Nice Knives

Here is my modest cutting tool or knife collection.

U.S. Ontario - 7 inch blade - easy to sharpen

Kershaw fillet - knife - stainless easy to sharpen & when working on a good size pile of fishes my fishing buddy usually sharpens the spare and sorts fishes as to size and species. That knife is good for 5-7 fishes before needing a touch up. I use this to fillet out cantaloupes for morning breakfast or for evening deserts with vanilla bean ice cream - good for 100's of melons. The rubber grip is slip resistant and easy to hang onto - cheap but a good knife.

Remington - small hunting knife with gut hook - cheap & easy to sharpen

Gerber - "Blackie Collins - Frisco Shiv", I thought I should have some knife that sounded bad. This is easy to pack around, holds a good edge and sharpens easily. About 25 years old.

Buck - small usual one handed folding knife - does not sharpen that easily or hold edge as well as others.

Victorinox - Swiss army knife, this is my newest knife - replaced an older one that sort of gave out. - I have a good technique to open wine bottles using the cork screw that involves 2 people or 4 hands pushing vs. pulling on the knife/cork screw. Possibly one day I will get to saw open the sternum of some beast with the saw. Bottle opener is used daily. Awl and scissors are frequently used. Probably best steel of bunch.

I use a fine diamond hone with light force on blade - I think this gives a finely serrated edge that slices well.

Just to the left of middle of my latest avatar, on the top of the light area is a tiny striped bass being led in, I use barbless hooks and he/she was promptly released. Looking at this gives an indication how these fishes avoid detection from aerial predation.

I have the same knife. When using the cork screw, I grab the knife between my middle fingers, and make a fist holding the bottle under the knife. I then rock the knife which creates a small movement of the cork. I reposition my fist upward and rock again. Do this a few of times, and you soon are able to remove the cork. Works every time, but can be difficult.

Bassman inspired me with his original post. I decided I needed to round up my "nice" knives. I don't have anything fancy or expensive, but these knives are all quality "Made in the USA". Most are from Buck, along with a Gerber, a couple of Schrades, and an original Leatherman. The Buck 110 was a gift from a friend employed by CSX Railroad. The Old Timer skinner has broken down many whitetail deer (that's tallow in the handle's grooves). The Leatherman has done everything from fill in as a bait knife offshore to slitting the throat of a 70lb pig I'd mistakenly put a broadhead through the wrong end of. The pointy Buck folders are for "social use". I like light knives so a light, pistol, and spare mag don't add up to an uncomfortable load.
