Bearing in mind I'm in the UK, are you all using your fixed blades for sporting reasons(hunting,fishing etc) or is it work related,and if so in what field and for what? :popcorn:

Post by: ducttapetech on March 21, 2014, 11:15:09 AM
I use mine for all of the above. I am carrying mine now at work and use for the same cutting tasks that I would use any other blade for. Only deference its and fixed blade instead of a folder. And a tad safer. It won't fold on you.

I recently started carrying a small fixed blade on a daily basis is addition to a SAK just to see how it goes and how useful it is. So far so good. I rotate between an Izula, a Benchmade Activator and KnifeKits.com knife I put together a few years ago thats about the same profile as the Izula. All are carried in a KSF Pocono pocket sheath. Today is the Activators turn. :D

Sorry only just saw your post , haven't visited this thread for awhile.

It's a Svord Rabbiters Knife from New Zealand
When Svord first started making knives to sell , a lot of years ago now , they offered what they called a Rabbiters Kit Knife .
You had to fit and shape the handle scales yourself and finish the blade which was very roughly done .
It cost next to nothing and seeing as though I had no money back then it was all I could afford .
This knife has been through a lot with me , and only God knows how many Animals its processed , because I've forgotten .
It holds a wickedly sharp edge , and although Svord maintain that their production methods haven't changed its much better steel than the more modern Svords of which I own a couple . They are good , but this is better .

I hardly ever carry a fixed blade . High quality folders and SAK's do 98% of my cutting . If hiking / hunting/fishing /camping , I carry a G/B hatchet and a small FB in my pack ( along with a folding saw ) .

Recently I have purchased Magnum Compact Rescue and Magnum Rescue Knife and I like both of them. Liner lock is present in the two of them and the special feature is the handles are made up of black anodized aluminium and I think it is ideal as money clip. The aluminium scales makes it more styling.

Honestly, this knife fits my hand the best of any I have owned. Opinel comes close, but I really dig the barrel shaped handle, not to mention the blade profile. Up the hardness if the steel, make it fully flat ground, and possibly full tanged, and that might just be my perfect fixed blade.

Doesn't necessarily have to be a Mora. The profile and ergos of the knife are what's important to me

Been carrying this Geilo stainless work knife today. The Mora Classic rusted so much in  the saltwater conditions I did not have the heart to continue using it.
I bought this one for aprox $5 in a hardware store. It has a combined plastic and rubber handle wich is nice in wet conditions. Its a fake scandi though as it has a second bevel.

Cold Steel Roach Belly (love that knife) was used tonight to harvest a couple of leeks ...

(http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=54888.0;attach=131513;image)

... which I'm quite impressed with actually considering they were grown in pots and the seeds weren't sown till April. The edible part of one (once trimmed) was 18" and the other was 20".

It was then the job of a Cold Steel Bushman (for no other reason than what the heck  :D) to chop 'em up ready for blanching and freezing. Those two on their own have given me enough leek for 2 full 3 litre loads in my slowcooker for leek and potato soup. Although I'm actually going to use Jersualem Artichokes in lieu of 50% of the potato ..... but the ones I harvested today are not fully developed, hence having to freeze the leeks  :-\

Stew sent me this Mora, thanks again Stew, so I have been carrying it today and giving it a little work out.
So far, it seems to be holding up just fine. Even after batoning some wood, making feathersticks and cutting some rope, it is still shaving sharp.

Nothing today as I'm back in an urban setting, but carried a Cold Steel Finn Bear for a couple of days while I was delivering the boat to it's new home.

The grip on that proved very effective with cold wet hands, especially when working underwater to clear a fouled prop - first time was a heavy duty polythene bag, then a couple of times later in the trip with heavy weeds. The construction also lends itself to being easilly cleaned to make sure I get rid of all the nasties lurking in the water.

Add to this the high ride position and slim profile of the sheath for reduced risk of snagging, plus the ease of sharpening if the blade edge contact the prop or propshaft (sometimes unavoidable), and it's an excellent choice of knife for that kind of activity. The price also means you aren't too worried about losing it in the murky depths if you do let it go. The lack of serrations isn't really an issue either, even on wet polyprop lines, if you use it the right way

It's really a three finger grip, but lends itself to a multitude of other grips, including the blade "choke" one, fingers on blade.
It's a tough and versatile little knife that Candiru.

I don't often need a sheath knife, but when I do, this one fits the bill. I got my first Buck 102 in 1969, and by 1999 it was worn down to a sharpened toothpick. My better half bought this one in 2000, and it's cleaned a lot of fish and done a lot of camp jobs since. It goes on my hip when we go woods rambling.

Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: jacktrades on January 02, 2015, 08:59:32 PM
I played with the niolox hest, and i still prefer the one with carbon steel.
But yeah, they should add the option with micarta.
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: styx on January 02, 2015, 09:21:15 PM
what about the sleipner version? I'm not a fan of 1095 or ESEE
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: jacktrades on January 02, 2015, 09:34:07 PM
Haven't tried that one, but heard good things about it.
But the niolox is also good, its just that i prefer carbon steel, and the design of the original hest to the new one made by Lionsteel.
I have the niolox in the folder, it's a good steel.
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: styx on January 02, 2015, 10:15:01 PM
What are the differences between the ESEE and Lionsteel version?
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: jacktrades on January 02, 2015, 11:34:53 PM
There is a hex drive in the tang of the Lionsteel version, versus the small hole on the Rowen made, the jimping is different, as the Lionsteel has wire strippers, and the "pry bar is at a different angle, and with one hole instead of two. Plus the grind seems slightly thicker on the Lionsteel version.
Also the Rowen HEST has a deeper choil, for breaking wires, and it comes with a more compact Kydex sheath.
And it's not RAT/ESEE anymore, just DPX Gear.
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: styx on January 02, 2015, 11:58:48 PM
You're telling me it's not connected to ESEE any more? I thought those were leftovers before ESEE and Rober Young Pelton went their separate ways
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: jacktrades on January 03, 2015, 12:38:44 AM
It's not connected any more. There was the first HEST, which was the RAT one, then as RAT became ESEE, it got a new engraving, and that was it.
Pelton separated from ESEE, and ESEE from Pelton, and he started DPX gear, and moved the HEST production to Ontario knife, then to Lionsteel with the folder, and so on.
And then he went back to the actual makers, Rowen, so now there is the Rowen Hest sold as the original. Just DPX.

I was actually there when the split happened and when RYP went with Ontario and Lionsteel. But didn't know he went back to Rowen, in a way at least.

Oh and nice one Dale  :drink:

Just got in a surprising nice little neck/pocket knife:

at just 4 3/4" overall, this is not a big knife.  Small enough in fact that I can comfortably put it in my trouser's pocket.  I'll be writing a little more once I've had a chance to put it to use a bit.

(http://lghttp.29118.nexcesscdn.net/80C119/mage/media/catalog/product/cache/3/image/512x512/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/MTech/203170A.jpg)

at just 4 3/4" overall, this is not a big knife.  Small enough in fact that I can comfortably put it in my trouser's pocket.  I'll be writing a little more once I've had a chance to put it to use a bit.

WOOHOOO!!!!

Cheers gents.  :cheers:  It is sold as, and does appear to be, G10 scales.  Also the sheath does seem to be Kydex, albeit rather thin.  A shot or two showing it next to a Vic Executive for scale.  You'll notice I've stuck a quick fob on the back as well.

I don't remember if I ever posted this one, I really don't have to many fixed blades, but the only one that ever gets carried doesn't really have a blade, well to cut yourself.. But it does have a screwdriver tip, couple hex holes, but more importantly a bottle opener and seatbelt cutter! The newer one of these have a mini ruler along the back, but a mini like 2"? This is an old pic, now it sits right on the shoulder cross strap, a perfect spot to easily grab to pop the beer, or if someone's seatbelt won't give! Not a bad little carry for I think $2-$4 when I got it providing the seatbelt cutter works, just hope I'll never have to try it for that reason..

Amici,
I almost always carry underneath my shirt an original Alan Folts made spear point minimalist with black G10 handles and in a matching kydex sheath.

As been posted here over the years, if those of you have the want or the need to carry an extreme lightweight fixed blade as a secondary or even as a primary, you can't go wrong with an Alan Folts Minimalist..

Comes in handy, let me tell yah...


Cheers,
Serge

I certainly will. I'm pretty excited about it to be honest, especially given that it only set me back 7 bucks. Definitely the sharpest Gerber blade I've ever had out of the box, and I like the fact that it's full tang, and yet a fairly agile blade design.

I almost always carry underneath my shirt an original Alan Folts made spear point minimalist with black G10 handles and in a matching kydex sheath.

Hear, hear!!

I've carried one of the CRKT/Folts Minimalist in the warncliffe pattern for over a year now. Easiest thing in the world to resharpen and it's a little big knife! But it has been spending the past few days at home- I came across the clip point (bowie) version at Lowe's over the weekend. For $20. I was going to buy one of those Camilus Phenoms that I've heard people chattering about, but sudden change in plans.

A little bigger, the jimping is a little more friendly to wet/cold skin. I think the fit isn't quite as good, the scales are under sized, literally only the thickness of a peice of paper, but I'm not sure if it going to create hot spots under heavy work. The funny thing, and I've confirmed this with CRKT is that they come with a sheath origionally designed for the tanto model- it is a very tight and secure fit, but being GFN, I'm not sure if it won't become an issue down the road as the center of the belly is going into the seam of the sheath. The belt loop is the same design as for the warncliff, but I think it works MUCH better here.

I bought the other one they had tonight. That's going into my PSK to replace the little Aitor that has been in there for the past few years.

Took the little Moment with me into the woods again today. A little more testing today, despite its small stature I used it for some batoning and chopping as best I could. I was impressed to be quite honest, I'm enjoying it.

How does it perform compared to the Mora?

I completely missed this post :think:, my bad. I plan on doing a head to head test of the two soon actually. I haven't gotten to really use either all that much, but the Mora definitely fits in the hand better. The edge on the moment is fairly thin, so I can't see it being as durable as the Mora either. But it's likely to be my bait/other unappealing jobs knife, so I'm not concerned about it's well being.

Over-do post, I'm sorry Grathr. Took the Mora out with me on a hike/bike and stopped to play around with it for a while. It's a comfortable, nimble, solid blade. But none of this is news to you guys. The last picture is a comparison between the Mora and the Moment for a little bit of chopping action. Mora is on the left, and as you can see won it quite easily and with less effort. The Mora is definitely the better knife out of the two, but I do enjoy both. Thank you again buddy, I'll be doing a head to head with the two of them soon I hope.

