Gerber Epic Knife

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent as a backup fixed blade when camping, or as an EMS boot knife. I like it because it's a "small-ish" fixed blade (better/stronger than folder) and it doesn't have a pronounced pointed tip to poke yourself/others with. Sharpens up nicely and has serrations for added oomph when cutting thicker things. What sold it for me was the sheath. I'm a volunteer EMS Medic and the fact I can securely carry it in my boot w/o being conspicuous is a huge deal. The extra long clip can be carried upright… Full review

TOPS Knives Steel Eagle 107C Delta

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid 7-inch full tang knife, with a functional saw on the back edge of the blade. Best used in the processing of firewood and as an all around knife for use in the backcountry. It has a super sturdy design, and can handle serious use and abuse. Highly recommend. This knife is an all around beast. I absolutely love it, works like a charm, holds its edge, is super sturdy, and can be used in a wide variety of ways from splitting logs by "batoning" through them, to sawing through small sticks or branches,… Full review

Morakniv Companion

rated 4 of 5 stars This lightweight knife will be the only one needed. Having a extensive collection of knives and katanas I've come to find that high carbon steel knives are my favorite. When compared to stainless steels, carbon is softer, but tougher. That means that it's easier to sharpen and less likely to chip, as it's not as brittle. It will rust if left wet, but that's not necessarily bad, as long as it's not kept wet to the point it eats away steel. The Companion comes very sharp and highly polished and all… Full review

Gerber Ghostrike Fixed Blade

rated 4 of 5 stars Awesome knife, very light, easy to conceal. I'm very happy with it. It fits nicely on my belt and it conceals very well. I certainly recommend it. Full review

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

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

Cold Steel Pendleton Hunter

rated 5 of 5 stars Good versatile outdoor knife. I have used this knife for the last years. For hunting, fishing, hiking, and general outdoors in Norway. This has ended up being my everyday knife. Works well for making up fish, meat, and firewood. The rubberized handle sticks in the hand even when wet. Well shaped blade, only a bit thick. I find this knife so well made that I have gotten the Penndleton Mini Hunter for my kids 5/9 years. The mini version is the best shaped knife I have seen for kids.  Full review
