    Case vs. Sak

    Case is more collectable. More variety. Victorinox makes something that most folks find to be the handier everyday tool. Steel is equal. Almost identical alloy and heat treated to a similar hardness. I have more Case knives than Victorinox, and I like them very much. But my most common...

    Is making your own knives worth it?

    I could buy a whole lot of knives for the amount of money needed to buy equipment for making my own knives of equivalent performance. So from a strictly financial perspective: No, it does not make sense. Cheaper to buy the knives. But if you enjoy developing the skills and making something...

    Weird Draft/Post Issue

    Happens to me sometimes. There's an icon that looks like a floppy on the far right of the posting toolbar. Click it and it gives you a tiny drop down menu. Choose "delete draft". That will remove it.

    Moore Maker

    Mooremaker has always subcontracted their knives. Used to be (prior to 2007) their nicer ones were made by Queen and their standard ones were made by Camillus. In that time period, the knives made by Queen were very nice knives. Queen's quality dropped off in subsequent years. I honestly...

    Gerber's going "Custom"...nice!

    There's a significant difference in the fit and finish of a knife purchased from the Buck Custom shop compared to that of their standard knives But when I look at the Gerber site, it just looks like they are swapping out FRN handle colors. It doesn't look like it's an actual difference in fit...

    Do you ever take along a knife specifically to use at table when attending a BBQ or visiting a steakhouse for a meal?

    Be very careful about trying to project your opinions and thoughts onto others. I said, "I would consider it rude." That is MY interpretation of MY actions. How do YOU know what the chef would think? You only know what YOU think. Are you a chef in a fine dining establishiment? It's all...

    Do you ever take along a knife specifically to use at table when attending a BBQ or visiting a steakhouse for a meal?

    Picnic, maybe, but probably not. Restaurant, absolutely not. I consider it rude and uncouth to do so.

    Your newest addition:traditionals of course!

    Came across somebody who had a mint in box 1990 Camillus-made Remington Tracker in "440 stainless". I already had one in 0170-6C, but wanted the 440A version. Well heat-treated 440A is a great knife steel for everyday knives, and it's hard to find anymore. I really like this pattern. Very...

    GEC handles?

    GEC is unlikely to have a spare set of the original cover material. They don't do "stock". Every run they do is unique. If they did have such a set, they would be unlikely to want to expend their scarce resources replacing covers on a non-warranty issue. It takes considerable skill to do...

    Trying to reach another BF member...

    If he is not currently a paying member, you can't PM him. You should be able to leave a message on his profile page, even if he does not have a paid account. However, users have the option to not allow anyone to view their profile page. So that approach is a "maybe". If he is not a paid...
