    What about the Victorinox Solo? same size/shape as the one I use only with just a single blade. The Opinel is a good value knife but for camping use when one knife may be used for a variety of tasks I prefera stainless blade.

    Victorinox Solo

    For something with a little more class what about one of these?

    Why a knife at all - I never take one unless I am backpacking somewhere I am likely to actually need it to....ummmmm....?

    Nah. You don't need one.

    'Tis very true. I only have them because my MLC dictates that I hunt things and as a consequence chop their heads off

    How do you know Kate isn't going somewhere she's likely to need one?

    She might however feel that whether or not she needs one is a decision she can make for herself.

    What do you want it for?

    If weight is an issue, the Derma-Safe has a 5cm blade, orange handle and weighs 8g: http://www.survivaldepot.co.uk/produ...3_1694823.aspx

    For climbing I'd imagine in my ignorance that you want something you can open one-handed, perhaps a Spyderco Grasshopper: http://www.heinnie.com/product.asp?P_ID=5279

    I like a PC-uncorrect fire when i'm camping. Sometimes a knife is useful for getting down to some dry wood.

    I'd just like to point out that this law is gendered, there's nothing to prevent her from carrying a knife

    Thanks for the suggestions and entertainment, guys!

    Uncorrect (its not a word BTW); you mean misscorrect

    Very non-PC next to all that burnt off heather and clear felling...

    Opinel handles being wooden, swell when wet and make them unopenable till dry (can take hours. Most are carbon steel and therefore rust unless cared for.

    Sharpen up extremely well.

    A serviceable £5- £10 knife is easily found in farm shops/hardware stores.

    R Macs choices best for the OP IMO.

    A chunkier blade useful if firewood paring needed.

    I don't approve of ladies using knives. Not outside of the domestic environment, at any rate.

    How about a nice pair of nailclippers instead, Katie me love?

    Oh heck -domestic environment and me love -there is patronising for you.

    Fan of real Ray Mears but have you seen the price of his knives bit smart to say that 'I couldn't find the right knife so I made my own .The Finns,Swedes and others make super knives.

    Ray has done a lot to promote the outdoors but just wish he could leave the Bergen behind, the axe ,big pans and the pony to carry it all.

    Just as an aside have you noticed you never see Ray Mears and Clare Balding in the same room.

    That's cos Clare Balding would deck Ray Mears for his sexist comments! Nailclippers indeed. You wanna know how much damage nailclippers could do to your bits, Ray?!

    My knife needs a hanging / attachment point, btw

    I do have a rather fetching lock blade knife I got in Amsterdam, shaped as a kriss. Pretty mean looking and nearly got me arrested in Paris when I moved to England...

    Kate,

    Get yourself down to Heinnie Haynes (www.heinnie.com), they are based in Barry and sell every knife in the world or so it seems.

    I used to collect knifes and would recommend anything by Boker (favs are the Trance and Subcom models), CRKT (favs Hammond and M16) and Mora.

    Stay away from most of the shite you get in outdoor shops tho.

    Oh, and on the website they have a CRKT Hammond Cruiser for £23.....fuggin awesome knife!
