    Impressive collection & beautiful blades Jerry.

    For me the Bog Oak affliction has worn off a bit. I know it's heresy but I prefer blackwood :eek:

    Thanks everyone!

    Individual comments ...


    The Ladyfinger is awesome and the balance is outstanding. My mother-in-law loves it too and is determined to steal it from me. She told me she'll be less likely to steal it as long as I keep her hog butchering knives sharp.


    Nice BC Jr.!


    Nice Leuku! I think you might have 2 of mine by a few hundred years :)


    Thanks. But it doesn't exist without pictures. I think you need to dig it up and post a pic here :)


    Both Bog Oak and Blackwood are on my list (over black/white of course). Here's my strategy: The wife knows guns so there's no way of sneaking new guns in the house. She doesn't like knives so I'm hoping they will all just look kind of similar to her, having dark brown/black wood and black/white stripes.

    Jerry, for your strategy to work you better store your knives in packs of three all over the place.... if they would be all in one place and assuming she can count you are screwed :D
    I had two stashes but got caught while both were out...and got an ear full about how somebody would need that many knives...lalalalalalalalallaa....that was about what i can remember from the rest of the conversation!

    That's my strategy as well :)

    My chances of scoring Blackwood just plummeted :(
