Ever try one of the locking Trappers with thumb stud?
For many years when I was growing up a Case Stockman was my go-to knife. Still have one from way back then but nowadays I'm more into single blade folders as my knife of choice.
^ You guys are feeding my knife habit. And I'm starting to go after all the Kershaws whenever I see 'em on sale-- so many of them are some of the best values out there in small folders these days.
Still appreciate the old Case pocketknives, too.
Never seen one. Is it custom?
No I did not know about them!
I don’t think it is custom. I’ve seen them online with and without pocket clips. I believe the newer ones are assisted opening too
Not bought, but a Christmas stocking stuffer from Santa! Benchmade Hunter.
This one. Just waiting for it.
Just purchased this Shun kitchen knife as a gift for my son. With everyone avoiding restaurants, figured he'd have more opportunity to use it.
68 layer Damascus with a VG Max core. Sharp doesn't begin to describe it.
What? I thought they looked very sharp? The price was a little high so I had to shun them for something cheaper.
While not a knife per se, I got my Shinbudo bokken in last week. I'll post a review after some use.
Bestech Ornetta. This one is an ergonomic dream for me.
Just picked up a Ka-Bar 3073 Palantir. got it for $5 at the pawn shop.
CRKT Pilar III that arrived a couple days ago.
When we bought our first house, my parents bought me a full set of those kitchen knives. 17 years later, they are still going strong. Amazingly resilient.
I got a buck 110 for "Secret Santa" this year. Its a new one with green plastic sides- no metal frame so not sure they'd be scales exactly. Its got a thumb stud and a pocket clip. Its really light compared to the buck 345 I normally carry at work.
Now, if I think about it, I may swap out my knife if we are going out. But I like the drop point better at work.
I threw an LAPG TBFK with s35vn blade in an order to get free shipping. Showed up in two days, and it doesn't suck.
Looks like a Kershaw.
It's a generic linerlock but grinds and function are good, steel is up a notch from D2, centers well, and no blade play. Complaints about earlier models included tip down only, too-big blade studs and crazy big flipper. They fixed the first two, but the flipper is still a dorsal fin. It and the liner lock edge may be softened slightly if they get in the way.
I often see people talk about the blade being centered. Is this an important function thing, or just a tiny bit of OCD?
It's probably more OCD than anything, but to me it's an indicator of the care with which a knife is constructed. I see it mentioned in videos so included it in my comments. Not a deal breaker, and often possible to tune up, but further assurance that the knife is straight, sturdy and inspires confidence.
The 2 on the right are both newest, I can't believe I'm going to say this but the Gerber is actually decent.
I think the only word that best describes this knife is "Breathtaking!"
Thank you for sharing this stylish bit of knife making art!
Yeah I’m not sure why but I really like that one. Haven’t stopped carrying it since I got it.
