    OutDoor Camping Gear

    I have always been partial to the Fenix PD35... multiple battery options and very durable. Can drop, kick, or sky it and it will continue. Here's one writeup: https://bestsurvival.org/fenix-pd35-flashlight-review/

    No suggestions on knives. I tend to shy away from blades like you show. Too difficult to sharpen the teeth of a serrated blade...

    Thanks to the thoughtless, violent actions of dozens of scumbags, who have stabbed people to death with them, knife law in the UK has become ridiculously restrictive. The only knives we can legally carry must have a folding blade that is no longer than 3 inches, and it must not have a lock on it to keep the blade from folding accidentally, which actually increases the danger of the user getting cut with with their own knife!

    There's ways around the laws to get a safe knife IIRC. There's ones where there's a blunt curved part of the blade for holding, effectively part of the handle. It prevents folding and creates a legal knife that's safe to use. Something like that but I can't remember the brand / model or even the exact details of the construction that makes it safe.

    Try looking at Spydeco knives. They do very good legal knives in many countries. You need to know that UK laws are often closely matched in other European countries and indeed further afield. So to be sure you're not breaking laws on foreign trips you're best getting UK legal knives IMHO. You don't want to rely on fair use exemptions in a foreign country with possibly just phrasebook grasp of the local language.

    PS serrated knives are not easy to sharpen and IMHO are no better at cutting what you'd cut with a knife than normal knife grinds. If your need a sawing action take a folding saw. Bahco are decent but there's many available of equivalent or better quality.

    What do you think of this knife https://swordsswords.com/knives/wild...ing-knife.html, i think it is easier to to maintain and to use as well, but it wont fold.

    Just now seeing this... to be honest mate, I prefer a solid locking folder. I have a few and just find that they get carried (and therefore used) more. If you do prefer a fixed blade for walking, personally, I would go with a Morakniv. You can find them for 10-12 pounds, and they are a true working knife... the one you mentioned looks a tad gimmicky and perhaps a hollow handle.
