Open Invitation to our 7" knife test!

Oct 2, 1998
Hopefully this weekend (weather permitting) I will be conducting a test on 7" knives. So far the knives I have in stock ready to test are.

Cold Steel Recon Scout CV
Busse #7
Fällkniven A1 Bush knife

This will be an all out HEAD to Head Competition with heavy emphasis on cutting and edge holding abilities.

Those wishing to come by and watch this test need to send me an email. I will attempt the test on Sunday the 26th at 12 Noon.

Do it! Do it right! Do it right NOW!

What kind of stress tests will you do? It will be interesting to see which one comes out on top since there has been a lot of discussion on the subject. Since I have one coming you could say my money's on the Busse. Or rather on my CC bill.

I hope you'll throw a Ka-Bar or Ontario in there as a reference.

I don't want my children fed or clothed by the state, but I would prefer THAT to their being educated by the state.
I'd love to come by but I live 3000 miles away. But hey, I'll be there in spirit and I'll be looking forward to reading the results.

Uncle Bill,

I will probaly put a Spec Plus in the mix.

I hope everyone enjoys the testing. Its a bit far for me though-maybe next time? ( If I win the Lottery! )
Yeah - I'll second the Spec Plus entry.
And just for fun - thow in the CAT TANTO too... For comic relief... Hey - it can DENT CAR DOORS!

I mean, if I went around saying I was an Emperor because some
moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, people would put me away!

I'll sacrifice a small, fur-bearing animal before my INFI Steel Heart II and await the results impatiently.
Sounds like it's gonna be fun, wish I could be there.

The pen is mightier than the sword...outside of arm's reach. Modify radius accordingly for rifle.

Mike, did you ever get that CS Recon Scout I sent to you? If you get it before Sunday maybe you could cut a serration pattern in it with your diamond wheel. Using it along side those other knives would provide valuable information.

I love how all these people toss Recon Scouts around it seems Wish I could do that.

7 in knives? no KaBar? cmon Mike, toss a Next gen in there...would love to see how it stacks up...
I would like to see an original Ka-bar added, and a Bushman, too, for reference standards.

Anyone who's willing to send knives to be tested is more than welcome.

I'd like to see how more than a few knives perform, but let's get real here folks, we're not going to add every knife out there if they aren't donated to the cause.

Busse, Mission, Camillus all have donated a knife for testing. James donated a Fallkniven A1. I'd like to get a pristine SEAL ATAK to test as well, so that no one can claim bias with the one that we currently have (any volunteers?), and Mike's contributing a Trailmaster and a Cold Steel Recon Scout.

If you have a knife you are itching to have tested, we'll be more than happy to. But lets not go hog wild on including knives to be tested if you aren't going to help pony them up, ok? No offense....
