    Opinel

    I carry 2 Opinels, a #6 in my pocket and a #8 in my 'man bag'. French made design thats been around for along time, simple, has a carbon blade that can be sharpened to shave with and best of all, cheap to buy (+/-$10)

    Locking the blade is a simple ring that turns

    Both of these blades are new, the top one I forced the patina to give it a bit of an aged look since it will look like that over time anyways.
    You can get them in stainless but I prefer the classic carbon blades

    I'll get up pics of mine when I finish it, but I have a custom hand-forged "adventure knife" modeled somewhat in style to this [​IMG] but without the dramatic drop point. I'm still working on the handle, but when it's done I'll post pics...

    I also have a Turkish dagger sort of like this [​IMG]

    I'll try and get a good pic of ALL my collection soon...

    Some of my favorites (from botton to top, also some great purple/pink vintage Manufrance shotgun shells)

    Special presentation grade Opinel with mirror finish and horn handel.

    My everyday carry, a Lagouile with handy corkscrew.

    My newest edition and one I have wanted for a long time a vintage Hirschflanger hunting dagger. Looking forward to wearing it proudly next time I am on a driven boar and stag hunt!

    I haven't heard of Opinel before now, but for the price I just ordered a #6 carbon steel. Those look completely cool, and I am partial to carbon steel from using/owning straight razors.

    Years ago I read an article where the author said that he loved carrying pocket knives and carried one for each day of the week. Needless to say I liked that idea and that's the way I carry pocket knives to this day. As I find something new, knives are rotated out, but here is my current lineup

    [​IMG]

    From top left:
    Mon: Puma Gent model w/ stag grips
    Tue: Fury Little Mustang - cheap, but very sharp! And it fits my hand nicely
    Wed: Gerber w/ stag grips and engraved bolsters
    Thur: Kershaw Chive
    Fri: CRKT Rollick
    Weekend: Remington R-5 w/ wood grips (I've carried one of these for over twenty years. It used to be my only pocket knife)

    The one on the bottom is a Browning w/ Mother of Pearl and engraved blade and it's my fancy/Sunday go to meetin' knife

    And there you have it. The sweet thing about a collection like this is that it's not too expensive to get started and you can change according to your taste and financial circumstances later on... have fun!

    On my (planned) trip through India this next spring I hope to pick up one of these [​IMG] which I plan to carry in a rig similar to this [​IMG] that I found on a knife forum.

    Smith & Wesson Horse Series. Blade length: 3.6". I don't like the handle in "Zytel", but it's a good knife for a daily service.
