This was a long anticipated review of a series of reviews, of the EXACT same knife, the Hardcore Hardware BFK-01. I provide an introduction of the knife, followed by a fast paced set of testing events, then conclude the video with my final thoughts of the HHA BFK 01.
DETAILED TESTING BREAKDOWN AND SYNOPSIS:
SERIES OF 3 AGGRESSIVE TESTING PHASES WERE USED
PHASE 1: SURVIVAL AND BUSHCRAFT RELATED — LIGHT TO MODERATE USAGE
THIS TESTING PHASE WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE KNIFES ABILITY TO PERFORM TO CHOP LIVE WOOD AND DEAD WOOD — REASONS BEING THE LIVE WOOD FOR SHELTER CREATION AND THE DEAD WOOD FOR FIRE MAKING IN A SURVIVAL SITUATION.
PHASE 2: HAMMERING AND PRYING — MODERATE TO HEAVY USAGE
THIS NEXT PHASE OF TESTING WAS USED TO DETERMINE HOW THE KNIFE WOULD HANDLE IN A MORE STRESSFUL SITUATION WHERE ROUGHER USE WOULD BE REQUIRED — SIMILAR TO MORE OF A TACTICAL SITUATION WITH HAVING TO HAMMER OR BREAK INTO AN OBJECT OR STRUCTURE.
PHASE 3: PIERCING AND RIPPING — HEAVY TO EXTREME USE
THIS FINAL PHASE OF TESTING WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE KNIVES OVERALL PIERCING INTEGRITY AND SAWBACK CAPABILITIES — THIS IS SITUATION WAS DESIGNED AROUND THE CONCEPT OF TEARING IN OR OUT OF A LIGHT STRUCTURE OR AIRPLANE FUSELAGE IN A POSSIBLE COMBATIVE SITUATION.
