    Gil Hibben Old West Bowie. Made my own sheath. Pretty close to a Roman short sword. Has a nice balance.

    Lost a Benchmade mini barrage mowing earlier this year.
    Still hopeful that I will see it again.

    Bought three El Cheapo (but not el crapo) Morakniv knives before Christmas. Gave one away, set one aside and used the other to go gutless on the buck I shot. Erring on the side of caution, I did bring my buck knife and green river knife along just in case.

    Morakniv knives work and they get sharp but also wondered if I would run out of whet stone before the deer got parted out in the field (wasn't that bad but I had to resharpen it 4-5 times).

    Santa brought me a Gerber mini Covert automatic. My new EDC. Spent an hour sharpening it I love SV30. So light it disappears in a jean pocket.

    A damascened bone-handled kard dagger with a wootz blade and a Kershaw Zing to replace the one that I lost last month.

    Nice! Kind of reminds me of one of my knives that reminds me of a Roman Gladius:

    Need to get a sheath made for it one of these days!

    I did go to my favorite pawn shop, all they had were junk Jaguar and other assorted Chinese knockoffs of dubious steel and lousy construction.:fire:

    No knife, but did get a Spyderco Sharpmaker. So far, really like it.

    While rooting thru one of my knife assortments (a.k.a., pile'o'knives[boxed] in a shoe box) I found a stainless steel NIB Spyderco C28P Dragonfly that I bought at the same time as the plastic-handle (lighter) version that I always carry with me. Seems to me that I bought these on-sale ~20 years ago (the C28P label shows a 2000 date) for ~$10-$15/each.

    On impulse, I googled to see how much they cost now. :what: They are now listing for a bit over 70 bucks.

    Good to know. :)

    SOG with 7" blade for my Daughter to take with her on her many camping/hiking trips. Self protection. For some reason she will not take any of her pistols (even where legal), citing they add too much weight to her backpack. Jcats knife2.jpg

    She'll leave that at home in favor of a Mora if she complains about weight backpacking.

    Picked up this little black Le Duck from Outdoor Edge that my buddy Jerry Hossom designed.

    I just ordered a "The Drift" from Quiet Carry. It's a Ti frame lock with a Vanax SuperClean blade. I went with the knurled handle, as shown in the picture I borrowed from their website. I've been waiting for a mass produced, relatively affordable, good quality folder with a Vanax blade; so I jumped on this when I realized they were available.
