If you’re interested in outdoor survival, there are a few tools you should have in your repertoire alongside a wealth of knowledge (which you can acquire at a survival school). But the most important tool is undoubtedly a fixed blade knife. And who better to design the perfect one for bushcraft than a wilderness survival expert like Tom Zoomer? Well, that’s exactly what happened with the Spyderco Zoomer knife.
For those not in the know, Tom Zoomer is a wilderness enthusiast and survival skills instructor who hails from the Netherlands, so it’s fair to say he knows a thing or two about bushcraft. His expertise is reflected in the design of the Zoomer, with its straightforward, no-nonsense silhouette and remarkably high-end materials — like a 5.2″ drop point plain edge blade crafted from CPM 20CV steel and a lightweight G-10 handle that’s super durable and retains plenty of grip even in inclement weather. The 10″ knife also comes with a handsome premium leather sheath (with a small snap button pocket) for easy carry whether you’re camping, backpacking, or just enjoying the outdoors. The Zoomer is priced at $600.
