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.

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: etorix Today, 12:06 PMNice65

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.

After several years of generally trouble free dealing with the UKBA they've decided to seize all the karambits from our latest shipment, I'm waiting on the paperwork at present but my opinion is it's got to be the oversized lanyard that they've decided must make them a knuckle duster. Mulled...Last Post By: san-mai-usa Today, 05:40 PMmartineden

In all seriousness. I have a plague of vervet monkeys that are getting beyond cheeky. pulling thatch off guest tents, stealing pepper grinders, attempting to eat them (and then dropping them in the river when they cannot) and pretty much anything else not nailed down. My list is endless. ...Last Post By: bayvillageidiot Today, 08:44 PM
