The Drop: Vosteed Minibarbar Cleaver Knife

It’s a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

Outdoor activities like camping and hiking place unique demands on your everyday carry, and you must be ready. You can get away with using urban EDC gear you would bring around when you’re near home, but it would help to have more sturdy and durable tools for extended hikes and hunting trips. That also applies to the knives you bring, especially if you plan to cook in the field. That’s where a dedicated outdoor fixed-blade cleaver knife like the Vosteed Minibarbar comes into play.

The Vosteed Minibarbar is a one-knife option that works as a camp and bushcraft knife and a cleaver knife when you’re in the great outdoors. Its full-tang cleaver design makes it great for rough chopping, whether taking down branches, prepping veggies, or breaking down game meats. The 7Cr17MoV base stainless steel provides a good platform for keeping and maintaining a sharp edge. You have a choice of four designs: a stonewashed black blade with black Micarta scales, satin with white G-10, satin with green Micarta, and the most eye-catching model with a Damascus pattern and gray G-10 scales.

You might ask what sets this particular knife apart from a kitchen cleaver you might already have in your knife block at home. The Minibarbar features either grippy G-10 or Micarta handle scales in a custom “frag” pattern on the tang. These provide way more grip than a standard kitchen knife and will do the job in inclement weather conditions where a kitchen knife would not. An integrated bottle opener at the knife’s pommel also makes it handy for pairing a cold one with the meal you’ve prepared.

What we like: The Vosteed Minibarbar provides a durable 6″ fixed-blade cleaver for outdoor excursions at a very approachable price. It’s a solid option for an all-in-one bushcraft knife and outdoor kitchen needs.

What to watch out for: Standard crowdfunding disclaimer here, so just be aware of how pledging on Kickstarter works. The Minibarbar is also slated to start shipping its first batch in June.

Final verdict: If you’re willing to take a shot, the Vosteed Minibarbar presents an exciting option for camp and outdoor kitchen knife enthusiasts. It can also work as a statement piece in your home kitchen if you go hiking, hunting, or camping infrequently.
