Mini Covert FAST

rated 5 of 5 stars As a modern version of the fixed blade Fairburn knife of WW II, it is an excellent tactical knife. It may not be viewed well in NJ and other "non-stiletto" states, however. As a folder, it is well made and often used by the military. This is not a toy. This is a tactical combat knife with a real backstory. Those who remember WW II and the fixed blade version of the tiny stiletto designed for the military recognize this as its modern cousin. It is a durable blade. Most users strop their blades, but… Full review

Big Rock Camp Knife

rated 4 of 5 stars The Big Rock Camp Knife is a great general-purpose fixed-blade camp knife. While it does use cheaper materials, it is relatively inexpensive and can handle years of abuse. To be honest, I can't remember when I originally picked up this knife. This is one of those items that has been in my pack for years and has somehow managed to survive  MATERIALS The blade on the Big Rock Camp Knife uses 440A stainless steel (.65% - .75% carbon) instead of a high carbon stainless steel like you'll find in more… Full review

Obsidian

rated 5 of 5 stars I like this knife for a number of reasons. Notably it has a double lock mechanism so it will never shut on my fingers. The compact size means it doesn’t take up valuable space and it weighs very little – 124 gms. The open design allows dirt and grit to fall through and not jam it up. The blade is 7cm or 2.75” in the old scale, the steel holds an edge well and cuts everything I've needed to date — opening dehydrated meal packets, cutting rope, fishing line and fruit. Additionally, there is… Full review

EVO Jr.

rated 4 of 5 stars Accessible, rugged protection. The reason I bought this knife is the pocket clip, which makes the knife easily and readily accessible when I experience drunks or hostile people or dogs while riding my bicycle. I clip it either onto the loop of my shoulder strap on my daypack, or onto the front pocket of my sport shirt while riding. Actually, I take it with me when walking, too, because you never know what kind of people/dogs you are going to encounter. It beats carrying a handgun, which I would… Full review

Gator Combo

rated 2 of 5 stars A disappointing product from Gerber who is normally renowned for quality and innovative equipment. This appears to be a gimmick aimed at the gift market. Forged steel head with overmolded handle. I bought this for use on the odd night or two camping in the woods when a fire would be needed. Whilst it is a good idea in principle, it fails in practice. The axe is well weighted and cuts small wood well enough. The knife is quite small and I would have preferred something at least an inch longer. The… Full review
