This is my Barlow:

It was given to me when I was four or five by a friend of my Grandfather and father. It already had some use to it. The rest is from me using it constantly. I wideled like every day when I was younger. lol

This is my Schrade:

I use this one a whole lot. Check out my awesome serrated edge. I carry it every where I go. A few people think I am weird for having such a big knife (in my generation, every knife is a big knife).
I can open it as fast as a switch blade and I juggle it some.

Look at that barlow, that's what I'm talking about! I love the patina that carbon steel blades develop with use. Thanks for sharing.

The top two are Kabars, the bottom one is a Cattaraugus 225. I have carried and used all of them for years. Two of them I have worn the original sheaths out by getting them wet in the snow and rain and today they have repro sheaths. One original sheath still survives in good shape. All 3 date back to WW II. The top and bottom ones were US Army issue models. [Yes, the middle Kabar has a wood pommel, because metal pommels weren't a civilian option during WW2.]


The Cattaraugus and another period Kabar of mine.

Thanks for sharing superc! The Cattaraugus 225 Q was the best looking military issue knife ever made, IMHO. I just love it. I wish a quality version was still available (Ontario makes one, but it's not good).

I love to see those old warriors still hard at work.

Here are a couple more of mine.

I just won this one at the traditional knife subforum over at bladeforums. It's an Olesen from the '60s. I'll probably make a new sheath for it and give it a try as a deer knife. I love the pattern.




Next up is one of my favourite pocket knives, the Case Sodbuster with CV (carbon steel) blade. Inexpensive, tough and sharp as a scalpel. What's not to like?

Another Case with CV blades, a trapper with amber bone handle slabs. This knife has aged beautifully, I use it a lot.



For something a bit more modern, a Spyderco Mini-Persian. One of the very few Spydercos that I actually think looks nice. It's small and thin so I carry it often, it's got loads of beauty marks on the bolsters and blade.

And last but not least, one of my go to hunting knives, a custom by Diego Atwell (52100 steel blade, stag handle and ivory butt cap). Convex ground, of course.

Although I've always liked them, I've never owned a Sodbuster. Thanks a lot Francisco, now there's another knife on my wish list.

A Case Sodbuster Jr with carbon steel blade is a whole lot of knife for only $20!

I have to agree.

Gerber Freeman Hunter Fixed.
Ive had this knife for probably 7years. It has been a great hunting knife.
When I bought it I thought it was US model made in either AUS 8 or S30V steel but when I opened the pack it was Taiwan 440A (I believe).
Wish Id have spent the extra $$ for the better steel but as it is, it really holds an edge and the design is great for skinning and dressing big game.
Im debating on purchasing the US made version or perhaps making a similiar one myself from carbon steel.


And yes Francisco, thanks to you it now wears a convex edge
