Months ago Yo Momma posted an Imperial fishing knife I commented looked like my first real knife. I told the story of how as a six year old I allowed peer pressure to urge me the throw it at a tree and the blade had broken. I also commented that I had recently found one like it at a show.

Guess what was in my most recent "box in the shop."

Yep. Dad made me carry the broken thing for months as a reminder before he or Papa trusted me with another.

Should not have to say which is my original from 1960 as it is obvious.

Sweet photos, fellow citizens of the High Road!

Here is a couple from my collection:

Benchmade 943, S30V Steel, 3.4" Blade



Sleek, elegant profile. Swift deployment. Solid lockup. Shimmering blue titanium spacer on the back (not pictured). This is one of my favorite EDC blades.

Esee Junglas, 1095 Steel, 10" Blade



HOOOOOOOONGLAS!!!!

Big, sharp... so ugly that it's beautiful. Boasts the best sheath system i've ever seen for a large blade (not pictured). Perfect balance in the hand. Kills big blue snakes and eats them.

^ And not just any old Junglas, but a venom green with orange scales.

On my glacially slow DSL connection here in the boonies of central Maine, this thread takes about 15 minutes to load. I click the link, then go cook dinner. It may be fully loaded by the time I finish eating. So, I don't check in often, and I'm just getting caught up on a month's worth of posts.

I know what your are saying. It should be so wrong, yet it looks so right. The lime green ESEE 5, now that's really bizarre, or is it
Yes, but then, the 5 is a bizarre beast.

Since posting my statement that a 5 would be my next blade, I've come to my senses, and decided to go for a 4 for the next one, then a 6. The 5 is a fine knife if you just want to tear stuff up, or break out of a cockpit and survive the next 24 hours til the rescue team gets to you. For the rest of us, I suspect a 4 or 6 will serve better.

The 5 is intriguing, complete with glass smasher and bow-drill divot!

Ontario Ranger Tanto. Sometimes called a 'sharpened pry bar'




@tony_the_tiger

Gotta get me one of those Esee Junglas in venom green too!

mtech knife.jpgHere's a pic of the knife I have with me today, it's a cheap one I picked up several years ago but it has a good blade. 440 steel, holds a good sharp edge, and has seen some use as you can probably see from the scratches on the blade. I'm surprized by the durability of a $5 knife...

Here's what I've recently adopted as my EDC. Its a Case Copperlock in Red Bone Jig. Checking the markings I didn't know (I bought it used on a whim) this but its actually one from 1997 which was the first year this pattern was made.

MTech love Logan! yeah, for 5 bucks not much to expect. Can't seem to sharpen it though.

I'm no sharpening expert, and it took me a little while to get a good edge but I sat down in front of the ol tv with a medium arkansas stone and worked the edge until it was better and then stropped it for awhile. Once you get it sharp it should hold a pretty good edge, hmm...I seem to do a lot of projects sitting in front of the tv, lol!

Just got this amazing custom knife by Calvin Nichols

Made according to my specifications. Amazing high gloss finish. Scales are mammoth tooth. What you cant see is that the spine is 1/4 inch thick and that it has nice file work. The maker is local to me in Raleigh, NC. Highly recommended.
