Hey Sisco, nice looking pairings. I needs me a model 29 bad. :)
Anyone else got some G&K pics to share? I just got through going to the Blade show, and still have knife fever!
March 12, 2003, 08:01 PM
Which is the 184? The tanto with the dymondwood handle or the rambo knife? Only 2 in there I can't recognize :D
top right and counter clockwise:
Kershaw (avalanche?), Rambo knife by? (just about everybody made one at one time or another, quality definitely varies)
Becker (brute?, not familiar with specific models), Buck 110 possibly the smaller 112, Benchmade (striker? ), Emerson (commander?), and the tanto?
How'd I do? I could have been more specific before I started making my own knives. Don't do as much browsing, drooling, or buying anymore....
March 12, 2003, 08:04 PM
Oh yeah, if you can't get your fix here, stop over at www.bladeforums.com . There is a thread going in the gallery forum (under general discussion) that covers this exact topic. 2 pages of pics so far.
March 12, 2003, 08:10 PM
Yep, the 184 is the "Rambo" knife. It was actually used in the movie. (Not that exact one in the pic, but that model....ya know....)
Is that 184 yours???
March 12, 2003, 08:54 PM
Making knives Redneck?
Man, that's something I'd love to try. You guys know your knives and called 'em. But I'm representing, heh. The Buck Life Knife (184) is a cheap copy I picked up at a gunshow years ago. It's rarely been used, since when I pull it out other campers give me heavy Rambo shi... er, stuff.
The Onion and Kershaw knives are cheap copies I bought at the show. After carrying them, I now want the real thing too. Both are excellent designs. I'm a wanna-be, but love custom knives. Been reading Blade and going to knife shows for years. Redneck, ya got any pics of your work? I'd get such a kick outta making my own knife!
That's a Becker Camp Utility 7, and my favorite for real work. The laminated handled Tanto is a Anza file knife. They are super strong, with full tangs. Great deal, mine was $39 with the leather sheath. The Benchmade is an Emerson copy of a CQC7 with the longer Black T blade. Very Tactibilly. :) It's a good knife, and I got to buy it from Emerson himself at a knife expo, heh. He was selling his new Sabenza (sp?) for $200. I wussed out, now they're $300 and up. D'Oh!
Let's see your matches guys and gals? Tamaaaara? :)

I'm kind of challenged in the picture takin area, never gotten anything to turn out borrowing my moms digital camera. She just got a scanner so I may try that sometime.
The Rambo style knives are somethin every collector has at least one of , but refuse to claim or use in front of other knife nuts :D Its kind of funny. Chris Reeve makes one peice lineup in A2, that are hollow handled and similar (more toned down) style. They're supposed to be great. Expensive too :what:
I'll pass on the sebenza. I have a benchmade pinnacle, which is a similar style (some of the more rabid sebenza fans call it a knock off, its not) that I've been beating the heck out of for a few years, and for what it does costing $100 theres no need for a $300 sebenza other than just wanting one. But then I carry my own stuff most of the time anyway now, much cheaper.
If you want to try making a knife check this out
www.knifekits.com , its a good way to get started. Or just to stick with as a hobby. I make my own stuff by stock removal now, takes longer, requires large amounts of swearing from time to time, but its fun. Theres also a lot of good stuff at www.texasknife.com
And to keep things gun related, I use the same workbench I make knives at to work on guns from time to time :D
March 12, 2003, 09:56 PM
A crappy picture, but here's my Rambo III replica:
March 12, 2003, 10:43 PM
That's not a knife mate, this is a knife!
March 12, 2003, 10:45 PM
I've sold the Ruger since...but still have the photo...sniff..sniff.
March 12, 2003, 10:48 PM
OK. Cheesy gun and a cheese knife.
I've posted this pic before, just couldn't resist doing it again. :D
March 12, 2003, 11:20 PM
Python. Now that's a knife!
You too Sisco. Not the butter knife of course.
I like the Miculeks a lot, they feel good to me. The grip I would like to try is the Blumagnum Skeeter Skelton variety, but I don't know where to find them. They seem to improve on the Miculek style in that the bottom of the grip flares out a bit more. Keep in mind that I shoot .38 special in this gun, so I don't deal with much in the way of recoil (130gr Winchester stuff). When I've shot hot .357 loads with these grips, they don't work as well. But the 66 is for IDPA work, so I don't worry about that. I use my Ruger for .357 ammo.
By the way, some nice combos you've got there!
March 13, 2003, 09:43 PM
Thanks for the compliment. I really like gun and knife combos. This is a great thread.
