Will DA Vance Arrest Stephen Colbert for Switchblade Possession?

Given New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.'s campaign to shakedown and prosecute those selling or possessing so-called "illegal knives" (locking one-handed and assisted openers) in New… Continue

How I got into knives

I bet everyone has their own stories about how they got into knives, and from what I have heard it usually starts with "I got my first knife when I was 6", etc. Surprisingly, I didn't gain interests in knives until this past fall.

I go to school in Rochester, New York and a good friend of mine always EDCed a Spyderco of some sort. Some days he would rock out the Delica Foliage Green G10 and sometimes he would carry the discontiuned Spur fully serrated. I never understand…

NKCA Knife Show in Dalton, Ga this weekend

Due to contraints on my schedule I don't get to many knife shows during the year, but this weekend so far my schedule is working out to go.

When I first started collecting knives, I just didn't get it. No, I didn't get knife shows- not at all.

Honestly, I just thought they were for a bunch of old timers who traded knives among themselves.

But, I gave them a try- and got…

Want Some Entertainment you do not get in the knife Biz Often? A Real Knife Auction Live.... CUSTOM MAKERS and FOLDER COLLECTORS ALIKE


SO I have complained about eBay but not enough, frankly it's overwhelming to decide what more print worthy than somethings else you see the next day.... Ergo writer's block AKA Lazy writer syndrome.....

Sorry I have been consumed too but I do have some great stats..... CASE Vintage knives are up about 20% in volume of offerings, overall Case Volume of offering has increased from 5,400 in September to over 7,000 now.

Do you remember the first time?

Our lives are filled with a deluge of thoughts and image impressions. Our memories are, to put it in computer terms, like files on our hard drive. All day, every day, our internal video camera is recording everything our senses encounter. Just think of the shear amount of data our brains record on a daily basis and many studies conclude the brain retains this information for our lifetime.

And while it is interesting to ponder all that, I'm just an old knife guy who can't… Continue

Custom Knifemaker Tony Bose Interview

One of the all time favorite interviews I have had the opportunity to conduct was with legendary knifemaker Tony Bose. Tony is so easy to talk with and his colorful way of expressing himself made it a true pleasure.

I hope you will take some time to listen in on his interview. Tony tells us why he started making knives, in addition to candid advice for aspiring knife makers. He also provides an insider’s perspective on the custom knife market and today’s… Continue

All the Kinves on eBay

I see where Case has announced the Tang Stamp for 2010….

It makes me wonder…. Will today’s knives that we are buying (NEW) have the same long term value increases that we see in 50+ year old knives on today’s market?

If you have seen my portfolio you know that it is full of 20XX Case Blades…..

I have been observing with great scrutiny the run through of knives on eBay. I’m gathering some stats that reach beyond just the eBay digressions about policy and practice… Continue

A Rite of Passage in the Life of a Knife Collector- Memoirs of a Knife Collector

We all pass through significant events in life- Rites of Passage, they are called, by virtue of simply being alive. Examples include, a first kiss, turning 16, graduating from high school, getting married, having a child, the death of a parent, as well as our own eventual death (obviously, that's the last one), these are some of the passageways we must pass through as we travel… Continue

You better hold me back, cause I'm getting mad

My blood is boiling. This whole thing about the restricting of "permitted knives" is really making me mad now.

I recently posted over at CutleryNewsJournal about what will happen if the will of the people is to restrict knives- I'm talking about the majority of Americans- to the point Congress doesn't fight this left-wing attack on our rights.

Well, now, the… Continue

An Important Message to all iKC Community Members!

Thank goodness we have professional folks on the watch for threats to our everyday knife rights. There is a new proposed rule from the U S Custom Agency attempting to redefine many of our EDCs as illegal.

Please take a minute to listen to this important message from David Kowalski, the Communications Coordinator of the American Knife and Tool… Continue

We made the news!!

iKC made the news! I'm talking getting mentioned in a traditional offline knife publication. Yes Sir (figure of speech, there Ladies), we sure did....having Mark Zalesky, a friend and fellow iKC member as the editor, doesn't hurt either.

Mark was kind enough to plug our community in the current edition of Knife World. I must say, I have been a subscriber for many years and… Continue

Let's roll out a big invitation to join us here at iKC

OK, fellow iKC community members, we need to reach out to a knife guy we want here.

Check out the story and then click over… Continue

My Custom Ka-Bar BK2

Hello Friends!

Just this past week the NRA annual meeting was in town. We weren't going to go as guns are aren't high on the list right now. But we found out that CRKT was going so we decided to go.

Boy, I am I glad we did. After finding out that SEVERAL knife makers were going to be there we were really excited to go. And what made it even more exciting for me was the day before we were going I got my prize money form the 'My Favorite Knife' video contest.

So with money in hand… Continue

Even though I use and have a lot of firearms I wish they were NEVER invented. Anyone can pull a trigger. But, not everyone can use a Blade, Sword, Battle Axe, Tomahawk, Warhammer, Naginata, Manriki gusari etc...You can't fight a duel without any skills or kill someone with a knife a thousand yards away.

You have to be up close and looked them in the eyes, see what's going on, when you turn the… Continue

You can tell the person by the knife he owns

Don't you just love all the different types of knives folks own? All you have to do is look around our community to see it is like Baskin Robbins Ice Cream flavors.

Each person collects what they like and I think you can tell a lot about the person by the knife he (or she) owns, just like someone's hands tell you a lot about that person.

I won't try to detail all the different personalities and preferences here in our community, but I do find it very interesting.… Continue

Jogging Knife

Here's something I was thinking about the other day.

A couple of the actors and crew go jogging to help/stay in shape. Well thank you to the intense Az heat they have started running after the show. Which is 11 or so at night.

Now because of the way my mind works...my question to myself (and out loud) was if there was a knife made for self protection that one could carry while jogging...or biking...or something sport-y like that.

So I asked MY resident Knife… Continue
