If your knife needs are a little more serious – say wittling an eating utensil or skinning and gutting an animal, then the carbon steel blade on the Bushcraft Black should have you covered. The 3.2mm blade is coated to prevent corrosion and the handle is rubberised, ergonomic and grippy. The back edge is squared off and great for generating a spark with a flint (not supplied). The base of the handle is solid enough to use as a small hammer. The sheath is plastic and looks a bit basic, but has a hole to drain water and comes with a variety of attachments for trousers or belt. This is far from a penknife, and will be overkill (pardon the pun) for outdoor sports, but for Bushcrafters there can’t be many better tools. Weight 161g.
VERDICT: Sharp, solid and very durable knife.
BEST FOR: Bushcraft – preparing food and fire.
