Wrong thread. Posted on correct thread...
Picked these up this week at pawn, the over sized OldTimer has cheap handles but I like big knives, the little sticker is kinda awesome looking, seems home made, has a cross marking on it...
I was quite pleased with the Rat II, so I decided to get the Rat I both with D2 blade steel.
A KA Bar Warthog with Tanto point and serrations.
Case model “Russlock” I bought it about 12 years ago and it has served well in that time. It is in my pocket constantly if it’s not being used. It’s 2 1/4” blade has never been to restricted for my needs but then again I once field dressed a whitetail with a Swiss Army Fisherman's model. I use to loose knives all the time but these bright orange G10 scales always say “hey don’t walk away without me”.
I could not find my favorite Kabar Dozier design folding hunter for the life of me. So I bought three more just in case. Also got one of the smaller version of the same knife. But it's too small to be an EDC for anything other than going to the office.
I do not have a fancy collection. Have been toting around the woods the Schrade Henry for decades and always served me well. Just bought this off of Amazon and came in today. Seems like a nice knife for $17.00.
Schrade SCHF57 6.3in Steel Full Tang Fixed Blade Knife with 2.6in Drop Point Blade and G-10 Handle
Bear & Son make a unique harpoon style blade with a double guard and angular G-10 scales. The blade shape intrigues me, the top guard seems totally incongruous, and the G-10 is like grasping a sawblade. Price was right but I will need to grind off the top of the guard and do something to the G-10 so that it works better with my paws and looks better too. Will be watching handle thread. Stock pic:
Just paddling my "new to me" canoe...
A very beat up Dutch Army Knife made or rather issued in 1963.
Its old, stiff in all the joints and defintly in need of some Tlc, pretty much the same as me.
But for some strange reason i like it.
I will post a picture when i get 5 minutes out of work.
Murray Carter kitchen knife and an Olamic Rainmaker, both cane in a few days ago.
I'm a sucker for knives. Im getting ready to go on a trip where corrosion is an issue due to some salty air. I have kinda been looking at a new self defense fixed blade. I had a weak Amazon moment the other evening and went ahead and bought a knife that I have had my eye on for over a decade.
The totally "impractical" Cold Steel Tai Pan in San Mai. VG10 layered in mystery stainless yields a very tough and nimble dagger that should be nearly impossible to rust yet hold a reasonable edge. In full honesty, I dont really need a knife with high edge retention. Its a weapon. Even with a 7.5" blade, the knife feels lively in hand. It feels like the kind of knife that would incredibly effective when deployed by a skilled fighter as well as someone just in fight or flight mode. It certainly makes one much longer in claw than nature intended.
I do like the Secure Ex sheath as well. Its a nice set up that lends itself to hold itself close to the body and can be held inverted in a shoulder holster. I've been looking at this line of daggers for a long time. Its pretty neutral in hand and light enough that I packs well on my belt. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on some James Keating videos once upon a time, and I went ahead and bought a polymer version of the Tai Pan to use for practice some of the techniques I learned. I feel like this knife could bite you on accident in pretty short order, so im trying to work my familiarity up a bit before I start practicing any drills with a live blade. The FGX polymer of the plastic Tai Pan is sharp and pointy enough to give you a couple warning kisses without chancing a love bite from the real deal.
Long story short, it's a formidable weapon that I hope to get to know better in the coming weeks. While there is an upgraded 3V version, I prefer the polished look and feel of the VG10 sandwich and have a very good knowledge of what I can expect from the knife given how many blades I own in that steel. $150 impulse that was money well spent.
Scale here is my Combat Troodon. A rather large and intimidating OTF with a 3.75" blade. Cute lil bug next to the Tai Pan.
This one came in the mail yesterday...
That's a Tom Mayo Persian Flipper. LOL, I had to use a translator to figure out what you were asking...
