100% Swiss made
The Camp Knife is designed for splitting and carving in and around the camp. It is lighter and much smaller than the parang and fits in every camping pack.
The blade of the Camp Knife is manufactured from German Boehler N540 stainless steel. This material is rust-resistant, extremely robust and is easy to resharpen. Outdoor lovers looking to be totally selfsufficient will find a perfect companion in the Camp Knife.
The Camp Knife is…
||blade formed from durable German Boehler N540 stainless steel
||Fits in every backpack, has excellent splitting abilities for his weight and size
||ideal for collecting firewood, disbranching, splitting, carving and chopping; for use as a draw- or clapboard knife; suitable for shaping a bow
Cornel cherry wood (dogwood family) is used when durability is required (e.g. for hammer shafts and cogwheels in mills). The wood used in the parang’s handle comes from a closed textile shuttle factory and has been expertly stored for over 60 years. A piece of Swiss industrial history lies in the handle of the Camp Knife as well as in each of the Outdoorwerk knives.
Batoning: Wood splitting made easy
The safest and efficient way to split wood is called “batoning”: one places the blade on the wood that’s to be split and, using another piece of wood, pounds on the back of the blade from above. This method may be used if there is no stable, horizontal surface to split wood on. The Camp Knife and the Outdoor knifes are perfectly suitable for use with this technique.
The ideal shape of the blade
The industry rarely produces convex blades anymore. Hollow-cut (concave) and straight blades are easier to manufacture but are generally less stable. The convex shape is perfect for the intended applications of the Camp Knife.
