    Trent Knife and Tool (TKT) “Allen Field Knife” Review (pic heavy)

    I’m on holiday so not used mine yet but my twopence on bushcraft knives is that they are a personal preference. Jimping takes away part of the spine that can be used for scraping wood for tinder and for ferro rod striking. Using the spine further away from the handle makes it less controlable...
