The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
This blog is written to share my experiences regarding the operation of my small knife business. Some of the experiences are good, some are not good, and some are in the middle somewhere. I would say my business is not a success yet because my expenses are larger than my income. However I am not going to quit yet, because I don’t think I have given it enough time. I am lucky I don’t need to do this for a living.
I finally purchased this Russell "Daddy" Barlow. About 5" long when closed with great saw cut handles, Russell with the arrow thru the "R" is etched on the blade as if it just came from the factory.
The tang has the Russell logo in a diamond shape, and the "R" with the arrow is emblazoned.
What is almost as nice as this 'minty' knife? It came wrapped in the original waxed-paper covering sitting in the original Russell box that displays the logo for John Russell Green River…Continue

Today 20/11/12 my first year anniversary on IKC, over the year IKC has been very nice to me! People here are very friendly and they always made me feel very welcome, friends are kind, answering any questions I have with patience and kindness. I just found the perfect place for me to come out of my routine life and share my ideas and ideals. Just the idea of having a place for knife lovers with all the comfort of a social network alone is just awesome.

We're closing in on Veteran's Day which is November 11. In an ongoing effort to show support for our wounded vets through the Wounded Warrior Project, I've got what I think is kind of a special knife to offer this year. It's no secret that I'm a big supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and past auctions have always been successful in raising funds to help out our returning wounded. Even though our combat role…Continue
I am a gun and knife collector and would like to know if anybody knows if the Case Knife Company ever produced a John Wayne Bowie Knife. I own a Chief Crazy Horse Knife and gun and was told Case made a John Wayne knife that looked a great deal like the Crazy Horse.
One day not long ago a customer told me this true story. He had a rather valuable knife with him and forgot to leave it in the car when he was flying out on a commercial aircraft. He got all the way to the security guards and they of course found the knife and would not let him past the security gate. He did not have enough time to take the knife back to the car or he would miss his flight. He pleaded with the guards to hold it for him, send it to him and pay them handsomely to do this,…Continue
Okay, the title says it all. I am not a english major, so don't ridicule my composition skills.
This blog will be my outlet for honest opinions and facts of knives that I found intriguing enough to buy for myself. With that being said, let us begin.
