I just finished up my review of Condor’s Nessmuk. Thanks to a friend who lent it to me for review, I was able to cut, carve, chop, split, drill, and pry through a series of tests to see whether, or not, this blade would make a good camp knife.
The results were a bit of a mixed bag. Click over to the full review on TTAK for a little history lesson, more photos, and the final results.
For the beginning camper, you really can’t go wrong with a Mora as a first knife. They are sturdy, take a fine edge, and best of all they won’t break the bank if you somehow manage to ruin one! Read my writeup of the TopQ Allround at The Truth About Knives.
I have finished my testing and full review of the RSK Mk6. Read it on The Truth About Knives. Verdict? Not great, but not bad either. I dig it.
Batoning, according to Wikipedia, “is the technique of cutting or splitting wood by using a baton-sized stick or mallet to repeatedly strike the spine of a sturdy knife, chisel or blade in order to drive it through wood.”
This is a somewhat controversial subject that is typically thought of as a “survival” technique. To find out why the average camper would want to use this method for splitting wood, read my write-up over at The Truth About Knives.
