    SNAP ... I have the exact same Browning knife and leather pouch , I never thought I'd ever see another one ..... I was born in October 1968 , my uncle ( my mums older brother ) left Northern Ireland in the summer of 1968 to live in Toronto and one of the first things he bought in Canada was the Browning knife and pouch which he give to me on one of my many visits to stay with him , think it was in August 1997 . Unfortunately he past away on 10/10/2010 . He and I were big mates over years so the knife is very special to me .

    Love you man, just won't ever take cash up front again. Not while I have a day job and family demands. Hope there's no hard feelings.

    funny Product Description from Amazon:
    "A great choice for mild weather camping, the Arctic Leaf sleeping bag from Wenzel is a full-size, lightweight, affordable rectangular sleeping bag that's temperature rated to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. It's filled with four pounds of Wenzel's hypoallergenic Insul-Therm polyester fiber fill, and it also features a durable polyester outer shell and polyester liner. The quilt-through construction helps reduce the bunching of fill to eliminate cold spots. Other features include self-repairing zippers and two integrated elastic straps."

    I was going to buy another Benchmade knive but changed my mind and bought these:

    [​IMG]

    The black Johnny Cash one is going to be a present to my son when He turns 18 in ten years. He's as big a Cash fan as I am and I figured I would get it now while they are still made in the USA.

    The blue one is to replace the one I lost years back. I have a couple other trappers that my grandfather gave me including a well used one that dates back to the late 40's.

    Anyone else collect Case knives?

    I just took delivery of this one. Mostly because I like the blade shape. It does seem to be built to a price point. SPYDERCO says it's their original "entry level" model.
    Pros: It operates smoothly, with no free play when open. The grind on the blade appears to be easily sharpened. The clip feels strong.
    Cons: It's rather wide when closed, probably because of large the open hole. The tang that locks it in the open position is not making full contact with the blade. This makes me nervous, but it's an easy fix.
    Over all I think it is a good dollar value & I'm happy with the knife.
    Thanks for all the suggestions, guys.

    Now if my new ESEE-5 would just get here.

    A liner lock should only be partially over the blade when new. This leaves room for wear.

    Here is a custom with 4 years of wear:

    Hmmm, thread is dropping down the page - time for a new pic!

    This is A.T. Barr's EDC with jigged bone handle and ATS-34 blade:

    ATS-34 is still one of my favorite steels. It will take a fine edge and hold it well while still being relatively easy to sharpen when the time comes.

    NICE. I like how that looks old-time-y, but has modern steel & features like a thumb stud and lock.

    It was $425 as I recall. Unfortunately, Mr Barr is retired now. I am always on the lookout for his knives. I have four of them now.

    Fallkniven sharpening.

    They sell stick on diamond sharpener for the Zytel sheath.
    They claim good adhesion in 24 hours.

    Here's how it looks.

    Looks like a good idea.
    Wish it was black in color or more subtle.

    I'm not a knife guy, but decided to get few good knifes to last my lifetime w/o braking the bank.
    This is my first.. Ka-Bar BK7,
    With the little time I spend in the woods with this knife I know it was a good pick.. GREAT knife.
    BK2 and BK14 are on there way!!:clap

    ^ Been looking at that one, I've got the BK3 but I'd like something a little less blunt object.

    I never actually met him but up until he retired I had been chatting via email since the days of rec.knives (anyone remember that?).
