Posted on 15 April 2014

Much like guns, knives are an intensely personal choice and there are a multitude of designs available to choose from. From cost effective to expensive, you can get a variety of fixed blade knives tailored for your use in the military or law enforcement arena. This week we’re going to take a look at some that I’ve tested and how they’ve held up across time.

KA-BAR Zombie Killer War Sword Review

Posted on 11 April 2014

The blade is long enough and heavy enough to chop with comfortably. The 20 degree edge angle holds pretty well and is easy enough to clean up when the time comes. The War Sword had no problem cutting through any of the materials and chopped through the 1×3 with very little effort. The blade held up well as I chopped and hacked at the plastic construction bucket, biting off chunks as the blade worked.

Big vs. Little (Knives)

Posted on 11 April 2014

I grew up in the era of the first couple Rambo movies and was firmly embedded with the thought that a good survival knife had to be big, have saw teeth, a hollow handle, a lanyard and in general look mean enough to take down a Cape Buffalo.

Posted on 10 April 2014

The Paraframe II Tanto is part of Gerber’s Tactical line, which tells me that it was built to withstand the abuse that law enforcement and military will give it.

The Buck Hoodlum Knife Review

Posted on 08 April 2014

There I was, slowly but steadily striding through the chest high grass that was so thick I couldn’t even see my feet. It was dusk and in my left hand I had my flashlight, sweeping the beam back and forth as I tried to find an easier path through the brush. In my right hand was my Buck Hoodlum, its 10″ blade serving to cut the tops off of even taller grass and ready in case I ran into any unfriendly creepy-crawlies.

5.11 Tactical Scout Folder Knife

Posted on 03 April 2014

Across the span of the past decade or so we’ve seen companies who traditionally deal in one line of products expand their offerings so that they offer multiple lines. Doing so is only smart business but sometimes we – the customers – need to adjust our thinking as a result. If we’re used to thinking […]

Everyday Folding Lockblades

Posted on 03 April 2014

Everyday when I come home, I empty out my pockets onto a set of shelves in my office. Every morning before I go out anywhere, I load my pockets back up. Those who know me think I’m a little weird because I almost always have at least two folding lockblade knives on my person if […]

AMK SOL Core Lite

Posted on 02 April 2014

He looks at it; opens the blade; looks at it and smiles at the pure simplicity of it – and is clearly thinking of how great it would have had to been during his years on that island.  Enter the SOL (Survive Outdoors Longer) CORE LITE “knife”.  I put that in quotes because it’s more than just a knife.
