    Brandish the MSR Alpine Kitchen Knife and prep your camping meals faster than ever. Stainless steel construction helps this knife stand up to seasons of use, and the square tip helps this knife slide easily and safely into one of the pockets on your backpacking bag. Sure, your multi-tool might have a blade, but it doesn't hold a candle to the Alpine Knife.

    • Stainless steel blade maintains its sharpness even after extended use
    • Santoku-style blade has a slight curve for fast chopping and a square tip that makes packing this knife safer and easier
    • Synthetic handle is highly durable, lightweight, and easy to clean
    • Vented sheath protects the knife edge and makes the sheath easier to clean
    • Item #CAS0813

    For The Love of Pizza

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    A few weeks ago, my friends invited me to their house for dinner. It was a dirtbag's dream: Pillsbury pizza dough and some cheap toppings. When it came time to cut our gourmet 'za, my friends struggled over and over again to cut it with one of their dull knives. So, I decided that they needed the MSR Alpine Kitchen Knife.

    Outcome: they love it! They use it indoors and outdoors and say that it's sharp, lightweight, and an all-around awesome knife.

    Great camp kitchen knife

      If you're into the whole brevity thing: this knife cuts stuff. The rest of the story: this knife really takes an edge with a DMT sharpener. I've been able to get it scary sharp before multiday trips and it keep its edge the whole time. It's easy to clean. The sheath does it job as far as protecting the edge, but it allows dirt and dust to get to the blade while stored.

      Great camp kitchen knife

      Get it!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use this a lot for car camping, not backpacking. Knife stays very sharp all the times. Make sure you clean it right away and keep it dry. Don't let water to sit on it too long or it will rust. Very common for a lot of knife. This knife cuts like a pro.

      The Perfect Knife

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This knife is great for all around use. I bought it primarily for backpacking, but find myself using it at home too. It's a little bit smaller in size which makes it compact and lightweight, and the blade cover is perfect for traveling.

      Good Smaller Knife

        This is a great camp knife choice! It is a little smaller- if you are looking for a larger chopping knife, I recommend the Alpine Chef's Knife. But as far as a small car-camp knife goes, this is your ticket. Chops well, and it's super nice that it comes with it's own case.

        Great trail knife

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Sharp little knife and really light. Handle suits people with larger hands better, I've had comfort complaints from people with small hands. Be careful the dishwasher will give the stainless steel rust spots.

        great little knife

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Overall: Highly recommend for car camping

        Pros: Light, inexpensive, sharp, blade guard

        Cons: not the best construction quality

        I'm always debating whether to bring a nice kitchen knife on camping trips. Sure it'd be nice to have, but do I want to haul it around, plus how do I protect it and keep it from cutting up my gear when packed?

        Well, thought I'd give this knife a try for a recent car camping road trip and was not disappointed.

        For $10 bucks this knife is sharp, decently constructed, and the blade guard is a great little bonus.

        No more using the grimey multi-tool on food.


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Nice size. Kinda a luxury but I don't have to worry what it has been used for before cutting food. Also, has anyone looked into the groove of a well used folding knife?

        Great knife, fixable sheath

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I think I have a previous version of this knife that I just picked up. Comes super-sharp and is surprisingly lightweight.

        This may be fixed in the newer models, but on mine, the sheath doesn't have a tight grip on the knife and will come off with the flick of a wrist. As I am naturally averse to being stabbed in the back while this thing is in my pack, I put a small strip of electrical tape inside one of the panels on the sheath. Fixed the problem right up, keeps the knife where it's supposed to be, doesn't inhibit movement when you want to draw the knife, and is nearly invisible on the black sheath.

        Looking forward to doing some campfire cooking with this bad boy.
