Knife and Tool Buyer's Guide

Provided By: 

From the pages of Camping Life Magazine

Everyone who ventures into the outdoors for any amount of time should carry a good knife. It’s considered one of the “10 Essentials” and can be used for whittling fire starters from twigs, cutting rope and cord, slicing open packages of potato chips, and all of those other important needs for a sharp blade that present themselves in camp.

BUCK

New from the inventive minds at Buck is the Buck/Whittaker X-Tract Multi-Tool. Continuing the one-handed operation theme prevalent in the outdoor knife and tool industry, the X-Tract offers the tools you need for everyday adventure with one-handed access through the company’s patent-pending Button Lock Leverage System. With the push of the thumb, you have spring-loaded needle nose pliers with wire cutters, a can/bottle opener, Phillips and standard screwdrivers, and a goodly sized Buck blade. The X-Tract comes with a lanyard hole on one end so it can be tethered to you or your pack. MSRP: $50. Buck: 800/326-2825; http://www.buckknives.com/

WENGER

After the successful introduction of the EVOlution Swiss Army Knife series in 2005 and EVO “S” series of locking blade knifes in 2006, Wenger is going one step further for 2007 with the EvoGrip Series. The new knives are highlighted by rubberized inlays on the handles that are made from a non-slip material with a soft finish. The end result is a knife handle with a better hand-grip surface for those times when you need to do some hard work with the blade or one of the tools. Seven new models are in the Swiss Army EvoGrip Series (Model 554 pictured) with different sizes and functions, including all the traditional Swiss Army tools and blade choices. MSRP: $34.95 to $64.95. Wenger: 800/431-2996; http://www.wengerna.com/index.html

BENCHMADE

The Rukus knife from Benchmade was a big hit last year, so for 2007, the company has rolled out the Mini-Rukus. The Mini, like its big brother, uses the Benchmade-exclusive AXIS mechanics providing smooth one–hand ambidextrous opening, and a two-part handle assembly offering the ability to change and customize the handle scales. Its 4.25-inch, utility drop-point blade is super-strong S30V steel, and blade options include satin or a black-coated finish with or without partial serrations. This is a sturdy, high-end knife that can handle big jobs. MSRP: $220. Benchmade: 800/800-7427; http://www.benchmade.com/

COLUMBIA RIVER

Small, light, and easy to get to—that’s the Dogfish from Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT). A neck knife with style, the Dogfish offers a secure grip, lanyard hole, and a bottle opener. It’s cut from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, then given a bevel-ground 2.25-inch modified Wharncliffe blade, and given a bead-blast finish and your choice of straight or straight/serrated edge. The Kydex sheath grips the knife securely for inverted carry and a neck chain is included—perfect for kayakers or canoeists, or those who just like to hike ligh...
