    The Triple Aught Design (TAD) Hawk Dauntless Midtech Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Dec 4, 2017
    Today, we're going to look at a shining Gem of a pocketknife, the TAD Hawk Dauntless Midtech. With most of the joys of the Dauntless MK4, some serious improvements, and the weird-yet-compelling design features that only the Hawks can bring, this is the best Dauntless yet, and a wonderful piece for your collection.

    We showed off the amazingly cheap but well made knives offered by gearbest.com in an earlier, non sponsored video - it must have worked well for that site as they now offered us sponsorship.

    They sent is eight folding knives we picked, and then we went ahead and build what probably is the world's first folding knife jousting machine...

    A machine that can clash blade against blade so hard even the best folders in the world will suffer. Watch how the products (all of them under 16 € end user price) fare against this most brutal machine.

    The finale will be on the 10th of Dec., 2017. Stay tuned, and leave us your best bet in the comments!

    Published on Dec 9, 2017
    These three knives from the recently reborn "Camillus" brand, have a very nice G&G Hawk Design, but are implemented relatively poorly. So, although they're a great idea, in practice? Eh.

    The Manix 2 is a great knife, with a not-so-great disassembly process. But we get through it. Together.

    Also, note that Spyderco has now changed their warranty policy so that disassembly is A-OK and Red-Loctite is banished. For more information: https://youtu.be/Ed0kzmsz0Qs

    The Spyderco Manix 2 Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Dec 19, 2017
    The Spyderco Manix 2 is a great knife, with great ergos, a great blade, and on the whole, it's one of the best cutting tools out there. It's a bit big, and it's perhaps not the best choice for EDC if you don't plan to do a lot of cutting, but it's a serious cutting tool, and a solid gem.

    Published on Dec 24, 2017
    The Rike 1508S is a great knife, with a nice action in a compact, integral frame. It's a bit pricy, though, and way too thick behind the edge, but if they fixed those issues, this could easily be a gem.

    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Dec 30, 2017
    Today, we're going to take a look at the Arcform Slimfoot, which is very nicely manufactured and absolutely beautiful. Sadly, it's also pricy, host to a huge number of Knife-Gripe featured issues, and entertainingly, very thick. So, although it's a beautiful knife, and a great choice for Instagram, as a functional piece, for me, it's 10 pounds of "nope" in a five pound bag.

    How to disassemble and maintain the Spyderco Vallotton Pocketknife
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jan 4, 2018
    The Spyderco Valloton is a knife with a lot of screws, but ultimately, it's not too tricky to take down. Here, we do a bit of knife-rescue 911 to prevent the spread of rust, but mostly, it's smooth sailing.

    Also, note that Spyderco has now changed their warranty policy so that disassembly is A-OK and Red-Loctite is banished. For more information: https://youtu.be/Ed0kzmsz0Qs

    The ADV Pocket Butcher Knife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jan 15, 2018
    The ADV Pocket Butcher is a very interesting fusion of traditional design with modern knifemaking. It's nicely made, absolutely unique, and a pretty decent cutting tool. But it's also a bit big, a bit pointy and sharp, and kind of absurd in the pocket.

    At the end of the day, it's not the most practical blade ever, but it's unquestionably a neat idea, and it bodes well for blades to come.
