This Sale Is Your Best Chance to Get an Awesome Knife for Less

Included in Backcountry’s Semi Annual sale is a collection of awesome knives.


There’s a knife for every use. They’re tools after all, and while some are made to be generally good at many tasks, others are created to excel at one specific thing. Those general builds tend to cater well toward the everyday carry crowd, but outdoorsmen and campers might need something more definite. Survivalists might want a knife that can light a fire; car campers can afford a bigger blade dedicated to cooking.

Any knife can be practical in the outdoors, but many makers build blades specifically for the purpose. They’re lightweight, sturdy and resistant to the elements. Right now, many of these blades are on sale at Backcountry’s Semi-Annual event. The selection isn’t expansive, but it provides enough variety that there’s a good chance that the blade that’s most convenient to your preferred style of adventuring is available at a hearty discount. Below, you’ll find five of our favorites.
