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: rocketdogbert Today, 08:51 PMEdgePal
This is something extra – at least for me. I found a man here in Sweden, he is 26 years old and he have make knifes for about 1,5 years now. His name is Edvin. Edvin is an archeologist and he make replicas of old Viking and dark ages knifes, you se some pictures of his knifes below. It is...Last Post By: Edvin Today, 09:12 AMMartyn

These have to be the bargain of the century. I've had a few and replaced the one that was stolen because I liked it so much and also got my dad one last year. Recently been reduced to £2.99 which really can't be sniffed at! Free delivery too. UK notes dont fit in the slot the way US dollars do...Last Post By: gregs656 Today, 12:17 PMNativePaul
Hi all, I know that this is probably the opposite of what this forum is about, but as a bunch of knife lovers you may have come across something out of the usual connoisseur / collectors range normally found here, and in the bargain basement that you may have laughed at and ridiculed as being...Last Post By: Nice65 Today, 01:35 AMminds_eye
In the history of my mundane questions on BB, I think this one takes the biscuit. I'm after some decent ziplock type bags for carrying snacks etc whilst hiking. I used to have some freezer type ones we used for soup etc that were wider at the base, would stand up for filling, and had two...Last Post By: Basemetal Today, 05:46 PMRobevs73
