That makes almost every type of prep, from slicing and dicing to mincing and chicken boning, feel awkward at best and dangerous at worst. It weighs in at 7.72 ounces, making it ideal for carrying long distances.

However, the heft of this knife means that it can cut through branches and small logs with ease. This handle is designed to be resistant to water and abrasion to make it especially strong. The handle of the blade is also set with a liner lock that holds it open during use. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. The blade is especially sharp and has been designed to retain its edge well. This has been designed with a loop to allow you to carry your knife on your hip. It features a combination edge that makes it ideal for a wide range of tasks.

While this knife comes with a sheath, you are likely to find that it is quite thin. I think the sheath leaves something to be desired, but I’ll accept that considering that the knife is high quality.While its probably the best knife for camping, the higher cost may put some people off. As I grew up to become an outdoor guide and of late, a blacksmith, the role of knives in my life evolved through many stages. This is also set with a lanyard hole that matches up to the hole in the knife handle. All that said, the Zwilling's cuts were consistently clean, it felt comfortable in my hand, and for $50, I'd be more than happy to add this knife to my kitchen. Unless you’re paying top dollar for your knife, don’t get hung up on the steel type. This is worth considering as well. I’ll even recommend a full bevel, where the knife is ground from blade to spine in a single continuous slant. This material is known for being much tougher than stainless steel and is very easy to sharpen. If you are inexperienced in knife sharpening, you are likely to find that this is a real chore. They put a ferro rod in the sheath like the Gerber Bear Grylls knife, but instead of serrations they opted for a webbing cutter on the sheath! The lanyard hole in the sheath matches up with the hole in the knife handle. Years of experience have taught me to pack light. I will make a note that some modern camping and survival knives like to hollow out the handle and hide survival supplies inside. Even when you are wearing gloves in the winter, you are sure to be able to get a good grip. It has been set with a special clip so that you can hold it on your hip. The heavier knife weight helps guide the blade in consistent movements as you use it, but the Wusthof isn't so heavy that you ever feel controlled by the blade. All that being said, it’s quite possible to narrow down the field first, to help you identify a knife that might be best for you. With its specially shaped blade, the Schrade SCHF9 12.1in High Carbon Steel Fixed Blade Knife is at the top of its class. This one earns top marks for blade design, handle design, and color. In fact, the Morakniv Companion Spark 3.9-Inch Fixed-Blade Outdoor Knife comes complete with a lifetime warranty. When you choose this knife you are also treated to a matching nylon sheath. It comes complete with two adjustable straps that you can attach to your leg. As my primary knife I want a fixed blade but this would be my choice for the best folding knife for camping. I also more recently tested the $445 Chef's Knife from American company Artisan Revere. You will not have to worry about cutting yourself accidentally, as the knife comes complete with a matching sheath. This pocket folder comes with a pocket clip, low profile, and fine-edge blade lacking serrations.

The light weight and cheap design mean you don't get the long life or the full versatility you'd get from a workhorse like the Wusthof, but if you're wanting a starter chef's knife to learn for six months while you save for a bigger investment, the Mercer really is a great cook's knife. Going into the wilderness can be seen as a rite of passage for some people. This is the only knife in our lineup that is a clear holdover to the times of old. The ESEE ESLSP-BRK Laser Strike boasts an especially durable and versatile design. This means that it will be difficult to get a good grip on occasions when you need extra leverage.

However, all in all, you are sure to find that this is one of the best hunting knives around. Not only is the Mac super sharp (it slides through tomatoes without any tearing whatsoever), but its blade is thinner than heavier knives like Wusthof's, which makes slicing snappier veggies like carrots feel like cutting a ripe banana with a butter knife. The knife boasts a full tang blade and has been made of VG10 steel, which is of the highest quality. We'll update this list periodically. It’s got over 30 different functions from screwdrivers to cork screws.I will mention that I find many of the features on the full-size Swiss Army Knife don’t get used very often. Not only is the handle designed to resist moisture, but it is also set with a double finger guard for an improved grip. Mercer, Zwilling and to a lesser degree,  offered solid performance and well-balanced products for beginners looking for a bargain (Victorinox gets a lot of love online for its price tag and balance, but it's more expensive than the $16 Mercer and not quite as well balanced).
I love the full tang construction and nearly indestructible micarta handle. The sheath comes with a Velcro strip and belt loop so that you can attach it to your gear in different ways. The handle is also set with Thermo Plastic Elastomer scales that cushion the hand while delivering a solid grip. I love that they put the striking groove on the spine of the knife to avoid dulling the blade by striking the ferro rod. While the length of the blade is less than four inches long, the knife is quite hefty. No survival knife is useful if you set it down and can’t see it amongst the leaves! Why?Because these characteristics are rugged, universal, and the full bevel strikes me as perhaps the best overall design for splitting wood (in the same manner as a froe). But for a tool you use in the kitchen so much, there are so many different options. If you want to put your survival skills to the test, this is the perfect knife to take on a trip.

There is also a clip on the sheath so that you can attach it to your belt loop or the outside of a bag. If you have larger hands, you are likely to find that small knives are a bit hard to handle. And if perfectly minced herbs and delicately sliced fish were more common cuts in my kitchen, Mac might take the crown. Perhaps my all-around favorite survival knife, the KA-BAR Becker BK2 Campanion has all of the features of an amazing tool for keeping me alive in the outdoors. This model is designed to be durable and sturdy, which is sure to give you peace of mind. This model is supplied with a heavy-duty polyester sheath to keep it secure when not in use. The most common edge is the straight edge. One of the first things that will attract the attention of new knife enthusiasts is the type of steel the knife is made from.
