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

Hello folks, After looking forward to it all week, I didn't get out today so no stoving. So I thought that it would maybe get some fresh interest going in this topic again if we discussed our favourite stoves or cookset and, if possible, maybe showed a pic or two of them. I've no pictures at...Last Post By: wazza Yesterday, 07:50 PMSparky750
I've picked up on a few threads a few of us here are vapers, what do you guys use? And more importantly what do you carry each day and in what? Have you given up smoking using one or did it not work for you? I'm down from roughly 40 a day to 3-4 I just don't seem to be able to kick those couple...Last Post By: Vincent Vega Today, 07:31 AMMuskett
I have a Skrama, it arrived today. Testing will have to wait, so this is a my first impression. I really like it. Its not often when someone comes up with a design that is unusual, though something that we have been asking for for yonks but didn't quite know what we wanted. Well in the...Last Post By: Quickbeam Yesterday, 08:09 PMHardrivejack
Hi folks, I'm looking for an edc and have narrowed it down but looking for advice or other suggestions. I currently have a Swiss army tinker but not a massive fan and think they feel flimsy. I have a Taylor's eye witness which is a cracker but I find the blades stiff. I also have a couple of...Last Post By: Paul W Today, 03:30 PMRBR
Howzit everybody? I put up a little introduction on the new members forum yesterday, saying that I would post my first attempt at making a complete knife as soon as it's done. I must admit, I'm way too exited about the whole process so I thought: ”Why not open a 'work in progress' thread?" :D ...Last Post By: Barrel-rider Today, 01:05 PMmyconstantsmile
Dear everyone. Can I pick your brains... I'm trying to look for a SAK for my fiance's stepdad I've never really owned any apart from mini keyring models... So I'm feeling a little lost. More of a leatherman erm man. Hahaha Basically feeling £40 and under. He's a scaffolder by trade....Last Post By: waves Today, 12:16 PMTotem2h
Hello to all, Since a long time I dreamed to make a Scandinavian set.... Here is my first duet Leuku and Puukko with a double sheath. It is the first Leuku and the first double sheath I made. The total length of the Leuku is 32 cms. The blade is a damascus of 1075 carbon steel and pure...Last Post By: Barrel-rider Today, 01:13 PM
