pricing
  • Excellent steel
  • Beefy construction

Cons

  • Nope

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 rod, when you need them. Tough enough to baton branches for your fire and easily sharpened to feather sticks, strip bark, prune your shrubs, slice up your apple.

It's not flexible, so not a great spreader—but it'll fashion you a replacement tent peg quicker than almost any folding pen knife. The handle is two grades of plastic, which offer good grip with gloves, wet hands, frozen fingers...

The sheath can be attached to your overalls via a button, worn on your belt, or pretty much made to work however else you like to carry such a thing. I tried a Swedish style Dangler sheath mod, which is more comfortable than normal belt attachment but generally I just throw the knife and sheath into the lid pocket of my pack. The plastic sheath fits neatly and securely. After five years, I haven't known the knife to work itself loose, yet.

A five quid investment shouldn't pay dividends this big. If I mislay this thing, or my nephew takes a shine to it, another one is still £5.95, delivered.

Experience

Five years in my pack, jacket, or toolbox.
