Customer Reviews

Camillus Heater 4.5" Boot/Neck Knife is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handi Knife I've been wearing this knife for 2 weeks.Working in a warehouse it actually comes in handy. And of course it makes a great neck knife for self defense. It is a good quality knife ,made with good steel, the sheath works properly and the boot clip holds in place while drawing the knife. The only con I have for this product would be that the boot clip is not removable.Maybe I'll fix that problem with my dremel tool.Also if you have large hands you would find it difficult to hold.All in all its an awesome light weight self defense knife .And with a bottle opener too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Option for a Back-Up Knife! This knife is extremely versatile when it comes to a back-up knife. Personally, I mounted it in different places, including in my boot, my boot laces, the inside and out side of my waistband and belt, and with the included neck chain, with no issues. As a additional option, you could thread cordage through the holes in the sheath if you so choose for even more options. The Kydex sheath retains the knife in every angle securely and snugly, with no chance of it shaking loose. Furthermore, I have not observed any obvious signs of wear caused by the sheath. The blade has solid edge retention and over months of use has not needed any sharpening. It's a incredibly well made product and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received this Knife several weeks ago and found it very unique. I wore it around the neck and after having it there for a few minutes it was not a bother. I wore it for a week and a half and at times forgot it was there. I used it for cutting rope and making fire sticks for my scout troop and it worked wonderfully. I carried it in my boot for 3 days and decided I liked it around the neck better. All in all it is a very good tool for emergencies and self protection. It will not take the place of a full size knife but it is a good value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Capable Minimalist I was expecting this knife to serve as a simple neck knife then I thought, "What if I was stuck with only the knife hanging from my neck? Would this knife get me through?"I was really surprised by the capabilities of this little blade.The Camillus Heater performed well in a couple of survival type tasks. It carved a makeshift tent stake and made tinder feathers. This is punishing on bare hands but the Heater definately did the job.Next I moved to the kitchen. I had planned to make tuna salad for lunch so why not use the Heater. The blade was tough enough to punch through the top of the tuna can. Yes, I have a can opener but that is way too easy. After that punishment it was still sharp enough to dice an onion.As a bonus, I bet it would be perfect as a defensive tool and as an every day carry box opener.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Little Knife I've had this knife for a month or so and I like it a lot. It's my first neck knife but not my first Camillus. As I expected it lived up to the name. It's light and strong. Seems fairly sharp out of the box. I've used it mainly for every day tasks. Opening packages and such. It's easy to carry and you hardly notice you have it. Stays nice and out of the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great dimension Being a large man (6'5"-240lbs) I was surprised that it fit in my hand. I can carve small notches and cut cords with no chance of it slipping out of my hand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well thought out. I would have liked to have a double edge on this. At least a partial edge on the back side. It shouldn't be too hard to create another edge.

Is this a double edge knife? It seems like in the photos ... but i read some reviews saying otherwise

Asked by: pjaires
We do not ship this item with both edges sharpened, as some states have restrictions that do not allow double edged knives/daggers.
