Out of all my knives ranging from kershaw to gerber my favorite knife would be my benchmade griptillian. It has proved reliable and resistant to everything i throw at it.
SWISS ARMY KNIFE - SAK (example only)
The knife I call the ultimate in manufactured. You can put 200 of them in your hand and each and every one of the will be identical. They are machine made in mass quantities and have proven to be a reliable knife over many years. Every knife collector I know has one in the collection. Until iKC I did not realize the extent of the variables. I did not know short runs existed.…Continue
We had a discussion earlier about sharpeners and which ones we used most. I would like to address these little (or not so little) tools that seem to fall to the wayside when it comes to knife collecting.
The knife in your sheath or pocket is only as good as the stone you use to sharpen it with. Everybody knows that a dull knife just wont get the job done, so, I want to talk just a little about my stone that i like most.

Statements I have recently heard include
"I dont know why people say the quality is inconsistent, I have never bought a bad one"
"I never should have listened to the bad reviews, I always knew them to be a good company with a good product"

What I hear when I read comments like that is :

Recently we saw a case where a bad video…Continue

Not two knives, but two different manufacturing periods. If you have looked at many Schrade-Waldens you will find that you will come across some that don't look like others, as far as machining, grinding, and handles. Those with celluloid handles and bone look exactly like Schrade Cuts, but are stamped "Schrade-Walden". Exactly. The second Schrade-Walden you'll encounter is made exactly like their later "Schrade" marked knives. Exactly...machining, grinding, everything. And the'll have…Continue
Recently we have had some discussions in the chat about auctions and utilizing a buyers market to obtain that one special peice, or even just find it, in an auction site as big as ebay.
