Bushcraft? Mora knife. Used to be Frosts but now Mora of Sweden... Can't beat the cost and it will do what you want it to do.

Amazon link to a Mora by Sweden

obligatory wiki link

this is what I carry now and I swear by it. Simple. Reliable. Out of the box, Mora's are the sharpest knives you'll find. I like the Classic 2's wooden handle because it doesn't disintegrate like rubber. And it's easy on the eyes.

Mora classic #2

I got it because its $15. I do very little to take care of it (basically just wipping it once on my jeans before putting it back into the sheath) not caring if it gets messed up because its $15. Ive had the knife for about 5 years now with no problems.

Mora No. 2 Classic. Light, cheap, and great quality.

If you want something a little heavier get the 2000. This is a heavy duty knife, don't let the plastic handle fool you.

A Morakniv Classic is a pretty great choice. Comfortable grip, well made, cheap. You just have to be aware that it is carbon steel, so it will rust if you leave it wet, and the sheath it comes in is kinda crappy. If you don't mind those two things, a mora would be great for you. If you'd rather a folding knife, the other one I can recommend is an Opinel. While that particular knife is carbon steel, you can get the Opinel in stainless as well, and it has pretty much all the same advantages of a Mora.

All that being said, so long as your Swiss Army knife is sharp, and you start on an easy bit of wood, soft, no knots, straight grain, you probably don't need a new knife.

Not to be that guy... but knowledge is the cheapest tool. But you probably know this! I'm just reiterating for other viewers. A compass and a map, along with some compass-using skills, would be my absolute first pick for going out in the wild. A knife would be #2 (a close #2), but most of the time you'll never be so far away from civilization that you can't just walk to safety. If you are, and don't have all the tools, you're screwed anyway. But that's more for r/survival rather than r/bushcraft.

So then I'd say get a Mora. The Mora Classic 2 can get to your front door within a week for ~$20, usually less. It's tough as nails, super functional, and classy as hell with it's wooden handle. Be a little carefu because it doesn't have a guard.

But if you're looking for other, more functional items, get yourself a steel cup and a few large trashbags. The trashbags can be used to collect rainwater, as a makeshift tent, maybe a bivy bag, and poke some holes in it and you have a parka.

The steel cup is just the epitome of bushcraft to me: You go into the woods, start a safe fire, and make yourself a cup of tea while enjoying the bush. You can make wind-shields from sticks and saplings (knowledge). Make a fire using wood you've collected (knowledge and matches). And then create a rain shelter to sleep in (knowledge, sticks, and fallen leaves). But what fun is all of that if you don't get to do something neat? Boil some snow or rainwater and make yourself some bush tea. Steel cups are cheap and allow you to do a lot of things in terms of food and water.

Great set. Though if you plan on using that saw often you may want to replace it with a higher quality model. It's a great bang for your buck saw, but in my experience it does not stand up to continued use well. I took mine to work (I work for a tree company) to test it out and it lost a few teeth/started to dull after only 10-15 cuts.

Silky makes great pruning saws, though more expensive ($40~). That type of saw is mostly suited to cutting green wood, however. If you plan on using it mostly for dead stuff (firewood) it may be worth investing in something like a bowsaw that is designed with that purpose in mind.

Disclaimer: I have no personal experience with that particular bowsaw and cannot personally attest to it's quality. Though it does seem well regarded.

Edit: That knife seems nice, but from what I can tell it is not made of high carbon steel so it cannot be used for firestarting on it's own. It may be worth investing in something cheap like a Mora so that you may use it with a flint

Great knife. If you like it, also take a look at the classic Morakniv.

I got this model, but with finger guards, as a first knife for my kids. Sharp as anything out of the box, scandi grind that is very easy to sharpen. But you need to be a bit careful with the carbon steel to avood rust.

I'm a blacksmith. Because you're getting ready to go into college you probably can't afford one of mine, but I'll highly recommend this one as the best knife you can get for under $100.

They can make a big difference but mostly I would say just use what works for you. Personally I use a Mora Classic #2 for almost all my carving, its cheap, and its easy to get it wicked sharp. Occasionally I'll use a smaller blade such as an opinel or a Flexcut. Wood selection is also a big factor, I would recommend grabbing some Basswood if you're just starting out.

u/MistahBradley · 1 pointr/Bowyer

This is what I've got So far it's done pretty good. Then went to Home Depot and bought a hatchet which really helps for slimming down the wood. But until I've got my own house (in an apartment right now) this is the best I can do :/

u/RS14-2 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I've got a few knives, but the interesting ones are an Opinel No 8 and a Mora No 2. They're not traditional, but they work fine as paring knives and are easy to keep very sharp.
