    "er indoors" is not happy with me having the knife she reckons it should become a kitchen knife because its razor sharp and would cut thru' meat better than her knives. Oh well at least I owned it for a day. I wonder if Mrs Bowie (Jims wife) snaffled his knife for use in the kitchen.. S

    All of those are very nice - Ulster Barlow looks mint! How's the quality on those S&M's?

    S&M's as you prolly know, are made by Queen. It is generally felt that the S&M's are the highest quality knives ever made by Queen. Queens generally can be hit or miss. These are my only two S&M's and they are very nice fit & finish, with good walk and talk. The Baby Sunfish is 1 of 100, made in 2009. The bare end 2 blade Jack is 2010-2011, I think.

    The Ulster Barlow is actually rebuilt and then customized with stag scales by a knife repair and custom shop I know in Oregon. He does excellent work as you noted. a few more pics...

    My oldest just bought a contemporary KA-BAR. I was surprised that it does seem like it's got a good level of quality.

    He spent too much, though

    Apologies for the blurry image but just did a search on this one which I use as a general utility knife. It was one my wife inherited from her Grandfather and now has found it's way into my pocket. Research says it is a Taylor Eye Witness pattern 8173/1914 of the type that were issued by the Australian Government to Aussie troops in WW1. Whether this one has that pedigree or was purely civilian I don't know but it is an interesting knife. As well as the cutting blade it has a small an spear shaped opener.

    Thanks - it's a GEC Teardrop Bullet-End Jack. Made earlier this year. It was a special factory run made for a dealer, with a few different blade and handle cover offerings. This one is a single blade with a saber grind, and smooth autumn gold bone covers.

    That's a nice Great Eastern! I couldn't quite read the tang stamp in the photo. I haven't picked up any GECs yet but that one inspires me!

    I carry a Kershaw Burst 1970. The blade steel is 8Cr13MoV, which is similar to AUS8. I got this one because it's an assisted opener and I can carry it tip-up on my left side (I'm left-handed). It's inexpensive, holds an edge reasonably well, is easy to sharpen, and it opens nice and quick one-handed.

    I guess I'm late to the party. I've carried a pocket knife my entire life; as far back as I can remember I always felt naked without one. Until recently all I owned were traditional slipjoints. When I was a youngster I carried a Schrade Old Timer, usually the 34OT. My wife bought me a Gerber Multiplier in the early 90s and I carried it for years. (Love that lifetime warranty: I broke it 3 times and they replaced it each time.) Last month I received my first "modern" tactical knife, a SpyderCo "Tenacious," and it's my EDC for now. I still collect and have a decent collection of fixed and folding knives. Between guns, knives, guitars and fishing gear, it's no wonder I'm always broke!

    I feel naked w/o a knife, I use mine daily for all kinds of things, assisted open Kershaw that I got at the Smokey Mountain Knife works , lifetime warranty, I sent it in for repair once and they put in a new blade.

    I have lots of other knifes too, Opinel has some really sharp blades, but kind of bulky cumbersome for a pocket knife.

    One day I'll have to take some pics of the collection, nothing "boutique" just some good cool knives.
