The knives: A Chris Reeve Pacific, Strider MT Mod10 and a Fallkniven A1.
I thought it might be interesting to do a round-up of these 3 classic knives. I haven't got the time with them to do a field review yet. I've had the A1 for ages and pounded pretty hard on it, but the strider hasn't been with me long and the Chris Reeve Pacific hasn't left the house yet. But that shouldn't detract from the benefits of a closer look at them on the table.
All 3 of these knives represent some of the best in the industry, classic military designs from some of the best cutlers in the business. They may seem very different, but they merit comparison because they are all designed to serve in a similar role and succeed and fail in that role to various degrees. Right, lets take a closer look - get comfy, this is going to be a long one folks.

Overall length of the knife: 255mm
Overall blade Length: 135mm

Museum piece, or the perfect cookset for the end of days?
Well, I dont know about the post-apocalyptic bit, but I like this stove loads and although production of the SIGG cookset stopped about 1990, I think it's hard to beat.
The cookset is very reminiscent of the trangia set, is about the same size and weight and works in a similar way, with some crucial differences though. It was made in several flavours and different materials (though most ...

Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) SamLast Post By: fromthearth Today, 08:23 AMpieinthesky
I am about ready to start work on another batch of PITS folders. I still have a few design details to resolve but I am almost there. I have made some small modifications to the design: The handle is slightly longer and deeper towards the butt to fill the hand a bit more. The blade is a bit...Last Post By: minds_eye Yesterday, 11:33 AMBasemetal
Been thinking for a while that it's loads of fun filling tins and pouches with useful bits and bobs, but that in the UK we don't really get into fishing /snaring/ water still-type survival situations. We get hurt and wet and hypothermic. To narrow the field a bit, I'm thinking my most likely...Last Post By: Basemetal Yesterday, 11:46 AMSupa
I see a lot of 4x4's and motorbike threads on here but not many for the 2 wheeled pedaly variety so here's my brace of 2 wheelers.. My custom DB Peak 29er. She's ugly, she's a brute but she can take a bashing and hasn't bronken in a way I couldn't fix with some allen keys and a hammer! ...Last Post By: Supa Yesterday, 08:18 PMRobevs73

I am intrigued to know how much you are prepared to pay for a knife you are really prepared to EDC. (Around the house doesn't count!!) In a way it is a measure of how much you are prepared to lose. Problem is if you like a knife too much to lose it constrains it to a life of a drawer queen!Last Post By: activebushcraft Yesterday, 05:23 PMAbooPham

Went to Sainsbury's this afternoon and among other things, noticed they were stocking Nido whole milk powder. I'd heard this stuff was supposed to be good, so I picked up a 400g tin. It's amazing. Add water and it's err, ...milk. Pretty much exactly the same as silvertop. Easily good enough to...Last Post By: john wings Yesterday, 02:26 PM