I love fixed blades... Have a few folders. But got rid of most of em. :)

I made one exception, the scales on the CRTK Endorser were just too nice for me to resist.

Other than that, I just glad fixed blades are cheaper in general.
I also tell myself that as soon as I have:
BK2
BK9
Tops DART
Tops Prather War Bowie
Tops Tahoma field knive
.........I'll only buy customs from then on.  :facepalm:

Moras are da bomb!

Too true.....
That fact causes me distress - I have a few knives, not all big, but I like to use the cheap-as-chips green Mora Companion the most.

Taking a trip back 10 years and making use of this knife today.  It's a Cudeman with olive wood scales and 440 steel blade.  This was my first 'bushcraft' type knife and, I have to admit, I'd forgotten how good it is.  A lot of folks (myself included) got very worked up about 'mere' 440, but this knife takes a fantastically sharp edge and holds it pretty well.  The sheath isn't my favourite, but it does the job well enough.  Might have to find myself a bit of leather and make a replacement.

Nice one Paul. I like my MOD knife, but hate the leather sheath. Can't understand why they put the keep loop so far up the handles. I don't like how far the knife can slide out with the loop closed.

Ah I see. Tactical prybar then :(

Yeah, I need to find someone who likes that kind of thing and trade it off.

Is that the HEST? I like the look of it, but have told myself no more carbon steel blades  ::) I have way too many that don't get enough use as it is  :whistle:

Yes it is. Looks good, feels good too. I go about things differently though and it didn't fit in with that method.

Good news is it's approx halfway across the world now and should be arriving at a new home in the next week.

I know exactly what you mean about not being your style. I've had a few knives and tools which were perfectly fine, but just weren't for me. I've had others too such as the Roselli axe, that I'm glad I persevered with. Glad it's found a new home  :cheers:

Taking a trip back 10 years and making use of this knife today.  It's a Cudeman with olive wood scales and 440 steel blade.  This was my first 'bushcraft' type knife and, I have to admit, I'd forgotten how good it is.  A lot of folks (myself included) got very worked up about 'mere' 440, but this knife takes a fantastically sharp edge and holds it pretty well.  The sheath isn't my favourite, but it does the job well enough.  Might have to find myself a bit of leather and make a replacement.

(http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m37/gareth_hunt/DSCF3550.jpg)

I do like that knife. A good reliable companion by the looks of it. I don't mind the blade steel at all, and would rather have that than one of the supersteels  :tu:

Cheers buddy.  While I'm certainty no super sharpener, I'm not bad at it either.  This takes as good an edge as almost anything else I own.  Geometry has a much to do with this as the steel though.  So while my Mora is sharper, it's also a lot thinner.

I've been eyeing up one of those myself. Even got as far as adding it to the cart this evening (then doing a mental count of how many other knives I own and deleting it again). I have been through the add and delete process with this and three other knives several times over the past few weeks  ::) Thankfully the Boker TUF still hasn't lost it's novelty factor with me yet, so I'm not suffering the yearning too badly

That RR is another one to bring to the meet Gareth :pok:

 I always marvel how "lively" a Trail Guide is despite it's size...must be in the balance because I've had other big knives that didn't "float" this way. Even with my RA, it's a joy to wield. They got it right!  I hope a re-handle doesn't screw up the balance.

I only begun researching in earnest again but it's probably will be beyond my ability to do it properly myself....and the RA is really weakening my hands. Downloading all the "do it yourself" posts/pics to see what's under the handle and since it's a convexed first gen, I don't want to screw it up. Have to think about the handle shape as well...I like the original contour really well.

Will probably end up using this guy....(he's done a bunch)

Is that the San Mai version or the 01 carbon?  Inquiring minds would like to know.

How has your knife held up? Do you like the steel?

It's the (01) Carbon V version and still very trail worthy. There is no tang shift/ movement in the handle but if you squeeze on the flats (in the center), the Kraton kinda snaps back up from the tang...it's infinitesimal, but it's there. It used to feel solid but I oiled the ricasso and some went down into the handle causing the tiny separation.  I've owned it about 5 years and chopped limbs, weeds, cut heavy cardboard etc and it's worked great. Had to get up to speed on the convex edge but finally got the hang of it (sort of). It stayed sharp so long that it didn't need sharpening for a couple of years. If I had my druthers, it would have a flat ground edge.

The previous owner was an idiot who didn't take care of it but despite that, it's still an amazing knife.

Complete fail. No good at even simple jobs like cutting up cardboard boxes. It gets relegated to the ruck as a last resort food prep knife

As a survival knife Id say that its better than nothing, but my Farmer would be way better.
As a EDC knife, its not too bad. Small, light weight, innocent looking. Great for opening packages and small cutting tasks.

Thanks, have you got a 17, or do you just want the same knife in a drop point? Either way, I prefer the 17, but I like it so much I'm sure I'm gonna get a16

Too funny, I'm usually the opposite. In theory a drop point is superior, but damn the 17 just looked right. I wasn't even going to get it, I was getting the 5 and 15 because of discontinuation, and this one popped out enough to join 'em. While I think the 15 is likely superior for my uses, the 17 feels like it was made for me.

It's either going to be a 7 or a 10, the tip on the 7 looks a touch thin. Though I don't need another knife in this size range. Guess than means the 9 makes the most sense. Hmmm

That doesn't look so bad. And really, it's at least as strong as my 17. The swedge is just much longer than the 10, which looks awesomely stout. Nice 7, can I see the whole of it?

