Gear Review: Benchmade Nimravus
by MSOnline Editor-at-Large Jesse James
Growing up, knives were a part of life. I was given a little red Swiss Army one for Christmas when I was six or seven. Since then I have carried a knife on me everywhere it is legal to do so. A knife is perhaps the most primitive tool invented by man, and has an untold number of uses. It is essential that you have at least one good utility knife in your BOB and several of various sizes at your disposal.
Why bother with a fixed

I purchased the Timber Rattler Fury Bowie knife after the purchase of such a knife was suggested to me by a reliable source. Purchased through Kennesaw Cutlery located in Georgia – it was only $9.99.
With that said – let me go ahead and say it – I know, I know – it is a cheap knife made in a foreign country. It is not a Buck, a Gerber, a Cold Steel nor a Reeves. I knew this going in and I also knew I would get some flak for even holding such a knife. So – why take a gander

Lawrence over at SurvivingTheDayAfter (yahoo group) has been on me about trying out some bowie knives from Kennesaw Cutlery. I decided to go ahead and purchase the Timber Rattler Jungle Fury you see in the pictures below.
My initial impressions of the knife are positive. Overall quality seems very good and blade is very sharp. Over the coming weeks I will put the Timber Rattler through its paces and see what happens.
While I was at the Kennesaw website – I saw the United Cutlery Edge Sawback

As I type this Monday night Amazon has the Buck Hoodlum knife on sale for about $126.00 – which is a great price. This could change in a heart beat – and often does. Anything under $150 is very good.
Check it out HERE.
When my interest first peaked in “survival” I was around 14 years old. This was in the mid-80′s between the release of the movies First Blood and Red Dawn. Survival knives began to gain popularity and there are several models I remember fondly.
Now – I am not suggesting all of these were actually very useful – just pretty cool.
Lets reminisce a bit…….
Rambo: First Blood – With a 9″ blade and images of Stallone wielding this knife in the popular movie First Blood – this knife gained tremendous popularity. The hollow handle contained a small survival kit and the back of the blade had

A while back I reviewed a Remington Sportsman Series F.A.S.T. knife and….well….received some criticism for it.
What was this criticism? Primarily its manufacturing origin of China as well as the belief that you get what you pay for. This knife is less than $20.00 and some readers posted their opinion that it will not hold up in a survival situation. They may be right. They might be wrong.
My review of the knife was based on initial contact and experience with it. I shaved some wood with it. I threw it at

A good knife is one of the most basic tools of survival. Going into a local Dick’s Sporting Goods I saw a nice looking knife called a Remington Sportsman Series F.A.S.T. Knife. At the store – it had a hunters blaze orange handle – which is not really what I wanted. I checked on Amazon and found numerous colors available. Most all customer reviews on Amazon were favorable – which was encouraging since I had not yet been able to handle one. I included the all black model in my most recent Amazon order.
My Amazon box arrived and
