Knife Snobs

Recommended Posts

I've only carried one knife since 1991. A spiderco endura w/ plain edge.

+1, except I go for the half-serrated blade (goes thru kevlar line like nobody's business)

It's a "decent" knife, that doesn't make me cry when I lose it (I go through about two a year...)

Kershaw Scallion, never without one. The one I carry every day is half serrate, the plain edge will shave your face. Fast, cheap, and perfect for me.

Usually a Kershaw Onion or an Onion Forum Knife (semi-custom version of the Kershaw Bump). Or a Kershaw Junkyard Dawg, or a Tim Galyean custom JYD or a nice Wharncliffe from Tom Ferry, which technically speaking is a little long for campus. On rare occasion I've carried this pimpalicous Timascus piece from Onion. As shown in the last picture (that was back in 2005 for the masters).

I carried this spyderco for years. I bought it around 95. It has since been discontinued. Spyderco reintroduced this model a few years ago, made a few, and then discontinued it again. If you like it, send me a PM. I'd sell it.

The second knife is a cheap S&W Swat knife I got back in my winter camping days. It's the ugliest knife I own, but it is durable!

The third is a buck from the 80's (I believe) and came with a bone handle. It's as sharp as a scalpel and has sentimental value.

Has anyone used the HAK - Hide Away Knife? ( http://www.hideawayknife.com/main.php ) I have a basic one on order.

I like the idea of having it custom fit to my hand and for ~70 it seems like a decent deal. I'm not sure about the neck knife option but you can "hide" it in unique places...like on a security (ID-style) badge.

Haven't tried one, but have thought about ordering one....looks like a neat idea that might be pretty handy.

I have 8 Benchmade's that have been carried over the years, a couple of Bowen's, a C.K.R.T., and two dozen fixed blades - including a Vietnam era Randall and a Gerber that pretty much stay in the safe, and a small Chris reeve pilots knife. For daily carry, the little Kershaw that was given to us at the Ft. Benning 3 Gun match last year goes in my pocket every day - and the Benchmade's stay in the safe.

I have a knife from Knifeart. its a fighter, not sure if I should hang it on the wall or try to stick it through a car door. Had the maker make a kitchen knife out of the same steel. it will cut through a turkey and the cutting board
