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 ...by

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: Exodus Today, 12:32 PMDennis H

What's the top singular AAA torch that's currently on the market? The only one I've ever had is Maglite Solitaire, real old school hey.:lol: OK despite it being 'old school' I really like the fact that it can tail stand and that the head is tightened to 'turn off'. From what I gather, all the...Last Post By: Chloe Today, 01:15 AMfilleep
My Para 2 arrived today, so a quick look at it next to a Manix 2, a knife I remain impressed with. Phone camera in dim late afternoon so don't look if you expect Martineden standard thread. I was naively surprised by the similarities, expecting the P2 to be much slighter and more "tactical"...Last Post By: topheronetwoo Today, 02:55 AMd13avo

Hello all at BB I am really starting to love slip-joints/non-locking knives. I am liking more traditional style slip-joints like toothpicks, however I still love vic's. What are your favorite slip-joints? Cheers, AlexLast Post By: JimTheBob Yesterday, 09:59 PM
