Knife Pics

Recommended Posts

I have a small knife which I got for part of my kit list when doing the duke of edenbuigh award bronze, It's smaller than 3", it just folds out, and "locks", much like the one posted above. I don't see how anyone can use a non-locking knife to carve or cutt, it would just be unsafe. I only use it for camping or sometimes fishing (for cutting line/plastic packaging, or making tent pegs). I won't post a pictures because he said no locking knifes, though my small pocket knife is perfectly legal, and functions much like every other flip out pocket knife in shops everwere.

I am jealous... :D

 

Next time i buy knives it will be a Buck Strider 888 and a 889...

Excellent little folders, the 889s. I love mine to bits.

Some of the ones I had handy, and would fit in one picture :)

The SWAT folder is worth its weight in gold. I bought it in 1997 and has never failed to keep its edge, it's been with me since then. The sleek teflon finish wore off long ago, but I just can't see buying a new one since nothing's "wrong" with it.

 

I've got a half-dozen or so more folding knives, M7 and AK47 bayonets, perhaps I'll get them all collected up next time I'm at my storage garage and take a photo.

Y'know I never did quite get the whole appeal of knives; but then I'm probably still bluffing that from when I had to declaim against their merits after being arrested for `possesion of an offensive weapon` (I was entirely innocent I assure you, I blame quite completely the college I was attending at the time) a few years ago.

 

Swords however are still the way forwards in terms of bladed tools; yet I'm still clearly subscribed to this thread.

So tell me; how much do these knives cost then, anyone? I'll spend a few hundred £££ on a sword (yes, I do have some new - proper carbon steel - ones since the `crappy wall hanger heaven` :rolleyes: pics) but how much would you guys spend on a 3-5" folder?

 

Personally, for even the very nicest one, I wouldn't give over £70. I mean its totally impractical after that point, isn't it? You'll be able to find a more durable knife for a better price, for a knife of that size.

 

Wouldn't you?

Tell that to Strider :D

 

Still knockin' out $400+ SmF folders. 4" blade, liner lock. S30V steel, titanium on the handle. Totally bombproof, and I mean totally. The stock steel the blade is made from is VERY thick, which makes them heavy but incredible durable.

 

You know you want one, you know you can't resist the Strider sexiness... ;)

those are just my tactical knives (my carry ones...I have many more). There are close to 3000 knives in the basement.

And if people are familiar with Moran, Osborne, Loveless and some of those guys, I have several of their pieces in the gun room.

Strider Hybrid HideAway Knife

 

One of a batch of 50 or so, and part of the only batch this year. Batches tend to be roughly a year apart. It really is a work of art, too. The amount of work put into it, and the end result, is truly astounding. The first knife I've ever owned that could be described as 'beautiful', because it really is.

 

Also ordered a Ripp-Cord deployment option, a pair of SheathSticks, and of course a lovely silver bag to hold it all ;)

 

The SheathSticks are amazing - they let you put it almost anywhere. There's a video demo HERE... :D

Leon's knife from Resident Evil 4 rendered in ABS by Matt Bond =D

 

 

Very nice, wonder if i can get one cast in metal, probably not. What the weight on it like, and most importantly what did he charge for it?

 

 

And now onto my Knives, only 2 atm but once Guns get banned i'll probably move onto buying more.

 

Top is an M3 (i think I'm not to hot on knives)

 

Bottom is my Grandfather's Gurkha from WW2, Bit rusty need to clean it up but not really sure what to use, is DW 40 ok on Knives? Bit of help be good, taa very much

Strider Talon

 

Finishes off my HAK collection (for now!). Absolutely beautiful, even more so than the Hybrid.

The inline HAK design is now my favourite, I think.

the knife it'self weighs allmost nothing, if I had to compaire it to anything, kind of like a TM M9 slide w/o any of the bits inside it. He only charged like..80. It's baised off the Merc Worx series of knives, so if you like it, I reccomend going and checking them out =]
