    I have a SnG Gen I from the VERY first run #34 Tanto

    and a SnG Gen V tanto

    There were definatly some improvments: Thicker Ti Lock side, Larger stronger pivot hardware, and a device that stops the lock bar from getting bent the wrong way.

    For me AR's and GB's are way too bulky, I would like an SmF though.

    For your first go with the SnG its midsized and should be slightly easier to find then the SmF

    try www.tadgear.com

    If your tossed between the two a more fair comparison should be between an SMF and an AR/GB. the Sng is smaller and my favorite but an AR is about the same lenth as an SMF but much thicker. here are a couple shots of mine however i don't have a full size AR but tommorow i can give you a picture of my cut Modified AR "embryo" against an sng.

    I am going to have to say go AR. It is heavy and big and if you don't have a belt sheath for it then it may become cumbersome indeed as a pocket carry. If you plan to carry it for a particular reason like HEAVY cutting the I would go AR. If it is your EDC then I would go SNG. I EDC a GB and wouldn't change that for the world. So you would have to decide at that point.

    by the way...all Striders are built like a TANK in my humble opinion...

    Hmm i dont my mind about size. I can EDC the knife in my bag. But if you said its for heavy cutting, i think the AR is a nice score for me. I need the knife that i can use for whole of my life. But the flamed stripped at the back of SnG is still haunted me.

    This is the deal about buying a knife...in my eyes...

    1. Get one that fits what you plan to do with it.
    2. Get one that fits HOW you plan to carry it.
    3. Get one that fits your hand.

    The SNG and AR are 2 different animals. The SNG will do tasks that the AR will do just as well but the AR is heavier and more bulky so it will most likely be able to handle heavy tasks better. The SNG could probably do the same but then again it is a smaller handle and blade which brings me back to the 1-3 above. You gotta get what matches YOU best...GOOD LUCK and welcome to STRIDER-dom. It is a slippery slope...just wait...you will buy the other VERY soon...

    That thread attached to this one will cause some problems here at CPF. Mark my words.

    Just for everyone sake I will say that I support Mick and the Strider crew 100%. Anyone that smears someone like that thread is not honorable in my book.

    As a newbie here I apologize for me sudden remarks.

    If your interested in knife politics maybe thats a good read over at blade forums. If you intersted in picking up a badass blade that will treat you well with a great warrenty grab a strider. BTW the SMF/SNG and the AR/GB series are all built like tanks. The GB/AR series just happen to be bigger tougher tanks.

    here are a few pictures of my AR and my SNG. Please note that my AR has been modified and is shorter than a regular AR/GB both handle and blade however the thickness has not changed so it should give you an idea. The regular AR is more the length of the SMF were as i'm comparing an SNG and the Modifed AR Embryo. I'm going to agree with what has already been said. If you looking for pocket EDC get either an SNG or an SMF (bigger hands get the SMF small hands get the SNG), if you looking for a larger knife for your bag or have big pockets get the AR/GB.

    I dont mind anything what is Mick has been done before. I will support him as long as he produce a great knives. Normally people will talking bad about us when we done a good thing.
    Thanks knifebright for the pic now i can see the comparison. I will go for AR Ranger Green. In the future if i need the smaller knife i will get a PT. It's have a same design as a SMF/SNG but smallest size

    Here's a question.... why when you go to Striderknives.com, is there no information about their knives???

    You click on the folders section, then click on a knife, and there is a picture but zero other information besides the price.

    What's up with that????

    SnG.


    Top to bottom: Delica 3, SnG, Modded AR (scales contoured).


    Same as above.


    Remember the episode from Gilligan's Island where they found some radioactive vegetable seeds and grew 6' carrots? The AR must have been grown on Gilligan's Island too, because its gigantic. It can be carried, but its more of a novelty carry IMO. A serious workhorse, no doubt, but goofy big.

    cheers

    I have carried the AR for years. I just got an SMF months ago and it is much lighter with the same blade size with the plus of a frame lock. Much preferred for pocket carry. I think that you will be disappointed with the PT. It is too small for average sized hands. Stick with an AR/GB, SnG or SMF. I know the SMF is priced pretty high. There is nothing whatsoever wrong with the AR/GB series, they are superb knives. Even used, you will have a great knife. Mick and Duane at Strider will stand behind every piece they make. Whatever you read about the owners, the ethics of the individuals are unmatched when it comes to their products.

    Well, Here is the story on my SMF. When closed, the blade closes half way though the lanyard hole. If you ran a lanyard in the hole, it would be cut by the blade.

    I showed it to a Strider rep at a recent knife show and he shrugs his shoulders, and said "we'll fix it, send it in and enclose $15.00 for return shipping." What a joke.

    I did not bother to send it in. I will be giving it to someone going to Iraq, with the defect warning.

    Frankly, Their knives are all right, nothing special. like my Emerson's better.

    And, to top it off, a Strider collector tells me that: "Oh, all of them are like that." I just laughed.

    How they could miss this is beyond belief.

    Best,

    RL

    ya the laynard whole will cut the lanyard if you put it through both holes. here is the faq on this.

    Will the blade on the AR/GB, SMF, or SnG cut my lanyard when closed?
    The lanyard should go through only one side of the knife (G10 or Ti), if you tie your lanyard through both holes there is the possibility that you will cut the lanyard.
