OT: Any other knife nuts out there ?

Do you routinely have some type of knife or multi-tool among your EDC gear ? If so, let`s see `em....

I have several things in my EDC rotation, here`s today`s choice:

One of my oldest knives (from 1970)....a carbon-steel Sodbuster-style from Carl Schlieper of Solingen, Germany

I carry a winchester pocket knife since its small and doesnt weigh me down.





My favorite knife is my gerber applegate tactical assisted opening knife. Almost like a switchblade but 100% legal everywhere.

Nice stuff !

The top one is commonly referred to as a "push dagger"....

Number two is a "Nessmuk" pattern, popularized by a mid-1800s outdoorsman and bushcrafter named George Washington Sears, who wrote articles under the pen name "Nessmuk".

Number 3 is a typical Marine issue Ka-Bar....one of the most popular military knives ever....

Bob you apparently really know your knives. I've got a couple that I'll have to dig up and post pictures, see what you think. Meanwhile I carry a little Kershaw pocket knife, nothing too interesting. I love the 'assisted open' ones, but I have found that with my two-year-old, it's better not to have something that's so easy to open.

Daily use (as I said, pretty boring):



or:



I've just been really impressed with the quality and durability of the Kershaws, I've had a lot of different daily-use pocketknives, and these are my favorite. No affiliation with the company I promise!

Nice! Is it a real blade? I never saw a knife sold at a gas station here in California.

Hey Bob, what do you think of the Karambit?

Yep its the real deal. The only thing Ive ever cut with it was a steak Kind of a joke one night when we were eating and the "clean" knives were butter knives. I grabbed it off the display stand and tore into the steak. Cut great.

Thats what suprised me about it and the swords I bought there. All steel and decent steel (not flimsy but not high grade of course) and all razor sharp. My katana's I bought there have an amazing edge on them.

Figured they would all be completely dull and blunted for show but all of them are "useable"

I also like Kershaw`s knives, they offer a great product for reasonable money....got a few myself, including these 2 Tyrades (the full-Titanium one has carbon-fiber inserts for better grippage, the orange one has G10 handles, it`s a limited-edition run, only 1500 made. Both have compound blades with D2 tool steel on the cutting edge, and 154CM for the spine), which are outstanding knives.

Kershaw also has an upper-echelon company (much like Toyota`s Lexus Division) called Zero Tolerance, producing some heavy-duty blades with great build quality. I have a few of them as well.....
The photo with the three knives has a Zero Tolerance ZT-0350 on top, a Cold Steel Talwar (5-inch blade !) in the middle, and a Zero Tolerance ZT-0561 on the bottom.

There seems to be a certain amount of obsession over the karambit these days. I don`t share that idea, to me the `bit is way too specialized a weapon, best left to the practitoners of Filipino techniques like Escrima and Kali. The problem I see is that withdrawl and presentation requires a shift in grip, which in a true defensive situation wastes critical time, and can lead to fumbling the knife unless the user has many years of training.

I`m a fan of the Japanese form "Iaido", which entails drawing the blade and cutting your opponent in one quick, sweeping motion. No hesitation, just devastating results. A straight blade works best here....

I always wanted one of these AND to learn to use it correctly. The power you can deliver with one of these is legendary.

Nice pistol. My dad has a black .45 with a wooden grip. He keeps it in a safe. Very nice pistol.. and loud too.

But this isn't a gun thread...

Slay any dragons with that dagger yet?

Nope just a nice steak one time

I started to shoot pics of the katana's Ive got but couldnt figure out how to get them in frame with the other stuff.

Those Ive actually used to kill a few snakes. Like a hot knife thru butter.

Pretty interesting. I always liked the look of it, which is why I asked. Saw a few for under $30 on Amazon.

Here's my EDC, decent blade and lightweight. Got a few more at the house that aren't so practical to carry. Had a Kershaw that I love the blade on, but the clip on it broke

That's cool about the ZT division, I didn't know about that! My usual knife is the Leek. It's been discontinued but I bought a couple on ebay, I like it that much. I had a bigger one that I think was the Chive, but it's pretty heavy - which can be good - but a little much for my current desk job. That one had a broken tip that made it just the right shape to use as a philips head screwdriver, and the blade could take the abuse which was amazing.
