    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    I accidentally 'flipped' a forum knife several years ago. I wanted to trade it for another knife of comparable value, but you don't get much traction in the trade forum, so I listed it for "sale or trade" in the sale forum and asked what I thought was such a stupid high price no one would buy...

    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    I share many of your views, but my romantic side just doesn't like the reality of it all. The pirate in me says I should just shut up, make a few dummy accounts, buy all they will let me, and sell them for the ransom they can bring. The pirate in me is an a-hole, so I don't usually listen to...

    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    I think everyone who is reading this and intends to buy an annual knife should stop buying new GEC knives to help free up some production space. It's the least we can due to lighten their burden. Maybe if they had the available production capacity we could be choosers instead of beggars? Or...

    Rough Ryder Reserve: New Premium Rough Ryder Line

    I bought the first three and I agree. The single blade "One arm" knife is slim and solid with a well ground thin blade great action. The closest thing in "fit n finish" or feel to GEC, that isn't a GEC. They can do it, that they don't is a shame.

    New knife from Queen?

    I am not sure if I missed them previously but the April catalog from the Smoky Mtns has 7 Queen knives offered, all under $20 each. Without the "Q" coin shield I dare say they would be indistinguishable from some old RR patterns. Queen City is also represented and appear to be of the same...

    I was hoping a Buck 119 or 124 maybe myself. I still think we need a classic fixed blade one year, you know, for balance. Right now you can outfit out a 119 with S30V steel and Elk handle on the Buck website. Would make a great pairing for the forum knife IMHO.

    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    I would love another forum knife. I vote fixed blade for the "Traditional Folders and Fixed Blades" forum. A real 6"-8" blade Bowie. A real belt knife.

    Post your favourite photo of your Traditional knife

    I haven't had the inclination or opportunity to to pursue photography in a while. Hopefully later this year I will be able to pick it back up. Some older shots I think turned out ok.

    Rough Ryder Reserve: New Premium Rough Ryder Line

    Oh come on, you are knocking them, and that's ok. The only issues I have are: You claim they are copies of Case or GEC patterns. Which ones specifically? If you mean a canoe, a whittler or Coke bottle, and a one arm knife in general guess what. Those are not Case or GEC patterns either. Well the...

    Rough Ryder Reserve: New Premium Rough Ryder Line

    The Denim Micarta I assume was sanded down to the final shape when the knife was assembled. When you are sanding them further is the denim pattern vanishing? How would they get that pattern throughout the resin I wonder unless there is some sort of fabric in there? My 001 does look like the...

    Case Tony Bose Collabs pic and discussion thread.

    Just my .02 I would want to return for a replacement or refund. I agree with every issue you have found, and plenty of good folks think we are nit-picking, but clearly they can and do make them better than they made yours. I would try to find one of those rather than have them 'correct' the...

    My wife has all three RRR for me, but I have to wait until Christmas to get them. She doesn't know about those sweet Knipex pliers though (and neither did I until I saw this), so I will have to grab one of those myself to hold me over. Great photo!

    Case Tony Bose Collabs pic and discussion thread.

    This is just heartbreaking news. Godspeed Tony and condolences to the Bose family. The world got a lot less interesting today.

    BF2020 Viper Swayback Discuss Thread

    Warping makes sense because the tensions that existed during growth and when the horn was intact are gone and the material is pretty thin. Changing humidity and temps alone will obviously have an effect over time. Is water a problem because interior horn material is exposed? Or it's not growing...

    Not bad for then local post office to only lie about the time of the day mine were delivered. So they came in late yesterday and I got them this morning. Worth the wait. I will clean them but these photos are right out of the boxes. Added the Case Swayback Jack I am carrying today for scale...

    These will be my first Ram's Horn knives. I'm looking at all these great pictures and I honestly haven't seen one yet I couldn't live with. I keep going back and forth between weather I like the lighter or darker ones, or maybe striped is my favorite, or maybe more in the middle? Smooth vs...
