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.
I always like to try out variations of Swiss Army Knives. I picked up the Compact with the idea that it would make a good knife to travel with. While some SAKs can go overboard with the number of tools they include, this one is refined down to a limited, but very versatile, toolset. Be sure to read my full review on TTAK. Spoiler alert: the blade rocked my socks!
One of the things all knife owners must be aware of, are the local rules and regulations regarding the edged tools they own. For those friends of mine who live in Boston, or work in federal buildings, that means blade lengths not exceeding 2.5 inches. That may not seem like much, but thanks to the Spyderco Cat G10 (read my review on The Truth About Knives) I now have a go-to recommendation for those people. Through smart design and excellent ergonomics, Spyderco has made a small knife that can handle bigger chores than most small knives.
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.
