The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
2015 was a good year. I added a lot of good knives to my Schrade collection. I was introduced to knives from Queen Cutlery and Great Eastern Cutlery. Post some pictures of what you added to your collection in 2015.
Schrade D'Holder Millennium knife

Schrade Barnett with red coral handles
Saving the Best for last is a Schrade 275 Clasp Knife with India Sambar Stag handles customized by Herman Williams
That Radio Jack is a beauty...I settled for a white bone Beer Scout..really wish I had waited until I found one in cocobolo. The Beer Scout is an EDC so maybe I'll still find one to display.
My Beer Scout is a Chestnut Saw cut Bone. I have probably posted this pic before but it's such a fluke I'll give it another run. Note the Kangaroo in the background taken at our kitchen window.
I also was blessed in 2015 with some great knives. Among them are as follows, A Colonial CE-400, which was sent to me free of charge, to test and review. I am very happy with this knife and wouldn't hesitate carrying it as my only means of a cutting tool, in a survival situation. Secondly, I received a TOPS, B.O.B. knife, which I purchased from a member here (John McDowell), at a very fair price. I bought this knife, with the intent of taking it to the woods on many camping trips, of which, I have started already. Thirdly, I received two knives from another member here (Greg Dash). The knives I received are the Bite and Jackal. I have yet to decide which one is my favorite, of the two. I really like the size of the Jackal and the carrying position and convenience of the Bite. The next knife, which I am very happy with is, the iKC Barlow knife. I have never been a Barlow lover, but once I laid eyes on this one, with ebony scales, I started to change my opinion of the Barlow. This is not by any means the only knives I received in 2015 that I like, but these are the ones that first come to mind.
Jeremy - nice knives good to hear you are out there 'using' them too.
I've an innate fondness for autos.
I checked one off my bucket list this year .. a double action Buck 110.
This one is my favorite.
Simple .. straightforward .. reliably sweet !!
2015 was a good knife year for me. I'm fabricating more & more .. 'n happier w/ the results. Improving .. perhaps.
Added quite a few to the collection .. gifted quite a few.
Of them all .. the pictured unit .. I've been most impressed.
Well , Doug Webber .. this should put a few off.
I purchased that knife direct from China through AliExpress.
However, I've been so impressed .. I purchased a second unit.
The assembly with threaded fasteners & identical stamping of the frame halves lends itself to an easy switch.
Flip the leverlock mechanism to the other side & a new set of scales ..viola.. a left handed version.
I received my first pocket knife for my 6th b'day .. I'm soon to be 59.
I recognize good steel when I use it .. 'n most certainly .. when sharpening time comes.
Prior to this knife .. Queen's PH-D2 was the hardest blade steel I owned.
This is every bit as hard as that. Diamond files not suggested .. required !!!
It's a no name no stamping wonderful knife.
No blade peek. Lock-up is secure. No blade play .. in any direction.
Tight construction .. no gaps between scales & frame .. good fit-n-finish.
Strong spring .. opening a formidable 3.75" blade .. quickly.
