Victorinox Swiss Army Adventurer Camo Knife
awesome pocket knife!!
I got this knife for my birthday a year ago and it's an AWESOME knife. My grandparents got mine engraved with a little piece of metal on the side for the writing, it just has my name but it's a cool addition. This thing has a nice blade and i can believe it's surgical steel, this thing has the same level of sharpness as when I got it save for a microscopic nick in the blade I made while whittling a sick sign that says "canoe trip 2012" this knife has been in my pocket for 2 straight weeks and has probably been used 14 times in 2 weeks for anything from opening cans to fiddling with my air rifle's trigger to skinning squirrels since my fixed blade knife broke. overall and awesome knife

I bought this knife about a year ago and I was skeptical as to how well it would perform against other Swiss Army knives and even fixed blade knives!
I've gone camping a couple of times and although this knife might not have the "saw" feature or the "file" feature, it does the job perfectly.
The simplicity of it is great, a real survival knife, not too much, not too little and the blade is the perfect size for fishing and cutting rope and whatever else you need!

Great knife for camping
This knife is little large to conveniently carry in your pocket and doesn't have as many features as some Swiss Army knives, but it's an excellent camp knife. The main blade locks and is large enough and strong enough to replace a hunting knife. It takes a lot of work to put a good edge on the main blade because it is surgical steel, not the kind of metal used in your carving knife. once sharp, it will hold an edge with a little routing honing on a stone.
The rest of the features will quickly find use on the camp ground. Bottle openers and can openers will be used everyday. Screwdrivers may not seem as useful when camping, but they can help tighten a loose part on the camp stove. Need a to make a hole in some wood. The reamer comes with a sewing eye, but any stitch you make will be very crude.
The only useful addition would be scissors and a saw, but there is only so many features you can ask for at this price!
