Funny thing, balisong is pronounced almost the same as "kalsong" in Swedish. Which means underpants.

Yeah, it even says "balisong" on the box (and the knife too!) Calling them "butterfly knives" is a great way to catch pedants, though. Definitely going to get some mileage out of the "underpants" thing, for real.

also how dare you discriminate against the good folks of Batangas

As you can probably guess I have a thing for kukri style blades. Been thinking about buying the actual article but I just haven't been able to rationalize the expense when my S&W kukri is already a champ at eating bush.

AAAUGH


Just got my ESEE Izula II, this thing fukken rules. Longer handle than the Izula I, super grippy canvas micarta scales, small enough to go in a pants pocket. Easily my favorite fixed blade I own now. I like it so much I'm considering getting a second one so I can have a beater and a pristine copy.

It's a Smith & Wesson, doesn't have a model name though so to find it just google "Smith and Wesson Micarta" because micarta is apparently the material on the handle. Or here's the Amazon page for where I bought it Knife

It's a weird one, the handle is incredibly massive for starters. Also a little research shows that it wasn't a "true" S&W blade, as it was manufactured by Taylor cutlery, which outsourced the job to China. and for whatever reason these things have been sitting in storage for quite awhile. Regardless it razor sharp and tough as gently caress because of its girth.

It's actually the 13960, so unfortunately it has the giant HARLEY DAVIDSON etch on the other side of the blade. I'd have preferred they left that off and just used the HD logo on the clip and scale as those are much more subtle. The clip and blade steels are also different compared to a normal 960.

I'm pretty sure all S&W knives are made by Taylor Cutlery. I don't think there are any "true" S&W blades out there, but I could be wrong.

Well I'm completely ignorant on the subject so apologies if I was sounding like I knew what I was talking about. My other S&W knife didn't have the Taylor Cutlery mark on the box so I just assumed.

I bought one several years ago that was Taylor Cutlery. I'm talking like seven years ago I think? It was a good knife. Not the best, but still not bad at all.

Spyderco Paramilitary 2, Emerson CQC-7, Sebenza with micarta inlays, GEC Scout slipjoint. Man I'm loving these old-school knives by Great Eastern Cutlery. They have monster backsprings and everything about it feels like a quality tool from the 1960s or something back when things were built right.

I received my knife today, its a total beast. 1/4th inch thick 1095 steel, Green and black micarta handles. It's so beefy i feel like i could cut myself out of a wrecked car and kill bears with it. But because of the tanto blade hate here, I'm not sure pics would be appreciated..

TFR, Should i post pics of my newest stabbing implement, even though it goes against the "Don't buy a tanto ever" thing?

Sure, why not? Buy whatever you want. It's your money. The warning's there to hopefully stop Modern Warfare nerds from coming in here and asking what totally sick Strider they should buy.

Cold Steel are decent for the price. Do you want something classic or tactical? The SOG Fusion is a good low price tactical hawk. Fort Turner is a good place to look toward a classic style. I really want their Rogers Rangers hawk. You could also look at Crazy Crow for classic hawks. That is where I get my handles.


Gtab posted:

I hope that is a good thing. I have since broken that handle and need to refinish a new one and get new pictures of the tomahawk. I may do a short write up on my process if anyone is interested. It is fairly simple.

Also, here is an old picture of my patch knife featured in the previous pictures.

They were $20 each off the Matco truck

The only reason I have two of the tantos because I thought I lost one.

The silver one is pretty decent; the blade is nice and sharp and it flips out with almost no effort. Also, it is not a tanto.

Absolutely is. They're great pictures and that's one of the only tomahawks I've ever seen -- and I've seen a buuuuunch -- that I don't innately hate for being dumb as balls.

Please do post the process and stuff whenever you get around to it. That'd be cool as hell.

Alright. I will see if I can find my jewelers files and try to do something Sunday or Monday. I actually bought the tomahawk when I was working at Philmont scout ranch and since we had no electricity in the back country we would end up throwing hawks just about every night. They make a fun toy.

Ok, so here is the knife i just recieved from Jericoh blade works. It's the Honor Mk IV. Made out of 1095 steel, this has the desert "Patina" applied to it. It's a 4 inch blade, 1/4th thick. Black and green handles.




This is my first semi custom knife and i love it alot, its also sharp as hell. I am in the midst of talking to him about getting one of my folding knife blades translated into one of his fixed blade designs. It'll probly be august before i even see that one. Otherwise if it wouldnt work out as a fixed blade i'm going to be getting a guardian II MKIV from him instead.

EDIT: Those pictures have been brightened a bit.

EDIT: To correct steel type.

My occupation allows me to possess an automatic knife, and one of the instructors at my USAR class said it's definitely something you'd like to have if deployed. I know absolutely nothing about them, other than the Benchmade Infidel looks pretty tight.

Are there any for less than $200 USD that are worth buying?
