David Gallup replied to Jay's discussion Your first knife
"I can't remember my first knife, I know I lost a lot of knives as a kid.  I do remember two of my Dads knives.  He had a large Swiss Army knife that he kept on a lanyard so he wouldn't lose it.  I remember my Grandmother…"
David Gallup replied to Tony Flannery's discussion Knife Makers Mark Help!
"The only folding bowies I've seen were German made but probably could be from other European countries, particularly if it's a custom.  The mark doesn't mean anything to me.  Might be a good submission to Bernard…"

David Gallup replied to Mike West's discussion Buck 110 automatic in the group BUCK KNIVES GROUP
"Well, that worked out well.  Got a 110 auto at the show today.  One of the easiest releasing autos I have.  Very solid lockup as well.  Gave the brass a good polish and gave everything a nice coat of Renaissance wax.  Came…"

"Got mine today too, thanks for the fast shipping.  It's a good looking knife.  I always like getting another whittler pattern.  Overall I found it to be well made and pretty clean.  I always take a piece of flannel and…"

David Gallup replied to johnny twoshoes's discussion Favorite 300. in the group BUCK KNIVES GROUP
"I'll have to keep an eye out for a 315 YACHTSMAN.  I have a small collection of knives with locking marlin spikes.  They are really handy if you are around ropes and boats.  I spend 3 weeks every summer on a small island, in and…"

"What a great bunch of Tuna Valley knives and superb photography.  Carl - do you use natural lighting or are you walking around with a back pack full of photo gear?  I wish I had learned about Tuna Valley earlier, just bought my first ones…"

David Gallup joined Ryan Daniels's group

Tuna Valley Cutlery Company hosted by Courtney Daniels

     The Daniels family has been trading knives since the 1940's. Our founder , Norman Daniels, taught his grandson Ken Daniels about his first knives not on the internet or knife shows as we know today but at old fashion traders markets and gun swaps. The most famous was Washington Court House near Dayton, OH where at the time this was 6 football field sizes big. Ken Daniels would later teach his son ,Ryan Daniels, the trade.     I remember growing up at the National Knife Collectors Shows…See More

"Oooo that stag is gorgeous. I own one myself with black buffalo horn - small "blowout" of horn at one of the pins, but bought it discounted and what a pretty piece.  Will start carrying that one soon!"

Carl Bradshaw replied to David Gallup's discussion Tuna Valley Humped back whittler in the group Queen Cutlery & Friends
"Ryan told me these were some of the very last knives made at Queen before the doors closed. I'm not sure, but he may have even had the parts assembled after the doors had closed."

David Gallup replied to dead_left_knife_guy's discussion Knife Magazines / Knives Illustrated
"Knife Magazine is the only one I subscribe too now.  I really like the historical articles.  I used to subscribe to the others but I find I have very little interest in tactical knives other than a few historical ones like the Case V42 I…"
