Fixed Blades

A fixed blade knife, fixed knives, straight blade knife and straight knives, sometimes called sheath knives, do not fold or slide, and are usually stronger than folding knives due to the tang and lack of moving parts.

Knife blades can be made from a variety of materials. Carbon steel can be very sharp and hold its edge well, and remains easy to re-sharpen, but is vulnerable to rust and stains. Stainless steel may not able to take quite as sharp an edge as carbon steel, but is highly resistant to corrosion. High carbon, stainless steel is intended to incorporate the better attributes of both. Laminate blades use multiple metals to create layers, combining the attributes of both also. Pattern-welding layers different steel types to create patterns in the steel. Titanium has a better strength-to-weight ratio, is more wear resistant, and more flexible than steel, but less hard and unable to take as sharp an edge. Ceramic blades are hard, brittle, and lightweight: they can maintain a sharp edge for years with no maintenance, but are fragile. They are immune to common corrosion.

Handle material can also vary greatly and includes many types of wood, antler, bone, horn and synthetics like acrylic and G-10. Sheaths are usually Kydex or leather.

Fixed blades, fixed knives, straight blade knife, straight knives play a significant role in some cultures through ritual and superstition. Knife symbols can be found in various cultures and were included burial rites, so the dead would not be defenseless in the next world. A common belief is that if a knife is given as a gift, the relationship of the giver and recipient is severed. An item of value, as little as a penny, is exchanged for the gift, rendering "payment" thus completing the transaction and saving the relationship. 

There are many styles to choose from in this section and many uses including combat, camping, self defense, survival, hunting, diving, and bushcraft. It’s not unusual to have one around for EDC carry for utility purposes as well. Some of the most popular styles are the bowie, bayonet, machete, karambit, wakizashi and tanto.

Review of: Windlass Field Knife HD

just received this blade and really like the 'heft' of the knife.   the leather wrapped handle is very nice the sheath while nice and substantial, the leather threading at the beginning and end is simply glued instead of end wrapping to ensure the sheath doesn't come apart.   good blade

Review of: Windlass Field Knife HD

A great knife for a great price. A beast of a blade. The thick spine will take a beating and come back for more.
The leather wrap on the full tang is comfortable and will only become more so with use.
The leather sheath is also of good quality.
All in all, a quality camp knife or all around tool. Will take a useful, but not shaving, edge.
And it also looks good.

Review of: Windlass Cobra Steel Kindjal

This is a very nice 21st Century version of a classic blade pattern.
Good weight, decent balance, really good steel and a GREAT handle!

On first handling this blade I was stuck by several thoughts the first of which was  " Holy $!*% I better be careful with this thing"

The tip has a very sharp point almost like a rapier and after a few passes with a diamond stone the blade took a razor edge.

My second thought was  " This was nicely done, l really like the handle and this is very good steel."

I will doubtless buy the Lakonia  and then start asking Windlass to make a Gladius and Pugo in Cobra Steel

Review of: Master Hunter

The Master Hunter is a great, no non-sense fixed blade. I have owned a Master Hunter for years, and it has become my go to fixed blade. It has a great feel, the blade is just the right size to make it adaptable for many applications from camping/hunting to personal defense. Nothing flashy with this one, just a great knife!

Review of: Afghan Choora

If Mr. Dean had taken the time to read the details on this piece he would have noticed that the options were "Factory Edge" or "Sharpened" which tells me that factory edge is UNSHARPENED. It seems extreme to find fault with an usharpened knife for not being sharp. I will be sure to specify SHARPENED if i order this knife.
