The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
That is just flat out cool! Thanks for sharing!
Here are a couple of new Fashion Classics I recently acquired.
While I like the traditional Red, I loves that the little Class SD is made with so many different scales. I know it is donw purely for collectors sake. I also like that they do offewr a limited number os different scales in other sizes or with little design etches. It is nice to have the olive Hunter or blue Skipper in 111mm pattern or the angler with the fish design, etc. Otherwise, all the knives start looking pretty much the same.
May, you're right, they are nice knives, but not for me. I'm a traditionalist as well.

Hi Wayne.. interesting article on these decorative knives.. I think I did see some in a shop and couldn't believe the designing.. just didn't feel right or somehow not as meaningful to me being an old fashioned gal will stick to the traditional red handled knife..with the SAK Cross and Shield. Maybe its some kind of allegiance or friendship with these knives..like staying with Guinness, Wooden Boats, Border Collies and Books ( made of paper ). cheers, Anna
The former is an Italian limited edition created by "Milan Design Academy", and i own the "x-ray" (link)
The other ones are French limited editions
