If you’re going to be spending even a modest amount of time in the great outdoors, you should bring a fixed blade knife along with you. And it’s even more imperative that you have one if you’re going to be far from civilization, where there is the potential of getting yourself into a survival situation. But having a sturdy bushcraft-ready cutting tool doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style and good looks, as made apparent by Kizer’s Garza Sequoia fixed blade.
With a drop-point straight-edge blade built from sturdy and easy-to-sharpen 1095 steel, this knife is certainly ready for hard outdoor usage — which is made even truer by its corrosion-resistant black coating. And it pairs beautifully with its G10 handle in either black or OD green, making for a tool that’s as handsome as it is reliable and functional. Measuring up at a total of 8.03 inches and featuring a thermoplastic sheath, this $80 blade is definitely worth adding to any outdoor loadout.
