    Military Weapons Forum
    what is a good knife for a load carrier? I am putting together a fighting load carrier (FLC) and am looking at mounting a knife on it. I have an SOG mini pentagon 2. It has a blade of around 3 inches. Which makes it nice and compact. On the other hand, do you really need a knife on a load...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So my friends keep asking me what I want for Christmas and one suggested I might like an all-in-one tool. Now I'm supposed to pick the one I want.

  8. Unpopular name on a decent knife?

    Knives, Swords & Axes
    Hey guys, So, I see that the Gerber Bear Grylls line gets a lot of flak. That's totally fair in most cases.' The ultimate knife is crap, what with it's tang and cheap steel and lousy sheath. But what about the ultimate pro edition? That's full tang, a nicer steel, an updated sheath (even if...

    Knives, Swords & Axes
    Hello all, I've been fooling around with two things a lot lately, and those are my new work sharp KTS and my Gerber parang. Now, I know the Bear Grylls line of merchandise doesn't get much love, but even it has a few goodies. This parang has been working pretty well for me in yard work (i.e...

  16. Best 25 dollar survival knife

    Knives, Swords & Axes
    You have $25 to spend, you want to buy a good quality knife, so which one do you buy? What is the purpose of a $25 survival knife? In my opinion, knives in that price range are disposable. They are the knives that if lost or stolen are not going to be expensive to replace. From a survivalist...

  20. Gerber Parang

    Knives, Swords & Axes
    Well I was at the outdoor store the other day, and saw this; I have liked the design since I first saw it, and the other day I bought it! Have not overly used it, so as far as long term I cant speak to how it will hold up. The things I do like about it are that it is an excellent chopper...
