    Awesome! I had a few straight razors many years ago, back in the 80’s. One of them was whales tooth with scrimshaw. I didn’t appreciate them back then. I think they may still be at my dads house. I recently picked up my1st in a long time. I’d like to get a nice collection going.
    It’s a Dovo/ Solingen with ebony wood handle. Stock photo.

    thinking the same, lol. I got some catching up to do. knives I've always wanted and should add soon to compete with you hardcore collector types are, of course, as I mentioned before, the kukri, and I've always liked the rat/busse stuff. you can't just have one, right? the bali songs have intrigued me also but I've done damage to myself twirling a cheapie around, minced fingers and took 4 stiches to my upper thigh. yep, I suck at tricks, lol.

    I had a nra knife show up at the door the beginning of January. ??don't know why, no letter, just the box with the knife?? it's marked stone river like your knife on the right, silversquirrel. the other side is marked "china". different style though, spear point and approx. 3" black coated blade. for a freebie, I like the thing. opens smooth, blade is centered when closed and if kept sharp, cuts and slices great. I've dedicated it to being my fruit slicer. i'm pleasantly surprised after using it for a month.

    Some amazing collections on here - and has me thinking of some new additions

    Mine is so pathetically small that I had to include the bayonets

    Time to start adding I think...

    The little one (Kabar LDK) is awesome and I have with me almost 24/7 - usually my EDC is the TDI (the other curved one)

    I don't care if you only have one, little, rusty, folding penknife in your collection. It will be welcomed here with honor.

    I like that golden spike.
    Mines been in the woods with me for over 40 years.
    I lost it once and was just shattered.
    Went back out and luckily it was sticking in a stump right next to where I had gutted a deer.
    I'm not normally superstitious but I wouldn't go without it.
    It's always brought me luck.

    You all are shaming me now.
    I'll have to post a pic or two of the collection soon.

    I've had the Buck folder for probably 30+ years, every rider I knew had one on their belt. I carried it until I found my first Benchmade.

    The little boot knife was made by my friend Dave in Ohio from a file.

    picked up a new knife this week. first time I've purchased a brand other than a spyderco in a long time. it's a case carhartt edition mini trapper with a 2 1/2" wharncliffe blade. 440 stainless, some kind of synthetic jigged bone scales and stainless bolsters, pins and liner. pretty nice knife, well made and finished for the price. marked case usa on the blade and has a carhartt medallion on the left side of the knife instead of one saying case. found it on amazon for a decent price, 26 bucks including shipping. only complaint was burrs on the blade, i could feel them when i ran the blade over my fingernail. had to hit it with a fine stone right out of the box.

    Been doing a lot of scouting lately and picked this up. I did tons of research and realized this isn’t most ideal for bushcraft enthusiast, but I’m a big Benchmade fan and decided this fit for me.

    Eventually I want some esee knives.

    me too, for sure, and i don't bush crawl anymore. just something about them...strong, beefy, nothing fancy...they just appeal to me. i'd find a use and excuse to lay one or two in just in case. [laugh]

    More than one is a collection, then again one is a collection if that is all you have, just my opinion...

    All of the knives are great.
