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.

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: Paul W Today, 10:30 AMCeltic Dragon
As mine is still in the smiths (and has been for 6 weeks and no end in sight) The parts I have here are being fantasy pimped :D For those results you'll have to wait a few days. In the mean time to aliviate my suffering, lets see yours :D be it pcp, springer, rimmie or centrefire.Last Post By: mirage Today, 09:08 AMmyconstantsmile
Could I pick your brains about the best system to sharpen and reprofile a knife. I currently have a spyderco sharp maker. The problem I'm having is it takes ages to get chips out. Is there a better or quicker system for this?Last Post By: mirage Today, 09:21 AMpieinthesky

Dear All I decided to try to make a twisted serpent in a serpent in a sword! Ambitious for me but so far no major disasters! Trying to base it on the below sword.