Is the blade the same as the 14/24? If so, I love it on my 24. Imagine it's a treat in 50-100B! Also love the scales!

Checking camelcamelcamel makes me sad, all the becomes have gone up over the last few years... Don't know whether to wait on a bk9 deal or to pull the trigger sooner  :P

I also need a remora, but I'm wondering if price will drop if/when there's a cro-van version? I'm gonna need a few...
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: David on August 31, 2015, 08:14:53 PM
The blade is the same. Not every one likes the handle on the 11 so there was a collaberation to use the handle from the ESEE Izula on the 11 to become the 14. The finger groove was the main reason I never bought an 11 many years ago. As I dont normally like a handle that locks your grip in place. But since playing with it I like the fact that because of the blade to handle ratio with the short handle on the 11 that the knife is basically locked into place and doesnt move around while using. People with smaller hands may not have this problem. I find it helps me. YMMV       :D

The finger groove was the main reason I never bought an 11 many years ago. As I dont normally like a handle that locks your grip in place. But since playing with it I like the fact that because of the blade to handle ratio with the short handle on the 11 that the knife is basically locked into place and doesnt move around while using. People with smaller hands may not have this problem. I find it helps me. YMMV       :D

U was actually afraid my hands would be too big, and wanted the versatile grip in case haha. Either way, I find I can deal with most handles. Cool to know it's the same, it really is a lovely little blade. I convexed my 24 and it's a wonderful slicer now

Toting the Blackjack Rio Grande Bowie around the farm today....hope to chop something with it.   :tu:

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz256/SAKGuy/BJWM%20and%20Farmer_zpsz8gp0jcj.jpg)

The Bowie is showing of it's mythical SEKI コブラスピリット (Cobra Spirit) finish......which means the guy on the buffer had too much Snake Wine at lunch...   :D  Not noticeable in reg light but in the oblique morning sunlight, it bristles with life!!!!  :cheers:

This is rapidly becoming one of my fav fixed blades. Was so tired of smurfing around with the convex edge that I carefully re-profiled the edge with carbide and diamond /files till it was flat enough to stone. Finished it off on diamond stones and a few passes on the green strop to smooth the edge...it's scary sharp from tip to heel now. Took about a week of work but it was worth it and since I went slow, it looks great too

Thanks guys!!!! Here's best pic I can get of the edge (8X)...you can see my bumbing convex attempts above the new bevel. Visually it's a stark contrast but the surface is actually a smooth transition out to the edge. The front 3 inches required the most attention because the old grind was the thickest there.....

Mostly freehand with the knife in one hand, the stone in the other, it's all intuitive so I have no idea but I can usually "feel" when its "right" before checking the results....kinda hard to explain.

With the DC-4, sometimes I will set the angle based on the tips of my fingers sticking over the stone....sometimes not.  Based on which knife it is, I just know how to do it....not a guess.  On the flipside...if tired/sick or in pain, I can't hardly sharpen at all....my "sharpening sense" is messed up I guess.....

My Cold Steel Kobun has been pulling a lot of kitchen duty for the last few months... does that count?  I know I haven't really been carrying it, but then for most of the last couple of months I've been housebound so it's never been far away....

Desperado...favorite Cold Steel Fixed Blade so far! But a hell to sharpen

Now starts that time of the year where I can carry fixed blade knives comfortably. Love it!

After I got use to the thickness of the blade it did seem to me the extra heft of the knife did help on some downward cuts. But when doing finer detailed cuts my hand fatigued perty fast from that extra weight.

It’s a little sharper than it was but the tip still looks like a saw  :facepalm:
Used it to re-handle this chunky axe

That’s a very strange axe head, it’s very pitted from rust but seems a bit like stainless  :shrug:
The axe is too thick for good cutting maybe it was made as a metal working tool  :think:
I think it’s got a future as a throwing axe  :D

Trying to see how a Muela Diving FB will fit into the EDC. Today was the first day, and the saw proved useful at least two times this morning.

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/IMG_20160404_102708_162_zpsv1kirntw.jpg)

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/IMG_20160404_102702_159_zps31p7lrs3.jpg)

It weighs nothing, carries easily and it's nice and secure in the sheath.

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/IMG_20160404_102756_837_zpsh0eitemb.jpg)

I got really wet: today was humid, rainy and I was working around hoses, water jets and beams, etc. That's the reason I used it and carried it, to experiment.

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/IMG_20160404_102819_193_zpsndzcirht.jpg)

Without any wiping and drying, it was rust free at the end of the day. It's now EDC Approved for me!

Walnut I believe. Made from a gentleman that goes by "tommy the who", highly recommended.

This is enough of a steak knife for me,

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/CAM03155_zpszn7nxsnw.jpg)

and I think a bit lighter than a BK5, which makes it more likely to be on my person when those steaks decide to attack!

Post by: magentus on October 14, 2016, 04:23:16 PM
Initial thoughts are 'Where's the damn awl? What's the point of a knife with no awl?'

It's a good size, the Micarta scales are comfy, nice sheath. I will test it over the weekend - I have a Gandalf stick to finish off, and I'll report my findings.

Some fine looking blades.  I cant seem to figure out how to resize pics in Sierra  :facepalm:.  I also have zero patience.

