sadly true most of the knife business has shifted to china but some of the chinese are making excellent at par knifes with the quality of the original makers. i have even seen extremely cheap chinese with excellent steel in blade. if this schrade is made with 7 cr 17 then it will be a very flexible and for givong knife, 12cr27 is its elder brother with 4 times the quality of steel which only few factories can make in world. this is a hollow ground dual bevel medium tang blade designed purely for hunting purposes and its blade was designes to take hide off of a carcass as well as cut the meat easily. the sharpening blade is just an emergency sharpener for wilderness when u just have to give the blade some strokes if felt dull. but these steels have a tendency to keep on sharpening with use sort of like an auto sharpener steel. a very very beautiful and practicl knife for hunting or in other word one of the best knifes for using on big game and fish alike. Surely the handler will be amazed at its magic on meat.

btw: i hope when sharpenong time comes it is sharpened on good quality sharpening stones.

This is a good knife but Schrade is more impressive I think.

Have you tried to TING it on a harder surface, secondly it says here that it is a 440A steel, which holds its sharpness but it gets used quickly. I mean when you start to use it more you will need to sharpen it and it will lose metal a bit faster than its cousin 440C. On the other hand 440C gets dull faster and harder to sharpen; this gets sharpened less and a lot easier to sharpen. good Rockwell hardness put into it but seems a bit too much for such steel. Nevertheless it is an excellent pocket knife for normal use such as fishing... or small animal hunting. Clip point hollow ground blade which will really be helpful in going through chunks of meat.

MOUTH watering knife selection you people have.

These are collector knives, although they have a pretty sharp blade too. But we did not buy them for their quality of steel. The look good I guess. :D

Image

Franklin Mint collection knives.... These are made in China but very well made.



Image
Small replicas of Colt SAA "Peacemaker" and Colt 1849 "Pocket Pistol" revolvers.



Image
Pheasant and Labrador knives. Oh the Labrador knife reminds me of Hardy :(



Image
And each knife comes in a nice carry case which looks more like a padded protection case.

No one seems to be interested in your knives. So here are some of my knives which might spark some interest amongst the members.....

Image

This is Bear.N.Bull Damascus steel knife. The steel is tested with 58-60 hardness on rocknwell scale and the knife is Made in Canada.

Image

The knife is quite sharp. I like the girp, made of stag horn.

Image
I like the simple yet elegant looking leather sheath.


Image
Image
And this is a Pakistan manufactured damascus steel knife. These knifes, made in Pakistan, are quite common in USA and Canada. The knife is quite well made and the steel also seems to be good. There were other Pakistani knives made of 440C steel which were very good looking and sharp.

Image
Comes with a genuine leather sheath and is nicely made.

The damascus steel knives are quite sharp, specially the Bear.N.Bull knife. The Franklin knives are also good and can be used for small birds during hunting but we intend keeping them in our collection.

After Atiq sb refused to give me one of this tanto blade :( i went searching for a nice sturdy tanto folder. I asked a few friends and was recommended a shop in saddar. The shopkeeper was a pretty smooth dealer and kept showing me chinese copies, which somehow dint please me alot. After alot of rejections I decided to call it a day and walk off. Upon seeing that, he then reached under the counter and brought up these three peices. The one below was boker, very hard blade, I was not sure about the grade of steel, but it felt alot solid than the chinese he was showing me before. The locking mechanism though manual, was very sturdy, with no play and the locking pin locked firmly upon opening. It could be one of the better copies from china but the blade is strong and very sharp (i shaved 2 inches of hair from leg with it, just as a test, I DO NOT SHAVE LEGS AS REGULAR PRACTICE, this warning was for people like Unclejee, and babajee and mianjee who can turn the most innocent of things into nasty jokes :) )

The one of top was branded Extreme Knives, though i have never heard of the company, the knife again seemed solid, the blade strong and had a sleek look, with a automatic spring assissted opening system. The blade not as sharp (Atiq bhai :D ) but would make for a quick opening strong everyday carry knife. The blade as seen is plain, with no serrations or rib. The best part is everything on the knife is made of metal including the grip making it slightly heavy but the weigth doesnt seem to bother me.

The third knife surprised me the most. Its actually very very solid. Made from a single peice, the blade and the handle (the grip is a weaved cord, i dont remember what that is called). The blade is very sharp (tried it on the other leg and the same warning applies here as well) and coated with a tiger stripe pattern of very heavy duty paint. Came with a sheath and allows belt carry or leg carry. The brand was Strider. I request atip bhai to inspect them closely and then comment about the knives hopefully today. But all in all i am happy with the additions to the collection.

BTW: is there anyone from Wazirabad or someone who will accompany me to search the town for knifes. I WILL make a trip to search out good knife makers there.



Thanks for the above links. They have beautiful Damascus Steel knives.

My friend resides in Wazirabad (been resident there for 50+yrs) and we were there a few weeks back. I'll ask him about knife makers there.


Found this Wazirabad company, they state layers & hardness on some knives .. http://www.classicdamascus.com/index.php

& some info http://www.cashenblades.com/damascus.html

There are 3 dealers I know htere. Muhammad Ali who also has a stall in DHA's Sunday Bazaar and Noor Khan. and a 3rd chap whose name I forgot.

We generally go to Noor Khan since he gives pretty good rates.

Do you have to make an effort to make dealers not like you? Do you like practice at home for this or is this a pure natural talent you have ED?
