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.
The Strider MT Mod 10:
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: Almost Human Today, 02:45 PMDonbot
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: Almost Human Today, 01:00 PMRu Titley
Sorry I've not been around much just loads on at the minute . I thought it might be wise to start a Ru projects thread rather than keep on posting individual ones up as it will be easier for me to maintain long term as long as You folks still like to see what Ive been up too ;). Some of you...Last Post By: Paul W Today, 11:28 PMHovinKnives
I started with knife making now in march, this is my passion now, the knives are getting better and better. My inspiration are Perkinknives, Jay Fisher, mike Carter. Just add me or go visit, all the pictures/albums are available for the public. ...Last Post By: tomancik Today, 05:09 AMpackrat
Right, bit of an experiment, for a bit of fun, let's see how it goes down! Yes folks, all you have to do to win one of these fantastic prizes, is write a Haiku or a Limerick that is knife-related (however vaguely), and better than everyone else's, before next Sunday 8pm. I will post my own...Last Post By: *Dusty* Today, 08:33 PMNoddy
Game! :) I feel a need for a great big coat for sitting and standing around in, and just, you know putting on when getting out of the car. I have a ton of fleeces and windbreakers and downies and cottons and waterproofs etc all of which layer up lovely, but I'd like an option of one coat. ...Last Post By: MALCOLM Today, 07:41 AMRalph G
I was playing aroung with some small knives I made from very thin stock. In general the trend goes to thicker blades - I think most users fear that thinner knives will break much too esay. I know no one I am aware of now (not that it doesnt exist) who did some testing on thin stock knives...Last Post By: cuddly Today, 10:57 AMjhobson
I bought a Perris lathe a year ago, thinking it would be just as good as a Cowells (they cost £3K). It was rubbish. Throwing good money after bad, and obscene amounts of time, it now looks OK. Probably doesn't work any better :( It's got some cool features: backgear, auto traverse, a long...Last Post By: ovid Today, 08:35 PMAbyrvalg
This is my experiment to combine wood carving and Sami antler carving. Woven pattern is common is Sami designs and I really like it carved in wood. So, here is a combination of both. Blade is Polar 125 mm carbon still. Handle - osage orange, walnut and deer antler. Sheath - walnut with deer antler...Last Post By: Abyrvalg Today, 10:14 PM
