About the Magazine
The March/April 2023 issue of Knives Illustrated features a special section focusing on knives for the camp kitchen. In this section, you’ll find articles on knives you wouldn’t ordinarily think of for food prep at home, including the Emerson Folding Steak Knife and the three Camp Plus folding knives from the Ontario Knife Company. The section will also include articles from bushcraft expert Reuben Bolieu on the PB&J Knives Cleaver and tips on how to craft basic cooking rigs using the resources you find in the woods. In other features, regular contributor Jim Cobb reviews the RMJ Tactical Sparrow and Smith & Sons Comanche fixed blades. Do you need something even more heavy duty? Editor Steve Barlow puts a couple of Hults Bruk hatchets to the test. In Part 1 of our two-part feature on knife defense, martial arts expert Patrick Vuong provides his suggestions on defense against a knife-wielding attacker when you are unarmed. This issue will feature a review of the DEMO folder collaboration between RYP Design and William Harsey that pays tribute to CIA legend Billy Waugh. Take a look at the best of knife artistry in our review of the book, “Of Knives and Men.” Because our readers carry more than just knives on a daily basis, this issue debuts a new regular column, An Eye on EDC, to showcase the latest in everyday carry gear.
