The Great Knife Picture Thread
on: March 27, 2010, 04:27:47 PM
We have such a terrific 'Great Multitool picture thread ', I reckon we need one for knives  :D. Let me get it started with my most humble Gerber Harsey Air Ranger , a knife I got simply cause I thought it looked tops  :D :D.









 

Come on guys show as your favourite knives in a 'Great' photo  :D
Gadget Guy zero ground blade pics please  :pok: :pok: :pok: :D

That's a nice looking Gerber, Mat; do you like it?  Good quality?  Etc? :)

It is a nice looking knife isn't Saza  :D , but it is a $35us knife so I do not think it is a Top Quality knife  :D.
It does not have a super steel blade(the box says 'surgical steel'  :think: :D :D :D :D), out of the box it shaves hair  8). The balance of the knife feels a little out , the handle end feels too light with the blade deployed. I find it a lot more comfortable to hold/use than my Kershaw Leek.
I have not had it long , but look forward to seeing how it goes & how well it hangs on to it's edge. :D

We do already have the "show us your folders" and "show us your fixed blades" threads.  Always like seeing some knives though.
I'm back!!

Beating the Leek's ergonomics is... pretty easy isn't it? :think:

Yeah, that's what I think, too, on the Leek; granted, the Scallion also suffers a bit from being too thin; having long, thin fingers means I need a bit of mass - not just the pocket clip - to grip onto whenever I deploy a flipper.  At least the Scallion is better in that regard, though. :/

Yikes Neil did you get  BP to help dig up this old thread  :o :P :D :D

Ok Bee man I see your BAK's  & raise you with some AAK's (Aussie Army Knives)  :D :D





Sparky I reckon if you changed you shrink wrapped handle to black it would look more than OK  :think:
BTW is that flesh I see on that belt sander  :think: :D :D

Well Aussie soldiers have been known to call them 'pig stickers'  :D :D.

Not sure if it is part of the knife's original heritage as a maritime knife & the spikes use with rope/knots  :think:.
I have read the marlin spike was good for cleaning mud from soldiers boots. I guess it was used as an oversized awl  :think:

Thanks Dave!
 I find it hard to get good pictures of shiny stuff (I tend to take a lot then bin most of them) but I'm very happy with these pictures  :)

Mat there is some Micarta on the way but that will have to wait until its been tempered  ;)
