Knives 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
Recently developed an eye for knives. As if the bike wasn't expensive enough. Just picked up a Kershaw Blackout yesterday. It's a lightweight assisted blade and looks and feels real nice. Was wondering what knives you all carry or collect.

nice blade. if you want a good blade its gunna cost you. i have a eye for guns lately next year i want to buy either a judge,1911, or a .44 mag. more than likely it will be the judge, you can shoot colt .45's or a 410 shotgun shells

Kershaw Blackout, Gerber, and a Maple Swift. I want a Benchmark, but I could buy a new seat for what those cost.

Still a Buck Lockback fan. Lot to be said about the ceramic blades though.

That's a nice knife, and it's made in the USA.

I carry a Spyderco full serated blade that I have had for about 15 years and love it.

Re:Knives 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
I carry an old Uncle Henry Lockback by Schrade that's similar to the Buck 110 Folding Hunter. I've had it for almost 20 years. No fancy belt clip, no big holster on the belt. But it 'prints' nicely in the front pocket of my jeans and makes the perfect statement. To anyone who is used to the lightweight folders popular now, the first thing they say is, "Dang, that's heavy!". It is a solid chunk of knife. Years ago some Ranger friends who carried the Buck folders showed me how to file down the sharp edges of the bolsters, and file fingergrooves into the rosewood handle slabs to make it even better. With practice, you can flip it open as quickly as a switchblade. Held closed in the hand, it adds heft to your punch. I see it advertised online for about $25.00. That makes it a deal in my book.

EDIT: I just checked, and sadly Schrade knives which were made in the USA are now made in China. (since 2004). I can't speak for the quality of the product now. My BearPaw is one of the older US-made ones. Hopefully the Chinese make it with the same attention to detail....
