Sharp edges with a handle.....

Everyone loves a blade (trust me on this one) whether it be a patch knife, pocket knife or trusty Barlow. Tell us about your favorite blade and show us the proof!

My every day carry knife is this yellow handled Case Trapper with carbon steel blades. I had one I carried for over 20 years with abalone handles but got a hole in my pocket and lost it at work >:( Anyway Case knives with abalone are exceedingly expensive these days and ones with carbon blades are kinda hard to find. I asked on one forum if anybody had one and a buddy sold me this one for 25.00. When the box came it had the Browning with it. The Browning stays in the junk drawer for cutting stuff that doesn't require a very sharp blade. The Case will shave your face.

These are my leather cutting knives,  I use at least one of them every day.  Rosewood handles with brass ferrules and brass rivets. 
I keep a Buck Stockman model in my pocket for everyday cutting tasks.

I am trying to copy an old cutlery handled dagger on the cheap - got the blade from Track and the guard and the handle is a spare Sheffield plate on I aged. The guard is still too thick even though I thinned it quite a bit so I will look for some slimmer ones but overall it captures the look of an 1860's original at a price (about $35) that I won't complain if I loose it. I have two or three of these handles left may do another one sometime with a better guard.

Nice blades, all! Love the leather knives, Mike! Those look sharp enough to cut your eyeballs just by looking at them.

You could do your morning shave with any of them.  I don't have any hair left on my arms from constantly testing my knives by shaving a patch of hair everytime I strop one of them.
