    The fall of Emerson Knives

    Wow, I hadn’t looked at Emerson’s for a while. They have gone up in price, like all the other brands. They don’t seem to have changed much though, same designs and materials. In fact the two I have are still part of the current lineup. I really don’t like either one all that much.

    Why are Al Mar knives SO EXPENSIVE?

    Great old thread. It reminds me how good AlMars are. I shall be carrying one of my four AlMars each day this week. Nothing quite like them.

    Lionsteel ROK - New M390 Blade Lionsteel Solid Knife

    That clip is the first real innovation in years. All the old guard deserves to die. I am talking to you benchmade, zt/Kershaw, spyderco. Same old sh*t year after year. NO innovation. Lionsteel rocks.

    Who posting conjecture? I am asking a question. Thanks for the answer. I figured it was something like that. Now I know.

    Just took my Martin MCE2 out for a while. I wish I would have ordered a couple other knives from him before he passed. I really can’t find anything else like them now.

    RIP Charlie Mike

    If he died due to relapse we should know. If he didn’t, we should know. Denial is deadly. This ain’t no game.

    Busse vs. Fehrman vs.Strider

    I bought a used Horton. I liked it, but not as much as the person who stole it from me. Lost two good folders last year also. Fehrman sold the tool and die company so, no more knives from them. Glad I got several when I did. Bad year for me and knives. Fallkniven MB next! That should cheer...

    Thanks, I was wondering how he is doing. I hope he fully recovers. In the meantime, I will keep my knife because there is really nothing else like it.

    No, don't miss it at all. The rpw design allows for easy hand placement over the top of the upper guard.

    THE Hollow Handle Knife Thread

    Three things: 1-I like my RPW X46 better than my old CRK mountaineer. The oval/square handle is more secure and nicer to use than the round handle of the CRK. I really like this little knife. 2- The Martin MCE2 is holding up well for a HH. I would trust it in a survival situation at this point...

    The Stagnation of the Knife Industry - See page 3 post

    I find myself buying older models of knives that I never bought before simply because there aren't many new, original designs anymore. I am also re-buying some folders, that I used to have, simply because they were good, and different than what is currently being produced and designed. These are...

    Do you EDC a Mega Folder?

    Nice. I wish I had bought one of those. Sounds great with a pocket clip! Anyway, I can't say that I edc this, but, it is pretty easy to carry since it is so thin and light. HTM MADD Max, 7". It carries much better than say, a Rukus. I have some much shorter pocket bricks that can really start...
