One of the joys of camping is having the chance to use your knife!
Let's see what everyone has.

My battered old Swiss Army Knife has been refurbished, free of charge, once. It has picked up more battle scars again, but I'm sure it will outlive me.
I use my Webley & Scott knife for the bigger jobs.

in all my years of hillwalking / wild camping don't think I have ever had any need for a knife, I have a scalpel blade in my emergency kit in case I have ever needed to cut anything (t is the smallest lightest blade I can think of) but can't remember ever having cause to use that. I have a plastic spoon for eating with and if I felt the need a tent peg for stirring the pasta. Everything about my kit needs to be super light or have duel function.

What do you use yours for?

I have a Mora Bushcraft - it's used mainly for prepping kindling and batoning etc. for campfires, and the square ground back of the blade works well with a firesteel.

Much the same as @Andy_R above. Use the bigger on for cutting up steaks and stuff when Ive got other people with me and limited pan space, and hacking wood for the little stove. The saw blade on the Swiss Army one is great for cutting up bigger fallen branches.
I'm just a big kid and like playing with knives and not getting in trouble!

I would never go camping without my Swiss Army Knife! I only generally take sporks as cutlery and would be lost without it.
I had mine repaired for free at Burton McCall a couple of years ago as part of the lifetime warranty. Took a while to get it back but what a great service.
It's one of my favourite possessions!
