    Are you sure these have been used? They look brand new, not a mark on them.

    Contemplating buying a mercator folder - old man use to have one and swore by it... its a knife everyone has to own at some stage.

    Good grief, I didn't realize I had so many

    They all get used.

    There's an old Mercator in my belt pack too.

    I just worked out who you are. Nice collection, any real favorites out of that lot?

    I quite like the shape/look of the bone handled one, is a commercial or custom?

    Cheers.

    I am who I am.

    2nd to back right with the antler handle is a Silver Stag Damascus, and lives on my belt. The one on its left with a bone handle is a Beretta that's had a lot of use 'cos its a good shape for arses and boning. The front right antler handle was made by a chap Brown in the Hawkes Bay. A great knife that stays razor sharp but a little brittle. It comes Tahr hunting with me.

    2nd to back left is a custom Hess from the States, and probably the knife I like the most. I use the little Silver Stag the most.
    Any one of them would do all I need a knife for.

    Cheers. The white handled one is a Boker 25th Anniversary Ltd Edition. #122/300. Had it for a couple of months. $156NZD landed. Thats good value. The steel is N695 which is similar to stainless 440C. Its a neat knife and taken a good edge. Maybe it will get some use over the roar.

    The black leather sheaths are all after market ones from KSF to replace loose or shallow ones that came with the knives.

    The most expensive is third to back, left. Its a Chris Reeves from the States. $230USD plus freight. C35V steel. Amazing edge holding but way over priced for doing what the front left Mora can do for $30. Or the rusty old Mercator. I must be nuts.

    Theres something about knives, can't just have one of them.


    I will eventually design my own hunting/kitchen blades and get some blanks cut (through a local waterjet agent) and then finish them off myself.

    Will do research into the choice of steel once the designs are completed. Finding the time is the current problem.

    My recent purchase, for Tahr. I was actually motivated to buy this knife after seeing your sons older model on a recent story he uploaded. I did some research and found Svord had a new model out.

    My Specifications:

    - Wooden Handle (I am fond of the classic look)
    - Brass guarded bolster (older Svord didn't have)
    - Carbon tool Steel (holds a bloody nice edge)
    - Slightly narrower blade than my previous knife

    This one fitted the bill.

    Svord General Purpose Knife - 6 1/4” Blade, Mahogany scales. (Model:# 870BB)




    The only problem I have is with the finish on one side of the handle is lacking, I have sent an email to Mr Baker regarding this issue and will wait an see what he has to say, other than that its feels and looks great.


    Cheers,

    Raging Bull

    Very nice. That will be great for breaking down those big sambar. I agree, its a great shape. What a shame he doesn't make them anymore like that one of the boy's.
    Shame about the handle, but it will soon be covered in blood and guts anyway

    As an aside, does anyone know about cKc branded knives made by Baker of Svord and sold on the internet? How do you order them etc?

    Cheers
