Looks way better than stock! Plus wave opener. Great mod.
Boker XXL Kalashnikov isn't quite a pocket sword compared to some Cold Steels, but it's big and it's a lot of fun and reasonably priced.
I just searched back through my more recent entries here and find I've neglected to post my most recent large knife acquisition--another Spartan Harsey Folder, "naked" to use the description of our friend @Kmikaz3 .
My NW edition is really too pretty to beat on, but the SHF is such a sturdy beast and so solid in hand that it begs to be used hard so I grabbed this one off the Exchange for just that purpose.
BTW, I've since bobbed the tail on this one to make it more just a pull and better keep it out of the way.
The Harsey blade profile is brilliant, almost iconic, and certainly immediately recognizable. My Gerber Harsey Air Ranger II is an outstanding knife, even in Gerber's early 2000s mystery steel (which seems to behave like a well tempered AUS8, but I am no authority on that), largely because of the profile and grind of the Harsey designed blade.
I'm glad I finally got around to the Spartan Harsey Folder as it's one I'd been eyeing for a number of years. It didn't take me long after acquiring one to pick up a second. For what seems at first glance to be a somewhat chunky blade, it's surprisingly thin behind the edge. I murdered a bunch of cardboard a week or so ago to feed into our Russian fireplace, and my S45VN NW SHF just flew through it. Everything about the knife from the blade shape and grind to the locked-in handle design and the raised, jimped thumb ramp makes the knife an exceptional cutter and workhorse.
The Fantoni CPM S-125-V version does a pretty good job on cardboard also.
I rarely preorder knives, but the hot second I saw the Ritual it went straight into my cart. This Folts design feels like it'd be right at home in Cold Steel's catalog; I would never have imagined CRKT releasing a 4.5" Persian-style flipper.
Just think of what you could do that steel bolster...
5. One of those giant Beltrame automatic stilettos! Classic and fun!
I guess 4" of 440C qualifies!
I think this Pat Crawford custom is pretty large. Next to a small 21 for comparison purposes. Actually, I probably would not have purchased it if I had known just how big it is.
Just dwarfs its little brother...which isn't really little.
This A.G. Russell build out is quite large for a gentleman's folder.
Full size Civivi bullmastiff.
