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.

Okay, this is an interesting story.  I don't know what to think of it.  I'm a big fan of TOPS Knives, but this story is too important to not post something about it.

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.

I am sorry I didn't see this until today. July 12,2018.  To say I am late for thinking for a Happy Birthday is an understatement. Thank You.  I came on here today to see if I could sell my Automatic knives.  Ebay kicked my ad off.
