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: Paul W Today, 07:23 PMRaptureRaptor
Howdy all I've always been enamoured with the idea of being part of a KITH but it doesn't seem that there are any at the mo'. So with that in mind I have decided to put forward a simple KITH idea to see if anyone's as keen as I am for a KITH. The rules as I figure them should be fairly...Last Post By: Roadcat Today, 06:44 PMcarlMichael

Original thread here, thought I'd move it into projects. Right, I was just thinking that my 9054 must be due any day when it dropped through the door. First impressions are positive. The machining is very good; this is most notable on the G10 - on, say, the 763 there are clear machining...Last Post By: gregs656 Today, 03:00 PMpackrat
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: Schnapp Doodle Yesterday, 10:56 PMRussell White
Hi folks, these were a WIP project started quite a few months ago here but, as most of you know, I was taken ill in October and spent 3 months in hospital so the project stalled. I tried a few weeks ago to make some progress on them, but my stay in hospital had taken more out of me than I thought....Last Post By: panpeers Today, 10:52 AM
