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: godzilla Today, 12:11 AMDonbot
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. Its getting ridiculous now! I justified this one by telling myself it's a Christmas present to...Last Post By: avoidspam Today, 12:39 AMRaptureRaptor
Howdy all I've always been enamoured with the idea of being part of a KITH but it doesn't seem that there are any at the mo'. So with that in mind I have decided to put forward a simple KITH idea to see if anyone's as keen as I am for a KITH. The rules as I figure them should be fairly...Last Post By: RaptureRaptor Today, 04:16 AMCronos

I just saw a few lovely looking pieinthesky fixed blades flash by on portobello road so started to wonder what else is out there. To start things off, his Mark 3 PITS folder, a wonderful thing...

Here is my Victorinox Mauser. I bought it in 1987-88 instead of one of the normal red Victorinox knives, because the handle was bigger, knurled, and basically looked overall better handling than any of the smaller, roundier red Victorinox SAKS. Apparantly these are now collector's items, but they...Last Post By: pmc. Today, 12:15 AMpadbadger
I've been thinking about picking up a Snugpak Sleeka jacket for the winter but have noticed the army surplus 'Softie' jacket for a fair bit less - does anyone have any experience with either of them? I wondered if there was much difference between the two.Last Post By: Leeroy37 Yesterday, 04:09 PMhughtrimble
Morning all, I've been incompetent and have failed to get my brother a suitable birthday present. He's currently got a brace of Moras, but I think it's time for something a little nicer. So what are your suggestions for: - Scandi ground (I'd prefer convex, but this is rare on production...Last Post By: packrat Yesterday, 02:34 PM
