Customer Reviews

Camillus Bushcrafter 8.5" Fixed Blade Knife with Leather Sheath is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife for the outdoors Great knife for a specific purpose... Bushcraft, camping and outdoors. Belly of the blade would be suitable for skinning and food prep, but the scandi grind excels at cutting wood and carving. The 1095 carbon blade is the standard for knives of this genre and price point and it did not disappoint. I added a divot to the durable hande to utilize a bow drill spindle to make it a versatile and formidable bushcraft blade. The leather sheath is quality and houses the knife well. It's a heavy durable knife not really appropriate for neck carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great working knife I carry this knife more days than not for use around the ranch. I just returned from a 7 day camping trip in the Canadian wilderness also. This is my favorite knife. The blade design is handy for a variety of jobs, enough tip for drilling, enough belly for skinning, and ergonomic for carving toward the handle. The steel doesn't have quite the edge retention of an ESEE but sharpens easier. A good trade-off for me. The knife is lightweight with a slim grip for easy carry, but not slim enough to be uncomfortable during extended use. I've abused this knife and it has taken it without issues. Only thing I had to do was put some extra stitches in the sheath opening to improve retention and tighten it up after it stretched from use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bushcraft knife that rivals customs! This knife does all Bushcrafting duties equally well. From batoning firewood, notching sticks for improvised traps to food prep and skinning. Finally a production knife that can "Get it Done ". A dangler sheath would be nice but one can be improvised with the sheath it comes with. Underpriced for what you get. Also made in the U.S.A. best of all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Checks all the boxes, adaptable. I have become a knife hoarder. I own at least one knife from many manufacturers, Kabar, Esee, Tops, Gerber, Ontario, Camillus, Schrade, Condor, and PKS to name a few. Each one fell short of at least one criteria I wanted for my ideal knife. Even the sheath is a factor. The Camillus Buscrafter checks all the squares for me and can easily be modified for others' needs. A four inch blade for international use, 1095 steel for all the reasons, near center point for carving, a long sweep belly for slicing and skinning, and hand placement near the edge gives maximum control protected by an effective hand guard. A thin blade coating does not interfere with the 90 degree spine for processing tinder, throwing sparks from a ferro. rod, and it has no thumb jimping! A 3/16" thick blade is much better than 1/4" for slicing while rigidity is significant over an 1/8" blade. The linen Micarta handles are well shaped, void of a bow drill divot, and can be removed and be replaced with custom scales. The leather sheath is deep and reaches well past half of the handle and is supported by a thick welt to protect the stitching. Edge retention exceeds most by easily surviving moderate baton abuse and still cutting a feather stick. I am 63 years old, I was a Boy Scout in the mid 60's, and as a 27 year military veteran, I am also a father of four boys who loved scouting and the outdoors. My first fixed blade knife was an Estwing leather handled knife that looks like the hatchet. My folks got it for me with S&H Green Stamps (for those who remember!) I now function fully with a Camillus Bushcrafter. The knife is unmolested; but I modified the sheath with wet molding and added a leather loop for a ferro. rod. I could have added any modification the market produces, most are easily done. Features are often impossible to remove by an average consumer. Choose a well thought out quality outdoor knife and add your own Kydex, G10, or even jimping with a file if that's your style. The Camillus Bushcrafter will not cut down a 2 foot oak tree, split it into shingles, or process it into a truck load of toothpicks. A Camillus Bushcrafter is the only tool you'll need to build a fire, erect a shelter, process food, or construct a splint or stretcher. Be informed, research the internet, and I hope to see you out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blade and handle utility I have had my knife for several years and found I was not using it because of the sheath. So, I altered the sheath to fit my use. Now I love the total package.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great knife The knife is sharp, good Nessmuk style, but the sheath is awful quality, really bad

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a true bushcraft blade! I only gave it 3 stars because of the fact that it does not have a true Scandinavian/scandi grind that makes it a true bushcraft blade. However, it does make for a good camp/hunting, but for bushcraft and survival, it does not have the grind needed to aid with ease of sharpening in the field the way a Scandi blade is meant to. Plus the price is way too high!
