Today i review 2 knives, one from Gerber called the EAB lite its a small everyday carry knife. It is a foldable box cutter that weighs mere ounces and when its folded up looks like more like a money clip than a knife. This is actually a follow up about one year after carrying one of these knives for a year. Here are some stats on the Gerber EAB lite.
- Open Length: 5.10″
- Blade Length: 1.5″
- Closed Length: 2.85″
- Weight: 2.5 oz
- Handle Material: Stainless Steel
The second knife is a knife from Titan international knives. It is the closest thing that they sell to a bushcrafting knife that i could find,Titan international is a smaller producer of knives from Verona WI. They produce ,from what i can tell a semi custom knife. I think they buy the blanks and make the handles which makes them an affordable knife for the first time buyer.it appars that they do the final fit and finish on their knives.
The knife i bought from them is made out of 15N20, 1095 damascus steel, which it appears that they make a lot of their knives from. The handle is made from black micarta with brass pins.
- OA length 9″
- Blade width 1.25″
- Blade length 4.75″
- Handle length 4.25″
- Blade thickness 3/16″
- Handle thickness 3/4″
