U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- I write a Christmas List article every year for the Knife Connoisseur in your life for AmmoLand News. If you don’t know what to buy your honey this year and he is an outdoorsman, don’t panic. All outdoorsmen use a knife, make those multiple knives, so they will be easy to buy for. But, you do have to purchase the correct design that they favor. If you’re a wise shopper you don’t necessarily have to spend that much. As you know, I love knives and write a weekly Knife Product Review for AmmoLand.

When I was a kid there weren’t but about five major knife companies, at least as far as I knew of. Now, ha, there are hundreds and more joining the ranks every month. And to top that off, there are more designs on the market now than ever before. Skinning knives, caping knives, boning knives, tactical, survival knives, and the list goes on. So I by no means will be able to cover all the cool knives I’ve tested but I’ll hit the highlights. Well, let’s get started.
