Here is one of my more interesting knives. I have had this knife so long I honestly cannot remember life before it? It's kinda huge.

The top one is one of my faves, a Damascus Parker Edwards made in Jacksonville AL, USA 1986.

The second one is a Taylor designed by Phil Mann, also mid-late 80's

Third is a Parker-Imai folder.

I don't carry any of these, to heavy. But, pretty to look at.

Holy Crap! I thought I was the only one that had one of these. Got mine from my Grandfather years ago. Instead of a leather sheath it has a strange metal holder. I'll have to see if I can get a pic of it (it's at the house, I'm not).

That would seem to be an ideal outdoorsman's knife. Excellent.

In the knife industry they used to refer to that pattern as a Hobo patern as in it had everything a hobo needed to cook, hunt and eat, and also do utility chores. Nice sought after pattern in the collector circles. What is the manufacturer?

Cool Beans! I remember the Kershaw Blade Trader, another great camp, hunting utility knife. You remember that system?

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

Man this thing has no markings on it at all that I can find, the silverware was made from kitchen stock and you can see some names on that, but no names on blades that I can find. I am gona guess it is a small maker one off.

I wonder what it would be worth? (Not that I would ever sell it)
