'Knife Junkie' Video: 10 Blade Types

Watch as Zacherl and Green demonstrate and dissect 10 common blade types.

By far most informative and simple video description about 10 knives type. :)

So Dude 2 didn’t say anything, and you just went through knives lightly? Cmon.

Too much Gerber for me. Bark River? A simple Mora? Busse? Swamprat? Fallkniven? No this about the worst video on the internet about knives. On You Tube there are far better vids available.

How much longer is GearJunkie going to milk this knife subject? I understand it’s a popular item for some but please a bit of variety of gear would help to keep the retention of other regular readers that find knifes kind of a boring childish obsession :-)

This is a great video. Short, informative and to the point.

G-Dog, your comment is what’s childish. There’s plenty of online content to keep you entertained if not gearjunkie -sheesh.

I’m a fan of the site, and I can understand gearjunkie’s need for sponsorship dollars. Most of the time it doesn’t interfere with content— in this case, it surely does. There are dozens of major knife manufacturers out there, and Gerber’s knives are mediocre at best (in terms of steel quality, fit & finish, and design). If you’re looking for representative knives, try including more Benchmade, spyderco, Leatherman, or even Kershaw. This kind of blatantly subsidized video is a blow to your ethos. If you want to maintain your reputation as an unbiased review blog, you shouldn’t pass off this Gerber advertisement as a informative video.

Nice video and really nice Knives. I had one such kershaw knivesin my collection of knives.

Good video but I was hoping it would showcase Blade types instead of Knife styles . Maybe an idea for the future ?

Gr8 video and excellent! Love Gerber knives!

Nice artistic camera angles and close ups. But nearly useless in my opinion, unless of course as a Gerber advertisement. Do one on blade shapes and types for specific tasks and purposes with a follow up on knife sharpening. That might be worthwhile.
