Kershaw Camp 18 (1074) Camp Series Machete Product Review

Made from high-carbon, non-stainless steel, this powerful machete is designed to be long-lasting in any survival situation.

The black powder coat finish not only gives it a slick look, but also adds to the durability of the blade, which is essential if you are investing in this survival tool.

The full tang handle is conveniently wrapped in a rubber mold, which allows for a secure grip regardless of the conditions. It is also fitted with a handguard at the front and back to minimize slipping during rough use. You can also be assured that the sheath is highly protective, and it includes nylon straps for extra convenience.

Measuring at 18 inches, it is a long blade and is also quite thick in design as well. Despite this, it is relatively lightweight and easy to carry. Although the knife is specifically built for camping, it would be an excellent tool in a variety of survival situations.

If you are looking for the perfect blend of a lightweight blade that is easy to swing and can cut through the toughest terrain, the Kershaw Camp Machete is a great budget-friendly option. However, some customers have noted that its uses may be restricted to heavy-duty chopping, and that it is too big to be an excellent slicer for smaller branches.
