I would take you guys over just the entire collection of all. We have four different pocket knives and also neck knives. Slash this isn’t really a neck knife, but it’s a folding belt knife, so these over here we’ll be getting into in the second half of this article.
But these are the first half of the article, and these are all the pocket clip knives so and as a pocket clip on it is going to be the knives we’re going to be going over and we’re going to be starting off with the lowest valued knives. Over here and in this first rope here is all the lower valued knives and then all the higher valued knives are on this upper row here. So that’s how we’re going to be taking a look at, and hopefully you guys enjoy, taking a look at all of these awesome knives and you guys can get some ideas to add to your knife collection and we’re going to be giving also a commentary of what We think about each of these knives, both of us because, like I said this is our joint collection, even though I technically got everything but technically it is also her collection, as well as mine, anyways, guys, don’t forget to comment like share and subscribe for more this Alaskan awesomeness so anyways guys I’ve got cuffs punch myself to fit into this hole.
I kind of seen, but we’re going to be starting off with this. This is actually an Ozark Trail and this knife, I’m sure received I did not buy, but I know that people like cutlery lover, have done several articles on these knives and they’re, not actually the worst knives out there, especially for being under three dollars. They work pretty. Well and their overall okay knives, but it actually is in my collection, it’s just one of those knives.
That’s often forgotten in the collection, because it’s like I have this and then I have a whole bunch of really expensive knives. So it’s kind of like, and do I really want to carry this? No, because I have like some awesome knives that I would rather carry and take up pocket space cuz. I only have so much pocket space I can afford to use. So generally, they end up with high rent knives, but overall it’s a good knife.
It’s a really good knife for beginners and people who just kind of want to get a knife a knife. This is definitely not a bad one. It has an adequate amount of grip for people who aren’t knife nuts. They won’t really know that you know tip down, carries kind of lame and not really liked in this industry, but the blade centering on this is actually really good and the overall function so long as you don’t use the flip or the flippers really anemic.
If you use the thumb studs, it fires right, improper, but overall, I like it as a good beginner knife. What are your thoughts? My thoughts is that I, like that, it’s lightweight he is right about the flippers like, as you can see it’s just the flipper itself is clumsy. You got ta flick it, but the thumb studs do pretty good, but anyways. I feel like this would be a really good knife for just a younger kid or a low-budget person who just needed a decent knife and, as he said, it’s very cost efficient.
I really don’t know much about this knife, as I was only introduced to it like the other day but like he said he doesn’t carry it much, but I mean I think, for the most part of year she carry them, they’re, really good user knives and what I like about them too, is they’re really great knives to take. If you have a high probability or if you’re one of those people that likes an episode likes but ends up, losing a lot of knives is also a great knife for you, because it’s one of those knives that, if you lose it you’re only out like $ 2.
97, so it’s really cheap and easily replaceable, but that is the Ozark Trail. This is, I forget what this is my thing: they called it like. Those are Trail, flipper knife, something like that and it’s just a very basic name, early generic, but nothing too special anyways. I don’t really have anything in like the twenty dollar region, except this more eldress, that’s about the only twenty dollar knife.
I have the only thing that I really like the next cheapest step up is actually this Boger Kalashnikov and this things around like 50 bucks. I think they are around anywhere from 40 to 50 bucks, depending on which type you get there’s what they make a whole bunch of these different things, but this is a full size over Kalashnikov course. This isn’t Auto and overall I have not had this knife for a super long time, but I’ve really been curious about the kalashnikovs for quite some time and for the most part I like and putting it up against the afk which I’ll get to in a little Bit but anyways, so you know putting it up against the afk as far as fire speed goes they’re, both very hard firing, really nice, not as as far as auto action goes.
Of course, these are both afk and this one are both autos so check with legalities. Before going and purchasing an auto but for the most part, they’re really good knives and this Kalashnikov is pretty good granted. It is an us 8 steel. So I’ll say it’s not the worst thing in the world, but it could be better but yeah for the most part. If this, if I got this knife, I actually got it in a trade, but if I were to buy it, I definitely would not be disappointed.
