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.
The Strider MT Mod 10:
Overall length of the knife: 255mm
Overall blade Length: 135mm
Cutting edge length: 110mm
Blade Thickness: 6.35mm

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, 04:36 PMBasemetal

In need of a panel loading back pack for long weekend/weekend travel. Budget is the lower the better and I am more than happy to go used - I have lots of bags and I don't expect this one will get tons of use, but it will be very useful to fill a niche. I have an Osprey 80 which I have been...Last Post By: gregs656 Yesterday, 10:59 PMChrisBee
I'd imagine it won't be cheap, the xm-18 goes for about $400. Hopefully this will come in at less than my recent laptop cost me. http://www.thetruthaboutknives.com/2017/02/hinderer-debuts-slipjoint-folder-prior-to-iwa-show/Last Post By: earthman Today, 04:38 PMginda

I'm still going through my stag box, this is a Taylor's "Eye Witness". Its a long knife with a violin or swell centre shape with a long blade measuring 3.5" but would have been another 0.25" if the tip was still there. The small blade is about 2.5" long and again it has lost a little bit off the...Last Post By: OWDTOM Today, 12:47 PM
