That's not a knife..show us your blades
« on: November 26, 2013, 12:51:46 PM »
I picked up this SOG not to long ago and its been working well. I use a knife at work a lot and decided to replace my box cutter type knife with this and so far so good. Holds a decent edge for a while and the spring assisted opening is great for one hand operation.

I've had various skinning and fillet knives over the years, but these are my go-to knives.

These are my two EDC knives.  Whichever happens to be the one I grab off the top of the dresser is the one I carry on a given day.

These are the ones that are about. There are others.

My good boot knife seems to be missing. I will have to have a chat with my daughter as to its whereabouts.

I like the 110, but it's just a really heavy lump to carry around in your pocket.

It is carried in a horizontal belt sheath. I rarely carry it. It's a throwback to my HD days.

I can't stand sheaths for lockers.  Fixed blades, sure, but what's the point of a folding knife if it needs a sheath?

The 110 has always been a do all kind of knife. Its solid and sharp. Hardly a defensive blade. The horizontal belt sheath keeps it with me unobtrusivly.

The one on the left is a Case XX, made in the USA. I bought in about 1967 and never use, so it's in great condition. The next is a Chinese Buck, which I don't use much, and the last I usually have with me. :inlove:

Tough to do in the US, unless you're US military or police.  In most states they're illegal and therefore, good ones are hard to get your hands on.  Benchmade does have some automatics, but you can't buy them online, for example.

I can check next time I am in Arizona. Nothing is illegal there.  :)  Having said that, try the SOG like I have you can get your hands on one. The come our pretty damn fast and are completely legal just about everywhere.

How much do you want to spend? Yes they are illegal, but you can order them without having to provide any proof of LEO or Military affiliation.

You can buy a SOG Tac Auto for $100. I have one and its a good knife. This isn't mine as mine is a tanto with a half serrated blade, but it's basically the same knife. I used mine as EDC for several years and never had a problem. Just lube and sharpen it on a regular basis.

The gold one is a limited edition from Cabela's- Buck's Special 119 with Cocobolo wood grip and Titanium Nitride coating.  Free lifetime sharpening- I send it there, they cover shipping back.  I shot you not- this is far and away the sharpest knife I have ever handled.  I send it out every 2-3 years, in which time it has gutted and cut the sternum of 4-8 deer.  I mean it's crazy sharp- shaving is not an issue.  Amazing for a knife of that size.

The second is my Schrade Old Timer given to me by my grandpa when I turned 10.  That's my EDC.  Carbon steel- not stainless- meaning I can also get a wicked sharp edge on it, and it holds.  The downside is that it's carbon steel, so it needs some special care.  I use the drop-point blade for the every day stuff and the other two blades for careful sharp work.  I love my knives razor sharp.  I also have a few other Bucks and Gerbers in the truck and van, hunting jacket, etc.  All stainless.  They mostly serve various duties as needed.  The only knife I see myself buying yet is a good quality steel automatic.  Otherwise I'm really set for knives.  For me my knives are simply tools, and I pretty much have all the bases covered- I'm not a collector, just a user.

I also have a couple machetes.  I used them for brush clearing and turtle head removal (for butchering).  My in-laws gave me a Bear Grylls Gerber machete for Christmas a couple years ago- at first I thought it was some cheap POS with his name on it, but it actually has a good, heavy blade and rides with me in the truck for brush-clearing and such.  Works well.  I also have a few cheapies and I throw in the duck boat for cutting cover-brush.  None of them are anything special.

I think that covers it.

Edited to add:
I also have a Leatherman Wave that goes with me anytime I am not in school or dressed up.  No pics needed- you know what they look like.  The thing is awesome- one of the handiest tools ever.

What are you all using for sharpening?  For my knives (other than the special edition Buck) I have a Lansky clamp, rod, and stone system.  It works well.  I'll sit on the couch, watch TV, and sharpen knives when they need it.  The machetes get a file, of course.  No need for razor sharpness on those beasts.

This is probably the most interesting knife I carry: the Clinch Pick.  It is optimized for reverse grip, edge in but also I find it very handy for trimming tasks.

The designer is trainer, UC cop and friend Craig Douglas.

Edge in? Looks like it's designed for edge out to me. I'd have to see it in your hand to see how the hilt shape would work edge in.

And apparently now that it's posted, the orientation is correct.

Where can I get an automatic that doesn't cost hundreds but isn't shite?


How much do you want to spend? Yes they are illegal, but you can order them without having to provide any proof of LEO or Military affiliation.

You can buy a SOG Tac Auto for $100. I have one and its a good knife. This isn't mine as mine is a tanto with a half serrated blade, but it's basically the same knife. I used mine as EDC for several years and never had a problem. Just lube and sharpen it on a regular basis.

How's the steel quality on the SOG?


SOG was one of the first manufacturers to get into the boutique steels in a big way -- they generally used good stuff, and will actually list the steel used in ablad, unlike the hocus pocus of "Surgical Stainless," which is the cutlery version of "Aircarft grade aluminum."

SOG uses a number of different steels in their blades, but I would buy, and carry, any of them with confidence. I don't, but not because of their steel choices.
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Kershaw Speedsafe Cryo something. Supposed to be matte grey, but they sent me black. I like it fine.

 

ALSO:

Grandpa's longknife from Phillipines, WWII, with wooden sheath.  Giving to my brother, who is a closet knife freak.

Dan -- the Philipino knife is a treasure! Good for you (and your brother).

Please replace teh zip ties with real, or simulated sinew (Tandy and some Craft stores). The plastic may degrade the wood over time.

some kind of natural twine would like be fine, too.

For some reason tapatalk insists on orienting this image this way.

But you can see the edge faces in towards me.


Ah, I see my mistake. The knife is edged opposite of typical- the concave side is the sharp one. I hadn't seen that before, and when you posted the pic of the knife in your hand I was set to argue what edge in vs edge out meant until I looked a lot closer at the first picture.

You are not the first person to make that mistake. I have to give a little safety speech before handing to anyone to inspect. Then, no matter what I told them, they treat it like a conventional knife, and as often as not, cut themselves with it.

LOL- I made the same mistake as I watched this.  Unusual design!