My thoughts were surprised for such a compared to the afk such a low-end knife, how fast and how hard it actually did fire we put them up against each other this morning and we’re firing them just to see. You know which one came out: first, which and fired the hardest and they’re actually pretty evenly matched so for people. Looking for a low-end, lower, lower end automatic knife. This is actually pretty decent.
I noticed right away when he pulled it out of the box yesterday that it was definitely cheaper. It’s like like the handle grips and everything are not like not like as high-end or as nice. It’s like something on a Spyderco or a bench made ecology, but – and I mean even the steel. If you look at the steel, I mean it’s a little lackluster and it’s it is an Aussie. So it’s under the best in that retention plan overall, the fit and finish I mean it’s definitely a $ 50 knife and it’s a $ 50 on a knife.
So what I mean by that is, when you get an automatic knife, there has to be more to this than in a little flipper like this, there’s actually Springs and the locking mechanism is more complicated. The only other thing I’m kind of slightly concerned about is this pocket clip and because I like it, except for the fact that the metal is like really really flimsy and kind of bendy. I wonder if maybe over time it might Bend out real easily.
But I mean he’s if it bends out easily that it might be easy to fix, but that’s just the only concern I really have, but I guess only times to tell me for me personally I mean I don’t think the retention. Having a lot of experience. I don’t think the retention too bad, I will say as far as bending goes, it could definitely Bend because of its lane. This weakest point is like right up here. This is a very long clip.
If you see even this, Reata has a pretty long clip, but it’s not quite as long as this broker clash d’etat, so it could technically bend, but only time will tell on that anyways. It is a pretty solid knife, but I do like it for me. My pregame expectations before I got the knife were handled it at all. I was expecting to be cheaper than it actually was. I was expecting the firing to not be as good as it is, but this thing actually kicks out pretty good.
So our next knife here is the little tiny spider code dragonfly, and this is a pretty awesome knife for her. I actually really liked the dragonfly for years and years and years and years and years, but now that we actually have one. I have to say I’m glad she likes it, because I really don’t enjoy this knife as much as I thought I would it’s the reason. Why is it’s just too small for me really, I like to have a knife.
That’s kind of like this bench made 5d6 that I mean this for me, is about as small as I’ll go. You can see. I still have just a little bit of room hanging off, whereas with this dragonfly this is it like you’re choked up – and I mean I’m just suffocating the blade – and it’s really small, it’s great for fine, delicate tasks and stuff like that. But I really don’t like the dragonfly, I mean it’s a good quality knife, but for me it just doesn’t fit the bell, so I’m glad that she really enjoyed it because I actually do not like the dragon finds much as you can see.
It doesn’t really give me that issue as much I mean I can hold it back here. If I want – or I can hold it up here on the chipping, the Chim thing. If I want – and you know, I’ve really enjoyed this little knife – it’s it like. You said it’s really good for delicate work. It’s really good. It’s really really sharp. I was surprised for such a little knife. How sharp it is. It’s wicked, sharp, great it slicing and it is really great a slicing, very clean slicing.
I often carry one other all-purpose knife with this knife. This is just for smaller things. I wouldn’t want to use it for bigger, all-purpose tasks, but for a little tiny, itty-bitty things I always go to the Dragonfly and I’m really pleased with it. It was probably the best Christmas gift I’ve ever had they also. I also like that, it’s so lightweight, but it’s also like for being lightweight and so small.
It’s also really sturdy, there’s absolutely no play and whatsoever, and it is I mean it’s lightweight, because it’s small, but I mean you can tell it’s it’s good quality because it has a little bit of heft to it and I’m also really pleased with the pocket clip. I haven’t had any issues with the pocket clip at all yeah, that’s good, why your pocket clips from Spyder go! So do I – and I will say I will give it some credit to for being so small, this bi-directional patterning patterning that they have on these and Endura delica.
All those is a really great pattern. It’s really grippy so now onto the Centofanti by Spyderco, and this is another one, that’s newer for me, and this is another knife that I’ve kind of looked at for a long time and thought about getting. But honestly, this little Spyderco logo. Here is what honestly drove me away from this knife for a really long time, so I thought it was gaudy and it was really stupid.
I was like why Spyderco why I mean I would actually like the lines of this handle just fine if they would remove this Spyderco logo, but either way. Once again, this is another knife I got in trade, so I’m not complaining. I I definitely had the option to get this knife. This is one that I chose for sure and I do, for the most part, really enjoy it oops, but for the most part I actually really like it.
It’s a very, very lightweight knife, and it has a just about as thin blade stock as the Dragonfly. So what that leads to is a really really thin slice iikind of knife, and it does a really good job. Of course, it uses the same vg-10 as made in sake City, Japan, just like the dragonfly in the Endura and the matriarch and all those knives. So it’s really nice quality, even though it does not have screws in it.
Unlike these other two knives here, it has just fine lockup and everything really does not need to be tuned. So sometimes people freak out when there’s not you know screws in their knives like this or like this. People want screws, so they can take it apart. But for the most part realistically, we’re not really taking these knives apart. So I’m not that concerned about the pin together construction as some people might be, but for the most part this is definitely more of an elegant knife.
You can see that this is basically the inter handles, so this is basically an enduro looks like the most part, so it looks more like a user type of knife. This is more of like your high-end kind of or not as a high-end, but there’s more of your elegant knife or if you want a gentleman’s carry this would definitely fit that role and I think you’re really capable knife. That’s thin slice II. It could even go into a little bit of defensive, because this tip here does have a non destroy sharpened, but definitely false edge or kind of swedge on it that definitely helps penetration.
We only got this knife day before yesterday. I think it’s fairly new. I haven’t really gotten a lot of experience with it, but I do look forward to using it more in the future. I’m liking the chipping here right here. You know I mean there’s not a whole lot of grip on the handle like there is on these, but it’s not horribly bad. I mean it fits pretty comfortable, but it’s like I’m glad. I have this.
You know but anyways. I really liked how it looked when I first saw it us like it’s very elegant. It’s very gentle man, although the funny part is for pound for pound. This is almost as heavy, if not heavier than this, which I find kind of flares, but this is definitely just an elegant, thin knife and honestly, I don’t mind the Spyderco. Maybe it’s because I’m a girl – and I don’t care if it looks gaudy, because it really does not look that it doesn’t.
Look that bad. It just looks like in comparison to this and or a handle and like I like this kind of low profile. It’s not really a guy’s name. I got you a ton of that. It’s just like shiny silver. Looking and you know, but anyway, I like this knife and I thought it was cool to add another Spyderco to the collection and, if you solved probably, but you haven’t over here – someone’s close fighters, ironically also in arachnophobia in real life.
But seriously, though, this is not a really, this is not a bad knife and I wouldn’t mind carrying it. I’m going to carry it more. Like I mentioned with the Dragonfly, I like to have another all-purpose knife on hand, and I might try this for a while and see how it goes and I’ll keep you guys updated, but I’m pretty excited about using definitely reviews to come on all of these knives. That have not been reviewed.
None of these knifes here have been reviewed reviews to come on all of these – probably not this one, but now that one’s been reviewed and reira viewed and featured over well, I guess not a lot of overviews, never really any reviews, but anyways now to the Spyderco Matriarch and this matriarch to with wave feature, of course, lots of wetness on this thing, but anywho. So this is the matriarch, and this there’s not a whole lot to talk about.
This is really more of a defensive option than it is a knife, but really ashley is more to Santa cuz. I have not really carried this thing or messed around with it too much because really been her light. I carry it constantly and he hardly gets any time in edgewise because well, that’s because that’s really you need it more than me, because I can’t gotten some more, but not not recently, all maybe a little bit but not in days to come.
Anyways guys. I really am pleased with the matriarch, like I’ve said multiple times before and like he just touched on now. I do not use this for any all-purpose work. This is strictly for defense, but I’m really glad I have it. I’m continually impressed with the different ways I found. I can carry it the different ways. I can find activate the wave feature and snap it out really quick and bring up to slash and everything.
