Fallkniven A1 Review

Today, I’m going to be reviewing the Fallkniven A1. I don’t normally review stainless steel fixed blade knives, because I was a die-hard high carbon steel guy. Don’t get me wrong – I still love high carbon steel, but this knife is a wonderfully crafted and insanely strong cutting tool that would be right at home in a bushcraft kit.

The A1 was originally designed for Military purposes, but it’s a great knife for those of us who want more corrosion resistance, higher edge retention, better wet weather performance, and less maintenance. Let’s get in to it and I’ll break it down for you. Continue reading

Best Backpacking Knife 2017

One of the questions that I get asked over and over again is; “what’s a best backpacking knife?” My typical answer is an obvious but often frustrating one, “it depends.” I’m not trying to be a jerk about it, but asking what knife is good for backpacking or hiking doesn’t exactly allow for a one size fits all response. Putting aside everyone’s personal knife preferences for just a minute, there’s still the important question of what you intend to use the knife for when in the back country.

Knives Made in Finland

If you’ve ever owned a Rapala filet knife (made by Marttiini Knives), then you can recognize the basic shape and handle design of a traditional Finnish puukko. But, puukkos must be handled and used to be truly appreciated.

Knives made in Finland (or, puukko) have a very distinct look and feel that is difficult to portray in words. Generally, these knives are lightweight yet durable made with traditional material like curly birch or reindeer bone handles sporting a unique, recognizable shape.

Best Hunting Knife 2017

Owning the best hunting knife on the market would be a wise move for every serious or recreational hunter. If you were ever in a situation that required you to have a good knife on hand, would you have come prepared? What if that particular situation had something to do with cleaning a fish, cutting some rope, or dressing a deer? Would you happen to have a blade on hand?

Knives for hunting, for big game, for small game, for deer hunting all differ from each other because of the difference in the features needed in a knife for carrying out these different tasks.

Buck TOPS CSAR-T Review

I’ll admit it, the Buck TOPS CSAR-T (Combat Search and Rescue Tool) is not the first knife you think of when considering the best bushcraft knife. However, given its high utility, I’ve reviewed it here for your consideration.

Buck has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best knife makers in the world, and the Buck TOPS CSAR-T is a worthy addition to that legacy. The Buck TOPS CSAR-T might look small, but it packs a big punch. It was designed to give police and military personnel a trusted, secondary tool for survival in tough situations, but it’s an excellent addition to anyone’s personal tool supply as well.

From the tip of the Tanto blade to lanyard hole at the end of the handle, this knife is built for use.

Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Review

There are essentially three versions of the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate:  the Ultimate (has serrations), the Ultimate Fine Edge, and the Ultimate Pro (fine edge, full tang).  You’ll see pics of all three in here, but they are different knives with significant updates with the Pro version including full tang construction and a reinforced (pinned and welded) pommel, plus differences in styling and sheath design.  The original Ultimate runs approximately $35-$40 while the Pro usually costs around $75.   Don’t get confused — they all look very similar.

The easiest way to spot the Pro is to look for the choil.

Gerber is a renowned international knife maker, known for manufacturing some of the most durable blades on the market. The Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate was designed with the survivalist’s approval and is the highest-end model in the company’s Bear Grylls Survival Series. From pommel to blade tip, this knife is made with one thing in mind – survival. Of course, it also makes an excellent all around camp knife too.
