What cars do knifemakers drive?

Not open for further replies.
This topic does not involve anyone except the makers and is also a topic that does not interest me in the slightest. I am not sure if you are the only one who is curious, but you are one of few I am sure.
What do you say Para, does this really have a place here?

Actually, I think this question is interesting and sufficiently 'knife' related. I had never given the idea any thought, but now that it is here, I would like to know.

Kit, what do you drive?
Tim? willing to say?
Darrel? what is your favorite engine?
Mayo, I know you drive something with holes in it.

Anyone else?

Paraiscurious, again

I'm not a maker/smith...
But I'd like to think there are a bunch of "pick-it-up" trucks on the list

I think Kit drives a '74 Ford Pinto with those flame decals on the side.

OK, I'll bite, Mercedes Benz 300D, Chevy Cheyenne pick up and Honda Valkyrie F6... none of them hold an edge very well.
Well I chose the most UN-PC vehicle I could find! A BIG black 4X4, DIESEL, Chevy Suburban. When I go to pick up my son from school the Soccer moms look at me with horror! That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside:) I try to add insult to injury by pulling up smoking a cigar! Its the little things in life that make it worth living.HA!

I suppose they should drive a Ford Saber or maybe an Olds Cutlass Supreme (which is what I drive).

Balisongs -- because it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!
come to think of it... I'm now curious also.

I drive a 2000 Toyota Tacoma V6 Ext. cab TRD 4x4... with the TRD supercharger (280HP)bolted on at the time of delivery (full factory warranty 6yr/60k).
I just love smoking those little Honda's, Acura's and Neon's with the big mufflers and go-fast stickers

But I couldnt hand-make a knife to save my life.
Hasn't thins just turned into 'what cars do BFC members drive'?

I build race cars, so I don't think it's fair if I talk about what I drive.


Greg, that was not a flame decal on the pinto.

OK - I'm in...

It ain't big, and it ain't a pick-em-up truck, but it's almost too much fun on the back roads of Virginia - I drive a 2000 Subaru Impreza RS. License plate is "MESSERS", I'll try and wave as I pass ya

Take care,

Good GRIEF! Some people are so touchy about topics some people post if ya want to be a moderator apply for the job if not...

If ya don't like the topic or feel it is not appropriate DON"T REPLY TO IT!
I think I saw Darrel Ralph driving an anodized Acura NSX, but it may have been Harvey Keitel, I dunno.

As Chandler Byng said on an episode of the sitcom "Friends", "Oh, oh! Can open...worms everywhere...." Current knife kollector, former kar kollector, The Roach still has the keys to the following: 1996 Range Rover 4.6 HSE, 1999 Mercedes-Benz C230, 1982 Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible (purchased in partnership by myself and my former broadcast media analyst in a moment of weakness because the price was too low to resist.) The computer printout of what I USED to own in the past 20 years is an embarrassment and shown only to close friends when the medication has worn off) My favorite vehicle? A 1995 GMC Yukon that I had set up to the point where I would blow off most stock BMW's that had the misfortune to appear beside me at a traffic light. <sigh> I still regret selling that truck.

Dave Ellis here, I drive a 99 E320 Mercedes and a 99 Harley Dyna Wide Glide.
