    The Legend: Gerber's New $700 Hunting Knife

    By The Editors

    http://ak.c.ooyala.com/84YzMxazr2JPnWfwfMq-TADJPaiRBgd5/AZ2ZgMjz0LFGHCPn4xMDoxOjA4MTsiGN

    Gerber's big knife for 2014 is made out of a solid piece of new steel called S35VN. This means the blade should hold its edge longer and be more resistant to corrosion. The Legend comes with a well-built leather sheath that features a solid safety strap. But these features are going to cost you ... a lot. The knife will retail for about $700.

For 2014, Ruger is introducing a rimfire .22 version with a variety of features that include a rotary magazine,  a fiber optic front site, a good trigger, and interchangeable butts. The gun comes in a standard version (shown in the video) and a compact version.

    The Swedish Morakniv is as sharp as a razor. The clip-point blade is anodized to prevent rusting and the handle is made of injection-molded polypropylene and provides a positive grip. It comes with a sturdy sheath and an incredible price of only $80. We dare you to find a better all-around knife for the money.

    A Long Range Pheasant Load: Winchester Rooster XR

    By The Editors

    http://ak.c.ooyala.com/d0OTN5ajpFwc9b4te2Tvl2uceVHKyGtw/Ut_HKthATH4eww8X4xMDoxOjA4MTsiGN

    The new Winchester Rooster XR uses the same technology as the Long Beard load announced late last year. Here's how it works: the resin fills in the gaps between the pellets. When the shell ignites, the resin fractures. This process creates a tighter shooting shotshell and more pellets on target, according to Winchester.

    From what we've seen, the technology it works.

    By The Editors

    http://ak.c.ooyala.com/dpMncwazoBYCEgrI-uH-hKeoK3djwakc/PE3O6Z9ojHeNSk7H4xMDoxOjA4MTsiGN

    Benchmade surveyed backcountry hunters to come up with the designs for their new HUNT Series. The series includes 8 different knives (both fixed blades and folders) with blades forged in CPM S30V steel. This is a powdered steel known for edge retention, an attribute critical for hunters trekking off the grid. The folders in this line utilize the classic Benchmade axis lock system, which slides a safety bolt into place.

    New Long-Range Rifle: Weatherby Terramark RC

    By David E. Petzal

    http://ak.c.ooyala.com/Q3NnQwazpM6B13QQbCPhzhdtXpZeNoyR/DLOokYc8UKM-fB9H4xMDoxOjA4MTsiGN

    As the long-range frenzy continues, we should not forget that Weatherby has been specializing in rifles for extreme distances ever since the company was founded, and I mean hunting rifles, not tactical guns. Newest in their lineup is the Terramark RC, a Mark V with a special earth-tone camo stock and dirt-colored (sort of) metal finish on the receiver and fluted barrel.
