I know there are quite a few gun collectors and shooters on this forum. So, I assume there are also a few knife-knuts here, also. The two often go together.
I'm a Benchmade fan. I never liked the model 710 very much, until Knifeworks commissioned a special edition designated as the 710-1401. The regular 710 is a fairly big pocket knife, about 9" in overall length, with black g10 handles and a D2 tool steel blade. Liked the overall design, but didn't care for the D2 blade, or the flat black g10 handle. Then, Benchmade started building a 710 with nicely contoured blue and black layered g10 handles and an open frame design. They also mated that handle with Bohler M390 blade steel. The combination is absolute perfection, in my opinion. I bought two.
When I heard that Benchmade discontinued the 710, I looked all over the internet for them, just to see if it was true. Not a one to be found, anywhere. So, I checked Knifeworks website and they were out, too, but they still had some special edition models left. I ordered another one, just to get it while it was still there. That's how much I like this blasted knife.
Any other collectors out there in GiM land who like Benchmade, or the 710 model? If you do, get one of the 710-1401's while you can. They're $179.95. It's a good deal, in my opinion, with the M390 steel and layered g10 handle.

I love knives Sonsir. I hunt flea markets every Saturday looking for deals on American or German made folders.

My latest score was a case mini copperlock with barnwood figured bone scales. It was in a glass box surrounded by China junk, paid 12 bucks for it. An 09 model.

I've got a small collection going, yet to have a benchmade though. Nice knives.

Holy smokes! A nice old Case, bone-scaled knife for 12 bucks. You did good. I never had much of a Case collection, though I collected Toothpicks for awhile. I mostly like tactical-style folders. Benchmade, Spyderco and the like. I do have some nice gentleman's style pocket folders, too. You can't pull out a 9" knife around the sheeple. They get scared.

This one here I bought last summer from a local thrift store. It was sitting in a glass case with a piece of paper saying "vintage hand made knife and sheath 1970's"

Of course I dont know if any of that is true but to my eye the sheath alone was worth the asking price of 40 dollars.

20170605_120643.jpg


Full tang but no stamp to speak of. Brass and some sort of dark exotic wood with golden striped undertones for the handle.

Some amateur scratched the blade some trying to sharpen it. But it's like a razor now, feels so good in hand. I carry it on occasions.

That's very nice. Well put together. I'm surprised there's no maker's mark on it, even if he's relatively unkown. There are a lot off guys out there, though, that nobody's ever heard of that make some really nice blades.

My small knife collection.

Remington bullet knives - I have nearly all the year models that have been made. Started collecting them back in the 1980's.

Michael Morris Knives (Michigan knife maker) - I have five different models. (Pictures found for two of the models I have)







Benchmade Knives - I like them a lot however 10 years ago their pocket clips were IMO poorly made and I lost 2 out of the 3 Benchmade folders I purchased. The problem with the pocket clips may have since been corrected. The one I still have is the following Elishewitz 3-1/2 tonto blade

I never had any problems with Benchmade clips, so far. I had a CRKT knife that both clip screws backed out and the clip fell off. Luckily, the knife just fell down in my pocket. Well, it was only a $35 knife. No big loss, if it hadn't slipped down in my pocket.
Those fixed blade knives. Do you take them out in the field, or are they collector pieces?

I use the knives, not hard, but as needed. I like the Morris knives so much I kind of went wild and bought all 5 in 2010.

I have one of each in a 6”, 7” and 8” overall length blade (all similar to the profile of the 8” Classic Hunter shown in the top picture). In addition to the MAC 10.5” (bottom picture), I also have a neck knife that was made per my request.

I use the 6” the most. The MAC 10.5 always has a place in my survival bag.

FYI Morris knives are high carbon tool steel (all made from files annealed to mid-50s rockwell) so they do require oil for maintenance and after use.

if at all interested see the video segment on Morris knives starting at the 11:03 minute mark.

My everyday carry for the last couple of years is the Benchmade 520. Love it.
The Presidio. Nice knife. I've never had one of those. I'm a 940 fan and 710 fan, of course. I have five different versions of the 940. Two different titanium models, one with carbon fiber, one with black g10 and the Knifeworks special edition version with layered black/blue g10, like their 710 model. Other than those and my 710's I've got one of the mini titanium monolocks and two old 875 Sentinels, almost twenty years out of production. Those are my keepers. I've had quite a number more that were "catch and release" knives. Did not like them enough to keep them. Benchmade has designed and produced many nice, high quality knives and produced many designer models over the years. Good company, good products, great service.

My only question to Mr. Hoback would be, what do astronauts need a big folding knife for? Unless they expect some unfriendly Klingons to stop by.

