We selected a few folders and fixed-blade knives that will make any outdoor slicing, carving, or chopping task this summer easier and more enjoyable.

BEST FOR: Keeping On You At All Times 

Legendary war correspondent Robert Young Pelton brings his breadth of adventuring experience to all DPx Gear products, and his Urban HEST/F folder may be one of the finest, full-featured folders around. Created by Southern Grind in Georgia, it’s packed with lots of thoughtful details like a ¼ hex driver in the frame, tungsten-carbide glass breaker on the butt, thumb grip that doubles as wire stripper, and bottle opener/pot lifter on the back of the spine. The titanium frame holds a high-quality S35V stainless steel blade and options for scales go from the standard G-10 all the way up to carbon fiber or hammered copper.