I agree. Been thinking a long time about an ESEE-3, and I really like the look of that blade/handle combo.  :drool:

Its a great knife! One of my favorite fixed blades and a great slicer even with the coating. The one thing I will say is that the micarta handle scales will darken as soon as you touch them. They are extremely responsive to any type of oil from your hands so dont expect to keep that cool contrasting desert tan look on the scales. But hey, looks come second to functionality, and it is a great little fixed blade. I wouldnt hesitate to get another one if i needed to.

The first picture is not mine, but is how it looked when I got it, the second is it now, and I cleaned the scales back to the original color last month and yes, the difference really is that drastic. I only carry it maybe twice a week too, although I am starting to more.

And just to clarify, I personally dont worry about the scales very much but I know some do, and the fact that they are so absorbent makes me wonder if they will cause the knife to rust with any moisture that they have built up, but I haven't had any issues with it, probably because of the great coating.

Is it the tactical look that puts you off Styx? I don't like tactical usually and have thought long and hard about removing the coating, but decided to live with it for a while seeing as this is by far and away the most expensive knife I have ever owned. The sheath system I can do without as it's plastic and even more tactical than the knife! The paperwork that came with it had instructions for attaching it to your webbing rig - thankfully I don't have to do that. Once it has a leather sheath I will decide where to go next - I can't see myself replacing this one.

I have an inexpensive ( $20 US ) sharpshooter sheath that works with the RAT3.  It certainly lessens the aggressive look to the knife.  I also attach a brightly colored lanyard to it as well.  I can detach the lanyard as well so I am not committed to it. 

I also affixed a leather belt attachment to my plastic sheath as the plastic sheath was not suited for how I like to carry the knife.  I'll make a more permanent one as I feel this one out. 

The size and shape of the knife as well as the flat grind makes this knife ( coating included ) one of my favorites and regularly carried fixed blades.

Just a heads up, it has the same grind angel throughout the whole blade, just towards the  end the blade get thinner.  Which is nice for gutting or making thin cuts. Does not seem to infect the integrity of the blade.

That was a removal pic. Was on my way to the shower if you must know. Then I went and chased butterflies, naked.
1. TMI  :D 2. Did you catch any?

I love this one. If I was to raid your house and only be able to get away with one object before being eaten by your dog/shot/sliced to pieces by a thousand knives,SAK's,MT's, it would be a toss up between that one and your FrankenGerber.  :salute:

I'll tell Rocko to keep an eye out for ya eh.

Quite honestly I was thinking I have too many machetes etc
I am thinking I should keep just this one and the British army machete that needs a handle,
This has quite a thick blade so I'm thinking of it as a Golock, I've wanted one since I saw your condor at the meet (think it was yours or Marks?  :think: )

You can play with this one if you make it to the meet  :salute:

I've got a Condor Pack Golok that you'll have seen at a Meet or two.  Oddly, I don't think mine is good enough as a machete, due to it being too thick in the blade and too expensive (making me not want to thwack it into stones and random bits of metal when clearing).

It's about 12 cm (4 3/4 in.) with 3,5 cm (1 3/8 in.) blade. Made from a puukko blade blank.  :D

I think Paul Sellers is a huge advocate of inexpensive carving tools (or better said woodworking) if you can sharpen 'em.

Technically I am carrying both of these because the guys at work wanted to see them. My boss was none to happy that I had the Chris Caine here though when he saw me putting it away in my desk drawer.

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4217/34908291163_17cc957ee8_o.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/VbJ7M2)


The conversation was something like this...

BOSS: why have you brought that weapon to work?
ME: It's not a weapon, it's a tool, and I brought it to show my guys as they were curious about it when I told them about it.
BOSS: Well it could be used as a weapon.
ME: So could my walking stick or the screwdriver and metal pens on my desk.
BOSS: Well you could have my head off with that.
ME: If I hit you hard enough with my walking stick I bet I could achieve that.
BOSS: Well yes, mumbled something I couldn't make out. Just go lock it in your car or something.
ME: OK, will do.

He's an electrical engineer with at least 30+ years experience. I was surprised he took such a narrow minded view of it and instantly saw it as only a weapon.

Yes I added a thumb groove to make it easier to control for carving, it has the stainless fastener upgrade and stippled scales sanded smooth to improve the grip.  I stripped the black coating and the tang area under the handle was painted with a clear tough polyurethane wheel paint to prevent rust.  I might sell this knife actually because I rarely use it these days, I was using it for backyard gardening and firewood stuff but really a saw or a axe works better.

Question for you all.
I've been mulling getting either an ESEE 3 or RAT 3 or both (probably the ESEE). My only concern is that my carry method won't work with this size of knife. I like carrying my fixed blades in my right front pocket and I typically wear five pocket jeans. Does anyone happen to have either of those knives and is willing to throw it in their pocket to see if it'll fit without too much handle sticking out of the pocket?

I've carried a Becker BK11, BK14, and an ESEE Izula in this way quite a lot and love the method and the capabilities of a fixed blade. I'm just concerned that it'll be too long while in its sheath.

Yes and no......
 
When I bought these I was heavily under the influence of YT and feeling an intense feeling of impending doom, demanding fully equipped BoB's etc etc etc  :facepalm:

Never expected all this to mutate into making knives.

I do need money for a proper belt grinder, but that's a lot of cash.  In the meantime I have about 7 production knives that are some of the most expensive, and more importantly completely unused.......

