My EDC (bigger than life-size). Not currently in my pocket as I'm travelling and would rather not risk losing it by forgetting to put it in hold baggage. Nice little piece, though, and despite the limits of our UK knife laws, it's all the blade I ever need on a day to day basis.
Living in northern Scotland I need something a tad bigger for when I'm hiking the hills or bushcrafting. I have these two (not EDC!) knives, both of which I bought new in the late 1980s. They're a bit banged up but still all I ever needed. Top is a 1988 dated British army survival knife (usually lives in my rucksack) while the bottom one is a 1989 dated Ontario USAF knife.
I still have my dad's old Buck 110 somewhere but I also have this German Puma version with staghorn grips. It was made in the 1970s and also belonged to my dad. It lives in a drawer, never been used.
That is correct. Knives of this vintage used carbon steel blades, which rust at the drop of a hat. Frequent use cutting in to fruit with its strong juices, would rust a steel blade in no time at all. Silver was used instead, to prevent this.
I can only make out the hallmarks of the bottom knife. It's solid silver, made in sheffield by Arthur Worral Staniforth. I can't quite make out the date mark but that particular maker's mark was used between 1913 to 1919.
Hope this helps.
Doesn't look like a knife, Zombie or otherwise. Looks more like a Parang or Bolo machete used for clearing thick undergrowth. The US military used something similar as a direct result of having these machetes used against them in the Spanish - American War.
