  • Sheffield 12-in1 Camp Tool

    I know a fellow who has two Sheffield 12-in1 Camp Tools .... he really likes them .... it looks like an interesting little rig .... one of those multi tools that can be used to do a little bit of a number of things

    our youngest son and his son backpack and camp .... having done that in years past, I've been thinking that such a tool could come in handy .... bottom line Amazon delivered one today .... first reaction is, its a solidly built tool .... in looking at it, I believe the weak point is where the 2 brads connect the axe to the handle .... when using the axe I believe it would be best to use a wooden limb as a hammer as shown in the videos listed in other post .... the soft rubber edge guard is pretty flimsy, doubt it will last long .... the blades in the handle are the strongest I've seen in a multi tool .... my first impression is it should work well within the limits of what it is designed to do

      UPDATE :

      my from the get-go I wasn't happy with the location of the hatchet's cutting edge when the tool is in its sheath .... the easily exposed cutting edge could easily cut someone .... after looking at the Sheffield camp tool and its sheath for a while, I came up with the mod shown below .... a strip was cut from an old Leatherman case and sewn into sheath so as to cover the axe edge ....

        earlier today I gave our Sheffield 12-in-1 to our youngest son .... as noted earlier in this thread he takes our grandson back packing / tent camping a couple of times each year .... after looking at the Sheffield he was very happy with it and believes it will come in handy .... he's looking forward to field testing it and I'm looking forward to hearing his post use impressions
