My One Bushcraft Knife… CRK Pacific Review

So now I’m going to do my review and overall thoughts about this knife, so, let’s jump into it.

This is a pretty big claim to say I’m only using this knife, I will say the primary reason I am choosing to go that way or why I’m not running a whole bunch of different other knives from bush crafting or survival practice is because I truly want To get good with one knife – and my thing is: I’ve – just had it up to here off the screen with just having a whole bunch of different survival, knives that I’m never using and there’s a whole bunch of excellent once it certainly doesn’t have to be the One for you, but this is the one that I chose, and there are a few other reasons aside from me, just being fed up with the knife industry on why I chose this one.

So now, let’s get into those so starting off with this knife. One of the primary reasons why I was attracted to this knife and my original thoughts for getting this knife was that I wanted to work more on island survival being close to water and working with the water, more hand in hand and imma be rolling in pictures Showing you guys what I’m talking about, and so when I sat down and thought about what knife I need a for working so close to the water.

I wanted a knife that had a really good stainless steel. So it’s not only a good steel generally all around, but it’s also very rust resistant. This is a knife that I could get wet and not really fear the steel rusting, and so that is the primary reason. The s35vn is what led me to this knife next, to that, it’s also the world nests of this knife. When I did choose my one and only survival knife, I wanted to make sure, and it was a knife that was not going to break.

I wasn’t going to give me issues as far as the thinness of the blade, so that was my next consideration or thought really was that one of saying robust now this knife is close to 1/4 inch thick and definitely fits the criteria of being robust. So, lastly, I wanted a knife that also had great ergonomics, because the last thing I will say if your are choosing and one knife to be your bushcraft knife going forward, it does need to feel comfortable in the hand and it needs to feel natural and that It really is this knife, and I have to say as far as the ergonomics go, it not only feels natural, but the way this micarta was done.

It was not only left for broth, but it was also left textured. So there’s a whole bunch of essentially little protrusions in the scale that grip it to your skin, not in an uncomfortable way, but in a really positive way. So the night feels very comfortable in hand, but it also walks up into your hand very well and I’ve always enjoyed since day one I’ve enjoyed the hell out of these grips, and I really do love the grips on this thing, they’re absolute when for me, so Basically, those were my three qualifications: it had to be waterproof or very water resistant and a rust resistant and very keen was working in water environments.

It had to be robust and it still had to be very comfortable, and so that’s what landed me on the Chris Reeve knives specific and also I have had in the past emailing. Some of you guys know you know I’ve had Sebenza before so this isn’t my first Chris Reeves knife knife and I’ve always been very impressed with the quality and with the warranty on these knives. It’s just a really great brand. It came with a few issues of you know these different these different, these different guards kind of got in the way, but overall I was still able to find it a very easy time choking up on the knife, doing more fine tasks also due to the heavy Haft of this knife because, like I said it is a reasonably thick knife, it also did chopping very well, and I’ve always been impressed with the ability of this knife to just go right through material and just clean cleanly swipe right through material.

I think another thing that helps with that is the fact that this is a very finely ground edge and you guys can see it has a nice long grind to it and then a great battle. It’s very polished edge. It is extremely sharp, so it’s weight and it’s grind in bevel have helped it sail through materials like nobody’s business. It’s also not to mention a very good knife for beat awning, because it has been very great in the water.

Obviously, this this gun coat in my son. I do find interesting that this knife doesn’t have just some. You know like spray-paint coat. It does have a gun coat on it. I believe the gun coat is similar to a seracote. It has been extremely durable. There’s only a few places where the coating has minorly loved off, primarily on this, where the grind starts, and that is not too uncommon to see on. Basically, any knife you put Todd with because that’s where the most friction is put on when you put on with a knife, so it’s not to be unexpected, but the coating is very durable.

