Man do I wish my family was more open minded. I asked my brother how long before I could give my nephew a nice pocket knife, but said if desired I could leave that first knife to his father (my brother) to figure out. You know, sort of a respect the father and son relationship and that perhaps the first knife should come from the kid's dad. He told me a few more years.............. If this is how the kid is raised I have literally no one to leave my guns to, so I will either find cool younger people to gift them to, or just sell them all some day and keep a few.
The kid is 14 for crying out loud. there's a fundamental difference between people who see a knife as a cutting tool that can be pressed into defensive service if needed, and people like my brother, who see all knives as weapons. I wonder if my brother is scared at dinner all the time.
Ok, I'm off topic.............. sorry. Frustration. He just had a birthday and I really want to give him a decent knife. I don't see him often and I'd like him to have something from his uncle to carry around and use. I'd kind of like it to be a thing between us. I'm already thinking about a high school graduation present.
Those are all gorgeous knives, but the Toucan and the Snafu............................ man those are hitting on all 8 cylinders. Wonderful knives.
Sad, please let me know if I'm younger than you, I'm only 74. lol
Seriously, it is sad if he feels he can't trust his 14 year old with a knife.
They are hard to sharpen and hard to dull.
It just arrived tonight.
Good for you! Nearly 40 years is too long to go without another Gerber Guardian!
I have 4 knives incoming. Two are gifts. Two are gifts for me LOL! Stupid Cyber Sale week.
I'll post pics when they arrive.
The first is a Randall Model 11 Alaskan stainless:
And, as nice as the Alaskan looked, I thought I would be a little disappointed with the 26-4 Pathfinder stainless with a 25 handle. Well, that is not the case, this is one SWEET little knife:
Weren't you all fired up about Ganzo copying other products?
I certainly have complained about Ganzo (and other companies) ripping off other's designs, but in this case the knives weren't knockoffs of other's intellectual property. For the most part Ganzo appears to work from their own designs in their old autos (I'd say I haven't seen them copy others' work in their autos, but then I've not seen all their autos).
1984 German issue gravity knife.
Sorry for the stock photo, wifey wrapped it up and under the tree, my punishment for having it delivered in December...
Bought it to go with my Browning Buckmark I put on layaway last week...
