I don't think any knife collection, or life, is complete without owning and operating a Gerber Mark 2.

Why they discontinued that blade will forever confuse me. Why I ever traded three of them away alway thinking I'd get a new one at the PX will haunt me.

From one ETS knife addict (I have the mini-Mk1, the Mk1, the Mk3, and the Mk4) to another I have one thing to say:

Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1 Mk1


One really REEEEAAAALLLLY sweet folder. Come on, you know you want it.

Oh, and you don't need to baby the Mk3. It is one tough knife. Just clean the blade soon after each use. That goes for any blade.

P.S. Next comes the desire for a reeeeaaaallly nice axe.

If I haven't said so previously...

Welcome Aboard TS!

Regarding knives and ETS, I understand where you're coming from. THough I've always had one knife or another throughout my life, I didn't know what was out there until I came across ETS and branched out.

I have more knives than I can carry now, and I don't know how that's helpful. LOL

Funny, I have looked at axes for quite a while now. I wasn't sure if my desire was an extension of knife collecting, homage to my dad who carried a Ranger Tomahawk in Vietnam or drawn from the Bad ass factor.

I figured none of them met my cost vs. utility for prepardedness so have held back.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, please continue...

Oh my, I'd forgotten about this thread. In these intervening months I've become a Barkie afficianado, having acquired the following:

Two Bravo Ones


Gameskeeper II


Little Creek

Am currently mulling the Glen Eagle II axe.


Also purchased a rugged German hatchet from a woodworking supply catalogue but can't remember the name of it.

How can one resist these beauties?


I'll never be the same again.

Welp, I've aquired a couple more barkies since my last post. I am anxiously awaiting a bravo with bocote handles. I have quite a few knives but now that I've been using convexed blades I've gotten spoiled. So tough and easy to keep sharp.
