Expensive, but the best knives are from Busse, Swamp Rat, and Scrap Yard hands down.

Thats ONE brand lol!

 

You'll find that the actual performance of INFI steel is similar to a well heat-treated A2 at the same thickness. Their thickness is just REALLY high lol. I had their "thin" Active Duty which is something like 1/8" thick and I noticed the edge retention was about the same as my BRKT's in A2. BRKT's and other knives in 3v however :)

 

I recently acquired a Team Gemini Light Brigade that was so effin thick that I wasn't even able to cut simple stuff at home until I put just a silly sharp edge on it. I understand it's for "big boy tasks" but damn I'm not gonna use it to demolish my house LOL.

 

BUT:

 

Before you get mad at me, I collected them for a reason, they are sick blades, the guys behind the knives are wonderful people I've met in person, and they handle their customers with love and pride for their products.

I know what your saying. The only 2 I have left are an Active Duty and a Ratmandu. The Busse Knives are the most beautiful, love the handles. Yeah, they will take out your house, car LOL They can take a beating that's for sure. Very big following at Blade Forum.

What is the difference in quality between a pre-1980 Buck 110 and a newer one? Anyone know.

whoa - what are those... Terzuola? I like the look of them. A lot. 

 

Hah. Found them. I still like them, but not *that* much. :) I'm pretty sure my wife would leave me for spending that much on a blade. 

 

I've still got my eye on a Blackjack model 12 boot knife, but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Blackjack 12 is aight. I know both the guys who run BRKT. Amazing knives, great service, great pricing, US made.

Lol i make like no money. I just appreciate handcrafted products so I buy/sell/trade custom knives to afford them. If you ever want a hoot, google my name on Bladeforums and check my started threads for sales lawl.

I dont see what the fuss is over the cqc6 by Ernest Emerson is. The ATCF came first and it has better fit and finish.

Chris - so now I've been looking more closely at Bark River and have pretty much settled on a Mini Fox River (which more or less fits the legal regs here).

 

 

 

What I'm wondering is if you know of any pocket sheaths that have a clip on the back allowing them to double as an IWB sheath... I didn't see any on KSF, but wondered if you knew of any others.

 

Something like this that I can flip inside my waistband as an option.

Something like that is like illegal where I live but I carry balisongs and autos all the time actually..

The mini fox river is awesome, I have the full sized one at home but I don't use it for anything manly so it mainly sits there as a trophy. For the price I paid for it secondhand I don't mind it at all.

Aye - Balisongs and Autos are illegal here, the law seems a bit fuzzy on fixed blades though...seems to fixate on blade length and the nomenclature "stilleto and dagger", I know folders under 2.5 are fine - I'm less clear on if all  fixed blades are out, or if those under the size limit are ok... 

 

Anyway, I'm debating if I want to court that issue or not. I may get another folder instead where I feel like the length issue is less "in your face" to a passing cop. 

 

This one is my current love (I have a soft spot for traditionals, and already have a few tacticals) and depending on the coin toss this weekend, is where I would go if I don't get the Mini Fox River.

Imo fixed blades are the way to go. Love the solidness of a fixed. And really depending of how you carry knives, you can hide them quite easily. I carry a 3.5" blade, 6.5" overall knife and noone knows I have it ever basically.

Ive been on head-fi for a little while now and decided to lurk the gear fi forums, and i saw this forum. I recently got in to knives thanks to my dad, he bought me my first knife which is a boker plus folder. I then went on to purchase a kabar zk war sword. You guys have some really nice blades btw.
