I don't know if this is a good place to discuss, but i'd like to talk about knives. I don't really know what kind of knives are popular or which ones are the best. I'll start out by naming mine

Frost Woodsman Series. (don't really know if these are any good) and Gil Hibben throwers (forget the name, lost the blades over time, friends = /).

Post your knives, or knives that u like if u want.

thanks.

i've always been partial to a full tang bone handle bowie...never had one but i would love one.

as it is i collect folders...mostly lockbacks, some with a serrated edge, some with half a serrated and half a straight edge and some with just a straight edge.

i have a nice lockback folder i use for carving wood, it has a blade about 4 inches long with a dark hard wood inlayed brass handle. its a great knife.

most of my others knives have composite handles and are really light weight.

i dont go for the fantasy stuff...unless its actually usable. i like practical knives.

but fixed blade knives is something i want to get into.

Are frost blades any good?

yeah they're not bad. i like solengen blades, germans know how to make knives apparently, i have a very old ceremonial sword made by solengen and clauberg (i think thats how its spelled)

frost isnt bad though, not high high quality but not bottom of the barrel stuff either.

i like gerber and schrade (imperial is a part of schrade so its the same stuff). my favorite folder is a gerber.

I read in a magazine, a guy who makes custom knives that are generally very expensive, but hes letting a company sell them for cheaper... I forget his name and the company name, but one of the knives is a "assisted opening" knife, so its almost like a switch blade. He makes really cool folding knives. can't remember who it is though..

I am talking about kershaw and ken onion here btw.

I have carried a Spyderco Clip-It Endura for years and recently got a new one with a partially serrated edge instead of the fully serrated one. For real abusive tasks I have a Gerber Multi-plier tool. The knife I carried backpacking, and ostensibly for self-defense, was a Cold Steel Recon Tanto. That was a natural because I have training in the use of Japanese style knives. Knives are a good thing to know how to use. They don't ever jam or run out of ammo.

Frost Cutlery has their headquarters near where Ilive. They make some pretty good mid- to entry-level knives. They are a good deal for the money. You can get some amazing online prices on their stuff.

2 words: Ka-Bar. Of course "moto tools" (gerbers and leathermans) are becoming more common than ka-bars in the corps, but it'd by messy to kill someone with pliers.

i used to have a ka-bar...until it was taken from me...then i wanted to jam that ka-bar up their ass for taking it.

I love knives; one of my rarest is a Randall similar to the one below (F). It was made by Randall himself before he died. Other knives I like are Kershaw, Buck and Gerber. Kershaw being my favorite.

I've been a benchmade fan since I hefted the first one at the store, and have been the proud owner of two. First one is the McHenry & Williams 705 which I carry around for general stuff




and the second was my favorite, the 3550 Pardue Auto, which was a self opening similar to old swithblades. Got it from a friend who came across it, and put an edge on it nice enough to shave with.



I've also got a few misc knives around from Gerber, Ontario Knives, and of course Buck. At last count I think I had either 9 or 11 knives just sitting around my bedroom, so I think its safe to say I like to collect them.

ok i want to bring up something that is very important to any edged tool...sharpening...


now i have two steels in my kitchen that i use on my knives however i have a couple that could be ground down and resharpened.

so how do you resharpened your knives? wet stone? diamond stone?
how about when they're really bad and a steel just wont cut it? ever take em in to be professionally sharpened?

this applies to knives, axes, hatchets, etc.

ever file em down and then go over them with a finer sharpening tool?

This is the Galaxy 2000...




It is by far my favorite knife and although it is a fantasy piece, (made by frost cutlery I believe...I could be wrong. It could be Gil Hibben) I think it would make an excellent multi-application tool. It's bare bones with the only fancyness being a design (no doodad faux pearls or extruding pieces) that, in my opinion, is a very functional shape for hunting. It's a solid hunk of steel with two wood inlays, one for grip and the other for design...but it is nonetheless a design that does not intrude on the functionality on the piece.

My old Buck "Bucklite" is fourteen years old and it still looks and works as good as the day I purchased it. It's a 422 stainless folding blade with black high impact plastic handles and is just great for outdoors and multi-purpose use. Heres a picture of a newer, updated Bucklite, as I don't have any pictures of my actual knife in the computer...There are three basic differences from this one and mine...

1) Different handle styling yet it overall remains true to the original look.
2) The blade pictured is 442 stainless...mine is 422 stainless.
3) My knife has finger grooves all the way through. This one only has one at the top. I take if that since the handle seems more aerodynamically correct, extra grooves wouldn't be necessary.

It wouldnt suprise me in the least, Benchmade uses all kind of high-strengh metals. If I remember correctly my McHenry & Williams has titanium used in the opening mechanism. If you check out this page you can read about the various materials they use.

Also if you want to look at some more tactical type knives of very high quality, check out this link
