Knife nuttt Pic Thread

Postby army of nobunaga on Mon Apr 12, 2010 9:36 pm

Was reading another thread. Looks like there are a few other people that are like me.. WOOHOOO

I have collected knives and swords and the odd and end weapon from around the globe. Will take pics and share them for the knife people.

Please do the same!


couple things about my knives.

I use them. Like a lot.

I have a few old collectibles I keep on the wall that I dont use. But for the most part I hike and camp and rockclimb like a fiend. When I am at a knife show, I will not buy a knife unless It can have a purpose in my life. Thus these knives will have a lot of wear. I polish the hell out of a few, but you will still see some ugly signs.

The other thing is, some of these knives (the knife astute will notice) have only one ugly purpose. So don't judge me. I went through a total of 4 months intense close weapon training in my military days so I do believe in them for the ole stab and run when/if someone attacks me.




Ill start with ROS arms.
I am kind of a steel guy.

South Ural steel is the best in my opinion. Sorry germany and japan steel dudes.

Ros, Hand made. Heat treated to get a rockwell hardness of near 60... Almnost like a ceremic blade! The polish like a mofo too and hold an edgee...umm yeah!

Image
This is the Companion 2.. Smallish knife. It has a birtch bark ringed handle, gets stickier as you sweat. I strap it onto my climbing harness.





Image
Ros Arm Wolfhound
13 inches, nicely curved for functionality.


-----

Btw guys, these knives are still undervalued. For a handmade knife of this quality I can give you the name of one of like 40 dealers in the US and you can get one for under 100 bucks.

This is made in the same region as russia. Great knives as well. Called Kizlyar.

I think they are half handmade. Half machine. So not technically a handmade knife. They have a good reputation in russia and europe as a strong knife



Image
This is the Biker 1
Bone handle... yes, russian boar bone. And surprisingly Ideal. Black blade. I use it is an all around utility knife.

This is a folding knife btw. about 5 1/2 inch blade. Nice heavy knife.

Lets go Damascus now...

a few things
1) Im not sure If I believe the hype and that the price is worth it.
2) They are pretty
3) I have used the hell out of each of these- mainly household carpentry car work and some rope splice/design projects... the puma knife seems to rust easy but tough, the little boker is a warrior so far.


Image
The Boker Magnum. The screw on the side came loose, they replaced it with a new knife no questions within 3 weeks.. Im a Boker fan now. Boker USA looks like a solid company.

That is a little rust you see. The thing is, I KNOW how to take care of knives. The rust on this Puma tec is a problem though. I don't know a lot about puma tec, It is probably one of the many chinese damascus companies. Im ok with that. It seems tough. It keeps an edge. Sometimes Chinese sweatshop machine line stuff has quality at a good price though. I got this for 45$ on sell and I would recommend it.
I dont like synthetic handles, this is one. And its ok actually. It sure as hell doesnt slip. I dont love it though.




Ok so, Im not sold on damascus, Ive got a hunch its just a friggin method of selling knives at a higher price. I lived in asia for a while and there the knife ppl will not touch the stuff. So I dunno.

Damascus steel is pretty. End of story.

I'm into steel that holds the best edge. Chinese steel is shit. I won't even sharpen a knife of Chinese steel unless someone provides their own stone to sharpen it on - i've fucked up a couple good diamond stones on that pissant Chinese shit.

Im still not sold on it man... I actually try to abuse the Dam. knivesI have to see what they do. The boker one cost a good penny... the little puma tec on was cheap. So far though, neither have knicked, and I like to cut all sorts of stuff with a knife. I used the puma as a chisel with a hammer behind it not long ago and really banged the hell out of it for 45 mins, and it really didnt move the point like I thought it would.

I have a lot of others, if this thread takes off Ill post those pics.. I have a goood ole american lakota that a good genius buddy that worked for me in iowa made for me froma blank and it might be the toughest.

If you want to make your own blade, O-2 is the grade of tool steel that you want. You'll have to go to a foundry to have it tempered once you fashion the blade but it's worth the trouble. It's not cheap though. A blank for a bowie sized blade will run you about 200 dollars. Worth every penny.

I've got my good old benchmade. Didn't do any modifications, so I'll just post a generic picture of it.

I opted for the regular metal blade. Nice little compact utility knife.

Thanks ya Great White Hoser :D

I have redirected my post - Do we have any kinfe fans / collectors out there? My favorite knifes ever made were the limited production Westmark 701, 702 and 703 series made by Western back in the 70's (I think they made another run of them after Coleman bought them out too....). Sweetest handling knife ever made with the nicest design and gnarliest tool steel........

Image

Second fave knife is the Buck 124....no longer make them but very cool. Got one as a gift from my brother when I was 12....been my carry knife for hunting ever since

Nice blade there. The drop point Bowie is the best blade design in the world - something Americans can be proud of. I made one with a rosewood and ivory handle which a number of people asked to buy from me. I should've sold it, as i lost in when the house burned down. Also lost a first edition benchmade sidewinder in the same fire.

All i have now are a Benchmade Bali Song (can't get one now for less than $250), a Puma switchblade and a modified K-Bar. I still have an 0-2 blank for a Bowie blade though. I pulled it out of the ashes of my house and any temper will be gone, but i'll have to have it tempered anyway when i make the blade.

Sorry for the lack of pics, but don't know how to do pics and get them on the PC.

I was actually thinking about this the other day. I need a knife. i'd like to take it backpacking,camping,hiking. So I want it to be small and light. But still big enough to chop down a tree or ward off a cougar. It would be useful if it could start fires, and cut rope, and clean fish/game....oh, and if it's got built in gps and a little lady that offers blowies i'll take 100. Otherwise I just want the 1.

Do you guys have any recommendations on a good all around knife for me?

I highly recommend for all around hard outdoor/camping work a Cold Steel kukri. One hell of a work knife. Some of the best steel in the world.
Image

Another knife that is rock solid and strong is actually a bayonet. You can't go wrong having a good used German WWII K98 bayonet. Good ole German steel. :D

My favorite pocket/utility pocket knife is a Winchester lock blade with pocket clip and partially serrated blade. It rocks!

Your best bet is a standard K-Bar. You can probably find one for $75 or so - still the best all around knife by far for the price. I bought my son one for his 12th birthday.

The Kukri is what the Hmong tribesmen used in Viet Nam. I watched one hit a dime on a tree 5 times in a row from at least 30 feet away. Some badass little slanty eyed mofos there.

Problem with the Kukris in Nam was that they were made out of Chinese steel. The ones you have pictured there though look like American or German made so they'd have a lot better steel.

Cold Steel I think is the name of the manufacturer of those Kukris. It should be stamped on the bottom of the blade. You can get them from BudK, they should run around $40 or so. I've never used one.

Not an easy knife to use. It's great for chopping but for just about anything else i'd much prefer the Bowie or Arkansas Toothpick.

Cold Steel is South African. Very high grade steel and affordable. The kukri is much more versatile than just for chopping. Heck you can even use it as a shovel. Very strong edge holding well made knife with nice balance. They also make an excellent selection of machetes.