The rust resistance, as I seen it and listen. I have gotten this knife wet and I’ve actually crossed rivers with this knife and like in its sheath on my hip, and you know, leave like waters come up into the sheath. You know Gea here, and so the knife has definitely got wet in the sheath. Is the knife that I’ve unapologetically lat get very dirty, very wet and giving it a lot of opportunity to get all nasty and ugly and rusty, but the s35vn has performed very well.

The attention to is to be expected with CPM s35vn or really good. It’s definitely leaving really nothing because, like I was saying the performance of this knife in forced environments, which I certainly have taken it into the forest, a bushcraft is pretty much on par with something like a fall can even a one like. I said, though, the primary reason why I stress this as an island survival knife or as a water survival knife or you know, one that’s going to be in the water – is because the CPM s35vn, unlike vg-10 or the vg-10 laminate, that Faulkner even uses this definitely Output for so vastly before we finish up the review, I also will say the on the sheath I’ll give some notes on it.

I do really love this sheet. It is a very modular sheath. As that you guys have seen in the past. I easily connect my own condor, I pouch to this right up here, but this is a very modular pouch. It has Mali attachment running up the front. It has some webbing attachment areas in the back. The belt loop is really nice. I will say it has a double velcro, so essentially you set your belt in here, and this conforms to your belt.

So if you’re running an inch wide belt, this will walk around that belt. If you’re running an inch and a half to inch about whatever the this will conform to that, and actually we walk your belt in place, which is really nice because on other sheets that don’t have a similar system, I kind of get a sloppy sheath that when It’s on your side or attached to your belt. This sheath will kind of wobble like this, whereas with this and it closes around your belt, it locks your belt in so there’s no wobble, and then you get an extra secure meant like that, and it makes for a really tight securing belt.

So I do like that, and it does come with some extra cordage, of course, is a paracord, but I’ve just left it on here, because it came with it in whatever other than that. It does have a really nice and very secure button closure and just like on some other high-end knives. I have reviewed in the past, primarily, I think, actually just the pull force. Prepper one also have this, but the interior of the sheath or in here isn’t just plastic that rattles and bangs and makes all kinds of noise.

It does actually have a layer of felt in there to keep the knife quiet and keep it from just banging around. In there and being an obnoxious plastic piece of crap, so the sheath places the button fits very tightly. You can see that there is no play in this of a lot of Cheaper sheaths. You’ll see you know, the knife will come out and sometimes even expose a bit of the blade with this there’s. Absolutely none of that this is the most the knife gives and snap is really strong.

This doesn’t just pop on or off. It takes a really purposeful, pull and depend on it’s also very purposeful. So really do like this sheath, it’s actually one of the best stock, sheaths I’ve ever gone and just out of box it’s one of those sheaths that, aside from throwing on a thigh strap, I didn’t want to do absolutely anything to this sheath. I really suggested you guys take a look at this knife because it is definitely interesting and it’s one of the more uncommon choices out there, but I think, is really capable, especially for the money.

It’s a nice survival knife. I really have no complaints about it. Anyways guys, that’s all for now, god bless and come 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.

The Different Roles of Production

The scriptwriter is while in charge of writing the scripts. This includes things like writing down the town’s lines, the directions and the camera angles. You want to use the director is a person in charge for directing their crew. Their job is to visualize how the article plays out and then guide the actors and crews to fulfill that vision.

The producer is usually the person who oversees the production of the article. The producer is usually on a higher level than the director lighting. Their job is to set up the lights correctly and make sure the talent is well lit, as well as the background. The articlegraphers are in charge of setting up the camera in the right angle. Focusing the shot and making sure it looks good talent is what you called a person who is starring in the article like me, right now we’re in charge of presenting our lines to you, the viewers, the person in charge of audio, is responsible for monitoring the sound Levels of the talent by making sure there’s a go too low or too high.

Let’s go copies in right now. The editor is a person who’s in charge of compiling all the footage and putting it together into one article. So those are just some of the roles in filmmaking, as well as what they do, but remember each role isn’t limited to just one person you can assign the same role at the same time to multiple people or just one person. If you prefer, we hope you enjoyed this article and we’ll see you next time.

My TOP 5 Neck Knives For Bushcraft

Let’s get started really saying this list is in no specific order than price point and to give you guys, quick rundown of these dives in case you’re, unfamiliar with any of them. This is, of course, the more a companion visiting Morra eldress. This is the S III. This is the LT right Camp muck, and this is the BRK bushcrafter, and these are my top five and I’m going to get into why I these five made it onto this list, probably know or have seen from this blog.

I have a lot of neck knives and I’ve used a lot of neck knives and so who really does take quite a special knife to actually make it onto this list, because I have many to choose from, but the more companion. The reason why this is one of the first on my list is because this was actually the first neck knife. I ever ran this one specifically in the first neck knife I ever ran alongside the Mora companion.

These were the first third, more companion, slash clipper were the first two neck knives for me to ever run and I ran them for around a year and a half, and I really liked them as far as performance goes. They are very good. The price point is incredibly hard to beat on them. Overall, this knife just was such an impressive knife and, like I was saying you know, I ran it for a long time, so I really understand how to use this knife and I think, for a good starting neck knife.

This one is extremely hard to beat. I really think the only thing that could really beat this as a starter. Neck knife is its newer brother, the L dress and the L dress. Once I got it, I was kind of one of the last people as far as youtuber viewers to go to actually get one, but now that I’ve got it, it is fastly becoming one of my favorite neck knives. Ever I mean really, as I see the more L dress, it’s like a every day man’s se as Azula.

You know it has a large handle, obviously for these mittens, it’s a little bit hard to show, but it actually can fit pretty well, even with very large men, unlike I have here today, but overall, as far as being a very small night list set around the Size of an ST masuleh, this knife is really really good and once again it keeps that characteristic property of more knives, and that is a very good value and a reasonably low.

When I was saying, I really love the moral dress and it is, in my opinion, really the only Mora that could really beat the companion as far as being a very compact, very lightweight, but still quite strong neck knife and one of the largest upgrades I see With Elle dress is not only that is a lighter weight than the companion, but they’ve actually sharpened the spine from factory on the L dress. So it actually throws me crazy, so I really have been in super impressed by it.

I think any of you guys have readed my a lot of my survival kit. Articles you’ll know that the L dress is pretty much the knife of choice for me, and it is that for that reason that it’s extremely small, extremely light yet extremely capable. So, though that is the companion’ /l dress, I really do love the companion once again, if you’re getting in neck knives – and you really want to get a good knife knife to begin with, you know: oftentimes a lot of neck knives are more expensive.

Like these. All three of these are over $ 100, so Neth knives can be more expensive thing to get into, but if you want really affordable ones, definitely turn to Mora. So number three is the S III. Ironically, that is not tying that way. It’s just how it worked out, it’s just a coincidence, but I really love the S III. This is actually one of my favorites of this entire batch just for the fact that I think it’s really good for bushcraft, but it’s also really good defensive, Neff knife and the reason why – and I’ve talked about this – I believe in the review – is because it’s an Ultra ultra slim night, I mean yes see the thickness on this I mean this is the thinnest as far as overall thickness like throughout the entire knife.

This is the thinnest knife. Here I mean you can see with all these other knives the handles they kind of swell out, and that is a little bit of a problem with long term use of the ac3. But when you carry this knife, it is super flat super low-profile. It does not. Stick out at all, so it makes it a really good defensive option, as well as a pretty capable field blade, and so this is how to make my list just for the fact that it, if it’s dualism it also in my opinion, is one of the most Perfect sizes for a neck knife – I know these smaller neck knives are great, but at the same time I do like personally just a little bit of a larger knife, and so that’s where the S III lines right off with me, and so I really like this One and if you do shop around normally these things are a little over $ 100, so normally like around 104 to $ 100 on Amazon, but I actually shopped around and found a killer deal on this one.

I got this one for like $ 70, so you can find good deals on se. Threes. You just really have to read out. You know, go to a lot of knife shops in particular. I got this one from knives ship free when they were doing like a blowout sale or this one I like, sell a whole bunch of excess stuff, so they were discounting it heavily. So I really liked this one. I was able to get it like. I said for a really good deal and this one’s a little bit of special one just for accelerations, it’s a green and Brent blaze orange as well as it’s a modified tang.

So I really like this one. I’ve been very impressed with it and, like I said what I like most about this knife, is that dual factor that not only can you carry this in a bushcrafting situation and still a very capable knife. But if you want a knife that also duels as your everyday carry neck knife or a defensive purpose, this is a very good choice. I want to a little bit more of an unusual one, I’d say in the LT right lineup.

This is probably one of their least talked about or more rare knives, and this is the LT right can’t muck. Now this is actually one and I’ll be doing the forward wellness and a bed, but this is actually one that came over from the. What is it long blind horse knife days and this one was the camp muck by blind horse knives, but of course, black horse knives no longer exists, but LT right took this design on and once again I think they killed it and additionally, a super capable camp Knife, it’s extremely good.

I’ve dressed several game animals, it’s extremely good at dressing game animals, it’s pretty good at doing just regular camp tasks. This is an a2 tool steel, so the edge retention is pretty good. Once again, it’s right around the same size as the SE. Through you can kind of see, you know it’s, it’s actually a little smaller than the S III and so fits right in there right in my kind of loved size range.

So I really like where this fall as far as the size range goes. It’s not too big, it’s not too small and one thing it’s a very unusual knife. It’s really awesome. I love that nest neck design. It’s not a design, you see very frequently anymore, but it’s still extremely capable and if you ever use an S, mukhda zine you’ll really love it. So that is the LT right can’t muck. This one, like I said, is an a2 tool.

Steel with black and blue g10 that is contoured, so I really love this setup. These are pretty tough to find like I was saying they are rare for a reason. I contacted LT right and they only make these every once in a long while in small batches. So if you want one of these, they’re really tricky to find, but just google them, you can likely find a company. Once again, one of my favorite places to get knives is nice ship free, not trying to do an ad for them, but I found both of the SE and this LT right there they only had this is the last one they had in stock, though so yeah.

These are pretty tricky to find that’s kind of my only hesitancy of making a review with them is. They are quite tricky to find and they’re not made very frequent. You probably one of my favorite. I guess you could say math knives. I’ve carried this or I carried this. This is decommissioned both of the companion and this one on our decommissioned. In case, you guys are wondering why you don’t see necklaces on them.

They long abundantly absolute favorites, but for a very long time it was one of my most favorite bushcraft knives. I guess a whole just an entirety of bushcrafting. It still is an extremely hard to beat night. If you really want to see the standard of what a bushcraft knife should be it pretty much is the bark of a nice bushcrafter, I’m not just trying to say that, because it’s an expensive knife, but overall the complete design on this and the way it’s laid Out the wave, the exit is just extremely good.

I have game animals with this knife, everything from grouse to squirrels, to hares every every really my shot, every type of animal except large, large game animals. I’ve dressed with this. It is an extremely capable knife, not just in stress in game animals, though it is also very good. At carving netting needles, try sticks really. This was a knife that I had to separate myself with, and so when I do a lot of like how-to articles, I don’t like to do it with this knife, just because I use this night so much I mean it is like my general purpose fix all Knife look: I just need a knife to do something.

I am 99 % sure this knife will do it and it’s made out of the excellent CPM 3v steel. It is an incredible steel. This 3 v it just goes forever. It’s an absolute trooper of a steel. It is a sharpened spine or at least a 90-degree spine, so it throws fair odds, marks very well. The handle’having. Now more experience I did when I first got this knife with handles. I will say, at least in the beginning of this, handle it’s a little too slender me, but still even now, it is pretty good.

Another thing I like about this knife as far as neck knives go. You can see that even with these gigantic mittens on – and these are a very large men in case you guys don’t know – these are not tiny little mittens, but even with these very large mittens on I solve a complete hold. None of my fingers are falling off. Even you know, with the mittens on the mitten is not falling off the back or really the front.

You know I can still fully use this knife, because this handle is quite large. This is, I think, the largest neck knife I have here, and this is probably honestly the largest size for neck knife. I would ever recommend but overall, like I said, if you’re looking for a standard of measure for a bushcraft or really not nice, this is it. I do think if you were to go with this knife, it’s really hard to go wrong with it.

It is expensive, I’m not going to lie it’s around 230 dollars, if not more, because some of the handle options, but it is 5 knives or neck knives for bushcraft. In particular, I could go into a defensive role like or everyday carry where I’m carrying neck knives for defensive or in a defensive role, and certainly it would change up a little bit. There would be other knives in this mix, but this one’s more specifically talking about outdoors knives and, like I said over my experience of years and bushcraft, would have been some of my favorite neck knives.

Hopefully, you’ve enjoyed that. Don’t forget to comment like share subscribe and tell me what your thoughts are. What are you guys’s, 5 top neck knives, or do you guys even carry neck knives? I’m not sure not. Everyone carries neck knives, but I certainly do and really love it. If you guys don’t carry neck knives seriously, think about it, anyways guys! That’s all! For now and I’m out you you

Benchmade 550 Griptilian Review and Use

Please do not forget to comment like share and subscribe if you want to see more awesome, Alaskan content like that right into this review. This is actually the first benchmade night I ever got and it’s been a pretty awesome.

Benchmade I’ve carried it for quite a few years. I don’t really religiously carry it anymore, as there are other options and, of course, being an EDC care reviewer. I try and keep more knives running through the rotation, but this knife kind of is special because it is my first bunch mate and I ever thought, and so that’s why I’ve kind of kept it around and the other reason I’ve kept around is because it is Still, even though it has hateful serrations on it, it still is a pretty capable knife overall, especially in an everyday, carry setting, and so once again does, unfortunately have serrations, but back when I was first getting this knife.

If I was kind of one of those kids at that time, I really liked the whole black blades and serrations, and all that kind of fancy stuff that really it was kind of a trend of being cool. But the trend didn’t really last because practically plain edges just end up being better overall, so yeah. That is, but it’s basically why this one has serrations on it and, as you guys will notice, I tried my hardest.

It still was a little bit hard, but as I was processing up that pizza box of an awesome pizza company, I was trying to actually split some of the testing between just the straightedge in just the serrations. It is a little bit hard because this blade is not the longest blade, and so it can be a little bit difficult when you’re trying to kind of slice through something to just keep it on just the serrations or just the blade.

And I also did a little bit of intermixed, so you know if you’re just a straight slash right through that cardboard, you’d first catch the serrations and then the plain edge, so there’s going to be a little bit of. But I wanted to kind of show you guys what it looked like with just the plain edge and what it looked like with just the serrations. I will say I think the serrations had a bit of an easier time with part of the cardboard.

I think they might be a little bit better and of breaking up the cardboard fiber kind of just going right through it. So partially serrated blades aren’t entirely bad, but they definitely are not my favorite. They do have some batter applications such as fibrous materials like cardboard and especially ropes. Serrations tend to go through a lot faster, but at the same time they can be a little bit harder to maintain and overall, I think they kind of just don’t look that good.

Anyways, so my overall experience with this knife has been, for the most part, really good. I’ve really enjoyed this knife and there’s a reason other than this. Just being my first bench made why this knife has stuck around with me for the past, like five or six years, bunch mates, really it’s just an overall great knife. Now I currently have this one on a lanyard, because I don’t really like the benchmade clips, and so I thought I would just run this one on a lanyard.

I don’t run it that frequently that one I do occasionally run this knife. I kind of like to mix it up and just kind of throw it in the pocket and just kind of run it that way, because every once a while I do enjoy a lanyard knife instead of one that has a pocket clip on it. So that is how it’s running as far as retention or in the pocket carry as far as overall organ of expulsion, a far n handles there, nothing special it’s just like a plastic handle and you can definitely tell they kind of feel a little cheap.

But at the same time that that cheapness does pay off, because these knives are still pretty affordable for what you’re getting and so that the cheap material and the handles helps you to have a better blade material and a higher-quality knife at a lower price. So I really can’t complain about the material as far as the material does go. It has to to test the time and I’ve abused the knife quite a bit and accidentally like dropped this knife in the closed position.

Thank the Lord on things like stone and rock, and it has a few gashes in the handle to prove of that, but the handle hasn’t shattered or it hasn’t really cracked in any ways, though other than that the for the most part, the ergonomic still pretty squared Away this is not really a tactical knife, but it could be used in that way. You do have jumping back here for your thumb, and so it could. I will say I don’t know if the 550 having a kind of reverse sheet foot blade, is the best option for a tactical knife, because it’s not the absolute most pointy, because your tip is kind of downward sloping.

Certainly not like another knife. That’s similar like this. One and the primary reason why the nsync Oh grind is so much better at penetration is because Chris breeze has actually gone in and put cuts on the both of the top to both sides of the top of this tip and helped thin out the overall blade Material here and put a false edge on the top, so it kind of AIDS in penetration, so that I will say is why that downward sloping tip on the nsync.

Oh grind works so well, but this one obviously does not have that so other plate features that I do really enjoy are not the serrations cuz. I don’t really enjoyed those, but I do actually love the opening hole. I am a big fan of Spyderco knives. I wish I could have more of them, but right now only have one of them in the current collection, and even though I only have one, I still love all these Spyderco whole opening knives and including when benchmade put a spider hole hug their knives, regardless to How controversial that is or isn’t? I still really enjoy that? I really do like that, and I, like that, a lot more than 5:51.

I believe it is the one that just has the thumb studs, which is not bad. I have a few thumb stud bench maids. This one included and the 5d sexes – and so some studs are not the worst thing in the world, but I kind of like these whole openers more, but I do like the the whole overall. It also kind of lightens the blade stock a little bit more and as far as the 5d justify 50 goes, I do like the blade shape a little bit more.

This one is in a black. I forget the coating that they use for this, but, as you guys can see, this one has been heavily used in a bit abused on the tip and it definitely has a bit of a we’re on this coating. But for the most part, this coating is a pretty tough black coating and it’s not too tacky. I know some people don’t like st coatings, because they’re really tacky and this one just like any coating – does have a bit of tackiness to it.

But for the most part it is overall pretty smooth and, like I said within reason, pretty durable – I mean most of this tip kind of we’re here has happened when I actually stabbed this knife into some tin cans. This was really early on and I stabbed this knife into some tin cans to like make a Hobo, stove air or a couple Hostos actually, and that’s what actually primarily wore off this coating was that contact with the tin can on this steel, just kind of tough To clothing right off, so that’s a pretty and good abuse to take the coating off.

So I’m not too surprised to cody wore off when doing that, and then on the back of this, I also induced this knife quite a bit for striking feral rods, because it does have a pretty sharp back on it. So the back of this knife is actually the coating is pretty beat up because I’ll use it a lot to strike Ferro rods. As far as the lock goes, this is, of course, an axis lock and I love axis locks. If you guys haven’t noticed, I have or have had a lot of bench maids in the collection, and that is on purpose.

I do really love benchmade axis locks in particular, so overall I really loved their axis. Lock, it’s a fun lock to use. I really have a knife that smooth without a bit of side to side place so like these types of knives will have. You know just a little bit of side-to-side play, but that’s that’s because they’re so smooth or if I said over all up and down play is absolutely nothing and very solid lockup for six years and I do go in and I kind of clean this one every Once in a while, when there’s kind of dirt built up on the actual axis lost, because acting kind of at times hinder your lock up, but that’s about all, I do, for it blade centering for anyone who cares this one’s actually pretty well centered.

Now, on to the actual blade, as far as it goes and at retention, this is, of course a 154cm version, so this isn’t anything special. I know they’ve made some like s30v CPM, 20v blades and higher-end Steel’s for the grip, Tilian and I’m sure those work just like CPM, s30v, normally works or just how CPM 20v normally works in itself, but the 154cm on this works pretty well. I did get one off knife of a bench made barrage that I still have, which was my second bench made – that I think they over heat treated, because that one is really hard to put an edge on.

But I have a few, a CPM or not CPM but 154cm from bench made and they overall they don’t hold an edge forever, but they do sharpen up pretty fast and pretty easily this one included and it holds an edge for at least an amount of time. It’s not the most amazing steel, but it’s definitely better than something like 440 C or even vg10. In my opinion, and so edge retention is pretty good in that regard, the overall blade on this.

I think I would have enjoyed a lot more had it been a plain edge and I do actually really like the 550 in-plane edge. This serration version. A serrated version is not the worst in the world. It definitely in an EDC. Type of format does perform pretty. Okay, like you, can see how well the serrations weren’t able to chew through, like cardboard once again, rope things like paper. It kind of struggles with because there’s just so many angles of contact with a serrated blade that it can cause the paper or thinner material.

So you’re trying to cut to kind of like crinkle instead of just slicing right to brew it other than that. Like I said, I really don’t have any complaints, I find the blade length to be just fine for most EDC tasks. Personally, I’ve always been more a fan of these kinds of more wider and larger blades, so like with this 940 here you can see how kind of like pencil then this 940 is and some people they love just having like a really thin blade, but I tend To like knives that are more like that they’re Tilian here and more like this Sebenza that have more kind of width to them to just overall, they seem like larger, more well-built nice.

It’s not does it. This is not a well-built knife. I’m sure this is but this overall kind of gives more of a just feel like you’re, actually holding more of a knife, and I kind of like that in a knife personally and that’s more aesthetics, so anyways, that’s basically all I have to say on the bench Made 550 grip Tilian with this awesome, lanyard mod that I did to it and that’s basically all I have to say on it.

As always, god bless and I’m not

Our Complete Everyday Carry Knife Collection Part 1… Gear Banter Ep.2

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 cĂ©vennes 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.

TOPS I.C.E. Dagger Overview

You is extremely important even more now than after mentioned. There are a few other options and Before we jump into why I chose the ice dagger, I do want to just start off with the importance of having a self-defense tool and why. I think you guys should all have some sort of self-defense tool, even if it isn’t the ice tower in particular.

Now there are many different options I actually have a few. Another notable option is the matriarch by Spyderco matriarch by Spyderco is another great option for how a self-defense tool, but overall you should try to have at all times some type of tool tool on you for self-defense, because this hack can happen at any time. And it’s nice to give yourself an advantage of having even just a small little knife like these.

Now I’ve talked about why I choose knives in the past. I still fully love knives and I take a knife over a gun every day because of the fact that guns, while they are superior to knives in most instances, a gun cannot go everywhere like one of these knives can so that’s the overall importance and why I Just urge you guys make sure you do have a self-defense tool, even if it isn’t the ice dagger go with something like a Spyderco matriarch, just something that you can use to protect yourself now now, let’s actually talk about why I chose the ice dagger now this Has been out for a hot minute: it’s not the newest coolest latest greatest kind of self-defense knife out there on the market, but I was immediately attracted to this knife just for the fact that I wanted something that was very tough, very durable and honestly were a Lot of people prefer something that just has a single blade on it.

I really do like the dagger for enhanced penetration and the fact that I cannot only cut with this knife, but I can also make a deep stabbing and penetrating wound with this knife, and so that’s what it was attractive to the ice dagger. Another reason why I prefer the ice dagger over something like a matriarch is, like, I said, the increased durability and I’m doing some up close shots. Pictures Roland fuller to this, but the ice dagger actually has a reinforced tip.

