Great pict Tom! That Griptilian sure got some use and shows it! I agree with what Tom said about tactical knives being more "tacti-cool" than anything else. I actually don't like the term tactical but most people know the kind of knife that you are talking about when you say it and that is the only reason that I use it.

To answer Scotts question, I think I am more drawn to tactical knives because of their design and all around look. For most of my life I have grown up with newer age, more aggressive knife designs and they are what have stuck to me. I really like the more modern materials that are used like G-10, carbon fiber, etc that give a knife a completely different feel than jigged bone or wood. Also, I am attracted to newer blade shapes and unique opening mechanisms like the Kershaw External Toggle and the CRKT fulcrum to name a few.

While I am more drawn to newer knife designs I have a large appreciation for all the older and more traditional ones as well. Without the Buck 110, Case trapper and many others knives would not be where they are today.

I really like your questions Scott and please don't think they are dumb. I have many questions for you as well!

Yea, I sort of went into that mode a little while back. But now I look to more of the useful style of knives.

I guess the main appeal for these 'tactical' (tacti-cool would be more of a correct term, ahahha) knives is simple the materials and design. Many of the tactical knives would serve little purpose for what I do (they'd work, but I wouldn't like it).

I guess for that comment would be more for fixed blades. As for folders, there is the use of carbon fiber, G-10, titanium scales, etc., etc., but also the design of the knives are just "too" cool. But mainly it IS the cool patterning designs. I.E. the SOCOMs sleek nearly symmetrical blade to handle or the Nimravus' textured aluminum handles (that totally tear up your hands when using them without gloves, :D )

Honestly if I owned some of the mainstream tactical knives, I can almost guarantee they'd come back in a few pieces (maybe not Strider, though I probably could with a few of their models, or Crusader Forge, but the vast majority, yes)... this would just be under my "normal use." :D

OK. Hopefully, my joining won't keep folks from joining or run y'all off, BUT I have some questions for your group.

I won't pepper you with all of them at once and will pop in and ask at time goes on.

My first "dumb" question is this (now you know I lean heavily to vintage knife patterns, OK?) what it is about these "tactical" knives that appeals to you guys, esp. considering there are fancy customs and old traditional patterns out there? I am intrigued with the younger collectors going tactical, which is why I want to learn more.

Just a few cool pics of some sweet tactical knives. I actually don't own the SOCOM in S90V, Mini SOCOM LE in S60V, fully serrated Endura 4, and the BM 970 anymore. Sad... isn't it?
