Got a nice knife? Let's see it.

Here are two of my sweetest, a SOG Bowie no longer available. And a Dawson Dagger.

My favorite fixed blade is a Benchmade Delta Raider - also discontinued, although I don't know why they would stop offering such a great knife.

Cheapy Japanese knife, but cool to me!

Well I made this one. My first knife actually. Every part and piece you see, except the screws.


Some more I made



My first and second Auto during construction. I sadly quit making after I finished these.

This one is gorgeous. What would it take you to get back into crafting knives and making me one of these?

The US has some superb cutlers.... in fact, my opinion hasn't changed since the last few knife threads.

I guess not much has changed since then....

Anyway, I recently got this lovely neck knife in ATS34 and G10 from an Aussie maker called John Foxwell. Fit, finish and comfort are faultless, and I'm embarrassed to post how cheap it was for a custom.



And, I've got this on the way from a UK custom maker called Stuart Mitchell... damasteel and mammoth ivory, a leaving present from my old team.





I had a few spare quid so I got a matching beater done in RWL34/G10.

He makes custom matching knives for Purdey and Holland and Holland.... so he's a bit good then.

However, I'm in England, so in my pocket everyday is a little custom Victorinox Lumberjack in Alox by SwissBianco.

+1 on Benchmade. I carry one daily.

I used to have a Spike in full auto (like the pic above) but got wary in CA. Got an Elischewicz (sp?) and promptly lost it. Replaced them with others. Will try to post a pic in a bit.

I actually have that Mel Pardue in auto and standard. I carry them both. If you're not a gang banger, you can carry them in CA with out too much worry...

one of my favorites... carried one for about 6 years. It's worn and slow but still a favorite.

I'll have to find my camera
