    I'd like a Holt Spectre https://holtbladeworks.com. But man are they expensive.
    And I'd like the sage 2 before it's gone. But I bought a sage 5 I stead because everybody liked the compression lock so much. I'm not a fan. Bit then, I'm something g of a a curmudgeon.

    I wish I had bought one of the bm 710 clones China was producing last year. Carbon fiber, d2, $60. I bought a 940 copy instead to see how it compared to my real one. It stacked up impressively well. Not as good, but a heck of a value. Of course, now the (10s (real and fake) are gone and the 940s remain.

    My 710 next to wife's 940.

    I have had my 710 for ten years plus, I think.
    Have the wife her 940 some 6 years ago.

    Carbon Fiber scaled Ferrum Forge Gent is on the way and I just got my Kephark BK62. A local smith is working on completing a small damascus hunter (as soon as I get some ivory to him).

    Me too, ever since I first learned about them here at THR a few years ago.

    I had looked at HI and window-shopped around, but I couldn't really justify the purchase or the price. Well, this past gun show I didn't see a true HI product, but rather what turned out to be a Condor Heavy Duty Kukri Knife. Very lightly used and in very good shape, but no sheath. Sticker said $65; vendor said he would take $50.


    It's a lot more knife than I'll probably ever need, and honestly I could probably mostly do whatever job with the 2 machetes I already had. Still happy to have it. I think all things considered it would be more useful to me than a small hatchet IMHO. Will keep an eye out for a generic sheath that will work, or maybe even try to make one out of an old belt I have laying around. Looking forward to sharpening it up and giving it a spin.

    Anything that says Case on it :)

    Been carrying/collecting them for 40 years. I must say if I had to choose something other than case it would be Benchmade

    If that's the 047 pattern I really like it too. I used to be in a Case roundtable where we gave each other knives and someone gifted me a 047 and it became my favorite over the regular Trapper, which I have a bunch of. Also love Hobos.

    I have three of these that I funded on Kickstarter back in March. I'm dying to try them out. I have no feasible use for a karambit, but it is such a cool design. Apparently they are delayed a bit waiting on blades to come back from IonBond and for a re-manufacture of fasteners that were within spec but the net error was a couple ten thousandths high. I'm going nuts waiting for them.

    A Rat 1 or 2 in D2 steel. Might be the new work knife. The smaller blade might work better, but I’ve got big hands and I might need the larger scales.

    I've got pretty much everything I need, but I'm knife guy more than a gun guy.

    I might have accidentally stumbled upon a Schrade Manila Folder in my wife's closet that will probably end up under the tree for me;) I had hinted at wanting one just because. It's an old 1980s style balisong/butterfly knife. Heavy as all get out, pinned instead of torque screw construction, a total rattlebox. However a big ol 4" piece of D2 blade wrapped in nostalgic steel handles for under $80 bucks is kinda fun:)

    One of my favorite knives was a Case CV Trapper with Amber bone scales and sent it to a guy called Muskratman. http://www.muskratmanknives.com/
    He took the knife apart and removed the spey blade and put it back together looked like from the factory.

    A Seax made by Tinker, but until I hit the lottery, probably not going to happen.

    I may be overly simple in my wants, but I want to replace my S&W hatchet/knife set that I have used since the late 90s. The hatchet is chipped and boogered up from cutting pelvic bones and legs. I think I want a more traditional setup this time, a strong sheepsfoot blade skinner, a heavy wooden dowel to whack the spine with for precision cuts to separate joints, and an ulu. Throw in a small traditional 2ish lb hatchet or hand axe and I’m good. Put it all in a rabbit or coon hide pouch and I’m even better.
