Diminutive Dog Tag Knife

I recently came across a Dog Tag Knife that intrigued me. It’s diminutive size was actually one of the attracting features. Simplicity was another. The possibility of good blade steel was a plus. A…Continue

One thing I will mention for any of our reviewers. The main thing I want to convey is information about whatever it is you are reviewing. Is it good, bad, could they have done something better, etc. Basically your perception of what you have.

iKnife Collector is much like an online knife magazine but you can view, like or comment. Thats really what we shoot for. There are lots more views than comments or likes so you have to live with that, but it can be a fun thing to do.

Tests are good as well, at one time we were looking for some standard testing but that may be more complicated thn most folks would be interested in.

Also looking for reviews on Outdoor Gear and clothing, guns and flashlights . Those are all related to the outdoors and we like those themes as well.

Any questions just ask!

There is that offcourse, also...no lock wear, no off center blade, they're generally lighter than folders of the same size, they're usually cheaper and with a slim sheath they'll carry almost as conveniently in the pocket as a sizeable folder.

A fixed blade, won't get blade play or a broken spring. I think a fixed blade can hold up to more hard use than a folder.

The nice thing about non folding knives is often also the handle/blade ratio. In a folding knife there are a lot of technical limitations because there has to be a pivot and the knife has to fit into the handle.

In a non folding knife there's no such thing. A 3" blade with a 3" handle is no problem. Or a 4"/4" blade handle knife.

Try doing that in a folding knife....you'll NEVER get as much blade as a handle unless you cheat like this:

And I'd hardly call that a proper folding knife....on that needs a sheath so you don't cut yourself. That's like a folding knife without the advantages of a folding knife while keeping the disadvantage of being "pre-broken".

I could not agree more. A small fixed blade can do a lot more jobs than it's given credit for. Some Tactical folders have become very large and blunt and are a bit clumsy to use. Most of my fixed blade user are small to medium. I don't own any large fixed blades.

Comment by Alexander Noot on April 22, 2014 at 0:59

Personally I love smaller fixed blades. I make MANY more small ones than large fixed blades.

Currently I really love carrying one of my own "Little Undertakers" in stainless steel. t feels so solid yet the grind is so thing it could probably slice anything it needed. I feel fixed blades in pocket sizes are very underrated while folding knives (especially "hard use" folding knives are a little overrated.

I was thinking about a bunch of knives that are not spoken about much. I'm not sure if this is the right group to talk about them, I'll just judge the response, because I know a lot of ya'll own some of these. The group is "Small Fixed  blades". This is a bunch of knives that I actively use and collect. I am sure a lot of ya'll own some and don't realize they are a little different from your full size fixed blade. Please tell me what ya'll think.

I would enjoy it also. I am sure Mr. AG. would enjoy it too.

Comment by Steve Hanner on April 15, 2014 at 9:33

Well I would surely appreciate a review of the Cowboy! Its been on my list for a long time!

Comment by Alexander Noot on April 15, 2014 at 4:32

I'll do a review on my A.G. Russell Cowboy next I think. It's a large sodbuster type knife and I'm surprised at how much I enjoy carrying it.
