Too bad they're ~ $200, illegal to import, illegal to own, and illegal to carry in Texas.
They're illegal in New York too.... but what cop is gonna waste his time of day looking for an obscure pocket knife (I would also wager that the average cop does not know the legalities of a switchblade or butterfly of the top of his head)? They're more worried about the guy in front of the Burger King with the Highlander™ replica katana tucked into his belt (Yes, I actually saw a guy wearing that at Burger King).

I had a damascus tanto blade balisong a few years back... some no good low-life stole it

My current arsenal include a cheap Frost™ folder (opening mail & boxes) and mostly Wusthof™ Classic kitchen knives. (The bread knife is generic).

HOLY **** those are cool. must be a bitch to sharpen though, i regret getting the partially serrated kershaw leek because im never really going to cut rope...

Nope, I have a EdgePro sharpening system... fantastic investment if you are a knife collector.

I have always held a fascination for well crafted knives, my brother in law started making knives as a hobby which inspired me to have a go too. This is my dive knife which was based on a Navy Seal blade from a few years ago.


The other knives in this folder are a few of the examples of my B-I-L's work, I have the good fortune of owning 2 of them.

My basic carry knife is a trusty Wenger which is still good after 20+ years of use. For more sturdy work, I use a KISS skeleton blade. thanks all for sharing..dB

The Scott Cook Small Owyhee Ironwood Hunter was delivered yesterday. It’s really nice. I was hoping this would satisfy my desire for a Lochsa. No dice- If the Owyhee Hunter is this nice the Lochsa must be amazing.

Scott Cook stopped taking orders over 2 years ago.

is anybody into the Cold Steel knives?

GI Tanto


Tai Pan


One of the various rescue knives


if you look up cold steel on youtube, youll find their various stress testing videos which involves plunging the knives through car hoods and doors and the knives are actually sharp enough to dive through the metal without the tip even bending a bit.

also the knives can cut through a 2" thick piece of rope in a single slash.

those things are crazy. the only thing that could easily damage a cold steel knife, is possibly another cold steel.

Typical CS BS. There knives aren't bad, but they don't live up to their reputation, so generally, avoid them.

i dont know, they arent all that expensive and those youtube videos look pretty convincing. the knives to avoid for me are anything from a swap meet, and anything made by BMF.

i noticed that my kershaw isnt really good at anything except for a common everyday carry and to cut boxes at work (computer store).

the SOG Trident looks very very appealing right now. i cant get a fixed blade because you cant conceal those, they are rather large, and very intimidating and cause for alarm when you pull them out in public, so im into assisted opener folders right now.

if i were to get a fixed knife, itd be for a camping trip and a tanto blade would look wicked, they offer the kershaw random leek, which is mine but with better steel and in tanto for 20 dollars more. id heartily recommend it because the kershaw leek isnt really useful for anything in particular.

Overhyped, yeah. And the owner is particulary annoying. But many are still excellent knives and excellent values at street price.

I mean really, how can you complain about performance like this for $20?
