I'm not a big fan of liner locks either, so what did I do?
I got one. :rolleyes: "Me" fingers never feel safe closing it.
There's been a few CRKT post recently, so
I'll include this one. Inexpensive, heavy and built like a tank
but cannot flip the clip. -?
Good stuff on the previous page guys!

Lightweight, inexpensive, always sharp, made in the USA. I keep this small one in my bag after I had to borrow one once.

It's a black glass tabletop.
I have it in white also but I never used it.
Everything looks good in or on black. 8-)

Thank you.
Would be easier shooting tethered to a laptop,
then I could check position of highlights on the fly.
One day soon I hope.

Bought this a long, long time ago.
This is the only knife I own that gives me pause.
It scares me a little. It's more sickle than knife.
I remember reading somewhere that just on looks alone, it could save your life.
Cold Steel Vaquero Grande.

Heh, nice thought to use Band Aids as a backdrop prop with the knife.
There is a saying among knife folks that goes like this; If you're not afraid of your knife, it ain't sharp enough. :twisted:


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

There is a place in the States called New Graham Knives.
My first Spyderco I ordered from them came with a filled dispenser
of Band-Aids in the box.
I had to laugh. :-)

Speaking of liner locks, this is one of my favorite pocket knives.

I use this one as a kitchen knife. Some of you might recognize the Pout House logo of L.T. Wright. ;-)a
I believe this one is called The Patriot, made with D2 steel.

Three Victorinox Swiss Army Knife MiniChamp knives in red, silver and black Alox (aluminum oxide), finish. Each knife is 58 mm in length closed (2.28 inches), and has a total of 14 tools enclosed in the body. Each weighs 39 grams (1.37 ounces), and makes a handy little multi-tool to carry in the office. Because the Alox model has aluminum scales (handles), there is no toothpick or tweezers as there are on the plastic handle MiniChamp knives.
