    Anyone have tips for making a kydex knife sheath? I ordered a Morakniv 746 from Maverick Trading Post on Ebay - https://www.ebay.com/usr/mavericktradingpost For some reason the 746 comes with a narrow belt loop that would not even fit my leather belt. So I need to make something that will fit...

    I hate to admit it, but I have a problem: I am addicted to buying Moraknivs. Found a guy on Ebay who is located near Dallas. There was a problem with an order and he went out of his way to make it right. One of his knives had the wrong Morakniv model number in the description, so he sent me...

    I am left handed. Most knives that you buy for the kitchen in stores are only sharp on one side and it is usually for right handed people. I have most trouble with serrated knives. Years ago (while I was 9 mos pregnant) my two year old wanted an orange for a snack. I went to the frig grabbed...

    kershaw “Outcast” I am very pleased with this knife from kershaw. Comes with a great molded case that does not allow the knife to slip out at any time. You really have to pull to get it out of the case. Also I like the hollow rivets that hold the case together, gives it a perfect way to tie...

    Over the past few days the AMC (American Movie Classics) channel on Dish Network has been playing Rambo First Blood almost everyday. Because AMC has been playing Rambo First Blood, I have had to chance the re-watch it a couple of times. This is not a movie that gets old or boring when its...

    So to save some money and instead of paying full retail I decided to just order a Benchmade Mini Grip to use as an edc blade. Well almost done with the process and a warning comes up saying they cant ship to NY. I was trying to order from BladeHQ because they were the only ones wih the 556 in...

So i ordered it any way and just recieved it about 20 minutes ago, this is the first time i have handled one...

    okay, so i'm tired of the cheap $50 knives that the local gun store sells. i've gone through way too many and they break to much. i'm not too knowledgable in the metals and brands of knife makers that are good. What i need are three knives, i'm willing to pay up to $200-$400 for each of these 3...

    Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, but I'm confused by what seems to be a recent and significant jump in the cost of large survival/camping knives. In watching knife reviews by icychap and nutnfancy on youtube, I've noticed that there seems to have been a recent jump in price for many of...

    The top knife is a Bark River Fox River. It has the logo of the survival school I attend this past summer. It's the main knife I bring with me when tromping in the woods. The second one down is a Helle fixed blade I received in a knife swap over at Bushcraft USA. The bottom one is a Green...

    I think the term gets destorted or interperted as fighting knives to often. Personally a survival knife can be a Swiss Army Knife http://www.swissarmy.com/MultiTools/Product.htm?category=outdoor&product=53861& and actually they are more versitile in a true survival situation. I generally break...
