5 of 5 Love it so much I bought a second one! January 17, 2023
Reviewer: Cole Baldwin from Seattle, WA United States  
Great edge, nicely balanced, and light weight. I bought one as a gift and struggled to let it go so I decided to get on for myself. I plan to get many years of use in camping and backpacking with this knife. I also love that they are crafted with care locally in the PNW.

5 of 5 Basecamp Knife January 1, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oak Ridge , TN United States  
The perfect sized EDC knife, it is well-made and light weight. I have a "few" knives to choose from and this has quickly become my favorite to   carry either on the belt with the included belt loops or pocket carry with a Ulti Clip.

5 of 5 The Do Everything Knife! November 19, 2021
Reviewer: Travis from Woodinville, WA United States  
I bought this knife to keep in my sprinter van. It is the ultimate do everything knife, whether I toss it in my backpack or belt loop for a hike or need to slice up food for dinner. It’s amazing how versatile and lightweight it is for its size. It’s the only knife I need in the van and can use in every situation. Highly recommend it!

5 of 5 Mighty Fine Knife October 29, 2021
Reviewer: Jared from Temecula, CA  
I’m very impressed with the basecamp. I was looking for a small fixed blade knife that I could easily throw in my gym shorts to work around the house, or strap onto my belt/backpack for a hike and the basecamp hits the mark. It’s incredibly light and there is so much blade length for its small size. It’s nimble, but capable. It fits so well in hand, and I always know here the edge is when using it. Jimping is perfect. Micarta is crafted beautifully, with function in mind. I really can’t say enough about this knife. If you’re on the fence about the basecamp, then  do yourself a favor and take the plunge - you won’t regret it!

5 of 5 Truly flawless EDC fixed blade October 25, 2021
Reviewer: John Michael from Steamboat Springs, CO  
Really impressed by this blade, I’ve carried my fastpak for several years, I work as an outdoor guide in a variety of fields and a small handy razor sharp blade has innumerable uses in what I do. The basecamp is lovely to use, the extra blade length and handle lend itself to more powerful cuts and taking on bigger projects, though it still manages to disappear on my belt, so light and compact that I never notice it until I need it. Customer service was also outstanding, I emailed with a question and got a prompt and kind response back immediately. Rainier is swiftly becoming my favorite knife maker. Many thanks!
