Is there a new camping knife in your future? To make the right choice there’s a lot to consider. Whether you’re a weekend family camper, a backpacker, or a hardcore wilderness survivalist there are good, better, and best solutions for you.

A camping knife, by old-school definition, is a fixed blade knife with a heavy-duty blade. It has a large handle, and it's basically a big, heavy indestructible knife. The drawbacks of the traditional camping knife are; it's big and it's heavy. Now, imagine you're at your favorite campground and strapping a 14-inch long knife across your chest. This is not a tool for making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the kids.

Enter the modern camping knife. Checkout our comprehensive list of pros and cons plus a glossary of camping knife terms unique to knives below.  We've provided all the factors you'll need to consider in making your next selection.
