Cold Steel SRK-C vs. Mora Garberg

At some point, I answered a question on a Facebook group for Mora users & collectors.  While that answer was a bit of a knife review in brief, I have no idea what happened to that reply I made and it's likely forever lost to the annals of Facebook.

The summary, however, is this:  the Cold Steel SRK-C ("C" standing for "compact") is a very viable alternative to the Mora Garberg.  The SRK-C has a saber grind, similar to the Garberg's, but the grind is higher, giving the SRK-C better…

Looked in the mirror and realized I had a face again!!

No more mask mandates, so it's nice to actually see folks faces again isn't it?

However, collecting didn't stop and here are a couple of new ones. A Craftsman 95068 Stockman Buck clone and a Camillus Buck clone. I have been looking for a 300 Series look-alike Camillus for years, and though I had seen photos this is the first I've seen that looked exactly like the Buck 300 Series knives made by Camillus up to 1986. The Craftsman looks more like a Schrade knife to me, mainly from it's…

Blade HQ Has Free Shipping for President's Day Weekend!

Hey all!  This time it's Blade HQ that's offering the free shipping -- and from what I can tell, there's no size limit!  (I often pick up a machete during the Blade HQ free shipping sales; I placed a machete in my cart again this time, & again, the shipping was listed as "FREE"!)  And as far as I can see, there's no minimum (I had a $12 item in my cart, & the shipping was also listed as "FREE").

The sale starts today, Friday, 2/18/22, & goes through President's Day,…

It's another FREE SHIPPING weekend @ Knifecenter.com!

Well well well, here we are yet again with a FREE SHIPPING weekend at Knifecenter.com!  Just use the code FREESHIP at checkout, & remember that certain exceptions apply (mostly the large stuff like machetes & heavy stuff like axes).

And while Atlantic Knife & White Mountain Knives have free shipping all the time, Knife Center has a larger inventory, so I think it's still worthwhile. 

While I'm not affiliated with Knifecenter.com in any way, I will disclose the fact…

SMKW's 12 Days of Christmas Sale is ON!

For those who may be interested (& I'm guessing that may be quite a lot of us), Smoky Mountain Knife Works is doing their annual 12 Days of Christmas sale -- & if you're reading this on Saturday, December 4, it's Day 4 of the sale.

They have some knives & other items on decent sale, along with a daily, advent-calendar-style special.  But for me, the really big thing is the free Fed Ex shipping with $39 purchase.  I'd be happier with no-minimum shipping, but let's face it,…

Sheaths, Scabbards, Frogs, and Throgs

I was wandering around some of the older discussions recently and I came across one that grabbed my interest. Eight years ago, iKC member Robert Burris started a discussion called “Knife Carry?” and asked the question “What is the difference between a "Sheath"...." Scabbard"... or "Frog?"…

Gone But Back With Bucks Of Course!

Been away for awhile, just got busy musically lately so have been a bit distracted with that after a 10 year absence, but of course collecting knives is still a passion, nothing has changed there. I have even lost track of all the knives I have gotten since my last post, but here are the knives I most recently got, there were a few others but I will post them when I get the chance. I have had a "thing" lately with Buck 310 Whittlers, (love 'em because they are rare and cool), and though they…

FREE SHIPPING @ Knife Center this weekend!

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. …

FREE SHIPPING @ BladeHQ for Labor Day has begun!

And here's another BladeHQ sale -- more importantly with FREE SHIPPING (no minimum -- oversized items probably excluded)!  

Here's the link:  https://www.bladehq.com/cat--Labor-Day-Sale-2021--3648

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…

Revisiting of an old topic....

Since we are seeing some knife shows resurfacing....It is always good to remember this.....

Knife Show Etiquette

Knife shows are a lot of fun.

They are best however, when visitors follow a few basic rules of courtesy.

These are:

Do not handle knives without permission.

Do not touch the blade or the edge of any knife offered or

displayed as a collector's item.

Do not wipe off the blade of a…

Just a quickie!

Found this Camillus-made Buck #333 Toothpick SFO on the bay in a very poorly listed and photographed listing, watched it and ended up getting it for about half of what I paid for the other one I already had. Oh well, the more the better I guess.

I'm out of control!

Here we go again, the first photo shows just what arrived today, but there are more coming, (egads!!). Two Buck #112 Slim Selects, (in different colors so I can color coordinate. Doesn't everybody do that?), a new Buck offering, a #891 Spear Point fixed blade with 5160 Spring Steel blade coated with ceramic Cerakote for durability and rust prevention, and comes with hand stitched tactical sheath. I don't usually buy fixed blades, but I have been more and more interested in them lately. I…

It's Sawcut Delrin Day!!

Just got my second vaccine shot so gave myself permission to go on a binge. These arrived today: US made Schrade Old Timer #50T with very nice sawcut Delrin handles and original sheath, (3 3/4" closed), the sawcut handles are what attracted me, have never seen it on a lockblade. Also received a really nice Colonial lockblade, (do not know the model number), also with sawcut Delrin, SS blade, (4" closed), with original sheath. Bought this one because it is the first Colonial lockblade I have…

Couple of last known Bucks and a Barlow

I just got two Bucks that are now discontinued, but I got them as the very last in stock at Copper and Clad. I had emailed Buck and asked if they were going to make either the #101 Folding Hunter Fixed Blade, or the #111 Folding Hunter again, (because I missed both when they did have them), and they said they had no plans to do so. I found that Copper and Clad had the #101 fixed blade, with one only left in stock, and they also had their exclusive #111 Folding Hunter with Sloped Bolsters,…
