    Hello everyone, I just wanted to see what others prefer for their knives! This could be EDC, survival knife, anything. To begin: My favorite EDC is my ESEE RAT at the moment. It has maintained its edge well and I have abused it plenty. This may change when my Emerson arrives soon. As for a...

    Am i the only one that thinks these are dumb? I see these deep-pocket clips constantly being used to market a knife like its a positive thing. Having the knife deeper in your pocket only makes it slower or more difficult to deploy when split seconds really count. If its about concealment, the...

    Hi. Does anyone out there own or have personal experience with Cold Steel's AK47 folder? If so, what do you like or dislike about it? Has it proven durable? Does it hold an edge? Is it quick to open? Do you find the lock (once the blade is open) to be strong?

  10. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    Does anyone know where these Recon 1 Folders are made?
