Jeo-Tec #7 Field Knife
« on: May 25, 2018, 06:57:25 PM »


I have used this blade for the past 3 months or so and made this write up that was published somewhere else. My review is too long and contains too many pictures to be shared here in its original form. So, I'll provide a link to my review ...

Nice review, thanks for linking to it.

I've looked at several Jeo-Tec knives in the past year or so - the #7 in particular, along with the #19, #21 and #31 - but most of their sheath options are dreadful which makes them a nonstarter for me.  Shame too as they seem well designed for the task at hand and don't cost you a mortgage payment to buy.

Like lgm, I'd never heard of them either. :P   I didn't get a chance to read the link until today, but that was a great review, SB!  :thumbsup:    Not exactly what I'd pick, but I am old & crochety and have my own preferences when it comes to 'general' field-knife design.  This knife appears to be the real deal for someone looking for a well made and designed survival-type knife that could take on almost everything that you'd throw at it......and for a price that tempts even me. :shrug:

I liked the review.  Looks like a well rounded knife, suitable for a variety of outdoor tasks.  I prefer a knife to not have a secondary bevel though.

cute - looks like a stainless ESEE-6 with less blocky scales.

Looks to be a pretty good production knife with lots of versatility. They are a brand I never heard of until this post so it was an interesting review for me.  Good review too Switchblade.  Thanks.

  Very well written review,  however, I would have gotten more out of it had it been done using American measurements,  yes, I know I'm old fashioned, but I am rather proud of being American and tend to reject those types of changes in our culture, I'm also aware that you're probably in a profession that uses metric measurement daily,  but it may be good whenever writing for an American audience to remember that many people who buy and use outdoor knives tend to be blue collar American working class folks who find it easier or are more used to measuring in inches, feet, and yards.

  But, it's not just you, LOL, I also like to cook and it really irks me to look up a recipe only to find the measurements given in drams and grams, that might be ok in Canada or Australia, but doesn't play well for many of us here in the US who have kitchen tools that are in ounces, cups, and tablespoons.

  The knife pictured does look to be well made and have clean lines, I've had no experience with this specific knife or the brand, but I have had experience with the same type of scalloped textured scales on similar styled knives and found them to have a very short comfort range.
  I've also had experience with knives made of N690co, while they were pretty much rust resistant and easy to keep looking good, they were not easy make a fine edge on, I've also had knives made by Fallkniven and Al Mar made of VG-10 that didn't display the sharpening difficulties that I had with knives made from N690.

 Thanks for sharing the review.
