That is a great combination of blades sir and a very nice sheath to keep them handy. It appears to be very well made and compact too.

Some Olde School Classic Gerbers - Kershaws . . .

. . . Thank You for the photos of them. Beautiful condition, I've noticed there seems to be an uptick on knife prices seeming to come down. A good time if you have the inclination (and $$) to expand your collection.

I've never seen that Bark River Fingerling before. Very nice !

Yep Iíve always liked the sharpfinger but bark river definitely gave it a little more style. Itís a perfect little carry knife and the sheath is top shelf too.

Well guys it showed up yesterday...one day earlier than the tracking said it would. My Sage 5 Light Weight...knife length is perfect egos are super sweet...my first impressions is a little on the thin side for the handle. The blade drops faster than my Kapara...it's so sharp. WOW...his thing is going to make it through the washing machine I just know it I don't even feel it in my pocket sitting at the bottom. What a nice knife...FRN scales are just about right just grippy enough to get the job done. I want to thank Pat for his advice on this knife he was right on the money with this one too. I like this knife for the overall size I just might buy the Sage 5 with the Carbon fiber handle also. If it sounds like I am excited you got that right.


Sage 5 and my Kapara


I have my work knife (sage 5) and my fancy carry (kapara) I would like to get rugged thicker handled heavier folding heavy duty camping knife...thinking of the Spyderco Shaman...what do you guys think. ?

Iíve never owned spyderco but they sure are nice knives. For edc and work knives Iíve always been a bench made guy. I live the triage. I have the Serrated version. The seat belt cutter/gut hook is very useful.

I may have to look into a spyderco after my next payday. I really like that design.

I found a Terava 85 mini puukko the other day . . .

at the AAPK. Here is a factory link to it.

https://www.varusteleka.com/en/produ...on-steel/61161

3 1/2" carbon drop point blade with rubber synthetic handle. This is the smaller sibling of the Skrama bushcraft tool.

Man, all y'all are giving me evil thoughts about Spydercos up there ... those are nice !

Eddited: Very cool knife this 85. It came with a Bark River heavy duty leather sheath that I like better than the factory versions. Delivered a day faster than scheduled - way to go USPS !!

Old school Gerber Flayer and Puma Bowie. Puma bowie is 1979 vintage long before their quality began to slip.

I have one of those. That vintage is known for having blades that are horribly difficult to sharpen, mine was no exception.

I snapped the tip in the early 80s. I held onto the knife for sentimental value as my grandfather had given it to me.

Some years back I contacted Buck about getting the blade swapped out, they obliged me, gratis.
