Tactical Knives Magazines
« on: April 11, 2005, 01:12:30 PM »

Got the new issue today.

As usual, Steve Dick and the team did a beautiful job of making a great looking color magazine. God, it is full of all kinds of knives, huh? Page after page after page.

I wonder, how in the world do these knife makers and knife companies compete against each other.  On almost any two pages, there are at least four or more knives that look, well, almost identical in so many ways.

How can anyone pick one over the other.

There are two kinds of knives. Fixed blades and folders. At least teaching knife techniques it is best to work off of these two generic prototypes so that they will apply to all people getting knives.

But, if I were to design a knife? What would be new? Huh?

I don't subscribe anymore....went the way of Black Belt and other magazines.  But, I thought the same thing when I picked it up.   I could have picked up an issue 3 years ago and get the same thing...

the only difference is knife steel.

Interesting question.....

With me? I have always considered it first and foremost a knife catalog, then next rarely informational. It walks the tightrope of political correctness-the dirty little secret is that these tactical knives don't always cut repelling line, but rather - misbehaving people.

So, it hasn't disappointed me.
