Cooking while on the road is already hard enough. Give me a dull knife and it just might drive me crazy.
Years ago I spent far too much on a fancy travel knife, the Ryback Folding Kitchen knife made by Kevin Wilkins. It was great but heavy. A few years after I bought it the knifemaker stopped production and the price skyrocketed so I sold it on ebay for a tidy profit.
Then I found this Boker Magnum folding chef knife for $20 on Amazon. The weight is better for backpacking. The knife keeps an edge well and I don’t sweat much when I hand it over to the afilador de cuchillo.
