Re: Camp Knife

Since there is not a shortage of money on the SMB forum
do take a look at Benchmade Gold class knives.

http://www.benchmade.com/products/produ ... class=gold

The biggest issue with them is they are made in small numbers.
I have not been able to acquire the model I want yet...

Benchmade have not gone gimmicky with their designs. The best IMO.
Boker has some very fine knives also. Usually with Solingen German steel or Damascus.
Gerber has gone orient with their manufacture.
Bucks USA made models are still high quality.
CRKT has cool knives. Make sure you get AUS8 steel (not aus6) as their steel is softer (dulls quicker).

There is definitely a difference between daily carry and collector knives.

Beautiful sheaths Bill.

My Benchmade 4th down I carry daily.


Among others.

Re: Camp Knife

Should we not forget Chris Reeve and his Sebenza's?

Re: Camp Knife

Glad to see some have fine tastes in knives!
Knives are cool. There is technology on the nice ones.

Here is our camp kitchen slicer & dicer.
Rachel Ray branded lol, but a nice sheath. Good steel.

Re: Camp Knife

New Additions!

Here is a cheaper (asian origin) Kershaw knife. Fixed boot knife that will go on my waist.
Good camp knife.



And here is a William Henry knife. Most inexpensive WH I have run into, although still high as far as common knives go.
D2 steel and burled inlay folder. Sharp!

Re: Camp Knife

My EDC is a Ka Bar Dozier Hunter. Its a folding knife with 3" blade. Pretty low profile handle and clips into my pocket without any friction. And its priced so that you are not afraid to put it to work....lets be honest....thats why its in your pocket...to put it to work. http://www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store ... l?s=KA4062

For camping I went with Ka Bar again and chose the Becker Campanion....It can pry, cut, & split, so needless to say its a fixed blade beast (5.25" blade). Its my its work horse and priced "well". Not really something you roll around with in public but for a camping knife it can handle the workload no sweat. You can ditch the stock grip (glass nylon) and put on a micarta handle for extra gripyness . http://www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store ... ml?s=KABK2

Skinning wild boar I went with the Spyder Co Bill Moran. Well balanced and sharp as heck out of the box. Adjustable sheath...vertical, 45*, or horizontal. http://www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store ... l?s=SPFB02


The beauty of it all is that there are sooooo many designs and styles to fit your needs...I use the http://www.knifecenter.com/ to sift through them all.....though by now I'm sure you already knew that.
