    Armadillo Whittler

    Somethin came to me in the mail the other day that I ordered a while back from Jerry Barlow down in Watts Oklahoma. I've bought several whittlers from Jerry now over the time I've lived here and this is my latest one from him, this one a Case 6308 pattern. This is a 1.5 ounce split back...

    Production knife watch 2010

    What are you guys excited about for the coming year? I've seen several new models from Cold Steel so far that I feel are worth trying. Their new two hand machetes and a couple swords coming out kind of excite me as well as the Triad lock they are moving into many folders now. I guess that...

    Cold Steel Mini Lawman

    I received a new folder in the mail the other day from New Graham Pharmacy. I had the choice of ordering one from yourcornerstore.com for less but the one from them is apparently the new updated version with the pocket clip moved to a new location to sit the knife deeper in the pocket. From the...

    Hinderer XM-18 Mid-Tech Production Gen III

    I got me a new toy in the mail yesterday. Been playing with it quite a bit here lately. Early lock up, great handle and I love the texture of the G10 Rick uses. This is the one I had wanted back when I got my first 3" XM-18 that was the flipper model. Couldn't stand the flipper though and ended...

    What exactly turns you guys on by Balis?

    I just ask because I've never taken to them. Obviously many have but whats the appeal for you? I mean how do you open one to use it without drawing attention to yourselves and where can you even carry one these days? Just curious and I mean no offense by it. I do respect the lock up...

    Best Bang For The Bucks 2009

    Here lately I've learned that as conscious as I thought I was about what is currently out there in the hands of end line users I've managed to get mailed a couple surprises in the way of knives that flew below my radar. While not all of these are/were ones I'd put in the best bang for the buck...

    What are your favorite blade steels? Why?

    Seems like a lot of folks have a strong preference for one steel over another. My take on this is relatively simple. If it works it works no worries about what it is. Honestly I worry more about geometry since I've had so many so called great steels that didn't perform very great at all being...

    New Slippie to my collection

    I snagged this one the other day and when it arrived I nearly choked on my cookie as I was opening it because the thing just floored me at how completely flawless it is. Its so incredible I can't tell you and of course the pictures, especially with my camera do not begin to do it justice. I want...

    Ralph Freer folders

    Ralph was one of the most helpful makers to me getting started in making folding knives. Years ago A.G. Russell sold a little folder by Ralph that I owned three of at one time. One was given to a friend. One to my brother and the other one disappeared. I'd like to have another one day. If you...
