With Strider Knives closing its doors what other knife makers (custom or production) can match Strider's quality and toughness?
I'm interested in suggestions for both folders and fixed blades.
Thank you for your input.
For folders, if you want toughness, as I do, I'd go with Medfords, Direwares or my personal favorite, Crusader Forge. I'm hunting for a certain Medford, have a Direware Solo V on order and just got my EDC Crusader Forge VIS-T folder back from a spa treatment. These things are beasts. They are large and heavy but I have found the CF easy to carry. These would be lifetime knives.
