I used to have several knives but now I do not have any any more. I figured I just do not need any. Indeed I rarely need a knife.

Here you go this guy makes some super nice knives.

McCroskey Custom Knives

I have personally seen a set of his. They are so sharp you have to be careful putting them back in the leather sheath or you will slice right threw it.

OMG i just got my Kershaw assisted opening knife. I think I am in love. it is so nice to have a knife that opens right now.

The handle has plenty of grip but it is not so sharp as to tear your hand up if really using it.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Just bot my Boker Magnum tonight. Here are a few pictures of the two. the Boker is a very nice knife it is heavy lots of metal in this puppy. Very nice wood on the handle, but it doesn't have a clip and weight is so much that it would pull your pants down on one side. The Kershaw is OMG scary sharp I already cut my thumb with it (No Blood). It is light is assisted open which this is my first one. I will never buy another non-assisted knife again. The Kershaw is not as fancy as the Boker but it is light weight scary sharp and feel much better in the hand. I am going to have to buy more Kershaw knives in the future.
