- What’s a bushcraft knife used for?
A bushcraft knife is a fixed blade that can perform a variety of jobs that come up when you’re “out in the wild”. It does everything from cutting cord and skinning an animal to whittling a stick into a cooking implement and splitting branches into kindling.
- What’s the best kind of steel to look for in a bushcraft knife?
Generally, you want a steel like high carbon that is going to be tough enough to handle hard-use daily.
- Is a wooden handle or a synthetic handle better for a bushcraft knife?
The most important thing to consider is how grippy the handle is. A bushcraft knife has to perform in any environment and not slip in your hand.
