While at SHOT Show, we decided to stop by and visit our friends over at ESEE and see some of the great new survival knives that they have to offer. To see the latest from ESEE, head over to the KnifeCenter.
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.
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.
With fall approaching, those of us who love to spend our time outdoors are eagerly awaiting some casual bushcrafting and hunting adventures without the summer heat or winter freeze. Whether you are a casual trekker or a seasoned hunter, now is the perfect time to get out and play with your favorite blades. For all you outdoorsmen on a budget out there, we’ve pulled together what we feel is some of the most essential hunting and outdoor gear under $50. Now you can focus solely on the right thing – The Hunt.
We’ve asked our social media followers before what they prefer for their hunting adventures – a solid full-tang fixed blade or a knife with replaceable blades. The results were surprisingly even. Replaceable blades are great for lessening the weight of your pack and they keep you from needing to sharpen while field dressing your game. Havalon’s Piranta knives make it easy– when the blade gets dull, just pop it off and replace it with a razor sharp new one. For less than thirty-six bucks, you’ll get thirteen replacement blades, a rugged, stain resistant handle with a grippy rubber inlay, and a durable Nylon holster. For the hunters looking to speed up their field dressing and skinning processes, the Piranta may be the best knife option for you.
It’s mid-August, and we here in Fredericksburg, Virginia still have plenty of time to get some solid camping sessions in before winter makes it extra fun. If you’re looking to upgrade your pack or pocket with some new outdoor essentials, you’ll find some great options in this list of eight must-have survivalist tools.
The Ignitor sets the standard for value-priced, high-tech folding knives with its patented features and layered G10 handle scales. Not only do you get the surefire action of its OutBurst assisted deployment, but you also get the security of CRKT’s patent-pending Fire Safe mechanism. This design offers the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we’ve ever seen in a sport or work folder. We have plain blade options and models with Veff serrations, which are great for cutting cord, netting, and vegetation quickly.
