BARK RIVER BUMBLE BEE!
EDIT: Tagged awaiting a picture that isn't corrupted :brickwall:
very cool! Interesting handle choice!
got a little tired with these
main row, left to right:
leatherman core, with leather hoster.
cheapo chinese leatherman based multi tool. blade broke off, so ground it down to make it 100% UK edc legal.
frosts mora clipper, with handle wrapped in thin cord.
magnum blue mantis folding linerlock.
slipjoint bought in france. has a fairly strong backspring, and a pocket clip. apart from having to add some loctite to the clip screws, it's a very good knife for only a few euros
victorinox penknife (exact model unknown) found in a pair of craghoppers trousers I bought a few weeks ago ;D
home built "neck knife" made from an old disecting scalpel, with the handle cut down. origionaly had a thin wooden handle slab expoxied to one side, with a cord wrap over the top. don't use this one much. sheath is made from some spare webbing strap.
home made prybar type tool. basicaly the center bar from an old door handle, with a chisel type point on one end. more made for fun than anything.
home made small knife, usualy found in my PSK. made from a little bit of scrap steel aquired from collage, with the blade ground using a file and elbow grease. sheath made from an old ceral packet, and duct tape.
and above them is a swisscard quattro, which is the only one I EDC.
That Victorinox looks interesting, nice find! Any chance we could have a close up picture of it?
the grip seems to be made of some kind of metal (alox?) rather than the more normal plastic. the lower logo (not the shield) seems to suggest this one was a tourist souvenier, from somewhere called interlaken. on the base of the large blade there is a logo which reads "Elinox" with some kind of arched logo above it, and on the opposite side is written "Victorinox, Switzerland, Stainless, Rostfrei".
Cool, "Rostfrei" means "rust free", or stainless.
I've never seen one of those before, but then theres probably a lot of things I haven't seen before. :lolhammer: Out of interest, where did you get the craghoppers from? Second hand I assume :shrug:
no, that's the realy weird thing. pair of brand new craghoppers kiwi zippoff trousers, from millets (a high street camping store, for anyone not familiar with it) still had all the tags ect. we can only guess that they where returned by someone almost immedatly, due to being the wrong size or something. might have a look on sosak, see if they have any info.
EDIT: looks like it's a variant of the secretary model.
Definite SAK affliction. Congrats... Nice collection
That's just a representative sample of the Alox ones. I have 40+ more of various models in both alox and cellidor...
Just got my order in from Blue line Gear today, not only are these great knives but they have GREAT customer service. I highly recommend them. I am hoping to get a orange scale for the XM-18, anyone know where I can ger one?

Nice new set up you have there Matt!!
Here is my latest.
Nice one Stu!! That blade design is slick and can't beat that awesome finish on it either!
Thanks. It is supposed to be quite a tough finish. We shall see :evil:
Wow, extremely cool Stu :roof:
What is that finish called?
It is a digi camo finish. I beleive it is three layers of coating, being etched through randomly with a laser and thus creating this characteristic, three-colored pattern.
From my understanding, it is one of the toughest blade styles from them. Can take a beating and just wipe it off and good as new. . . I will test it soon enough.
You can get replacement scales direct from Rick Hinderer. Philip at theknifecellar.com also has them in stock right now.
