Handy camp and picnic knives
« on: September 16, 2018, 11:46:50 AM »
Saw these on the web and bought a set for my son.  He camps a lot and likes to cook.
They fit securely in the sheaths and the built in sharpener works okay on these knives.  We have one in the kitchen and it works pretty well for an inexpensive knife.

Joseph Joseph sells them https://www.josephjoseph.com/en-us/slicesharpen-knives

They are also on Ebay from time to time.

I might have to order a set for my wife.  She doesn't think twice of cutting on marble, ceramic plates, glass, etc.  I keep moving my Crashblade knives around (hiding) so she can't find them and destroy their edges.  I bought a set of cheap Chinese knives for her and they cut like spoons now.  Maybe I can get a shot of her mutilating a tomato with one.  LOL.

Thanks for the post.

I kinda like the scabbards. The knives look pretty slick resting in them.

We have them but maybe she would use one I built more than the store bought.  hmmm

I looked them up just now as I wasn't familiar with them.  They are very much like these Joseph Joseph knives and when they were available were a pretty good buy at $65.00 for the four
knife set.  (sale price off of the $149 list)
