Best Pocketknives - A guide to blades for the outdoorsman

One of the essentials for anyone going camping is the pocketknife. I’ve written previously that I usually take at least 3 knives with me on a typical trip and I think my most recent one saw me adding a fourth.

A good knife can be used to cut rope, remove a hangnail, to whittle a firestarter from a twig, and even just open a stubborn bag of chips. And that’s just for the blade. Multi-purpose knives like Swiss Army knives and Leathermans can open a bottle of beer or wine, remove a splinter, tighten a bolt, replace a golf divot, and even shed some light on the situation.
