4.0 out of 5 stars The top custom knife magazine! October 15, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is clearly the top choice in custom knife magazines, though Knife Illustrated is also a good choice. It's probably 60% custom / 40% production.
The articles are good and insightful, some very high quality color pictures, and it's generally speaking entertaining & instructive.
The 4 star only rating is due to (1) the lack of objectivity of the articles (I have *never* read a negative review), and (2) too many pictures of custom knives are in B&W. I would happily pay double the price, get half as many issues, but in a glossy, high quality paper, premium binding, etc...

I purchased the Blade subscription as a gift for a friend who is a knife and weapon enthusiast. He reads each issue several times and could not have been more pleased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half the issues don't arrive November 25, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I bought this magazine subscription for a friend who also enjoys custom knives. It's a good magazine, but about half the issues never make it to his house. I'm not sure whether this is a problem with Blade, or what.

4.0 out of 5 stars For The Knife Enthusiast June 3, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Blade magazine is for those who are a knife enthusiast and love a variety of different knives such as tactical, bushcraft, everyday carry, collectables, antiques and cutlery. The articles vary in length from about one page to multi-page articles. While there are a lot of ads it should be noted that some are very enticing and will get you to part with your money. It is like unleashing a kid in a candy store. You will see a lot of knives that you "want" but probably don't need.


+ Variety of knives discussed
+ Excellent photographs
+ Printed on quality paper


- Way too many ads. I understand that ads are a necessary evil but there are just too many.
- Some articles are too basic when you want to delve deeper into a topic.

Overall Assessment:

Blade is a good choice for hardcore knife addicts who want to read the articles, browse the ads, look at the numerous photos, compare knife specs, etc. If your knife enthusiasm doesn't go that far you may want to skip subscribing and instead pick up random issues that have an article that appeals to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars You need this mag if you're serious about knives. March 18, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
It's a great magazine. Like most publications, it has a lot of adds. I'd like to see more how too but this is a pretty good magazine to see what's out there and who's up and coming in the knife world.

After buying this subscription imagine my surprise to hear that the magazine is not available on kindle. I've pointed this out to the folks at Amazon, but I see they haven't changed the description yet.
