Anyone know more about Frost knives?
I've always been on the search for the ultimate combat/survival knife for my taste and have collected alot of knives over the years from Bucks to Benchmade's, Kbar's to TOPS and still haven't found the perfect one with the way the handle fits my hand and the blade fits me for use in everything from cutting rope, branches and vines, to filleting a fish and cleaning game. I've found I like micarta handles the most for the way they can be shaped and the texture is when beadblasted. There also impervious to more things than other materials. In blades I've come to appreciate the better stainless steels with a good blend of carbon, chromium and various alloys for good edge retention while providing corrosion resistance. 154cm, ATS34, AUS8 and 440C are commonly used and very good.
I'm still on the look out and like collecting more knives either way. This is my next purchase and I'm looking at it for those reasons. I've seen a few different models at shows and their craftsmanship seems top notch and the reputation they acquired is right there with it. They cryo their blades too for stress relief.
It may be a good choice for others here too.
If anyone's looking for something bigger too.

I've had a couple over the years and bought them for there exotic stylings but that's about as far as they go.
They commonly use cheap, heavy on the chromium stainless steel and more fancy than functional handle materials.
I had one that looked great, but the blade bent like a wave using it one time. I ended giving it to an old friend not too long ago. I'm sure from knowing how he takes care of stuff it won't last too long.
That is Frost Cutlery and not Frosts of Sweden. I don't know anything about Frosts of Sweden other than that they make knives.
I meant Frosts from Sweden...
you cannot get enough of them
variation issued to the swedish army
cheapest Ive them is 7 British Pound Sterling
no survival instructor I know or have heard of disses the knife
this sweidhs knife has been used to kill a sweidhs MP succesfully
unlike your $350 custom knife you can beast this blade w/t feeling guilty
All in all I highly recommend purchasing a couple, make your friends happy too
You will never regret spending money on one, hey I even use them for everyday cooking!
Good thought. I typically spray down a wet knife with WD-40 do displace the water, then wipe that off and put gun oil on it. Cant beat CLP.CLP is pretty good for that actually.
GO with teh mora, From what I heard it is superior to teh similar Frost Clipper, could say why, no persoal expereince.
Dont know where to get them in Poland, but plenty of british site ship internationally.
can anybody of the guys around here who have knowledge and experience about knifes tell me what the pros and cons of a tanto blade are?
To me it looks like a dagger type knife would be better for stabbing or am i wrong?
Are tanto knifes useful in combat?
Glad to be of help Kamarian, everyone on this planet needs a few good knives in the toolbox.
If you like the CRKT and it's styling, you might give a look at Benchmade's Snody knives. There a similar style and use 154cm steel and G10 for the handle.
I have one of their Nimravus and it's an excellent knife for many different purposes too.

The nice thing about a tanto blade is that you can work each edge angle really well while sharpening and get each one perfect.
As far as useful for combat, it's a knife blade and this one was made for it.
You can kill someone easy enough with a broken bottle, I think a nice Tanto would more than hurt their feelings.
wouldnt cut through clothes (like leatherjackets or something like that) as good as a dagger or a drop point blade while stabbing...
I know that you can ruin somebodys day with any knife - im just interested in which one could ruin it more effectively
