Biggest Kitchen Knives

One thing I would like to admit is that kitchen knife sets are just straight up a big no-no. While these may be appealing from the economical perspective because you get multiple knives for a decent price, the truth is that they are usually very disappointing. As a result of my bad experience with knife sets, I decided to go A La Carte’ when buying kitchen knives. I found that this was a better way to go when hunting for a high quality, durable and functional kitchen knife.

Also, size is definitely an important factor for me when it comes to knives. I personally prefer the biggest kitchen knife for myself because it is sturdier and does a better job at cutting, slicing, chopping, etc. The following is a list I’ve compiled of the top 5 big kitchen knives which would prove to be great additions to the utensils stash:

#1: Wusthof 4519-1/36-100 Gourmet 14 inch Brisket Slicer

With a blade measuring 14 inches in length, this knife definitely leans on the bigger end of the size spectrum. It is ideal for slicing or cutting briskets and other large cuts of meat. A notable feature of this knife is its ABS polymer handle which is capable of resisting high heat, therefore you can comfortably carve or slice a piping hot cut of meat. Also, the handle has three rivets and offer a comfortable grip with its ergonomic design. The high carbon stainless steel blade is the knife’s USP as it features a hollow edge and is designed to provide perfect precision when cutting.

#2: Fat Daddio’s Bread/Cake Knives 14 inches

The 14 inch long serrated edge of the blade allows it to slice through breads and cakes cleanly, i.e. it glides through the cake layers or the bread smoothly and effortlessly to ensure that you get a clean cut instead of a crushed piece. Made from 16 gauge stainless steel, the knife is quite durable and its comfort grip handle adds to the experience! The handle isn’t geared to be used left or right handed therefore users would be able to use it comfortably irrespective of whether they are lefties or righties. The knife comes with a plastic sleeve for added safety when storing away.

#3: Mercer Culinary Millennia 14 inch Granton Edge Slicer Knife

Mercer Culinary Millennia 14-Inch Granton-Edge Slicer KnifeMercer Culinary is a trustworthy name that is synonymous with quality professional cutlery. It has been in the industry for more than thirty years and provides the choicest cutlery for use by professional chefs.

The handle is made from a combination of Santoprene and Polypropylene. It boasts of an ergonomic design and has a protective finger guard and slip resistant textured finger points for maximum comfort and safety during use. What’s more, the knife holds an NSF certification and also comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

#4: Victorinox Cimeter 14” Blade

The knife has a good balance and a curved edge which makes it perfect for breaking down and carving large carcasses such as hogs, beef, lamb, etc. Of course, it can also be used for cutting vegetables, breads, cakes and other items.

#5: Mundial 5617-14 Cimeter Knife

Mundial 5617-14 14-Inch Cimeter Knife, Black One look at the knife and you can tell that it is a cimeter steak knife, one that is meant for use on meats. This NSF certified knife has a long 14 inch blade that performs impressively even in the most demanding tasks.

The handle contains an anti-microbial protection, which is very useful for hygiene purpose as it inhibits or kills the growth of harmful micro-organisms on its plastic surface. The long blade of the knife comes in handy for cutting large vegetables like pumpkins or fruits such as pineapples and watermelons.

Conclusion

Top 5 Tips To Choose The Right Camping Backpack

camping tipsWhen you are going camping, there is one tiny but important factor that you have to consider so that you would have a good experience while going outdoors. You need to have a backpack that will be comfortable bringing as you trek different outdoor venues.

Backpacks can affect your camping trip and this was proven by a camper before who had his hips damaged upon putting an ill-fitting backpack on during the entire trip. However, after how many years and a second try at the same trip but with a comfy backpack, the trip was finished successfully. There are some tips that you should look at when shopping for your backpack

1) Know your needs

Camping needs vary from a camper or hiker to another. Some would opt to bring only a few things that are really essential while some would opt to find a bit more of comfort by bringing many things along on their backpacks. The latter case is usually true when people are planning to stay outdoors or in the wilderness for a month or more. Once you have already determined the necessary things to bring, it will be easier for you to estimate how your backpack should be.

2) You can ask the capacity of the backpack from the sales representative.

The salesperson can explain to you the space that will be given to you by the backpack. For a safe choice, you should just choose a backpack that will fit your needs as if you are going on a very long trip.

3) Prioritize comfort

This means that you should look for a backpack that would allow you to put in all the things that you need for camping but despite its resulting weight, you would still be able to carry it without exerting too much energy. This is possible if you will choose a backpack that is good at weight distribution for your comfort. You can test this by carrying different weights of sand bags. You can add more sand bags until you will stop at the weight that you are still comfortable carrying.

4) You should also look at the straps of the bags shoulder and hip straps

You should distribute the weight of the contents of your bag by letting the shoulder straps carry 30% of the weight while the hip straps should carry the remaining 70%. The hip strap should carry more as it has more stability. Another thing that you should look into is the extent of the mobility that you can do. It should not restrict your movements.

Backpacks should have sternum straps too in order to stabilize the weight that you will carry while trekking to your main camping spot. These straps are ideal for putting just below your collarbone for more stability.

5) Pick a frame for your backpack

There are external and internal frames. A backpack with external frames is ideal for novice campers and even kids given that you will pass by easy to follow trails. A backpack with internal frames is, on the other hand, ideal for hard trails because it allows you to move quite freely so that you can better control your moves.

