I guess I don't understand what this guy is trying to prove with these impact tests he's putting these knives through. They don't seem to be realistic scenarios of what I would consider knife usage. The other tests seem to be good scenarios, but the impact?
I think it's a legit test...
You cant see the need to chop something? :uhh:
To chop something in the field? Yeah I can see the need for that. But only having a GB/Yarborough and a 3 lb hammer available as tools to do said chopping isn't very realistic. If additional tools such as a hammer are available, then it seems more likely there would be a hatchet/ax/maul handy. That's why I question the need for that particular test to prove the toughness of a knife, any knife.
Not questioning the knife failed the test, just wondering how this particular test translates into a real world scenario.
