What's your "holy grail" of knives?

Somewhere on another forum someone wanted to know what my "grail knife" was.

Now for me a grail knife is something that is nigh unobtainable. I don't mean just expensive, (or even expensive) but something that you'd have to seriously fight for to get it.

For me that knife was found when I saw pictures of a collaboration between David Broadwell and Burt Foster.

There's always been something about Subhilt Fighters for me. I've yet to own one but the…

Making My 1st Knife

Anyone who has looked at my profile knows that I am a newcomer  to the knife world.

Last fall I attended a local knife show.I was completely taken in by the diversity of personal collections. by the high level of craftsmanship of makers. By the warmth & friendliness of the people which I encountered. They all seemed more than happy to share their experience as well as the general chit chat. Needless to say it made a lasting impression.

Ballard Baker, a local knife maker is…

Once again, I'll pick up my little story about Burke, Idaho. In Part #4, I conveyed a snapshot of history involving the most infamous of the Hercules Silve Mine's owners, Mr. Horsley. I also started to show you some images of the Hecla Mining Operation that lined one side of the town of Burke. I promised more photos...so here we go!

Though in Part 4, I showed…

Lloyd's knife.

"Ping", "Ping", Ping". The craftman's hammer falls, driving the pin and setting the blade.

He straightens himself from his bench and works the newly set blade against it's spring. A smooth action and a solid "click" proves that the blade is set well and the lock up is tight. This is just another step before a finished product, one that may end up spending his life in the silk purse of a rich man, or in the pocket of the dirt poor farmer down the road, either way, it's prepared…

HB 2548 will amend Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes. The current definition of “offensive weapon” will be updated including…

^ Pocket Knives and One Pouch!

Recently I bought six pocket knives that came with just one pouch.


Well, for one I wanted the pouch.  It looked pretty cool.  Old leather that seemed to still be in good shape.  Plus I wanted one of the knives.  An I-SL George Wostenholm that seemed to be a vintage Barlow that has the Wostenholm tang etching of Oil The Joints.

So I bid on the group, very few bidders and I got the knife I wanted (and the pouch) for sixty bucks...plus five…

Contest #4. We have a Wiener....errrrr.....uhhhhhh.....WINNER!!!!!

We are almost at the end of the week long Contest #4, this contest has been a lot more difficult than I thought that it would be.  But I could tell you guys were really working at it trying to decipher the clues and make them help you get to the right answer.

I figured it would take people 3 or 4 answers to get to a winning answer.

We didn't attract as many people to the contest as I had hoped but I appreciate each of you joining in on the fun.

So, we will have some…
