Why the fuck is this knife $200? Because it was designed by some whore? What is the advantage to having a curvy spine on a survival knife?
>>57534657Important questions of our time.
>>57534657Because the high end knife market serves soiboy mindless consumers
Suckers will pay it, go to any gun show/flea market/fair ever and gander at the tables of $300 "custom no one alike kydex holster" knives.
It kinda looks like Nok-Nok's knife.
>>57534657Honestly, just don't.Here are some prices for perfectly good servicable knives that will last you a life-time:Fiskars Ranger knife M/95 or M/07: 75-85 EurosTerava Jaakaripuukko 110 or 140: 78-83 EurosCold Steel SRK: 60-70 Euros/USD (although I have heard that the steel quality has been downgraded in recent years)So basically any knife that goes beyond 85-90 bucks WILL have significant amount of "air" in the pricetag. Buying anything over 100 Euros/usd will just be paying excessively for name/brand recognition.Knives, just like watches and guns and cars (and like restaurant meals or wines) have a point where the price starts to increase but the quality of the products has already plateau'd. And as far as I understand, with knives it's around 80-90 USD/Euros.
>>57534657The better question is, why did you make a new thread when one's been up since Tuesday and isn't close to the bump limit?
>>57534657Knife General should just be tool general. Jesus christ. You hoarders throwing hundreds of dollars on super rare ultra meteorite damascus secret recipe carbon steel when there's no sensible reason to use anything but stainless steel, man.. it's so silly. And ignorant.What cracks me up the most here, is that at best maybe 1 in 20 images users in these thread posts are of knives that have ever seen any use beyond opening Amazon boxes (for other overpriced gimmick knives of course).Fuck you all. Knife collecting is dumbass consumerism.
I have 1981 Camillus US issue pocket knive, US issue Ontario 498 and i just purchased a Benchmade Griptilian 551.USA is great, greetings from Europe.
Looking for a good general purpose axe lads, what do you recommend?
>>57538705yeah i fucked up
>>57539788Learn how to cast bronze and make your own. It does not heat temper though you need to hammer the edge to compact the molecules or something. Bronze was only replaced by iron because of availability. not better than steel though.
>>57541042Bronze is shit for an axe.>>57539788Just buy an Estwing.
>>57539071>anything but stainless steelBait or retard.
Should there be an Axe/Hatchet General or should it be part of Knife General?Should you have an Axe/Hatchet or not?Should it be multipurpose or not?What have you tried and what has been good or shit?
>>57539788Hults Bruk. White men know axes.
lovebump for the /k/nifes
>>57534657It could be worse poorfag. $200 range also gets you a lot of other options too whatever that's worth
>>57542371axes, and shovels may as well end up in here, I attempted an otherthangun Genereal and it did not do so hot
>>57539071>stainlessStainless is a soft metal dum dum
>>57545004I have a few "good" $200~ knives, I'm just questioning why a CRKT in 1095 is $200
Finally took a decent picture of my collection, save the KABAR but everyone here has one of those.
>>57539495I live in camillus. The original factory is now high end apartments for millenials.
>>57545144Get the Spacebar while u can
>>57545144weld a chain onto that axe
I like pointy knives and I cannot lie.
>>57545287The axe goes with the antler handled fixed blade below it, knife blades pops out and the axe blade can be seated I'm its place. Largely a gimmick, I've read actually hitting anything with the hatchet is a very bad idea. The combo with the sheath is worth more than the rest of my collection combined though. Still has my grandfathers name scratched into the guard.
>>57545495the only good karambits are double-edged fixed blade karambits, wielded by someone actually trained in the art
>>57545033>stainless is one singular material
>>57545287That looks like an excellent way to lose a hand or foot.
What's a cheap beater fixed blade, full tang knife I can use for concrete work? So cheap that I can use it to scrape off excess muck, dig out forms, ect, I'd choose a Mora Companion but it ain't full tang.Also, I've head that the retention isn't good on these knives, would it be possible to tighten it with a heat gun and chanel locks?
>>57534657that's not really that expensive as far as quality knives go why are you so fucking cheap anon lol
>>57546337If all you need is a cheap full tang beater just go to your local outdoor store and buy the cheapest one they have. It'll prolly be a Smith and Wesson or a SOG.
>>57545033Im sorry, how many types of steel do you think there are?
>>57546337Why does it need to be full tang? A $20 full tang Ozark trail Walmart special isn't going to be any more durable than a $10 mora.
>>57546443Thanks for the suggestion, I just cons00med 2 of these from Amazog
>>57547068I-I can't stop c0ns00m1ng, AHHHHHGG
>>57534657get the new powdered metal knife steellook it up>>57545033OP's asshole isn't stainless
Holy mackerel, this knife specifically designed to HUNT MARINES. Marines are *very* dangerous, so a knife built for hunters who hunt Marines must be really powerful!
>>57534657I dunno I mostly buy cold steel, spyderco and kershaw. There's a lot of stupid shit out there.
>>57542371I could see a folding saw being added in the handle but thats the limitif you google combination axe/hatchet you find a lot of ridiculous boomer dad core shit that is like a leatherman/swiss army knife with a tiny axe head added
>>57546443Mora makes the best cheap knives.
