Mrshonts and I are going to be backpacking all spring and summer, and so I've attached my Ka-Bar Camp Knife to my backpack. It's mounted upside-down for swift left-hand draw. I'm not sure what I'll need to draw down on swiftly with my Ka-Bar, but any "edge" I can get, I'll do.
It's already had good duty hacking firewood for camp fires, and it does an excellent job of it. The deep belly is a great shape for this job. The Ka-Bar Camp Knife is a good general outdoor use knife.
The black coating helps resists rust, and the grips fit my hands well and aren't slippery, even after some long, tiring hacking.
I accidentally hit some rock and chipped a bit out of the edge, but my EdgePro fixed it in no time.
I gave my old BK&T Combat Utility 7 to mrshonts, and he has strapped to his backpack. That big knife was better suited for his big paws.
