Make With The Stabby...

Check out the *sweet* knife I got to review over at Across The Editor's Desk:

Every once in a while, you see a piece of gear that really catches your eye. It might be a different color, it might be an innovative design or it might just strike you as a well-made piece of kit.

The Vulture Equipment Works Cholera fixed-blade knife is definitely in the latter category. Featuring a serious 3/16-inch thick blade 5.5 inches long and an overall length of 10 inches, the Cholera—named for the disease that lives in the stomach of a vulture, of course—is ready for pretty much any task you might ask. Whether skinning a game animal or whittling a spear, the Cholera is more than up to the task. 
Forget Rambo. This is the real deal in survival knives, folks. This thing is sharp as all get out, really sturdy, comes with a sheath and fire-starter, and is just generally a badass chunky of stabby. It feels good in the hands, it has a great balance; this is just an excellent overall knife.

All this and it's made in the USA, too - this is the real deal, folks.

That is all.

Am I the only one who finds this tool unfortunately named?

Cholera? Like the disease?

I think of it as playfully disturbing.

Does it have a thing that goes up? It looks black and scary, so it must be tactical. Okay, I kid.

I do however wish that companies like this, or whomever; made a pocket sized sharpening steel for these. A good quality knife that should last for years and years needs an occasional sharpening and using a steel would be preferable than a whole whetstone sharpening.

Oh well, they never ask me to review these things and most people forget the fundamentals of knife care. Just saying.

Thanks for the review Jay.
