Christmas blades!

GunNutGunNut Posts: 7,642 Senior Member
Two new slashing thingies under the Christmas tree this year.  

1- Cudeman MT-4 is a very popular brand in Europe making its way here.  This folder is NICE with enough meat on the spine and body to take the place of a fixed blade for field work if f called upon.  Scary sharp from the factory and the white micarta scales and stainless body should make it last a while.

2- A long time bucket list knife.  An original Chris Reeve Mark VI.  They stopped making these because they are just too expensive to make.  The examples for sale out there are now commanding 4 figures in like new condition.  Found this locally for a great price.  Used enough that it won’t bother me to use it some more but still in great condition and not abused at all.  These knives take an insane sharp edge too and are known for toughness. Machined from a solid piece of tool steel.

    No Frank Frazetta pocket knife?! :D

    I like both of those, it would be hard to pick only one of them, but that Chris Reeve is pretty cool. Original sheath(nevermind, I looked it up)? How old is it?

    Yep, original sheath.  I also got a Spec.Ops nylon/kydex sheath for it so I can keep the original leather one in nice condition plus the SO sheath is pretty hardy.  Tough to say when it was manufactured.  Somewhere between n the late 80s to early 2000s.  It’s a USA marked knife.  His early work is marked South Africa.  I’ve wanted one since I first saw them in the 90s but money and opportunity never seemed to match up and I hadn’t seen one in person in years.

    In keeping with our tradition of non-traditional holiday meals, I've wiped off the blade and will see how it works on fried baby clams. They've recently started selling them at our local Safeway. Next year, with luck...baby seals.

    I actually showed my wife and kids some pictures of Helle knives pre-Christmas, I need another knife like I need a hole in the head....... but I keep coming back to those.

    I have looked at several Helle fixed blade models in the past but never ponied up for one. The wife picked this on her own and I couldn't be happier with it.
    If you like the Scandinavian style knives check out this site   https://www.knivesofthenorth.com/ I have no affiliation with this company but have bought 3 knives from them recently and all have been very good quality for the price.

    Thanks! I think my dad had a Jarvenpaa horse head puko now that I looked at the site, kept it in his overnight bag, disappeared with my sister when he died....

    It’s a beast of a knife, to large for pocket carry really but does come with a very nice leather belt sheath.

    It didn't come from that site, I was pointing Chiro to a collection of Scandinavian knives. It is called a Dokka, my wife found this one at Scheels but it's available on Amazon and other places.
