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.
The Strider MT Mod 10:
Overall length of the knife: 255mm
Overall blade Length: 135mm
Cutting edge length: 110mm
Blade Thickness: 6.35mm

Does anyone have experience of this steel type? I believe it was made in the 1970's and is now discontinued. The description from the seller is 'a low alloy steel with 1.35 % carbon and some tungsten, chromium and vanadium'. With some searching I've found this spec: C: 1.30-1.40, SI:...Last Post By: AndreasH Yesterday, 10:34 AMTheEnemyWithin
Good Morning, I'm going to be having a go at making a knife. Ill be using and old file for my first couple to hope to progress onto some 440 as I get into it.

I'm looking for a very simple carbon steel. I want something that will sharpen very easily and take the finest edge possible. No need for high levels of wear resistance or toughness. Ideally available in excess of 6mm thick bars. Any ideas?Last Post By: Ren Today, 02:02 AMwarrensmith

Hello folks, After looking forward to it all week, I didn't get out today so no stoving. So I thought that it would maybe get some fresh interest going in this topic again if we discussed our favourite stoves or cookset and, if possible, maybe showed a pic or two of them. I've no pictures at...Last Post By: Hexagrapher Yesterday, 11:05 PMNice65
Comes vac packed at 99p a pack. Choices were Dal Tadka, Aloo Sag, Paneer Butter Masala, and Chana Masala. Just neads heating, ingredients are all good. Hunk of bread, or some fried meat, and you have a simple, filling meal. I'm tempted to get some more, the dates run out August 2017.Last Post By: rd6743 Yesterday, 07:52 PMPanosEv

Big fan of Mike's tumbled SPITS as it removes the sharp edges, and, well, looks good. Sadly Spyderco have discontinued the plain titanium SPITS in favour of the blue anodised version. Not too keen on that myself as the finish doesn't seem to hold up well at all even after a day or so of use. ...Last Post By: Bluebs4 Yesterday, 05:57 PM
