Kershaw Camp Machete Review

The Kershaw Camp 10 knife model 1077 is a full tang knife/machete hybrid that has a 10 inch Kukri style blade. The blade material is carbon steel, and the overall length of the knife is 16 inches. To be more specific, the type of carbon steel the Camp 10 is made of is very hard like the kind of carbon steel that chisels are made of. We tested this knife at a camp ground and it performed nicely, as detailed in the video below. What you will really like about the Kershaw Camp 10 Machete is making kindling and chopping brush. The knife is so strong that if you get it stuck in the wood, simply pry it out. It can withstand a lot of force, and you do not need to worry so much about bending it. Another cool feature of the Kershaw knife is that it comes with a low profile

Good quality, not without flaws, but overall an incredible value.

I’ve had my Camp 10 (C10) for a couple of weeks now, was able to take it camping over the Memorial Day weekend, and put it to some real testing. I used it for cutting pine boughs and processing them into poles (de-limbing and smoothing) for shelter building, rough hewing and shaping of larger sticks for making smaller tools like batons for splitting firewood, and carving a hearth board for making a friction fire. Despite a few issues, it provides incredible versatility and utility, at a great price.

Man….this is a winner!

I don’t really have a use for this in my normal day life but keep it with my bug out bag. I had a cheap, wal mart machete that was basically worthless. This is a huge upgrade and is extremely sharp and adept at doing it’s job. I imagine this would get heavy quickly (I got the 18” model) if you were trying to continuously clear a path or large area, but it definitely does what its intended to do very well.

Best Machete for the $$$ out there!

This Machete is a beast that is a big chunk of steel for the spine and a very comfortable handle. I’ve used it for chopping up some limbs for a fire pit and the handle absorbs all the force so your hands aren’t aching afterwords. It is kind of expensive compared to a cheep-o but it is so much sharper and stronger it is totally worth it. The sheath that it comes with is solid and has a lot of mounting options for everything from a ATV to your leg.

Strong Sturdy Chopper.

Good strong chopper with many other uses. I received this item quickly and in shaving shape. I was very excited when I found this thing, and even more excited when I got it. I have only used it a few times, but those times showed me what it could do.

Of the variety of large knives, machetes and so forth, this is by far one of the best knife & sheath combinations. The price makes it an even better deal. It doesn’t really matter to me whether it is a true Kukri a Bolo or something else. What matters is that it works. There are several larger knives I have been looking at but now question whether I would use them enough to make the purchase.

Amazing Machete!

This machete is great! I bought it specifically for blackberry bushes, but now I’ve used it to cut down small trees and even cut a 20″ thick tree in half (fell during a wind storm and my chainsaw stopped working, even BROKE my axe on the tree…). The blade is amazingly strong and is still sharp after many uses. Anyone that broke this blade did so with improper use (ie, don’t twist going in or pulling out). Owned for about a year and I would highly recommend it.

Best machete can’t go wrong

My brother in law bought this machete and showed it to me. I fell in love as soon as i picked it up and held it. Nice weight very good grip no slip handle nice sharp blade. I ordered one from Amazon soon as i got home. When i got it i was in love and still love it. I took my two grandsons to the woods to help build a small hut just because of my young memories from a child. Very impressed that this machete chopped up to 5″ diameter with ease, probably even thicker wood. I’ve chopped and chopped and chopped with this machete and i swear for me it’s the best machete i’ve ever used. Nice thick blade not flexible like some machete’s and even trimmed the bark off using the base of the blade where it curves in. This machete is better than a hatchet. You can’t go wrong with this one! Will buy again and again just to have more and would give as a gift for friend’s or love ones.

Exceptional Tool

 on October 26, 2015

I just ordered my second one. My original order was over a year ago, and I have been very well pleased with this exceptional tool. I have used it a lot, clearing brush and trail blazing into south MS woods to install new tree stands and clear the edges of overgrowth on our food plots. I have taken down 3″-4″ scrub trees, hacked briar roots in sandy soil, and even used it as a scythe to clear tall grass. The edge maintains its sharpness and requires only an occasional sharpening. I have had no chipping or bent metal anywhere on the blade. The spine is thick, but still somewhat flexible and retains its shape well. The best feature though is the tool’s balance and grip. The balance is weight-forward, which helps deliver superior penetration of the blade, without requiring a lot of exertion and the handle is shaped ergonomically to reduce hand fatigue. I have used this machete/knife for four hours at a time in 85 degree heat and high humidity, with sweat running down my arms and dripping off my fingers, and the grip remained firm and my right hand uncramped. I do clean and resharpen and lightly oil the blade after heavy use, although the resharpening is probably unnecessary unless hacking into soil to get at stubborn briar roots. The original now resides in the front storage area of my Polaris Sportsman 570. This new one is going in the storage compartment of my F-350, both always at the ready.
