this incredible camping knife is the ultimate camper’s blade you'll ever need... 

Here's how DBAD, the designer, describes the knife in his own words... 

Here is the deal fella and fellas, the dbad Campmaster made by the Khukuri House, designed by 'Yours Truly'. It's phenomenal, it is good for forging, digging cutting. chopping, slicing, separating and you can go through anything with this. This is supposed to be the one in all camp knife, that's why it is called the BAD Camp Master, this is the one go, to bring it in every single camping trip, every single hiking trip that you are going to need. This is the one ultimate camping knife.


What’s so special about the blade?

upper view of campmasters bladeThe perfect heat treated 5160 steel blade is hand forged to an easy to handle 6” with an additional 5.5” full tang. At 7mm thick, this robust blade comes ready for work. The spine is reduced for weight control and a balance not felt in its competitors. The tapering for the spine is really nice that holds the weight and strength throughout the blade. Talking about the tapered 7mm blade which tapers again down to under spine because it steels needs to have penetration abilities to stab through, but you also have the spine for wood processing things. It has an amazing drop point making it able to do fire holes. This is an 11.5 inch overall package with a 6 inch blade but it doesn't look as big as why? because of the 2 inches of blade width. You can hold it really see. The 2 inches belly gives plenty of dig space or to make a little hole or suck something.


Why use wood scales?
Besides paying homage to the traditional knives for centuries before us, the wood scales adapt to the grip in a way that synthetics just can’t match. The organic feel and look is completely complimentary to the overall design. This looks monster in normal hand size. The natural wood handle with lanyard hole the hollow pin, finger grooves all the way through. nice deep. 


Let's get into the sheath, the perfect buffalo skin, awesome soft leather sheath to cover the inserted wood, typical kukri style sheath. The best part of this sheath is every sheath is handmade to the particular knife it belongs to. When the knife forging done is completed then the sheath is made around it. It fits like a glove, fits nice and tight, deep wells act like a handguard to avoid the slippage.

Why Khukuri House?

Making knives at khukuri house is personal, they don't have shelves full of stock when you order one they make one. Some guy gets the steel and bangs away over a fire with the hammer starts the ting ting ting... with pairs of sandals kneeling on the ground, makes you one. That's how real these people are. The people in Nepal are no joke knife makers, completely OLD School, they do it right.

Bad to bone

Very well built knife. The metal stays sharp for so long. I cut wood, meat and burlap sacks. It really holds up. Best grip on any knife I own. This is the fourth knife from KHHI. I will get more!

Dream knife found!

First and foremost great, excellent customer service from the beginning. My purchase was amazing from first contact to finalizing. This knife can do it all when it comes to camping, hunting, hiking. Bold and rugged good looks, feels great in your hands with the grooves. A must for the backpack and by your side for daily use or when someone needs a knife for a fast task. Proudly wearing mine to show and tell. Top notch craftsmanship in my knife and my sheath. Go get you one!!

DBAD Camp Master and EDC knife

Hello I bought the DBAD Camp Master. delivery took place before Christmas this knife is really high-end in its design and finish. very sharp I checked it with the test of the sheet of paper. I allowed myself to improve it with Japanese stones grain 1000 and 3000. the result is monstrous. the heaviness of the blade makes it tilt forward which eliminates the effort of the hand. Congratulations to the Kami who built this knife. I also bought a small EDC knife, for my daughter this little thing of 100 grams is totally formidable. a real 3-inch razor, with a powerful and very hard blade. I had already bought a kukri 3 Chirra from KHHI. these weapons are not made by computers and precision cutters. It is the result of master blacksmiths from a thousand-year-old tradition. I have my next purchase in my head, thank you KHHI see you soon.

That's a knife!

Firstly, shipping time was merely three days, which makes a total of about three and a half weeks from order to receiving - great! Secondly, first impression was OMG, it's a sword - but due to the very well balanced blade and the ergonomic handle you can use it as a precision knife as well as an axe. Compliments to the Maker >J< for the fine craftsmanship!

Finally had the opportunity today to use my new Camp Master knife designed by Donnie B All Day and made by KHHI in Nepal. A thick, semi frozen tree branch was overhanging into the boat ramp area we parked up at and I decided to clear it myself. The blade is only 6" long but due to the full tang design and 2" wide blade, the knife was able to hack through surprisingly well! I inspected the blade when we got home just now and it's still pristine! No rolled edge and still shaving sharp! What an absolute BEAST of a knife in a small form factor! Great job guys!!!
