    Why do they call it a Swiss Army knife? It's got so many other tools on it they might as well just call it a Swiss Army scissor. Or a Swiss Army can opener. Furthermore camping and backpacking in general are two completely different activities.

    I see this time and time again… Some of the comments and thumbs downs are from people who know very little on knives other than what they think they've learned from an equally uniformed person – which is often their favorite YouTuber (I have some insight on what it takes to become a YouTuber and being an expert on the topics of your videos is not one of the qualifications). The Ka Bar is a time-tested tool and a useful one at that… Yes it is true that it was originally made for combat but it is more than capable of being used in a camping/outdoor role. I'm curious what kind of outdoor activities people are engaging in that is worse than being in a war zone. Buck knives and Mora knives are great but anyone who knows knives knows that they have vastly inferior steel to a Ka Bar. Also, the Ka Bar CAN "throw sparks" but how often is that what people look for when they select an outdoor knife (other than survivalist wannabes)? I challenge you all to learn from knowledgeable sources rather than think you know everything in a topic because you heard someone you find entertaining say something different.

    I carry a knife religiously. Whether it be my Buck 110, my Leatherman Wave multi-tool, or my always useful Victorinox Huntsman I've always got a good, quality cutting tool in my pocket or on my belt. Sometimes ill carry all three! You never know when you're going to need one or the other.
