Peter Marker Damascus Folder
2008-06-05 05:58:00
Being a fan of Peter Marker ’s work, I snagged this puppy up real fast when I saw it come on sale on Bladeforums. Peter is one of the best values in Damasteel folders out there, bar none. He is a relatively low-key maker from Australia, and does some fantastic work. I had talked with Peter Marker ...

Frank Niro Mother of Pearl Fighter Knife
2008-05-24 05:22:00
This Pearl Fighter from Frank Niro was my first knife from this fantastic maker from BC, Canada. This is probably the first really fancy knife I’ve ever bought, and because Frank has such affordable prices, I was able to get it at a time when I was not able to spend as much money on ...

Spyderco Howard Viele C42 Knife
2008-05-08 05:36:00
The Viele C42 from Spyderco is definately what I would consider a Classic Spydie. Produced in relatively small numbers and with very high end parts for the time, the Viele was also reissued with higher end steel later, of which this is an example. I had one of the originals in AUS-8 Steel, with the ...

James McGowan Custom Mini-Chop Knife
2008-04-29 16:55:00
The Mini -Chop was designed by my friend Norman Lee, and built by James McGowan of Ontario, Canada. This bad boy reminds me a bit of the little prybars and tools that Peter Atwood makes, which Norman is a fan of. I received this little knife as a present in the mail for Christmas from Norman, ...

Paragon X-O Lite Manual Folder Knife
2008-04-15 01:56:00
The Paragon X-O Lite folder was probably one of my most disappointing folder purchases ever. I really had high expectations of this knife, but they were let down when I received it. Paragon manufactures mostly automatic knives, and does not seem to have a website. They do seem to still be in business as their ...

William Henry Westcliff Titanium Knife
2008-03-31 01:48:00
This Westcliff model from William Henry Knives was the first of the newer button lock knives that I had ever owned from the Company. They were introduced around five years ago and replaced the Spearpoint/Lancet/Kestrel series of knives. This Westcliff has a wharncliffe shaped knife blade of S30V and a titanium handle.

Spyderco Blackhawk C24 Folding Knife
2008-03-25 23:11:00
The Spyderco Blackhawk C24 is a very rare Spyderco of days gone by, and as you can see the example here is not in fantastic shape. I picked this up in a trade with a fellow from Russia. Don’t see these available very often at all, and probably bring in close to a couple hundred ...

Burchtree Knifeworks Bamboo Folder Knife
2008-03-23 18:33:00
Michael Burch makes some of the nicest folders out there in my humble opinion. I have been a fan of his Asian-influenced folders since I first laid eyes on them about a year ago. I asked to be placed on the list for a Bamboo folder several months ago… my guess would be about 6 ...

Klotzli Michael Walker ACC Knife
2008-03-14 04:07:00
This was the second Klotzli knife I have ever owned, and is probably one of the tougher ones, if you can even say that about a Klotzli. They are very finely crafted Swiss Made knives, but very unlike their swiss Brethren, the Victorinox Swiss Army knives. These are lightweight tactical gents knives, leaning more towards gentleman than tactical. (more…)

Allen Elishewitz Omega Folder Knife
2008-03-01 00:30:00
My first Allen Elishewitz custom folder was this Omega folder… after wanting one of his folders for as long as I could remember, I finally got one. Allen Elishewitz was a legend in my mind, with all his collaborations with Benchmade in the beginning, when collaborations weren’t as common as they are now. His designs really struck me as beautiful and functional. (more…)

Benchmade 921 Switchback Knife
2008-02-20 04:48:00
This 921 Switchback knife from Benchmade is probably one of my favourite Benchmade knives of all time. Designed by Warren Osborne, a famous custom knifemaker from Australia, the Switchback is unique in that it offers 2 knives for the price of one. In addition to the main blade which features an axis-lock, it has a ...

Couldn’t help myself with this beautiful folder. Soon as I saw it I had to have it! Its not every day you get find a Grant and Gavin Hawk knife made to this level of quality for the price that Zero Tolerance offers their folders at. There is no doubt in my mind that Zero ...

2008-02-08 07:00:00
I’d been eyeing Mike Irie’s stuff for quite a while before I saw this little Pearl gent’s knife and had to have it. The price was good, especially for a Mother or Pearl and Damascus folder from a recognized maker. I just couldn’t pass it up! Mike Irie does very nice work and this folder ...

Darren Chard Damascus Ranger Knife
2008-01-21 01:34:00
This is the first knife I bought from Darren, and started me on my road to collecting his knives. Darren was a member of the CKG at the time and I had found out about him on the CKG website. I remember feeling that his prices were very reasonable and that his work looked great. ...

Microtech Kestrel Manual Knife
2008-01-13 19:45:00
This Microtech Kestrel was my first Microtech, and I remember being very excited when I was waiting for it to arrive. This was many years ago when Microtech was not nearly as big as it is now, and the company was still respected by the majority of the people in the knife world. I ordered it online sight unseen like I do most of my knives… and when it came I was blown away by the quality! (more…)

Spyderco Cricket C29S Ying Yang Knife
2008-01-07 03:08:00
The Spyderco Cricket is probably considered one of the ‘cutest’ knives on the market, and is certainly the knife with some of the most female appeal, so embelishing it with some Sante Fe stoneworks work seems natural. Of all the knives I’ve shown to women, the Cricket is definately the one that appeals to them ...

Paul Chen Tiger Katana Sword
2008-01-05 20:47:00
This is the first Japanese Style Katana sword I have ever owned, so my impression of it is that of a beginner sword collector. I picked it up for a pretty good price, and really enjoy it for what it cost. I think it’s a really well made and beautifully construction sword, with a nice ...

Microtech Dragonfly Butterfly Knife
2007-12-25 07:00:00
This is one of two Microtech Drago nflies I have owned, with the beautifully milled Aluminum handles and smooth stonewashed blade. This one was made during the period when 154CM was unreliable and has the 14-4CrMo steel blade. This specimen has the combo edged blade, which in my opinion is less desirable, however sometimes you can’t ...

The Spyderco Pikal (or P’kal) C103GP is one of the newer MBC (Martial Blade Craft) knives from Spyderco, and is very unique in the way it looks. The knife is meant to be used in a icepick style grip with the edge in (towards yourself). The mechanics of why the knife is held that way ...

Klotzli Michael Walker MW1 Knife
2007-12-08 20:05:00
Ever since I saw Klotzli knives, I wanted one. I loved the colorful carbon fiber and simple designs, but at the same time really wished that they weren’t mostly combo edged. This MW1 Klotzli folder is the first of many that I owned, and is a very well made precision cutting instrument. (more…)

Chris Reeve Knives Large Regular Sebenza
2007-12-02 04:39:00
I’ve owned a few Chris Reeve Knives (CRK) Sebenzas in my day, and have watched them go from ATS-34 Steel to BG42 and then CPM-S30V. I’ve also owned one of each in the past, and had the pleasure of carrying and using all three of them. The two models shown here are in BG-42 (Unique ...

William Henry Pearl Damascus Lancet Knife
2007-11-14 06:33:00
This is one of a couple of William Henry knives that I have owned with a Mike Norris Raindrop Damascus blade. The pattern is simply beautiful, as is the knife. Entirely hand-finished in California, with the primary manufacturing also done by machine in California, these knives are the pinnacle of the production gentleman’s knife.

Microtech Amphibian Automatic Knife
2007-11-04 18:25:00
More Microtech goodness. The Amphibian is my favourite of the Microtech side-opening automatics. Beautifully machined and finished hard annodized aluminum handles, with 14-4CrMo steel from Latrobe, which is similar to 154CM. I picked this one up a while ago and had drooled over one for a long time before actually getting it. It was one ...

Tom Anderson Tanto Folder
2007-10-28 18:02:00
My first experience with Tom Anderson designed knives came from Master Cutlery. I immediately classified Tom as another Gil Hibben - a Great knifemaker who had sold out. However, I found out that Tom was still making custom folders, and lots of them. I thought that was pretty cool. I also found several step by steps on how he makes a folder on the internet and it changed my impression of him immediately. (more…)
