Consider the benefits and drawbacks of your fixed knife, bolding blade or hunting knife. What might work well for some hunting endeavors may be ill-suited for another. Fixed blades are generally stronger because the blade runs through the handle. They also are more durable and reliable since there are no moving parts. They are ideal for when you need to do heavy-duty work.
Fixed blades are not ideal if you are climbing and sitting frequently as they easily get in the way when sheathed on your belt. Fixed blades are also longer, and the required sheath means they are bulkier to carry and not as safe when carrying them through the woods.
Like fixed blades, folding blades are not without drawbacks. Locking blade folders can make releasing your knife when you need it in a hurry a hassle. In addition, this type of blade presents cleaning difficulties as the channel that holds the blade when it’s retracted easily collects blood, tissue and other debris. Carefully weigh the pros and cons of each blade type, and pick the option that best suits your hunting needs.
When Looking at axes and machetes, take into consideration the activities you plan on doing during your next camping or hunting trip. Axe’s work best to break, chip, cut, hammer, dig, and pierce objects. Machete’s work best to limb saw and hammer. Both tools make a great addition to any outdoor adventure.
