The Bladelight Camp is a very cool fixed blade by SOG. One might think that a “blade light” sounds kinda gimmicky, and it does, but the new SOG Bladelite actually “works”. I personally don’t think the blade itself (although it is adequate) is the best part of the overall offering. What makes the Bladelight is the sheath and the surprisingly powerful light. Although listed at ~ 37 Lumens, the light is emitted from 6 small bulbs making for a very powerful and focused beam. The light does not just work unsheathed, but with the sheath on as well – this is made possible by the six cutouts on the sheath and the Bladelight is equally bright with the sheath on or off. The sheath also features an indentation enabling the knife to make small wire/line cuts even when sheathed. Also there is a built-in sharpener on the sheath which is kinda handy. Now, more on the knife itself – it has a pretty good feel and the non-slip rubber handle makes it moderately grippy….and if you do drop it and it happens to break – it’s got a lifetime warranty so SOG will send ya a new one. The steel is 8Cr13MoV which is a good “value steel” with a decent balance of edge holding and corrosion resistance properties. Here at KnifeCenter, you can get this one with the satin blade and white light or with a black blade and red LED – KnifeCenter also offers a fillet knife version.
