Very nice, Cord! Are those Wolverine-type claws with the brass knuckles on the second page? I have Gil Hibben blade that a student gave me as a gift a while back.

And, to be off-topic and totally inappropriate, your wife is HOT! If she's got a sister, give her my email, man!!!! wink

Yep smile its called a 'Pantera Claw' and it is a design by custom Knifesmith Tom Anderson. This one is part of a 5000 production run by Master Cutlery (I think, though it might be United Cutlery). Its a really meaty Aluminium knuckle, with 3x 10 inch stainless blades protruding from it. Not technically a 'functional' weapon, but I wouldnt want to be swiped with it - it cuts thick cardboard like warm butter cool

Yes, my wife is insanely hot, and she thanks you for the compliment. I am afraid she is a one off though, her parents didnt go into mass production wink

Take Wolverine's andamantium skeleton + claws, mix it with Xavier's intelligence and deadpool's madness, and put combine them into the hulk and you get...

DAVE LOYD!

On a more serious note however;

I've noticed you have many classic like fairbarne sykes styled knife, and the one invented by that guy who did the movie 'The Hunted' with Tommy Lee Jones. Also saw a kukhri!

But the best of 'em all.. a swiss army knife! The versatility!

I'll have to check that out when I get on my home computer and befriend you as well.

As for my armory, it's more of longer range type stuff you guys probably aren't allowed to have unfortunately.

Fixed that for you, but thanks for the compliment wink

Re the knives, you are absolutely right. The Tom Brown Tracker (Hunted movie), was a real stroke of luck, as it retails around 240, and I got it unused off of ebay for 75 !!. It is a very heavy duty knife, and to be honest, I quite like to use it to cut back the bushes and thick foliage in the garden. It holds a great edge, but has zero stabbing ability, so despite how the movie portrayed it, it was never designed to be a fighting knife. It throws well though, but you have to throw like a hatchet, not a knife, as you want the belly to strike wood, not the point for a deep bed and guaranteed stick.

Most of my blades are 'Drawer queens' in that some have not even cut paper, and are collected for aesthetic value and the pleasure of ownership alone. The movie replica's are prime examples of this.

For a functional blade, I have come to trust carbon steel over stainless every time in any blade over 4 inches long. They take more care (cleaing, oiling etc), but for robust use, and on the spot re-honing I dont think you can beat it as a material.

My swiss army knife is something I always carry. A lot of the guys at work prefer leatherman style multitools, but I just find them bulky, and you can't get the ease of rotation in the screwdrivers on them. Also, my swiss army has a relatively large 4 inch blade, allowing enough edge for proper cutting. Multitools just dont have that, so I find them inferior for purpose.

My Pride and joy on their is my self designed, forged to order Bowie. A lot of thought went into that knife, and it is a serious piece of kit.

Next up is a John fitzen knife. Not sure if we will go for the Tank or the Bulldog, but either way, they are serious knives.
