    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    That is brilliant. I have severe tinnitus and like to crack my window in the car when driving to drown it out. Drives my wife crazy because she doesn't understand. When the cicadas are singing their song this summer, I am going to use this analogy to show her what I live every day.

    What "Traditional Knife" are ya totin' today?

    It's got some pepper spots on the lock bar in the well from my corrosive nature ;) I don't have a clue what motivates one to carry a "wish list" knife, but when that happens, the knife ceases to be an object of art, and becomes an actual tool, always at the ready...

    What "Traditional Knife" are ya totin' today?

    Been carrying this Viper for a little while now. It sat in a slip in a drawer for way too long. I love the rams horn covers, and the titanium bolsters really cut down the weight. It is slim, and rides exceptionally well in my RFP. The N690 steel holds a great edge, and this knife has yet...

    YOUR G.G.G.G. GRANDMOTHER'S GARTER KNIFE(?) 1800's SHEFFIELD ENGLAND

    I just know somehow that this wonderful dagger has a sordid past...it just seems to whisper tales of debauchery, sinful ways, and wickedness! LOL

    YOUR G.G.G.G. GRANDMOTHER'S GARTER KNIFE(?) 1800's SHEFFIELD ENGLAND

    Epic Post Brother Jim! When I was looking at the first post, I found myself thinking about cigar smoke in the air, the clinking of glasses and bottles, and the sound of a piano winding it's way through the cacophony of a crowded bar. :thumbsup::)

    Broken backspring Queen

    Queen made a LOT of knives over many years time. If this was a widespread problem it would have been represented by numerous threads here. My search only yielded a couple threads, and they weren't huge threads with many respondents, so, maybe just some bad luck here and there. In all my years I...

    Broken backspring Queen

    It's a sad sight to see when the spring on a slippie breaks :( Check out this https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/broken-back-springs.1664075/ thread, seems Queen got several mentions by various members for this issue.

    The James Brand Wayland, a review and thoughts

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and impressions on this knife. I like it! It has a very clean look to it, I like that they placed the nick way up front for maximizing leverage on opening. To my eyes this knife has great lines, modern super steel, and a useful blade shape. Pretty cool that you...

    Victorinox FOLDING paring knife?

    Learned about two unknown to me Victorinox products today, this paring folder, which I think would be more aptly named a folding picnic knife, and the Victorinox nail clippers. I can see the utility of a sharp blade that folds and also has the shape of a butter knife for use in making...

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

    Thanks for the clarification, I read one or two other posts where folks seemed confused, and after reading your post a couple times, I was a tiny bit confused. As to the rolleys, never assume, LOL, and don't take it too seriously. It was just meant in general to your entire post, and was posted...
