Well, since I make 'em...I'd have to say--MINE!!

Hey, if you guys want to hook in to THE knifemaking community, and chat with the preeminent makers around the world, jump over to

One word of warning, though...and please don't take this personally, guys...if you mention Frost Cutlery, be prepared to get ribbed mercilessly. It's not that the guys over at BFC are stuck-up, or that there's anything wrong with FC stuff (heck, most of us knifeknuts are just happy that folks are accepting that it's okay to have edged toys!), it's just that most of the makers over there are professional craftsmen, dedicated to making solid, utilitarian pieces. Comparing Frost Cutlery's work to theirs is roughly analagous to comparing Harlequin romance novels to J.R.R. Tolkien, Homer, or the Bible (depending on your literary preference!!

So, take it with a grain of salt, and take a look around, because the stuff some of these guys do is AMAZING. Daryl Meier (the GOD of Damascus Steel), Darrel Ralph, and Jerry Fisk (National Treasure) all hang out over there, among dozens of others!! Good stuff!!!

I saw these knives for sale in Maine last year. Not really sure what they are good for, but they looked really wild...

Funny thing I was going to tell the SWMBO to get me a new pocker knife for father's Day.

I have a collection of bladed weapons...and other fighting implements. Also collect, carve/construct and train with (as well as train others in) a number of my own cultures Traditional Fighting Weapons.

Actually favour them over my firearms...they *seem* more raw and pure in design and application. Bladed weapons, to me hold almost a sense of 'spirit' to them...I find them profoundly beautiful, almost containing a 'life essence' so to speak. No, I am not some nut-case huddling in a dark corner meticulously cleaning my knives...though my most treasured one, a Kukri, I do call 'My Precious'...just ignore the blood on the blade

I keep a short Japanese sword near by at home. I prefer that to any gun, truthfully. its about 24inches long (blade length) and honed to a fine edge. Love it. its like an extension of my hand, lightweight and perfect balance.

i just like knives without flip out action or something...straight knives rule w/ a sheath of course its easier to pull out instead of flipping em and cutting your yourself...and i think pulling it out already leaves you in a stabbing position....

I have alot of swords myself, but only 8 knives.

Here's a list:

1: Blade Dagger/Boumerang replica
2: Jungle Knife/Blade
3: A classic Tanto with scripture on the blade
4: A costom made Tanto to go together with my battle ready Blade sword.
5: Fantasy Gladiator Dagger going together with the replica sword from the movie Gladiator
6: A costom dagger by my own design made by my late grandfather.
7 and 8: Costom daggers by my own design and made by myself when my grandad was teaching me his trade.

If you want a really good knife, sword or dagger, I suggest you have it made for you personaly.

I wear only concealed or hidden knives.Ialways wear a single bladed belt buckle knife.Iam not keen on folding knives so I wear a bowen belt knife with a rounded buckle.Very good very sharp and never noticed when wearing it in full view even by the police or c.i.d it has served me well and is always handy.

I a butterfly knife but i cant do all the fancy stuff like flipping round fingers if you knw what i mean?

The topic of knives can start alot of arguments but i think it is fairly simple. The answer is the best knife for you is the knife that best suits your needs. Also consider what you are using the knife for and what you are willing to spend. The best knife is still only as good as the person using it though.

Well if I'm gonna be fighting for my life there's only one sort of knife I want- the old kind that has a pistol attatched to it!

While a gun would obviously be better than a knife in a life or death situation one will not always be on hand. Unlike in the movies guns also run out of ammunition and when that happens they are at best exepensive clubs.
