Chris Reeve Professional Soldier?

Postby SpyderEdgeForever » Thu Oct 08, 2015 11:25 pm

I was looking at this knife:

http://chrisreeve.com/Professional-Soldier" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

What do you think? It retails at 195 dollars, and is one-piece. Would you say this is a good everyday carry, emergency kit, and outdoor sporting and emergency tactical knife that is worth every dollar?

Also, some claim that blade is "Hollow Ground" but it looks like it also has some Saber-Grind like stuff going on. How would you classify it exactly?

It looks exactly like a Benchmade folder blade on a fixed blade.

Looks like a fairly nice slab of S35 and that drop point variant looks very useful.... but there's plenty of competition in that price range and for the money I'd want some nice grips on there. ;)
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

I think it looks great but the price is too high for me.

No way I would even think about that one. Looks too much like that big old blocky thing Bench made makes in a folder. The way to test a knife is pick it and squeeze it with your hand as hard as possible for a minute or so and see how many places on your hand are killing you

I'd say it's only priced that high because of the name on the blade. If you're looking for a fixed blade look at tops knives. They have a lot of great designs for a halfway decent price.
