Yes, I've been on there for years. Nathan's lotteries have quieted down, not like they were a few years ago.

Over 20 years for me on Bladeforums. Good to know about the availability of the Carothers knives. I'll start paying more attention for his next drop/lottery.

David Z Murphy. Probably from mid 1950's. Murphy was known as the man who made the first knives for Gerber before Geber started making their own knives. He is best known for his cast aluminum handle Murphy combat knife of WWII fame. He also made these kitchen knives until the mid 1950's and if I got the info right the company went bankrupt and shut down. This knife has an 8" blade and is 13 1/4" overall. Chrome plated cast aluminum handle and I think the blade may also be chromed carbon steel.

That is a nice Murphy knife, I've never seen that one before. I have a Murphy too, but it is the smaller more common pattern, very similar to the Gerber pixie in size. Nice feel and very comfortable to use.

I've got a few Murphy knives, mainly later direct from Dave before he passed. I really like them, a small one, Model 88, is my steak knife. I have some info in FotoTime album. There are a few more scans, including a write up from Fighting Knives magazine on his "Swat" model.

I had 4 or 5 of those smaller models Made by the son of David Z Murphy. Just like the early ones but probably made in the 90's? A friend came up with a bunch of them like maybe 15-20 and had me make some Kydex sheaths for them. Some were neck knives with beaded chains to hang from.

I have a pretty extensive knife collection, eclectic, too. The charm of this is that it's mostly machine made with a proprietary heat treat and hand finishing. I've watched videos of Nathan's testing, very impressive!



Looks like I finally got lucky. I'm on the list for a Field Knife 2 in black canvas micarta.

Great, I saw that he had another sale! You and I must have joined BF at about the same time. I had an earlier account, different screen name. I use my real name, Win Heger, too.

I see your Ritter knife, I'm addicted a bit to orange handles. It take a lot for me to resist.

That's because it was previously made by Benchmade.

Quote:
Ritter explained, "when Benchmade advised me in the summer of 2016 that as part of a restructuring that they were no longer going to produce my RSK knives, ..."

Ritter continued, "a number of knife companies approached me after I announced that Benchmade discontinued production, eager to take on this successful line of knives." In the end, Ritter has teamed with Hogue, Inc. to produce the next generation RSK® Mk1-G2. ...


Since Ritter first saw the original Benchmade prototype knife with the ambidextrous AXIS* lock, designed by knifemakers Bill McHenry and Jason Williams, he has been a huge fan. Ritter took note that the patent on that outstanding lock expired in 2016.
That last part was news to me. I knew the AXIS lock was under patent, I did not know it recently expired.

The three threaded holes for the pocket clip is also signature Benchmade, I'm a big fan of that setup option.

Aso, that explains it . . .

. . . very hard to conceal a knife's sire. I hope the knife exceeds expectations.

Ditto.

I might have to shop around for one of these, this one touches all of the right buttons in "what I like."
