Odds and Ends

Just thought I would show some of my latest purchases, most of which were influenced by recent forum discussions.

- The SAK is a Pocket Pal and is perfect for pocket carry in a suit.

- The Old Hickory 1095 paring knife is one of half dozen purchased after Steve's discourse on their utility. This one is freshly patina'd (using Pepsi) and is waiting for its plastic toothbrush holder case before going into the PT Cruiser glove box.

- The knife at the top right is 1095 three finger blade set up for neck carry. It was purchased from a local knife maker at a gunshow in Richmond, VA.

- The knife at the top left is a Buck Hartsook purchased from a THR member and received today. I was surprised to find it was S30V steel and heat treated and marked by Bos!

- The smaller white stone is a medium Arkansas. The larger dark red stone is one of three razor honing stones I found in a West Virginia antique store a few weeks ago. This one was as you see it, while the other two are in the original boxes with all paperwork. All are super hard and the one pictured produced scary sharp, razor edges on the Old Hickorys', the neck knife, and the Hartsook.

Striker,
You done good.

Now to defend against someone getting into your pie in the fridge, get you a little rubber snake and place atop the pie.

Yes this works, still I do suggest folks investigate and verify for themselves.

Video would be best but we at THR will accept pictures.

*I help a lot*

do you happen to have contact information for the maker of the top right hand knife (the one made by the richmond area maker)?

ECHRain10,

Not off hand, but he is always at both the Richmond shows. I'll find out this weekend if I can make it to the show at the Raceway.

Those little Buck Hartsook 860's a tough, sharp and useful little suckers. To get a good grip on them, you need to incorporate the fob as an extension of the handle. I get my pinky into the fob, grasp the forward part of the handle/tang with my thumb and index finger in a foil grip, and get my other two in a wrap around grip. It is not the tactical knife Buck advertises it to be. It would be nice if they made a scaled up version.

The little Vic is a handy knife too.

The Hartsook is a favorite of mine because of the cost, the steel and the incredible amount of versatility it has. It is damn convenient, too!

Looks like you did good all the way around, Striker!
