    Photos Got my first new Cold Steel!

    Nor have I. Was using it only yesterday with soaking wet hands and it didn't remotely feel unsafe or like my hand would slip. Personally, I feel this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing folders around as well. A real looker.

    Muela Vs Buck = Dilemma...

    Hopefully you guys can point me in the right direction. I'm after a fixed blade Bowie / Hunter style. Use will not be overly harsh. Lopping off thin branches, fire stick making and the like. No box cutting / breaking down kinda stuff - I have an abundance of folders for such tasks and my Rat1...

    Rough Rider & Related Slipjoints

    Thanks for the info. It's interesting to know they've held up for you. Most of mine have been good as well. A couple did develop lateral blade play, but tbh I was leaning on them harder than maybe you should for a slippy. Used in their limits they're fine. I do feel you can lean on Case harder...

    Photos Got my first new Cold Steel!

    Great pictures guys. I just got a Code 4 Tanto and love it. The thickness (or lack of) took me by surprise at first, but you get used to it. You guys in the US are very lucky with your knife choices and prices. US knives are quite expensive across the pond in the UK, and often models are on...

    Sell me on Cold Steel knives

    Thread revival alert! (but better than starting another?) I've always been intrigued by Cold Steel, but never pulled the trigger as they're expensive in the UK, and often out of stock. Anyway, as it was my birthday a few days back I done the deed and finally purchased one. I chose the Code 4...

    Rough Rider & Related Slipjoints

    I have that same knife Drew. Maybe QC issues, but mine was like a razor! They do hold the edge very well and easy to sharpen. They're not as pretty and as well finished as Case - but certainly not bad. I'd take a bet that Case would withstand long term use better though.

    What's Your Favorite SOG Bowie Style Knife? Question About these Knives Please.

    Old thread revival, but I think the Bowie 2.0 is the most beautiful fixed blade knife ever made.

    If you had to pick one Victorinox, which one would it be?

    Alox Farmer for me everytime. All the tools I need, thicker main blade than the other SAK's and as tough as it gets.

    Let's see your Case knives, old to new.

    An update from my post No.2912........with a story. I mentioned I love Case knives, but they are very expensive in the UK compared to what you guys in the US pay. Member "Hornetguy" (Drew) asked me to send him an email, which I did. He asked for my address, as he was going to send me a new Case...

    Rough Ryder High Carbon Series

    I was just comparing this to another RR Canoe and realised the difference in size. The high carbon is much more substantial with thicker blade stock...
