    Have some of them. Dont ask my why, but I just love to sharpen knives, I have a couple of sharpening stones and love spending some time with my knives getting them real sharp. I have a knife that was a present my grandfather brother gave me, real old thing, but nice and still good enough. I have it stored in my gun case, and dont use it any more, I am keeping it as a souvenir. I use a regular hunting knife with fixed blade, dont remember the brand, but it is light and very sharp.
    Looking forward to get this one: Gerber LMF II Survival Knife Coyote Brown 22-01400

    I have used a Kershaw folding drop point lockback since the mid-80's, but bought a Outdoor Edge Swingblade over the summer. Used it on an elk and deer this year and love it.

    An Ol Schrade with a simulated bone handle bought for me the year my first daughter was born. 1982, *Rule 4 Violation* thing has gutted a lotta elk n deer and one big ol bull moose. Goood memories

    I've added a few since then, a Simonich custom , and two Dave Tobel customs, oh and a Buck RMEF. All great knives.

    i would say this is my favorite to date.

    i'm with you misfire. i make my own also.

    you do some really nice work. reminds of of a dozier in some ways. they look very ergonomic. i bet they're good in the hand in just about any grip.

    have you tried any of the new CPM D2? you'll love it, better performance, and easier to work with