I have a small bucket full of Moras, quite a few chinese folders, these were pocket change relatively speaking, and not a cause for buyer's remorse. My Gecko custom, the Puma White Hunter and a few others were also expensive, but they're collectible knives and my pride & joy.

The users hanging around in the closet feels wrong however......... :facepalm:

Why I'm hesitant to sell is simply the fact that I'm loosing money on basically NIB knives, and knowing how life goes they money from these knives will be gobbled up by some emergency instead of being saved for the grinder  :facepalm:

I loved that design, as the Minimalist Wharncliffe was sometimes too short for me, but never could get a SPEW anywhere.
It looks very nice, and ergonomic. How do you like yours?

Recently picked up a CRKT Hunt n Fisch. Did not much care for the horizontal sheath, but I had a Carl Thomas Jr, Water Buffalo hide, vertical sheath for another knife which fits fine. Great little knife that fits well in the hand and came very sharp. Seems to hold an edge pretty well when whittling wood.

as in the blade profile looks familiar yet distant, the handle looks like it could be mangificantly comfortable or as slipperly as owl snot
in other words it is a knife I'd gladly try and by the looks of it either wouldn't give it up ever or would yell that ain't for me in 30 seconds

I got the above knife and sheath from Koyote about....ten or eleven years ago.

He made the knife, the sheath was made (I believe) by his buddy Koyote Girl. The sheath is a stout leather, probably 8-9oz. The belt loop is adjustable so it can fit different belts, even MOLLE gear.  It can be worn high or as a 'dangler' (Useful for the wearing a back pack with a waist belt.  :tu:)

The knife 'snaps' into the sheath and is held quite firmly.

If you wanted to find fault with the sheath, it's a bit heavy and overbuilt......but that's not a problem for me.

(I better grab a shot of the back of the sheath. Hold on.....)

I think that covers the sheath...it's been excellent for me.

Now, onto the knife. This is my first Koyote and still a favorite:

(https://i.imgur.com/SJyeRVT.jpg)



I'm not sure what to call this knife.  :think:  A drop-point Kephart?

I think of this knife as being a small knife, so I'm always surprised to realize the blade is about 4.5" long.

The pinned scales are made of Osage Orange (a native American hardwood known for it's toughness.).

 At first, the handle seemed short to me. I mentioned this perception to Koyote. He explained that he designed it with a shorter handle that one could 'palm' when using. Now, I have some XL hands, so I was a bit skeptical. I got this knife to be a woods-bumming knife, camping & hiking knife, I thought I'd want a big handle. A handle I could use to really get some work done.

However, time and experience has proven him to be the wise one here. The handle is big enough to get a full, four-finger grip when holding it with a 'Hammer Grip'. In a 'Saber Grip' (thumb up on spine), the pommel ends up being tucked right under that fat muscle of my thumb. This is the same when using a 'Pointing Grip' (index finger on top of spine). As a result, the knife is really secure and well aligned for a push cut, slicing cut, or draw cut. I'm not sure how important a handle is for a 'Chest-lever Cut', but this handle works really well for that.

The handle is slightly contoured which also aids in providing a really solid grip. Gripping this handle, your hand isn't going anywhere.

At some point, I soaked the handle in linseed oil. As in 'dunked it in linseed oil for a few days'.

After that, the handle has had a slightly 'tacky' feel. It is very smooth, but 'grippy'. I actually worried fo ra I hike that I had screwed up by doing this; I worried that the handle would collect dust or dirt. But this has not proven to be a problem. So, in the end, I'm glad I tried that.

I had a lanyard on the handle for a while, but it interfered a bit with 'palming' the handle comfortably, and I removed that. Good move there.

So that's the handle covered....unless there are other questions....  :dunno:

As to the blade on the Koyote "Drop Point Kephart", I think Koyote told me he made it from an old saw blade, an he believed it to be L6 steel . Sounds right.

The stock is about 1/8" thick, It has a convex edge, and I'd be tempted to cal it a 'Scandivex' edge, as long as no one get's his or her feelings hurt here.

I don't know how Koyote achieved that spalting on the blade. I like it aesthetically. I was worried that stuff like peanut butter would be hard to clean off, but that hasn't been an issue.

Regardless of the steel, the knife takes a wicked sharp edge. Edge retention is good, but not astounding by modern "super-steel" standards. But I don't care, it sharpens easily and can be touched up in the field if needed.

The blade geometry in timeless and fairly instinctive to use. The edge does a good job splitting wood as well as slicing foods. I've batonned this knife through small-diameter wood with ease.

I cold see where one might want a slightly thicker blade in a woods knife, but, really I've had no issues using this and it has proven tone reliable and capable. I suppose one advantage of the thinner blade is that the knife is relatively light weight for a 4.5" knife.

I guess that about does it for my insights. If I think of anything else, I'll add some more later.   :cheers:

I guess that about does it for my insights. If I think of anything else, I'll add some more later.   :cheers:

To be fair the more I learn from experience and read, the more I'm convinced that a sub 5" blade very rarely benefits from being thicker than 1/8th.

The handle would be my first concern as well. Not so much that is looks small since the reality of that can only be felt in hand* but rather that is looks slick. Guess that whole experiment with linseed oil at least added to the shiny factor.
The blade profile reminds me a bit of a chef knife. Maybe something that would easily be seen in a Green river catalogue.

