Best Camping Knives: Our picks


Labor Day is just around the corner, which means everyone’s favorite time to camp is near too. When it comes to packing your backpack for your next camping trip, don’t forget about essential kitchen gear such as camping knives. Now, the choice of a knife depends on the type of camping you’re planning to do. Is it “glamping” in a well-prepared campsite? Or is it a 2-week long Patagonian expedition?

In both cases, you'll need a multipurpose knife, but when you’re out in the wilderness with just one small tent, and a backpack, you better pack a heavy-duty knife with yourself. And if you don’t own one, we’ve got your back with this list. Here you will find our picks for the best camping knife.
