I've started going camping a bit with some mates, and am in need of a general purpose camping knife; cutting through small branches, cutting cord, a bit of food, splitting (not cutting) larger branches/logs…really anything while camping!
I have some idea of a good steel/design for cooking knives, but I'm not sure what is generally considered the best design/steel/etc. for a good (but not just the most expensive) camping knife.
Any suggestions, or advice would be super appreciated! Even just a "look at steel X like knife Y" would be great.
REALLY appreciate all the amazing info below people. Clear and concise!
