Microtech ultratech Auto OTF

Lots of ideas and opinions in this arena, the OTF auto knife nich of the market. I really like the ultratech the feel in your hand and pocket, it carries well. The construction is solid, the action is fast and locks up hard. These are hard use knives designed for battle and self defense.

The ultratech is just one model offered by Microtech knives which are made in the USA , they pride theirselves in the use of the best materials possible. Located in Bradford PA. They are building a new… Continue

Who made who?

That knife you just aquired has a tang stamp that ID 's the maker. Most of us are familier with 95 percent of the manufactuers, but what about new collectors or a stamp that we just havent looked at before?

where do you go to ID a knife ? what is you personal choice of reference? 

This may help new and old collectors alike.

Challenge is Expose someone to Knife Collecting and to iKC

the clubs always end up the  same, fewer people show, except to get the club knife. Lots of disagreements

So, i try to expose all my…

Knife Collecting Budget Blues

You only have $20.00 to spend on a knife to feed your never ending collecting craving, 

My question is What knife will you buy? and Why? 

My choice is a Rough Rider 3 Blade Sowbelly I like the Candy stripe white/red bone handles, and its a Sowbelly which is what I collect primarily.

Who makes the knives you buy?

Often we spend our hard earned money on

Knives that are made in other country's

Even though these knives may equal the value you

Expect , what is the greater good it delivers?

I struggle with American vs china made all the time.

Many buyers want a china price , many buyers are
