Food Prep Knife
The nCamp Food Prep Knife is a high-quality knife designed for those who want to take their outdoor experience to another level. It is designed for those who might venture into the backcountry, but also for everyday use; barbeque in the backyard or park, picnics and even daily use in the kitchen (at home or the cabin).
There are multiple versions and tiers of knives. Each has the same handle shape, which is designed for a comfortable secure grip that allows for a variety of gripping styles. It is scalloped at the balance point, allowing for a gradual transition between the handle and blade. Fasteners are flush-mounted, so there aren’t any annoying bumps and we minimized holes, which tend to collect crud. The top of the handle is closed, making it comfortable to hold and very rigid. The handle/blade relationship allows full use of the blade edge and enough clearance to keep your knuckles from banging into the cutting surface. The frame incorporates a liner-lock which makes the blade very secure when opened.
There are two blade styles: the Chef and the Santoku. Each version includes our signature cut-outs. The cutouts reduce material (and weight) at the widest part of the blade without impacting performance or comfort when applying pressure to the spine. They also provide a bit of an edge, allowing you to flick the blade open with your thumb. The Chef is a classic western utility knife. It is useful for all kinds of cutting and slicing.. The Santoku is based on a classic Japanese utility knife. The scalloped blade helps slices fall off after cutting and the broad surface is ideal for scooping up and moving ingredients.
Our Premium Knives have a light-colored beech wood handle which is durable and simple. These knives use 9Cr18Mov steel, which balances corrosion resistance, toughness and edge retention. Our Elite Knives have a dark-colored walnut handle which is both tough and beautiful. These knives have Damascus blades (wavy pattern made by layering 10Cr18Mov steel). These blades balance beauty, corrosion resistance and toughness, while maintaining a very sharp edge. Designed in the USA.
