The Best Pocket Knives for Camping, Hiking, Bushcraft & Survival

While we would always recommend a good fixed blade for camping there’s plenty of scenarios where you’d want a good folder at your side as well. Not everyone is comfortable carrying a fixed blade or maybe you’re looking for a nice backup/complement to your larger knife. In some cases, you may not even be able to carry a fixed blade. Luckily if you need to go with a folder there are a ton of great options out there and we’ve pulled our top ten for you to consider.

We will lay out some of our top choices below, but first, we will lay out a few features you will want to look for when choosing a knife for the outdoors so you can choose your own if our suggestions don’t do it for you. Continue Reading

Mini Holiday Gift Guide: Outdoor & Survival Gear

Victorinox Hunter Pro Lockback Folders

While all of the Hunter Pro models here are certainly great for backcountry EDC, our favorite from the lineup has to be the silver Alox variant with its removable pocket clip and integrated lanyard hole. The scales are ribbed, allowing for a unique grip that will provide plenty of traction in wet environments. These traditional lockback hunting knives have been field tested to ensure quality performance.

Columbia River Williams Shinbu

Columbia River Williams Shinbu

New from Columbia River Knife and Tool, it’s the stunning new Shinbu, designed by James Williams. It boasts an aggressive tanto-style blade made from YK-30 steel, cord-wrapping over stingray skin handle, and comes in a custom dark lacquer wooden presentation and storage. Make no mistake, however; this isn’t a museum piece-it was designed for our coalition forces serving overseas. Ships with a custom-fitted Kydex® sheath which can be belt-mounted.

Columbia River M6014NKI Medium Size Combat Fixed Blade

Columbia River M6014NKI Medium Size Combat Fixed Blade
SPECIAL! Columbia River M6014NKI Medium Size Combat Fixed Blade
Columbia River Knife and Tool has had some great knives though the years. The M60 series of combat knives were some of them but they are now mostly unavailable. The M6014 is the smaller size fixed blade, but it has all the bells and whistles and we got some in at a fantastic price. These have the inscription “Operation Iraqi Freedom Certified” on the blade. The sheath is really a deluxe combat Nylon model with a lot of attachment options. So, with this closeout sale, you get a well designed and well made combat knife with a 4.5″ Tanto partially serrated blade made of AUS 8 stainless, a top quality combat sheath all at the amazing price of $32.95. These can, of course, be used for a wide variety of applications- they are easy to carry and lightweight and so they will work well for camping and hiking. This is a special purchase, so grab one (or more!) if it suits you. We’ll feature them on a sale list next week and may sell through quickly, but the blog readers deserve a few days lead time on this great deal.

How to make one of the best folding combat knives even better? Just ask Columbia River Knife and Tool and custom knife maker Kit Carson. They took the M1614 knife which has been one of the best selling folding knives of all time, and added just enough to turn a combat knife into a rescue/combat knife. They added a belt cutter to the flipper and a window glass breaker to the tail end of the handle. This knife is made for work. Columbia River has done an excellent job.
