Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Based entirely on visual appeal, whether for color, jigging, character, proportion, whatever, and having nothing at all to do with usefulness or cutting ability, please post pictures of your three most beautiful knives. And if you can, please tell us why it is so appealing. My number one always has been and always will be this red stag Northfield #72 Mini-Hunter. The color, character and texture of the stag covers is matched by the perfect proportions of the long pull, cut-swedged clip blade. And for the final topping, the triple threaded bolster sets everything off to a T. The very first time I saw this knife I was smitten by the beauty of the pattern, and the red stag is the ultimate of the pattern in my eyes. Number two for me is this S&M File & Wire Daddy Barlow. I like "bling" on a knife, and this one has it in spades: from the beautifully deep-jigged wormgroove bone to the stamped and Washington bolsters and the etched blades, there is so much of interest here. The wonderfully pointy big spear blade is just spectacular! For number three I chose this Tree Brand Classic Stockman from the mid 1970s. Even without fancy bolsters, this is still a busy knife with its double shields. The bone color and jigging is hands down the BEST I've ever seen, and the reverse frost etch and trapezoidal long pull balance the beauty of the bone. Come on now, jump right in with both pictures and commentary. Old, new, foreign or domestics, let's see those "wow" knives!
