This lightweight, durable MSR kitchen knife comes sharp and stays sharp.
You can also sharpen it quite easily.
I used to buy camping kitchen knives at the dollar store. I'd use them for a season, or part of a season, and then throw them away. They were cheap but unfortunately also disposable. Years ago this MSR Alpine Kitchen Knife came with a set of cooking kit. I have not needed a new knife since.
Good for chopping, paring, slicing and spreading -- this knife will do it all if I'm camping alone and not feeling like taking out silverware. Sure, I'll eat with the kitchen knife.
I have gotten a lot of use out of this blade and only had to sharpen it once. It holds an edge very well.
The Alpine Kitchen Knife is lightweight and has a bit of flex, but is a pleasure to work with. The knife comes with a lightweight plastic sheath for the storaging, as well.

According to KSBW, “Whitson said he had rope to rappel down, but the river was running too swift and deep due to spring runoff. Backtracking was also […]

Quality knives matter — and in more ways than you might expect. At the most basic level, having a functioning set of proper kitchen knives means you can actually get in a kitchen, start putting together a meal and have the right tools to handle all tasks. From the blunt force of the clever to […]
You kill it at the gym all week, your nutrition is dialed in, and you’re drinking so much water that your spare time is spent walking back and forth to the bathroom (way to get those steps in!)—so how do you take things to the next level? By focusing on recovery. A proper post-workout routine, […]
