I am absolutely no knife freak. There are people who can spend hours or even days talking about knives. Yes, there are even whole trade fairs on knives. But for me, a knife must primarily fulfill its purpose.
Which Knife Do I Need?
This question is not at all easy and finally everyone has to answer. But I would like to point out in this blog simply times to really ask the question, what you do with the knife, when you are out on the road. I myself have asked myself this question and actually only the following answers found:
Scale or bark.
Cut or clean the foot and toe nails.
The last point may sound a bit disgusting, but of course I clean the knife after that. On a one-week tour, however, this is unfortunately indispensable. In rare cases I have to use the knife also times a unhappily open bag of finished food. But, on the whole, it is precisely these activities. And you have to admit that a knife for these applications does not need any special features.
The Swiss Pocket Knife
The essence of the outdoor knife is probably the Swiss pocket knife. But most versions of these little all-rounders are simply oversized for the normal hiker. The only item that I really take with me is the small tweezers from my Swiss pocket knife, which is very suitable for removing splinters and ticks. The other functions are really only necessary in everyday life: bottle opener, can opener, corkscrew.
My knife consists only of a sufficient blade, must be collapsible, so that I need not carry a useless vagina with me and should also have a sufficient sharpness. Currently I use the Baladéo 15g. I do not need more.