Nick's Quick Tips: How to spot a Spyderco Factory Second
Nick Shabazz


Published on Jun 20, 2017
Today, a quick tip showing off the Spyderco Factory Second Notch. Not too crucial, but good to know :)
Interesting. I'm not much of a Spyderco collector. I only have four, but it's a nice fact to know, if you buy one on the secondary market. Good vid. Short and sweet.

I've got several Benchmade knives and it happens that this 710 is my everyday carry knife. The blade on this version is made from Austrian M390 "super" steel. In other words, it stays sharp a long time.

Hey! Fantastic TomD. I was beginning to wonder if anyone else even knew about this knife. I love mine. They carry easily and the darn things are so well built. They only weigh in at 3.6 ounces and there's so much blade and a nice, hand-filling g10 handle. Another aspect of the Knifeworks design that I really like is the open frame build. You don't get that on the original 710. Like I said in the OP, this version is what the 710 always should have been. The M390is top of the line blade steel and one of the things that makes this knife the perfect realization of this model and it has everything I always wanted in a large tactical folder. Thanks for the great post.

On around 70% of days I'll have the Benchmade 710 in my pocket, on most of the remaining days I'll have this Benchmade 15080. I'm pretty picky about my personal gear and don't like cheap stuff. To me, Benchmade hits the "sweet spot" of the price quality curve. As much as I would like to have a Sebenza, it simply wouldn't be worth $170-$180 more to me than my 710 or 15080 Benchmades.

This knife has a blade made from S30V steel, usually not my personal favorite but this blade sharpens easily and holds the edge better than other blades of the same steel that I have. I put a razor shaving edge on this a couple of months ago and it still shaves easily.

I've got a Kershaw knife with an S30V blade but I can't seem to do a thing with it.

I used to own Sebenza's and Mnandi's. After carrying them around for a number of months, I came to the same conclusion as you and put them up for sale on eBay. Same with William Henry's. I had a number of those and the price/quality ratio, as you called it just didn't add up.

Benchmade and Spyderco seem to both get that right. Benchmade, more so than anybody else in my opinion. Your 15080 is a nice looking knife. It's reminiscent of a Buck 110 in looks, but has the axis lock.

Well, I started this thread awhile back, but because my "not so smart phone" wasn't so smart, I wasn't able to post any photos. Fortunately, Searcher was kind enough to keep the thread going, posting videos along the way. Thanks Searcher. I think I might have my file to thread problems solved, though, so I'm going to attempt to post some nice photos of the Benchmade 710-1401, along with photos of other knives in the series, also. The first pics show the lines of this knife and the really attractive black and blue layered G-10 handles and the nice open pillared, flow-through design of the knife. Then, if everything goes well, I will post pics of the BM 810-1401 and the BM 940-1501. You will see the obvious similarities in materials and design elements, even though the 710 was designed by different people and the 810 and 940, though designed by the same guy, Warren Osborne (RIP), have different design purposes. Hope you enjoy the photos, providing they come through.
Thanks Searcher. Keep posting videos!

My photos, above, didn't come out in the order I wanted, as the 810 pics showed up in the middle of the 710 pics. But, they're there. The last four pics are all 940-1401. I thought, since this is working for me, I would post a few more BM 940 photos. These are of the current production 940-1, which I the beautiful carbon fiber version of this knife. Then, I'm going to post a few pics of the 940titanium version and the 940ti-01. The ti-01 has the polished titanium handles, with blued edges. All three are excellent knives and gorgeous to look at, if you're into knife porn.

The Plastic Sebenza: The Odd Story of a Profoundly Odd Prototype
Nick Shabazz


Published on Aug 27, 2017
Today, I'll show off an incredibly rare pocketknife, a prototype of the CRKT (Columbia River Knife and Tool) Sebenza, a cancelled collaboration with Chris Reeve Knives. In today's video, we're going to discuss the history of this little blast from the past and then take it apart to see how you might construct a plastic framelock.

More pictures: http://imgur.com/a/GyMcT
That's cool as hell. I've been collecting knives as long as I've been collecting guns and that's about thirty years now. I never knew this little unicorn existed. Even though it's extremely rare, though, I don't think I would want one in my collection. It's horrific. That plastic is more than likely zytel and I hate zytel. The blade, who knows what it is? That thing would break in a new York minute. No wonder Chris Reeve said, essentially, "No. Hell no!"

I collected Randalls for quite a long time. Favorite was the #1 Fighting Knife, hence the #1-8 in my user name.
Concentrated on WWII, Korean, & Viet Nam era knives. #'s 1, 2, 14, 15, 18.
Great knives.
Just have users now.

