Editor's Review (May 2010/Camping Knife Feature):
Everybody needs a machete when they go camping. Machete's are the ideal camping knife because they serve so many purposes. Machete's will cut through thick brush, chop thru branches and dead wood to use in your campfire and they're overall just great for chopping. We have the perfect camping machete - Ontario's model 8514 field machete is a little over 23 inches in length (18" is the machete blade) with a black D handle. The D Handle is perfect for camping tasks, because this machete is a bit hefty and long and the D handle gives more grip control. The 18" D Handle Machete is available with an orange D handle which give it more visibility (so you can spot it easily). The Ontario 18" Field Machete is a high quality machete for shockingly, under $20. This field machete doesn't come with a sheath, but you can pair it with Ontario BSH18 Machete Sheath.
