The Boker Plus Exskelibur line of knives has been a mainstay of the Boker catalogue, and for good reason. This Burger/Skellern custom design features unique quirks that no other production knife has (more on this later) with solid ergonomics and way, way above average … [Read more...]
Everyday Carry (EDC) Knives
We do quite a number of knife reviews on this blog, many of which are of EDCs/everyday carry knives (usually the folding pocket knife variety). The following are all the reviews we've done of knives that fall under the category of being EDCs/everyday carry knives.
And if there happens to be a knife you want a review of that isn't already up here, comment on a post or contact us to let us know.
Over the past few years, the amount of Spydercos I've reviewed has dwindled. A lot of this is due to the relative high cost of the new stuff (Mamba anyone?) or what I would define as thoroughly uninspired designs (Polestar... what where you thinking Sal?!), but every once in … [Read more...]
When I heard that Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes were the designers behind the Spyderco Pingo, I was ecstatic. I always loved the unique minimalism that Anso and Vox brought to the table and this guaranteed that I would end up snapping this fella' up. Sadly (for me) the … [Read more...]
Schrade has had a rocky history with a lot of us, from its traditional American beginnings to the rebadged "New Schrade" owned by Taylor Brands LLC (of reformed mall ninja fame). I have always had a slightly kneejerk negative reaction to the whole thing, but after many years … [Read more...]
The Benchmade 940 (also referred to as the Benchmade Osborne) is one of the few knives that has truly achieved iconic status. I don't often review Benchmade products due to the relatively high entry costs, but this has been on my list for many, many years. On paper, it's … [Read more...]
The Lansky World Legal is one of the more interesting knives in my newly started "slipjoint" collection. The name "World Legal" implies a sense of legislative submission or social neutering, as if to say, "It's so harmless, it's world legal!" As you can see quite clearly … [Read more...]
In 2004, Spyderco took a huge risk and introduced the UK friendly UK Pen Knife (UKPK) for the first time. It was G-10 with a premium blade steel and in all ways but one, it fit the Spyderco line up. The primary difference being of course its lack of a lock. Historically … [Read more...]
Since arriving back in the UK, my EDC choices have become quite heavily restricted by British Legislation. Instead of moping around the house clutching my over-sized Cold Steels, however, I took the opportunity to go out and buy some UK legal folders instead. Now, with over … [Read more...]
Throughout the past three years blogging here, I have had countless requests to review the SOG Flash II. It's definitely one of the most popular mainstream EDC knives, and while I normally try to cater to my readers in terms of gear to buy, I admit I have dragged my feet … [Read more...]
The Cold Steel Finn Wolf has, by a considerable margin, been my most requested knife to review. If you've ever checked out this bad boy - this makes perfect sense. I have owned this folder for nearly a year now, and have been mulling what to scribble about it since day one. … [Read more...]
