Salvaging Surplus Knives

Posted on 23 April 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.

I think that the circumstances weigh greatly on that decision and would rather have it and not need it, rather than need it but not have it.

Bones-Small Knife from Buck Knives

Posted on 21 April 2014

When I took the Bones out of the package I immediately commented on how tiny it was. I then heard a familiar voice on my left say something you never want to hear when you’re thinking about the coefficient of coolness for a new piece of kit. It was my wife saying, “Oh, that’s cute.”

Swiss Army Soft Grip Tinker

Posted on 18 April 2014

This IS a good pocket knife that offers far more than your typical “nail cleaning” pocket knife. Take a look at that list of tools again and realize how much more you can do.

Posted on 18 April 2014

A great many of the most skilled warriors I know carry fixed blade knives with blade less than four inches long. That’s the category the Decima knife, from Ontario Knife Company, falls into.

Spyderco Manix 2 Knife Review

The Manix 2 has a three-inch plain cutting edge on a blade that is 3.37” overall and does not have any option for a partially- or all-serrated edge. Closed the knife measures 4.66” and locked open it’s just over 8”.
