SOG has some great new fixed blades. Knives Illustrated regular contributor Jim Cobb gives us a close look at the Altair FX, Aegis FX, and the Recondo FX. Three knives, three different sizes, all solid performers. If you’re looking for an EDC fixed blade, a trail knife or a tactical blade, one of these no-nonsense models will be worth a look.
Helle of Norway has some very impressive wood-handled knives. Take a look at the company’s Nipa and Raud folders. Among their fixed blades are the Nord and the Temagami 14C28N, an updated version of Suriviorman Les Stroud’s knife. For EDC or bushcraft, these knives can get it done in style.
A.G. Russell has reintroduced its Sailor’s Knife as the SeaMaster 2.0. This updated model features a partially serrated sheepsfoot blade with the serrations at the front end of the blade where they belong. There’s a locking marlin spike too for dealing with stubborn knots.
