I have a muzzle brake fixed blade on the way.

The top one is pretty cool less the blockiness. The bottom one looks like a curved small sword

You're a "knife guy" too??? You've been holding out on us.

Can we expect to see more knife photos . . . I hope?

Ale-8(1), Yup, I collected knives for many years .... even belonged to the "Knife of the Month Club" for a few years. With some exceptions, most of my knives are US made. I do have a few Pumas that were made in Germany and a Pakistan made Damascus.

Short story. One day my wife and I were doing our tourist thing in Estes Park, CO. I went into a knife shop and there was a man I recognized from my old home town in Iowa .... John Horn. I hadn't seen him in about 30 years and had no idea he was a custom knife maker .... and a really good one at that. I bought two knives from him that day and just a few weeks later, I found out he passed away.

Here's my most favorite knife ever .... made by John Horn. It has a walrus ivory inlay with a scrimshaw eagle.



A good share of my knives are gun brand names like Colt, Remington, S&W, Winchester, Beretta, Browning, and a few Rugers. I pretty much quit collecting when Schrade, Western, and other companies started making their knives in China. My latest Ruger knife is a "Super Blackhawk" folder .... made in China. I will say ... Chinese made knives do look good but they just don't have the appeal of US made knives.

Nice knife. Good story.

Kinda hoping you can show us some of the Ithaca "Track" series knives from the 1970s.

Ale-8(1), It seems Ithaca knives are a collection of their own. I never got started because the good US made Ithacas from years ago are very scarce .... and expensive.