It’s like it’s just a one-time deal kind of knife. It’s like that! Commercial – and I don’t remember what company it is, but it’s like we hope you never need you, but we’re there. If you do, you know this is that kind of a knife, but I just am continually impressed with just how beautiful and savage it is, but also how effective it is, and I on one hand, I’m kind of curious to test it out. But, on the other hand, I really don’t want to go that route anyways guys.
That’s really all I can say about the matriarch, because it’s holding up like a champ and I’m really really pleased to have it. It’s a real, really great knife. It has a lot of the same awesome ergonomic features that sound like the dragonfly house, with the bi-directional patterning patterning and overall it will not slip onto your grip. I don’t that’s a really nice thing. That’s a good thing so now on to possibly one of my most loved knives on the table, or at least it was just kind of being replaced a little bit, but this is the benchmade 56 and this has been a really daily workhorse.
For me. For many years it’s only recently kind of been just a little phased out. Obviously we have a huge rotation here, so we we try and rotate everything in, but the most parts not getting as much pocket time, but it’s a really great awesome, just small folder. Once again, this is about as small as I like to go, but when I want a small folder, that’s super capable, because the blade length or the blade to handle ratio is really good.
On this knife. Benchmade took advantage of having a lot of blade to handle on this, and so that makes it a really small knife. We had a really really capable knife and not saying that I just love every time I use this knife. It feels like it’s actually a larger knife than it really is because the capabilities of the blade, the way it penetrates into things and just slices open boxes and all that awesome stuff.
I do want to note that I have modded it, of course, to have a deep, carry clip and I got another one, because this knife has a deep carry clip, and now this one has to have a deep carry clip, because I swear the deep carry clips. If you guys don’t already know they’re like a necessity on all bench maids, so if you want definitely ask benchmade because they’ll hook you up with them, but that is the only thing I’ve done.
It’s really. I love that deep character because it buries the knife and composite. I lovingly nicknamed this knife, the survival kit nice, because when I was first introduced to it, he had it in either one survival kit or another anyways. I’ve used it a little tiny bit, not a whole lot, but I’m pretty pleased with it. I mean I like the dragonfly a little bit better, but it’s a pretty good knife. I like benchmade as well.
I do recommend the deep carry clip a good all-purpose. It really is it’s. It’s coral, that’s all! I got to say about that. Ok, so now I’m moving on to the full size grip. This is actually my first bench made in my oldest bench made and I really love this thing. This is the zero fighter that 0:50. This is the 550 by benchmade and its really awesome knife. Of course, this one is just rock no lanyard for just a different style of carry.
It doesn’t really have it has a pocket clip, but it’s not on this knife, but this one. I don’t carry to it too much anymore, because it’s just a real beat-up Knight this one and the one I’m about to show are like my beater knives are kind higher-end beater knives. So I take it out for what you will, but these are knives that see a lot of use and they’re moderately expensive both of these that one more expensive than this one, but they’re really just good all-around workhorses.
And if, once again I wanted knife that is reliable and I know I can thump on or I know I can really put it into a serious situation – it’s not going to because that’s kind of like this knife right here. It’s like, I don’t know how much it can take. It’s a nice knife to go for for a beater, but it also may fail on you, whereas these two knives are really solid and I know they’re not going to fail on me so anyways don’t have a whole lot to say um.
This is just a really awesome workhorse. Of course, I got this one when I was new to knives and thought blackened. Serrations were really cool. Now I’ve kind of changed, as you guys can see, with like straight edge straight edge, straight edge straight edge. Even this is a straight edge. Everything tends to be a straight edge nowadays, except a handful of knives. This one, this one and this one are the only serrated ones I believe on this table, but overall, it’s a really great workhorse from what I’ve been told.
It seems like this knife is held up pretty well, because I mean he’s been carrying it for a lot of years. I don’t have really an experience with this knife, except for just messing with it a little bit in the house or whatever, but it reminds me honestly when I saw the black blade in the serrations. It was like an automatic you because I had a Gerber and it was the worst knife I ever had and it was blacked out with the serrations, and I saw this and I’m like ill, no way bro what the heck.
