Well it's fairly official, I hope to get something similar to this one here. Lisa the blacksmith makes some damn fine looking knives. It also helped the cause with the wife, she thinks its pretty cool I'm getting a hand crafted knife from a woman blacksmith.

That "Knife of Alaska" is a nice-looking piece.

I was in Alaska & Western Canada recently, and saw a number of knife shops, but they mostly carried either collector-quality (i.e. fossil mammoth ivory handles, etc) or nasty tourist-quality town-branded junk. I didn't find any user-grade work.

I did see a nicely built user-grade Scandanavian-style knife in a hardware store, but I'm not a huge fan of that style.

Too bad. I'd have enjoyed bringing home a useful trophy from that trip. I think I've already lost my only other souvenir -- a ball cap.

So, I've noticed the location of the owner of the Balisongs and I gotta ask,
How did you manage to come by them? I always had them on my can't order/sell list
when I managed a cutlery shop.

i have a time sensitive question that I'm hoping y'all knife known folks can help me with. What's a good child's knife? my son is 8 and attending a camp that encourages the campers to bring knives. they need to either be fixed blade or locking, so the obvious swiss army or boy scout knife is out, unless they make a model that I'm not aware of. any help will be appreciated.

Get him a Mora. Cheap, solid gear, no problem if he loses it, and it will punch above its weight as he grows into it.

My buddy John sells 'em... http://www.survivalresources.com/sto...d=16294&page=1

I have to say that the mora would probably be too large and too sharp for an 8 year old. Too bad swiss army knives aren't allowed, they seem like a perfect knife for a kid- there are some models with locking blades, and that might be the ticket, or an opinel #7 or 6 with a stainless blade (in my opinion, will hold up better to kid abuse). Or a hardware store locking knife. I really wouldn't give a kid something I expected to be treated with reverence and passed down to the next generation. That said, he/she should be taught that it's a big responsibility to have a knife, and how to take care of it.

Check out #440.

Get him a real knife or forget the idea if you don't trust him.

I'd say #611 and teach him to take care of the carbon steel.
