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: NoFair Today, 09:32 PMwellington03
Dating vintage knives is always very difficult and uncertain, it can be done to a degree by looking at the knife, pattern materials used etc a major clue can be how the blade/blades are marked.

I have decided to design a new friction folder for myself so I thought about making it a KITH. I am looking at a UK legal blade length but apart from that anything goes. Are any of you interested in joining in, I am thinking about a finish date of sometime in July.Last Post By: danbow Today, 09:33 PMHatethatgiraffe
Met up with Danny (Basemetal) yesterday to tackle the Aonach Eagach ridge in Glen Coe. Both had a bit of trepidation throughout the week due to there being heavy snow forecast and with that in mind we had a couple of other routes on the back burner just incase - the ridge has a bit of a reputation...Last Post By: Basemetal Today, 07:57 PMNavaja
