knife-fi?

post #1 of 1737
Thread Starter 
is anyone into knives? nothing is manlier than a knife collection... except for illegal fireworks and guns.

i recently started getting into folding knives, i have an SOG Flash II and just won a kershaw leek off of ebay. these two knives are the closest things to a legal switchblade. depending on your state/city, youll actually be able to carry it on your persons all day. i know i do, ive been pulled over with some friends and ive said "im carrying a knife which im allowed to carry by the state" and he looked at it and gave my friend his well deserved speeding ticket. its clipped onto my pocket all day and i dont even notice it until i need it.

i know we've all come into a situation where a knife would have come in handy. i use mine to open boxes, letters, fight bears, and more recently, prepare firewood for bonfires

Why would you volunteer that information at a traffic stop?

Microtech SOCOM for EDC. I have many others including Kershaws, but the SOCOM is the perfect folder to me.

There already is a knife-fi thread btw

but anyway I have a Spyderco Delica 4 and some cheap Gerber knife I use for "rough" stuff that I don't wan to put the delica 4 through.


Perfect little knife.
Wave feature, clip, nice grip, sturdy, light, nice blade... I can't thing of anything wrong with it. Wouldn't change a thing.

and to quote someone else on this forum;

"it's like pulling a fixed blade out of your pocket"

Does kitchen knives count ?

I’m starting to get into semi-custom and custom knives. Last night I won this Scott Cook Owyhee Ironwood Hunter:



Scott Cook stopped taking orders 2 years ago and no one has stock on any of his knives.


I’ve had 2 Chris Reeve Sebenzas with Damascus blades- they were works of art and I sold them since I wasn’t going to cut anything with them.





Busse Combat has some real nice blades and they want you to use and abuse them- some are basically sharpened pry bars.

LOL!

Anywho, I have been a knife-fi since I was a kid. My dad got me a BUCK locking pocket knife when I was about 10. It had a dark wood handle & brass, and was about 3 1/2" folded. A few years later in my teens I got myself, at a Pawnshop, a Buck Special 8" fixed blade knife...the one that Jason used many times in Halloween movies.

Right now I am looking to get a Kershaw Black Gulch II

My everyday carry is a Leatherman Charge Ti. Also have an Arc AAA flashlight stuck in one of the stretch pouches on the sheath. Been very glad I've had both on many occations.

Kitchen knives I have a pretty complete set of Wusthof Grand-Prix series.

Wouldn't mind getting one of Doug Ritter's folders.

Anyone else find this incredibly neat?

Too bad they're ~ $200, illegal to import, illegal to own, and illegal to carry in Texas.

my EDC is my Kershaw Scallion (in idiot friendly blue and gray colors ) or my Benchmade Mini Pika.

I'd love a microtech Halo though