What what is this? What is this dratted, but honestly, benchmade and Gerber back then? I didn’t know the difference which is astronomical. I didn’t know that benchmade is such an amazing brand and that Gerber is just well trashed, so anyways guys. I think I got ta say this is the most unique knife on the table because of its blacked-out blade and serrations, and because of its lanyard and setup a clip and because, if it’s green handle, but it’s it’s a pretty cool knife.
I’ve I’m, like I said: I’ve never really used it, except just playing with it a little bit, but as soon as that gets held up pretty well and, like you said it’s a beater, it’s the true beater with the heater. Possibly this is probably the most beat knife on the table. This one I still really liked, and it’s a pretty awesome knife for those who don’t know this shape. This is obviously a micro tech, SOCOM Elite.
This is an old, it’s very beat-up, it’s very, very beat-up, but it’s a 2006 micro tech, SOCOM Elite, obviously a manual action. They do make some of these in auto, but this is a manual action d2 blade, and this is basically my high-end feeder, because I know this one’s not going to fail. It’s been around forever, like this thing’s been around eleven years now, and it just works really. Well, obviously, serrations on it – and this is a chisel grind blade that has a lot of its coating missing and all of its coating missing on this hikes.
It’s been resharpen a handful of times, as you guys definitely see, but it’s a tanto as well as actually, I think, the only tanto on the table unless you count like this. They kind of say that this is a modified can tell. But aside from that, if you count like this is the only true tanto blade on the table, but it’s a really awesome knife even is in its beat form. The grip on this and ergonomics are still really superb.
It’s an excellent knife for being a liner-lock and yeah. It’s just a really great workhorse knife. Now, the only thing I really don’t like about this knife is just like this one. It is a tip down. Carry I really don’t like tip down carry knives. It’s just. I mean you guys can see the pattern on this table. This is this one. In this one are legitimately the only two tip down carry knives on the table.
So all of my experience and real preference comes from tip up carry, so it kind of feels weird when I first saw this knife. The first thing that popped in my mind was like Matthew. You need to ask the guy how many people have you killed with this thing, because we were, we were supposing all kinds of cool stuff like? Oh, maybe it was an Iraq deployment knife and it very well may have been, but the person we bought it from didn’t, use it much so whoever he got it from probably did what I like the most is little handy-dandy glass breaking carbide tipped glass breaker.
This is a micro tech and micro Tech’s like to have glass breakers on their knives, but both of those are carbide temptin, but we’ll get to this one in a little bit, it’s a little bit of a different life anyways guys. This thing is pretty cool. To look at it, it’s it’s really really beat-up I mean I noticed from the picture and i’m still new to my gear. Even I noticed it’s like holy mackerel. It is missing steel, it has been sharpen and resharpen and research really the age of this thing in its a low production numbered Microtech, so call my lead, keep on to call it ultra tech, but to SOCOM elite manual action from 2006.
I was like this thing’s awesome, even those really beat to hack, I kind of wanted a high-end beat to hack night and make no mistake some of you guys out there who are like, oh, that thing’s, probably worth like $ 0. This thing is still worth quite a bit because micro, tech, so calm elites are average around three to four hundred dollars, something this old is like. I mean this was no longer foreigner dodging so beat up, but these things are still very expensive names.
I think before before we wrap this up. The only other thing I don’t like about this thing. Besides the tip up carry is the locking mechanism. Actually, the liner actually hurts your thumb. If you can coil back, if you do it a lot, it will kind of hurt. Your lock is actually will dig into your thumb a little bit over time that kind of rubs it a little raw other than that so life. You don’t play with it too much, so it doesn’t have a lot of play factor in that way, but other than that – and I will say just a quick final note on this – the the lockup is still perfect, there’s absolutely no up down or left/right claimant.
In that lock system, so that’s a real testament to an 11 year old micro tech. That’s been through hell. Thank you guys, it’s at least been through something either that are really crazy. Abusive night knife beating oh no gone like it’s gone through abuse until micro tech. You guys make some really awesome knives that can take just insane abuse and that’s a line. I lost not known known for being strong, so this one is my now manual brush, so this girl carried this for all summer.
She got it wet inside and these spring. So in case you guys don’t know the barrage, it’s generally a spring assist knife, and so the spring in there got rusted out. So when I took some wd-40 to clean out the pivot and make it better because it was running real slow. If you guys noticed in some of the later articles of this being featured, it was running real, slow and it just was not kicking out because a general benchmade spring assist or auto should kick out like that.
He should kick out with all Martin Stern wants and this thing was anemic, and so I took some WD for you, try and clean it up, make it better get some of the gunk out of there and it actually broke the string broke. So I think I’m going to be returning this one to benchmade for a replacement on that also, here’s the springs are stripped. That’s why it couldn’t open it to clean it off ya, wan na screws, aside, krishna and so anyways for now.
For the moment being this will probably return to being a spring assist, but for now it’s actually I’m you know give fairness. This is a very, very smooth, very, very smooth manual folder, but this is a manual bench made barage. So going back to this knife, I really like it. I didn’t carry it much, oh and now it’s locking up, but that’s the only other issue. That’s the flaw this but anyways. I didn’t really carry this knife a whole lot for too long.
I can get it to deploy again. I didn’t really carry it a whole lot. It was a good knife, but I didn’t really really really love it. The ergonomics are just fine, its overall, a really good utility knife, but I don’t know I just ended up liking. My other knives that I would get in just not really carrying this one. I also after a time really dislike to the spring, assist, because I think the spring it made a harder to put it away.
That is true. I did find that it’s actually easier to handle. Now that’s a manual. This was my high end. Beater, you know anyways, yes, I did especially, maybe that’s why I thought the Gerber was such trash too, and it fell apart easily because I was just really hard on knives. I didn’t really know how to take care of them as well. So I am afraid I kind of screwed this knife up and it’s all my fault, but whatever it’s like I’ve learned my lesson, but it’s still a good utility knife.
It’s not the most. Pretty it’s not the most functional as you can, as you saw. It definitely locks up now, but it will probably when it was a spring assist. It was easier to deploy, but it was harder to put away. I don’t know it just needs, it just needs some a little TLC, but it’s still a really good beater. So I enjoyed carrying it for all the time that I did carry it yeah. I also didn’t like the fact that this screw on this side stripped out and it seems like the blade, is over heat treated, so those didn’t really like it.
What makes you say it was over heat-treated it’s harder than has to actually sharpen it, and I have a handful of 154cm blades on this table like this one, this one, this one, there’s probably there’s another one here, that’s 154cm. I think, but if not else then – and I so I have some like comparisons of sharpening things and this one is substantially harder – the shock that these other ones, I’ve necessarily sharpened.
So if I have sharpened these both of these before and this one’s substantially harder to shards, it’s pretty good though it does, but it is harder to sharpen that is anyways forget stropping. I tried so now on to one of my other really favourite knives and a favorite of most people on this EDC planet is the Spyderco paramilitary 2, and this is an awesome knife. I loved it. I got it, of course, because everyone seemed to be ranting and raving on like it should not try this thing out, and it is a really great Spyderco.
This was my first Spyderco and what really led me to loving spider codes, because it’s just such a well put together knife, I loved the interesting lock. I loved everything about it. The s30v blade holds an edge really well, and overall, it’s just a great night. It’s it does everything you wanted to do how you want it to do. For the most part, I will see the only problem – and this is just a running theme with all spider codes is the tips are just very thin and very delicate.
So you don’t want to do any prying or hard work with the tips, because they will always snap, especially in these powder metal Steel’s, because these powdered metals are really really they’re, really really Steph. They don’t like to bend, but I really love the knife. It’s it’s great knife and it finds its way into my pocket more than other knives, so more than other knives. Actually, honestly, that is true.
