Again this is all made with my smartphone as I’m far from any computer. A folding dagger as beautifully designed and made is not a bushcraft knife. But my very first modern folder back in 1993 has been a Gerber Applegate folding dagger. The first models were made in a stainless steel close to 420Hc. … Continue reading Tuscan Raider #3 – Spyderco C215GP Euroedge.

My first real step in the wide Spyderco world was the Terzuola Starmate and the Millie. The Starmate was equipped with some super new steel … Continue reading A Spirit In a Material World: Sting, The Police.

This is the first Benchmade’s review for a long time. Why ? Not because of the quality of Les De Asis company’s products but because I was not really excited by their production in the last decade after a huge love with their AFCK back in 90’s, and also with Nimravus and all those blades … Continue reading Benchmade 200 Puukko – Call me Snake.
