On the List – Fixed Blades
I’ve already expressed my love for fixed blades, but you don’t have to spend enormous amounts of cash on a hand made knife to find quality. These production knives are on my list of “to gets,” and they’re worth more than their weight in pesos. Check it…
Esee Izula – This knife is just about perfect. It’s big enough to wear on your belt, yet it’s light enough to use as a neck knife. Most importantly, it’s a high carbon steel blade. It holds a very sharp edge for a long time.
Esee Izula-II – This is slightly different, however not by much. It has a little longer handle and it comes with removable handle scales. Other than that, it has the same blade size and design. This is more suited for a belt knife.
Schrade SCHF24 – This knife has an AWESOME price point. It’s not as discrete as the Esee knives, but a great blade none the less. This knife would be best carried horizontally in urban areas to make up for the extra length.
Ka-Bar BK14 – This was a collaboration between one of the designers of the Izula and Ka-Bar. Great knife and again, a great price point. You can get handle scales for it, wrap the handle with paracord, or leave it as a neck knife. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while.
I could go on and on with a ton of good knifes under $100. These, however, are my favorite choices. Check your local laws before carrying a fixed blade. Also, a sharp knife is a safe knife!
Be safe. Use wisdom. God bless.
