Make dinner time on the trail a lot more convenient by packing along the Buck Travelmate Kit. This single-unit spacesaver combines a 4.87-inch, 410HC stainless steel blade that's serrated for spreading, slicing, and chopping with an antimirobial, injection-molded sheath. Set into the sheath is a handy fork, that also works as a bottle opener, can opener, flathead screwdriver, and grill scraper. That's a lot of utility, packed in not a lot of space.
As it turns out, files are great sources of high carbon steel. Which is why the Civilware Striker II Utility Knife is crafted from one. First, the file goes through an annealing process to remove the brittleness, and is then hand ground to shape in California, resulting in a versatile 3.75" blade with a unique patina that holds an edge well and sharpens easily. It's paired with a 4" Micarta composite handle and an included leather sheath that works whether you're a lefty or a righty.
