    I've had this one on my person for the past 10 years. Limited run on this style.

    This was the first scandi grind knife I ever bought. Beautiful knife with curly birch handle. Sharpening scratches on bevel. Used very little as the handle didn't suit my unusually large hands.
    $75 plus USPS flat rate box.

    Not sure why Photobucket doesn't honor the edits you make to an iPhone photo, so I guess this will have to do. Sunday night oiling of knives in the rotation.

    Clockwise from top right:
    Kershaw Leek
    Case Sod Buster Jr in Peachhseed Jigged Bone
    GEC 15 Spearpoint in Ebony
    GEC bullnose in green micarta, O-1 Tool Steel
    GEC Bullnose in black micarta, 1095
    Northwoods Freemont Jack in yellow camel bone
    GEC 77 in sawcut bone, easy open notch done by me
    GEC 77 in elk
    Kershaw Launch
    Zero Tolerance 0562
    GEC 42 in Osage Orange
    Spyderco Endura4 Wave

    These all get carried, some more than others. I have a few others that don't get carried and are put up for collecting. Sometimes I get a knife and just can't bring myself to carry it because it's too pretty.

    Nice. Hatchets are really handy. I take a GB Small Forest Axe with me whenever I'm camping or traveling in the truck. Great to have if you need to build a shelter or start a fire.

    nah doesnt float but its a good knife!

    I have one just like the opened one. One thing you have to watch is the screws loosen up after a while. I need to carefully remove them and put locktite on them but havent got around to it. I just tighten as needed, the one screw that holds the blade in place cant be over tightened or the blade wont open. Harbor freight has a bit set that fits the small fasteners.

    I bought this for skinning, I paid a little more than I could have got it off ebay but oh well...I ended up quartering the moose my wife shot and it still was somewhat sharp, gave it a little touch up to finish skinning the quarters and it was good to go. I ended up honing it back up to razor sharp after we were done cutting. But Im impressed with it so far.

    Diamond stone. Spent the first half of my life as a chef, so hand sharpening is second nature.

    so last night,i started my deer hunt packing.

    hiking in to some far away spot. my friends have been hiking in to scout and cache water. one guy got a whopper already.

    trying to save weight, i opted for my Mora Carbon Companion. i even cut the belt sheath hook off the sheath to save an ounce. that ridiculous knife punches so far out of it's weight class. it loves my water-stones and becomes a scalpel.

    i dont even know why i buy knives. that Mora bumps my custom$ 80% of the time. if i was smart, i would sell them all and keep the sub $20 knife. damn.

    Also, for any gamers/nerds out there:

    Sneak peak of the Fallout "Grip-Boy™" I'm workin' on as a gift for my Brother (in-law). I still have to nickel-plate the beads and figure out how to attach the lanyard (maybe a hole in the pocket clip?) but I think it will be damn cool when it's done. My brother (in-law) is gonna love it.

    here is my latest. a clone from Battle horse knives. i had to get the edge way better, but it was easy to do. i wanted to get away from the scandi grind and decided to give this a try as a hunting knife. it's nice. the sheath could be made better, or with more care.

    Very nice !
    I was debating micarta when I ordered my igor cf scales but this matches my other fav EDC, 940-1. Just added my first spyderco to the collection, para military 2. Awkward after carrying axis locks for almost 10 years. Super high quality though, and ridiculously sharp out of the box.

    Nice! The CF looks good - especially on that pair. I've got a couple knives with CF scales, but the tactile feel isn't really for me; it's too smooth, almost chalky or powdery. I imagine the putnam-style staggering provides a better grip, too.

    My "FrankenSkyline". Swapped my Blackwash blade and modified G10 scales with the CF scales and S30v Black blade:

    And my LW Hunter in S35vn, and CF scales (I also ended up swapping the G10 scales from my D2 Hunter onto this one):

    I've also got one Spyderco in my collection. The Manix 2 XL. It's a beast of a folder, but still pocketable and functional. It has a slightly similar locking mechanism to the AXIS, so it might be one to keep in mind.

    nothing cool
    Decided to buy the OKC Carter Prime. Titanium frame lock on bearings with D2 steel. It's a little too beefy for me and heavy for my style of EDC. I like my knives a little smaller and 3oz ish and lighter. But the flipping action is amazing.

    If anyone has a Sage 1 they wanna trade for mine let me know. I have the Sage 2 and plan on getting the entire collection including the new 5.
