Comments:
The Overlander 2 is the revised version of the original Overlander. They have thinned out the handle which makes it very comfortable and given it a new look with different colored micarta and blade coating. This is a very robust little knife, if you are looking for a smaller fixed blade that has can handle a lot of abuse then this is the knife for you. It is thick and has a saber grind which does not make it an amazing slicer, but it will preform well in all the task you would ask it to do.

The Steel Will Chieftain is a modern take on a classic bowie design. The knife is very high quality and well built. The sheath is junk and will need to be replaced. The blade design and steel is awesome and will preform very well. The handle is a little blocky but other then that feel great. All in all a very solid well built knife that can do a lot of work for you.

I can only think of one bad thing about the military--it is tip down only carry. Many of Spyderco blades are tip up or down, left or right hand carry.
This is otherwise a pretty fantastic in everyway knife! (Oh, and some ppl find Spyderco knives ugly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.)

I've always wanted one of those gorgeous, Loveless styled custom boot fighters, but I could never justify the multi thousand dollar price tag. The Shiva is the perfectly executed, production version of that Loveless type knife. The fit and finish is excellent! The materials used are well established in the knife making industry. For the $350 I paid, the knife is well worth it!

I've used this thing for everything from cutting thick rope to scraping dried putty off of counter tops to screwing in screws. The only problem I have had is the blade does get loose and you have to tighten it down every so often and it stays sharp no mater what I have done to the thing. Best thing is it fits nicely in my wallet.

This knife is designed as a slim edc fixed blade to go with you everywhere. The quality is high and the overall design is very functional. The best part of the design is the 1/8 inch thickness makes it a great slicer!

Comments:
The Puma Coyote has a lineage of being a classic hunting knife. The quality is great and I was surprised by the level of edge retention that the 440A steel had. The down fall of the knife is the ergonomics. The handles is too short and uncomfortable to use. There are other knives out there that can do the same thing for less money and with a better felling in the hand.

I've had this knife for a few weeks now and all I can say is, "wow!" Sure it is a little on the pricey side, but this SOG is a work of art. Massive, lightweight, and fills the hand nicely. There have been some who think the Fatcat needs a pocket clip, but EDC knives are suppose to be discrete. This SOG is anything but discrete! It will fit a front pocket if you don't mind carrying a massive folder like this, yet using the nylon sheath isn't that big a deal. It feels like a multi-tool on the belt and has a nice sturdy clip so it will not go anywhere. I was thinking a nice leather pouch would be better but a snap closure would cause rub marks all over the titanium. I'll end it with this. The VG-10 blade is so sharp it is scary. Makes a razor blade seem dull. Sell six of your $50 knives and get one of these, you won't be disappointed. Besides, it will be your grandkids favorite some day.
