USA -(Ammoland.com)- New for 2018 comes White River’s Camp Cleaver.

This is an all-around handy camp knife will work for both camp chores and skinning. Built along the lines of knives made in the 1800s and early 1900s when a knife was a major tool in the hands of cooks, scouts and hunters in camps and cattle drives across the country.

White River’s Camp Clever features a handy easy to manipulate 0.156-inch thick 5.5-inch long blade resulting in an overall length of 10.25-inches. Through its specifically designed curve, this blade is designed to cut, chop and be very efficient in reduced motion slicing.

“Our Bushcraft team designed this knife for the myriad of duties it can fulfill in the camp or field. This combination of blade curve, thickness and bevel shape, together with the ergonomically designed handle, make this a highly-versatile and efficient knife,” said John Cammenga, White River’s president.

The stone washed finished blade is of ultra-tough CPM S35VN steel that is sharpened then hand leather stropped razor sharp. The ergonomically designed handle is formed of tough linen based Micarta.

Due to design and the nature of the handmade sheath, this particular model will be produced in reduced numbers from other White River knives.

As with everything, White River makes all of its components and materials including the sheath and steel are made in the U.S.A.

White River’s reputation and quality is incredibly high. I have a couple of their knives and they are as good as one can imagine and all American. I can see some of their their stuff getting in to the collectors area much like the Al Mar knives of the early 1980s and Randalls of the 1960s .


I’m pretty cheap but in this case you appear to get what you pay for. According to the industry reviewers, this steel should hold up very well for what it’s designed to do, especially as a meat cleaver and camp cleaver. It should be easily sharpened yet last a very long time.

If anyone’s interested, here’s my source and additional info on the steel used:
