knives- response to theArmorychannel

You recently did a article of all the knives yeah a knife I’ve collected when you can see here I got. I have five knives. I’ve got a couple more at work. These are the ones I’ve at the house, since my wife won’t. Let me buy many guns, I figure i’ll start collecting knives, so I guess we’ll kind of go smallest to largest see that it works this little guy right here.

I believe it’s a crkt. This is what they call the Ichi guess it’s one of the guys they hired in saying is razor sharp, but the tip on it. It’s so fine that I’m afraid to use it for anything, I’m afraid it’s going to break. So this kind of just sits more drawer, clicked in a bit desk, but every once a while, when I’m pretty confident tips not going to break i’ll cut a package up or something because that tip I mean that sucker no effort at all cut through anything.

Alright, this guy right here this is another crkt. This is the first pocket knife that I ever bought. It cost more than probably about ten dollars. I think I got this off. The corn will tool guy that stops by the shop and a nice display this. This one isn’t an assisted opener, but it’s got that little flipper. You pull out your pocket hit the flipper it pops right open. This is got the Tonto edge, tanto tanto, where you want to call it this knife out of the box.

It’s pretty sharp, not really impressed not anywhere near as sharp as that Ichi right there, but this knife is a lot heavier duty for a good long time. This was the knife I carried everywhere. I went and I would have total confidence that this would do anything I needed to do so. These won’t open on the table. This one right here is my latest purchase. This is another crkt knife, oh by the way that this knife is a out of the m16 line from crkt, and this crkt knife, I believe, is called the igniter t.

This is a assisted opening and to open it doesn’t have a flipper and you can’t just push it open and see. If you guys can see this we’ve got, a new system was a frame lock. I guess it’s a liner lock down here, but then there’s a lock up high and when you push that button it unlocks the blade. You can even hear that click maybe. But I tried as hard as I could to get this thing open until you push that button and then just give it just a tiny bit of flip.

I sucker flips open in re. What sold me on this knife was those serrations. I tell ya those things are sharp. I was checking this knife out. I touched some. I thought I’d cut my finger open but just cut to lick the top layer of skin. I didn’t believe it all, but I was like wow that his way is open. I thought it was guess, that’s what you call a clip point. Okay, this knife is not ambidextrous because of that locking system at locks, it closed crkt night or tea, and this is now my everyday carry.

Imagine I’m not usually a famous variations, because that’s why that’s? Why I found this one? This was hard to find because all these m16 lines, all of them, had the serrations they’re, just the normal servations I don’t like, but when I saw these bad boys I was this. I was sold. Let’s see here this one has a Smith & Wesson, spec, ops, knife. This is an assistant opener. It’s got a safety, switch red ready to go, no red safe and see that little thumb stud right there.

That’s not a flipper, it’s actually a switch. You pull! That’s you push that switch down this way comes out. This is another tant, 0 edge for whatever reason eyes I seem to like that blade shape. It’s pretty neat. Looking knife, it’s got some wow well shipping up there. Isn’t that great, I guess on the frame. You’ve got that little flip. The switch stop your finger from Ryan over there’s some decent grip down here and actually this side of the frame.

Here, it’s like grip tape on a skateboard you’re, not slipping anywhere on that. On the other side, I was pleased to see that they didn’t put that grip tape on here, because when you put that in your pocket, man got where that grip tape would rip. That grip. Your pocket up in no time but um gets its molded into the grip, is decently grippy but, like I say, you’re right, hander we’re going to hold it like this on the grip tape, we’re going to hide her thumb when the stud.

This is a. I guess this was my favorite knife. I just got that igniter. This was my favorite one. It’s Kershaw, 10 million designed. I guess this is the cycle, and this is the large one. As you can see pretty big boy and this is assisted opener. It’s got the speed safe system. You can turn the assist on turn these just off. I like to leave it on hit the flipper, which comes out Knutson. It’s a wide blade, and this I was carrying this one for a while.

Let’s go up 30 got a couple of rust spots on the blade, but that’s just part of your normal maintenance keeping your knives clean, oiled. Well I’ll, just

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.

Knife Collection update and Pelican Case Review

Let me open up the case. Scott two lovers on the front one right here: 11 right here, then it’s got one on the side. Over here and another one, we need it open here it is I’m reviewing the Pelican case today for knife storage. I think it’s one of the best options for knife storage.

It’s got the pluggable foam so, like I’ve heard of that a few youtubers say you need to use an exacto knife or like a really sharp knife, to cut out this phone. I didn’t have to do that. All’s I did was pluck it all out. You can see it’s, you can just do whatever you want with it. Oh yeah for bigger knives. I did three up and down. I did it. There’s 14 across 14 spaces for knives, and I did one row big and then all these little and then one more row big, then another, then more little ones.

What I do this as I plucked out everything in the top and bottom layer here, is one layer I’ll get a popular knife to put up against it. The leak, that’s just one layer. You have two layers of foam to do whatever you want. Here’s the second layer, so you got two layers of possible foam. I plopped out the bottom one so that you could so that I don’t every time I get a new knife I don’t have to. I don’t have to take all my knives out.

