Notes on Building a Knife Collection

Like many (but certainly not all) new knife collectors, I started my knife collecting focused on fixed blades -- why would anyone bother with folders? I thought -- it's not like anyone's going to…Continue

Okay, technically it's a KAI family photo, since there are 2 Zero Tolerance knives in there (left-most folder, one on each step -- upper step has the 0452, lower step has the 0350, both with scale mods -- I know, fancy, right?).I made a quick…

"Awesome!  I've had that "Original Bowie" clip point for years now but never used it.  On mine, the handle scales are not even with the tang, & the balance is weirdly blade-heavy.  But still I jut really like it!"

Hello again there everybody!  (For some reason these words are going through my head in the voice of Nick Shabazz -- for those of you who don't know him, type his name into YouTube for incredibly informative knife reviews -- with a lot of dry but often intelligent humor.  But I digress.)

What I am really posting about today is YET ANOTHER WEEKEND OF FREE SHIPPING, this time from Knifecenter.com. …

Oh, & the sale states that it runs through Monday.  Oddly, there's a clock they gratuitously posted for the sale -- fine enough, but it runs down through midnight Sunday (&not Labor Day Monday, which was…

Thank you dead_left_knife_guy. I haven't worked in the Sheffield cutlery industry since 1984 but I still have a passion for Sheffield's industrial heritage.  Cutlery plays a massive part in that.

In case you don't follow up on the Ash dagger thread (I was a bit wordy), here is the updated Ash Knife web site:

I have a SP8 in my camper and two air force survivors knives. One that has never been used the other I found at work. It is the one I take on most of my outdoor activities. Here's the ones that get used a lot in the yard.

Thanks for the welcome, it's good to be here. And yes, I have seen that funny vid from the guy complaining how gec 'ruined' him. I know the feeling well. Spyderco collectors love to complain about getting skunked on a sprint run but that is nothing. At least you can buy some kind of PM2 or Shaman when you want. Try liking a knife company and NEVER being able to buy a new knife from a dealer. That is GEC world.

Thanks for the welcome, Dead Left!

Looks like a great place to touch down every now and then.

Maybe I can talk you out of some of that equipment you still have! :)

Thank you, but this is my first attempt at restoration. I have a couple others I am gonna be working on as well 

(They're just not as cool)

But all I have used so far on that knife is heavy scotch brite and a lower setting on my dremel with a wire wheel. 

I haven't begun anything on the handle yet, I'm trying to decide what I want to do to save the stacked leather if possible

Thanks for the welcoming, it's cool to be here
