The ten commandments for knife collectors

First off, Iv'e been a minister for many years.Saying that, this is my spin on the ten commandments in regards to knife collectors. It is meant to be read in a lighthearted manner.....so here we go.

1. Don't love your new Boker knife more than God.

2. Don't carve any graven images to God with that 'ole whittler.

3. Don't cuss with God's name when you slice your finger open with that vintage Queen folder.

4. You can buy G.E.C. knives on the Sabbath, but go to…

The day is coming!

With all of the gun control news being spun out of control by the media, I see the writing on the wall for our knives and tools being next.

I live in Texas and we may not have as strict of laws concerning knives as some other states but we still have many. These laws can be vague for some and down right stupid too!

Case in point. In Texas, you can carry a concealed handgun (without a CHL) in your car or truck. At the same time, the law says you can't carry a knife that has more…

He saw my stone on the desk and asked me if I could put an edge on it for him.

I'm nothing special, never said I was, but how can someone who carries a knife not learn to use a sharpening tool?

keeping the rust, keeping the memories.

I'm the first to admit that I enjoy nothing more then taking an old knfe and making it shine again. It's very relaxing to me to do this. Saying that, I have found that I've regreted doing that to some, if not most of my found knives. Yes they clean up well, and yes they are more appealing to look at on display, but they seem to loose some of their beauty and character when this happens.

Sharpeners, the unsung heroes

We had a discussion earlier about sharpeners and which ones we used most. I would like to address these little (or not so little) tools that seem to fall to the wayside when it comes to knife collecting.

The knife in your sheath or pocket is only as good as the stone you use to sharpen it with. Everybody knows that a dull knife just wont get the job done, so, I want to talk just a little about my stone that i like most.

I was a teenager when my parents bought a house and in the…