*what I mean by this can perfectly be explained by 2 Spyders - Sage and Para2. Sage has more width and while it is an excellent knife I find it to be quite awkward in most use due to the handle feeling small. Para2 on the other hand doesn't cause any issues for me
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: Nix on December 28, 2018, 05:56:46 PM
Yes, the linseed oil did give the handle a shiny appearance. The handle is in no way slick. Smooth, yes. Shiny, yes. It is still quite 'grippy', though.

I agree. I don't think a knife blade really needs to be over 1/8" - 3/16" in this size range. The exception being in a very wide blade, where a thicker stock will allow for different primary edge geometries.

For comparison, let me put up a photo contrasting a Treeman Pathfinder with the Koyote (the Treeman has a lot of odd angles and it's hard to get a clean shot):

(https://i.imgur.com/20Ra5pt.jpg)

The Treeman is made with a massive 1/4" thick O-1 tool steel stock!  Because of that, the blade has a deep hollow-grind. It does give the knife a razor's edge, but it also makes it a less clean slicer. The thick blade stock give this knife a very heft and solid feel. It feels indestructible. And that come with a price: the Koyote comes in at 127 grams on my kitchen scale, the Treeman is a big 317 grams. (For reference: my Vic Explorer and Wenger Esquire together weigh 127 grams.)

Here's a better shot of the Treeman:

(https://i.imgur.com/nGyxdNu.jpg)


It's a beast. 

As you can see, the handle is highly contoured with elements of an integral guard and pommel. Your hand is really locked in when holding it with a hammer grip. While the handle looks like it would limit other grips, I have to give Treeman some credit for creating a fairly versatile handle. Saber grip feels good to me, and my thumb lands quite naturally on the big 1/4 flat of the spine, before the false edge up front.

The big choil does let one choke up safely, but I don't think I could do so with gloves. Using a pointing grip (index finger on spine) is less comfortable. The swell at the pommel creates a small point of discomfort and the lanyard attachment loop digs into my palm. That contrasts sharply (bad pun) with Koyote's handle where the rounded pommel fits comfortably in the palm.

The other big problem with this handle comes up when trying to use a chest-lever grip. It's possible do use this grip, but really awkward with bits of the guard and pommel digging into the hand. The Koyote is fantastic when used with the chest-lever grip. I think the Treeman wold start to feel very uncomfortable if one were using this grip to make a large number of cuts, e.g. making six tent stakes.

I think it's interesting to contrast these two knives, because they are both described as "bushcraft" knives. Obviously with very different emphases. While the Treeman is a very versatile knife, I have to give the "Bushcraft" prize to the Koyote design. As a "Hunting" knife, the Treeman has some advantages.....but then there is that weight.....

Since I pulled out the Treeman, I'll be carrying it today. With a stiff belt and the kidex sheath, the Treeman actually carries surprisingly well, despite the weight.

Post by: styx on December 28, 2018, 06:26:10 PM
Well 2 very popular and very thick designs are the Becker BK-2 and ESEE-5 which are marketed in a similar fashion to one another. They certainly have fans, but for me it still seems like a good bit of sacrifice to get that feeling of imperviousness.

To be fair, maybe I'm missing something. Never had to baton much and even when I did it wasn't some super hard and knotty wood (although I have a firm belief that most people exaggerate the need for battoning and just how tough the local wood is). So I'd rather use that extra weight somewhere else.
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: Nix on December 28, 2018, 06:43:21 PM
 :iagree:

Although I do like to be able to baton a knife to process wood. And axe is a better choice, but I don't carry an axe much. And I agree that the absolute need to baton is probably overrated. Still, if the available wood is snow covered or wet, it is very nice to be able to split open some wood to get to dry-stuff when making a fire. Here, the pines grow up in the wind and twist, makes this wood a pain to spit cleanly. And it is very knotty. But, again, I've found that judicious use of a knife with reasonable sized wood isn't a problem for most knives.

I've used that 1/8" Koyote to baton reasonably sized wood without a problem.

I have a BK-2. I'm not a fan. It's too chunky, and I think that chunky quality reduces it's overall utility. And it just plain weighs too much. I often think of getting rid of it......but it makes for a nice "sharp pry-bar". It does take a hair-shaving edge as well.

The handle on the BK-2 (same as the BK-7, 5, and 9) is pretty comfortable for me, although I prefer the micarta scales. The plastic scales feel too slippery to me.
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: styx on December 28, 2018, 08:54:59 PM
well you never know when you'll need to baton a really nasty piece of wood so having that BK-2 handy is a smart move. plus batoning might be safer. a lot of people aren't that used to an axe, being tired, cold, might be later in the day are all factors to consider. plus axes are heavy as well.

even without an axe, in my head there is some choice to be made. now this comes from 0 practical experience and is pure theory, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. if you had access to enough wood that is properly sized to baton it and there is a realistic need for doing so (like the wood being wet), wouldn't it make more sense to baton the straighter pieces with fewer knots and leave the gnarly pieces to just burn as larger fuel?

here we've never needed an abundance of small pieces, just enough to get the fire going enough to accept the larger fuel. that usually meant having 3 or 4 forearm sized pieces busted to thirds or quarters and 1 or 2 pieces to smaller chunks, so the theory above might make sense or i might be talking out of my smurf
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: Nix on December 28, 2018, 09:08:35 PM
In my experience, once the fire gets going, you don't really need to baton. Just put wood on the fire, although, split woods catches fire and burns more easily.

