Kershaw Camp 18 Machete | 24" Overall, Full Tang, 65Mn Steel, KS1074
Camp 18 is our biggest and 'baddest' blade.
Camp 18 is the biggest zombie whacker in the Kershaw stable. On the other hand, we think it makes a pretty darn successful camp knife, too.
With its big 18-in. blade, it takes on campsite and other outdoor chores with ease. From clearing brush to making kindling, Camp 18 is the ideal outdoor and survival tool. Cut, slash, hack, split, scrape — just about any task you ask of it, the Camp 18 can handle. The full-tang Camp 18 is made of carbon tool steel for toughness and wear resistance. A basic black powder coat protects the steel and makes maintenance easier.
You’ll like the secure, contoured grip of the Camp 18, too. The handle has a built-in hand guard and is drilled in both front and rear so you can attach a lanyard either place — or both — for carrying versatility. Like the other knives in our Camp series, the Camp 18 comes with its own moulded sheath with study nylon straps. Whether you're whacking zombies or underbrush, Camp 18 is the tool of choice.

Kershaw camp 18By: Rudy Carle on 11 December 2019Brilliant value for money. Well balanced carbon steel, full tang, fuller grooves with great non slip grip. Quite sharp out of the box but a few minutes work has made this great blade surgically Sharp, it is now almost scary sharp so I have added a lanyard to it for safety. The blade retains its edge quite well. I highly recomed this camp knife as it can do absolutely anything around the camp site. From battoning firewood to cleaving when dressing your kill. Not a tool for the faint of heart. The only negative I can find is the scabbard is a little lose so it does rattle a bit. Fixed this with a heat gun, a couple of dowels and some clamps, now the scabbard has some friction so the blade does not easily slip out when not clipped. This is not a collector's item, it is a tool to be used. It does look awesome though. Whenever I am out camping and hunting it is part of my kit, I am never without it when out bush.
