Use IMGUR on a PC... I use the app to upload sometimes but I copy links from the website on a PC. Upload the image(s) and make them private/hidden. Click an image in your list and do these two things:



Click a size (I recommend LARGE THUMBNAIL), and copy the BB CODE. Paste into a post here. It shows up like my image in this reply.

I'd get one, but I just got one of those $20 Anker LC90's that comes with an 18650... pretty decent light. Plus I have a Maratac AA, AAA, and a 5.11 something AA. I'm not a big flashlight collector though it seems I'm getting there. I have some Duracell's that seem decent too.

Kershaw Link. USA made, nice belly, but not extreme, 3.2", typical Kershaw razor sharp out of the box. I got it for $40 recent sale at Knifecenter. That's a decent value in my book.

Default Karahawk

I just picked up a Spyderco Karahawk because I couldn't pass up the great deal it was offered for. I've only had it for a few days, but I think it's the best EDC pocket knife I've ever owned and I think it'll take a lot to replace it.

Cons: My first knife with the Emerson wave, so I nearly cut myself a few times pulling it out of my pocket.

Pros: Fits my hand well, slimmer than a few other popular karambits so it's not bulky in the pocket.

Stock pick attached for your viewing pleasure.

I had both LINKS, gave the FRN away and still have that AL one. Nice, but too slippery in that version. Really want that new copper Kershaw Natrix... but might opt for the the USA 7777 instead. I wish the copper variant was 3.25".

Congrats! I've wanted a Randall for many years but never pulled the trigger. That looks like it's about perfect.

Well, maybe with Black Micarta LOL!

Seriously, awesome!

Thanks guys
I'm seriously debating getting a Randall Fireman's Special
My future son in law is on the career path toward SF Fire Department
but I wonder... Do firemen even carry sheath knives at all?
Still, it would be a nice gift but it would be far better if it were a useful gift as well.
This fellow at Clinton's Knives says he can get one with a Border Patrol grip in 10-11 months.

My basic, non-custom #3 took 5 months. but he doesn't charge a premium like everyone else. Catalog price plus $15 shipping

If it was Gary Clinton you dealt with his father was Tom Clinton. Tom was a long time Randall dealer. When the Gulf War started I was able through Tom get several Model 14's for military friends of mine. At the time Randall was making them as fast as they could for our soldiers.
I met Gary at a knife show in Illinois some time ago.

Bareknuckle is very sweet, I suspect just as slippery though. I put a few 1/2" dots of this tape on these slightly slippery knives. Any of the Kershaws with the aluminum scales are pretty similar in that sense. I would prefer G10, or FRN like Spyderco Delica for example. My hands are too dry more often than not, so smooth aluminum is not the grippiest material.

That's the guy, Gary.
I've only swapped e-mails with him but he delivered for me.

Got the call today! A few limited edition Benchmade 570's came in! Special colored camouflage with the Benchmade logo painted into the handles. I purchased two sequential numbers 629 and 630 of 1000. They look so awesome!

I just pickup another Buck 110, this one's the automatic version. I've had about 6 of these 110s over the years, this one's as good as it gets for the 110s I have had.
I'll post up some pictures when I get home.

I picked up an S&W Special Tactical knife a few weeks. Very happy with it so far. Nice quality for the money.

Nice. I had a 701 I bought in the 70's. When I no longer hunted I sold it to a guy at a Fresno gun show for 4 times what I paid for it. He was thrilled to buy it. Just watch when you draw the knife the blade doesn't cut the strap. I had to modify mine to not do that.
Happy hunting buddy.

Beautiful Western. Classic that never goes out of style. Any clue in the accompanying paperwork that might give a hint at itís born on date?

Theses were made in the 70's. There were I think 3 models in the series. Coleman even had a engraved edition that was I think the 701.
Long out of production.
