    This thoroughly abused KA-BAR (bushwhacking and gardening tool) was brought back by my dad from his WWII days and given to me as a child. It would be my first knife.

    This S&W pocket knife was the first serious knife I purchased with my own hard-earned dishwashing and stock-clerking money...

    And this Spyderco Matriarch 2 is my most recent knife acquisition, as of about a week ago... :)

    I'm hitting refresh at DLT Trading every 30 seconds hoping to snag one of the last of their order of 2020 special Spartan Harsey Folders... I really need a boomerang stainless damascus Plague Doctor as a 2020 souvenir.

    That KA-BAR needs a little love.
    I bought this one at the PX back in 1983. It’s been around the world and in one war.

    ESEE Xancudo in S35VN with orange and black G-10. The handle is really nice on this little guy and retention is outstanding:

    Welp, I'm no longer able to buy firearms, since when I complete the 4473 I'd have to check that I'm addicted to Hinderer Knives.

    Pair of wharncliffe Half Tracks to go with my spear-point Eklipse.

    Black G10 and battle black DLC handles with working finish 20CV blades.

    I'm down grading my rating on the Ganzo fh41, while still a good knife the pocket clip is weak, it doesn't take much to tweak the steel clip. I'd give it a 4 out 5 for now at $27. The blade and action is still very good.

    I have a Bark River Canadian with green micarta scales and 3V steel inbound. Green is kind of turning into a thing around here. The last two that arrived:

    The Bark River Canadian has arrived. It's quite a knife, very robust. Rides deep in the sheath so a pull loop (green of course) will be handy. A bit less angle between the blade and the handle than the Grohmann that went missing many years ago. But a highly functional knife nonetheless.

    Got most of my Rats Nest together today. Three Swamp Rat Infi Ratmandu's with 3 custom sheaths. Have a standard Ratmandu on the way with another custom sheath ready to go.

    Sheaths are from David Brown: Sheaths | Buy Brown Ind Top two are Kydex while Bitter Sweet has a hybrid. All of the sheaths have Tek-Lok and scout-carry options. The stout Kydex dangler sheath on Orange Crush has an ESEE sheath pouch. I silenced it with some extra paracord.

    These are my 'The One' knives (at least for now).

    ESEE 3P in S35VN with G-10 scales. I substituted a Teklok for the ESEE clip.

    Just won this at auction from a custom maker. Very low price. Still need to pay for it and take posession:
