    I've been looking into some cool fixed blades. Im really interested in what other people think of as a cool fixed blade. For me it's a sweet blade design, the fit of it in my hand, and the durability/strength of the knife itself. Any of y'all got some cool fixed blades?

    What do you mean by "cool" and "sweet"?

    Would you feel a "outrageous" and "righteous" blade to be acceptable?

    Most people buy knives based on some sort of perceived need, not by use of adjectives.

    What I mean by "cool" and "sweet" is a knife that is attractive but will easily get a job done. I guess I should have rephrased that. How but "visually appealing" and "reliable"? Is that better for you?

    I used to collect fixed blades, mostly hand made hunting knives, and with a few exceptions I collected them for their beauty and interest to me with no intention of ever using them. (More recently I've been into buying user folders.) The photo is an old photo but it shows most of what I have. There are some in there that I bought from the makers and a few that I had made to my specifications. There are slight nuances in some of them that make them really appeal to me.

    That black knife was made by Keith murr and resembles a style by Wilson combat. (for all I know Keith may have made the knives for Wilson)
