    Recieved this bee-yooty today. A @hellize butcher's cleaver in 0.4inch 5160. The beautifully carved beechwood handle is the right size and shape with which to unleash this powerful blade. It's not light, but it's comfortable and controllable. It's extremely sharp too. It would go through anything on a butcher's block with ease. The sheath is really cool too. 20200923_123142.jpg Can't wait to use this cleaver.

    I have never been much of a SOG fan but this year they have upped their game. The Ultra XR is one of the coolest! Super thin and 1.2 oz! S35vn and cf!!

    Was able to pick up a ZT 0900, always regretted not picking one up before they were discontinued.

    Spyderco knocked it out of the park with this Delica IMO. Cruwear in this thin blade stock, is a force to be reckoned with.

    Mail call:


    This is a test piece. I’m thinking it would be cool to have a complete table set of these.

    No steak until the weekend though :(.

    I’m also interested in seeing if the 420J2 is the supersteel killer an old forum member once claimed it to be. :rolleyes:

    Anyhow, a few passes on a Sharpmaker while the steak is resting won’t bother me a bit. :)

    You can see the whole knife over in the Custom forum. These were shot with a macro lens so I couldn't fit the whole knife in the photo.

    Here's the new Folding Paring knife from Victorinox, ordered directly from them and pretty much a reverse liner lock (close it the same way as the Compression Lock).

    2 this week - has been a great mail week. Another from Romania and maker @BogdanS - his first edition of his reimagined Opinel.

    I call it the BOGDANEL - a little guy with a 2-3/8" blade. Very, very nice in hand.


    And then from these shores - an altogether different knife from @Bill Siegle

    This perfect 9" BOWIE/CHOPPER/FIGHTER -

    A split personality knife because Bill didn't want to commit. ;)

    Will be a Bowie/Chopper for me. I love the feel and balance of this REAL KNIFE. :thumbsup:


    Outstanding sheath for it, with Baldric carry option by the great @Makael.


    @Sharp & Fiery - pictchas as I promised :)

    I've been chasing after a VoidXL for ages and finally snagged one yesterday. Can't wait to get my grubby little mitts on it.

    I continue to have the problem of getting great knives that are just too small for my large hands :( big fan of WE knives and was excited to see they were the ones making the production Shamwari, but its just a little too small for me to actually carry and handle in day to day use

    I love the rustic combination of blade finish and those robust pins and handle. Very nice! :thumbsup:
