The Lethal Edge

I know we have a few knife fans here, so let's see those knives.

I quickly took these this evening with a new lens, so they are not as good as they should be, but they give you the idea.

Nice knives! I usually have trouble getting the light right.

Here's one you do not see every day -- hand-forged crucible steel (Wootz) hunter:

Not a very good picture of this one -- hand-forged San Mai blade:

I have a few more but no pics, including a Cold Steel Trailmaster and Kukri.

BTW Charles the top three pics are Chris Reeve knives, a South African now living in the US. He makes some of the nicest production knives around I think.

I guess I should have recognized his mark! Is that first one one of his one-piece hollow-handled knives?

I do not think he sells many. He was moving and put this one on eBay for expense money when I found it. He posts on a number of the knife boards and specializes in making his own steel.

Here are some better pictures of the second knife from the maker's web site -- it is the first one on the page:

I also have this one he did, the first one on this page, just for grins:

http://www.aescustomknives.com/docs/gallery6.htm

I have a couple of Jay Fisher's knives too, one I bought for me and one for my wife (you should be able to tell which is which):

Yes, it is a Shadow IV with 5.5" blade, real solid feeling knife. The second one is a Green Beret (Yarborough) with 7" blade, which is heavy and a formidable tool, and the third is a large Sebenza with Damascus blade.

And in all the knife talk, I forgot to say -- very nice camera work!

I carry a small Boker ceramic most of the time. The light weight is great in dress pants. I also have a larger one I got for field use because it is supposed to hold an edge so long. I am always a bit leery because the blades are pretty brittle -- my first one broke in half. And I have not seen as much benefit from the ceramic edge-holding as I expected.

Hmmm, that's a hard one ;)

They say "real men" can wear pink, so maybe "real men" can carry purple knives too ;)
