The Perfect Knife for the Outdoorsman

If you’re an outdoors person who likes to be prepared for anything, Elk Ridge knives are the perfect tools for you. These knives were designed with practicality, design and ease of use in mind, so you can always count on them when you need them most. With Elk Ridge folding knives by your side, you’ll be able to handle any situation that comes your way.

If you’re a hunter or just an outdoor living enthusiast, there are certain things that you’ll want to find in a knife so that you know it’ll fit your needs. One of the first is going to be a solid blade with a strong ability to hold its edge. Elk Ridge knives are primarily made of stainless steel components and as a result, they have a tendency to keep their sharpness for an extended period of time. Stainless steel may not be quite as hard as a carbon blade, but in the context of wilderness applications, the ability that stainless steel has to absorb impacts without chipping or breaking makes it an ideal material.

Another crucial feature for outdoor usage is the stability of the knife. The tactical knives from Elk Ridge are constructed using a full tang, making them more balanced and more capable when it comes to cutting through dense materials.

The Elk Ridge Story  

Despite being a well-known provider of outdoor knife products, the origins of Elk Ridge are not as widely documented. The main reason for this is that Elk Ridge are not so much their own company, more they are a product line of a much larger knife producer known as Master Cutlery. Many of those who are collectors or knife enthusiasts will be quite familiar with Master Cutlery and their offerings. 

They’re a company that, rather than making loads of different styles of knives and naming them all under one umbrella, splits their catalogue into a series of smaller sub-brands to give each style of knife its own identity. This is evidenced in the clear purpose associated with Elk Ridge knives. The Elk Ridge brand serves as one of a few outdoorsman-styled brands from Master Cutlery — Outdoor Life and Survivor being the others. But Elk Ridge finds its niche in the more refined woodsman knife style, with much of their catalogue featuring wooden handles and gold/brass screws.

How To Take Care Of Your Elk Ridge Knife

There’s a lot to be said about Elk Ridge knives, but one consistent phrase surrounding the brand is its affordability. As with a lot of affordable knives, Elk Ridge models see plenty of rough use. After all, that’s very much their purpose. But that’s not to say that these knives can’t last for a long time if they are properly cared for. 

So here’s a tip aimed primarily at caring for stainless steel knives. The main thing to know about stainless steel maintenance is that you don’t need to do much, just make sure it’s done right. This is particularly important around sharpening, where it is recommended to always use a wet stone with plenty of water. Heat is the enemy when it comes to sharpening stainless steel blades, and if you’re seeing sparks it means the edge is overheating. This is a problem due to the way overheating can negatively impact the blade’s composition and heat treatment.
