Camillus knives is one of the oldest knife companies in United States and has been around since 1876. They unfortunately filed for bankruptcy is 2007 and was purchased by Acme United. They no longer make their knives domestically with the exception of a few fixed blades. Since the Acme relaunch of the brand, they have produced quite an array of mostly budget offerings. That's not a bad thing as long as materials and quality are decent.
One of those budget offerings that we are looking at today is the Inject Folding Knife. The Inject caught my eye because it includes two pocket sized tools included in the handle. The company does have a full sized multitool available but it's simply a rebrand from another manufacturer and not unique to Camillus.
I am a member of various forums, knife sites and Facebook groups. I am part of the community not only because I am a knife knut but I like to see what's trending. I've seen many different blades take center stage, many of them budget blades. One blade that I see over and over again is the Gerber Pocket Square.
I've been a blade junkie ever since my first pocket knife about 20 years ago. I didn't get into knives before that because I was a city boy and my dad never carried one. Since my first one I've been hooked, didn't know how I got along before I had one. Using your rudimentary claws and teeth are far less effective than a sharp blade. I'm always on the hunt to the perfect edc blade. I want something light, easy to deploy and holds an edge well.
Case knives have been a name synonymous with family, tradition and quality since 1889. They built their reputation on quality craftsmanship and are proudly made in their Bradford factory here in the USA. Living here in the southeastern United States the company has representation on almost every corner of these small towns and is the preferred carry by many a man worth his salt.
Case pretty much has the traditional knife market cornered but they hadn't ventured into anything moden and frankly didn't seem to care. Something changed and Case surprised us all with new offerings in 2021. The Kinzua is Case's take on a modern EDC folder and they didn't spare the high quality treatment either.
Recently the knife and tool industry has been leaning more and more towards rescue oriented tools such as Benchmade's ERT-1/Houdini tools, the Victorinox Rescue Tool and more traditional offerings like NOV8's ResQMe tool. Jumping on the bandwagon is traditional US knifemaker Utica/Kutmaster with their latest rescue tools.