March 14, 2003, 02:25 AM
OOPS, sorry Charles S , not "8", that's what happens when I read the computer without glasses:rolleyes:
March 14, 2003, 04:16 AM
Sisco, that cheesy knife and gun are great
Python, that's a real Rambo sticker, cool.
Atticus, tis sad, that's a great looking pair of stag handles.
Tamara, thanks. Your photography is looking good.
PS is off the hook. Very Tactibilly collection! Thanks for sharing.
Jsalcedo, what the heck is that ol' pistol?
12G, nice. Are those Canadian coins?
Charles S, very sweeet! How do you choose in the morning? ;)
Python, that's some nice armament ya got there.
Thanks for replying folks. Got some fun wallpaper shots.
March 14, 2003, 10:31 PM
I really like this topic, I had to add one of some back up guns. Mouse guns need homes.:D
Charles S: I'll join in the complements on your Hi Power and assorted accoutrements. I've recently acquired a Hi Power, have the Streamlight, have the Spydie Military, but am most interested in the grips on your Hi Power. :cool: Where'd ya get 'em? geegee
March 16, 2003, 11:42 PM
If you can believe it I found the grips in a "discard bin" of grips that had been replaced in Praco Guns in Waco Texas. I think I paid 19.00 plus tax for the grips. I was told someone took them off a BHP for a set of Pachmeyer Presentation Grips:what: .
Their loss my gain.:D
I am not sure who orginally made the grips.
BTW I really, really wood grips sold by Houge for the BHP.
March 17, 2003, 12:47 AM
This is a guns with knives thread, ain't it? :evil:
March 17, 2003, 08:11 AM
Very nice, I have always wanted a 590, but I have never ran across the right deal. :banghead: I guess I should buy one new.
March 17, 2003, 08:39 AM
That ain't a 590...it's a well set-up 870.
Boy from Texarkana oughta know that.
March 17, 2003, 10:41 AM
12G, nice. Are those Canadian coins?
Braz, thanks. No, those are German Pfennig coins. I've just got to get one of them there digital cameras! :)
March 17, 2003, 06:57 PM
You are most correct sir. My mistake!:what: I usually don't make errors of that magnitude. I noticed that bayonet lug and assumed it was a 590 at a glance, when it is clearly a 870.
You are correct I do know the difference :banghead:
Oh well not my first mistake, certainly won't be my last.
March 17, 2003, 07:01 PM
I have really enjoyed digging in the gun safe. Here is my walking in the woods companions.
We're having as much fun as you are. Man, that S&W is the best one yet. Rivals Tamera's beauty, let me inquire about the finish? And who made that gorgeous skinner??
G98, whatever model it is, nobody is gonna argue with you! ;) Cool weapon.
Mitch, that's two compact beauties ya got there. Is that my leather jacket you borrowed??
What a great online gunshow. Makes for a great desk-top slide screensaver. Tamera's Smith (fade to) Charles' hi-power (fade to) G98's German iron, etc. :cool:
PS: Griz, that's cold. Funny though. :)
March 17, 2003, 10:26 PM
The S&W 29 started life as a very, very accurate polished blue 6" barrel square butt.
Whitehead Custom ported the barrel, re-cut the crown, narrowed & polished the trigger, narrowed and rounded the target hammer in a combat style, removed the bottom edge from the cylinder latch to allow faster speed loads and to keep it from cutting under heavy recoil, dehorned the gun for carry and finished it with a Black Teflon bake on finish very similar to the proprietary Black T finish. The finish is not as hard as I would like, but no other complaints.
The knife is a custom Dozier Slim Outdoorsman. Arguably the finest knife I have ever owned. Dozier ships his knives with a custom Kydex sheath.
I will see what else I can dig up in the next day or two. I probably can come up with something else.
March 17, 2003, 11:41 PM
Save for the M16 bayonet on the Remington 870, they're all customs, made by an old friend in Citrus Heights, Dick Bancroft, aka Dirty Dick. (D/D for short, and his trademark)
The parkerized 01 steel w/red linen micarta scales, seen with my 1984-vintage Desert Eagle, is his "Field & Bloodstream" model, commissioned for me when I was heading off to Desert Shield and Desert Storm. It remains in my helmet bag for the current contingency, and will continue to do so until I retire from the Air Force in 3 years.
The 154CM stainless bent-spine monster, seen with the 1918 DWM Luger, is his "Mrs. Doubtfire Kitchen Fighter", and has seen a LOT of use in our kitchen. I don't even bother to oil the black paper micarta scales anymore.
The little 154CM stainless bootfighter with black linen micarta scales and brass guard, seen with the Caspian Officer's ACP, is a what-if he built on a whim, that just fit my hand perfectly.
