This year's last issue of Vapentidningen is on it's way out in stores at this moment. No.9 - 2018 contains two articles from yours truly about; budget fixed blade knives with price tags under 50 Swedish Korna (about 5 Euros) and also a smaller article on the Ruike Trekker LD43 Rescue Knife. Inside the same mag we also recommend you take a look at interesting articles like; Sauer 100 Fieldshoot (Fredrik Odebring), Glock 19x (Henrik Kalling) and a big test of rifle bags (Johan Ljungné).
The budget knife review is 3 pages long and cover 11 different knives. Basically I just got all fixed blades I could find in stores under 50 SEK and put them to the test. Of-course you can make really nice bargains also on the used market, but in this test we focus on new knives found in Sweden. In this group of test knives we could find highs and lows, and it's great to see that you don't need a thick wallet to be able to carve, hunt and explore in a nice manor.
In the smaller article on the Ruike Trekker LD43 Rescue Knife you get to meet a nice and robust EDC made in China.
We want to take this opportunity to thank for yet another nice magazine year with Vapentidningen. A big warm Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all readers and also to the editorial office of Vapentidningen. We look forward to an inspiring Spring covering for-instance; Hultafor's Premium Axes, Casström Lars Fält Knife and much more.
Nice reading dear friends!
