I mean, why not?

This Knife Is Basically a Machete, Is Probably Unnecessary, and I Couldn’t Care Less


You’d expect a man whose made hand weaponry for both Navy SEALs and for the set of “The Last of the Mohicans” to make extraordinary products, but Winkler Knives took its new Camp Knife to a completely different level of badass.

The knife, which acts as a sort of modernized machete, is cumbersome to say the least. And seeing as pricing begins at $625, it’s not exactly in impulse buy range. Do you need a nearly 10-inch, super durable, 80CrV2 black carbon steel knife on your next weekend camping trip? That’s for you to decide, but I sure want it — just, well, because. Its full length is almost 15 inches, and you can get it finished with a rubber, maple or micarta handle. The Winkler Knives Camp Knife is available now, ships in 4 to 10 weeks after ordering and comes with a Kydex sheath with a nylon belt strap attached.
