Cooking outdoors requires serious tools. We built our Overland Chef 8" Chef's Knife to be rugged and versatile. The ultra-tough canvas Micarta handle has a contoured pommel and machined lanyard eyelet for a sure, comfortable grip with any sized task around the campsite. Our 60/40 blade grind moves additional weight over the cutting edged the ballistic clip point adds strength to the tip. Despite the extra heft, the Overland Chef 8" Chef's Knife is surprisingly responsive and lively when used on a cutting board. Staying sharp is key, so we used Nitro-B steel which will hold a terrific edge that is easy to restore.
Going Overland requires the best gear that could be found. Usually, a ragtag arsenal of knives in a camp kit which included at least one everyday carry, an old Russian survival tool for clearing brush and fist full of kitchen knives that were expendable at the cost of abuse were what peopled needed. Crazy right? Messermeister dug deep into the world of bushcraft to put their spin on a pair of knives that are up to the challenge of performing the everyday chores encountered when going off the grid.
