Camillus CK9: The knife used by Dual Survival's Grady Powell

Posted on May 5, 2016 at 22:12 3 Comments

Recently I had the chance to watch another episode of the current season of Dual Survival, & again got to see Grady Powell using the Camillus CK9.  Somewhere I saw someone online stating that Grady Powell designed the knife, but I have not yet been able to confirm or deny this.  Camillus has very little detail on the CK9 on its website, & of course TOPS doesn't have anything public about this on its website because it's not technically a TOPS knife.

Okay, this is an interesting story.  I don't know what to think of it.  I'm a big fan of TOPS Knives, but this story is too important to not post something about it.

Knife throwing, anyone? Anyone?

Are there any other knife throwers here? If so, anyone recognize the logo on the cup? :)

I notice there's not a group for throwers, hm...

Clean, measured knife-making!

This video from Gough Custom Knives just floored me -- his shop is so clean, & his work so measured...  This was 12 minutes of video worth watching, especially for those of us who have aspirations to make beautiful knives ourselves.

 That knife is actually for a good friend of mine. He wanted something unique and one of a kind but not to flashy. He loved it and wants a Bk-9 done next so I think he might be getting the Ka-bar bug too! Gotta love it! Really glad that I found you guy's...most people get bored with all my knife talk. Lol

I started out sewing by hand, and later bought a heavy duty machine.  I've actually been giving serious thought to selling my sewing machine and pursuing other hobbies.

I am sorry I didn't see this until today. July 12,2018.  To say I am late for thinking for a Happy Birthday is an understatement. Thank You.  I came on here today to see if I could sell my Automatic knives.  Ebay kicked my ad off.

Depending on the knife that you want to wrap, I like the way this one looks...
