Thanks Nix, Rapidray  :salute:
For a little bonus another made in China, Enlan..nothing bad to say about this one either,  at first i thought the tip up pocket clip would annoy me as i am not used to it but in reality its totally fine, i will carry it for a while and see how i get on with it, looking good so far though

I´m a fan of wood handles too. Gerber Freeman (pear) and Vx Hunter Pro (walnut).

If i was to whittle my collection down to 3 knives the Hunter pro would be one of them, i used to have problems with the Walnut irritating my skin but even then i couldn't resist picking it up  :D now all seems fine though and have no issues, very odd

Like the Gerber  :tu:

Three knives only? In that case the Hunter Pro would have to go, and the Gerber too. I would carry a hunting knife, but it would be a traditional, i.e. blade, saw, cap lifter, and corkscrew in a two layer knife with stag handles. This is my favorite knife pattern, has been for as long as I can remember. Some SAKs come very close, but I´m thinking of handmade in Solingen, e.g. Böker, Hubertus, or Puma.

In second and third places would be a MiniChamp, preferably alox, and my +B Carver SW.

My old Wenger farmers knife, Hunter pro and probably an Explorer for me Ron  :tu:

Peacent that's good to know, it certainly seems well built and it should be good enough for the jobs i don't particularly want my Sak to do, the Ganzo will be put in my collection and the Enlan will be a user  :tu:

That´s a nice blade. I never saw it before and I wondered about the name so I looked it up on the web. A knife for both field work and defense, they say. But in my mind´s eye I saw an army of angry fishermen.  :D :like:

The Huntsmen so far, until i test it completely, seems to be the perfect SAK for me and my outdoor world. The three Spanish made knives look interesting. Will be googling them shortly.  :tu:

peeps you're putting up some really nice blade for show!  :o :like:

I have heard excellent things about Spartan Blades' fixed knives, and their coating seems to be as tough as their full tang construction  :salute:
Tell us more about your Spanish blades, Gio, being from Spain I am always interested in local blades and cutlery  :tu: :hatsoff:

Hi! Bought them all this summer in a small souvenir shop in Mallorca.
I got no boxes or info about them but I believe that this is the maker:

 :iagree:
they appear to be made in a small family business since 1945 in the city of Albacete, one of the old cutlery centers of Spain back in the day like Toledo  :tu:
