Best Pocket Knife

Which pocket knife should you carry?  The best pocket knife for you is somewhat a personal decision.  Some individuals prefer a multi-tool while others only need or want a single blade.  We’ve covered the best pocket knives on the market for all types of users below.  Take a look and we’re sure you will find a knife that fits your needs.

Kershaw 1660ST Ken Onion Leek Serrated Folding Knife with SpeedSafe

Kershaw Knife

This one is awesome in every way. It has the speed assist which is a great option but in addition to the traditional thumb stud it has a spot on the back of the blade which allows you to use your index finger to deploy the blade. The steel keeps an edge very well but is not impossible to sharpen. The size of the knife is also perfect for pocket use. Overall, this is truly a great knife. Don’t hesitate on this one. One last thought. It is also made in the USA which means quality.

Benchmade 585 Mini Barrage

Benchmade Knife

If you’re looking for a GREAT knife that is easy to carry, clips into your pocket, 2 1/4 inch blade that is VERY sharp right out of the box and holds a great edge under heavy use this is the one. This is my second – lost the first in the woods – and I will keep buying this knife for as long as they make it. Love everything about it!

Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD Pocket Knife

Swiss Army Knife

For versatility and simplicity it’s hard to beat this item. Sure there are SAKs with more blades and tools, but the simple knife/screwdriver/scissors combination is going to meet the vast majority of your needs (ok, it doesn’t have a bottle opener: use a door strike plate, MacGyver). The toothpick is so-so, but I can’t count the number of times I’ve needed to tweeze something and used the SAK tweezers when I couldn’t find the bathroom set. The key fob, while not the most exciting of features, does provide a convenient way to carry the SAK around with you. This item is sure to please. I love mine. You’ll love yours. Buy one for someone else – they’ll love theirs.

Benchmade Knife 551 Griptilian Pardue Plain Edge Satin Blade Black Handle Folding Knife

Griptillian

This is a perfect example of a perfectly balanced knife. I own a lot of benchmade knives and this one is the best for your buck. 154cm steel allows you to give this knife a hard beating between sharpening, I actually have not had to sharpen mine and i have owned it for a little more than a year with regular use. Personally, I wish that this knife had a rubber grip on the sides of some sort, because it is not as grippy as I would like, but its good enough. Incredibly sharp, opening and closing this knife can be done with the greatest of ease using one hand with practice.

Columbia River Knife And Tool’s Mt. Shasta 6611N Serrated Edge Knife

CRKT

CRKT has achieved perfection in this knife design. If feels really good in your hand, run over it with a truck, skin a bear, and it still works like new. One of the nice things about this design is that you can get it in two sizes and two blade types. You can decide which fits your needs the best. Also, I have an older one that I have been carrying for ten years. They have not changed much in that time. It is my favorite knife and I imagine it will continue to be the best knife that I own.

Best GPS for Hunting

Here at Hunter Fields we’ve been spending a large amount of time this summer hiking and scouting for the upcoming deer bow hunting season and while doing so have been able to check out quite a few handheld GPS units.  So what is the best GPS for hunting needs?  Well, while there wasn’t a clear run away winner this year we do have our favorites.  While a couple of the guys really leaned towards the Bushnell Back Track the overall consensus winner was the Garmin GPSMAP 64st. Read on for our full review and we’re sure you’ll agree that Garmin is still the way to go.

Garmin Gps 64

Preloaded with TOPO U.S. 100K mapping, the Garmin 64st boasts wireless connectivity and a high-sensitivity receiver that works with Russian GLONASS and U.S. GPS for superior reception and navigation.  Even under a heavy canopy or extreme cloud cover the reception was always great.  We normally acquired a satellite fix in 15-30 seconds.   The unit also comes preloaded with 1:100K Topographic maps for the entire United States and Puerto Rico.  One of the biggest selling points (at least for my wife) was the LiveTrack function which allows friends and family to view your activities in real time on the Garmin Connect website.   The Garmin 64st  allows storage of up to 5,000 waypoints and up to 200 routes meaning  your favorite trips old and new can be stored on your GPSMAP 64 st. Recall them at a later date to share with other people on your home PC with the Garmin Connect online community to see where you’re adventures have taken you, and you can also view other people’s travels. Use of the unit-to-unit transfer will allow you to share your routes or waypoints wirelessly with similar units like your 64st.  As my partner Steve stated –

After all of these years, nobody has been able to make a better handheld GPS unit that his one from Garmin. This is the latest update in the 60 series of the Garmin GPS units. I’ve tried the Colorado and the Montana and this one still works the best and is the easiest to use with the best screen for daytime as well as nighttime.
