    Looks like it was made by Bear and Son Cutlery. This version is walnut and nickled with a belt clip.

    So many sweet knives -- not enough pockets. What's a guy to do?

    Just one reason why about 95% of the time, I wear these Blackhawk Warrior Wear tactical pants....they have 11 pockets (!), which gives plenty of carry options.

    As Steve Martin once said, "Let`s get SMALL !"
    Been carrying and using this nice little Buck for close to 40 years. When new, it once slipped out of my pocket, but I was able to find it, and immediately made a leather rough-out case for it, kept it secure in the pocket all these years....

    Is that a Colt? I used to have one of those years back. Great little knife.

    Actually, it`s a Knight (Model 505), the smallest of the 500 series. Incredibly solid and capable for it`s size....

    Continuing with the "small theme", another Buck offering from the early `90s....

    I call that Voyager "a folding chain saw", I once cut a 7-pound roast beef in half with it, was shocked at how effective it is against meat (!) Decided at that point to carry it only for defensive purposes (with a 5 1/2" blade, it would be quite devastating), so it never saw work duty....I have many other knives that would work well in that capacity.
    The small Buck with the half-serrated blade is extremely useful, makes short work of nylon rope, etc., and it doesn`t alarm the sheeple.... :)

    I don't carry this one much, but looks cool.
    Anodized bronze titanium, Chris reeve sebenza 25.

    [​IMG]

    MUCH rather prefer the chris reeve sebenza 21 with wood inlays.

    [​IMG]

    In my opinion the finest knives made.

    Very few parts, easily (recommended by maker chris reeve) dissambled, highest tolerances in the knife market (exceeds aerospace tolerance), and great customer service, made in idaho.
    They open and close like a bank vault, blade will never wiggle (thanks to the extreme tolerance).

    Today, another Benchmade, the Model 755 ("Mini Pocket Rocket"), overbuilt from titanium and Bohler M390 steel, it`s a tough customer....

    I'll never carry a Chinese-made Schrade; I know Stewart Taylor of Taylor Brands too well.

    I've had this Schrade Tradesman TM7 mini lock back, made at the old Imperial plant in Ireland pre-bankruptcy, on my keychain for over a decade, and it is still going strong with no repairs and no issues. Even the keychain bail. The handle ain't purty, but it continues to get the job done.

    That seems funny -- and all too true.

    Strange days, indeed. I prefer the times when they automatically gave you a little 4-pack of free cigarettes as you boarded the plane (!). Once, when I was in Florida, (pre-1970s) I bought a nice little Barretta .22 auto pistol in a Montgomery Wards Department store, just slipped it into my pocket, and carried it home like that on the plane....no muss, no fuss :)

    Here's another of my regulars. It's a Spyderco from the 2" and under airline carry days ironically named the "Co-pilot".
