Re: Too Much To Choose From!!!

jamesbo551, you might need to de-encrypt that post. :D Hi Skylark, I've got one of the Budo Dragon Tantos a lot nicer than the price would have you believe, I was stunned when I unwrapped it, and definitely get some renaissance wax, I've got all my blades protected with it and the sheaths as well. I...

Re: steves little collection

Hi there liquidator96, thanks, I've only been collecting seriously for about six months but my bank manager says that I've got to stop for a while. :cry: Your wife's favourite is a Buck Omni Hunter, comes with it's own Cordura pouch. The tanto you like, if it's the Rui, is a nice piece along with th...

steves little collection

Mostly folders. The one on the bottom left started it off, it's a Zippo. http://i318.photobucket.com/albums/mm417/8steve88/general%20pics/knives/buk/IMG_6869.jpg All the little spideys, the Kiwi is my current carry. http://i318.photobucket.com/albums/mm417/8steve88/general%20pics/knives/buk/IMG_6874...

Re: Wood anyone know?

Hi there liquidator96, you could try your local roofing contractor or diy store for lead strip and wrap the handles A full roll 300mm wide cost about £30 but a contractor will have off cuts. There's also flashband, It also comes backed with pitch like adhesive, pull off the protective cover and star...

Re: Our Little Collection

Hi Martin, "Looking foward to seeing those pics," I've been a bit busy but I managed to get the camera set up last night and should take some photos this evening, I'll get round to posting some this evening but there's a lot of dross in the "collection". I can guarantee that they...

Re: Our Little Collection

I've been meaning to get some photos taken in a layout style. The Pear Wood saya on the Huang Ninja has been catching my eye for a while, I made a living out of wood (Joiner) and love the different grains and rays in various timbers, there was a product that I used called Briwax that really let the ...

Re: Our Little Collection

Hi there liquidator96. Good collections, I spy one there that I've got, the Elk Ridge Bowie with the brown sheath. I've also been considering the Huang Ninja Sword. We must have similar tastes because there's not one of those on display that I don't like. Some nice folders there, that Scorpion one i...

Re: Happy New year all

Hi Addum. Nice looking blade that rapier. If I had the money that John Barnett Scottish Broadsword or the Barnet Single Hand Broadsword look nice pieces but I'm really wanting a Budo Crane Ninja Sword to keep my Budo Dragon Tanto company, I like the Huang Ninja Sword very much though but I'm a bit (...

Re: Happy New year all

Hi there Moon. it’s nice to have a top quality folder or two if you use them but most end up as drawer queens You are right there, my current every day knife is a Spyderco Kiwi it's U.K. legal and cost £20. I'd be gutted to lose a high priced knife to a police stop or damage. Most of my folders get ...

Re: Happy New year all

I do happen to like folders but they are never going to be as strong as a fixed blade and although some have only two moving parts - the blade and linerlock or framelock - that's still extra parts to fail. Emerson knives are a seriously overpriced brand and are only chisel ground, if you want to get...

Re: Happy New year all

I was surprised at the high quality, but it is a Chen. It has a razor sharp 3" lock-knife with a thumb stud and a full flat grind, but it's built around a pair of shears. Sorry blade master but I heard it calling from the clearance bin and a tenner is still a long way from a Chen sword, I'll st...

Re: Happy New year all

Well, my first blade of the year arrived today. It's a Paul Chen and it only cost £9.95. It's a Paul Chen Multi Tasker and it's probably the only Paul Chen that I'll be able to afford for a while. It's not a bad multitool - reduced from £24.95, in the clearance section of an online knife store. A ge...

Re: Happy New year all

Cheapies for me, Budo Musashi Tanto to keep my Budo Dragon Tanto and Cold Steel Tanto Lite company and possibly the Budo Whirlwind Ninja Sword. At the moment I'm not sure I'll be able to afford even those cheapies. I'll have about £25 credit at HH after sending back a faulty blade, so it'll be a Ker...

Re: My collection

Hi Owner7771, from Spyderco website, Bug and Honeybee listed as just 3Cr. Grasshopper is 8Cr13MoV. Coincidence as I'm fitting a ringpull to the Spydeyhole,the ring part of a keyring large enough to get my finger through, I find the Spyderco slip joints to be just a bit too strong on spring pressure,...
