    I like linen micarta. Couple of decades back I spent some time building knives just over 100 knives. They all had full tangs, nickel silver hilts and stainless blades. This pair are 7 and 7.5".

    Good to hear from you Yahoody!
    Hope you have been well, safe and healthy.
    Absolutely gorgeous collection you have made. Very impressive.
    A heavy Randall influence in the profile. I’d love to find one reasonably priced.
    Love them.
    Be well. Bowen

    Thanks Bowen. All good here. Bought my first Randal back in the '70s. Still have a few. Thought they were good enough to copy :) Fun to play with the weight and balance when making your own. But hard to beat a Randall #1, #2 or a 14.

    I 'fashioned' the knife on the bottom from a Swiss bayonet. I call it the Bowie Defender!

    IMG_4905.JPG BA0C8C6A-9DCA-4614-B2F0-835BA46E29C1.jpg I don't know if kitchen knives are on topic, although these two knives are the sharpest thing in our household.
    The knives are made by Benjamin Kamon, a young bladesmith from Austria. Handles are made of Desert Iron Wood and wrought iron. I really enjoy using these knives every day in our kitchen!

    As a field biologist these are my three Puma workhorses. The Coyote (right) is for day trips and local work. The Bowie (center) is for work in North, Central, and South America, and the Buffalo Hunter (left) is for African fieldwork. IMG-0654.JPG

    I love traditional American pattern knives.

    Brett Dowell made me this double bladed slip joint beauty. Carbon Fibre covers, orange G10 liners and CPM154 blades.

    Here are pics of some knives from my French connection. The top 3 are from my favourite shop...Fontenille Patuad out of Thiers. The bottom is a Rossignol I picked up at a winery CIMG1949.JPG CIMG1950.JPG CIMG1951.JPG CIMG1952.JPG

    My search continues for the perfect EDC.....this Buck knife ain't it. The thumb screw sits too low to be of use and overall it is just too stiff to be of any great use. Looks good but still my little Case spring assist is the one I continue to carry. The search will continue..... CIMG2034.JPG
