The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I sure enjoyed Gus Marsh's presentation Wednesday night on Schrade. It gave me a renewed appreciation for a great cutlery. So I got to looking over my Schrade collection and wanted to re-share with you in this blog. Feel free to share yours here also. Maybe your special ones or all of them.
