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
Cutting edge length: 110mm

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: lcoolmarko85 Today, 12:44 PMfrank1ss1mo

Hello all, First and foremost, this thread is not designed to be a definitive guide to the kukri, rather a visual repository of the more commonly encountered styles. At the current moment in time there is nobody on earth qualified to do justice to such a vast subject. Many have tried, and all...Last Post By: mrcjgscott Today, 01:39 PMSaint-Just
In oyster country at the moment, and I've struggled for a while to find a suitable oyster knife. The classic ones have a very comfortable, thick wooden handle but a narrow blade: not ideal as 1) the grip for the handle is very good but it is actually safer to grab the blade itself, about 1.5...Last Post By: Nursie Yesterday, 10:38 PMdkonopinski
I have acquired an Sanrenmu 7092SUX-PH. I won't tell you how I got it, but suffice it to say that I'm considering marketing the email trail that resulted in it becoming my property as a sovereign insomnia remedy. I'm not always a patient man but I can be bloody minded if I feel I deserve better...Last Post By: bwildered Today, 02:08 PMMarkemark21

Hi everyone, This is my first post and I've started collecting Barlows. I've been looking at the Taylors Eye Witness range of Premier Barlows and one thing has been bothering me. On most but not all of the photographs I've seen there seems to be an irregular groove at the blade end...Last Post By: Ashley Brayson Today, 07:52 AMswoosh
Pride myself on being able to sharpen all my knives, from bushcrafters to Swiss army knives but one is defeating me completely, from what I can tell it may have been badly sharpened by previous owners. It's my paramilitary 2. I've had it on my sharpmaker, with the edges blacked out with a...Last Post By: swoosh Today, 11:06 AM
