"Hey J.J. The only PAL knife I have (and I will include it in the photos) is a RH36.  PAL did not acquire the Remington Cutlery product line until about 1941 or so.  So I am always looking to 'upgrade' my RH36 with a Dupont era…"

Colt CT823 Bandit Bowie

"Just noticed that 440A steel.  Is that steel a bit soft?  Might take an edge real nice and easy but it seems it would dull quickly.  Not much carbon in that alloy.  Only .6 to .75% if I am remembering my alloys correctly. I…"

Hey man...thanks for the friend request...of course I accepted! As for sending private messages, this is just fine - but if you truely want to send a private message - use the iKC email - upper right hand corner of your page in the area of your name, sign out, Fried requests, etc...

I wanted to start a formal stand-alone CFK group, but I could not accurately gauge  if it would be accepted or not - so I started the it as a sub-group in the Box Full of Knives Box of Knives. I'm glad i did - as I commented to Lead Left Knife Guy , I seem to be the only one playing in that sand box at the moment, and I'm not sure my ego could manage no one join a group!  LoL!

Right now it looks like it's just my thread....but if you add a post to it, then it will be as it is intended - a place to appreciate the CFK/iPAC brand.
