Would like to see a photo of an older one. They've been produced forever it seems. I wonder if the one you have was an old military issued one?

"This new tool did not go unnoticed by the US Military. The Woodman's Pal or "LC-14-B" in military terms, was standard issue from the early part of World War II through Desert Storm. G.I.'s and the US Army Signal Corp. relied heavily on the Woodman's Pal for land clearing operations. At the time of the Vietnam War, the Woodman's Pal was designated the "Survival Tool, Type IV" and was issued in air crew survival kits."

I've bought some 20 knives in the last 30 days, the Beckers are my favorites so far (some knives are still in the mail).







I like Kershaw, too (the rest of the pics aren't mine)





Spyderco is another brand I'm buying.



I like the little Boker I got, I may need more Bokers.

Your telling me, I'm kinda out of control. I'm seriously thinking of asking to be banned from thebladeforum, after only 30 posts there. The exchange forum there has some smokin deals.

I think you can get them for the largest two models above (BK7, BK9), but I'm not sure.

The BK2 for sure comes with the kydex sheath, the 5 1/4" long blade is a full 1/4" thick, this one is one stout knife (sorry the pic is of the back of the sheath):

Edit: Adding this top view to show thickness, the BK2 is in the middle.

Here's a couple of my diver knives (again, not my pics).

Tiburon by Buck, designed by famed kayaker Ed Gillette.



Gerber Clip Lock.



I like the Cold Steel stuff, I got this one, the Recon Tanto folder.





I. Need. To. Stop. Buying. Knives.

And start making them!

My folders. Have to get into the safe to get the fixed blade stuff...
Left side top three all Benchmade, the black Tanto has been in my pocket daily for about 7 years. Bottom left is a little Pro-Tech auto blade. Right side are all Boker, top is ceramic blade. Bottom 3 are auto blades, two of which are never carried from the Tree series.
