    Starting a new thread for members to show off their newest knives.

    Here's mine* a Rosewood/Brass Buck 110 with Drop Point blade and leather belt sheath. Stonewashed blade, brass bolsters and rosewood scales all look as nice as this example...

    Nice!

    I don’t like that clip point blade.
    I’m the traditional type.

    New pickup from last Thursday from the Dexter-Russell store in their factory from Green River Tactical. Green blade wasn’t my first choice, but it’s a tool and I don’t care that much

    I love the clip point, but wanted to add the drop point 110 to my little family of Bucks. Not disappointed!

    Nice. Looks grippy and well built. And, I like the color!

    Yeah, I actually like the sheath it came with. Basically loops through belt and it has the same pull-the-dot snaps as my holster

    The Kershaw Leek is old, but its in the picture to show the size of the Cold Steel Voyager EL (5.5" blade).
    Obviously the other knife is an M-9 (Ontario Knife Company) See more info below.

    I just picked this up this week. A Smith and Wesson “Black Ops”. I like it because it’s cool looking and I like to pretend I’m a hard dicked tacticool operator.

    I don’t EDC knives or even use them much but this thing flies open and is just cool. 3.5 inch blade. It was $35 how could I go wrong?

    Over the years I’ve had four or five of these. All mine were assisted
    opening. I like them because they are very good quality and I
    could beat the crap out of them without worrying that I was risking
    a high dollar knife. I think these are well worth the price being charge for them.

    Since I donated an other knife to the TSA this afternoon, I'm going to be ordering an other Kershaw/Emerson Amazon special.

    My newest blade is a Filipino machete that I bought a few months ago. Very nice weight and balance, and super sharp.

    Nice. Where did you find one selling it with the mahogany sheath? I had my mini bolo stolen in the late '80's. I still get miffed over it. I could build a fire knee high, burning thumb sized fuel yadaa yadaa yadaa like you wouldn't believe with the knife. The large ones are better but too big for all day carry on a belt. Sorry for the tangent.

    I purchased it from Traditional Filipino Weapons. Owner is Rob K, solid guy and legit FMA instructor. I`ve purchased many items from him over the years. All blades (I beleive) are made in the Philippines. He has a huge selction representing all of the various regions. And if you practice FMA, his sticks are the best you can find anywhere.

    [cheers] Ah, okay, alrighty. My blades were made on a dirt path from an old leaf spring on the PI outside the Jungle Survival Training. Not the same quality of knives. Very nice collection he has.

    Jungle Survival Bolo B (Knife on right)

    The ideal bolo for jungle travel. Used by the indigenous Filipino Tribe, Aetas, and designed for the US Military troops for their military survival training at JEST (Jungle Environmental Survival Training) camp in Subic Bay, Philippines. DOES NOT COME STANDARD WITH A SHEATH. A NYLON SHEATH CAN BE ADDED FOR AN ADDITIONAL COST.

    Materials

    Filipinos are resourceful and often use what is available to them locally. This mentality has spread throughout our structures, food, and bolo making. Most Filipino Bolos are made from leaf springs and ball bearings from vehicles. Handle materials range from various woods, animal bones (horse, deer, carabao, etc) and plant matter such as rattan. Plastic and even rubber truck tire are used in certain provinces.

    Fit and finish.

    These Bolos are not made in a production factory. They are hand made using traditional forging techniques often passed down from generation to generation. There are, and will be, variations from bolo to bolo. If cosmetic beauty or collectibles is what you desire, Don’t Buy From Us. These are rugged hard use tools made by people for people who’s lives depend on them. These are true survival tools in every aspect.

    A good blade is a good blade regardless of cost. I have a variety from low to high value, and many of the lower cost blades are my favs. Just keep them sharp and they will be there when you need them.
