Surprising Benefits of Choosing a Fixed Blade Hunting Knife 

Published

on

So, you’re a professional hunter, looking to enhance your hunting experience, right?

Well, that’s the reason, you’ve probably landed right here, looking to know the benefits of choosing a fixed-blade tool!

Unlike foldable knives, these tools are stronger and offer a superior grip that offers you a seamless cutting and chopping experience.

Whether you want to skin down an animal or peel fruit in the middle of the woods, considering a fixed-blade option will serve the purpose. Also, these knives are often termed “serious knives” that deliver the perfect swing to cut down anything that comes in their path.

Though foldable knives are relatively common among hunters, choosing a fixed-blade tool can offer more than you’ve wondered. 

If you’re still not convinced, listed below are some of the strong reasons to choose fixed-blade hunting knives for your trip.

  1. Extended Durability 

If you want to buy high-quality and durable knives in the wild, then considering a fixed blade will never disappoint you. Unlike regular folding knives, these tools are considerably stronger as they don’t have any moving parts. The steel or the blade of the tool is attached to the handle, making it stronger than other tools. Since the construction is sturdy, it is an ideal choice for cutting and skinning animals. Even if you want to have some fruits in your kitchen, you can easily use a knife to cut them. Remember that you should use it wisely as it has strong steel blades. It is wise to use it for your camping or any adventure activities, especially in the woods. 

  1. Easy to Clean 

One of the biggest reasons to consider a fixed-blade knife is that it is easier to clean and requires less maintenance. When it comes to folding knives, you may need to put in some serious effort and time to complete the cleaning process. But the scenario is somewhat different with fixed blade tools. Unlike folding knives, you don’t even have to worry about their hinges. All you need is a dry cloth and oiling afterward to retain its shine and durability. If you want to extend its lifespan, you can buy a leather sheath to protect it from rust and dirt elements. 

Tip: Proper washing and drying off the knife is enough to maintain its quality and durability. 

  1. Extended Blade Length 

Because fixed-blade knives are specifically designed for hunting and skinning purposes, they usually come with an extended blade length. Unlike folding knives where the blade length is shorter, these knives have a longer blade length, i.e, 12-inch, making them an ideal hunting choice. Furthermore, you don’t need a specific bottle opener in the jungle. Simply use this knife to easily open canned bottles. Due to its strong blade material, it can effortlessly penetrate deep into cans and bottles. From hunting animals to opening bottles and cans, having a fixed-blade hunting knife is a must-have tool that every hunter should have. 

  1. Safer to Use

Another major reason to consider a fixed-blade knife is that it is safe to use without fear of getting cuts. This knife doesn’t have any risk of the blade accidentally touching your fingers and making you bleed while using it. Even if you’re an amateur, you can still use the knife without getting hurt. Due to its safety aspect, it’s widely gaining traction among hunters and even beginners. Whether you’re a professional or a newbie, considering this fixed knife may seem an ideal choice. 

So, the next time you’re considering buying a new knife for outdoor activities, a fixed-blade hunting tool is worth your money. Keep these benefits in mind and enjoy a memorable hunting experience.

The Perfect Travel and Summer Sandal

Published

on

Ipanema sandals are based in Brazil, and the sandal is named after one of the most famous beaches worldwide. Ipanema sandals are made with a durable Flexpand 100% recyclable plastic and use at least 30% recycled materials, while 99% of all factory waste is recycled or reused.

I Turkey this summer. Last year I really needed a sandal that looked great but handled well in water. Have you ever notice that a lot of summer shoes slip and slide when it rains? Also the beaches of the Mediterian  They take up no room in suitcase or a purse, are incredibly light being that they are all made of rubber. It feels like you are wearing nothing at all, yet are sturdy. These are perfect and you will not need another pair of sandals for anything.

I got the Ipanema Women’s Class Edge Glow Sandals ($32). The Ipanema Shimmer sandals are so soft, and feel great. They are silent when you walk in them, with no noise on the ground and no noise of anything hitting your foot. They also have a section on top that connects to the band around your ankle; this is the shimmer part. The strap is adjustable and o nce adjusted you do not need to undo it each time, making them very easy to slip on since the material is so stretchy.

I will definitely be ordering more.
