I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, there was nothing cooler than a Swiss Army Knife. There’s always been something just so appealing about having all those gadgets in a pocket knife form that even now when I’m older, never goes out of style.
When people think of Swiss Army Knives, the image of the iconic red-handled pocket knife is probably what comes to mind, but they do a lot more than just that. Since Victorinox has been around since the late 1800s, there are innumerable models to choose from at this point, but we’ve narrowed it down to the Top 10 that we think represents the best of what this hallowed brand has to offer.
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
