    Anyone recommend a MOLLE sheath for folding pocket knives? The goal is to carry a good quality knife on the outside of a backpack. I want to outfit all of my packs with a knife. The problem is, some of the packs have limited MOLLE webbing. Once you attach a couple of canteens (one on each...

    I want a Morakniv Basic 546, but the handles only come in blue, and blue orange combinations. Why a so called hunting knife comes in blue beats me. Has anyone painted their Morakniv handle? If so, how did it work out? I have a 511 with a black handle I thought about experimenting on, but...

    Guys and gals, someone recommend a new knife for my collection. I am thinking of something around the size of the Gerber Strongarm (I already have one), or around the size of an SOG Sealpup. I do not have an SOG Sealpup, so I am leaning towards one. MOLLE adaptable is a requirement. Please...

The SHOK is my own sign, I have chosen an ant as my symbol as he has admirable characteristics which can be compared to the knife of high quality. I'm making knives especially for use in the wild nature...

    Armchair commandos may believe anything sharp will make a good skinning knife, this is simply not true. *Certain types of knives are much better at skinning wild game than others. *Let's take a few minutes and talk about types of knives to stay away from and types to consider. For most...

    Do you think stockpiling cheap survival knives has a place in your long term SHTF survival plans? Why stockpile cheap knives? 20 years ago some of my buddies and I were making bug out bags for friends and family. The bag contained a canteen, water purification tablets, thermal blanket...

    One of the great topics in the survivalist / prepping community is about survival knives. Everyone has an opinion about what kind of knife would be ideal for surviving in a post-SHTF / post-TEOTWAWKI world. Some of the discussions on knives revolve around real world situations, while a lot of...

    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...

    I've been online looking at the website for Mora Knives and it doesn't tell me which knives are full tang and which are partial tang. Anybody know?

    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...

    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...

    I need an EDC folder. I don't want/need a tanto or "tacticool" knife. Price really isn't an issue as long as it's not more than $100. This will last me a long time, and if I have to put my life on this blade, I want it to work when I need it. I'd like it to be... -tough and rugged (ie. can...

    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...

    Ever wonder why companies make items targeting groups of people that are just crap? This bothers me, as I am one of those quick to run out and buy something, then find out latter that I got cheated. So lets compile a list of crap NOT to buy. 1) Super duper Giant Rambo, Pirate, Tactical...
