Wow! That looks sweet.
I like the leaf blade design, nice knife!
Nice review of the best folders by Tac.
Today`s ride-along is what I consider to be a "gentleman`s knife"....the Buck-Mayo TNT is extremely pocket-friendly....thin, lightweight, and sharp as a mofo....
Thanks for posting that. I'm glad to see that he is a fan of Spyderco. I have 3 different models and love them all.
I have looked at Spyderco's ,they are great knives.
It's all personal feel and I just really relate to the Sogs.
Thin pocket friendly is a good thing!
That's a great looking knife!
That Sog Amigo is a sweet looking knife. I did a search and didn't find that model.
"Buck Mayo on the keyboards, Buck Mayo" (sorry)
Pulled this old classic Buck Folding Hunter out of a drawer today. Had some green on the brass so I polished it up and honed it. Feels good in the hand.
just put this on my wishlist
The Model 110 set the knife world on fire 50-some years ago....I wish I had a penny for every one that was sold !
(The finger-groove option is nice also !)
Now THAT is a diabolically clever little gizmo !
Today, I`ve been rolling with the Benchmade 755 MPR (Mini Pocket Rocket). Overbuilt from titanium, G10, and Sleipner M390 steel, it`s quite a stout little tool.
Today, another Benchmade (Contego) is in the pocket. Carries very nicely for a fairly large knife, the M4 tool steel blade is extremely sharp.
I bought one of these about 6 months ago. Online seller had them for $16 shipped (from China) so I bit the bullet for science. What I got surprised me.
Great fit & finish, all stainless, G10 scales, shave sharp, holds edge, and solidly made. Opens with a wicked snap and zero play when it is. I can lose it and not feel bad -
Very nice for the money !
No reason to carry a knife down here, but if there was a need and it was legal to do so I would have to choose some variation of a Karambit.
Today`s ridealong is the Tom Lewis fixed-blade, and my ever-present Benchmade Barrage. Last week, while touching up the edge on the Barrage, I decided to reprofile it to a Moran (convex) edge, using a rubber sanding block with a few different grades of wet-or-dry sandpaper. Turned out real nice, the finest grit I had was 400 grit, so I didn`t get that hair-shaving sharp edge. Almost, but not quite.
But, that being said, I don`t shave with this knife, it`s a working knife. I didn`t put any secondary micro-bevel on it, just left it in the "appleseed edge" state. And, in it`s present form, it`s a better working edge than the more-refined version I would normally put on it. Tested it by making about 75 or 80 cuts on some half-inch manila (hemp) rope, followed by some whittling on a piece of well-seasoned cherry branch. It performed admirably in both tasks, without any apparent degredation in edge quality.
Very nice Max! That fixed blade is a work of art.
And about that Karambit, yikes! That’s frightening! I like it.
Sharpening it must be a bit of a challenge.
