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: 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.

Review of: Rustic Karambit

For the last year or so, my son has been going on and on about karambits, and how he wanted to find "the right one" for himself.  When I spotted this one in the paper catalog, my wife and I decided to order it for a Christmas present.  This thing is way nicer than I expected, especially for a measly fifteen bucks!  It came sharp and I was able to bring it to a razor edge in a few minutes with my strop.  And, boy, was it a hit with my son!  If I could get that kind of Santa scoring for every fifteen dollar present, the holidays would be a lot less stressful!  LOL!  At this point, I'm really considering ordering another couple of these for my wife and myself.

Review of: German WWII Navy Diver's Knife

I happen to have a good friend whose Dad served during WW2.  The Dad was able to bring back one of these German Diver's Knife as a souvenir.  This reproduction is as close to the original as can be.  The only downside is that the thing weighs a ton (being all metal).  In the water the weight wouldn't matter.  On Land, it's a moose.

Review of: Wild West Damascus Dagger

The Wild West Damascus Dagger is unbelievably crafted from what maybe the best Damascus steel. This is by far my favorite dagger. The most excellent hilt is a long wood grip, beautifully adorned with brass and steel, the guard and pommel are of Damascus Steel. A nice long spear point blade of amazing wavy lines. It also comes with a good quality leather sheath. Thank you Windlass Steel Crafts, and Atlantic Cutlery.

Review of: Windlass Cobra Steel Lakonia

Great! Good balance, looks good, feels good in the hand. I would not hesitate to carry it into trouble. Nice sheath, like the rubber grip. I also have the Cobra Steel Jambia and like it as well. Probably will get more. I own a lot of Atlanta Cutlery products and recommend them to all my friends.

Review of: Magnum Dune Fighter

I have bought 3 of these knives, one for a friend and two for me, one to keep with my hunting pack and one for my backpack. The Magnum Dune knife is a good all around knife to have with you in the woods. Once you pull the edge you want, it just keeps going in tough terrain, no matter what you are trying to cut. It's nice and heavy and that means allot to me with my big hands.
