Folding knives & fixed blades - a thread for the enthusiasts
« on: January 25, 2020, 08:53:49 pm »
I know there are other knife threads that has been posted before, but I would like to start a thread specifically on folding knives. This includes:
Fixed Blades
Folders
Slipjoints
Karambits
Out the Front (OTF)
Swiss Knives and other Multi tools.

Hopefully this thread will grow into a resourceful platform, where we all will learn from each other. I am not sure if this thread can be used to sell or swap knives, but I am sure admin wont have a problem with that - @Kilroy
Please show off your favorite EDC (Everyday Carry Knife) when you comment.
Thanks

3. Chris Reeve knives
4. Spyderco
5. Pohl Force
6. Bastinelli Creations
7. Fox knives

Hardy, I bought this a long time ago, no name on the knife but looks like
tanto type blade with thumb opening knurled knobs for one handed use and styled to look like
military type knife you would find on a marine/soldier. Fits very nicely into the hand.

Vir baie jare dra ek nou al elke dag hierdie cheapie saam met my. Ek het drie van hulle, maar twee is veilig gebÍre vir wanneer hul dag kom.

As ek die geld kan hÍ van die hoeveelheid springbok biltong wat hy al gekerf het en voersakke wat hy al oopgesny het dan was ek n ryk man. Ek het wel n Lamb Foot wat iemand my persent gegee het, maar gebruik hom nie ,want ek is te bang ek verloor hom.

PS: ek het my post ge edit ek het n Real Lamb Foot en nie n Joseph Rogers. :deal:

Ja nee Chris - Die' messe is darem wragtig goeie waarde vir geld gewees. Ek glo dat vandag se jong seuns / manne hulself doodskrik, as jy vir hulle 'n Victorinox/Okapi/ Joseph Rodgers messie gee as 'n geskenk.
Ek stuur vir jou 'n klein Leatherman (Jy het eerste jou mes gepost op die thread :thumleft:) as 'n geskenk.
Geniet hom :laughing4:

Sommer net n storie van ons familie se kinners se jongdae

N instelling het gevorm toe 3 van die jongmanne se ouderdomme gewissel het tussen 10 en 3

As ons gaanwild kamp moes hul help vuur maak, stap stokke sny om spinnerakke weg te vee uit die bospaadjies, skerpioene wegjaag ens
Natuurlik ook stokke sny vir stokbrood en marshmallows braai.

So het hul geleer om met n mes te werk en self liefde vir messe ontwikkel

Hier gedurende die grootdae wat nou verby is probeer ek met my sukkelende dom hande (Carpal tunnel sindroom)iets sny, so gebeur dit dat ek na my toe sny, Simon nou n wereldwyse Stellies student het nader gestaan die mes saggies uit my hand geneem en saggies gesÍ kan ek help......

Mens sny mos nie na jou toe, soos oom ons geleer het

Manne ek was sommer trots en hartseer so op die selfde tyd

Dankie vir die deel. Wat se mes dra jy deesdae, @Vuurmaker ? Ek hoop die Carpal Tunnel storie kom reg.

Ja, dit is vir 'n tegnologiese gestremde persoon soos ek hartseer om te sien dat jong seuns baie meer belangstel in die nuutste telefoon, I-pad ens, instede van 'n blinknuwe sakmes.
Jong, ek ht by my oupa grootgeword en die ou man was verskriklik erg oor netheid op voertuie,vuurwapens en messe.
Hy het gereeld inspeksies gedoen op al die plaas se wapens en dan sommer ook gekyk of ek my mes ordentlik onderhou.
Hy het my ook vertel dat jy nie vir 'n vriend 'n mes gee sonder om 'n muntstuk in ruil daarvoor te kry nie. Blykbaar lei die legende dat jou vriendskap met die persoon skade sal lei, as die mes gratis gegee word - vandaar die muntstuk storie.
Enigeiemand anders al die storie gehoor?

Karoo Rider gee vir sy twee seuns messe vir verjaarsdae en kersfees sodat hulle n mes collection kan opbou en dalk later soos hulle ouer word self kan begin messe aanskaf.

Dankie vir die geskenk Hardy, word waardeer. :thumleft:
