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 ...

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: pagant Today, 12:12 PMCeltic 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: veracocha Today, 10:00 PMRelin
To set the scene a while back Mike Read (PITS) offered me his old grinder as a freebie (still going strong) if i popped up to collect it. While there he was kind enough to make me a wonderful rabbit stew dinner and sit down for conversations all things knifey. I mentioned at the time that...Last Post By: Bluebs4 Today, 09:02 PMpieinthesky
I am about ready to start work on another batch of PITS folders. I still have a few design details to resolve but I am almost there. I have made some small modifications to the design: The handle is slightly longer and deeper towards the butt to fill the hand a bit more. The blade is a bit...Last Post By: Tommo Today, 07:57 AMowen bush

So I'm finding myself slipping down a slippery slope and enjoying owning knives as well as the practicality of EDCs. Now I'm settled in with my Spydercos and Byrd, I'm looking for something a little different and although I've looked at reviews under my eyes are bulging, there's not so many...Last Post By: ThomBassmonkey Today, 12:21 AMDonbot
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. Its getting ridiculous now! I justified this one by telling myself it's a Christmas present to...Last Post By: Guruphil Today, 03:15 PMdkonopinski
