The Svord Peasant knife is a century old design that was brought back to the mainstream by B.W. Baker. This is a knife I have used and owned for a good long while, but have always been on the fence with regards to reviewing it. In practical terms: this is a very, very basic … [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.
Back in 2015, I reviewed the original Kershaw Shuffle. I don't normally review newer models because usually the differences are so slight (Paramilitary 2 vs Paramilitary 3 for example), but in the case of the Shuffle II, it might as well be a different knife. It would be … [Read more...]
I think many of you will have seen this review coming. When Kershaw announced the "Pub" by Dmitry Sinkevich, I was beyond excited. It seems to me that Spyderco was always the de facto "weird 'lil knives" company, but recently I have found myself straying and loving these new … [Read more...]
Ever since Kershaw announced their collaboration with Ernie Emerson, I have been waiting for a knife like the CQC-10K to arrive. The first Emerson collabs were in the same vein as the previously reviewed CQC-6K, a true-blue Emerson design, but in a smaller-than-Emerson … [Read more...]
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...]
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 Pingo … [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...]
