The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Hi Guys, I have a knife that I purchased a few years ago that is hand scribed on the blade," Handcrafted by H A Beauchamp". I found a G Beauchamp custom maker. Is this the same maker or possibly a coincidence? I can post pics as this knife is very similar to the G Beauchamp with a nice scrimshaw Eagle and mirror polished blade.
Thanks for any input. Mike
I received two beautiful old Sheffield (I think) stags today.
You can see one is a foldingg knife and the other is a very large Bowie or hunting knife (?) I'm not sure. I bought these from a guy on All About Pocket Knives (AAPK). I have bought a few knives from him over the last two years and I always print out info when I buy them but I can't find it today. And he always sends printed info when he ships a knife, but not this time.
And what do you know....the Bowie or…Continue
My dad always said beware the man with one gun, he knows it inside and out. I wonder if its the same with knife people?
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.
A hearty 3-finger Steel Sahlute!
Today I'll be submitting a press release, indicating that the Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Series Scout knife will be auctioned off on eBay after I complete the review.
The amount of money bid on the knife (less ebay & Paypal fees) will be donated to the Boy Scouts (…
As for a lot of us we love collecting knives. but it seems before you know it there are so many knives they are crowding your wife's shelves in the hutch and taking up room on the shelf under the t.v, even hanging on the walls. This happens to a lot of us knife collector's. Sometimes we seem overwhelmed because we like to show off our collection. We don't want them sitting in a drawers and safes and places were they can not be seen. Even when you put them in knife rolls it seems like you…Continue

With expected consistency, all knife enthusiasts see articles, videos and postings that talk about the level of quality in a variety of knives. Certainly, we've all heard people proclaim that certain knives have the “best quality”. Just as often, we've heard other people espouse an opinion on that same knife...that is contrary to what the other person claimed. So all this hubbub got me to thinking; Quality...what is it? Frankly, that's a BIG question. It's a subject matter of massive…Continue
Have you ever wondered how traditional knife patterns got their names? Well I have. Names like Congress, Trapper, Stockman, Moose, Cigar and heres a good one... Muskrat. Well who and when did these knifes get their names. Everyone may know the answer and I'm just in the dark on this, if not lets hear the reasons.

From the time I was a young boy I loved looking and watching my dad buying and collecting knives.When he gave me my first knife I was in love . I starting going to places to buy knives. Some days I would go to the hardware store and just gaze thru the glass case thinking of witch one I wanted to get next. Then when I started working I would pull my knife out to cut something and people would ask me were I got that.and I would tell them. It always gave us something to talk about.
Hey everybody Marty here with another gun and knife show .I attended this show earlier today in a town regularly visited by myself. I have to say I was a little disappointed compared to the last show I attended in Cape Girardeau the admission there was $6 and females got in for free. Today's event was $8 and females also had to pay. This event there were maybe 1 or 2 tables of knives and it didn't come close to having 300 tables like…Continue

I made this from all leftovers (apart from the sheath), and it made me wonder. Does anyone else recycle/re-use/fiddle around with leftovers like I tend to do?
Gonna have a little fun- and if anyone here gets PO'd at me, well, I'm sorry. But this will be fun and keep you on your toes.
Starting today, I'm starting a series called The Name Game. Yeap, I'm going to post a picture of a character from the knife industry or cutlery history and your job is to guess who it is. I'll provide a little clue too. Prizes? Probably…Continue

But what was driving the effect? The team's initial hypothesis was that the behavior is driven by a classic Pavlovian response. "Behavioral neuroscience suggests that when I put something appetizing in front of you, your brain activates motor…
There is a school of thought that says two is one and one is none. I first heard this from the movie G.I. Jane. It may be a movie, but since I seriously got into the knife collecting and survivalist culture I realized that a lot of experts and sources actually advocate this kind of thinking.
Another school of thought that I crossed was…
