To further enhance its versatility and efficiency as a weapon, it sports a four and a half inch long sharpened clip point that helps facilitate the deadly back cut, as well as a wide variety of more conventional cuts and stabbing attacks.

Considered by many to be the ultimate fighting Bowie, this perfectly balanced, razor sharp and classically styled knife is available with either 0-1 or Japanese San Mai III steel.

$5 Walmart Purchase

I scored an interesting deal on a Sheffield, camouflage handled knife while doing my weekly Walmart shopping. This beauty cost only $5.00. The cardboard display featured many shelving units with Winchester branded knife sets and other Sheffield sets. I spotted the following piece that cost only five dollars and I snapped a couple photos of the packaging and knife itself for your reference.

Specifications: 3" blade; 3.5" handle, camouflage handle, pocket clip, frame lock release, stainless steel blade, lanyard hole.

It's not every weekend I observe such a display which made me surmise these knives and knife sets are available for a limited time and/or while supplies last. They didn't appear to be restock items after they become sold out being that these knives aren't routinely seen at Walmart. I could be mistaken. Be that is it may this knife is a quality piece at a very low price.

NRA Convention Demonstration of EZE-LAP's Diamond Stone Knife Sharpener With Product Overview

People like videos. They love them. A lot. Most prefer BRIEF videos over reading, anything too lengthy or anything that has letters of the alphabet present for that matter. Content? It better be in video form. A VLOG for instance.

Anyway, this rhetoric has nothing to do with the below video I just had to post. It involves a diamond knife sharpener exhibited at the recent NRA Convention (see: Are You Sharpening Your Knife All Wrong? for full article at

It's not so much the sharpener I wanted to bring to everyone's attention who didn't read the article or watch the video demo yet. It's the method in which the demonstrator, Ralph Johnson, sharpens. Using a "swirling" motion he produces a finer and sharper edge to a knife.

Ralph Johnson of EZE-LAP Diamond Products ( shows us the best way to get the perfect edge on your knife at the 2014 NRA convention via video entitled "How to sharpen your knife" uploaded by YouTube user Jonathon M. Seidl.


"EZE-LAP manufactures a wide variety of diamond products for sharpening knives and tools. EZE-LAP has been a pioneer and originator of diamond sharpeners since the early 1970′s. Our unique diamond process and modern technology allows EZE-LAP to produce the finest quality diamond products for the lowest possible price.

  • Lightweight- 13 grams

  • Surgical blade technology with long 65mm cutting edge ensures longer lasting sharpness

Slimmer and lighter than an ordinary knife, updated features include a stiffer, polypropylene body (living hinges guaranteed for life) and a unique safety lock (cannot open in pocket or drawer and is child proof). The extra long stainless steel surgical blade ensures longer lasting rust free sharpness and the superlight polypropylene body includes a built-in protective sheath that helps prevent injury or blunting.

    Celebrating the Buck 110

    A stunning construction presents itself. This knife in particular astounds me personally due to its heritage, its history and long withstanding sentimentality. We're all very well acquainted with this series knife, the Buck 110, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014. Most car models don't last that long. A genuine favorite, the Buck 110 Folding Hunter Knife is memorable, nostalgic and masterfully crafted. If you happened to purchase this edition in 2014, there would have been an emblem on the knife marking the 50th year of the Buck 110.

    The 110 Folding Hunter--Buck's signature knife--originally debuted in 1962, making it a good year for knife safety. The Folding Hunter is equipped with a nail-notch lock back design that opens easily and closes safely during any activity, ensuring that the knife never goes out of style. The knife's 3-3/4-inch stainless-steel clip blade, meanwhile, is ideal for detail work, such as piercing and cutting in tight places. And users will love the natural wood-grain handles and polished brass bolsters, which add a classic touch to the design. The Folding Hunter, which comes with a black leather sheath for easy carrying, is backed by Buck's 4-Ever unconditional lifetime warranty.

    Top Rated Kitchen Knives Include Wusthof, Henckels, and Forschner Knives

    By Joel N Sussman

    Every day, thousands of people search the Internet looking for guidance on purchasing the best kitchen knives and cooking knives. There are a variety of criteria you can use to determine what would be the best kitchen or chef's knives for your budget and purposes; but, one of the best places to start is with expert and consumer reviews. Generally, you can't go too far wrong if you purchase your kitchen knives from a reputable brand, such as Forschner, Dexter, JA Henckels, or Wusthof kitchen knives; but reading objective evaluations from other consumers and experts, can be extremely helpful.

    Buying the right kitchen knife actually involves a lot of different decisions, not the least of which is choosing between a cooking knife that is "forged" versus one that is "stamped". If price is no object, then a forged knife would probably be the preferred choice. Forged chefs knives are generally considered sturdier than stamped knives, but the question is -- are they always worth the extra money? The answer is a definitive, "not always". According to Consumer Reports, "Although the top-rated knives are forged, stamped knives are capable of very good performance." The non-profit consumer education organization points out that stamped knives do not have a bolster and a heel, which do add value to the user experience; but those features probably wouldn't be missed by most people. Visit their web site for a good "crash course" in understanding knife terminology and tips on efficient use and care of kitchen knives.

    The four types of knives that Consumer Reports recommends having on hand in a well-equipped home kitchen are a chef's knife, a slicer, a utility knife, and a parer. For home chefs who like to have a kitchen knife for every purpose, there are specialty food preparation knives made for virtually every task in the kitchen. For example, in addition to the multi-purpose chef's knife and carving knife, you can also buy kitchen knives specifically designed for slicing bread, cheese, ham, or fish (fillet knives). There are also shell fish knives, which are more commonly referred to as "clam knives", "oyster knives", or "scallop knives". For cooks looking for a multi-purpose kitchen knife that slices, dices, and minces, a Santuko knife might be a the perfect supplement to a home cutlery supply.

    As far as top brand names for the best chef knives and kitchen knives, the Wusthof classic seemed to be the favorite of expert reviewers, although the RH Forschner by Victorinox Fibrox was deemed the best budget knife set. Among the runners up for best kitchen knives were the Henckels Twin Professional "S" and the Henckels Four Star. Henckels Four Star series is one of the most popular lines of kitchen knives on the market, and includes a wide range of carvers, cleavers, boning knives, peeling knives, and steak knives. The Henckels Pro S series also features virtually every kitchen knife imaginable, including sandwich knives, fillet knives, flexible slicers, hollow edge slicers, and serrated utility knives.

    It pays to read kitchen knives reviews, like the ones online at, but if you stick with well-known brand names, such as Victorinox, Forschner, Henckels knives, and Wusthof, you will rarely be disappointed.
