Knives at AliExpress

I had seen the knives available via AliExpress, but didn't give much thought to them. PDB ordered one and cranked out this review. No surprises - an OK knife for not a lot of dough. I have the Ontario RAT1 that he mentions as a slightly more expensive alternative and I like it a lot. In fact, it shows up in the profile pic I use.

Win a Knife

I really like my Ontario RAT 1. Win one at Gear Hog!
"It's free to enter! Enter today and you could have a chance to win this great Ontario Knife Company RAT Folder Black Partial Serration Folding Knife from!
The RAT folder features a 3.5 in. AUS 8 steel, partially serrated blade with a black satin finish, dual thumb studs and a black, nylon 6 handle that includes a liner lock and a lanyard hole. The RAT folder has an overall length of 8.5 in."
It is the bottom knife in this picture below. The Kershaw is a little snazzier, but the Ontario feels like a real working man's knife. The RAT 1 was my EDC until I switched to a SOG Mini Aegis

It is amazing what you can find on the internet - the usual knife makers make an appearance along with Youtube favs, CountyComm, etc.

Blades Everywhere

Being slow has it's advantages.... a long list of knife pics from a gun blogger meme about daily carry knives. My Kershaw G-10 SCAMP on the top and the Ontario RAT1 on the bottom. Both are value knives - about $25 per. Not pictured my Leatherman Juice S2 (Orange - Go Vols!). (Also, this is basically a roll call of all the gun blogger world.)

Uncrate Prep

Uncrate normally posts when the latest Ferrari or Porsche is available.

Some recent posts have been a little more practical. TNJeffofAllTrades has the book and I keep thinking $12 is not much to pay for a nice reference for so many things I know nothing about. And who couldn't use another knife?
