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: mulletman6 Yesterday, 08:19 PMRopeman
I started taking the 'Winterise your car' thread a little off topic with waffle about my Land Cruiser so I thought I'd start a little thread for folk to chat about their off road wagons. Here's mine, a 1988 Toyota HJ60. 4.0 litre straight six Diesel engine, astonishingly unsophisticated...Last Post By: Modchop Yesterday, 01:01 PMsuingab

It's quite rare that I get excited about a knifemaker or knife. Well... OK, that's not quite true. It's quite often I get excited about a knifemaker and/or a knife, but to be fair, those makers are usually only innovators or high end makers like Alan Wood, FGYT, Rob Bayley and my holy of holies Mr...Last Post By: Tracer Yesterday, 08:37 PMstu112
Hi folks. I was just wondering if any of you guys have a list (mental or physical - I have written mine down) of knives you are wanting to buy within the next 6 months or so? I've been away from the "knife world" for 18-24 months until recently and I haven't really caught up with what's what. I...Last Post By: alphaburner Yesterday, 02:57 PMcragmaster
I just saw a few lovely looking pieinthesky fixed blades flash by on portobello road so started to wonder what else is out there. To start things off, his Mark 3 PITS folder, a wonderful thing... Have a red card to pick up a parcel from the post office :D. That's a picture for...Last Post By: Harry1974 Today, 03:36 AMgregs656
There have been a number of threads recently discussing steel choices and so on, in which I have been pretty vocal. My point, broadly speaking, as been about the performance of knives and how some steels are widely hyped up, and that there are other factors which can have a real influence on knife...Last Post By: hughtrimble Today, 12:27 AMneill116
Here's my attempt at compiling a list of places to buy knife making stuff on the web. I'm sure there's loads more to be added and so I envision this being a working document with new suppliers/categories being added as needed and so long as the last post is copied correctly and then updated then...Last Post By: halloween Yesterday, 11:15 PM
