Manly Comrade S90V – Heavy Duty Slipjoint !

What strikes first when you hold the Comrade is its thickness and weight. This 9 cm blade non-locking slipjoint folder is massive; once open, see how its beautiful classical lines are gentle to the eye. I have chosen the CPM S90V version with a…

RealSteel Knives Bushcraft Folder – Beefy Folding Tool.

I have been dreaming about that kind of folder for quite a long time. Something heavy, strong with a rounded handle to take in the forest and built some shelter. RealSteel Knives, a Chinese company, may have heard my prayer as they are producing…

MANLY PEAK S90V — THE BULGARIAN WONDER AT WORK.

The Manly Peak is a workhorse. So, it has been put to good use in various tasks. The main features of that folder are a very thin geometry and a zero play mid backlock. It has not developed any play and the edge has…

Spyderco C211TIP Marcin Slysz SpydieChef — Folding Utilitarian Cooking Knife.

OK , I do love acronyms, pardon my French but when I have received the Spydiechef I was very excited to test a design made for chefs: a folding tool cooks could keep in their pocket. Knowing my needs to turn SD design into…
