Have seriously contemplated moving up to a .45. Problem is ... I handle what I own so well I don't see the wisdom in change at this point.

I'd recommend Federal HST in the appropriate caliber. I have a G43 and use HST 124 gr +P. It is boisterous. I carry a Spyderco Byrd Hawkbill folder. Both the G43 and the Syderco are plain, relatively cheap and easily replaced. Blue Label G43 is about $360 and the Syderco is under $25. The HST is about $16-18 /50 rounds at police supply stores. I don't own safe queens; everybody has to work. Fixed blades are my Navy MK V diver's knife [the USMC KaBar with MK V on it] and a Glock field knife. Functional and easily replaceable.

I love the enduras. Nice size. Well balanced. Good for various grips. Just a well designed knife.

Kali does a lot of kerambit. but according to grand tuhon leo gaje (grand puba of pekiti) training kerambits are verbotin. He likens them to a terrorists weapon. But lots of kali guys still train with it.

Its interesting the differences between kali knife technique and the silat versions of the knife and how the malay and indos utilize it as opposed to the filipinos. Different strategies n everything for the same weapon and both very effective.

Way off and out there, but one thing I have always wanted to learn is to use an atlatl....just kinda think it would be cool really.

Visit the Meadowcroft Rock Shelter in SW PA [near a town called Avella] and you can try out their atlatl.

That MadDog is pretty slick OP, I'd love to get my hands on a SEAL ATAK, though most of my $$$$ seems to go towards the older stuff.

Here's a few from my collection...

Randall - Model 5


Treeman - Skinner


Treeman - Fighter


2 Hawks - Woodsman


Chris Reeve - Pacific


Israeli Dustar - Arad


And finally the ones that do the dirty work...
Cold Steel - Master Hunter
Buck - Model 112


The latter two, I do carry, and they can shave the hairs off a fly.

Nice knifes and guns everyone.

I used to collect knifes way back (mainly for fishing and hunting) now all I've got is kitchen knives lol.

Good thread OP

Nice blades!

My EDC is always my Spyderco paramilitary II. I have so many knives but I always come back to this one. Spyderco makes great knives and I have used this one so often and it is still as good as new.



Custom knifes a great but there are a lot of very quality manufactures that you could trust your life with as well. Benchmade, Cold Steel, micro-tech, Spyderco, Almar just to name a few.

Love those treeman blades! Nice pics too. Your Reeve remix fed me I've been wanting to get a new Sebenza.

I've always wanted a few knives I could sorta "put back" for my son, but I just don't have the money right now. I carry a Gerber Icon and have had it for several years. It's help up pretty well, but I think it may be about time to find a new one. I've heard some have had trouble with the linerlock not holding, but mine's done very well. I don't sink big bucks into knives because am hard on them. And I mean HARD
I expect them to hold up to everything I do and I ask quite a bit from them. Trimming tree branches, sharpen a pencil, pruning rose bushes, digging holes and slicing roots, opening boxes, cleaning game...You name it and I put a blade through it.
Amazingly enough, this little $30 knife has done it all and still holds an edge. My favorite has always been the Ignitor T, from Columbia River Knife and Tool. www.crkt.com...
TOUGH little knife, with a very fast assisted opening and what they call "Veff" serrations. Cuts thick rope like butter.
Think I'm gonna get me another.

ETA...Guess I should throw in that my EDC is a Glock 19 with 147 gr. Gold Dot...or HST.

Yeah...the main reason I have customs is because I know a lot of the knifemaket personally and like to support them when I can. Many actually design for the production companies, like Ken Onion, Kit Carson, Neil Blackwood, and Jim Burke....and can't leave out old Tom Mayo....

Awesome! I carry a custom-made knife with me everyday for work purposes, and it's great!

I'll definitely keep this thread in my mind when it comes to getting more.

Thanks

Love CRKT. Kit Carson designs a lot of their knives and I believe Gerry McGinnis does too...hes a young knifenaking prodigy of sorts.

My EDC knife is a CRKT Ripple designed by Ken Onion. Here is a link.
It has held up nicely for me for a number of years. Opens very quickly with one hand. Cleans up nicely, deer guts and what not.

Great knife....the IKBS guys that dseigned the bearings for the pivot on those knives are really cool. Ken Onion has a really cool story too....he was in the hospital with a bad work injury when he came up with the Speed Safe assisted opener and Kershaw has put it in almost all of their folders. Super nice guy....his customs get up to around $8k+ typically, and sell out faster than you can sneeze. Beautiful work on his customs...
