Daar is baie bywoorde en byvoeglike naamwoorde om daardie Eric Els skepping te beskryf. Mooi is sekerlik een daarvan. Daai ou mag maar.

As jy na my mes foto kyk wat my pel gemaal het - dis baie die ou se styl wat ek laaik. Drop point met sterk bolster. Ek laaik neels se designs.

Eks vol kak met B&T mes. Dit moet n delicate mes wees. Baie maak dit te dik en groot.

My vereistes

Salt water resistant steel
It must be able to fillet fisk.  Trout, so flexible blade.
I dont like it too pointy. Slightly rounded to the front. 
Ivory works great for grip.
Gut hook is a nice addition
4-6 inches blade
Makes more practical sense in a folder. Around neck when wading and running after a stubborn retriever in reeds

I’ll post some pics

Ok, B&T designs

Eerste foto, net die boonste een
Tweede foto, bo heel links (lem moes net langer wees) , 5de van regs - lem seker die laaste, maar like nie die grind nie. Te veel van n rug
Onder 5de van regs, maar dis iets anders

So mengsel tussen n fillet en pairing mes met meer ronde punt. In n folder.

I dont have a huge collection since I'm always handing it out as presents but these ones are special to me and for the exception of the folded Victoria Knox which I got as a present at 2011 WD bash - engraved and all I am using them.
Yes my Learherman wave plus gets used most as well as my Gerber but i use all of them.
SOG seal pub my favorite second to the CRKT M16 Iraqi edition.

Nee, ek het blykbaar n agricultural cast motion :imaposer:  its tussen n fit en n speedqueen wasmasjien.  Ek vang egter vis. See vis. Ek waardeer die skill though. Wens ek kon.

Nee nee dis nie my messe nie.  Dus B&T messe wat ek al lank na kyk om my design reg te kry.  Ek steel maar so met die oog

Die een is ook naby. Sien hy moet bietjie van punt he om vis en voel se vel te pierce, maar nie n moerse een wat alles stukkend sny nie. Sy blade is weer bietjie te breed en ek reken nie genoeg flex nie

My collection of knifes throughout the years.  At 1st I collected whatever I could, nowadays I am more specific.  I have plenty cheapies and some more expensive, but to me there is no such a thing like a crap knife, anything with a blade will do for me.  I also need to mention, that I use my knifes, not all the time, but they get used and some has done some hard labour throughout their live with me.  I believe whatever you buy or get must be used, not abused, used.   

So, let’s start with my Leatherman collection.
1 and 2  -  You will see the following:
Super Tool 200.  Got this one from my daughter, she bought it in England in 2002 fir next to nothing. 
Surge
MUT
Wave
Wingman
Freestyle
Sidekick
2 X Micra’s, one old and one a newer version
Style Juice
Skeletool

3  -  My DOW collection
1 X Fixed blade and 7 different folding knifes.  Some need serious attention. 

4  -  My 3 Joseph Roger’s

5  -  2 Kaliber’s

6  -  3 X Different sizes of the old and trusted OKAPI.

7  -  My Kershaw Collection
2 X Folding knifes
1 x Kitchen set with 6 blades
1 X Kitchen set with 3 blades

8  -  My special Kershaw
