The best hunting knife in the world? Fallkniven PHK..

I used to think I didn’t need a dedicated hunting knife. Most medium fixed blades and a few folders have served me well in a dual role capacity. Most of those knives were designed for basic woods use. They tend to be designed for chopping wood and other camp style tasks. The blade geometry tends……


Ruike M51 Multifunction Knife

Previous to my dalliance with the Ruike M51 I had a yearning for  multifunctional knives. At 9yrs old I was already the proud owner of a slip joint pen knife emblazoned with Disney’s Goofy on the scale. The knife went everywhere with me as I explored the wooded areas around the local neighbourhood with my……


When beauty meets beast – OKC Cerberus folder

Every so often an item catches my eye simply because it looks stunning. This was the case with the new OKC Cerberus folding knife. While scanning through models destined for Blade show 2017 I stumbled across the Cerberus and was keen to see if the function lived up to the form.

Lansky Professional Sharpening System – It Works!

So I have a confession to make.. despite owning lots of knives I have always struggled to get them consistently sharp.. Sometimes I got lucky and other times they ended up blunter than they were before.. The struggle is real! It turns out I am not alone. A lot of guys I speak to have……


Raging Jap RJ5 Folding Knife

Following Blade show there are a number of new knives and even companies we will be reviewing here at GnZ. One of those new companies is “Raging Jap” – new to us anyway. Now I have to say the company name raised some eyebrows and smiles in the office for two reasons.. A couple of……


Desert Legion XII from U.S. Gladius

We recently reviewed a tactical type blade which I thought would appeal to collectors more so than users. The Desert Legion XII bridges the gap between collectable, tactical and useable and adds a little bit of historical in there for good measure..

U.S. Gladius are based in the USA as the name suggests. They specialize in……


Budget Folders from Ganzo Knives

I review a lot of high cost kit. I do not select products because they are high cost, I select products that work and endure. It just so happens that most products that work really well and cope with hard use tend to be at the higher end of the price bracket. Not always though……..


Boker Plus XS UK “legal carry”

Why am I reviewing The Boker Plus XS non locking sub 3″ folder? Normally I am not a fan of the non locking folder but I feel I owe you some back story before we get into the bones of the little Boker…

Ever since I was a little kid I have carried a pocket……


Fallkniven A1 Pro – Best Wilderness Blade?

If you are a regular reader you might have seen the review of the iconic Fallkniven F1 a couple of months ago. Fallknivens F1 is part of a range of knives – the A1, F1 and S1. The F1 is the baby of the bunch which suits a specific niche – a small but incredibly……


Bastinelli Kalinou Karambit.

I reviewed the Fox knives folding Karambit over a year ago. It proved a very popular article with collectors, martial artists and a good deal of video gamers who emailed me with a variety of questions on Karambits. Apparently a Karambit features in a recent game which has no doubt boosted interest! We take a……
