When it comes to backwoods camping, a good knife is an essential tool to have on hand. A quality knife can be used for everything from preparing food to starting a fire and building shelter. When choosing a knife for backwoods camping, it’s crucial to opt for one that is durable, reliable, and easy to maintain. It should also have a fixed blade for added stability and control and a full tang for added strength. Additionally, it’s important to choose a blade suitable for the tasks you’re likely to encounter. Bear Forest Knives Introduces three knives for your next camping adventure—The Simple 2, PuuMuk, and Wood Butcher.
The Simple 2- The Simple 2 is another offering in The Simple series–minus two inches! We took a full-sized Simple and scaled it down–making it more streamlined. The steel is also different; we went with AEB-L Stainless steel with excellent results. This steel introduces exceptional corrosion resistance and edge-holding abilities without giving up toughness, as the size of the knife dictates what it is meant for–carving and slicing! The Simple 2 is less intrusive on the belt and lighter. It can also be made into a neck knife by adding cordage and removing the pocket clip. The true GEM is the thin 1/16″ thin blade making it a stellar cutting, slicing, and carving Bushcrafting tool!
