Went to the A.G. Russel knife show here in Rogers, AR last weekend. They held it at the local convetion center. Lots of big name custom knife makers where there, like Bob Loveless. Lots of factory folks, too. Some incredible knifes to look at. The only one I really fell in love with was a custom folder with a Loveless drop point hunter design. Lots of intricate tooling, stag handles. But I just could not put out $2900 for another gun safe queen, so we walked away.

I don't blame you for walking,I haven't been buying much in the way of blades lately either,really..spending too much on fishing stuff really,and crap for my son that he doesn't really need :strface: But,as I imagine you already know,as it seems you have a bit of blade knowledge,there really is no better investment I know of,compared to quality blades.Got to know what you are buying,but if you do (and if you can bear to part with them later)good pieces always return a nice profit;provided of course that they are kept in pristine condition,as it is with any collectible..

Thanks bro,I do appreciate that-I definitely have a bit of an affliction for steel. :D
And I definitely hear you about pocket items...although I don't always keep heat,I do always keep a nice blade and some thick Lexan knucks handy...old bouncing habits die hard..and the pistola is usually in the ride anyhow ;)
Can't imagine not having the freedom to decide for myself what I'd like to own or not...thank God we live in the only country in the world that has an amendment dedicated to preserving our right to arms as a last ditch measure against tyranny... 8-) I reckon if you've never really had freedom though,you might not be able to appreciate just how sweet it is...
“They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.”
― Patrick Henry
and of course this one from the great Va. statesman
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
― Patrick Henry
IMO,words as relevant today as when first spoken ages ago..

OH DAYUM ECU,I see that is from the Onieda Tactical Flatware collection...lmao I take it you are not a big blade guy...emphasis on "blade" there,as the very definition of the word implies a sharp edge...was pretty funny stuff tho ;)
Think about em like this-each pic essentially a MB reel...many even being LIN 10's...a few even being a big pile of LIN 10's.... :D

I don't have much, just a few Bucks, Old Timers, and a Gerber that I carry with me all the time. But I did just pick this up for hunting, Fishing, camping, and anything else I can find to use it for. :lol:

Will do gents...

And holy schniikeeesss...some B@D@$$ blades for sure.

Being a "wielder of weapons" for several decades...I get the chills thinking about how some of these works of art and combat weapons would feel in my hands!

You guys have some awesome blades.
I did own a few, but nothing to fancy.
With fishing and collecting blades, it was getting to expensive so I sold most of them. I do regret it.

I've been out of it for a while now, but still navigate the websites to see what's new.

The Para-Mil was probably my favorite, but rather hard to carry here in Canada, you'd get the looks when pulling it out.
The mini-grip or Bradley (poor man's Sebenza lol) were my everyday carry.
