"Knives & Swords Collector" App for iPhone & iPad -- a review

A few days ago I was on my iPhone searching for who knows what, & for some reason I found myself in the App Store -- a rare occurrence for me.  Somehow I stumbled upon this app called Knives & Swords Collector.  The app touted to be filled with data on knives & a great way to inventory a knife & sword collection.  "At $5.99, it better be," was the first thought that came to mind.However, as I looked around the App Store, there were only a couple other applications ("apps" for…See More

Camillus CK9: The knife used by Dual Survival's Grady Powell

Posted on May 5, 2016 at 22:12 3 Comments

Recently I had the chance to watch another episode of the current season of Dual Survival, & again got to see Grady Powell using the Camillus CK9.  Somewhere I saw someone online stating that Grady Powell designed the knife, but I have not yet been able to confirm or deny this.  Camillus has very little detail on the CK9 on its website, & of course TOPS doesn't have anything public about this on its website because it's not technically a TOPS knife.

Clean, measured knife-making!

This video from Gough Custom Knives just floored me -- his shop is so clean, & his work so measured...  This was 12 minutes of video worth watching, especially for those of us who have aspirations to make beautiful knives ourselves.
