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: bagman Today, 09:06 AMSmiling-Knife
The basic army-issue clasp knife with marline spike and tin opener in the first part of the 1900s was the pattern 6353/1905. It first appeared in 1905 and remained basically the same until the start of WWII. The original spec comprised of stag scales. The first knife in pic 1 is an example made by...Last Post By: knifecollector Yesterday, 06:19 PMTBM1
Afternoon all, does anyone know of a UK legal multi-tool? I have a leatherman skeletool that I find very handy and just the right size for throwing in the pocket or clipping to a bag. It only has a 2.6 inch blade, however as it has a locking blade we all know that immediately turns it into a...Last Post By: earthman Yesterday, 08:48 PMfromthearth
i think this is in the right section. I just bought a new pair of alt-berg tethera boots after my salomon 4d gtx gave up the ghost. wanted something really rugged and saw the purchase as an investment and as such id like to look after them as best as possible. Obviously my old boots were not...Last Post By: John A. Larsen Yesterday, 05:27 PMsherman1973
Was wondering what you guys have that you couldn't live without? excluding Grinders and heat treat ovens. it could be a Bench, tool storage, type of clamp anything really.

I came across these on another forum a while ago and was instantly intrigued. I loved the look of the exposed tubes and the warm orange glow. After a bit of research I decided to go with a IN-8 kit from pv electronics. The tubes themselves were sourced from ebay and are NOS from Russia. So when...Last Post By: Colin KC Yesterday, 08:39 PMVito
Hello everyone, I've owned several stones so far but what bothered me was that all of them were way too soft for me. They got worn down pretty fast and I had to flatten the stones after about 5minutes of ''medium'' use. True, they quickly abraded that steel but I didn't like them for being...Last Post By: TB_London Yesterday, 11:32 PMroninwt
Hi Folks! I wanna share with you my last experiments/tryouts. The first one its a CPM 3V blade with cryo treatment. Basic shape, flat grind and a thin edge. Since 3V its pretty tough steel i want to try edge stability, i like agresive cutters with thin edge, hope it will do.Last Post By: the gafer Yesterday, 06:02 PM
