Large Tactical Folder Deathmatch

Post Image

I generally gravitate towards larger knives.  I have small hands for my size, but it’s all relative and a larger folder or fixed blade feels better in my hand than a smaller one. So, when I can legally do so, I usually opt to carry something at least 3.5″ in length.  For a while, my […]

First Look: Boker Mini Kwaiken

Post Image

I’ve had a budding interest in the Boker Kwaiken.  I love the Japenese design aesthetic and the pocket friendly dimensions.  And yes, I realize that I’m very late to that party.  The knife in various iterations has been around since 2013. With that said, I haven’t pulled the trigger on one because all the models […]

First Look: Zero Tolerance 0350SWCF

Post Image

My first Zero Tolerance knife was the 0350SW.  I loved that knife.  As with all ZT’s, it was overbuilt (in a good way) with a stout blade and solid lockup.  The 0350 model is smaller than the 0300 and therefore better suited as an EDC knife.  The original had G-10 scales but now ZT has […]

Kershaw Emerson CQC-7K Knife Review

Post Image

As I get more into knives, I’m starting to sort out what I like and don’t like.  For instance, above all else I prioritize function over form.  A beautiful knife that isn’t ergonomic, doesn’t cut well, or open smoothly with minimal blade play is dead to me.  I prefer flat or hollow grinds for their […]
