    Depends on who's looking for me.....and why.
    I'm kind of a big KA-BAR fixed blade fan. The knife on the right in the 2nd picture is the one that my step-son made for me while working @ MAD DOG Knives. Those in the boxes are still NIB and consist of about 4-5 different models.

    Got a couple of NIB vintage early to mid 70's Gerber MKII's as well. :happy:

    I love knives, especially steak knives.

    I have tried a bunch of different kinds of knives for my work, and found that the best thing is something I never thought I would stoop to - one of those folding utility knives.

    [​IMG]


    Of course I had to modify it a bit, but it flips open with the flick of a wrist, holds an extra blade (I can stuff two in there), and closes one-handed as well. That's important for my work.
    I've never found a fixed blade/sheath combo that worked well, and of course things get dull after a bit of use. I can sharpen blades to shaving sharpness, but only at my shop.


    Still, my son is into making knives. He's got some impressive things so far. Will try and get pics.

    That's an out the front one. push the button forward and it comes out, pull the button back and blade retracts.
