Bestech Texel – A Tale of Two Knives

What do you get when a firefighter turns knife collector, and THEN turns knife designer? Well, alot of things. You get custom, midtech, and production designs, for starters! Bestech took care of producing the Progeny for Adam Purvis, and in turn, released a budget knife based on his designs named the Texel.

Shoutout to Wes @ Bestech, Apex Passaround and most importantly… YOU for watching 🙂

Pocket Dump Time! November 2019

It’s the 1st edition of the DCS Pocket Dump! Well it seems this guy came out earlier than intended, but in any case, here you have it 🙂 How embarrassing that this is only my first Pocket dump video on the channel!

Of course, some stuff includes a neat little story… Continue reading “Pocket Dump Time! November 2019”

Blade Buffet aka the DCS Knife Party! Nov 2019

Whats up guys – man I gotta say it’s a good time to be working on the channel. I have so much material coming up that I wanted to take a moment and showcase some of the knives you will be seeing in upcoming videos. Check out the offerings from Ganzo, Buck, Protech, Monterey Bay Knives, SOG, and some additional banter from yours truly, of course =)

DLT Trading Exclusive Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight in M390

Question: Considering all of the past/currently released versions, what is your favorite configuration of the Para 3? Being a huge Para 3 fan, Spyderco had set the bar pretty high with an excellent knife that took much of its design cues from the iconic Paramilitary 2.

They’ve managed to shave off even more weight and address some small issues by taking things a step further and releasing a lightweight version of the Para 3, sporting BD1N steel and FRN handles…. but I wasn’t about to pick one up.

Why? Because I was interested in picking up one of the spring runs or even a limited production version for a little more money, with better steel.

And POOF! DLT Trading swoops in to save the day with this Crimson FRN/M390 limited production! Folks, I can’t stress this enough – DLT Trading ROCKS. If you have a chance, check them out and place an order through them. They accept Paypal and process/ship their knives LIGHTNING fast! …so now that we have that out of the way, an important question remains: WAS THIS WORTH THE WAIT? Check out the video below and find out 😉

SOG Terminus XR – Wait… What?!?!?

While they’ve done a fantastic job on their backpacks and collaborations (watches, etc.), SOG has been a bit lackluster when it comes to their multi-tools and folding knives, which have largely been eclipsed by a market that is now saturated with both budget and higher end production knives that offer an exceptions value to performance ratio. That is… until now.

Possibly. Maybe? Perhaps…

SOG’s XR line has sought to prove that the company still has a few ace’s up their sleeve, and the Terminus XR seems to be no exception. Check out the review to see what I think of the carbon fiber model, as well as Continue reading “SOG Terminus XR – Wait… What?!?!?”
