Thanks Dennis. I like the looks of some of those and love that they're Canadian.

Grohmann makes nice knives. I have a few but they're all Nessies, not my favorite pattern. Quality blades but not my cup of tea. But I treasure them as they belonged to my dad.

I love Opinels and have several, but I discovered a problem with them. If they get wet, even a little, the wood swells and you can't open them with your fingers.


I always used to carve the handle away beside the nail nick so I could get a better grip to overcome this. Also found the more I worked them, the less often they stuck - don't know if they loosened up or it was just wishful thinking.

But carbon steel and wood in a simple design is always going to need a little TLC

Talking about a mans knife is like talking about his woman, handling her to but thats a different discussion. The knife above all things has to be fail safe, bomb proof, its the only tool that can provide all others if need be. Here is my woodsman pro from Blind Horse Knives - BHK

I've been wanting a .45-70gov lever rifle for a while now. Would you mind whittling me one? laugh

Wow, that Blind Horse knife is a beauty too! I'm getting jealous of all these nice knife pictures. I'm perfectly happy with my Mora Clipper and Cold Steel SRK from a functional standpoint, but they don't look anywhere near as nice as some of the pictures in this thread!

Ok it can provide ALMOST all others..lol

Can I whittle you in a stick bow and arrows?... wink

Thanks for the complement on the knife, took me a good many years to break down and buy it, but I cherish the fact that it is probably the last one I will ever need to buy. I'm 41, so I know that knife has 30 years or so in it.

My EDC is a Smith & Wesson HRT. I had taken to carrying it in my coat pocket when in town. Great knife, bought it at Big 5 for $12.99. A friends child was nosing in my pocket and put it back half open. I cut my finger deeply enough to have nerve damage. And that was with a factory edge. It's a fine, strong, hand filling knife which can be used with glove. But a tad too heavy.

Very nice! The Grohmann is basic and strong looking. Thanks for sharing.
