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 blade Length: 135mm

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: cragmaster Yesterday, 07:29 PMsal
Years ago, there was a long discussion on making a forum knife for the BB forum. After much discussion, it was narrowed to two models (a Native Slipit and a custom design). We made two protos and sent them in to BB. As it turned out, the Native model was selected. Then the Golden factory ended...Last Post By: sal Yesterday, 10:23 PMcybertrix
I have decided to design a new friction folder for myself so I thought about making it a KITH. I am looking at a UK legal blade length but apart from that anything goes. Are any of you interested in joining in, I am thinking about a finish date of sometime in July.Last Post By: cybertrix Yesterday, 07:00 PMbashup
Forge-in Cost is £30. 10 people will make this viable and 25+ will likely make it chaotic. Venue is NR20 with specific directions via PM to anyone confirming attendance Date: 1st and 2nd of August Theme: Make a cheese and tomato sandwich.Last Post By: Stew Yesterday, 03:56 PMaarongough
Hey guys! So as you may know over the last few months I bought and then partially rebuilt a Vertical Machining Center (large CNC milling machine). I captured this process on video here: I realized last night that I hadn't done a WIP thread in a long time so I figured I should start one...Last Post By: aarongough Today, 02:33 PMuser24

What's the situation like in central London with regard to police and public attitudes to people carrying knives on the tube, in big tourist spots etc?

Been thinking about this, and in no particular order, with no more than 1 of any manufacturer (no customs, production only), both styles and actual models - influenced by the 80s take off of quality US knife making companies, due to my age no doubt .......

Hello everyone. I tested out some of the saws on my sawback knives on a 4" Maple branch, and did some chopping in the field... The results were interesting, to say the least... Randall Model 18: Saw stops at around 1/8" depth (as expected). Not expected was that the wood dust produced,...Last Post By: Gaston444 Today, 12:21 PM
