I’ve reviewed a couple of older SnG’s – the Generation 1 SnG and the Generation 2 SnG, and now I’ve got one of the newer double gunner grip models with Hinderer Lock Stabilizer. Much improvements offered in these newer models, even if they aren’t numbered!
Strider Knives - Knife Reviews
Strider Knives is an American owned and operated Company, whose goal is the evolution of Problem Solving Tools. No-nonsense high-speed tools for Hardcore Individuals is their promise, and they are indeed keeping it! Some say Striders are overpriced, but some say they are just overbuilt. Perhaps it is a bit of both, but in the end they make a fantastic knife that can stand up to anything.
Using only the finest materials, and latest technology, Strider Knives continues to set the pace in cutting geometry, function and durability. They provide a large number of knives to military personnel and are heavily involved in the knife community as participants in the forums. Strider was started by Mick Strider and Dwayne Dwyer, who both also make custom knives in addition to the large line of production knives they produce.

This Strider DDC (Dwayne Dwyer Custom) SMF Custom is the first Strider Custom I have ever owned, and it is one HELL of a knife. Without a doubt the best quality Strider that I’ve ever owned, easily better quality than any of the production peices I’ve had. Given the price tag on the peice, this level of quality should be expected, however.
Theres nothing like a custom Mick Strider RC folder to fill your palms when you need a no nonsense knife to peel potatoes, shave wood for kindling, dig a hole or protect yourself. This Mick Strider Custom (MSC) RC folder is a fanastic all-purpose tactical utility folder that does it all.
The Strider GB is basically the same as the Strider AR, with the only difference being that it is a tanto blade instead of a spearpoint. This particular example of the GB has thinner liners than the older AR that I had, as Strider thinned them out in later releases. The balance is probably a bit better on the thin linered versions, but they don’t seem quite as solid – perhaps that’s just in my head.
Strider’s AR is probably one of the nicest balanced large tactical folders on the market, and that’s saying a lot. A lot of people consider Strider knives overpriced and underperforming, but I beg to differ. The AR might not be the best push-cut or slicing knife in the market, but it feels great in the hand, and like most Striders, allows you to choke up on it.
The Generation 2 Spearpoint from Strider was available in a Stonewash finish on the blade and the framelock. Strider never made too many of these after this, as it seems to be less popular amongst the tactical crowd. I really like the way the stonewash looks and keeps it looking unique amongst all the other Striders out there.
This is the first strider I ever owned, and I love it! I purchased this one second hand from a guy named LaBella… he’s pretty famous on the forums, and jerzeedevil.com specifically. This one arrived in mint Striderfied condition, with the usual scuffs, and it has started a bit of a Strider addiction.
