    Nice, the Opinel is very popular with bushcrafters (another of my hobbies). Didn't really expect to see this as an image thread here, but why not? Here's a couple I happen to have from my Flickr account. Both knives by my friend Iz Turley of Turley Knives.

    Damn nice jloden. I've never even heard of bushcraft until now.

    I've got a Maestro Wu back at the house you would love, I will take and post some photos when I get back home.

    Oh the Opinel is a number 8 with original type of steel for the blade and it cost only 10 €. Not too shabby.

    Very nice Opinel. The LE engraving brings it out. That Turley is also beautiful ! Here are a couple of my new tools.

    Nice, I'm digging this thread. Post more knives everyone! I'm heading back to Courty et Fils tomorrow looking to pick up a Douk-Douk before I leave France next week, will post photos of it and some other knives when I get home. Yup, a Douk-Douk. I like classic, useful (and cheap) knives.

    My Thiers saw lots of use this week on the beach cutting fruit and opening wine bottles.

    My Swiss Army knife that has been in my pocket for the last 15+ years. Use it everyday and can't imagine being without it!

    Found this feller stuck in a tree at our last campsite. Not really one I'd choose but the price was right! I know folks that swear by their tactical folders and are never without one.

    A few knives that I enjoy using

    This one was handmade by JK Knives to my specific design.

    Trio of Beckers

    The venerable Spyderco "Sage"

    This svelte "gentleman's knife" is very sweet, sharp, capable, and quite literally a "featherweight". It's so lightweight that you never feel it in your pocket... just right for an evening at the symphony while wearing a suit. (Must admit, I haven't been to the symphony in years and I miss it!) :frown:
    P1010306.

    Before carrying a flashlight and a knife on a daily basis, you never realize how wonderfully useful these tools are... once you carry every day, you find perfect uses for them... pretty much EVERY day!

    Awesome sets Don! I might have to take some snaps of my Ed Brown/CR Sebenza this weekend. I have a number of benchmades I normally carry also. Any tips on making shots like you did?

    Hey... fellow Washingtonian! My lighting set-up for these is very simple... I use a mini softbox overhead and at the rear, a larger softbox to camera left, and reflector to camera right... usually. Often I will highlight features with flashlights, mirrors, and other reflectors. I also have a variety of other images, each done with different lighting...

    It looks like some of us are quite safe from potential camera muggers!

    I have an appreciation for knives but I have 2 fears: my wife, who is not so careful with knives. I don't see myself ever buying anything expensive for our kitchen(uh I can imagine using a knife as a hammer or to pry open a door or something). And I appreciate the utility of a knive for day to day usage, but I would want to familiarize myself with Canadian/provincial carrying laws.

    Ron.. the Leafstorm is a great Spyderco... nice! Great steel and build.

    I need to restrain my photographic contributions to this thread... I'm afraid I might suck down the entire USA's bandwidth, terribly, if I didn't. :rofl:

    The little Spyderco Dragonfly... so very small, yet of such high quality and capability.
