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…

What do you makers do with scrap/leftover material?

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?

French Knives : Fontenille-Pataud

In my opinion, Fontenille-Pataud makes the most beautiful European (not only French) production knives.

I'm fond of their skills.

They have Laguioles...…

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…

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…

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.

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

All the Knives on eBay

All the knives on eBay

Over in one of iKC’s discussion areas, Scott had this factoid about “All the knives on eBay” and his post made me begin to think about. It made me think a lot of how eBay has driven this business without much concern for the wishes or needs of buyers and sellers, or more importantly, the historical manor knife buying, selling and trading occurred prior to their existence.

Few of us can say we have not used eBay ourselves… It is the new 24/7… Continue

Been dealing with more HATERS...I was inspired to write this poem and post it as a video.

These are my rifles

These are my guns

Both are for shooting

Which can be quite fun

If you don't like either

Why are you here!?!?

You haven't posted one video

But, are a JERK not a DEAR

If you don't like my channel, videos, or my voice

Go watch something else

You know you have that choice

I also post… Continue

This first knife fight from High Art/Exposure/Grand Arte(1991-different titles in different countries) is very realistic...a knife fight will most likely be over in 20-30 seconds...rarely last 2 minutes... that would be an eternity...

1st assailant got it through the subclavian artery and the 2nd through the adominal aorta..."Lights out in London" for… Continue

In Memoriam
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

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
