i used to have machete, 30 cal M1 carbine bayonet, an electricians pocket knife, currently own too many box knives(4 or 5), a spanish CETME Bayonet, a Camillus NY chrome version of their MK 2 fighting knife/K-bar (same blade and handle as a K-bar, just different finish and sheath), am gettign a M7 bayonet for an AR, trying to find a cheap pilot survival knife that is also US issue, not chinese lol. also looking at an Ontario knife company Mark 3 MOD 0 dive/combat knife locally

oh yeah, cant forget the good ol Entrenching blades! sharpen the edges on them, they make for a mean throwing weapon, swinging weapon, and general mayhem inducing objects, especially if using the East German entrenching tool, or the 50s US bi-fold shovels (not the modern tri-fold shovels, they're horrible for throwing, since they have more metal towards one end than the blade end)

Anyone else ever been involved in fencing or have formal training with a blade?

i used to train with the bokken sword in taekwondo, that was fun except when you didn't time the block right. I also trained with the staff.

I love my hatchets more than anything. I found an old norwegian axe head in the woods one day. I polished it up and made a nice handle out of an old splitting mall handle. That little hatchet has blazed many trails, shooting lanes, hikers, ect.

A Ka-bar kukri will probably be my next cutting/chopping tool. I just hope I can throw it as easily. Put anything with a semi-sharp edge on it in my hands and I will find a way to stick it into a tree.

Well, I happen to believe that each tool has its intended use, so I have to answer thus:

Sword: Baskethilt Claymore
Dagger: Scottish Dirk (AKA the Ballock Dagger)
Small fixed blade: Scottish Sgian Dhu

Now outside of the "fantasy" blades, My SRK from Cold Steel is top notch. Next to get from them is a Tanto voyager in XL

LOL...oh druid...Im not going to say that you're predictable, but there are undiscovered stone-age tribes in the depths of the Amazon rainforest that knew you were going to say that. :P

I like the basket hilts too, but prefer the older 2-handed models with the wide cross guards. Although the basket hilts are good for punching an opponent in the face with in close quarters. :)
Try one of the Papenheimer blades sometime. Similar weight to a basket claymore, but with a slightly more tapered blade...the hilt is close to a basket, just a little more open. If a BH claymore had a love child with a swept hilt rapier, it might look something like a Papenhimer.

I personally prefer the baskethilt over the Greatsword because the Greatsword requires two hands to sling. The gGreatsword has reach and heft but the baskethilt is lighter and faster and allows the bearer to use the Targe and Dirk in the other hand (think SCA event fighting). Claymore in the strong hand, Targe and Dirk in the blocking hand.

I remember when some of the best knives were caribou knives. Pictou NS made awesome blades. Sheath knives were woods knives. Daggers and such just don't do it for me. Everything changed with Rambo. Come on, fishing tackle and a compass in a handle from a made in China knife, all for an amazing price of $19.95 is not the way to go.

the Buckmaster Buck knives made after 1984 had storage compatment and compass and "talons" for "grappling".....are not 20 bux...the Gil Hibben knives made for the movies, are based on a hypothetical survivalist knife....and then you have the 2nd, the 3rd, and 4th all which increased in size and ridiculousness, and culminated in a simple home made machete made of a truck leaf spring leaf.

The hollow handled, Rambo-ish knives are a waste of money. The knife is only as strong as its weakest point and that's the tang. Those knives have a 1/4"...1/2" [at best] threaded tang that screws into the grip. Can you say "snap?" The blade can be the best ever made but unless it remains a unified piece...it's useless.

And just as an FYI........if you took a spent 16gauge and a spent 12gauge shotgun shell and fit them over top of each other (16 goes inside the 12), you get approximately the same amount of storage space as is in those crappily designed handles......

I would love to own a gurka knife, or a actual katana, which a really good one costs like 4,000-10,000 bucks ( maybe that a lil over exaggerated) I tend to have bad luck with sharp shiny objects though.
frequent visits to the hospital
Me: could you attach my hand back on my wrist
Doc: been playing with katana again?
Me:......yeah

the buckmasters made by buck had heavy heavy tang handles, but they werent popular because 1, they're heavy, 2, th bare metal handle with the sharp knurling hurts hands, and even when wearing gloves, it wasnt natural, and three, it wasnt exactly a jack of all trades, it was more like below that in all trades and a master of presentation ;)

otherwise; I have a Leatherman Kick, wonderful multi-tool...if i can find a black K-bar type of knife, with or without scabbard, i might pick up a MOLLE scabbard that has a smaller pouch on outside that my leatherman can fit in, since for camping or whatever, i dont see myself not using a hunting knife and leatherman both....

best blade that ive been useing for the last year or so has to be my khukri (gurka knife).
11" blade, full tang, handmade hickory handle (done after purchase). the metal is suppose to be HC steel but im suspect to that since there are noticeable soft spots along the inner curve of the blade, the real business edge seems to hold up just fine. Nothing fancy or expensive, $20 through 'by the sword' (dont really recomend them) and after 4 days hicking and camping that blade did all the chopping, splitting, shaving (for kidling), and filet... well lets just say the fish meat was obtainable and good with rice.

i got my share of wall decoration swords, katana set, hand+1/2, skull axe, various daggers. nothing real or useable their but then i got 'what the hell is that'

that is the 4lb spiked flail on 18 inches of chain with an oak handle, me daddie made that when he was a wee school runt. so he claims.


now that i think about it i got like 6 bayonets of various soviet block origins for various rifles that i dont own, leathermens, multi tool, blah blah blah in tool knives and machets and other true use base tools that dont count for this thread but boy does it get the neighbors attention when i walk around with a bag full of them and they decide to ask what im doing.
