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: Rhyan Today, 10:53 AMKitman22

I've been using the Spyderco Bill Moran but fancy a change. The majority of use is for food prep and I find the 3mm blade thickness gets 1/2 way through whatever I've cutting and just snaps the rest rather than cut. What to you guys use for food prep? I cant seem to find anything thin enough,...Last Post By: jimmypie Today, 08:02 PM
