Review of The Kabar Becker BK2 Knife

You can almost guarantee that any outdoorsman will have a variety of different knives that have been designed to do very different tasks. Some knives are more adept at handling smaller, menial camping or hunting tasks, while others are designed to do the “heavy lifting” that only a certain type of knife can deliver.

That feeling of weight may well be enough to give you the confidence to use it to tackle some of the heavier chores.

Review of Spyderco Sage 2

No other brand of knife pays tribute to legendary knife makers of the past like the Spyderco Sage series.
