Without further ado, we offer up a few adventurous activities and settings in which you will need a custom, handy knife.
One time when you will definitely need a knife is when you are backpacking. There are several uses for a knife when you are out braving the elements in a tent or under the stars, if you’re really adventurous. The times in which you will need a knife are: when you are opening packets or cans of food, when you are trying to start a fire by making a spark with a firesteel, when you are cutting up wood and preparing kindling for a fire, when you are cutting any kind of cord, and when you are attending to your feet especially as gear pertains to them (i.e. when you are cutting moleskin, cleaning nails or attending to blisters). As you can see there are a lot of uses for a knife during backpacking. When you are backpacking, you will want a knife that can do all of those many jobs. That’s why a swiss army knife is the perfect choice for someone who is backpacking. The swiss army knife has a myriad of functions, including large tools such as: a large blade, a small blade, a nail file, a nail file/nail cleaner/metal file/metal saw, wood saw, fisch scaler, scissors, electrician’s blade, pruning blade, pharmaceutical spatula, cyber tool/bit driver, pliers/wire cutter, led light, usb stick, magnifying lens, phillips screwdriver, hoof cleaner, shackle opener, can opener, cap opener and combination tool containing cap/can openers. However, a swiss army knife can’t cover every single one of your outdoor needs. There are more specific knives you may need depending on the outdoors activities you choose to engage in while on a hiking/backpacking trip. If you are into rock-climbing, especially, you will need to consider getting an ultra-light climber’s knife. A rock-climbing knife will help you have the best, safest climb possible.
