Challenge is Expose someone to Knife Collecting and to iKC

I am and have been involved with a lot of knife clubs, not one of them has brought the pleasure and fun that iKC has

the clubs always end up the  same, fewer people show, except to get the club knife. Lots of disagreements

arguments, etc,,, Hard feelings over chosen or not chosen ideas. iKC is a fresh exciting idea cultivated by a group in a knife club that just happens to be online. The perspective here is open, friendly and never dull!

So, i try to expose all my…

The New Glock Model 42 - Shot Show 2014

I know that here on iKnifeCollector.com we are all expecting a plethora of new knife reviews from Shot Show 2014 but I have to admit that one of the announcements that piqued my interest was the announcement of the new Glock Model 42 in .380ACP.  In my humble opinion, Glock has spent too much time resting on its laurels and not competing in the fast growing semi-auto handgun market.  Consumers are still begging…

Knife Collecting Budget Blues

You only have $20.00 to spend on a knife to feed your never ending collecting craving, 

My question is What knife will you buy? and Why? 

My choice is a Rough Rider 3 Blade Sowbelly I like the Candy stripe white/red bone handles, and its a Sowbelly which is what I collect primarily.

Who makes the knives you buy?

Knives that are made in other country's

Even though these knives may equal the value you

Expect , what is the greater good it delivers?

Many buyers want a china price , many buyers are

Happy to pay more for USA made. My uncle Richard

Died fighting for our country as did many others some your

Family or friends .

Many members here today defended our… Continue

Colonial Knife Company, My Family Business..the book.

Please let me introduce myself. My name is Robert Anthony Paolantonio, third generation owner, stockholder and cutler of Colonial Knife Company, Inc...

Since they were all cutler's from the old country, Frozolone Italy, they all work hard in the cutlery industry…