4 Best Camping Tips For The Winter

winter campingOutdoor camping is a fun adventure for the entire family. Every single camping trip requires some planning to make sure that you have got the necessary supplies as well as safety equipment. But camping during the winter season has particular cautions that ought to be taken. Being ready for anything is important during the cold.  Read through 4 essential winter camping tips below.

1) Clothing

Clothing is especially vital during the winter season. Whether remaining at the campsite or going out for a backpack it is essential to maintain your body’s temperature and avoid the harmful effects of winter, for example, hypothermia. Make it a point to always wear the hat. As much as 80 percent of your heat could be lost from your head, therefore, putting on a hat is important.

Put on a number of layers of clothing and choose an outer clothing which is waterproof. Wear comfortable, wool socks. Putting on 2 pairs of socks is recommended for warmth as well as comfort. Always put on boots which are suitable for cold temperature and are also water-resistant. Keeping the feet dry and warm is crucial for preventing hypothermia.

2) Keep Yourself Warm

Be sure you have got a warm fire at the campsite and that the sleeping arrangements are appropriately protected from the cold. Select sleeping bags as well as sleeping mats which are waterproof and feature warm linings. Be sure you get into your sleeping bag which is already dry and warm. Perform some workouts and warm up by the fire prior to getting into your tent and falling asleep. For those who have wet clothing on, replace it and put on dry clothing while sleeping.

3) Healthy diet

You will find yourself less hungry during the cold months but never neglect nutrition. It can help to keep the energy level up. Hot drinks will also help. Avoid coffee, tea, as well as alcohol in case you are experiencing the effects of hypothermia since they are going to thin the blood and enhance the symptoms.

4) Be ready for emergencies.

It is not unusual to have an unexpected major shift in weather conditions leaving you stranded and struggling to go back to your campsite. Additionally, it is feasible to have an accident like slipping on a slippery incline or even falling into freezing water through the ice. Being ready for these kinds of disasters might imply the difference between life and death. Also have waterproof matches, foodstuff as well as water supplies, first aid kits and blankets available.

How to Start a Campfire?

campfireWhen you hear the word campfire, what immediately comes to your mind? Of course a swirl of pleasant images and perhaps nostalgic memories of all times. The most iconic being a welcoming campfire shared by friends and loved ones.

Besides warding off a cold chilly night, a campfire is quite often a place where family, friends, lovebirds and acquaintances gather together to lounge, roast marshmallows, chat or just silently stare at the empty sky or glowing coals and let their minds wander.

Campfire has a magnetic power that attracts all of us. But before divulging into such nirvana, do you really know how to start a campfire? Well, not knowing how isn’t a crime and it isn’t that hard.

Here is a step by step guideline of how to start one.

Gather all that you need

There’s a list of items necessary to start a campfire than just placing a few logs and tossing on a match.

Here’s is a list of what you’ll need.

  • Tinder or wood shavings or commercial fire sticks
  • Kindlings which are twigs or small branches
  • Firewood
  • A lighter or match box

Building the campfire

Before starting a campfire, it has to be built first.Push the ash as well as charcoal from previous fires to the extreme outer edge of the ring to create enough room for the new campfire, often called the fire pit.You can as well create your fire pit by clearing away any vegetation or dead grass around.

Then dig a pit into the cleared soil to set the loose dirt aside, this can be useful in case of emergency. Also, you can mound the soil or large rocks around the sides of the pit. This acts as a firewall and insulates the fire.

Follow the following instruction to get your campfire burning.

  • Next, just at the center of the ring, keenly lay a bed of tinder.
  • Then create a larger teepee of firewood on or over the kindling.
  • After this lit the fire with a matchbox of a lighter. The fire flames will rise to the kindling which in turn lit the larger wood.
  • Congratulations for lighting your first campfire and enjoy the fruits of your hard labor.

One of the most important things that you should never forget to get as you go camping is a sleeping bag. The big task is knowing how to choose sleeping bags for camping. There are a number of factors that you should consider as you get you camping sleeping bag.

The Temperature

Different sleeping bags have different temperature ratings. This helps you know the average temperature that will keep you warm while camping. If for instance a sleeping bag is ’30-degree bag,’ this means that you should still be fine even if the air temperature drops to no lower than 30 degrees. The manufacturer of course assumes that you will use a sleeping pad under the bag as well as wear warm sleeping clothes. Different manufactures have different ratings on sleeping bags. However, camping bags usually have a temperature rating of +15 degrees & 50 degrees.

Shape

Compared to backpacking bags, camping bags have more room making them more comfortable. Sleeping bags come in different shapes and sizes. There are rectangular sleeping bags, mummy bags, barrel shaped and double wide sleeping bags. Most of these can be used for both backpacking and camping. Just chose a shape that you are most comfortable with to suit your needs.

Type of Insulation on the Sleeping bag

Sleeping bags are either made of synthetic insulation or goose down insulation. Synthetic insulation is strong and dries quickly. It is affordable but if you are looking to use your sleeping bag for backpacking as well, it might not serve the purpose.

Goose down insulation is more durable and is easy to compress compared to synthetic insulation. It is however a bit higher on the price. When Goose down insulation gets wet it loses its insulating power.

Well, these are the most important aspects that you should look at as you choose sleeping bags for camping. Keep in mind that there are kids as well as women’s sleeping bags as well that are ideally designed to suit their needs.
