Customer Reviews

Camillus S.K. 7.75" Desert Folding Knife is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from great feel to the grip Just got this knife today its a little awkward to open, but looks and feels great. My only real complaint is that out of the box the firestarter doesn't work because the nonstick coating covers the striking notch . Will have to take a round file like a chainsaw file and remove the coating from the notch if i want to use the firestarter. But will that then cause the rest of the coating to flake off? Dunno.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from camillus desert survival knife got this knife about a week ago and it has held up great the grip is worn down a little but otherwise it is a great knife. I would recommend sharpening it when you get it because the factory edge is a little bit dull. I don't know if it was just mine or if they are all like that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not bad knife this is a very good knife if your going to play nice with it but once you start to use it for awhile the blade will loosen and nom madder how many times you tighten it back up it will always loosen up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knife of I paused the tv to see the guy from survivorman using this exact knife in episode "Mexican Desert Island pt. 1" so it must be a decent product if its his survival knife of choice. Pretty cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice blade This knife has a nice sharp blade. It's lightweight but balanced and great for projects in the yard. I got it as a gift and would definitely buy from Camillus in the future.

Ask a question

Got a Les Stroud San Bushmen for Christmas. Can't make the fire starter work. Does one run the length of the fire starter rod past the rounded notch? Someone says to remove anti-stick coating from the notch. Please advise.

Asked by: Doug
The Fire-starter rod comes with some protective paint. This will need to be removed in order to create sparks. You should not have to remove any of the non-stick coating to create sparks. I would recommend placing the rod in the not and then rotating it 45 degrees so that you are drawing the rod across the edge of the back of the knife.

I have a S.K. DESERT and would like to know how to use the fire starter?

Asked by: GSinMN
As stated by Customer service:To use the Firestarter you need to scrape it against a piece of steel. Typically you will use the back of a knife. The goal is to direct the sparks towards the DRY tinder that you are using to light your fire. I WILL ADD: YOU WILL NEED BARE METAL ON BOTH PIECES (ROD & KNIFE) NO COATINGS! It is best to prepare for this ahead of time before going out on adventures. It will save you time and frustration. I personally recommend using Red or Green Locktite on the screws to prevent loosening. Do the research on Locktite products and decide for yourself which will suit you better. Used properly it is a great knife.
