The author’s knife Fin was created by the knife master Kolomiyets Vadim Anatolyevich. Knife Fin is quite unpretentious, simple in appearance and made without any frills. There is nothing superfluous or excessively complicating the design in it.
Author Fin knife from the knife master Kolomiyets Vadim Anatolyevich, description, review and test in the field.
I would like the master to take into account this minor flaw in the future. Fin’s knife in the scabbard sits quite tight, as a result of which sometimes there are problems with removing it from the scabbard, the lanyard would really help here. In addition, the knife itself, when it is not in the scabbard, has nothing to hang, for example on a tree branch or a knot, although the need for this occurs periodically.
Some have too licked a butt that is not able to carve sparks from a flint and you have to do it with a cutting edge, which dulls it. And with some knives, the high-temperature sparks of the flint simply burn out the steel on the blade or butt.
Fin has it all right. The sharp edges of the butt allow you to protect the cutting edge from unnecessary stress and damage, easily remove the chips of the magnet bar and extract a quite acceptable sheaf of sparks from the flint rod. After this test, Fin’s boot was not damaged. Details in a short video below.
Test and test seven. Fin knife work by product.
And how will the Fin knife behave when working on products? It’s not a kitchen knife with a thin blade. The total fragility of his blade clearly implies any inconvenience in cutting. The video below shows everything. To determine the capabilities of the knife, I tried to cut the pieces as thin as possible and this was completely possible. And of course, canned food. The pluses include the fact that after all previous tests, the Fin knife was not sharpened and corrected, and in this video it appears as is.
General conclusion on the results of the tests of the author’s knife Fin.
In general, with the exception of those design flaws that are indicated above, an excellent field-working knife is a hard worker. But on picnics, Fin’s knife is unlikely to be the most popular knife, the blade is still short and too thick for comfortable work on some products, for example, when cutting various salads.
I can’t say that very quickly, but quite acceptable in time and effort, this knife can be straightened in the field on a simple ceramic.
