Camillus Bush Craft Knife

Country: United States
State: New Mexico
Age: 65 and over
Gender: Male
Used this knife for about a month in the field off and on.
Pro: MADE IN USA; substantial piece of steel that holds a good working edge; compact; full tang; very good blade geometry for limited uses; good grip geometry; excellent sheath. Con: heavy for size; balance pretty far back on handle for me which makes it feel stubby.
I don't know about Bush Crafting per se, I just thought there are things one learns when growing up about being comfortable in the woods/field. When in the field I have always had a minimalist approach - tarp not tent, very limited fire, green stick grills etc. That being said, this tool seems to be well designed but for a more limited purpose than what I consider general use. I prefer a more all around tool and found that I used the Knives of Alaska Bush Camp much more than the Camillus. Price is the same and I'd recommend the Bush Camp.
If the Camillus was an inch longer it would be a closer call... but it's not. Overall 3.5 stars.
