The Swedish Mora knives are practical and cheap no nonsense knives. I was first introduced to it by my late uncle, who gave me an old carbon steel blade Mora with wood handle. Loved it to bits that I can’t recall where I buried it. Thanks to the internet, owning a Mora knife today is just a few mouse clicks away. When I heard they have a few new designs out, I knew I had to check them out.
The Spyderco Laguiole Ramco folding knife is probably one of the rarest Spyderco knives I have in my collection. Its been too long of time with me and I guess it is timely it went to a new home. Plus of course the money from the sale will go towards my new toy…
Kelmarin, Wak terima sebilah pisau dari sahabat di Kuala Lumpur. Jenama Hultafors, model Heavy Duty. Pisau dari negara Sweden ini taklah se-glamor pisau Mora tapi dalam internet banyak dibincang dan disebut juga. Pisau yang Wak terima ni pisau terpakai tapi masih nampak mantap.
If you are into knives and guns, you would know what a good kydex sheath is. Kydex is a thermo moulding plastic that when heated and pressed, will take on the shape of an object. It is a durable plastic which was used initially for aircraft interiors. A kydex sheath for a knife or a gun means a more secure keeping, more durable and ‘silent’ way of keeping your piece. Something that many collectors, preppers and tactical enthusiasts would appreciate. I have had my hand on kydex sheath making with little success. Someone recently pointed me to a guy in Subang Jaya that has taken up the art of knife kydex sheath making. I had to pay the guy a visit.
Kalau cakap pasal pisau survival, susah nak ketepi brand Esee. Jenama pisau berasal dari Amerika Syarikat, pisua Esee buatan Rowen memang diakui antara yang paling lasak. Begitu confident sekali dengan kualiti produk mereka, semua pisau Esee buatan Rowen disertai jaminan ‘no questions asked’. Kalau hang bai patah, dia orang bagi sebilah yang baru…tanpa soal. Nah…ini baru Wak panggil pisau survival sebenar!
Kalau sebut pasal pisau dan parang kat Malaysia, memang sah ada banyak peminat. Tak kiralah, pisau jenis apa dan dari mana, asal tajam, nampak cantik…memang ada saja peminatnya. Wak sendiri pun gila pisau. Koleksi tak banyaklah tapi boleh gagah la orang kata. Yang bestnya, baru baru ni Wak terjumpa satu siri video dalam Youtube dibintangi saudara Azam bertajuk ‘Sembang Pisau’. Bangga rasanya ada seorang anak Malaysia yang berpengetahuan buat video berkongsi ilmu dan pengalaman dalam internet. Yang lagi best, video yang dibuat boleh kata kebanyakannya dalam Bahasa Malaysia.
If it is all down to a choosing an Everyday Carry (EDC) folding knife, then I would have to go with the Benchmade Triage. For someone who spends 90% of his time in the city, I can’t think of anything else that delivers the functionality and practicality of the Triage. To me, it is a purposed driven folding knife that offers capabilities that suits a city dweller.
\#@*&%! hell. One short trip to the jungle and this is what happened to my Mora knife. Carbon steel it is but damn…do they rust easy. Even the coating does not seem to do much help. Worse part is…I did not even use it much!
