    I've got a small collection started with a few Custom Handmade Knives and the rest are Production Knives.Some are what I would call nice knives and others are just your run of the mill cheap knives.

    My nicest knife came from Sweden,Oak Leaf Custom Knives. Mangus is an artist at making knives. I stole this knife on Ebay,and after I received it,felt bad for what I paid for it. I will buy more of his knives.
    Oak Leaf Custom-Unitary- 2 3/4" 12C27 SS blade,7" overall,Amboina burl handle.

    David E Turner-Vero Beach,FL 6 3/8" 440 SS blade,11 1/2" overall,Stag handle/Brass bolster,File work on top of blade

    Randy Porter-Wahoo,NE 5" 440 SS blade,11" overall,Buffalo horn handle-Jigged to look like Stag,Etched SS bolster

    Pocket Knives- I've got several,but most don't deserve to be photo'd. I'm pretty rough on Pocket Knives.

    My favorite carry knife is my Buck,they don't make this one anymore and I don't know what model it is but it is a good knife. 2 3/4" blade,7 1/2 overall

    Kershaw Shallot Blk 1840CKT First Production-1 of 500 knives 3 1/2" blade,7 3/4" overall.

    S&W Viper, This was a gift,and is a piece of crap knife,but it looks neat. 3 1/2" blade,8" overall

    Also got a Limited Edition 1 of 50 custom boot dagger The Black Widow from R.Weber Custom Knives. Each one is laser etched with a spider web & spider on both sides of the double edge blade,and each knife is different than the others,and it came with a nice leather sheath with a boot clip. Mine just happens to be lucky# 13 of 50.

    I have a couple CRKT knives also. I must say that I'm not impressed with the M16-10KZ,it has a nice blade,but the rest of the knife just feels cheap,and who the hell came up with that "STUPID" unlock button for the liner lock. CRKT must have the same set of lawyers as Ruger.
    The Natural 7085,now this is a MAN'S knife,this thing is "HUGE". You better have a good grip on this puppy when you open it,I think they put way too strong of a spring on this thing,it will almost jump out of your hand when the blade flies open. I don't think many would carry this knife,it is big and heavy.
    A.G.Russell "Sting"2020 Bootknife, Love the knife,Hate the sheath setup. If CRKT would've just put a clip on the sheath and left all the straps and velcro for some other good use,it would be a great combo. Who is going to strap one of these to their arm? Rambo wantabe's! Just give me a sheath with a decent belt/boot clip and quit trying to invent crap up!

    I got a couple more. I broke the blade on my Buck Odessey,and had to replace it with another.Since they don't make it anymore,I could only find the one with the Serrated blade and I also found a Camillus Heat assisted opening knife. I have never liked Camillus knives,but this one is a nice knife

    Damascus for $60?? Faux Damascus? Or a less refined version? When I first saw the picture, I would not have guessed that was a $60 knife. :confused:

    Handmade knives

    Thank you very much for posting the photo of one of my handmade knives. With experience, my knives have improved. I've made and sold hundreds to individuals in many states. All the knives I make have elk or deer antler handles. One thing that may separate me from other knife makers is that I do not limit myself to sizes and styles of blades that have hidden (or push/rat tail) tangs. I buy blade blanks with full tangs and cut and grind them until them are suitable to be inserted into antler handles. The elk antler handles I use have been specially treated, finely sanded, polished and fitted with fancy wooden end caps. Use the link below to see a photo album of some of the knives I made. Click on the photo to enlarge it. Each photo has a complete description under it.
