    Everybody should own at least one Victorinox SAK, they are a useful work of art ! Lost count of how many I`ve given to worthy recipients as birthday or Christmas presents !

    I CANNOT have my model 1860 civil war saber anywhere outside of my home.

    It does stay in an accessible place at home. ;-)"

    It is quite a great piece of craftsmanship.

    Okay back to knifes, that Victorinox is nice!

    Top 10 assisted openers video:

    Kershaw included.

    Personally I like SOG but just like audio, we're all different.

    True and agree but a good name is
    "A good name".

    My step daddy the trapper man used this type of Barlow for skinning muskrats, mink, raccoon and various such as dressing out poultry and small game.
    Kept it so sharp you probably could shave with it!
    The two blades had different uses, cutting, skinning and scraping.

    It feels great in the hand, a bit bulky in the pocket and does not open easily but he could skin and dress out his catch and various small game like you have never seen.

    I have this one which is similar to his but it's not something that I would carry.

    It's different things for different people for sure!

    I was a trapper boy and the photo in my avatar is a bridge over one of many ditches that we used to trap and I always had a good pocketknife while growing up.

    Original Barlow, not Barlow style.

    The SOG Cash card is my favorite for many reasons and I'll betcha' I can dress out a chicken very quickly with
    it! ;-)"

    Kickin` it Old School today, with this Carl Schleiper "Eye Brand", from Solingen, Germany (circa 1970). Carbon steel, takes (and holds) a VERY sharp edge, it`s a faithful workhorse of a folder....

    From today`s "Sharp & Pointy" category....a Benchmade Contego. M4 steel is incredibly sharp....

    Is that the 810?

    I have not touched one of those yet but that looks like one great piece!

    Great knife, but for some reason the size makes it difficult for me to manipulate the axis lock well. I prefer the Rift personally.

    Yes, it`s the 810. Quite deceptive for a knife of this size (i.e., LARGE)....slim and relatively lightweight, it`s easy to carry.

    The two I most often carry currently. The Buck for pocket. The CRKT has a clip for my belt.

    Changing it up a little today, added this nice little Tom Lewis fixed blade to the mix. Don`t let the size fool you, it`s a tough little sucker....
    (My ever-present Benchmade 580 barrage looks quite large by comparison)

    Man, it just doesn't get any better than this. Outstanding designs, top quality materials, high quality craftsmanship, beautiful art, and useful tools all wrapped up in one pocket size item. How can a guy, or a girl, not love it!

    Yep....knives are very likely among man`s first tools (going way back to pieces of chipped obsidian, which is razor sharp), we are still fascinated by them !

    Not exactly an "every day carry" knife unless maybe you live in the wilderness, but I will be carrying it for the next day or two.

    Thank you, Sir !
    It`s size makes it a very useful tool (without scaring the sheeple to death :) ) , while being nice to just look at and fondle as well..... "functional work of art" is what I call knives like that.

    Exactly how I would describe it. Just like a custom bicycle frame: a combination of art and engineering.