I have found a good inexpensive EDC knife. It is Kershaws Westin Model 3460

Since I seem to lose knives I have looked at lot of “less expensive” knives over the years and very few met expectations. I have mentioned previously that I have lost a couple of Benchmades and thus I am reluctant to buy anything expensive anymore.

Though the Kershaw Westin has been around for about a year, I first put hands on one at a gun show a month or so ago and purchased it for $35. I see you can get one online for around $25.

I like most everything about it as I really can’t say anything negative. There is nothing that feels cheap about the knife. It is a tip-up, deep pocket knife. All the knives I have owned previously, open with a thumb disk and wrist flip, so this is the first assisted opening knife I have owned and as I have got used to it I have to say I like it a lot. Solid lockup, good pocket clip so far (I seem to have pocket clip problems/issues), good stainless steel from what I understand, and I do not notice the knife when carrying it. Seriously, if made in China doesn’t turn you away, you can’t go wrong.

Here is a pretty good review of the knife

That was a good review. Informative and also lightly comedic. If a $25 pocket knife does everything you need it to do, or even most of what you need it to do, that's all you need. Especially if you tend to lose them. Losing a $200 BM knife would be a disturbing experience.

Having $200 plus knives is a collectors experience, mostly. I think one of the things that drives it is the idea of possessing value and quality. There's always the thought in the back of your head that, if you need to, you can sell that valuable knife and pay some bills, buy some groceries. That being all said, I've run around plenty with Benchmades, Spydercos and Chris Reeves in my pockets. I have yet (knock on wood) to lose one.

Wow! Spyderco is discontinuing the Nirvana model. At $443.00, I wonder why?

I bought wife unit some Wusthof and Zwilling German knives for Christmas. After doing some research I avoided the Japanese made because they have a tendency to chip. The blades are thinner and harder, but more brittle. They are also lighter, but I can also get lighter German knives if necessary. She is receiving a 6", 7", 8" & 3.5" paring knife. I chose the specific lines because they only have a half bolster which makes sharpening much easier.

A few years ago a good female friend received a set of pots and pans from her husband for Christmas. She wasn't a happy camper at all. When she told me about it she was beside herself. She also got a nice ring about a week later. Her husband told her he wanted to surprise her with something on New Year's. I think she let him know she wasn't happy with pots & pans.

Laughed my ass off about it when she told me.
Wife unit wanted one very nice knife because what we have now is old box store crap. I bought her a few really nice knives. She already has a very expensive ring that she cannot wear because she is reckless and already lost it once. I wonder if she will keep all 10 fingers after Christmas?

Figured this was as good a place as any to see if there's any interest.

I have a Limited Edition SOG Carbon Fiber Tomcat III San Mai (S95CF).
Mine is number 25 of only 300 made.
I'm looking to thin the herd and this is one I'd be willing to let go.
Please let me know if you have any interest.

Per the SOG website - When introduced in 1998 the Tomcat design won Overall knife of the year.

Blade length: 3.75"
Overall length: 8.65"
Weight: 6.5oz
Edge: Straight
Steel: VG-10 San Mai
Handle: Carbon Fiber
Finish: Satin
Sheath: Nylon

Mint, in the original box, with sheath, certificate of authenticity noting #25 of 300 produced and SOG product info paraphernalia.

These were listed at $370 on the SOG website when new. I did NOT pay that price and don't expect you to either.

Nick's take on the Upcoming Knife Releases for 2018
Nick Shabazz


Published on Jan 30, 2018
Today, now that the catalogs are out and the big show has passed, we'll talk about some of the new releases for 2018 from Benchmade, Spyderco, ZT, Kershaw, Lionsteel, Steel Will, Boker, Chris Reeve, and more, and give my first impressions. Thanks to KnifeNews.com for the footage!
Well, that's disappointing. Nick went through the new inventory of about a dozen knife makers and there was nothing that looked compelling enough for me to even consider adding to my collection. Maybe all the best design ideas and materials have already been done. How many ways can you design a knife, really?

The Millit Torrent 2nd Gen with Damasteel Overlay
Nick Shabazz


Published on Mar 17, 2018
Today, we'll take a close look at a brand new piece, the second generation Millit/TJ Schwarz Torrent, which has been turned up to 11.

Oh, thanks a pantload for posting that. So now I know about "damasteel" and won't rest easy until I buy yet another EXTREMELY expensive pocket knife. Wow, but those blades are beautiful and now they perform with the best of the super steels.

I like rustic Knives and handmade items. This knife I bought in Arizona or New Mexico made by a Navajo or Zuni Native American I believe the blade was made from a file. with copper bolster and deerhorn.The sheath looks to be hand stitched. I sharpen my knives with a lansky kit and use an old belt steel in leather sheath.
