Little pocket dump pic from last week.



This little guy slice, slice and slice putting all my other blades to shame.
Now would like to see what the bigger 3.75" VG-10 C143GP version is like... anyone has one?

some are allowed some aren't. also depends on the officer. if it's really long you'll go down to Cantonment. try your luck or ask SPF directly before bringing it in. Give them the pic and specs etc.

I like some of the Filipino blades sold by TFW. the only thing I don't like is:

- the horrible belt clip. That totally ruins the traditional look IMO. I'm sure it can be removed. Long blades are mostly just held by the sash.
- the rattan bindings look filmsy - they need to be woven/braided. I'm speaking from firsthand experience on rattan bindings - if they're just wrapped without being woven/braided, they will come loose over time due to expansion and friction.

Do get it - In my opinion, the 13" knife should be ok, it looks like a parang and parangs are permissible. It is probably a parang-type blade. I would be keen to test one should you get it in and want to show it.

Agree with the rattan bindings. They tend to come loose with use. Will probably replace them with hemp or sinew if I eventually decide to get the blade.

do you know how to tie them? like on native sheaths (simpeh)? I need help with tieing some on my scabbard so I can thread a rope belt through (ala orang asli parang carry).

Anyone know of any knife rehandling services for kitchen knives? I found an old handaless knife at home and I am thinking of 'reviving' it.

pic and value of the knife? I'm sure some hobbyist may try. Few in Singapore do this, but I know there's a chef that does work on wusthoff/henckel knives - ask Razorsharp for his contact. No idea on price or workmanship either.

you don't want your handle to be worth more than your knife, unless for sentimental reasons.

if you want to send it out to the US/Europe/elsewhere - many knifemakers/hobbyists do that.

Looks to have quite a few good thoughts put into its design.
Pivot is dropped a little below center line.. so given the ergo and length to width ratio.. all those factors works in favor of some fast action for sure, so long as the washers are decent enough. The rest boils down to maybe a minute tune of pivot tension to get what one likes..

Sorry no real experience just my 2cents analysis here on a bored afternoon
The other time when I looked at it.. I thought it might be a fun steak knife for me.

there looks to be a cold steel revival over here recently!

well, at least it's CTS-XHP steel (which is like a stainless D2, and that's a good thing). I never like super stabby blades personally....it just screams out for attention and the purpose for carrying begs to be questioned....

Looks like the late Phil Bogi helped to design it as well....that's a good thing too.

Hello,
Got a couple of nice folders sitting in my safe collecting dust so tossing it out there if anyone is interested. Asking for what I have in them (approximately that is):

For the collectors

- ZT801 stonewashed version. Elmax. All perfect. NIB. USD210 via paypal.
- ZT0392 limited edition stonewashed/working finish. CTS204P. All perfect. NIB. USD500 via paypal.

And some users and fixies for the users or adventurers

- Enzobirk folding puukko customized with a zero grind and poboy emerson style. S30V. USD300 via paypal.
- CAS sold
- Big Chris Bolo (13" blade) - a real brute for your adventures. CPM3V. USD550 via paypal.

I'll absorb the 4.5% paypal fees

If you're nice and buy more than one, I'll discount further or throw in some freebies.

THanks for looking - all items are legal to own. All have delicious steel and all are razor sharp and ready for action.

small bump for the public holiday. If you're around the central/west areas, I'll even brave the haze conditions and deliver to you!

That CAS is a beauty. If it's bigger and within my budget I would have taken it off your hands.
Thanks. It's 6.1" bladelength. Budget is about 2 cold steel Laredo in 01 steel I'm amenable to slight nego too

BTW, you asked about SK5 - it's basically 1080 steel, it's a Japanese classification. between that an O1, I'll go for O1. 1080 is a rust magnet like O1 too, but if you oil it, it'll be ok.

Between a cold steel bowie and the Filipino chopper, I'll go for the Filipino chopper any day and twice any night. I think bowies are a little out of place for my use, I like them though but the fancier forged ones for pure collecting. I don't mind bottom guards but top guards make me feel constricted

Ulu areas and dogs - better to bring a stick/trekking pole. You don't want to kill the dog do you but a longer stick will give you the reach. Maybe doggie treats might help. Or bear spray?

I have no experience with BD1.

Rare Vintage Carl Schlieper Bowie

I have a Carl Schlieper Bowie, made in Germany, bought in 1970s, for sale.
Blade is stainless, ice tempered and length is about 19.5cm. It's unused and near mint condition.
Unable to download pictures but you can see a similar knife, here:

Need some advice

Hi knife experts:

Just a quick question:
Does anyone have any experiences with CKF knives? i came across the Gratch which thought was nice but im not very sure if the high price is justified.

I own reate, benchmade, zts and spydies and i was wondering does the extra cost for a CKF really translates to that much of a qualtiy difference? i mean i can easily buy two good quality production knife for one CKF knife.

Thanks in advance!
