The Camp-Lore Series was developed to answer the demand for traditional, basic, bushcraft knives. The designers of this knife series come from unique backgrounds and experiences, with each considered to be one of the best in their field. All of the Camp-Lore knives are simple, traditional, fixed blade designs that have been field-proven for years. Keeping with that simplistic approach, ESEE builds the Camp-Lore line in the USA utilizing 1095 carbon steel blades and removable Micarta handles. Each Camp-Lore knife comes with a USA made traditional pouch sheath using leather supplied by one of the oldest tanneries in North America.
When it comes to wilderness chores, sometimes simple and straightforward is the best approach. The ESEE Camp-Lore PR4 is Patrick Rollins’ take on Horace Kephart’s classic design. The original prototype was made by James Gibson and tested extensively by Patrick during survival classes, off-trail backpacking, hiking, and camping. The Rowen built production PR4 features a 4.19″ blade with a 4.75″ handle, 0.125″ thick 1095 high carbon steel blade, 90-degree spine for striking a Ferro rod and a leather drop sheath. It may not be pretty but it is designed to work, like all the other ESEE Knives.
