PhoneLover, nice SnG you have there.
I get the impression those are knives that actually get used. (The FRN one in the back just looks like it's been used on tape, nothing bad - and I think the "chips" on the front blade are a function of the photograph, not the blade).
It's the blade that is down on the surface - there could be a lot going on there...the steel on those isn't prone to chipping like that. *shrug*
Storms today, so I don't have any good natural light to work with, but here are some bad cell phone pics of some newer acquisitions. I also have two new custom friction folders (a Daniel Fairly Titanium, and a custom higonokami with hammered copper from Shelby Mihalevich - but I'll have to grab pictures of them later.)
Traditionals - Hartkopf Solingen camp knife with ebony scales, and a GEC #92 Eureka Jack, in black/white buffalo horn.
Eh - I had a minute.
Daniel Fairly Titanium Friction folder (carbidized chisel edge) and Shelby Mihalevich higo with damascus and hammered copper.
And a Boker Kwaiken with titanium heat colored scales, and Benchmade 940-1 (S90V and carbon fiber, and custom deep carry heat blued titanium clip).
