The Seven Best Benchmade OTF Knives

Benchmade OTF Knives

This is a guest post by Jason Schwarber, who unfortunately has no website we can send you to.  We know people like OTF knives, but in my state, switchblade-type knives are illegal to possess.  Luckily, Sam and Reese have an out-of-state buddy who collects them, and Benchmade knives make up the bulk of his collection.  … Read more

KA-BAR Becker Companion

Ka-Bar Becker Companion Review

The Ka-Bar Becker Companion is a popular fixed-blade knife designed by Ethan Becker for outdoor use. I wouldn’t consider it a proper survival knife for most situations, and it’s definitely not a knife for fighting with, but when it comes to camping and bushcraft, it’s hard to beat this powerhouse of a knife.

FantastiCAR Swiss Army Knife

Never heard of FanastiCAR multitools?  I hadn’t either until my wife’s cousin’s kid wanted one like her brothers.  Her brothers wanted their knives more for the novelty than anything else, and their parents suspected their daughter just wanted one for the sake of having one, so when Sam went on a mission to find something … Read more
