Tobia, your great-grandpa's knife appears identical to the fixture in my grandfather's tackle box.

Pearl-y handle?

That little blade cleaned fish; straightened hooks; cut scrap off the boat prop; modified canvas; severed the rode when someone (ahem) fouled the anchor (but only after making me dive for it 3 or 4 times - Ontario in October, brrr); served up shore dinners and more.

Haven't thought about that stuff for a long time.
Thanks!

perswig, I'll take a better picture and post for you. I had another batch of knifes; but they don't compare to fancy ones on this thread. I have a very old axe worthy of posting.

ditto on the shanks.

Tobia: I had the same Buck knife as in your picture (in the center). I forgot to pack it in my checked luggage and after 20 mins of questioning, I gave it up at SFO when flying back home :(

strangeday: what kinda wood used for the pen knife? nice stuff!

Posted these on show me what you're building thread, but I guess they are on topic here.

Nice work just in!!

Here's a few....


My main rotation right now is a mix of older favorites, and newer ones.
Top to bottom:

Mora LMF stainless- great light weight fixed blade, and has a integrated fero rod in the handle. This is my around town fixed blade.

SOG pentagon elite II- an absolute workhorse knife I've had for 15 years. It's my main camping folder

Gerber ez out- one of my first "modern" folder. It replaced my Boy Scout buck light about 22 years ago. Still going strong

Kershaw clash- I'm not big on assisted openers, but the flipper on this is great when wearing gloves. The Chinese 8cr13mov steel is actually quite good for the money

CRKT ken onion wrinkle- smooth opening flipper, with aus8 steel, and aluminum scales. Just got it for $30 from woot. Great blade for the money.

Benchmade 300-1 - a current favorite I carry most of the time. Smooth flipper, axis lock, 154cm steel. Everything you want in a heavy duty EDC.

Kershaw rainbow leek- the standard new gentlemen's knife. Weak tip, but great slim carry, and very non threatening looking.

Spyderco persistence- one of spyderco's newer knives. China made, but great quality for the money. A great first introduction to spyderco.

Spyderco delica 4 superblue- a spyderco sprint run, of their famous delica. It has a Aogami hitachi blue carbon steel inner core, with 420J on the outside. An absolute classic.

Jason brous bionic- this is my main EDC knife. Jason is an up and coming custom maker, and the bionic was his first production run knife. D2 steel with aluminum scales and Ti clip. Mine is 372/1200 made. A superb small flipper for the money. You can still find these for about $160. Worth every penny.

Spyderco dragonfly H1- another classic spyderco design, updated with H1 steel. H1 is a nitrogen based steel, which will not rust, even submerged for weeks in salt water. This is my river/pool/jacuzzi knife (I ALWAYS have a knife in me)

Also-

Victorianox camper- my old boy scout knife, with added flame maple scales.

Opinel #8 carbon- my only in pocket knife. I mostly use it for eating lunch.

Leatherman wave- best multi tool ever.

I've also have about 20-30 others that rarely get carried, and mostly sit in storage, but once a year or so I'll mix it up, but for the most part, I carry the 300-1, and the bionic 90% of the time.

It's not a hobby, it's a sickness....

And let's not forget about sharpeners. The edge pro apex is expensive, but the best constant angle sharpener out there.

Ruana...the only for me, except my kitchen knives of course!!

Sorry, no pics. It lives in my ammo/camping can. Very nice and American made. I got the fishing model, the smokejumper is just a tad small for my tastes.

BTW, a lot of nice looking knives upthread!!

I just reviewed all the fine knives in this thread, except for EKats, where the photos don't post.

Gneiss knives Dooooodes!

I'm a little more tool oriented, and I've been packing one of these for about 40 years. I picked up this model in Switzerland a few years back.

I used to know a man who made little silver rings that fit tightly on the tweezers, so they would also work as roach-clips.

Great video Marlow, some mastery in there. What a shop too.

C. Wilmot, really like both those blades. What is the handle material on each?

Curly birch on both, with the skinner having stacked birch bark and two black leather spacers. The blades are available at Brisa.fi. Where do you get your blades? ( your rivets look really good btw)

Cool, I didn't see the leather spacer until you said it. Looks good.

I use Jantz, Texas Knifemakers Supply, and USA Knife Maker. USA kinda pissed me off on my last order, so probably won't use them anymore.
