BLACKHAWK!’s Razorback TROCAR

Posted on 23 July 2014

Originally designed by Massad Ayoob for Masters of Defense knives back in the late ’90s, the Razorback fixed blade was meant to be the perfect blend of utility mixed with close-quarters emergency-use combat effectiveness (it cut good up close).

Water Work (& Play) Knives

Posted on 23 July 2014

This week we’re going to take a look at a collection of different knives. An overview, if you will, of knives that either are made specifically for work in or around water, OR knives that will fit the bill and not suffer too greatly from the environment while getting the job done.

SOG Knives Trident Elite Folder

Posted on 22 July 2014

After a week in the water and a week of drying without any maintenance, oiling, etc. the knife didn’t show any signs of corrosion or rusting that I could find. Happy with that, I went about collecting my assortment of stuff to be cut… if the knife would.

The Kahr/Spyderco Delica4

Posted on 21 July 2014

The Kahr/Delica4 was created by self-defense authority Michael Janich, one of the most liked and respected knife use authorities in the world. And he’s been liked and respected for decades now, in contrast to the new kids on the block that pop up and disappear every year. It’s prudent to think that he might know something.

The Classic KA-BAR

Posted on 18 July 2014

One knife design that has been with us for decades is the Classic KA-BAR, also well known as the USMC Combat Knife. From what my oldest son (a Marine) tells me, the name was actually originally an acronym standing for: Knife Accessory – Browning Automatic Rifle.

All Purpose Knives

Posted on 18 July 2014

For the purposes of this article I picked out ten different knives from seven different manufacturers (there are two KA-BARs and three SOGs). Each knife was designed either for combat or for survival and we’ll discuss the characteristics that may make them more suited for one than the other. For now, let’s identify the knives used for this discussion.

Salvaging Surplus Knives

Posted on 18 July 2014

That article spawned a conversation about knives and how old they had to be before you replaced them. I didn’t realize that AGE determined service life (I guess it does in we humans). So, I set about finding an old beat up surplus knife or bayonet that I could salvage for current use. My son showed up at home with an ugly worn and abused M3 Trench Knife. It was the perfect piece to work with. You should see it now.

The Gerber Bullrush Multi-Tool

Posted on 18 July 2014

Gerber’s Bullrush is a recent release that is basic, comfortable and relatively compact. It has what you need and not a bunch of stuff that you probably don’t.

Posted on 17 July 2014

All in all this knife is a good specimen of what I’ve come to expect from Blackhawk products. It looks good, carries well and performs as required.
