    I'm sure most of you know who makes this knife. I love the silver, nickel buttcap on the end of the stag handle:

    Hey Yo

    Thanks for posting that Imperial folding fishing knife. One was my first pocket knife and given to me by my fishing buddy, my Grandfather.

    Sadly within a year I had fallen to temptation and after having played a few games of mumblypeg with it took a dare and a challange to throw it against a tree. I did hit closest to the mark and it was easy to tell by the broken blade we had to remove from the tree with pliers. My dad made me carry the bladeless folding fish scaler for several months as a learning experience.

    When my Wife's Grandfather pulled it out, my jaw dropped. I said I needed to take a picture of it, and he was all confused (not a knife guy). Knife was beat to heck, but he was amazed when I said there are many that would love to still have it. I think he values it a bit more now. :)

    Nice and I don't have any knife that doesn't get used sooner or latter.

    Can I just grind down and shape a piece of truck spring and expect it to chop well as a sort of heavy knife?

    No, there's more to a knife than grinding a piece of metal into a knife shape.

    My other favorite maker is Wayne (WR) Clark. Aside from his customs, he did a lot of blades at Protech. While I found some Godfathers he did, but I've never found a Godson. So he rebladed some for me.

    Steve32,

    The requirement is that you gotta actually own it to post it. If you own the M-Tech you're welcome to post about it.

    BTW, the inexpensive Frosts Moras are much better quality knives for just a couple of dollars more and if you get the chance you should pick one up.

    Springs

    Much more. You can make a quite serviceable knife from a truck spring but doing so involves a whole lot more than just grinding it down (annealing, shaping, sharpening, tempering, polishing...and then there's the scales and mounting/shaping them.) The knives pictured here are exceptional (and expensive) tools produced by talented craftsmen. Whenever I see, as in this thread, some really fine examples of the knifemakers art, I am surprised that they don't cost more than they do.
