Default knives

The last knife I made was the folding Buck copy in the picture about 32 years ago. The only tools I used to make them were a drill,bench grinder,ball Pean and some files. The quality was not all that good but it worked for me. I start with Quality in mind but I get anxious to see the finished product and quality is out the window. I probably should give it a try now, I've gotten quite patient in my old age.

You should definitely give it a try! There are loads of good knifemaking supply stores that might come in handy for parts and handle materials as well. It's a nice hobby.

I wish I had the time and workshop space to start making knife handles and sheaths again, I enjoyed it a lot (I got my blades from different bladesmiths).

Might not be TOO well used but... it cuts my oranges. Just a cheapie from a truck stop I picked up while escorting. Served its purpose for cutting tarps, wires, ect.

Hey guys, you have seen my babies (guns) and how Linda spoils me. Well, now it's time you see her addiction. Here are a few, just a few, of her babies. Now I can't name half of them but I'm sure she can. Linda loves and I mean really loves her spyderco knives. These 4 pictures don't even begin to show how many she has. As long as she wants them I will support her. Enjoy. Ask her any questions you would like as she loves to talk spyderco.

That carbon fibre Police is SWEET!! The Terzuola Starmates are really cool, too. I'm working on a trade for one of those.

You're lucky DZscubie, your lady has fantastic taste in steel. Spyderco is a great brand, I try to keep my collection varied but I always seem to be adding more Spydies than anything else. Thanks for the pics.

Here is my Gerber Tanto getting a FULL cleaning. A knife should not have this many moving parts
