Re: ZS Hot or Not: Knives Edition

Just got 2 new knives 1. Rat 1 Positives- came very sharp, blade has a good belly for slicing and is FFG, AUS 8 is a decent steel in the price range, blade is well centered and there is no movement. Negatives- thumbstuds seem misplaced meaning it's a lot harder to open than my spyderco or kershaw k...

I do like the bigger blade, but it looks like I have a giant .... thing... in my pants. At all times. I've been thinking I need a smaller one so it is less noticeable.
Actually they DO make a no.13 size blade!

Well we were talking about field use ......

Re: Entrek Knives anyone?

The sheaths work ... how bad they are is overstated. IMO However there is much room for improvement. Belt clip is riveted on and not detachable. .thr rivets are also not spaced for a molle clip and rhe belt clip is conservatively sized. They do work though and with nice retention from what Ive seen.

Re: The LMF II, A review

Hmm, according to your review the blade is both 12c27 and 420HC :) The steel changed due to availability, from what I'm told. The exotic stuff they started with was crazy expensive, and not easy enough to get to support the demand, nor was it all that much better that I'm aware of. The steel they u...
