    That’s cool. My wife has her grandfather’s knife he used for whittling and cutting for almost 70 years. Basically a toothpick for a blade!

    Horsewright, I have always admired your leatherwork and it inspired me to make my own kit. Your knives are nice too, and now we know they are tougher than s**t. Keep up the good work!

    Still has the factory edge - just minor honing. Won't shave hair any longer , but damn close.

    Another of my old one. This is my first scouting fixed blade knife. A Premier Lifetime H49 Made in Solingen, Germany. This one have suffered from my first attempts at sharpening something. But is still in good condition for its age.

    Gerbers may be often maligned, but these 2 have been faithfully solid for many years, through much use and abuse.

    The Crucial gets thrown in my pocket anytime I'm working around the house or in the garage. It's been used for all kinds of things neither a knife or pliers should be.

    The BG Ultimate has been my camping knife for a long, long time. It's actually help up fairly well.

    Sterilized USN SEAL GRP 2 knife from Nov 1994, after 20yrs of salt water sun-n-fun.

    Now, just as retired as the owner, and is my knife to grab for the end of the world,...

    unbreakable, unrustable, non-magnetic, and electrically insulated...maintains a truly sharp edge about same as issue 1095, but then maintains a useful cutting edge for as long as one needs, no matter what is being attacked. Straighten the edge with a brass rod, and keep right on cutting.

    Anodize is a surface film of the titanium oxide ceramic coating naturally ocurring, altered, which reflects/refracts light at different angles and wavelengths, just as several inches of water over a mirror, so color shifts, as does what is visible on surface, with lighting and angle changes. It is a lot more worn than even these let on. A sometimes rough med. grey, sometimes bronze, sometimes near black parkerized appearing knife, as light or dark as surroundings.

    6A294DF2-6BED-43CD-B2F7-72A16E0C37AC.jpeg The BM is mine but the ESEE is my brother in laws and I’m going to replace the handle.
    No idea how he did it, don’t want to know really.

    Been on my hip every single day for the last 3 years, including these last few days in the Mohican State Forrest. Handles every chore I have ever thrown at it.