If I just get one knife and left the pluck out a new piece, every time use the bottom layer. It’s just protective. It’s not pluggable can’t put that it’s just a safety, a little safety Matt. This will fit pretty much any knife that you’ll have. I mean I don’t, I know the spiral. Military is a big knife, I don’t know without fit in here, because I don’t own it, but I’m guessing that it would. If you have this normal knives, they all fit really good like this leak read when I put it in one of these holes just drops to the bottom.

I have to go down there and dig it out. So it’s pretty deep, I’m not sure the exact dimensions, but I’m guessing it’s around. Seven eight inches deep, but you probably like. Well, I don’t want my knives dropping to the bottom every time. Every time I put my knives in there, so what I did was I kept every piece of foam that I plucked out here. I kept all the foam that I plucked out and I put it in a target bag and put it in my closet.

So when I get a new knife, if it’s, if it sinks to the bottom of the hole, I can customize it so that it fits the depth wise for any knife. Excuse me: yeah. You got to pluggable layers, I’m pretty sure it will fit any knife. This is the big 1600 version. I think it’s just a little bit deeper than the 1500 and it’s a lot bigger than the 1500 case, and I just didn’t won’t have to buy another case. So I went ahead and got the bigger one.

It’s pretty much all I got to say about it. It comes with if, when you open the box, there’s an envelope that, like you, can get your name engraved and instead of this being there it’ll be a nameplate or whatever you want to put on there. So they’ll just take this out and put in your name plate that they make I’m going to do that. I costly, I think it costs around ten fifteen dollars. Another thing has: is that pressure with automatic pressure release valve? I don’t know if it says it.

You know just join you in Pelican case, but it’s the pressure release automatic pressure release valve. I guess it just equalizes the pressure like if you have this case on an airplane which I will never have on an airplane because it’s got knives in it but yeah. I can show you how a few knives sit in here for the blur I didn’t have to. I don’t have to customize. It will just fit fit in any of these, just because it’s big enough to where it doesn’t sink to the bottom, but it will, if I keep pushing it’ll go deeper, but it won’t see because of that.

I guess that really grippy. So I didn’t really have to put any phone. The bottom of that. That’s all I got to say about the Pelican case, so really good opt in a story knives to get here. The the latches are really loud and just dirty and you can put a lock on it. There’s two places for a walk i’m going to. I might do that sometimes so, if my friends are over, but that’s all I got ta say about that.

Let me show you all my knives, my collection update after Christmas, i’m going to show you all the knives that you might have already seen in my other articles. Kershaw blur cryo the leak Scout, you that’s it for Kershaw. I think reason i’m doing this. Article now is because I didn’t want to do a article right after Christmas, where I’m still like really excited about the knives I got, but i’m still excited about them.

But when you first get a knife, you’re going to tell a bunch of lies, but how much you like in sup all right? Oh my gos group tell you next. I did a review on this and I knocked it for its detent. I tightened it up a little bit. It’s just now, it’s hard to it’s hard to flick out. I knew that was going to be a problem if I tightened it. If I tighten it anymore, it’s even hard to get how manual. I just don’t find myself carrying this knife.

Very often, oh I’ll keep it. I like it need another benchmade, the benchmade volley. I did a review on this knife as well, and another nice you’ve already seen or the last night that you’ve already seen. I guess the spyderco sage, one yeah, that’s all that’s what I had when I started then after Christmas. Let me show you the new knives that I’ve got ok I’ll start with Kershaw. I got three new curse or four new Kershaw was again.

I got another leak. I wanted a leak with a plain edge, cam razor sharp here it is next to the other one. I wanted a plain edge because I don’t really love serrations and this was a gift and I I really I really like Kershaw serrations, but I still want a plain edge. Kershaw’s, like the only serrations that I can stand. Yeah I got another leak. I got the skyline really popular knife. This knife is not assisted.

I actually like it not assisted it’s really smooth. It’s got this comfortable choil. Here, it’s really comfortable be doing reviews on all my new knives. Probably not this one I’ll be doing a review on the leak. I haven’t reviewed it yet, but sometime soon I will – and I got the Kershaw piston look like this. I have to it’s got the blur same as the blur thumb, studs and a flipper. So I like that night to run out of room in my last new kershaw is the Kershaw knockout, with the sub-frame lock, where we use coming and I got two new spider goes: got the ladybug with h1 steel, rust proof, meeting, sicky city.

I got this knife to go fishing and whenever I’m around water I’ll carry this knife, I really like it for how little it is. It’s really comfortable with the finger choil and the thumb thumb rape. One of my new spider goes in my last new knife that I have the main x2 lightweight. I’m really excited about this knife. This knife is only 3 ounces and for how big of a blade – that is, it’s a superb some great knife to carry.

I love the Y, your pocket clip like the ball, lock the ball bearing lock or whatever. It is still kind of hard to do that. I really like the handles handle scale at night. Sometimes it like, if you’re in low light, it looks black, it doesn’t even look blue yeah. That’s all I’ve got for you guys, show you all my new knives. The review of the Pelican case do a close-up yep thanks for reading guys.

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
