I had a small Gerber that I could open with my weak hand very quickly, after some practice. Carried that Gerber for years in my left pocket. Then I decided that I needed something a little larger which is why I ended up with the Kershaw. I just always reach to my left pocket for my knife (old guy set in his ways).

I went back about 40 pages in Shiny Things and couldn't find it. Maybe it's further back than that. The search engine on this site didn't help, nor did my cursory search of advrider on google. Maybe we ought to start a new one. BTW, there are some great old moribund threads on many topics of interest to the asylum, lots of stuff covered that is getting rehashed periodically.

Maybe bump one of these up. http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...w=1093&bih=474
I appreciated the brief foray into axes and hatchets here. It would be nice to have an active thread.

Nah, more of a corset/yoni fetish from what I can tell. The craftsmanship is superb, as is the artistic vision.

on most every quality folder, there are holes on both sides of the handle for left or right carry, as said some even allow (also) tip up or tip down carry as well as right or left. Just look at the handles and see if there are holes on both side and ends of the knife handle.

I'm sure it's superb, but it rather leaves me wondering why. I guess it's more art than knife and the tool is the vehicle for the art. There's a lot going on in that example, that's for sure.

Question for the experts: in preparation for moving, I ran across two Gerber knives I carried way back in the day when I was in the army. One is a Gerber BMF (not my photo):



And the other is a Gerber Mark II (Not my photo):



They are both heavily corroded and rusty. I assume its from being stored in my humid basement all these years in a cloth sheath. What is the best way to clean these knives up? The BMF I will likely get rid of but the Mark II has some sentimental value for me.

This is what the Mark II looks like right now:



Thanks

600 grit sandpaper, steel wool, a little oil, and a lot of elbow grease.

Or send it to me and I'll clean it up for you. Ask EG about my work.
