steves little collection

Postby 8steve88 » Thu Jan 26, 2012 1:52 am

Mostly folders. The one on the bottom left started it off, it's a Zippo.

All the little spideys, the Kiwi is my current carry.
Image
Opinel for the price you'd be crazy not to.
Image
The one on the bottom of this lot has to be seen to be believed, it's a monster, so smooth it almost opens on it's own.
Image
Image
Ceramic blades, the top two do kitchen duty, and one of the monkey fist lanyards goes on my key ring, it's tied round a 1inch ball bearing.
Image

Image
The kukri came from India about 1946.
Image
My only Paul Chen piece - a multitool built around a pair of serious scissors.
Image

EDIT - I forgot to add what I think was my first Blades U.K. purchase - all 12 of them, I was pleasantly surprised at how sharp they were - 8/10 0n the where's the plasters scale. :D I remember thinking that at £24 for 12 6" blades they were very good value (a sharp 6" knife with a 3" cutting edge for £2 each), I was going to wrap the handles with paracord and maybe sell them on but they wrap into a nice parcel so I kept them as is, I just discovered them again this evening when installing a printer to use on my laptop.

A very, very nice collection indeed, both myself & the wife like all of those pieces.
My personal favourite was the tanto style folder, you don't see that style on a folder that often.
My wifes favourite was the one in the middle of pic 4, two above the monster folder.
All in all, a great collection, thank you for sharing them with us, all the best,
Martin & Donna.

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 the Rui underneath it. None of the chisel ground stuff. I'd not heard of Rui before but they're some of the best quality I've got and I'd buy some more given the money to play with. The tanto above the Rui is an Uzi assisted opener, it's chisel ground and my thumb just isn't up to the opening mechanism, something to bear in mind if your ever thinking of one, if the guns were built like the knives they'd be out of business.

That folder of yours blade master isn't a knife that's a pocket sword. :D
The kukri came back from Bombay with my father after WW2. It's been festering in a drawer for years, the sheath isn't bad but one of the small knives has a patch of corrosion but for sixty seven years without any attention it's not done badly.

There should have been another assisted opener in the line-up but one that I really liked and thought of as high quality the Tenmylle Auto went graunch when I was playing with it and I've not put it back together again yet. Note - Do not forget to loctite the pivot screw, nothing broke just the spring slipped.
