Time for our last look at some of the best outdoor, hunting, bushcraft, and survival knives in 2019! We’ve got some cool stuff to show you this week, including a new Micarta slipjoint from Real Steel, a bold new expansion in the Old Hickory lineup, the perfect Leatherman for the outdoorsman, and more.

Real Steel Gslip KnifeCenter Exclusive Micarta Slipjoint

Real Steel Gslip, KnifeCenter Exclusive Micarta

If you appreciate classic construction but like modern materials, then this KnifeCenter Exclusive Real Steel Gslip is for you. VG-10 steel is just the start, offering great stainless qualities and capable edge retention, but the Micarta handles really steal the show by offering a warm feel and just enough grip. There is even a reversible wire pocket clip so you don’t have to fish around in your pockets like with a traditional slipjoint.

Old Hickory Hunting Knife

Old Hickory 5.5" Hunting Knife

It is a brave new world for Old Hickory. Inspired by a popular user modification, their Hunting Knife offers a shortened version of their popular butcher knives. And by including a leather sheath right from the factory, you don’t need to do anything to get these knives ready to head outdoors straight from the box. They are still a great platform for further modification if you wish, but for an American-made outdoor knife at this price point, it will be hard to find a better option for the camper, hiker, or hunter on a budget.

Spyderco Stretch 2 Lightweight Folding Knife

Spyderco Stretch 2 Folding Hunter

Spyderco’s answer to the folding hunter, the Stretch 2 offers their lightweight FRN construction, strong mid-back lock, and their useful finger choil for extra control.

With fully ambidextrous hardware, this is an easy recommendation for not just hunters, but anyone who likes a hardworking blade.
