Unconventional Combat Knife.

I am researching my next knife article.  The article will be about unconventional combat knives.  I just finished and shipped out an article about Spyderco's Warrior which was designed by Guy Rafaeli who is an expert martial artist who lives in Israel.  Rafaeli teaches knife fighting to the SF of the Israel Defense Forces.  His rendition of the Warrior is made for only one thing….taking out bad guys nose to nose and toes to toes.  Check out the Warrior on Spyderco’s web site. …

When is a Chinese made knife NOT ok?

On the heels of AG Russell's statement...and my own blog on "Where does that knife come from?", this blog posting attempts to tackle another controversial issue; Chinese-made knives. Before I really get into answering the title's question of "When is a Chinese-made knife NOT ok?", I should probably lay a little groundwork:


* I have Chinese-made knives in my collection. I do. They are from a variety of manufacturer's brands. Some are liner locks. Some are slip joints. Some are…

In Memoriam
The Knife Hobby

No other hobby transcends so many other hobbies, sports, and occupations like the knife hobby does. It also transcends trades, careers, finances, politics, etc. For example, there might be a banker talking to a ditch digger about knives and enjoying the conversation, where usually they would have nothing in common.

I have multiple hobbies, like many people - Some…

New Wounded Warrior Knife Auction Starts Today!!!

The history of this particular knife deserves some explanation.

This spring, Luca, who is an active member of the IKC board, put the time and effort into putting together the orders necessary for a special run of #362211STL Sunfish finished with Black Buffalo Horn.  It turned out to be an outstanding looking Sunfish.  As this was 'his project' I asked him and got the okay for a Prototype knife of the series which would be auctioned for the Wounded Warrior Project. 

My intent… Continue

What country does that knife come from?

Recently, I read multiple postings on the AG Russell forum. People were discussing the pros and cons of where knives are made. Predominantly, the discussion seemed to revolve around the somewhat controversial topic of whether or not people should buy knives that aren't made in the USA. Reviewing those postings got my mind to thinking...so I've decided to share some of those thoughts here.


First, I think that it's important that we be able to voice our opinions without people…

Tom Ray Toe Nail

This is the Tom Ray knife that I have been trying to send. 

 The knife belonged to a friends grand dad.  The back spring was broken.  I found a junk knife on e bayand had the knife rebuild.  All The parts with the exception of the back spring are orginal.  I would like for somebody to give me a idea what the knife is worth.  I will more than likely sell the knife as it is the only toe nail I have and most of my collection is case pocket knives and these things sell to high for me to…

Were tactical tomahawks ever issued to the military as a weapon?

I just received my copy of the Nov. issue of Knives Illustrated which will be on the newstands the first of October. Check it out.


My article is "Tomahawks as Tactical Weapons".  I explored the Vietnam Tomahawk issue with a former LRRP Ranger who was there from 1968 to 1969.  I would like some feedback from this group about the subject of are tomahawks

For instance, I have a Navy Seal friend of 18 years service as a Seal and retired from the Navy with over 20 years…
