FOR ME I KNOW WHAT I WANT IN A HANDLE MATERIAL SOMETHING WITH A GOOD GRIP. SO I GUESS FOR ME A FAVORITE WOULD BE G-10 HANDLES, SO THERE IS NO SLIP OR VERY LITTLE SLIP WHEN I AM CHOPPING WOOD OR WHEN I'M CAMPING AND HUNTING.
BUT ON THE OTHER HAND I LOVE THE LOOK OF BEAUTIFUL WOODS. SO I GUESS YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE TWO FAVORITE'S ONE FOR THE USER KNIFE AND ONE FOR THE COLLECTOR KNIFE.

Last saturday was the annual DKE in Tiel the Netherlands. This was my fourth time going to it and I always really enjoy it. This year was a little different though because of two reasons:
1) The show was a lot bigger with close to a 100 standholders.
2) It was my first time being there as a standholder.
I had been preparing for this show thouroughly for the past few months and had a (very) full table to show.
(This is me at my table right before the doors… Continue

This week just no one is bidding on any of my knives.
Yet I bid on just one knife and today I lose by one dollah
Why can't those peeps bid on the knives I am selling instead of the knife I am trying to buy?

Anyone in Gadsden Alabama??
I have a friend who wrote a book about Sleeper Cars, in fact if you build or try to masquerade your fast street car and make it look like a common everyday car----chances are you read his book.
For the rest of us knife collectors, usually we also like guns, motorcycles and cars. OK, well whiskey...and chicks too!!
They just all go together.

I was waiting on UPS to deliver my order from SMKW and they were late. My kids beat them home and the four Marbles I had ordered is now just two. So much for being a Dad with two collector offspring. Hope they like them as much as I do. Got to place another order. Bring on tomorrow! I cant wait. Happy Easter everyone! I wonder what my kids are getting for easter? Bet it will be sharp looking.

Just bought my first knife off of eBay,a giraffe bone hunting knife from England. I'll let you know how this works out. I'm a little afraid, never bought any out of the states before. Might be a live and learn lesson.
