I'll start...

Pictured below is one of my favorite fixed blades...a Hen & Rooster Bowie...made with a 10" Solingen German steel blade and topped with 5" of Stag Horn for the handle.

Buck Knives

The quinessential blade from your childhood...a Buck Knife. How many here started their collections with this staple from the past...and how many will hand down an heirloom from their father to their son or daughter...the first knife in many a young persons hands.

This Buck was given to me by my Father on my 10th Birthday...the first of many fine edged weapons in my collection...

Buck Knives

Here's another Buck knife that I purchased while on TDY ( Travel Duty ) for the DoD in San Diego, California. I would always pick up a pocket knife and a Zippo lighter from each destination I visited...

Bayonets

M1942 16" bayonet for my Springfield Armory M1 Garand ( circa 1944 )



==================================================================

M1959 6H3 bayonet for my Yugoslavian AKMS (circa 1970)



The blade forms a wire-cutting device when coupled with its scabbard. The polymer grip and upper part of the scabbard provide insulation from the metal blade and bottom part of the scabbard to safely cut electrified wire.

==================================================================

M7 bayonet for my M4 carbine ( circa 1980 )



==================================================================

K-BAR modified by my deceased friends' Dad...a USMC Lance Cpl during WWII ( circa 1943 )

Boker AK74

And I picked this one up in California...Carmel By the Sea, where Clint Eastwood did a stint as Mayor for a few years...

A Kalishnikov AK74 commemorative...spring operated folder...made by Boker



...with AK "magazine" box



===============================================================

(From the ad inside the box...)

Named for the creator of the legendary AK-47 assault rifle, Mikhail Timofeevich Kalishnikov, and designed in Germany by Dietmar Pohl, the Boker Automat Kalashnikov 74 automatic knife boasts excellence in craftsmanship. This is your industrial strength switchblade knife ready for daily use.

The blade of this automatic knife, which resembles the bayonet used on the AK-74, is factory sharpened and capable of shaving hair off your arm, and it has a violently strong spring that locks the blade tight and fast upon every press of the release button.

The handle of the Boker Kalashnikov 74 switchblade is made of lightweight T-6 6061 aircraft aluminum that has been treated to a black, textured powder coating providing, not only a secure, comfortable grip, but it also helps to subdue glare and minimizes reflected light. The blade has been bead blasted to a glare reducing matte finish, making this a great covert/black-ops tool!

In addition, this automatic knife also features a pocket clip, and a lanyard hole! It even comes in a custom display box that resembles an AK-47 magazine!

Overall Length :7.75"
Blade Length: 3.25"
Handle Material: Black powder coated T-6 6061 Anodized Aircraft Aliminum
Blade Material: Bead Blasted AUS 8 Stainless Steel
Blade Style: Drop Point (serrated)

Survival Knife

Here's a pretty good survival knife I used when camping in the woodlands of Pennsylvania...

It has the prerequisite compass in the handle, and when checked aqainst a real good one, was true. Also the hollow handle has a saw line and fishing line with a few hooks, as well as some waterproof matches. With the sheath and wet stone, it's not too shabby. I make sure I keep it extra sharp...

Throwing Knives

Every once in a while I venture out back and hone my knife throwing skills with a few of these and a couple of round tree cuts that I put I-hooks in and hang from a tree, close to a safe backdrop...my wife says I scare the neighbors...;)

Pocket Folders are a Kershaw Vipor and a Remington.
The Bowie is a Spec-Plus Raider made by Ontario Knife Co. - USA
The Straight Blades are a Timber Rattler and a BUCK USA.
