SMKW's 12 Days of Christmas Sale is ON!

For those who may be interested (& I'm guessing that may be quite a lot of us), Smoky Mountain Knife Works is doing their annual 12 Days of Christmas sale -- & if you're reading this on Saturday, December 4, it's Day 4 of the sale.

They have some knives & other items on decent sale, along with a daily, advent-calendar-style special.  But for me, the really big thing is the free Fed Ex shipping with $39 purchase.  I'd be happier with no-minimum shipping, but let's face it,…

Sheaths, Scabbards, Frogs, and Throgs

I was wandering around some of the older discussions recently and I came across one that grabbed my interest. Eight years ago, iKC member Robert Burris started a discussion called “Knife Carry?” and asked the question “What is the difference between a "Sheath"...." Scabbard"... or "Frog?"…

Couple of last known Bucks and a Barlow

I just got two Bucks that are now discontinued, but I got them as the very last in stock at Copper and Clad. I had emailed Buck and asked if they were going to make either the #101 Folding Hunter Fixed Blade, or the #111 Folding Hunter again, (because I missed both when they did have them), and they said they had no plans to do so. I found that Copper and Clad had the #101 fixed blade, with one only left in stock, and they also had their exclusive #111 Folding Hunter with Sloped Bolsters,…

KnifeAddictsAnonymous KAA

I was thinking how tough it would  be to give up the use of a knife or reading about them, for even one day, I got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe if I develop a 10 step program, I will be able to bring my addiction under control. I need those who are not suffering too bad ( yet ) to make suggestions as to what those 10 steps might be. 

Disclaimer:

I take no responsibility for what may occur to others who choose to follow  the suggestions for a KAA program. And, I do…

The Top Five Boker Fixed Blade Knives! (Look! I made a Top Five list!)

The Top Five Boker Fixed Blade Knives

(Since 1955)

As you may already know, I am a fan of Boker knives. I am not so much a fan of “Top 5” or “Top 10” lists, but so many people are doing it, there must be something to it! I have limited this list to post-WW2 knives, because the pre-war knives are so difficult to find nowadays. All the knives in this list are still being produced by the Heinrich Boker Baumwerk in Solingen, Germany. So if…

Custom Knives by Alan Davis

Thought I would start a blog here to showcase the work of my favorite knifemaker.   I stumbled across Alan Davis, a knifemaker from Boerne, Texas, in late 2012.  I was blown away by his knife designs.  Even more astounding was the fact that they were virtually all one of a kind creations.  Alan didn't just make one or two patterns and then just outfit them with different materials.  Each and every one was pretty much different.  While he did have a few designs that people seemed to like and…

Razor sharpening .

A shortish blog on sharpening straight razors. It will be short because I know little enough , though I have learned enough to be able to get the job done . Maybe I can return to this in future when I have more information but for the present it will be brief .

1 . If you want to learn to shave using a straight razor the most effective way is to buy a new razor from a dealer who is known for sharpening their razors before sending them out . Buy a strop at the same time , not a…
