Outdoor & Survival Gear Roundup Title Graphic

This week we have a great deal on a sturdy fixed blade from Benchmade, a new Limited Swiss Army Knife from Victorinox, and a bunch of new L.T. Wright fixed blades to take a look at. See all those and more below!

L.T. Wright Handcrafted Fixed Blades

L.T. Wright GP Medium with Desert Ironwood and Orange G10 Liners on burlap

When you think of a hard-use bushcraft knife, the name L.T. Wright Knives should be at the top of your list. Handcrafted in Ohio, they have built a reputation of making a quality tool that just won’t quit, turning out both classic and modern patterns that come with a lifetime warranty just in case. We recently received a new batch that you’ll want to see, including the beautiful new GP Medium with desert ironwood scales and orange liners pictured above.

Leatherman Signal Outdoor Multi-Tools

Leatherman Signal Multi-Tool half open on burlap

If you don’t have a Leatherman multi-tool in both your survival and go-bags, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Nothing gives you as much functionality in such a compact package, and we think the Signal is one of their best full-size models for the bushcrafter or outdoorsman. It’s outfitted with an array of tools and additional goodies – like safety whistle, ferro rod, and diamond sharpener – that allow it to shine out in the bush.

Benchmade 202 Leuku with 3V Steel

Benchmade 202 Leuku on burlap

Inspired by traditional Scandinavian knife patterns, the American-made Benchmade Leuku represents a heck of a bargain. Featuring premium 3V steel, it has an ideal combination of toughness and edge retention that is perfect for an outdoor knife. The Santoprene handles molded over the full tang are executed nicely as well. They are contoured perfectly, keep your hands from touching bare metal, and provide gobs of grip when conditions get cold or wet. The bushcraft sheath that is included perfectly rounds out the package with classic leather looks and multiple carry options.

Buck Selkirk Survival Folders, Fixed Blades, More

Buck Large Selkirk Folder and Sheath on burlap

The Selkirk isn’t your typical-looking Buck Knife, and they are built for rugged survival conditions and available as a fixed blade or folder, each in two sizes. Take them into the woods or wilderness and the drop point blades are perfect for any task you can think of. Our favorite part is the heavily contoured Micarta handle scales (yes, even on the folders!) that make these knives very comfortable to use hard. Bonus: the larger sized fixed blade and folder even feature a heavy-duty Kydex sheath with a combination fire starter and safety whistle.

Victorinox Swiss Army 2020 LE Swiss Spirit Explorer

Victorinox Swiss Army 2020 Limited Edition Swiss Spirit Explorer on burlap

Swiss Army Knives don’t get much more Swiss than this new limited edition Explorer! Not only do the scales boast scenes from the Swiss alpine, but they also contain goodies like a sewing pin and pressurized pen in addition to the usual toothpick and tweezers. Beyond that, the Explorer model has the perfect blend of tools to navigate both daily life and your adventures on the weekend, including dual blades, scissors, even a magnifying glass, and more.

Marble’s Camp Axe with American Hickory Handle

Marble's Camp Axe on burlap and cut branches

Sometimes, you don’t need something too fancy with extra features that get in the way. Instead you need a tool that is built for purpose and just plain works. That is where this hatchet from Marble’s comes in – the distillation of the camp axe form that is ready to chop, split, hammer, and carve its way through your next adventure. Made in El Salvador with an American hickory handle, it is the perfect combination of performance and affordability.

DPx HEST/F Hard Use Folders & Fixed Blades

DPx Gear HEST/F 3.0 Ti Decade on burlap

The HEST folder is a hard-use, survival, tactical tank of a pocket knife: tough enough for demanding work but small enough to carry every day. The beefy blade incorporates a cap lifter/pocket deployer and wire breakers to add extra grunt, and the Italian-made models even incorporate a RotoBlock to bolster the strength of the already tough framelock. For even more strength you can get the fixed blade version which is made in the USA by Rowen (the same folks who make ESEE Knives) so you can be confident they are built to last!
