Case Westline

Written by

Case knives have been an America staple for over a century, they have stuck to what they know best, traditional knives. They did dabble in modern tactical knives back in 2012 with the TechX line. These knives were designed to provide the "ultimate utility knife for a wide range of applications, whether it is everyday tasks around the house, camping or field dressing in the outdoors." These knives were imported and had specs similar with what we see out of Camillus today.

Vosteed Nightshade

Written by

The Shilin Cutter is a Taiwanese knife that was first made in the mid-19th century by a cutler named Kuo He. By the 1960s, there were more than 20 knifesmiths making the cutter in northern Taipei. The Shilin Cutter is a slip joint with a san mai blade shaped like a bamboo leaf, and an eggplant-shaped handle made out of horn. It was a common knife in Taiwan and Japan, and was used by market vendors, mechanics, fishermen, and even carried by bureaucrats.

LynchNW v2.7x All Access Pass

Written by

Lynch Northwest was started by a man with a dream. Casey Lynch had a Para 2 and felt it deserved a better pocket clip. He didn't like the prices on titanium clips at the time and set out to make his own. The idea to build a better pocket clip cascaded into many projects, including titanium prybars. Lynch in the community is synonymous with quality and his pry bars are high prized. Today we are taking a look at the All-Access Pass v2.7x.

QSP Penguin

Written by

The sheer number of knife companies and blades available is insane, and makes shopping even harder. There are some companies that have been under our nose the whole time, and we simply overlooked them. One knife brand that I never thought to give a try was QSP Knives. I've always been a Buck, Kershaw, Gerber, etc kind of guy. Always stuck to the mainstream and didn't dabble too much, mainly because of the unknown.

QSP Knives has been around for more than a decade and have been an OEM for other companies. It wasn't until 2017 that the company started producing knives under its own name. The company's name is an acronym for what they stand for, Quality, Service, and Price. I love a company who's pride and dedication is part of their name.

Vosteed Racoon

Written by

Vosteed believes in giving folks the best bang for buck and giving you amazing quality. They set out to create a highly affordable and reliable EDC, and the result is the Racoon. No, not some cute trash panda waking you up at 3am. That noise you hear is these guys making a heck of a noise in the knife industry.

The Racoon features a ergonomic micarta handle with a button lock. For the blade we have a 14C28N Sandvik steel that's has a high flat grind and a satin finish. All this for $60, quite a bargain, how does it stack up?

394 Components Dual Pry

Written by

When looking for a EDC pry bar there are many things to consider. How do you want to carry it, what size do you need and of what material. Pry tools come in just about every shape and size and it makes searching somewhat daunting.

If you're looking for something in the heavy-duty category, look no further than the Dual Pry by 394 Components. 394 Components is in its infancy right now: barely been around a year. The owner is a Mechanical Engineer by trade with a background in automation and product design and development. As such he tends to be constantly designing "things" in his head and typically drifts towards tools and being a hands-on person. His ethos for design is to not simply copy what is out there, but to create new and different designs and variations - as shown with the Dual Pry.

SOG Aegis MT

Written by

SOG Specialty Knives and Tools over the years has made an assortment of multitools for different trades and recreations. One area they dabbled in is fishing multitools. The now discontinued Blacktip was very popular with users and was a collaboration with West Marine. The Blacktip was based off the PowerAssist tool and included a fish scaler, a sharpening groove and some standard tools.

Years later SOG has decided to try their hand at another fishing tool. This time around it's not based off a current model, but a completely new design. The SOG Aegis MT takes its name from their popular folding knife and the similarity ends there.