I kind of traded up the benchmade ROG and I was going for the cévennes and I carried the spends for a while, but next thing I knew I was carrying the paramilitary 2 and I’m actually really pleased with the primarily military two. I saw the difference immediately between this and the barrage. It was a lot easier to handle for me and it was easier to do everyday tasks with it and cut with even sharpen and strop it and number things I’m going to be running the Centofanti for a while, but I’ll probably end up coming back to this Puppy right here, if he doesn’t want to commandeer it, probably one of my favorite worker knives.
Honestly I’ve grown really attached to it. So you can see I can make my Spyderco, but this is like an exceptional. This is this is the best of all of them. I must say, and I’ve been happy with it – just been a really good knife and I was a little bit against it at first, like I said I don’t like the blacked-out blades, but that’s pure cosmetics. It has nothing to do with the actual awesomeness. This one’s.
Actually pretty unique because at the DLC finish, so the black blade doesn’t just wear off it doesn’t and there’s no serrations, I mean if there have been serrations on it. I would’ve been like you yeah, I’m not going to use it. Just like this poor thing right here, okay, so that’s the p.M. Now on to the Reata event horizon, which is this knife. Now we were discussing another article that this thing’s a little bit hard to deploy when it gets cold, because this thing’s all metal.
But this is the UV aught a event horizon, and this is another pretty new addition. Overall, I really like anyways guys, like I was saying if I were to it’s just not my knife of choice. If I were to go for an automatic I’d, go for this one instead because it’s lighter and it has a cleaner blade, even if it is cheaper, but as you guys as I’m going to demonstrate in a moment these both fire about the same so so anyways Guys, that’s that’s that button locks and everything, but yeah um, I’m just really not I’m just really not um a huge fan of the yeah afk.
But that’s that’s! That’s not that’s just me style. So now on to my personal favorite. This is kind of like a grill knife. For me, too, this was the night that I really really wanted for a very long time and it’s once again all these auto knives they really freak they get frigid. You guys can see that on that first deploy it actually failed to go fully into action. It is sluggish right now, cuz this thing is ice, cold and once again, the grease and oils that go into these autos to make them fire.
So fast are the same things that I’m not killing them in the cold, but this is a micro, tech, ultra tech, and this is a try grip one. I really wanted to try grip because I actually one of those weirdos I’d like to try grip but um, not everyone does apparently, but I really liked this knife and it’s just been a grill knife for me. I really wanted an ultra tech for a very long time and I was able to get one.
I was like awesome, so this is a micro tech, ultratech, tri grip, I’d like to try grab more and it’s no TF as well. So this is also my first OTF. I really want ot F she’s, probably going to try and tell you a story about a avenge made infidel put this thing down because other than there’s just being a really great everyday carry knife. I mean this is one of those knives that it has to be a second kind of cool for you, and I told him I was like I swear if this ends up in your leg, I’m grounding you from that.
Wrapping you in bubble wrap and it’s going to be mine and you’re, never touching it out the front ever again. It’s so far, he’s been very good about not putting it in his leg, going on anyways, that’s the story and it’s a little humiliating, but I think even the best need to fall down a little bit. But I don’t I don’t I’m not a huge fan of the outs of fronts. I mean I think, they’re cool and all, but it’s like they really are not functional enough.
For my taste, I mean besides having a glass breaking and that’s kind of legit. I would really like – and I have to had one of those but the beater but anyways guys. I think it’s cool and I’m glad that he’s really happy with it and I’ll keep you updated. If it suddenly disappears from the face of the earth. It’s because he did something stupid with it, but in fairness, he’s not the only one to have done that the lady at the counter was saying people put them up to their palms, and oh man, anyways guys that stay out the friends.
Don’t worry yeah so now onto another one of my favorite, these top three, no, like it’s probably pretty obvious, but these tops are obviously some of my really really favorites like I love most of these as well, but the next one is the most expensive area spensive. These are all like $ 300 knives buy. This is zt0 552 CF and it’s a big nice. This is actually the largest excluding these knives. This is actually that one too it’s larger than that one.
This is a very big knife, but this is the zt0 52 and carbon fiber and it is an awesome, fantastic flipper. It is just really really smooth flipper, really awesome knife. I really like it. I also one of my things that I wanted was a carbon fiber knife or a knife that had at least a little bit of carbon fiber on it in this one, of course, has a full carbon fiber scale on it, so that makes it really lightweight, but It also has that carbon fiber touch that I really like, because personally I really like carbon fiber, and so my hands are getting so close.