So the tip the actual, like tip part of this knife from about here forward, is full thickness and it actually retailers down to a point into an edge. So I like about this is there’s no worry about you going in stabbing something in the tip just snapping off on you. This is the type of knife that you can stab into a very hard object or even hit things like bone, and it’s not just going to break off, whereas a knife like this matriarch, which also Roland’s in pictures for you guys, is a very thin, extraordinarily thin.

At the tip and will actually break off very easily if it hits bow and if it hits thick muscle, it’s going to just snap right off, which may be an advantage. It may not. But what I like about this knife is from multiple aggressors, or just even for one likes, that having a very robust tip in a very robust overall build is nice now another thing I have enjoyed about the knife as I carried it and as you guys can See I’ve hard used it a little bit for y’all.

Is I, like the traction on the g10, tops an excellent job on that, especially in the ice pick or reverse grip. I didn’t feel, like my hand, was going to go anywhere. I will say it can be a little bit slick in gloves when you’re doing like a forward thrust. But then again, your thrusts in your anything. Going forward, like this motion kind of thing, isn’t going to have as much power as a reverse grip and what I like about the reverse flip, as you guys can see.

There’S a nice almost Karambit ask ring, so you can leap your thumb into this ring and then close your thumb down like this, and that gives you a lot of positive traction. So if you stab it into something, when you pull the knife back out, you could actually let go of the knife entirely and pull just because if your thumb is caught on that ring, it’s going to pull right back out of whatever it stabbed into so other Than that they have made a few really great cuts in the g10 to make it very aggressive, and it feels really great now.

Lastly, the other reason why I like this knife is, as I said, about the concealed ability. Now you can run this on your belt and that’s another great way of running it. I personally use the neck knife option and we’ll discuss it. The mod that I had to make with it, because you guys will notice the sheath is a little bit different looking, but we’ll discuss that in just a minute, but overall, with the fact that this has very flat thin g10 handles and the knife itself bolts thick Enough not to be weak, it’s also not a very thick knife in general, so it’s it’s very very thinly either was pressed up against your body, there’s no profiling at all with this knife because of the way it’s designed and how flat the sheath is, how flat The handles are, there’s no profiling and when it does sit under especially something like a coat like this you’re going to have no issues whatsoever.

Thank you. Moving on to the last part of this is the modification. Now I’m going to roll in a couple pictures of the bond I did, and I thought you had to do this with a few tops knives. While I do love tops Kydex, I will say their molds can at times be a little bit weak as far as retention goes, and I did find that this one found out the hard way that I was actually running up a flight of stairs and Boop.

The knife popped out and hit the ground. I was like never again on that, because this is a type of knife that you don’t really the public to see because when they see both of these edges and they kind of see the overall profile, it’s so scary. So what I did was, I just took a couple brass screws. I took put the sheath on my drill press punched, a couple holes just at two areas. Where that I could get some extra clamping power from the brass screws, like I said, I’ve done this before on other tops knives.

It’S really simple, and it’s so simple. You don’t even need nuts on the back, because the brass screws thread through the Kydex, so they’re going to hold up just fine. I wanted to make sure that the retention wasn’t too loose or too hard. I wanted it to hit that sweet spot, because when I got it, it was just a little bit too loose. Now it’s right in that sweet spot where it’s not so loose that it’s going to fall out under normal circumstances or slightly strenuous circumstances.

But at the same time, it’s going to have a nice pull and it’s going to be pretty easy to get out without having a wrench on your neck. So anyways, that’s all for the it’s kind of my overview and general thoughts of the ice dagger. It is a really awesome life and, if you’re looking for a really competent and heavy-duty self-defense option as far as knives go, I would very very much encourage you to take a look at least take a look at the ice stacker because, like I said, I think It’S a very smart design, anyways, I’m out
