The Knife of Man's Desiring

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

They are all Behring Made knives out of Montana. All are forged (not stock removal) O1 steel and trust me they have the heat treat dialed in on this as their O1 gets and stays sharp.

I'm just going to sit here and stare at the two of you staring at these knives. I'm not worthy. Beautiful.

I have no use for one, but I've always thought these old brass-sheathed dive knives are pretty cool:

That makes three of us, however, their ProLT knives, same steal and forging process, are much more reasonable.

But order early. It’ll take 2-12 weeks to get it made.

I am a big fan of the Buck 110 Folder so when I saw this it is in the style of the 110 and hits that 1970s feel...I may have to make an order. They are not expensive, but I will also want a custom sheath...

Would you post more information about it?

In the Buck 110 category, I have an Uncle Henry LB7 - not sure why that instead of the Buck, except that I've been something of a Schrade fan for a long time.

When I was 14, my stepdad got me a Craftsman (Schrade) for my birthday. Looks just like the Buck 110. I still have it but because it is the longest I have owned a knife I don't carry it much anymore so I got a USA Buck 110 to fit that slot...it lives in my truck.

Knives are the most gray aspect of Pennsylvania weapons law and I'm always pretty scrupulous about what I do carry. I'm a bit of a zippy driver and I've never had a problem with police interaction while being armed with a pistol or revolver or having a truck full of long guns, but I've seen so many people get jammed up over pocket knives I tend not to carry anything bigger than an Opinel no. 8.

I looked at the Opinel #8 and it has a 3 1/4 inch blade. The Buck 113 has a blade length of 3 1/8 inches, so you would be in the same size group...but it is a fixed blade so I don't know how that fits in to the carry law in Pennsylvania. You certainly can't go wrong with the Opinel...they are fantastic knives.
