I have a couple on pre-order from Survive Knives, so if you are desperate for some more fixed blades, take a look. ( www.surviveknives.com )
I need some more fixed blades! I'm still looking to get a Case with Buffalo Horn.
There are a good many choices out there right now, some great prices too. Looking for something to o a particular chore or just feelin the need for a new one?
Well looking at some fixed blades, moderate pricing..man there are choices and some sell outs!
The June issue of Knives Illustrated which will be out on the stands this coming Wednesday, will have an article about TOPS Knives being evaluated by Navy Seal Eddie. The Article is entitled: SEAL of Approval.
(I am posting this within other groups.)
Name the Top 5 Fixed Blade Knives sold by CRKT?
Agreed, Steve. I only got to work with the knives on magazine reload or target checks so did only limited batoning. Since I was concentrating on small stuff - dead branches of downed trees about an inch thick, I used the knives like a hatchet. I noticed that the Cold Steel Trailmaster with the convex edge didn't like batoning the small stuff - bounced out of the "V" made by the first couple blows in hatchet mode. The Sandbox Bowie, being flat ground with a narrow taper "stuck" a bit better allowing the baton to work. Couldn't devote enough time for a thorough test this weekend.
Well for sure you need a sturdy blade to do any "batoning". I have seen too many knives just crinkle at trying to go through wood. But if the knife can stand someone banging on it to split wood, it usually means it is a pretty good user for camping and walks through the woods.
Thanks for the kind words about my dad's hunting knife. Was away for the weekend doing some target shooting with the regular crew up in Potter Co., PA - and did a little "woods" testing of A.G. Russell's Sandbox Bowie and Cold Steel's San Mai III Trailmaster. Not a review here, but both worked well on the limited "hacking" test. I will say here that although the Kraton handle (Cold Steel) felt good in the hand, I think you need a glove to hack enough small dead trees or branches (1" diam.) for kindling for a campfire.
@Phil that collection you have there of fixed blades,as I said, just fantastic. I too hope to do more with them. I have a few custom, but no doubt will add more in the furure.
