I don't understand knife laws, wtf difference does it make if you can push a button to open the blade? It's like they watched Vic Morrow in Blackboard Jungle and decided switchblades were God awful dangerous. Locking blade?
So what, why in the hell does that matter? It's intent, I can stick a butter knife in your neck or clean my nails with a switchblade. Make me President and I'll stop this silly shit.

I like both, the top one has some nice curves and lines to it. he bottom one does too, the bottom one has more culture coded influence I think for most I think. You don't come up with the first one in your mind when you think camp knife or hunter necessarily. All just my opinion of course
When I look at a blade or many things I see where the lines finish and how well they are balanced and teamed together.

The upper one is a classic "Nessmuk" design, from his book "Woodcraft".

Here's one guy's interpretation of the tools and their uses...

I just took an order, which is something I rarely do these days with my schedule, for a serious killing machine of a blade. 25" overall, tertiary backup weapon to carbine and pistol for a serious dood for whom close quarters combat is in fact his job.

Stay tuned for details.

Here's my modest collection - less modest than when I started reading this thread, of course.

Top Left is my Kershaw Leek, to its right is the Spyderco Tenacious G-10. The others are el-cheapo stock picked up for a song. The green Remington-branded one is ok, good to have if I need to destroy a knife. The black one seems pretty cheap and is sure to fall apart if I put it to any real use. The Kobalt one is very small, but seems to be a bit nicer, and the polished ones are Buck knives that came in a (cheap) set. These will be joined next week by a SOG Flash I that I have on order.

I've been meaning to do this for a while, so here's a few knives for your viewing pleasure:

Starting with the big boys:


The Chris Reeve fixed blades:


The Spydercos:





the Benchmades:


The Others:




There's lots more, but that's the ones that were in the box when I went to photograph them (except the kitchen knives- I still use those every day, for the last 20+years).
