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

Buck 110 Folding Hunter

For a knife you depend on in the woods, this is your go-to blade. Solid, sharp, and rugged, this knife will help you notch for a shelter, skin for food, or start a fire. This knife works well in all regards. The lock is solid, blade is sharp, and the entire mechanism works flawlessly. Construction is very good. I have used this knife for over 20 years, and compared to my Case, Gerber, and Schrade, it outdoes them all. 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

Morakniv Companion

This beautiful knife came razor sharp, is easy to maintain a sharp edge, and the price to purchase was amazing. The sheath can easily have items attached. Best knife for your purchase. Overall, a well built, beautiful knife that is very affordable and worth every penny. The blade, handle, and sheath are all carefully thought through in design and at a price like this I think everyone should have one in their backpack for emergencies, bushcrafting, or even camping and hiking. A must have. Thanks,… Full review

Helle Trofé

The Trofé is a mid-sized Norwegian utility knife made from a quality, triple-laminated steel for durability and good edge retention. The knife is fashioned from traditional materials and housed in a traditional leather sheath. While it's not a "one-tool option," the Trofé is perfect for someone willing to pay a bit more for a quality knife that offers its user both the satisfaction of good performance and of considerable, traditional beauty. It is a great general camp knife (though not for batoning)… Full review

Gerber 06 FAST

Ideal for general purpose work. Described by Gerber as a large and solid tactical knife and I'm not going to disagree. I use a variety of knives for Forest School and bush-craft as well as general tasks around the house. I struck lucky at a car boot (swap meet) and paid a fiver for a £80 knife! Folding knives have their pros and cons. They are never going to be a strong or robust as a knife with a full tang. The hinge is its weakest point. Furthermore, the metal handle, whilst it is ergonomically… Full review

Buck CSAR-T Knife

It's a folding knife with fixed blade rigidity. Modified tanto blade shape for maximum penetration / cutting ability. Made with high quality materials (154CM blade, G10 Rocky Mountain scales). Holds an edge very well. Comes with nylon case and pocket clip. Several different varieties (EMS, folding, neck knife, fixed blade). Nearly indestructible... Ask anyone who spends any appreciable time in the outdoors, "What is the single most important tool you need on your person in an survival/emergency… Full review
