    While out and about today, picked up a Columbia River "Prowler" folder, 3,5 inch blade. Was cheap, 15 clams, drop point 1/2 serrated, titanium black coated blade/handle. Hefty for a folder. the serrations are wicked sharp (happend quick, no guitar playing tonight). Looks like one for the truck, prehaps in a foam insert in the door holder slots.

    Man, nice work on the sheaths! Anyone who doesn't have a friend like you might take a look here for both folder and fixed-blade sheaths:

    Funny semi-related story. I went to the SOG outlet sale about a month ago in Lynnwood and they had everything and anything you needed or wanted at a great price. You could hold and check out every blade they sell. At the checkout counter was a box of band-aids...almost empty.

    A real pain to sharpen though. But when it's sharp, it stays long time.




    Where did you buy the tanto? Is it the Cold Steel?

    Edit: Forget it...I saw that it's the CS

    :lol3

    fiddling with a new, unfamiliar knife is always touchy, and I can see all kinda of guys "testing" the blades :rofl

    and SOG has got some very nice, very sharp stuff. I'd have liked to make it to that sale.

    i have been a knife maker/gun builder & engraver for many years - i even carry a band-aid in my wallet - hey - it's going to happen - i have more than one blade get hung up in a cloth wheel & get slung across the shop! I've only had to go in for stitches once in all these years - pretty lucky really - tom

    Yup. Cloth wheels and blades are a bad mix, especially if they're turning fast enough to effectively polish. I had an edge catch -- ONCE -- took a dime-sized flap of skin out of my middle finger. Now I don't polish knives anymore.

    I polish all my edges, as part of my sharpening routine.

    Scariest one I did was an Angus Trim broadsword for a friend. Holy hell, 4+feet of razor sharpness on both sides. Pucker factor 9 on that one.

    Top- Left: Cold Steel "belt knife", nice offset shape, poor plastic handle but overall kinda like it. Stays in the "Get Out Of Dodge" pack.
    Right: Ka-Bar "short, straight blade" Nice :evil
    Lower- Left: Smith & Wesson SWAT something or other. Nice for the price, stays in the truck.
    Right: Columbia River Kife Co- "Prowler", new. May go in the tank bag.
