Mine is black bolster, black scale, polished blade. I think the ivory is nice too, don't think any of the combos are bad.

I paid $12 at the 25th ID clothing and sales for the Buck Lite back in 86.
Carried that one daily til 94ish when I paid $18 at The Fort Lewis PX for the Benchmade. Most of my high speed low drag friends carried CQC-7s. The book "Rogue Warrior" put the Emerson's on everyone's want list. I wanted one also but just couldn't see spending the $100 plus for one. Last week I finally bought my CQC-7. It's never going to see the abuse the other two have. I don't know much about knife steels but I dont think the low cost knives are made like they used to be. During the last year I've snapped a newer blade and seriously chipped another newer knife. My Buck Lite and Benchmade keep going. I'm pretty certain the CQC is not going to break or chip and i wish id bought it back in 93. Today more than ever I think you have to pay a little to get a durable knife.

my 3 favourites . Kershaw black horse lock knife bought in 1992/1993 Gerber fixed blade a cracking knife for the money and the Browning brass and rosewood handled lock knife which is very special to me as it was my uncles who unfortunately passed away in october 2010 . He emigrated to Canada the year i was born (1968) and the Browning knife was the first thing he bought in Toronto which he later gave to me on one of the many trips i made to Canada to stay with him and his wife , think he gave it to me in 1997 . He and i were great mates over the years so im glad i have the knife which reminds me of the good times we had .

Sleepy, sweet Browning and a good story. I don't have a Gerber but we have twin Brownings and nearly matching Kershaws (date wise).

I'll throw in a couple of other Kershaw oldies and one screw-less clip Spyderco.

But I agree, best thing about them is all those rounded edges are very pocket friendly.

Nope, that is one of the 111mm knives, only the 58mm knives from Victorinox will meet the new regs.

WOW, cool idea! I have seen tool steel forged into shoes for race horses. Aluminum with steel cleats are more common though.

Picked up some Chinese folders this week, a Ka-Bar fin and 2 Kershaw Cryos. Too cheap to say no to, should be good additions to vehicles and whatnot.

I'd be pretty certain that he welds the high-carbon steel onto the found-object prior to forging the blade.

Tantos

I use to be a DIE HARD Tanto guy. I had probably twenty of them. It all started with the first gen CQC7 which was given to me by the owner of Gunsite. I carried them for ten years till I got a quality drop point folder. When I learned how much more practical a drop point, spearpoint, or Warncliff is for daily carry, I slowly got rid of all but one of my Tantos. I still love them for what they are great at but never carry one anymore for EDC.
