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
Maybe. I’m not sure. I know he’s said he won’t make anymore. You might be able to find one going on the bladeforums for sale at some point. If it does show up it’ll prolly go fast. I’ve checked the popular high end custom
Well, this is one of those issues where there is no right answer. A good blade steel for one application might not be good for another application. Blade steels have all kinds if different properties like hardness, toughness, and wear resistance. The only way
Oh yeah and I heard knife laws in NY were really strict. Is that just the city or state.
The Caly3.5, while having a similar blade length and handle length to the Southard, feels HALF as thin and much lighter. As such you don’t even notice it clipped to your pocket. With the Southard I’m always aware. The Caly3.5 is a much less
I purchased it yesterday so I haven’t had much of a chance to use it. I did some rough cuts for vegetable steaming and was just blown away by how easy I went through carrots. I have a Hiro Shiki limited edition Santoku which
Well worth the money. I got one it carrys well. Ailttle thick but if can carry the spartan this will be cake.
Oh, it definitely seems like it’s got good handling, I was just commenting on how a more simple design for the handle could suit it as well. It’s still a great carving, and it looks absolutely beautiful nonetheless. I’ve seen some of your previous
These are fantastic knives that offer almost unheard of bang for the buck. You get S35VN, full titanium frame lock, carbon fiber scale, tritium, and it’s under $300. I know I sound like an infomercial, but I was blown away when I got mine.
yeah i dont know much about knives, especially as a means of defense; but that thing looks like it could cause some devastation. Terrifying really. EDC = everyday carry. just incase someone else doesnt know edit: Also, is there any benefit for there not
Unfortunately, not so much. From the description: “Please keep in mind that carbon fiber does not offer a super sharp blade on the knife, it’s not really meant for cutting, but rather for self-defense/stabbing or as an art/decorative knife. The blade does not hold
Wharncliffe blades are extremely good for utility purposes (Think handyman type tasks) and they’re great for cutting due to the extremely thin pointed tips. They also are super easy to sharpen from what I’ve been told which is a plus. Oh, wharncliffe blades are
Well I think it looks cool….but considering this I the first one I’ve purchased its been really hard to learn anything on. I’ve seen people flip it well, but I’m not one of them.
It’s much heavier than it looks, and appears to have been used frequently. There are other photos and a little more information here. http://collections.centerofthewest.org/treasures/view/other_knife_johnston_john_livereating_wade_butcher_sheffield_englan
We call this our Practical/Tactical Damascus. Outer laminates of pure nickel sheet and S25C with a Hitachi white steel core, forged and quenched in pine charcoal and water. The S25C is for strength, nickel for ductility, ease of sharpening and rust resistance, and water-quenched
OK, I’ll bite. What the hell is that thing with the antlers sticking out of it in the upper left of the collection? Doesn’t look like any skull I’ve ever seen… Is it something you put together? I’m guessing it’s a pelvis of some
To a degree, you’re right. But I’d have to forge down the stock I start with or buy new stock of proper size, both of which take time and energy. To keep from nickel and dimeing every customer, my going rate is fifteen dollars
