Review of: Vintage Style Boonie Hat
Just like an original I had from a friend of my dads in the early 80's that was from 1971 in Vietnam. Very well made.

Review of: Carnivore Machete
I love it. Perfect for light hacking and generally having available while working on the property. Grip is sure and the blade sharpens very well.

Review of: Boker Arbolito Esculta Ebony Fixed Blade Knife
This knife caught my eye while browsing last month's catalogue. I thought about it, then pulled the trigger, intrigued by the product description and the N695 steel. I thought it would be an ideal utility knife for our rural homestead. It was every bit of what I expected, and quite a bit more. By that, I mean that it is a large, heavy hunting knife, tough enough to handle any task. Therefore, I will continue to use my old Gainey skinner around the house, and this beautiful knife will likely find its way under the Christmas tree for my elk hunting son. To sum up, it's not quite "Crocodile Dundee," but bigger and heavier than it looks in the listing.

Review of: KA-BAR Folding Hunter Knife
Very sharp blade. Another hit with KA-BAR quality! Heavier than it looks.

Review of: Trail Master
She isnt the fanciest gal at the dance but she can be counted on to perform well in a pinch or otherwise in day to day use. Ive had four of these and still own my first. This is a large knife at 9.5 inch blade but it can be used for smaller tasks as well as larger. I mate mine with a smaller blade and made a sheath to carry both, piggyback for the smaller.
Ive used mine for chopping wood, butchering meat and even for kitchen tasks. The TM does them all as required. Could be used for "fighting" but Ive never had that need...
This knife is beyond belief compared to most other mass-market knives. The only thing I would ask for is a couple inches of serrations for cutting boxes and rope etc. Cold Steel could sell a partially serrated blade at no great additional manufacturing cost.
All told, excellent knife. When it came out it changed my performance expectations of what a good blade can do, and displaced several other knives I'd used for years...

Review of: Elk Ridge Easy Carry Hunter
At first I found the knife Excellent but the keeper tab was exceedingly difficult to snap. That's not quite right. It snaps just fine and stays snapped. It's just not do-able? with the knife inside the sheath.
Well, I stretched the tab until it snapped shut and rubbed the strap

Review of: Ironwood Walking Staff
Hey, it's a STICK, not a miracle of modern technology! That said, it is an admirable stick, a little longer than I would use normally, but longer is better than too short. As for the wood itself, it is very solid in the hand, and puts up with forces transverse to its length nicely. I've not yet tested it for shock, but it should do very well.

Review of: United Cutlery Colombian Raptor Sawback Machete with Nylon Sheath
Okay, I don't not need this machete. A total impulse buy, but I love it!!! This is one powerful wielding blade, a very brutal rugged design. I bought this because I fell in love with the tan plastic grip, which is extremely comfortable. This would make an excellent outdoor short machete for cutting brush and a saw blade for cutting branches. I hope I will find some use for it, but until then I just admire it!
