2*elishwitz folders
one apogee CF +EDC folder +2 arc lite from darrel
one randall #16,pat crawfard's WARTEC,and a bunch of production benchmade and emersomns
to finance the whole shopping spree..

Thanks folks. One of the hardest things about these shows is actually picking what to get or, more accurately, what to leave behind.

So many knives, so little money.

Hardware aside, one of the best things about these shows is the opportunity they give us to talk knives in person. As Win said, it's not that long until March.

Congrats on the Easler, Ebbtide. He does some beautiful work and, IMO, gives real value for the buck. It sounds like you had a great shopping trip, Scorpio. I'm sorry to have missed you this time.

What model does Arno call it?

I'm missing the khukuri resemblance but otherwise I agree -- it seems like it will be equally comfortable in both tactical & food prep roles. Arno calls it simply a "Utility" but, to my eye at least, it has a Persian look to it. What do others think?

It is quite light for a knife with a 4" blade, tipping my postal scale at barely 3 1/2 ozs. It is 440C and 1/8" thick immediately in front of the handle but both a distal taper and tapered tang really kept the weight down.

The scales are black ivory (an African hardwood, not animal ivory) and the blade has a 2-tone finish -- mirror on the flats by the choil & spine and satin on the grinds. I'll probably set up a kydex/concealex rig for it but the original sheath is beautifully done as well. It is a cowhide belt sheath, pouch type, with an ostrich leather inlay. I'll try to get some better pics a bit later today.

Cheers,

Here's a slightly better pic of the Bernard:

I'll try again after I get it & the Handiman back from having the handles checkered. BTW, I also added individual pics of some of the others to my photo album.

Scorpio, you met me. I was sitting at Darrel's table and we managed to chat.

Scorpio, if you weren' t too busy holding up the walls behind the Spyderco tables you would have noticed that I waved a gesture of hello!

Didn' t i.d. Donna either. Perhaps in an attempt to circumvent forum member detectors
smile.gif
she had herself covered completely with Mirage X ceramic dusting!

See you both in March?

JerryO and Nakano,
nice to see you guys,i'm sorry i did not mention you but since you were not wearing blade forum badge i probebly did not connect the face to the blade forum persona.
however the pleasure of meeting you remaind.
scorpio.
 
Dudes ~ It was great meeting up with some of you at the NY show!!
biggrin.gif
Truly and eye-opener especially for someone who had flown in from the Far East to check out good cutting tools! The selection was awesome and plenty of interesting discourse with custom and production knifemakers!! Scorpio, Lifter, Nakano ~ You dudes ROCK!!
