The steel is 1095 and tempered properly, the tang reaches about 2/3rds into the handle, any further and I risk coming through the wood since the handle tapers. As for commissioned work I’m currently 6 projects deep and probably won’t be free again until
Top 1000 Knife Pictures
Great question! Certainly not in the typical sense of the word. But like any sharp edged tool, one can always find a use for it. If I’m not mistaken one of the original (practical) uses for the style was agricultural before weaponization. A modern
[Here’s my 18″ HI Ang Khola](http://i.imgur.com/ZBSYVaU.jpg) It isn’t the Chiruwa version. I think the major diff is no pins… and the one I have is slightly larger, specially in length. oh, and I obviously opted for the buffalo horn rather than wood. I’ve used
[Here’s](http://www.wired.com/design/2013/10/you-can-kill-a-man-100-ways-with-this-crazy-swiss-army-knife/) an article that briefly talks about this beast.
From CRK, “Continuing the proud tradition of Chris Reeve Knives honoring elite military, the Reeve/Harsey collaboration – the Pacific – is the civilian version of a knife (First Group Knife) created to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of 1st Special Forces Group. Based in Ft.
Yeah, its just a small collection of some of my current my obsidian knifes. I finished another piece a few weeks ago that was [carved from rosewood](http://imgur.com/a/19hGp) that is more traditional knife wise, its a double edged dagger but I already posted it in
You do realize that I own the knife in the picture right? The titanium lockface is actually bolstered by a stainless steel lock interface so there is steel on steel contact instead of titanium on steel. Thus giving the knife a stronger lockup without
The scenes in the forges are some of my favorite mini-moments of the show. Also, the [damascus]( http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/26300000/Jon-sword-Longclaw-jon-snow-26321626-1365-2048.jpg) on Snow’s sword is a really nice touch. I always look for it when he is onscreen.
This is a no-setup, available light photo, actually. I took this photo on my kitchen counter. The yellow comes from the wall behind the counter, and the reflection comes from the polished surface of the granite countertop (which is actually a mottled dark green
Good question! You *could* call it a knife, but it is obviously more in the realm of machete/short sword. On their website they refer to it as a “camp, jungle and survival blade”. For further clarity, as far as the sub is concerned: >
Satin finished double-edged blade with an aluminum cats tongue handle. Early 70’s era production in fantastic condition.

I could only track down a couple. [One](http://i.imgur.com/N0JHWnl.jpg) and [two](http://i.imgur.com/vniDLq1.jpg). There are more out there in the wild, but these are pretty rare for me to make as they are so time consuming.
Well, you can get [replacements](http://www.swissarmy.com/ca/app/product/Swiss-Army-Knives/Category/Replacement-Parts/Small-Toothpick-6-Pack/38413) if you’d like. EDIT: But you’d have to go to a store, I’d imagine most knife stores would have them (but I may be wrong).
I would probably say the same thing if I didn’t have smaller than average hands, which was a factor in picking the knife out to begin with ha. My buddy had an M21 and he said the same thing though. Right now I’m looking
Hey, it’s one of the top posts on a smaller, but active subreddit. It also looks weird; that’s why I checked the comments, to find out what the purpose of the shape is. I think there will be more visitors here. Also, we can
It’s a weird lanyard thing that screws into the bottom of the knife: http://i.imgur.com/y8dYWPa.jpg It should be noted that the pictured knife isn’t mine. I did get the opportunity to play with one at a recent knife show, though, and they’re beautiful.
I tried out the clip. It’s not low in the pocket, but only about .5″ (12.5mm) of the knife sticks out. It’s not too bad. The clip is tight, which I noticed getting it out of the pocket. This was probably compounded by the
I would say it’s a mix of a hard polymer and a rubber. It is not squishy and holds its shape, but it still has a bit of that rubber stickiness. It’s pretty good for a dagger designed for combat. I still prefer a
Sure! It has a white steel core. The wrought iron on the outside is softer and easier to sharpen. This makes it easy to maintain great geometry on the cutting edge. The handle is red micarta and carbon fiber. The knife is 191mm long
Does it have a locking blade? Also how many of those tools do you use? I only ask because I see a lot of people with Swiss Army knives who literally don’t use the tools and just have them for the novelty, and I
I’m pretty sure most Balisong-related injuries are sliced fingers sustained while showing off for friends. Still, they’re a lot of fun, especially once you understand all the basic movements and start improvising and chaining them together. I found YouTube pretty helpful when I was
Absolutely love my USMC KA-BAR, a knife in my opinion doesn’t get much simpler and much more reliable. I’m curious though, what’s the small silver indent on the pommel? Visible at the very end of the handle. Mine came with that and I thought
The Climber is a great choice. For being so common, you’d think I’d have one in my collection but I don’t yet. What was your old SAK? And how are you liking the nylon scales as compared to the cellidor?
Initial thoughts are: “It looks like a dildo with a poorly thought out and unsafe handle.” “Tetanus. I better get my shot updated just in case.” Still though, it’s pretty interesting to say the least. I like the organic and fluid look of the
