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
We’re featuring another round of great outdoor knives and survival gear that are awesome gift ideas, including handy tools that will make picking the perfect Christmas tree a cinch this year. Let us know in the comments what you think!
We can safely say that we’ve never been bored by a Swiss Army multi-tool design, and the nautical camouflage pattern on this new collection of Victorinox knives continues that tradition. You’ll have your choice of Classic SD, Skipper and Huntsman models, which give you up to 14 integrated functions. This holiday season, skip the lame stuffers and add these to your family’s stockings. Multi-tools make great gifts for everyone, and these unique colors are sure to be a hit this holiday season.
We have a great collection of do-it-yourself knife sets, training tools, and wooden knives that are perfect for those of us who don’t just want to collect knives, we want to put them together ourselves. Better yet, why not make it a fun holiday activity and get everyone in on the action? While many of these knives are designed with unsharpened edges, keep in mind they are still knives. They’re not toys – they’re teaching tools. These kits and training knives are perfect for educating your friends and family about the ins and outs of knife maintenance, care, and how to operate knives safely. There are a ton of options that range from cool fidget spinners to wooden practice folders, but we have a few favorites we recommend checking out.
From folders to trappers to tactical knives, Jameson Woodworks’ Knife Kits feature hand cut DIY kits that you can put together with your family or friends for the ultimate holiday bonding experience. These are USA-made and super affordable, making them terrific stocking stuffers. You can also easily sand down the points on these wooden models a bit more if you plan on letting younger kids get in on the fun, too. If you want to forgo the wooden pieces in favor of plastic, Klecker Knives has some great folding plastic knife kits in a variety of colors.
The season for giving is upon us, and that can mean one of two things: you spend your valuable time researching the best outdoor knives or you let your friends over here at KnifeCenter do the job for you. We’ll keep this guide short and sweet – just eight outdoor/survival essentials that would make great gifts for yourself or others. If you have someone in your life that spends more time outdoors than indoors, the right present for them is on this list!
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.
