    Hello all, I got my very first BK2 in the mail the other day. It's the nicest knife I've ever invested in and I've wanted it for a couple of years now. I've thought of a dozen different things I want to do to this knife, from stripping it and putting on a patina to replacing the scales with...

    I've been rethinking the metal I lug around in my pack and have decided a multitool combined with a machete is gonna be my new setup. I've narrowed it down to 2 choices The Kabar Kukri Machete (top) and the Coldsteel Kukri machete (bottom). The Coldsteel version is cheaper so thats my...

    I was gifted a Ka-bar knife for Christmas. This is the first solid, high quality knife I've ever owned. It is large, easy to handle, sharp, and it seems so well made as to be indestructable. Of course, it was designed as a combat knife (and my dad and grandpa both had them in wartime), but it...

    The KaBar mark 1 and the CRKT Kaiyuh. I intend on the Mark 1 becoming my new EDC fixed blade, as it seems a proper length and weight for most anything I normally run across from day to day. The Kaiyuh, just looks really sweet and is made from Krupp's 1.4116 stainless which I have no experience...

    Sorry all you leatherman/Swiss army/gerber multitool survivalists cause im sure I will get heat from this, but WTF? How is it there are so many of you I see posting on the " Only One Knife To Survive " threads that you actually think you can live with only a multitool? I own a few of them, and...

    Hi, I spent a few hours on a small caribbean island a few days ago so I brought along my Kabar shorty with kydex sheath as we were all alone there. Well, it must have gotten wet when I embarked the dinghy and I did not realize it. It rusted pretty fast but I used oil and elbow grease and its...

    I recently bought the knife and made some modifications 1) rap 550 cord to the sheath 2) place flint steel striker to the back of the sheath 3) grind the back end of the handle to expose the metal of the knife to use it as strike surface.
