That Wharncliffe sure seems to be a success.

I've buckled and created a profile on The Knife Guy. @hardy as the creator of this thread I'm holding you fully responsible! My hopefully first of a few is on order. The Honeybadger Wharncleaver it is.

So my parcel arrived this morning with a CRKT Pilar and a Kershaw Static.. These knives are works of art, I'm almost afraid to use them however I can see the Pilar being my new favourite biltong knife..

I got this recently. Don't know if its good or bad but it sure is pretty.



See it is called Hunter Pro
https://www.victorinox.com/global/en/Products/Swiss-Army-Knives/Large-Pocket-Knives/Hunter-Pro-M-Alox/p/0.9415.M26

Where did you buy it?

I've got one of these also. My wife bought it for me while she was on a business trip to Switzerland. I think it's called the "Hunter". It's a big, solid knife. The scales are solid aluminium alloy. The blade length is about 12cm. It locks very positively. I haven't seen them for sale in SA yet. It comes with a quality Ripstop type pouch. Either this knife or my Kershaw Black Gulch are my EDC knives.
'69 Model.

Ok so I will pull in here as well.

Most of these knives belonged to my late father. He worked for Volkskas, later ABSA, for 30 years. Most he got as gifts from clients.
Some he gave away, some he kept.

Most of these knives have no value, except sentimental value. My mother brought them to my house this evening, with the wish that I give them to my various nephews on their birthdays. Incidentally, I posted about this earlier in the thread. Coincidence that she came around with the knives this evening.

Some of my own knives are also in here.


Lets start with some parraslagters.
Top one is sturdy as hell, and heavy too. Blade is nice and sharp.
Middle looks like a POS.
Bottom one is mine. Was given to me by Sam from VGK arms in Parow for assisting them at Huntex a couple of years ago. I managed a wine estate where Huntex was held. So its got sentimental value. Use it for hunting, but I prefer my big Kershaw for that. Later more about the Kershaw.

Next up is couple of decent folders.
Two Joseph Rodgers among them.
The top one is handmade. Was given to my dad decades ago by someone in Keimoes/Kakamas. The actually lost the knife for a couple of years, and found it again under the seat of a car he sold to my uncle, then bought back after a long time. His favourite knife.

Pity the photo blurred a bit.
Also a close up of the three John Benzens. Dont know if its decent knives. Looks sturdy. Like working knives.

Next is another mixed batch.
Top Kershaw is my hunting knife. I know you dont hunt with a folder. But I can open it with one hand, it's big, sharp, and has a lot of blood on it. Can tell a few stories. Got it from my brother in law.

Another smaller Kershaw, and some others. The bottom one is a rather nice knife to hold and look at.

I have NO idea what the story is behind these three knives.

Small knife for scale.

Did I mention my dad worked for Volkskas?
He must have given away hundreds of these Victorinox knives. Luckily, he kept a few.


And lastly, my EDC. Also Victorinox.
I have lost two of them in the last 15 years. And always I get the same one as replacement. This one my wife bought me a year ago when I lost one I carried for +-10 years.

The whole shebang.

Most of them will go to the boys in the extended family (there are quite a few...) over the next couple of years.

The courier came knocking yesterday.

Is it normal for the invoice to look like this soon after opening?

The middle knife you refer to here is a Mundial. They were (are?) made in Argentina. Good quality carbon steel blade, but the pommel was aluminium and the handle plastic. If you are not attached to that knife, I'd love to buy it off you. My late brother had one just like that when we were kids. Or, I'll swap it for a another knife.

The John Benzen knives have an American sounding name, but they are Chinese. You can buy them from Crazy Store, so my guess is they not great... I've bought a few over the years and given them away as gifts to my trackers. None of them have ever complained, and they used to work them hard.
