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: wessex Today, 12:23 AMKitman22

I thought it would be nice to do a WIP on a new slip joint Trapper a man called Bob in the USA has asked me to make. This will take several posts over the following weeks. Paul.

In the style of good dictators everywhere I have unilaterally decided that we need a meet-up. :D Sunday 4th May; 1pm; Fat Cat pub Sheffield.

Hi all Over the last two years I've learnt a lot about sharpening and can put a really nice edge on a blade but I was wondering if there's ever a time when you're hollow grinding a knife that you'd want a thicker edge? Now I know that thinner equals better cutting performance but is there a...Last Post By: Eee Yesterday, 10:25 PMroestalker270

Not to worry though, i have stock and will be selling this but when it has gone, its gone! MX stocks getting low, order...Last Post By: Jedidiah Yesterday, 08:24 PMdizz
I recently sold a nice Buck 110 as it was too big and heavy for EDC and wasn't getting used, and went back to plying with my Spydecos. Since then I have been getting more interested in traditional folders, Case, Taylorís Eye Witness, Gec etc and now hanker after a smaller Buck 112 ranger, 501...Last Post By: Maverick1969 Yesterday, 11:24 PMArclightuk
