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

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, 07:28 PMNice65

I'll start off. Well HH got the SR1 back in so i just ordered my first Lion Steel and in sexy orange too! Woohoo, always loved the look of this one. This has to be my last knife for 6 months.

As per the Spyderco PITS knife thread Sal has kindly offered to send me the prototype to run a passaround. In case you have been in a cave for the last year or so the knife in question is this one: I'm limiting this passaround to 10 places, with a maximum of 2 weeks per person to try...Last Post By: Leeroy37 Today, 11:20 AMirbailey
After a couple of requests:huh: , I've decided to do a work in progress thread. I'm afraid the idea came about just after I'd cut out my blanks and annealed them, but hey! not to worry. The first picture is rather disturbing, and if you are of a nervous disposition, or have any small children in...Last Post By: Brian19741 Today, 11:58 AMFirefly1
