Lets see your knives

Post by ChuckD » 11 Dec 2009, 12:20

Just curious as to what everyone's favorite knives are. I'll start off by showing my everyday folder and a large fixed blade a co-worker got me for Christmas last year.

Benchmade mini griptillian is by far my favorite pocket knife.
I haven't found a favorite fixed blade yet.

Does this include perhaps collectible WWII Daggers?

I have no pictures of my bladeware, but I can when I break for the semester.

Nice nice.

I like where this is going.
I wish I had more blades, but those two I've got pictured are my favorite two. Don't really get to use the fixed blade really, but the only other knife I truly have deep feelings for isn't at my current residence.
I have an old Ka-Bar with original Ka-Bar leather that's my deer knife my grandfather gave me.
I also have a VERY old Stag Case XX an elderly gentleman out in rural WV gave to me one night as I was doing some home theatre work at his home. It will hold a place in my heart as we were truly alike. He used to be the #1 Case dealer in the area and when he got out of the business, took everything with him. He has knives numbered #2. Whereas #1 sits as the Case Museum. He give me and my co-worker matching Stag Case Red Letter XX's new in their tissue paper from his stash. God Bless that man.

Whoa Chuck, I know you're straight and a good guy, but after a couple wines seeing a postline like show me your's and I'll show you mine freaks me out. :lmao: :lmao: :evil: :lmao: On a serious note, it is probably of good benefit to discuss it here. I always had something to gut a deer with, and on the job I cut down 5 or 6 guys who hung themselves, but honestly, I don't know squat about knives and can learn much from y'all. Thanks for the post. ff

I'm not too fond of serrated myself. They have their uses, but I just like a plain edge better.

Just wait till tomorrow guys, I'll pull out my collection when I get home and send you some WWII Blade Porn

Personally, I'm a straight blade kinda guy too.

Serrations, serve no purpose that I've found and I know my knives... Certainly not the serrations on a 1/2 and 1/2 blade.

I mostly use the Spyderco for butting power cable, 1/0 or bigger. It makes quick work of the thick sheath.

I don't have any specific reasons, just don't care for serrations on a folder. I don't need to saw anything at work.

Here are some of mine. The Leek and Chive at the bottom are Ti's. As you can see I like Kershaw's and spring assist open.

Thats the biggest I had. I have a very nice Damascus steel hunting knife with gut hook and stag handle but it's in my hunting bin and I have to dig it out.
