Just sipping some coffee on this lovely morning, perusing Sigforum and happened upon this thread. I also ordered 2 with one of them being a gift.
Looking forward to seeing these knives in person.

I just got this one in, it's a Kwaiken from Black Rock Forge. This is a really well thought out design, even the sheath. The biggest issue might be handle thickness but since it's a custom you could request different. This is very affordable, comparable to many production offerings. Mine is AEB L Stainless, micarta with G10 liner, Kydex sheath.

The sheath is set up for right side, inside wasteband, clip is reversable, though. It's 8 5/8" OAL, blade 4 1/4".

I've been carrying a short kabar for years. Useful knife, and no so expensive that you cry if you break it.

That is good to hear. I have one coming. I've had my eye on that model for a bit. It would seem like an excellent choice for the purposes discussed in this thread.

it would be helpful if you guys would put the cost of these knifes that most of us have never heard of. Some nice looking blades too.

I hesitate to put the price in on customs. The makers tend to fluctuate with steels, materials etc. The Flat Rock that I posted is on Joe's site, $175.00-$195.00.

I'm really loving my ESEE with the S35V blade for edc. It's remained razor sharp since the day I bought it and is the Glock 19 of my fixed blade knives as far as carry goes.

I see JICT has a nice little flipper coming out. The Janey-J. Patiently waiting for it to be released. If you go to their web site and scroll down there's a couple pics.

A year and a half, 19 pages, and I just realized it says "knfe” in the thread title. I still have the $40 Buck Reaper in my truck. It’s come in handy and it has yet to need sharpening.

I still haven't decided upon a knife. Looking for one to carry out in the woods - additional layer of protection. Open carry on the leg, probably.

ESEE 4 or 5 and Spyderco Jumpmaster2 have my eye. But the latter is trending no - the knife seems nice in every way except they are available only in serrated. I'm not sure how well indicated that is here.

Konata, I'm sure you know this, but the size disparity between the ESEE 4 and 5 is significant. This may fit the bill for what you want, just be sure to check the weights and dims before you buy. Or just buy both. Big Grin

Thanks! Yes, that's mostly why I'm undecided. The weight in particular - 16 vs 8 oz!

But my folder has about a 4" blade (Spyderco Manix 2 XL). So was considering a larger fixed blade. But not sure what the pros/cons are of it vs the 4". And whether the 4" is just redundant w/ my folder.

While I have a trusty Kershaw Blur Tanto that I have with me often, I’ve been carrying (again) this Pocket Drop fixed-blade from Kistner Knives. It carries very well in its horizontal sheath.

I was excited to see that Dee Kistner is in the process of returning to the knifemaking business after a brief hiatus. I’m not sure if he has a website back up yet or not.
