My pocket knife. It's from the crazy South African in Idaho, Chris Reeve.
As all his knives, except for the Special Forces stuff, it has a South African name - Mnambi.
Inlay on mine is Rosewood Burl. Each one is unique.

Condor 1983
incredibly heavy duty folding hunter
I ordered this knife from Bass pro shops for $59 in 1983 or 1982.

A few years ago I looked on eBay and they were selling for $275. Handles are linen/epoxy. Must have developed a following. Each blade lazer engraved with the makers name

I've got way too many knife pics.
Pretty much my daily carry anymore is my Benchmade Mini Crooked River that I ordered through their Custom Shop. What I spent on this is about the most I ever plan on spending on a pocket knife, but it's freaking awesome. So let's start with this one --

Here are my 2 favs. The blue one is a Ferrum Forge. Titanium handle and S35vn steel. I carry this one mostly.

The second is a Kershaw.

I've had my Abel knife for over twenty five years. It's not as pretty when I bought it, but still holds a great edge.

ha! I see that great minds think alike. My Ferrum Forge Gent is my "dress knife". Discreet, the pocket clip isn't big or flashy, I wore this at my wedding.
Haven't carried my Leek in a while. Great knife though.

I have all kinds of oddball stuff, but the most interesting thing I was recently sent was that CRKT freak kerambit, the Provoke:

Strange little knife. I'm not a fan of ring-based grips but this isn't too bad. Most of the time I've spent on training with sharp stuff does focus on reverse-grip so this translates fairly well to kerambits although I'm not specifically a fan of them, either. But it's a real conversation starter, at least.

Not my image but explains the function well.

I'm trying to remember to knifemakers. One is Winkler I am pretty sure, the others is maybe Daniels or Christopher or something. One has a flashy line then a "2" line more high end military based. Everything like $400+. Can anyone think of who I am talking about?

The second reference is too vague for me to help much but Winkler is definitely Winkler Knives. His original pattern tomahawk is famous in some circles.

Thanks! That is the one I was trying hardest to remember. The other was secondary, but a competitive market to his.
