We sure do like our assorted defensive weapons...Edged and otherwise.
I like reading about the various knives that folks collect & own so be sure to let us know what you like.
Feel Free to post all your knife questions in the blade forum.
That's a good topic ~ Open up a new thread.
I must admit I have never bought a custom knife and doubt I will unless I find something that I suddenly can't live without. I carry a Benchmade Stryker most of the time and I have a couple of others but I'm not really a knife guy. :wink:
This place needs you to start some great conversations about knives!
It has been slow to start, but with your expertise it may get happening here!
I have one true custom knife, but I am at home with nice production pieces. I like to carry them, so a high quality production knife works for me. That is why I like Microtech, Benchmade,Chris Reeve, Merc-Worx, AlMar, Charles Ox, and a few others.
I have a couple of "GT" auto knives, and I don't see those that much anymore.
I have quite a few knives, but only two real custom pieces. One is a knife made from a railroad spike that I bought purely for looks, however it turned out to be a decent knife. The second is a custom ANZA knife I just purchased, I haven't recieved it yet, but I expect it today or tomorow.
I don't have any true custom pieces. I like to drool through arizonacustomknives.com. And doggone it (it's all your fault) I just had to take a peek again, clicked on one link, and already found something I like.
Honestly, I'm starting to think custom knives are a bit overrated. I have a Jens Anso Personal Sheepfoot, a Kathleen Tomey Day Hiker, and a Larry Beverly linerlock. The first two were built to my specs, the latter purchased at a show. I like them all, but at the end of the day, my favorite knife is my small sebenza. The problem I have with customs and high end production knives is that I worry too much about them or feel like I've wasted my money if I don't use them enough. I don't feel that way about guns. I don't know why I feel that way about knives.
That's the Spyderco Mike Walker limited edition with carbon fiber/blue anodized titanium, and I believe it's the only Swiss made Spyderco. Spyderco also made a Zytel "Lightweight" model. Both have been discontinued (which really irks me, because I had the Mike Walker Lightweight, gave it away, and really want another one).
