The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Having recently endured a cervical vertebrectomy, (removal of discs and bone, replaced with bone grafts & SS plates leaving my spinal cord exposed until the grafts grow in), I wondered if the surgeon had cut out the part of me that addictively purchases collectible pocket knives? I got my answer today with the arrival of a 1990 Buck #314 Buckbone Trapper. My neck seems to be healing up well, but the urge to practice retail therapy remains. I already have a #312 Buckbone Mini Trapper from…Continue
The TOPS C.U.T. 4.0 is one of my favorite fixed blade knives. It is one of my favorite because of several reasons. The design of this knife allows the holder a very strong grip. While cleaning deer and the like, no matter how much blood you get on the handle it will not slip from your hand.
This knife comes…Continue
I have another one for everyone.
Here is another knife from the auction box.
It seems to be from the Middle east and the construction is of good quality.
There are makers marks on the blade and the year 1971.Continue
Can anyone help me out with identifying this knife.
I saw a picture of one a long time ago but I can't find any information now.
It seems to be made of Plasticine or something similar with real hair for the beard, real teeth, and some type of real horn for the hat.
The blade is not high quality and only has stainless printed on it, no names or other markings.
It is kind of freaky, tell me I'm not cursed by having this thing!
Any information would be…Continue
Had a wonderful few minutes eating a bite and dreaming about the factory activity that used to go on here .....ENJOY !!!Continue
I just received my Linder Dachs Folding Knife With Partridge Wood. A little brother for my Puma.
Made in the same German town - Solingen - as the Puma. Seems to be the same outstanding quality.
1.4110 stainless steel blade. Hardness 58 HRC. Partridge wood handle, nickel silver bolsters. 8 cm closed.
Blade length: 2.36″ (6 cm)
Total length: 5.51″ (14 cm)
Blade thickness: 0.11″ (2,7 mm)
Even though I have been having some medical issues lately, my desire, (ie; addiction), to acquire new and different slipjoints continues unabated. Though I was unable to sit at the computer till recently, (had an epidural last week so I am able to sit up a little better now), I still managed to find a couple of knives that were in my opinion "must haves".
A friend in the BCCI, (Buck Collectors Club), suggested I begin looking for Camillus "clones" of the 300 Series knives…Continue

Anybody know anything about the above company?? All I can find so far in my books are.......USA ? 1920s ? I'd appreciate any help on that company..
Stopped at the mini mart just down the street today, and when I came out I was approached by what I thought was a panhandler. However, instead of asking for spare change the guy asked if I wanted to buy a knife!? He handed me this Cold Steel Counter Point II and said, "I'll take $5 for it". I wasn't sure exactly how much this was worth being an import, but I figured $5 was a good deal nonetheless. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth I handed him a fiver, got in my car and…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. I picked this up with the intention of installing a lock and using it as a sales display for knives at a local consignment antique store. 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
I found and obtained this 1988 Buck #301 Stockman in Yellow Sawcut Delrin to honor my passed stepson Joshua to commemorate his birth year. I will keep it for now, but when his 2 yr old son Roman grows up I'll make sure he gets it. I must admit that going on from here will be difficult, at times nearly impossible, but I must honor Josh's memory and keep him alive in my heart. So, I honor him as any good knife collector would do and bought this knife as something to forever remind me of…Continue
One of these days, after I stop spending all my disposable income on pocket knives I should buy myself a good DSLR camera. Trying to get a decent photo of pocket knives seems to elude me using the little Canon "point & shoot" that I have. Inside or outside I never seem to be able to get the light right. Oh well, inferior photo or not here is my collection of the Camillus-made Buck Special Factory Order knives made for and sold exclusively by Smoky Mountain Knife Works. In this photo are…Continue

Since completing my Buck 300 Series collection, (ie; one of each regular model made by Camillus between 1972-1986), I have been on another mission; to collect one of each model of the Buck 300 Series SFO's, (special factory orders). It has taken me over two years to complete, but today's mail delivery put the final knife in my hands. I now have at least one of each model, (still working on one of each version, a whole other mission). Below are the latest arrivals; Buck #331 Grandaddy Barlow…Continue
