Buck Hoodlum survival knife

Buck Hoodlum review

Finally at long last I review my Buck Hoodlum designed by the legendary Ron Hood. I wanted to use this hard before reviewing. This is a big knife with a blade length of 10 inches and an overall length of 15 and 1/2 inches.The knife weighs 14.6 oz but feels even less than that. It’s made of 5160 carbon steel powder coated for rust resistance.The Hoodlum comes with removable canvas micarta handles. Inside the handles the handle is hollowed out making Ron’s Shock mitigation system.   Come with a nice MOLLE compatible sheath.Best of all its made in the U.S.A!

Worksharp Knife and Tool Sharpener Review

After a week or so of testing I’m going to review my work Sharp tool and knife Sharpener (WSKTS).

When you get a Work sharp it comes with the WSKTS,instruction manual, DVD, guides and two sets of abrasive belts. It comes with a guide for kitchen knives and one that does most other knives, scissors and the back of a serrated knife. There is no guide for sharpening a scandi grind blade however. Scandi’s are the easiest to sharpen though. And I’ll be experimenting on sharpening a mora on the WSKTS without a guide to see if it can be done.

Gerber EAB pocket knife

 

 

Today I’m going to do a review of the Gerber EAB pocket knife. It’s constructed of stainless steel. Weighs in at 2.2 oz and uses regular contractor blades. The closed length is 2.4 in and open is 4.1.  The EAB is  liner lock knife.

 

I picked up the EAB about a year ago when it was on clearance out at a local Walmart. I had heard good reviews on it and at the $10 bucks I spent on it I figured I could not go wrong. Basically it is a very tiny utility knife. By far the smallest and lightest I have seen. I was not disappointed by this purchase at all.
