As it turns out I can carry it on the left side and another one the right.

Hurry up and dig your knives out Dave and spot pictures.



Chicken hawks seem to be good sport too, but that's just what I'm told since it's illegal here.



Nice drop point Jim, I made a few knives when I spent my summers in KS as a kid, it was fun and I dabbled in it for a while. I finally moved on to reloading and shooting but I still like custom knives.

I don't really like knives at the bottom of my pocket, especially in dress clothes. That is one of the reasons I liked the Syderco C22, it was light and the black plastic clip did not stand out when I carried it in the office. On the other hand, I have wondered if a small fixed blade like this in a leather sheath with a pocket clip would be a good EDC.



To put the knife above to scale...

Dave those small knives would do most anything you'd need. I really like the first one too!

I had my EDC, a small, cheap Spyderco Michael Walker C22 liner lock with me so I finished the deer with that. Eventually picked up a Spyderco Native and used that as an EDC. The Spyderco's have been great knives, decent steel, hold an edge and the poly handles are tough. The C22 is very small, I have small hands and it is completely hidden in my fist, the Native is a little larger.





I was given a CRKT M16 and sometime along the way, someone probably thought they wanted it more than me. I was not really fond of the tanto blade, it was a pain to sharpen. The M16 has a super smooth action though.



This year, mdy oldest daughter (17) asked me for Christmas present ideas and I gave her a list of possibilities and she picked the Sod Buster Jr from the list. I have always like the Sod Buster design and it is shaving sharp right out of the box. I really like it, it is larger and heavier than I expected but it is not a bad EDC.



I really like the Buck 103, I remember seeing my uncle's when I was about 13 and I liked it then and I like it now. It sure is a classy looking knife and I may get one to throw in the safe the others.




After skinning a few deer with the Spyderco Native, I saw a Schrade 143 for 19.99 at Academy, I liked the rubber grip on the Schrade 143 better and this is what I used for ages until it disappeared. I recently replaced it and picked up the 141, a non-guthook skinner for backup. Even the Made in the USA Schrade's can be found for less than 25.00 if you shop hard.



I like the new Buck Paklites, the two knife set with the gut hook would be a great backpacking set.

Awww nuts... now I gotta post up some knives! Be back in a bit.

Mike- thanks for posting up the camo work. I would have never thunk to do it that way. Gonna try it out on my Savage .17 HMR. Ought to look good with the SS bull barrell... if I do it right! Won't be Urban Camo, however...

Yeah, well... I've had captured nuts for 22 years! You can't cut what you can't find!


This is a pic of my favorite knives. I was always a Schrade fan, back when they were a US company. IMO, they had no equal. Their quality and guarantee was better than anybody's on the market. I think Buck has a similar guarantee today, and they may have had it all along... I just wasn't a Buck fan. I have other knives (belt and sheath knives) that I love also, but these are the one that have spent the most time in my pocket. The green one is my most carried knife. Unlike Dave, I like the feel and comfort of a knife in my pocket. I went from BIG pocket knives to medium pocket knives. Not much sense carrying a knife that pokes you in the jewels when you bend over, or one that is so big that you can't put your hand in your pocket. The black Buck is the knife my son gave me for Christmas. My first "clip" knife. I like how it rides, but my hands are XL, and my hand won't fit in my pocket while it is clipped in place. But I really like the knife. I have cleaned deer/game with all of the them. The bone handled Uncle Henry is the best for that, just too big for your pocket. I have the leather pouch for each of them, but I don't like "belt" knives. Belt knife, in my terms, is not the same as a sheath knife.
