Some Field Knife Reviews

Finally, I got deals on some field knives.  These are the bigger knives, optimal for chopping, as compared to the smaller bush knives which are better at smaller or precise tasks.

I have two more of this class knife plus three bush class knives left to review, and that will probably be it for knife reviews for now.   Have I found the best knife in either class?  Probably not, but I think I’ve gone through a wide selection of knives which are “economically” priced.  There were only a few left on my list to try, and those ones seemed not to be available at a suitable discount.  So unless a company wants to send me one for review…

Here are more reviews of medium or “bush” knives:

Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro:  http://survivallife.com/gerber-bear-grylls-ultimate-pro/

(NOT the Ultimate, which is quite inferior)

 

I have three more bush knives to review, which will probably be it for this class of knife, for now.
