OK, slight detour from knives: Xring, that's a damn fine photo of your knife. How did you light it?

In knife content, I just discovered that my local "salvage" store (they buy mostly odd lots, rejects, weird stuff, mostly made in China) had a bucket full of seconds IMACASA machettes for $9. Made in El Salvador. So I picked one up. The thing rings like a large circular saw blade, and is truly tough steel - it doesn't cut real well on the belt grinder.

I may go back and pick up a couple just for the material - a guy could cut 6 or 8 knife blanks out of one machette.

Allow me to introduce you to a knife I found last year. The Svord Peasant knife. 10-14 bux a copy, multiple colors. Great steel, works like a fuckin charm. My new favorite folding woods knife I think.


Here it is beside a SOG Trident fullsize.








Fuckin love this shit.

My dad and I shared a long running interest in knives. On one of our road trips to a show I was distracted by the spring assisted Bokers you see below. After a bit of negotiating we made a deal for the pair you see and the both spent a number of years in our separate collections. After dad's passing mom let me have his knife and I have always been grateful for the memories of the time we shared wandering around countless shows and shops.

Thanks Kace

eta: review on knifecenter gives a "pro" for lock? Is this a liner lock knife too? I thought (from the picture) it would be a simple folder... if a liner lock=bonus!

Combo or plain blade?

I am shopping for a new pocket folder EDC knife and am debating with myself whether to get a plain blade or combo with a serrated section. My last several knives used for this purpose had tanto combo blades and I like the practicality of combo blades, but my mind keeps suggesting to try a plain blade. I'm leaning strongly to a combo blade, but other opinions welcomed. What do you prefer?

Oh, this one (combo or plain) is at the top of my current list (Benchmade 581 Barrage with AXIS Assist locking mechanism):

I used to lean toward partially serrated but it's really only good for cutting large rope fast at the expense of forfeiting a section of blade I use much more often.

This is a totally legit knife to call a "Folding Mora" Its practical, inexpensive and no bullshit. The lock is remarkably secure. My hand would have to come completely off the knife for it to close enough to get my fingers. The "lock" is entirely sufficient.