I can’t really do in like so anyways. This is a really awesome. Knife has a full titanium and then a full carbon fiber handle scales on it and, of course, once again s35vn on the blade and just a really really big knife. It’s like tactical, awesome, really love this thing. I’ve been carrying, it haven’t, had a super long time, but it’s another night. I’ve been carrying pretty regularly pretty religiously.
This is actually our newest knife and I thought it was cool I actually when when he was able to get us like yeah, let’s do it. So you guys know we kind of like carbon fiber. I if I were to carry a big knife, because it is so it’s it’s kind of lightweight it’s not as chunky as like the Reata or the egg. I mean for a being a such a huge knife. It is actually light weight and it’s slender. So if I were to carry a bigger knife, it would probably be this one and I actually I’m really impressed with this knife.
I mean it’s what I thought it was beautiful over the pictures. I saw it’s even better in person. I am really excited to get more experience with this knife, and I know he is too as like. It is brand spanking new. We just did we just get it in yesterday yesterday, so brand-new, but anyways guys. This is. This. Is a nice little knife, I’m really excited to get more accustomed to it, and I know he is too and before you guys asked it’s not actually back cold outside.
It’s just we’ve been out here for quite a while filming so our hands, one of them handling these knives. Plus we’ve been doing this for 30 plus minutes, and these are oddities our metal or metal. So it is getting cold. So we’re going to wrap this up here pretty soon now to the classic, really expensive high-end knife, and that is the Chris Reeve knife Sebenza large, the bends at 21. This is, of course, full titanium, just kind of like this one and yeah.
It’s been a really great night. This is one of the knives I’ve had for a very very long time. I think around three years now and overall for the past three years, it’s been a fantastic performer. The only thing – and I have to talk to Chris Reeves about this – that I don’t like is the titanium tip clip bent out a little bit. So it’s retention is a little bit lost and I don’t really know do it’s a titanium clip.
I know what these steel ones you just like, put them in a vise and you bend them back. I don’t necessarily wan na do that to this one cuz, I don’t know how that won’t. Work might do the same thing but anyways. This is a really awesome night, I’m putting it down because it’s once again very cold, just like all these others, and just a really great knife, though, be careful cuz. I know the only thing that was what I was going to say.
The only thing I dislike about this is that the frame lock does not have an overt stop, which means it could be bent out and extended. That would not be good while they’re. In that I mean I haven’t carried it a whole lot, but I carried it a little bit and I really like it. I, like the blade, shape I like how it cuts it’s it’s hefty, I’m not going to deny it, but it’s it’s not that it’s not as have you this one.
I also think it’s funny it’s idaho made, which is where I just was, but this is a a really good knife and from what I know it’s it’s pretty decent. So who do you think I’m just kidding? It’s actually awesome. It’s not! Actually. You do really love that knife quite a bit now once again, because it’s such an older knife. For me, I have a lot of experience so when it comes to these knives – and I don’t have as much experience on a little bit more eager to choose these kinds of knives over that one, because I’ve had that one for years and years I want to Put some more use on these other knives anyways guys hold on hold on when I first met met, met Matthew.
He had this Night Man, so I kind of like this one, the best, maybe out of all of these, because when I see this knife I just remember when we first met, he was showing off all his knives and I was starting to really get out of The ignorant of knives – and you can shrug it off, but it’s important to me anyways. This is a pretty awesome knife and I think we’re going to do the buck in the next article yeah, because we need to wrap this up because it’s been running long.
We’re going to be doing a part two to this, explaining going over the folding sheath knife and then all the net knives, so those are not the pocket knives per se, so anyways guys. This is part 1 of this vlog collection article, but hope you guys have enjoyed it and as always, guys, god bless and we’re out.
Knives and daggers are awesome! Plain and simple, right? Let me say, I enjoy my dagger collection with a little music playing in the background.
