    Excellent collection of knives, Ralph - and a great display.
    Some real beauties in there ! I instantly recognised
    the Ek Commando and Mikov.........

    The price of the SOG 'S1' Bowie has always been up there, and likely why I don't
    have one as yet. Most SOG knives are made in Taiwan and China these days,
    which kind of bothers me, as I had a tough time dropping large amounts
    of money on the Japanese made knives (which are superior) when they
    first came out in the 80's. The quality of the new product is nowhere
    near as good, IMO.........


    I know, what you mean.

    I would prefer an original.

    The modern ones just dont compare.





    rbminis - I never understood the intense FLAK that is hurled towards Cold Steel.
    They make some nice knives, that work.
    Some I like more than others.

    I wish, I had kept my CarbonV SRK, but I was badgered into trading it for an EK.
    I see you have an EK too - Ive always had a soft spot for the EKs. They are simple and seem very businesslike.

    Is that a CS Trailmaster or Recon Scout partly seen in pic number two?
    I like both far better than some of their newer Bowie offerings i.e the Natchez.

    Thanks Steve!
    I have another EK, bowie blade with black cord wrapped handle. The Mikov was given to me by the fellow that makes the damascus that I use for my minis. He felt it would be more appropriate if in the hands of a collector as he does not collect, only makes.

    Mikov - not too common. My Ek is a M5 Bowie - but it's double edged
    with micarta grip panels.

    I also just noticed a horse head puukko, and a US M3
    with early leather sheath.........!

    Scout,
    I still like some of the newer Cold Steel products. About the only ones I wouldn't mind still getting are maybe the Military Classic or the Tai Pan.
    The bowie in the photo is the Carbon V Trailmaster.

    Well I no longer feel like I have to many knives ! After seeing your collections ! Great displays , they put knife stores to shame . I kinda lost some respect for SOG now that you can buy them at Canadian Tire . I also had a Cold Steel folding tanto but lost it . Maybe it will turn up in a sofa sometime . Great stuff , and thanks for showing .

    Steve,
    There are really quite a few different makers and models in there if you look closely. I estimate my collection of edged weapons, including the ones that I make, at aproximately 700, give or take.
    Here is a photo of both EK's and two Gerbers.

    Lol - I can see you have quite a few Ralph, and I think I must have
    about 1/3rd of that. Love those two Ek knives !

    Here's my Mikov - it is wicked sharp ! They are rather
    cheaply constructed, but very robust.........
