iKC exclusive reviews would be cool. We hope to be writing more stuff likr "How To Lose Your Knife In A Bar" in the next few months. It is easy to get caught up in knife reviews and forget about ridiculous commentary on knife culture.
We will definitely be linking to threads here at iKC now that we have found it. There is a lot of great info tucked away here.
Thanks Lars, I see you're a collector of bayonets. I know nothing about bayonets, but have one that has been passed down to me. It's supposedly a Japanese bayonet from WWII (but you know how family war stories can be). I'll send you a pic sometime and maybe you can tell me a little about it.
Got a few stories and it would be good to get together soon. This week and next are shot, family in town and then off to CA for a wedding. Maybe the week of the 23rd. I'll pack up a few intriguing items!
Thanks for reaching out, yes we are very near each other, I actually work in Richardson! Al Mar was a good friend and so was the gentleman he sold hos company to as well. Had some unique knives by Al, including one he personally scrimshawed with a rat! Love older Randalls, sadly sold about a dozen of t hem a few years back...like old Gerbers too. I go way back with Lynn Thompson from CS knives, probably 35 years or more. We should try and get together in the next few weeks. Cheers, KML
I really appreciate your help I bet your dead on I knew it wasn’t super old but I could tell it was well made the handle is antler for sure but it has no markings which seems odd for something made this well idk I gotta figure this picture thing out I have an old military (I think) knife I love to show you thank you again for the info
Thanks! I live outside Houston, so we are sorta neighbors. I have become very interested in the history of the knives I have come across. I really appreciate that people that are much more knowledge about knives are willing to share on these forums.
Lars, Siema! Dziekuje! (That's the limit of my Polish -- despite having a serious girlfriend about 20+ years ago who emigrated from Warsaw.) I hope you're doing well also, and have to say I'm really glad you're here -- you've got great taste in blades!
Ik heb mezelf op deze website omdat ik nieuwsgierig ben of er ook DAK messen verhandeld worden. Ik heb zelf namelijk nog een paar jaartallen van dit soort messen liggen en was benieuwd voor welke prijzen deze messen verkocht worden.
Thanks for the warm welcome, I do the blade restoration mainly due my interest in the individual history of the piece and to preserve its relevance to the previous and current owners. It also is great therapy for my ptsd .
I have a Facebook page called Craig’s Knife Life if you are on that platform. I have a lot of before and after pictures. To me no knife is to far gone, they all have some value to someone.
