Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
I have owned many knives. This knife IMHO is one of the best knives I have ever owned. For a production knife, the blade was the sharpest I have ever received. I've owned over 100 knives, sold most or gave many away. The quality is as good as some of the knives I've paid 3-4 times as much. Knife fits great in the sheath, and the sheath is high quality. This will be my main knife, no need to look anymore. Very happy-I can't believe the price.

Solid Buschcraft knife.USA MADE...
One of the Best buschcraft knives out there.Good steel.Good Balance.Micarta scales.Good quality leather sheath.I prefer Scandinavian style knives overall,due to their practical usages.I like the fact that there are no gimmicky add on's,or something that just doesnt work.I guess i like the simplicity of scandi knives.And as far as production knives go,this Camillus rivals ANY Scandi made production knife there is.I personally like it the most,due to the thickness,and the full tang,and upswept blade design.And of course US Made.Get one.You will like it.

Perfect Piece Of Steel!
This is a kind of knife for EVERYTHING, I think. Of course - it's rather unsuitable for fine cutting of onion, but skinning is good, carving the meat very good, preparing splinters for any kind of fire is excellent....The right knife for the right survivors! 1095 steel is very good - durable sharpness, but also easy to maintenace. 2 - 3 moves on sharpening steel... and the edge is like a razor again. The leather sheath is perfect, no reservation about it. Buy this piece - you'll be satisfied!

Sharp and stout
Perfect lil bush knife. Handle is a bit blocky tho. Blade is shaving sharp and the geometry of it is perfect for camp tasks

Nice knife
This is a well balanced, sturdy knife with a comfortable handle. I have small hands and wanted a knife with certain specifications. It had to be full tang, high carbon steel with a 90 degree spine for throwing sparks and a shorter blade. I'm using this knife for heavier bushcrafting tasks and needed one small enough to handle and yet sturdy enough to take a beating. This knife fits the bill. I do have a couple complaints, though. First off, only the forward half of the blade had any sharpness to it. The rest was very dull. Also, I know many people like the leather sheath, but I don't. It's one more thing to care for and maintain and can disintegrate quickly in wet or humid environments. I would prefer something synthetic. Lastly, the literature it came with said not to store it in the sheath. I'm assuming that is because it is carbon and can rust. If I keep it in my BOB when not in use, it would be nice to store it in the sheath. Would oiling it and storing it in the sheath work?

I'm Mostly Pleased
I just got to try out my Bushcrafter last weekend. It was nice to carry on belt, even when sitting in my truck. Wonderful sheath - functionally and aesthetically. It's a nice thing to not have to mess with retainer straps. Handle was very comfortable. BUT why not go ahead and put a nice edge on it at the factory? It is harder to sharpen than any 1095 blade that I have seen, probably due partly to its curviness. I have acquired several Scandinavian knifes lately , and those folks know how to send knives out SHARP. I will keep at it, but shouldn't have to for $120.

Nice, but Needs work
I’ve used it for about a year now for camping. Preping wood for my wood burning stove, mostly. Its a nice knife, but i did some “fixes” that was necessary. First the angle of the bevel was too steep. So i had to grind a narrower, true scandi bevel on it. That took some time to do on the wet stone... but well worth it. Second, i smoothed out the edges on the handle. That was easy to do with a file. Now it feels great in the hand. The sheath is great, i think. Its gotten wet before, but no issues yet. I like the way it covers all the way to the handle, as a proper bushcrafting knives should do. The blade is high carbon, so you do need to keep it dry with some oil. But if you do forget, you can clean it up easily with the milky stuff thats on the whet stone, when you sharpen. Great knife... but with some work.
