If you’re not worrying about space, yet investment cost is an issue, then a fine company to lookup is Hultafors. They are a Swedish owned company who produces a solid range of small knives with an affordable price tag. Recently, I tested the Expedition knife, the Fine Detail blade, and their Serrated Outdoor knife, as well as their steel fire starter, which creates a spark when struck with their Expedition model.
The Fine Detail knife is fitted with a durable friction grip, providing the user with the capability of precision work. The bade is tiny at only 3.07” which allows for up close and personal detail work, which is perfect for hunters and survivalists who need to fashion something to sustain themselves in the wild.
The Serrated Outdoor knife is a tough little blade, made of stainless steel, that can handle hard and tough surfaces, as well as rope and strapping bands where tension is at play. The Serrated Outdoor knife is perfect for survivalists and hunters alike, and is capable of gnawing away at just about anything in the wild.
Overall, I came away impressed with Hultafors range of outdoor knives, especially for the price. Though most Swedish brands, similar to Hultafors, boast superior craftsmanship, Hultafors’ knives are mass produced in Taiwan, which is surely why their price tag is so affordable. Because if you were going to purchase a high end brand, known for a hundred years of quality handmade craftsmanship, then you would spend anywhere from 3X to 10X times the amount. These knives may not last through a decade of use, but they may certainly save your lives.
