Just joined. User: streetlevel - thanks for the tip!

Haven't got my own picture yet, but I just got a new beauty to replace my previous knife which sadly never made it back from Detroit recently:

 

First impressions are that it's really pretty, the action is different from what I'm used to but feels smooth (coaxing a satisfying click out of it when flicking is difficult at first) and the worksmanship seems excellent. Mine has slightly darker bone than shown.

 

Really liking it so far!

Wow that is a beautiful SOG, is that a precious stone on the thumb stud?

Thanks :D

 

It's an Abalone jewel, which means it's I suppose a bit like a pearl. So semi-precious maybe. When I get my macro equipment out later I'll try and take some details.

Just grabbed a Kershaw Brawler (1990) from Amazon. Very nice knife for $25. I'll post some pics of it soon.

An old Ghurka Kukri, similar to this pic, but sadly without sheath or the smaller blades.

Just came in today, love Leeks for cases where I need a smaller EDC.

ordered a spyderco chinese lum yesterday.

Congrats on the purchase of the Lum Chinese, I love the one that I have with titanium scales. Like the blade design by the late Bob Lum.

Two new traditionals - the #47 Viper in smooth white bone, and #9 Esquire in black water buffalo horn. Make a nice little pair to tote around. 

 

 

Also got in my new Spyderco Southard. Really like it, even stock. I have an STR bladeworks deep carry clip on the way for it, and will be getting carbon fiber replacement scales for the brown G10.

Does this look like too good a deal to be true? A Laguiole knife with Damascus blade, reduced from £125.00 to £42.50?

If the Laguiole is genuine then that's an absolute bargain price. The only cautionary note I'd add, is that every knife on the Languiole website has a bulls head graphic and company name stamped into the knife blade, but perhaps they didn't do this with the damascus blades. Why not email Languiole the knife link and ask for their opinion?

Hmm... if you click on the seller's name (Perkin Knives) all their stock listed on Amazon is heavily discounted. But there are only 20-odd items, so maybe it's clearance stock.

 

Nice looking knife anyway, especially at that price...

Looking closer, the blade doesn't look the right shape.
