    Mike McRae was a great bladesmith that was inspired by the knives of Scotland. Sadly he no longer smith's. We have 4 other pieces of his (including one of his master-smith submissions), but we never got one of his dirks. It was the first knife Sunday from the Sprit of Steel show.

    craw2.jpg This is Pat Crawford monohandle one hand knife dating from 30+ years ago. The design is one of the seminal knives that became the ubiquitous one hand openers we carry. It was the last knife from Sunday at the Spirit of Steel show.

    A little bit late, but... Stag has pores, something like oak or walnut, but not quite - you can see them on the ground off section on the handles. And it tends to get sticky as you hold it for a couple of minutes, especially if your hands are a little bit damp from sweat. That is if it's not varnished.

    I’m really liking the size and light weight of the 0357. It’s about the size as my favorite 0566 but feels lighter in the hand 5D3323A6-471C-4B19-AFE8-D24C500A19F4.jpeg

    I was going through a tote of hunting stuff and came across this knife.

    I was the winning bidder at a DU banquet table auction. One of those paid to much but goes to a good cause....

    I got a deal so it wouldn't reflect buying them accurately. Work like this can be $75-$150 each.

    Wow that’s surprisingly affordable in my opinion.

    It can be much more, but standard examples are on Etsy in that range.

    I got both these for $70 at the auction.

    Bought a cheap Ozark Trail assisted knife that comes in a holiday gift set. The SOG I was carrying and mentioned in my previous post here was starting to tick me off. It got tossed in the bin of former EDC knives.

    Had to replace my old one that I seem to have misplaced & I like these.

    A lot of blade, super light, the perfect gentleman’s knife.
    Dad taught me that a gentleman always carries a sharp knife, a handkerchief, & a handgun.

    Kabat USMC fighting knife, the old classic. I found these a good lknife for a range of field tasks and 7" was still long enough to stick large hogs when I was into that sport. I got one again recently for general use.

    Next to a reclaimed patch of swampland called D.C.
    Didn't actually buy this knife... The "Birthday Faerie" (my wife) got it for me... :)

    This is my first "neck knife" -- although the Boltaron sheath can be configured for belt carry in multiple orientations (default is vertical carry).

    So far, I like the ergonomics... The highly corrosion-resistant LC200N steel is a nice "feature."

    I have been searching for a new EDC knife since SOG left me swinging in the wind on replacing a simple, missing part. Decided to go back to my "roots" of knife carry. Got myself a Ka-bar Jarosz folder

    Everyone here is extolling the virtues of their inexpensive Mora’s, so I picked up a pair to keep in the cars, just because.

    Tried one, shaved the hair on the back of my hand, pretty sharp as far as I’m concerned. Under $25 for the pair, delivered, in stainless.

    First Mora I’ve bought since I got that wood handled one in Sweden about 50 years ago. Still no rust, when they say stainless they mean it.

    Can anyone tell me what that "button" is for on the front of the sheath?
