That is a beautiful design. Please send me a link..thanks.
Oops - haven't been following the thread for a while so I missed the question - sorry.
It's holding up way better than I thought it would, I originally bought it as a dressy pocket knife to wear on those rare occasions that require a suit, but wound up carrying it a lot, seeing as how it attaches quite nicely to the other end of my pocketwatch chain. I recently noticed a couple of minor scratches in the finish near the very tip, and I only noticed those while doing some fine cutting under a magnifying glass - otherwise not a mark on it after over a year of use. Of course I don't hammer on it with wrenches or use it as a prybar or anything like that.
altogether f'n cool
that's what i did when dad died. went straight to fetch that old buck stockman he carried every day.
Dad's 86 and going strong. He served in the Navy during WW II and spent most of his time on a sub tender. Dad was a mechanic. He made the Bowie knife while serving. The front and rear bolster's were made from the aluminimum of a japanese zero prop nut. The smaller knife is a WC Davis.
I made this Pukko from a kit a while ago. Came out pretty well, gave it to a friend.
here are a few, I like the "Sharpfinger" design, Den
Here are a few knives and tools I used working for the Gubment and still use on occasional blasting jobs.
I want the government job that allows me to carry an auto Benchmade. Unfortunately, a felony is frowned upon in California classrooms, so I have to make due with a manual.
see sig line
picked this knife up somewhere between kashkar and hotan in china, can't remember the name of the town but there was knife shops everywhere
Apparently it's the type the Shepard's used to carry about.
It's hand made, the blade is folded in a similar fashion to the samurai swords of Japan, which is a really cool process to watch (if slightly warm when your already in the desert) the handle is inlaid stones and is engraved by hand. Also got the makers name and the date stamped into the blade. It's also really sharp, as i've just found out
Also bought my father a large stainless steel knife for the kitchen, that's still as sharp as the day i gave it to him
of course that knife never gets used, got a leatherman skeletool that i keep with me / the bike all the time.
Auto openers are not as fast as a good one hand opener if you practice at all.
Christopher is a true artist...beautiful work that! So, Smithy....appropriate if it's you Christopher!
True; but in a 70 lb bomb suit in which you can't rotate your helmet down and barely clap your hands, you need all the help you can get.
It ain't fer shankin' tangos; just a tool for cutting.
I'm pretty sure auto's being illegal have never saved a single person from being stabbed. Hell, in prison (possibly the most controlled environment in this nation) stabbings are rampant.
But the guy asking about an auto wasn't law enforcement, or he could own and possess one. I was refering to him asking about an auto since he can't carry one in his class he teaches. In Cali of course.
I gotcha, I was just splainin' the reasoning for me having it on the Gubment job. It just gives us a helping hand on the job.
I definitely wouldn't want to use it in a knife fight. Give me a straight blade any day.
Yup, that's me. On hiatus for a while, while I'm pursuing a Masters this year. No time for orders... but I got a couple things of my own in-work, that I make snail-pace progress on in the apartment. Thanks for the compliments.
That is why I have one of these:
Its a bit large, so I usually carry a Benchmade, but it cuts bailing twine just fine. I dont need any more letters in my personnel file.
I owned an automatic Benchmade Spike, and this is, indeed, faster.
Had this one made for my son.
