^^ Best knife ever, all those other guys are jokes.

I have a leatherman multi tool and just a simple gerber single blade. The thing to take a picture of would be the WWII German bayonet, pretty nice knife. Anyone have some more balisongs?

Nope. The blade says Imperial, PROV R.I. at the base. On the other side it says PAT. NOS. 20379432170537. To my knowledge, the knife is very old, as it belonged to my great grandfather who would be over 100 by now. I don't know if it is of any monetary value.

You aren't supposed to use them for prying lol. That is a screwdriver's job.

I made it through Boy Scouts with all four corners on my Totin Chit intact, dude.
The first tip broke off while I was whittling down a peg for a piece of mortise and tenon furniture. The second broke while I was trying to cut a thick sisal rope.
Kershaws are decent knives, but the tip is too thin and the edge too fine to be a work knife.


For sharpening, I have a Lansky sharpening kit. I use the 25* angle for a more durable edge.

Odd, my Kershaw has shown quite a resilient tip.

That Storm has a much broader blade than the Leek, Scallion, and Chive, and the taper across the thickness of the blade starts closer to the tip, so it would be a bit harder to de-tip it.
I'm not insulting Kershaw or anything, I just beat up my knives, and the Ken Onion series isn't really meant for that. On the other hand, when I had them, I was driving flat-bed for a living, and they'd go through a tensioned 4" nylon strap like butter. They were also the only knife I've used that cut shrink-wrap without having it stick to the blade. But using them on wood or hard substances would nick the edge, and eventually broke the tip. My Gerber doesn't carry as fine an edge, but it stays sharp just as long and I can use it a bit rougher. I have no reservations about sticking it wrist-deep in a deer while dressing, because I don't have to worry about tipping it on a bone.

If I just wanted a casual folder to use for everyday tasks, I'd've kept the Leek. I need a work knife, so I carry my Skeleton. If I need to chop brush, I use a machete, for trees I use an axe. It's all about what you use it for.

I'm not exactly harsh on knives, but I use it to carve wood quite often. I know you aren't insulting them, I just wonder how you manage to destroy them like that.

I would think it has some monitary value, not a regularly seen knife. I had one like it for years and cant find it now. Maby I'll get lucky and find it. Wonderfull for scaling and cleaning fish.

I'm not sure that I would want to sell the knife, but it's always good to know your stuff is worth something!

A man SHOULD have a decent knife. :)

I've been carrying this one afield for closing on 20 years. (I can't believe it's been that long. :shock: )
