I looked it up and it looks pretty good. Thanks.

not bad, but the sides of the bottom 3 don't look so good, and i swear the very last knife has nicks in the middle.

 

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).

Makes sense (the knives being used), but I have no idea how a camera could make the blade look like that. Maybe it doesn't catch the light due to a difference in angles.

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.)

 

New and customized Spyderco - Vallotton Sub Hilt, Bead blasted Hungarian, and Southard with custom carbon scales and STR deep carry clip. 

 

 

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).

New custom fixed blade from Leif Lambertson - W2 with hamon, and almond burl handles (carbon fiber pins, and a hidden lanyard recess) - not my picture yet, but I have the knife in hand, and it's a beauty.

For giggles bunch of blades I grabbed around the house.

 

Cheap, dispensable Bahco mora - actually useful and used tool

EKA folder - more of a toy

Mushroom knife - life necessity

Victorinox Manager - too small to be very useful, but just fine as a keychain EDC

Victorinox Spirit X - look at that thing, as beautiful as it is useful

2014 BF Traditional forum knife. "Stag Jack" - turned out to be a beauty. 

 

 

I've also, apparently, been unconsciously collecting Carbon fiber... Just a quick grab of the ones I noticed gathering in my drawer. (the Southard with the custom CF scale is my most commonly carried modern).

Ended up selling the Carbon fiber CRK. I just wasn't carrying it, and couldn't justify having it sitting around. Swapped it for a vintage (60s) Omega Automatic 565.

Pics pls.

When it arrives, certainly. :) I also swapped a couple vintage slip-joints (John Primble, and Schrade Walden) for a mid 50's Bulova. Also en-route.

post #1753 of 1769

Here's the 1954 Bulova. Omega is coming from overseas, so it's a bit unpredictable. 

 

 

 

 

And since this is a knife sub-group, here it is with a period buddy. A mid 50's Schrade Walden 702 serpentine jack.

I have an affinity for Becker knives.  Here is my latest Becker, a BK15, after stripping the black coating and electro-etching the logo:

 

 

Here is the whole family for KaBar/Beckers:

 

Top to bottom: BK9, BK2, BK15, KaBar Necker, BK14

 

They see some use :wink_face:
