Ka-Bar Hobo tool

I am going to do a really quick review of the Ka-Bar Hobo camping tool.  I have not gotten to take this out in the wild yet but i have used it around the house some to test it out.

 

When i first saw this i didn’t know what it was.  I thought it would be gimmicky but fun, and for the price who could say no.  Once i tool it home and i realized that all the utensils came apart, i knew that this would be a useful tool to have in my kit

First Review Series: Knives

IMG_2250

This is the introduction to a new series we will be starting Survival Knives big and small. We are going to review several common and inexpensive survival knives with one near the top end of what we would call inexpensive averaging 120 retail for the most expensive and 11 dollars for the least expensive of the knives. Some are moras some are kbar some buck some winchester some are gerber but all are readily available to most people in the US and many are available to people in other countries as well. We are going to review each and put it through its paces and let you know how they do. We are starting with the knives that I own. Each was purchased with my own funds and not provided by any company. We will let you know how they work and how they hold up for a variety of tasks. Hope you enjoy.

B.O.B. Fieldcraft Knife review

For the last year I have been using a BOB fieldcraft from Tops Knives.  I am going to do a short review on the knife. It is a good blade and right now it is only limited by the skill i have using it. Each time I take it out I am finding it works better and this is showing me that I have much more to learn and I am limiting the product right now.

So how does it work? It splits wood very well and holds up to batoning well. It is thick and stays very sharp. I have had trouble using it for fine carving tasks because the blade is so large, however i am getting better at it again this is my skill level not the knife that is having the issue.

Gerber Remix

This is the Gerber Remix Fine edge.  This is the knife that I carry in my pocket every day.  It has a 2.9inch blade.  I find the o-ring to be very handy when using the knife, it give me much better control of the blade.  The Belt clip is solid, i use it all day to keep it clipped inside my pocket.   I use this all the time and try to never leave home with out it.
