Not sure if these fit with the tone of the thread, but they most definitely qualify as sharp!
The first one is a 1924 Kropp, made in England and ground in Hamburg. The blade is a 5/8 round nose and it holds a fine edge very easily indeed.
The other is a Taylors of Sheffield from around 1920. The nose of the blade was damaged and at some point re-ground nicely down to a square point blade. It's a hollow ground blade of between 6/8 and 7/8. This one seriously takes no prisoners, the square point in particular is brutal if you get it wrong! Respect is needed. The blade is showing a bit of pitting but it is 95 years old...!
Seemed so sad to have such a small knife with such GIANT sheath, so I made one of my custom designed sheaths for it. I made the first one for my Ontario Rats 3 and the cross strap snaps on and off.
Absolutely fits the theme. I just got into straight razor shaving so I am intrigued.
Eng1nerd's EDC (and other nerdy things)
So I haven't been on the forums in a while, haven't bought any new gear in a while either (i think those two are related )... until yesterday...
Yesterday I went to my local knife store to pick up a boning knife for my father's birthday and figured I would scope out all the new stuff since the last time I had been there. Checked out the new ZTs, Kershaws, Brous's, etc etc. Then I turn to the big glass case in the center of the room where they keep their high end and custom knives and there it was! One of those rare times when as soon as you see something you immediately know you're probably not going home without it. Staring right at me was this beautifully understated, uniquely simple, elegantly stylish white-handled knife with amazing contours. It was a warthog ivory handled Arno Bernard "Wasp." I already own an Arno Bernard "Dassie" that I absolutely love so when I asked to see the Wasp I expected to be impressed but as soon as it hit my hand I knew I was buying it. This is just one of those knives that is so absolutely perfectly designed that it has "that feeling" you can't really describe but hits you as soon as you hold it. It is the perfect size, perfect weight, simple but stylish, classic but modern and feels amazing in the hand. N690 steel, Warthog Ivory handle, tapered tang for perfect balance, cape buffalo sheath.
So here it is.... instantly my new favorite knife.
And it was so! Titanium Hinderer 3.5 scales... LINER DELETE!
This is my latest buy. Skrama chopper with a MOLLE sheath.
The scandi puukko is an older one but I thought it might be a good idea to attach it to the Skrama sheath.
That way the chopper and the smaller utility knife is always together.
This combo is too heavy for belt carry but I will be carrying with a shoulder sling. Or in a backpack.
