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: Larsje100 Today, 04:30 PMCeltic Dragon
As mine is still in the smiths (and has been for 6 weeks and no end in sight) The parts I have here are being fantasy pimped :D For those results you'll have to wait a few days. In the mean time to aliviate my suffering, lets see yours :D be it pcp, springer, rimmie or centrefire.Last Post By: mulletman6 Today, 01:03 PMChui
Don't know about you guys, but I am not enjoying this weather - so, being a southern hemisphere boy, I look forward to our annual long weekend down in deepest darkest Kent. This is a chilled, relaxed time with our BB mates in a stunning spot. Paul (Bardster) is our fine, fine host, and as ever,...Last Post By: Saint-Just Today, 05:02 PMRu Titley
Sorry I've not been around much just loads on at the minute . I thought it might be wise to start a Ru projects thread rather than keep on posting individual ones up as it will be easier for me to maintain long term as long as You folks still like to see what Ive been up too ;). Some of you...Last Post By: Frank_Cujo Today, 03:40 PMJonathanD
It's quite rare that I get excited about a knifemaker or knife. Well... OK, that's not quite true. It's quite often I get excited about a knifemaker and/or a knife, but to be fair, those makers are usually only innovators or high end makers like Alan Wood, FGYT, Rob Bayley and my holy of holies Mr...Last Post By: mistwalker Today, 02:53 AMStew
A KITH - Knife In The Hat - Everyone makes something (in this case a Kiridashi) then a list is made and everyone sends their creation to the next person on the list and everyone receives something from a different maker. --------------- So yesterday I was tasked with cutting some new coir...Last Post By: ShaunSA Today, 05:48 PMMakingthecut97
Just out of interest how many of you guys shot? If so what guns do you have, what do you shot and how long did it take for your license to come through? I shoot skeet and sporting clays with my Beretta 686E. I also have a Chopitea side by side 12g which I don't use much, it's mainly a...Last Post By: Norma308 Today, 12:19 PMmistwalker
