After not posting in this thread for awhile it seems like I've been pretty active here lately! And the activities continue with this beautiful Russian hand made folder. For anyone who bristled when you read "Russian" I ordered the knife close to 2 months ago when the world was still friends with Putin, and it just took this long to be delivered, so no Russian zingers, please! It's a 9 3/4" oal "Cadet" lockback that sports a D2 drop-point blade without a n/n cuz the blade is wide enough to be pinched open, NS bolsters liners and pins, and ebony wood covers. Has a nice weight around 5 oz.'s and came properly sharpened. Smooth walk along with a similar talk and a fit n' finish that rivals any other. The sturdy hand stitched tanned leather sheath equipped with a belt loop displays scrimshaw/engraving of a duck in it's natural environment. If you can get past the Russian aspect you're looking at a really cool knife! 8)

I'm getting so many knives lately that it's becoming a job to post and keep on top of them all! Actually, I don't mind one little bit cuz if they're not coming in it means I'm not buying any and I'd much rather have it the first way! I got these 2 rather unusual Rough Rider folders today, very shortly after ordering because they breezed right through Customs without inspection. Wish they ALL went that way! Nuff' narrative! On top is a 6 3/4" oal RR1758 Southwestern pattern slip-joint Dr.'s knife with a 440 SS drop-point blade displaying a coined n/n, SS body that has inlayed turquoise, stripping, and engraving, and brass liners. It weighs but 2.2 oz.'s and came sharpened. Smooth walk n' talk with a half-stop, and impressive fit n' finish. I was quite impressed with the Southwestern series when I first saw it but wanted a knife with just 1 blade, so I was limited to the Dr.'s knife so I can now add another to my collection. Up second is a 10" oal RR2326 "Toad-Sticker" slip-joint that has a 440 SS needle-point blade with coined n/n, brass liners and pins, and Buckshot burl covers. This knife also weighs 2.2 oz.'s and came well sharpened. It has a very soft walk n' talk and the fit n' finish is excellent. I saw these knives some time ago and always wondered what uses a knife like that could have with it's goofy blade and all, and although I still have absolutely no idea I can say it's one cool little knife. Straight into the unusual pile it goes! Each knife came in it's own sturdy cardboard box that has a magnetized open/close flap, and worth nearly as much as the knives themselves! 8)

Well, the 2 more on the way I mentioned to Nev is now down to this knife cuz the other one was seize by Customs, but fortunately for me there's another copy on the way that will definitely get through! This is a 7" oal Guishenzhe slip-joint with D2 modified Wharncliffe blade and no n/n, SS bolsters liners and screws, adjustable pivot, lanyard hole, and Sandalwood covers although I ordered it with dark ebony wood covers. Very light for my liking at only 1.6 oz.'s but it did come well sharpened. It's walk n' talk are smooth and soft, and the fit n' finish are well done. I considered returning it for the model with the correct covers but the hassle involved just isn't worth it for a cheaper knife. I wanted something in my collection to represent a Karambit knife without buying one since I don't find them very attractive, so when I saw the shape of the blade on this knife I figured it would work! A teriffic knife for the key-chain or watch-pocket! 8)

I got this knife today to add to the ole' collection and let me tell you, it's a beauty! A 6 3/4" oal Roger Orfevre slip-joint with a 12c27 sheepsfoot blade with n/n, NS fluted bolsters, NS liners and pins, and jet-black paperstone covers. This is only the 2nd time I've come across "paperstone" material and I still don't know anything about it so it looks like Google time! My new knife weighs 3.6 oz.'s and the blade is as sharp as any I've encountered. It displays a firm walk of about 7 along with a very snappy talk. The fit n' finish is impeccable. I was on a "Wait" list for this knife for about 9 months and as soon as I got the notification it was back in stock I ordered mine, and it was well worth the wait! 8)

I got this really cool manual button-release linerlock stiletto today as a gift from my buddy Jamie from JamieinWV, and I absolutely love it! I saw this knife sometime ago in all-black on ebay as well as a copy in an AAPK store, but due to the higher prices and shipping problems the best I could do was to put it on my "Watchlist", and there it stayed until today. At the start of May Jamie asked me if I follow H&R knives, but it wasn't until I saw it in my mail today did I make the connection. It's very comforting knowing there are others out there thinking of me! The knife is a 9" oal Hen & Rooster manual stiletto with a bayonet blade with stud, SS liners button and screws, adjustable pivot, unique button-release linerlock, gun-metal dimpled covers, and pocket-clip. Nice weight of about 3 oz.'s and came with only the bottom edge sharpened. With my usual application of Q.R. oil it walks and talks smoothly and it's fit and finish is excellent. I am really happy with my new knife, and I have a fellow member to thank for it all! Thx Jamie! ::handshake:: 8)

It's been awhile since I posted in this thread but I got this beautiful knife in my mail today as a gift from fellow member Steamboat Willie! It seems Willie is thinning out his collection and decided to gift some of his pieces to fellow members and this is the one I got. It's a 9 3/4" oal 1971 Case XX P172L SSP "BOSS" lockback clasp knife with a SS clip-point blade, NS bolsters and shield, brass liners and pins, and nicely grained brown Pakkawood covers. Nice weight of about 6 oz.'s and Willie believes the previous owner ran it through a sharpener, but personally I can't tell. Has an opening pull of about 4, and closes with a loud "clack". It's over 50 yrs. old and still maintains it's perfect fit n' finish. There's an etch of a Bulldog along with "BOSS" on the blade, and from what I found out online the etch use to read "Buffalo" on earlier versions, but the two knives seem identical. From what I read online this is not an inexpensive knife ranging from US$105.-$335. used, but fortunately Willie didn't pay nearly that much at a yard sale. I needed a clasp knife represented in my collection, and due to another member's generosity I no longer need to find one! Thanks buddy! 8)

Thanks C-W! And you most certainly have it right that I like BIG knives. I like them to fill up my hand when I hold them and not slide around my big fat fingers like smaller knives will. I appreciate your comments bud! ::handshake:: 8)
