Hey Tobias, just watched both your toothpick videos. Very nice. I've been collecting toothpicks for a few years now (selling a few now, actually) and there's something about that slim pattern I've always enjoyed. It's interesting how much the blade can vary, even within the same brand. I have two 5" Case knives and one has a fantastic sabre grind and the other more modern Case XX has a really exaggerated clip flat grind. A question...do you know anything about candy stripe toothpicks? I was looking to get one back when I collected more often and it seems they were very popular for a while, so much so they had sort of a do-it-yourself kit to make them. I've seen a couple at flea markets and the celluloid scales always seem to be falling off or gassing out, so I decided against getting one (no particular brand). Just wondering if you had any history or insight on them.

Tobias,
I too really like the handle material. It does not look smooth but has that worn look which I find normally feels well in hand. I am also very happy to hear that you have been pleased with all the Bear & Son toothpicks. I have not recently ordered any of their product but the quality comments I have been hearing are all positive.

Nice toothpick, Tobias. I like that color.

And the latest addition to my ever growing collection is yet another  5" Toothpick.  My latest is another Bear & Son; this time it is from their Kodiak line.  The knife features Autumn Feather Jigged Bone scales.  Essentially that is burnt orange bone with sort of a pocket work texture to the jigging.   I managed to get it for around $25 shipped!   (I was willing to go quite a bit higher.)  I've yet to be disappointed with a Bear & Son toothpick.

My latest video discuss the difference between a Toothpick and Fish-Knife.   I know many people will argue that they are the same but for me the Toothpick is a distinct knife pattern.  The fish-knife has at least one key difference to the standard Toothpick.  Essentially it is a battle between form vs. function.

Even if you disagree with me, I hope you like the video.

If you follow iKC on Facebook then this is almost a repeat.  After quite a while, I finally got a 5" toothpick in the White Smooth Bone.  What is even cooler is it is a limited production (1 of 100) SFO that was made for SMKW by Bear & Son. 

Awesome looking knife with a wicked blade.  Totaly excellent California Clip with a razor sharp saber grind.  Blade if 420HC with a titanium coating.  Brass pins and liners, nickel silver bolsters.  Fit and finish is excellent.  blade has a great snap, nice and tight with no wobble.  Got it all, Papers, tin, the works. 

A close up of the shield, 019 of 100 etch on bolster and B&S tang stamp

The full 9 inches (well 8 7/8 inches)

That makes four so far.  The India Stag and White Smooth Bone both have Titanium coated blades.  All but the Green jigged are  1 of 100 numbered SFO for SMKW.  The bottom is Green Jigged Bone has a distinctive Kentucky Shield.  Not sure how many were made but it was also an SFO.
