So until we can get the appropriate forum section up and going, let's see some pictures other than guns. Let's see what everyone EDCs in terms of cutlery. Show us your most reliable, most often turned to cutters to handle what your firearms aren't cut out for.

I'll start.



Thanks for permissive laws in the sunflower state, it's perfectly legal to openly carry a bowie knife on your belt. And this is mine. For those unfamiliar with it, this is the Becker BK9 made by the KA-BAR company. Much like Enfields and Webleys, it's all that pretty, but damn if it isn't functional.

Seriously? Nobody has anything to add? Am I alone in the sharp pointy things club?

Interesting that you mention Enfields and Webleys, which I happen to find to be mighty handsome firearms, as the fixed blade is English manufactured. It is a Sheffield Survival Knife that I have owned for 30 plus years. It is a well and hard used piece. Very dependable. Takes and holds an edge well. As my wife will attest as a few years back she nearly removed one of her fingers cutting kindling.
The folder is a Kershaw Junkyard Dog. I carry this one all the time. I have owned and used it for 5-6 years.
I have two others that I will get pictures of later.

Oh wow. That Sheffield knife is a seriously rough, primitive looking piece. I love it. That thing looks almost as stout as one of my Beckers.

And here are the other two. The piece on top is a Herter's skinning/hunting knife. I got this from my dad in 1978. That knife is 50 plus years old.
The bottom unit is a Western Boot Knife. I bought that in 1979 when I joined the U.S. Army.
I still do use both though sparingly. Especially the Herter's.

Believe it or not the local pawn shop occasionally gets that same Western boot knife in stock, but it's almost always snapped up before I ever get the opportunity to buy it for myself.

Yep I can not believe first off that Western is no more and secondly what crazy people are wanting for one of these knives. I mean it is indeed and excellent knife but still...
I had and carried an original KA-BAR leather handled (fighting knife?) that I gave to one of my younger brothers back in the mid 1980's.

Just now stumbled onto this thread. Becks, what sort of material do you have slipped over the handle of that Becker? And how did you get it over the swell at the back?
Bicycle inner tube, otherwise known as a ranger band. It stretches wide enough to be slipped over the swell, but you have to fight it the whole way down to get it.

Gonna depend largely on the size and shape of the handle. I can get a ranger band over an Ontario machete handle it I work at it, and that's a tough fight with the hump it's got on the butt.