Below is a handy 154CM stainless skinner, with red and black linen micarta scales, posed against my IPSC-modded 1911A1. It carries the name of "Gook Cup", or "Raunchorinco". If you look at both 1911 variants, you'll see Dick's trademark D/D on them in various places. He built them for me, too. :D
March 17, 2003, 11:46 PM
You have a dramatic collection of both guns and knives.
Thanks for the information on the knives; you friend does some very impressive work. I really like the skinner you just posted. That is truly my type of knife. :D
I have really enjoyed this thread, thanks for sharing your tools.
March 18, 2003, 01:12 AM
Here is my AR, Eagle/Becker Patrol Pack, and BK&T BK6 PATROL MACHETE......
Hey Charles...I've got some good Hog Killin' bottoms about 40 miles east of you.
Want to do some pistol hunting this summer?
March 18, 2003, 09:22 PM
I am most honored by the request. I have always wanted to hunt hogs with a handgun. I have never had the opportunity. I have some 320 gr hard cast loaded to 1270 by CorBon. Do you think that might be adequate?:D
I would be happy to accept the invite, just let me know the details at your convenience, and let me know what I can do to assist.
March 18, 2003, 10:37 PM
You know where Stamps is?
We should continue on PM...BTW...My folks live up there, anyone for an Arkansas TFL get together?
March 18, 2003, 11:49 PM
Hmmm...Colt Defender, with a Boker Brend, complete with politically incorrect Brend logo
March 19, 2003, 07:55 PM
How about a S&W 4567, this is really one of my most favorites. I think everyone needs one, oh wait S&W mail a little less than 1500 of them, nice guns with factory Trijicon night sights.
Cold Steel push dagger, Benchmade 721 and a Surefire 9Z.
Looks like Charles has discovered the art of the "plonk"! (Plonk gun on flatbed of scanner, cover with colored cloth of choice, and press scan button...) ;)
March 19, 2003, 08:29 PM
Aagh!!! :what: I've been discovered. :banghead:You are most correct sir :D , the only problem I have found is it a limiting medium and I can't figure out how to scan the long guns in yet. Give me time I will work it out.
March 19, 2003, 09:53 PM
A few feeble attempts at artistry...
Daily Carry Combo - Springfield Stainless Loaded Target and CRKT M16-03Z
I'll play along. Sorry if the image is crappy but I have to work with a cheap digital camera right now. Yes, that is a 12" ruler at the bottom. :D
March 21, 2003, 11:08 PM
well its sort or a knife........ok its a sword....
March 22, 2003, 12:29 PM
That is a very nice collection:D I really like the stainless 1911-A1. CRKT knives are a lot of knife for the money. Nice Blackhawk and knife for hunting also.
Very nice CZ, that is a gun that has been absent from my collection:banghead: I really need to change that.
If you are ever in my part of the country I would really like to shoot the H&K. I have handled and drooled on several but I have never shot a P7. I think the P7M8 is one of the pistols with the best feel ever. Very, very nice.
I hope you never fall into a body of water with that carry load out, you will never make it.
Somehow I doubt you guys got tired of this one already :D
Somebody asked about the knives I make and I finally got a decent picture so I thought I'd try to put one up. Unfortunately, I'm not quite followin the rules cause I don't have any guns that would fit on the scanner with it :(
This one is kind of modified from a hunter pattern I've been working on. Ground it extra thin, shrunk choil, and got rid of the bolsters. Currently resides in my sister's kitchen.
April 22, 2003, 08:45 PM
April 22, 2003, 08:47 PM
And my logo, still working out some ideas on this. Works out great on fixed blades but I can't figure out where to put it on small folders:confused:
April 22, 2003, 08:51 PM
at least until you guys find this and start in with the jokes ;)
Heres a folder
April 22, 2003, 08:53 PM
Side view of the folder messed up somehow, have to scan it again later if you guys don't run me out for theses ones.
I'll quit with this one
Thanks for looking
April 22, 2003, 09:27 PM
Charles S, nice BHP! What kind of grips are those? They look great!
April 23, 2003, 04:22 AM
Impressive Redneck! Very tasteful piece, graceful lines and looks to hold a fine edge. Not sure about the logo, heh. You must be having a blast. Have you done any bowies yet?
April 23, 2003, 05:42 PM
Nope, no bowies yet. I have a pretty anemic set up for heat treating so I can only do blades up to about 4".
The kitchen knife is 440C stainless, takes a very good edge.
The folder is O1 tool steel. I've never worked with anything with this fine of a grain before. Its literally like a straight razor. I actually have to rough the edge up with a medium grit stone a little bit to give it enough bite for cutting rope. Kind of embarrasing to show someone how cleanly a knife push cuts paper and then have it harmlessly slide across a peice of baling twine :o
