    For $9, its garbage. They do not cover any of the guided systems. Seems to be an ad for the manufacturers of the cheap portable systems that would work for a bug-out bag. They do cover electric pull through sharpeners, but I'm not in the market for one of those either. Do a bit of research...

    I am trying to decide which knife I want. Which I'll use for heavy duty work such as hacking branches and possibly a solid pummel suitable for hammering/smashing glass etc. Cutting rope (serrated needed) Also possibly a handle with glass. You know the ones that are electronically isolated so...

    Hey guys! I have been looking at the Condor Bushlore for a few weeks now, and I was wondering if anybody here has any experience with the knife. If so, is it worth the money? How sharp is it out of the box? How "bullet proof" is it? Is it reliable? Thanks guys!!

    Hey everybody, I own a tanto pointed pocket knife, and got to wondering where the tanto point idea came from, and what makes it better than a regular point. I do very much like it, the angle works as a good cutting edge, and the knife is balanced well for throwing, it looks like it would...

    My definition of a Bushcraft knife holds more in the activity it can perform more so than its looks, though blade and handle shape have everything to do with this. It has to be able to process small game, birds, fish, snakes, and reptiles Has to be able to carve simple items and tools (i.e...

    I got a Coldsteel San Mai III Trailmaster that i'm trying to clean up for selling. Its in good nick, but has some staining on the blade from tree sap that i neglected to clean off after an overnighter. As shes a bloody good knife i want her to look good when i say goodbye. I've tried diferent...

    My personal choice for an ideal SHTF weapon and tool is this: It's substantially capable of damage, even to large dangerous game. It's also fairly balanced. The blade runs all the way through the handle (few blades do this nowadays). Heavy cutting, chopping and batoning through wood (using...

    So I'm making a tomahawk and I have the handle done and all I need to do is the blade. I found an old axe blade and I'm thinking that I might be able to use it. What do you think?
  12. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Just had a quick question: Since the Fallkniven S1 has a convex edge, is it absolutely necessary to use the mouse pad / sandpaper method and sharpen this way, or can you simply just use a normal stone? I purchased a Fallkniven DC4 sharpening stone and would much prefer to just sharpen it...

    Has anyone modified the sheath so it can hold more things like flint and steel? I'm new to carbon steel. How do I take care of the blade?
  14. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Before reading Six Ways In & Twelve Ways Out, and before some real-world application, I was all about my SOG SEAL Pup. I was sure it was all I needed for camping/survival. After reading about George Jasper's outlook on blades, as well as practicing skills outlined in the manual such as shelter...

    This is my Victorinox Fireman, and I carry it everyday, (unless I'm in school of course :) ). Note: the Awl isn't very easy to open, and it's flimsy, so I didn't show it, and also, the tweezers are missing. That is no problam though, since my mini SAK has tweezers. Here's the main blade...
