The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
This knife was found buried on the side of a hill at the site of an elementary school in Big Sur, CA; it was given to me by the principal because he knew that I collected knives. It obviously was…Continue
Picked up my first Bear & Sons pocket knife, a #354 1/2 Little Trapper in Yellow Delrin & CV blades, (3" closed). My local Ace Hardware franchise has semi-annual 20% off everything sales, and…Continue
A new acquisition. I collect Camillus-made Buck 300 series knives, and though I already have a CC-made 317, (the equivalent to this knife), I thought it would be nice to have both the Buck and…Continue
Hello again John. Picked up another coupla knives from the bay, ($6 each). Both in decent condition.I know a little something about the bottom knife, an all-metal IKCO "Boys" jack knife from the…Continue
Well, I didn't expect to find this, especially around here.
As stated in the title this is a Cold Steel Irish Blackhorn Walking Stick, (not to be confused with their Irish Blackthorn Shillelagh which has longer knobby things on the stick and sells for less). Smokey Mountain Knife Works sells these for $46.99, (when in stock), which is the reason I didn't buy one when I visited the store, the price was just a little high for me that day, (though…Continue
Found this little mirrored display case at a local antique shop, (though as usual it is NOT an antique). It can be set on a flat surface or hung on a wall.

They asked me to consider selling there because they know I collect, and they claim that old knives sell well. I intended on filling it with my "extras" and the many old knives I have collected over the…Continue
Found a decent little Winchester Stockman at a local antique store this week, but it's definitely not an antique. It's probably an import, but I couldn't find a matching knife at SMKW or even on Ebay, so it's origins are a mystery at the moment. There is no tang stamp or origin marks anywhere, only the blade etch and shield, (past SMKW offering?). Handle is likely "Stagalon", blades are SS and show no usage. Even though it probaly isn't from Alabama it was nice to find this locally,…Continue
I've shown various versions of this photo elsewhere on IKC, so instead of posting in a thread again I thought I would post this here as sort of a virtual storage area for current photos of my collection, kind of an IKC version of "cloud storage".
What differs in this photo is that it also contains my "other" Bucks, including my EDC's, (#310, #312, #314), and my two #110 Folding Hunters. None of those were shown in the case in the other photos I've posted. The only Buck missing is my…Continue