Batonning for me has been most helpful when trying to get a fire started by exposing inner, dry wood that can be shaved into tinder and kindling. If you have enough dry tinder and kindling available, you don't even need to baton. Sometimes the 'feather stick' method is perfect, although, here in the mountain west, straight grained wood that is easy to turn into a bundle of perfect curls isn't easy to come by.

A few weeks ago I was staying at Forrest Service cabin. There was some cut firewood available, but no kindling. And the ground was covered in 6"-36"  of snow.  I used a big "Canadian Camp Knife" to baton actual logs into kindling. Then broke some kindling down into fine pieces of wood to use as tinder. Worked perfectly and, even slightly frozen, I got a good blaze going in a matter of minutes.

My hunting buddy had not seen this technique. He wasn't sure e could have gotten a fire going. He was impressed enough by the technique that he bought himself a big camp knife after we got back.  :tu:

Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: styx on December 28, 2018, 10:12:41 PM
BRKT Canadian camp knife? that is a thing of beauty. But that is also a larger knife that really should be able to handle such use. You ever tried Fallkniven knives? I'm curious what you think of their performance and handles since your enviroment is not really forgiving and you've got big hands

Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: Nix on December 28, 2018, 10:43:48 PM
I really like everything I know about Fallkniven.

After a bit of research and consideration, I got this S1:

(https://i.imgur.com/1EtZd7S.jpg)



OK, so it looks a bit funny.......

While I love the Fallkniven S1, I tend to not carry it. The handle is a bit small for me. So....I added some camo grip tape. This made a big difference for the way the knife feels. But I'm not sure it's a durable solution for me. (I could make it durable by soaking it in superglue, but that is a one-way ticket.) Since adding the grip tape, I have only used the S1 for relatively light tasks.

Still, the handle feels better to me.

The sheath is some kind of plastic. It is well designed and very sensible....but I found it could be noisy. Like loud noisy. So I added a bit of tape to the sheath. This seems to help, but then I stopped carrying the knife. I took it on some motorcycle camping trips, but never really used it.

Aside from the edge being a bit polished, it looks nearly new:

(https://i.imgur.com/cnkBd4I.jpg)


So here's a funny thing. I've got a knife I really like, but one that doesn't really suit me. A knife that gets left at home more often than it gets to go out on the road. For a while I thought it might serve as an emergency kit knife.....but it doesn't even do that.

* sheesh! * Just checked the edge and it's sharp! Hair cutting sharp!

I'm at a loss as to an opinion about this knife. One the one hand, I think it is the best thing since Excalibur, on the other hand.....it doesn't really suit me.

If you want to give it a tryout, Styx, I'll send it over to you. It ain't doing much here.  :dunno:

Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?
Post by: styx on December 28, 2018, 11:31:25 PM
That sounds a lot like me and the Spyderco Sage I mentioned earlier. Funny thing I've actually carried that knife a good bit but anytime I thought there would be more than a quick cut it got switched out for a SAK. Still managed to put a few unappealing scratches on it while sharpening  :facepalm:

Thanks for the offer, I might take you up on it one day. The handle of the S1 being small is concerning though. You were spot on with the Para2 so wouldn't surprise me if I got to the same conclusion
Title: Re: What fixed blade are you carrying today?

There is a bit of a rattle now, when the sheathed knife is shaken.

I think I would consider making a leather sheath for it. Or....glue a bit of bicycle inner tube inside the sheath. I've done that with other knives and it has worked out well.  :tu:

How are the serrations? Do you have a use for them much?

I dont mind them on this blade.  I would have preferred none but they guy I got it from chose this model.  They are very sharp so thats good but so far no real need for them.  I don't mind serrations but combo blades not so much.  I will say I do like how they dont take up too much realestate.
:cheers: maybe they'll be just right for something one day. Serrations can be good on ferro rods if you don't care about them staying sharp.

Post by: Aloha on February 14, 2019, 02:32:13 PM
Yeah they can be advantageous at times.  This is the only fixed blade I have with a combo edge.  Maybe one day I'll be glad I have them.  I got a decent price on the knife so I couldn't pass on it.

This is a Buck Model 116 Caper.I packed this for a walk through the forest,in preparation for turkey season.

I reshaped the handle to be far more compact than the original.It rides well and close to the body.

The top picture is the current/reshaped handle profile.
The second picture is another 116 with factory profile.
The last picture illustrates the difference.

Mora Basic 511 in red. Most of the time, I use the military green version of the knife, but decided I'd try something different.  Besides, doing some carpentry work (to cut costs, my folks are doing half the work, while the carpenters are doing half) around the house, it's easier to spot if I lose it. Moras have become my favorite work knife when working around others I don't know such as carpenters (and yes, one of the guys working I noticed using his knife today to pry open a paint can--what's why if I loan him one, it's junk; like a Frost) because if damaged, it's cheap to replace but still of flawless quality.

Also, I kept a Benchmade 7 handy to rip open plastic-wrapped and banded bundles of wood.

I made it on a three day course with a knifemaker in his workshop 12 years ago. Sadly, I spent those years keeping it in the original condition, instead of putting it to proper use. The other I made at the same time has seen a fair bit of use, but I do wish I'd put them to use a lot more. I now use both a lot more whenever opportunity arises.
