Opinel No. 8 Folding Knife

rated 5 of 5 stars Great knife. Super sharp and affordable. I have the stainless version of the Opinel no.8. I have since acquired other knives better suited for tougher tasks, but this stays in my pack. The knife was very sharp out of the box, and after sharpening it for the first time it retained a shaving-sharp edge. I mostly use this for food prep nowadays, but it could very well be used as an all-around knife. The spine of the blade has a sharp grind, which is great for striking ferro rods. Stainless steel isn't… Full review

Morakniv Companion

rated 5 of 5 stars The Morakniv Companion is an uncompromising work knife that is an excellent outdoor knife at an extraordinary price. Lightweight, easy to sharpen, and tough. The Morakniv Compaion with carbon steel blade is, in my opinion, the best value you can find for a basic work, camp, or kitchen knife. In addition, you can use it for things for which it wasn't designed. I'm not going over the specs because they've been covered in many other reviews. I bought the Companion new about three or four years ago… Full review

Morakniv Companion

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing knife. Razor sharp, incredibly tough, comfortable grip, and very affordable. I bought this knife to see what all the fuss was about with Mora knifes. I already owned other high quality knives, both folding and fixed blade. I mostly use this knife as an all-around tool for backcountry backpacking. The knife is very well designed. The shape and materials of the handle make it comfortable to use and provide a very secure grip. This was my first knife with a Scandinavian grind, and I quickly… Full review

Leatherman Juice Xe6

rated 4 of 5 stars This model is packed with tools. The width is deceiving in pictures but is close to 1 inch (2.54 cm). A very capable urban tool that has strong but non-locking blade positions. The usual screwdrivers and poke/puncture devices. Limit comes at wine opening! Basically this is your everyday weekend sub/urban warrior’s tool. It has everything 99% of those users need; however, I fault it one star because its heritage in its Leatherman lineage is the bartender’s tool and in this area, it stumbles. Full review

Leatherman Wave

Product is great. However the company has no costumer service skills at all. First, product is probably the best. However the company is the worst. They have a long way to go in the costumer service area. I ordered my Leatherman with engraving. When it arrived there was no engraving, so I contacted the company and they just wanted to refund the engraving cost. I was like, "no, I want the engraving." So they arranged to send it back. I think OK, not so bad, but then the fun begins. It gets back to… Full review

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife

rated 5 of 5 stars Great looking knife that feels good in the hand. Comes extremely sharp and has a built-in fire starter. I used this knife for the first time on an overnight hiking trip. Easily handled my wood prep and allowed me to slice down beautiful feather sticks. The knife's sharp spine threw a spark like nothing and made igniting my fire a breeze. Used it to slice and do my food prep. Have yet to use it for bushcraft, but am confident it will handle those tasks quite well. Great knife at a budget-friendly… Full review

Vargo Dig Dig Tool

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very strong, durable, and functional backpacking potty shovel and spare tent stake with the added benefit of potentially being useful for a number of other applications on a backcountry trip or around camp. When I first received the Dig Dig Tool my general impression was that the design was very utilitarian/functional. After taking the Dig Dig Tool out on several trips I have found that it does a great job doing what it is intended to do, which is to dig catholes. Design and Construction… Full review

Leatherman Rebar

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This multi-tool is definitely high-quality. It has a very solid feel and thus far seems to be built to last two lifetimes. The blades are sharp out of the package and all tools lock into place when being used. This also lends toward two significant issues, from my perspective, which are 1) the tools can only be accessed when the Rebar is opened up, and 2) opening or closing the Rebar requires two hands. This is my first Leatherman product and it was a gift. I have been familiar with the brand and… Full review

Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Hatchet

rated 5 of 5 stars This hatchet is a great everyday for anyone who is in the market for one. It is very versatile, and since it is made by Gerber it comes with a lifetime warranty. I absolutely love this little hatchet. It is great for just about any job that you would need it for. It has a sharp blade. The weight is balanced well, and you can even shave your wood if you so desire with the angle of the blade. Here's a little video I made about it: I hope this helped you to make your decision.  Full review
