It's a start, towards the 100 or so that you need.

So what's the difference between a gut hook and a strap (or seatbelt) cutter? To me, they are more or less the same thing, aside from the fact that one is used typically on knives marketed to hunters, and the latter on knives marketed to first responders. And the tool can be used for both tasks (aside from those like my Eickhorn where it's mounted in a cutout in the handle as a fixed cutter (basically a section of snap off blade wedged between the liner and handle) And on many knives, they aren't on the spine, but a secondary blade.

I have read their knife reviews and usually about ones I've never heard of. As for the 21 terms it was not intended to be a complete book. If any body there is even fully trained on knives? A couple of sites that show up on my phone either say's sign in for a price "no way" or directs you to Amazon for more info. As for this as usual I will do a copy and paste to Word Pad and save for future reference.
