Umer.. You really have a nice collection with you.. Have you tried to sharpen any of the knives to scary sharp level where you can shave with them???

@ Umer Awan.. it is a nice sharpener.. have used it.
I sharpen manually of whetstones.. and for me it is the same difference between such sharpeners and whetstones as is the difference between eating farmed chicken and eating Mallards hunted by you..
If you only knew what peace knife sharpening brings and joys it has...
Ask KBW.. SA, 6S and last but not the least ISK....

These are four of my knives that I recently got; two of them are survival knives on top with scandi grind and almost 4 mm thick spine in 440c steel from Norway. both the knives have different girps to balance the knife in usage and are geared more so towards the daily chores of cutting things up and shaving wood for fire and dressing meat. the thinner things of life..

The lower two are cleavers also for survival and made especially for the meat cutting, one is dual bevel flat grind with full tang; and other is convex grind with dual bevel also a full tang. Now the most important part of it all.. they are in 12c27 steel from Norway. This is for heavier work and is probably one of the best rugged knife i have held in my hands as far as steel is concerned. even though SA's CPM S30V is far far more superior steel than this but the design of dual bevel on these has made them more acceptable and useful in hunting and survival arena.

BTW: Full tangs knives is called to those knives which have metal throughout the spine and exposed on top and bottom of the grip section.

I wish i could show to everyone and let them handle the knives and feel the balance. The top two are so sharp without sharpening that they are shaving without sharpening done to them. The lower two have very very different grips; especially designed to make them front heavy with 60:40 ratio balanced at the choil area.

The two thinner knives are designed by me with the weight kept in mind; i.e. metal weight, balance of knife and the non tapering that effects it. Hardness has been taken to 58 on HRC scale. They are made by someone who produces high quality steel products for Heavy machinery and has complete machinery for heat treatment. He is also a Farigh Insaan like me (loiter person) and loves knives, so when his factory machines are not working he uses them for his passion. Any ways.. this design was altered from a design in a book by lloyd harding and exactly as per his notes.. His ideas that he wanted to do are implemented into this.

The main idea why i got these two made was to have a design in which we can use in daily life as well as in hunting and normal chores. I have named the design "Delicate Workhorse". The person who was working on grinding the bevel was continually saying that the bevel is wrong and that there should be Two bevels and that way it will be better.. when knife was finished from the belt grinder without going for sharpening; it was already razor sharp and shaving hair from FACE.. The whole factory was amazed at the SCANDI grind and HOW it is different from all the other knife designs. It seems to me that it is magical and absolutely abnormal. Any ways.. i have asked them to make couple of others in wooden grip ones.. UNLIKE the white one which is camel bone, buffalo horn, copper and leather used in making the grip.. The simpler the grip is; the cheaper it will be.. Some of the hunters have asked me for it and want me to make them the same thing in ribbing rubber or ribbing plastics. Now that is all i want to write about how these two blades came into being. Now anyone who wants them made?? price will be exactly what it COSTS, no profit but NO LOSS.

Rest of the two blades are a gift... and for a person who whenever goes to Dubai brings a laser range finder and wind meter for me.

Most importantly for the newbies into hunting: MARK my words and etch them into your life line... IF you become friends with hunters and go together on hunts.. you will have a friends who will stand in between you and the harm and you wont even know it. It is such a tightly knit community that it will be almost impossible to write down in words.

Got this Yukon knife today. Yokon is a Canadian knife manufacturer but the knife is made in China. It looks like a fairly good knife.

Image
The knife comes in a plastic packing.

Image
Blade is stainless steel and handle is plastic camouflage.

Image
There is no sheath or case but their is a belt clip with the knife.

Looks like a reasonable knife.

Got another two knives today. :violin:

Image

Image

This one is Schrade Golden Spike knife with leather sheath. The blade is 5" made of 7Cr17 HC Stainless Steel. Handle is made of Staglon. The knife is very sharp and comes with a sharpening stone which can be kept in the sheath.

Image

This is for fishing. A small Victorinox knife (made in Switzerland) with a 2" blade and a scissors. Very useful during fishing. :)

Schrade is an American company but knife is made in China. But it is a very well made knife and quality of steel looks very good. Nowadays all good brands are made in China. Few like Bear & Sons and WR Case are still made in USA. Even Buck is getting many of the knives manufactured in China.
