    I'm starting this thread not just as a forum to display knives, but I really enjoy traditional slipjoints, I like their classic looks, their lack of legal issues, and most of all that I can use them in public without people thinking I am out to kill them, and I want to use this as an opportunity to find out about single blade slippys that I'm unaware of, and maybe share some with you all. I'm relatively new to traditional slippys, but with todays modern steels, and myself being a relatively light user (when I want more knife, I use more knife, like a fixed blade etc...) I don't need or want extra blades, they are often heavier, bulkier, and sometimes the blades are difficult to access (don't get nervous I have a bunch of multi blade slippys). But for this thread let's keep it limited to single blade traditional slippys (no russlocks, I have a couple and love them, no Buck 110 a couple and love em etc..)
    My humble single blade slippy collection

    Don't get me wrong, I have and love plenty of other single blade traditionals, also the opinels and plenty of friction folders like citadel, and svord, but lets try to keep it to slipjoints if we can

    I really enjoy single blade slipjoints as well...but if you're gonna limit the thread perhaps you should take a moment to crop that first image...I'm just sayin'...;)

    Elliott, beautiful group of handmades. Now I see why it's taking Jerry so long to get to my name on his list - he's been so busy making knives for you! :D

    Rob, that was made by John Howser of KY. Picked it up at the Blade Show in 2009 at John's table.
    Integral frame/bolsters, cryo treated ATS-34 and (according to Tony Bose) some old German jigged bone from the 50's or so.
