I've worn the Spyderco 79mm rescue for the last decade and have used it to remove others from two potential life threatening situations.
It doesn't clean fingernails as well as my old Buck knife but, it will chew through most things fast.

That looks like it'd be painful to carry Icey.

If i wear one its usually the Havalon Piranta Z knife which has an autopsy scalpel blade on it. I use those for skinning and such.

some of my fav shops knives are Victrinoux CHEAPO plastic handled -- but what sweeties when it comes to re sharpening.

Blades were made out of one of the saw blades from the original Hess Mill in Mammoth and the handles are Brazilian rosewood.

Ekat, what's the Hess Mill, and how did someone envision making them into cutlery? Gotta be a story there.

HA. . . there is a story there. . . Blanchard's and my first house, in Mammoth, was one of the USDA Forest Service Rec. Residences behind Slocum's. It was built in the 20s from local lumber harvested, pretty much on site and milled at the Hess Mill, the very first sawmill in Mammoth. There was a really cool hand-dug trench running through the settlement, that brought water to the mill. Much of it has naturally filled in over the years, but if you know where to look you can find it.

Nonetheless, long story short. . . the Feds stepped in and made us all get the hell out of the forest and let the long standing Special Use Permits expire and we either had to move our houses onto land that actually came with them (about 200 yards away) or eradicate them, one way or another.

The house was cool, but it wasn't what we wanted to put on the 1/4 acre (200 yards away). . . so we took the f*#ker apart. . . stick by stick. . . and when we got to the dirt, VOILA! There was that saw blade.

SOOOOOOOO. . . bein' the RecycleKing that he is, Blanchard kept it. . . . because the steel was just the right kind to use for other stuff (high carbon?). . . and. . . years later, he made those knives for me as a surprise Christmas gift. . . everybody in Mammoth knew I was gettin' 'em, but me.

HA!

They were the talk of the town.

They are magnificent.

I use them everyday!

:-)

He still takes care of them for me. . . everytime he comes up, he works his magic on them. His is a rare and precious gift!

They were rarely used as weapons, mainly as status symbols and uniform adornments.
Still, they are nonetheless designed for only one purpose...

Very sharp, and well balanced for throwing. Not much good in the kitchen..

I'm with Ron on this one. I use several knives daily, for hours sometimes. I prefer the cheapo Vitornox or Forschner blades for exactly the reason Ron said, they sharpen well. They are hardened all the way through, but not too hard like Henkels.
