  • @mimozine I really like your collection of fixed blades. Some really nice unusual looking knifes. :thumbup:



    Couple of my big ones...


    Jim Bowie Knife replica ~ not sure how accurate it is thought tbh but I like it because it's huge (next to my Swiss Champ SAK for size c
    omparison)




    A fantasy Knife I bought from a local gun shop ~ not a decent brand or anything but again I like it because it's got a long blade.


    ;)

  • thx gmb, glad you liked them.


    fairly sure jim bowies knife looked nothing like that matey, but its a nice looking blade all the same. doesn't mater about brand if you like a knife matey, yes hand made knives in the latest shiny steel can be great but so can a 5 quid knife in the sale, its all about what you like the look of, just enjoy them!

    Thanks mimozine and I do enjoy all my knives.


    This is the first knife collectors forum I've ever been a part of and tbh I'm surprised at how much some of the people on here spend on knives.


    Don't get me wrong as I love collecting knives, have spent a lot of money on knives over the years myself and understand the importance of decent materials but I would never consider spending over £200 on a little slip joint folder or other small pocket knife for example.


    I enjoy restoring knives which started because a lot of the knives I've bought were used as I bought them from jumble sales/car boots. Looking forward to seeing what I can find this year, ...maybe if I get lucky some nice fixed blades like you've got. :love:;)
