My fancy for Japanese steel do give me a liking for the tanto, but i have never owned a knife with that shape.

Newest blade, SAK Compact with white scales.

Not sure if I should look for a set of Ti scales to match the Sinner or keep this original and get another to mod out.

On the SRM 9211 the transition between the main edge and the front part isn’t too dramatic so it’s also suitable for mundane cutting tasks.

I’d get another one to mod, this one is so classy in white.

I just went over my friends battered knives with my work sharp belt sharpner, one of them a tanto shaped Kershaw knife, and i was able to get a good result just fine.

ATM i am looking at a bushcraft kind of knife, my big choppers i dont really need as i got a saw, so want something a little lighter and smaller to carry on those days and i think the Boker above fit that bill just fine.
And i still want a little Ooomp as Denmark have become a country with wolfs roaming again, and i dont want to go without a fight, one of them i met one night testing a flashlight, he did look at me in a way that let me unbutton my big Bowie Shocked but a flash of several 1000 lumen sent him running, but i did keep my flashlight on a higher output for the rest of the walk.

But then again i should really steer some of my money towards my computer case project that have been shelved for several months now.
Will hack into it with the angle grinder on Tuesday, that way i can figure out what size of parts i need to order to get on with it.

I got the bottom one, but with smooth scales, like it a lot and carried it a lot too.
It is lying right here in front of me on the foot of my computer monitor

Interesting grind on that NZ knife, but i would have reversed it so it was thin or should i say low in the pointy end.
I dont really need a knife to be stab able, if i do need something like that i bring my DIY stiletto in some obscure Bofors steel ( i made it when i was 16, and i am 54 today )

That is ? if i can find it,,,,, i think it is in my long time storage place.

It’s a full flat grind with a convex ground cutting edge which has been polished and stropped, it’s very sharp.
The back of the blade has been etched to simulate carbon, much in keeping with the stock look from Svörd.
The handle has beef reshaped and treated with New Zealand bees wax.

It’s a lovely & simple little knife.

You know they make it in an auto version now, right?

They also make a mini version of it too.

You have some more shopping to do. Smile

Nice! I knew about the auto but not about the mini. I live in California, so any auto over 2 inches is illegal to carry. The standard just barely fits my large hands, but a mini sounds neat too! Thanks for the info!

Tanto blades shape are beautiful and exotic looking but they are really not useful to use and it is hard to sharpen, only useful for stabbing.

My Cold Steel GI Tanto sees more cutting than stabbing especially after I reprofiled the edge. Before:

You cut bamboos? As a work knife a scandi grind is way more efficient. I fell in love with the CH Sultan.

I made a mistake when I planted that bamboo in my backyard a couple of years ago: I didn’t make any barrier around it. Now I have a constant source of material for cutting – chopping. Facepalm
I also added the CH Sultan to my wishlist. Smile

Today I am carrying a Kizer Begleiter. A really nice, slim profile with VG-10 blade steel. Love thumb studs on slim profile knives.

Initially the pivot action was too stiff, but loosened up after a few days of fidgeting with it. The pivot screw must have Locktite on it, because it will not budge.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

Would prefer Ti handle…you like?

Funny… when you wrote “you like?,” I couldn’t help but think of this guy:

I like the “arc” shape with the line following through from handle to blade.

This aint going to fit in a pocket.
It is however going to fit under my Left armpit.
And it is doing nothing in regard to stopping me for trying working with that Kydex stuff, cuz the Leather sheath while fine and all, well i like to be a little different.
And kydex i can tailor to my carry system. ( CC / under jacket )

TBH i am also looking at other grip scales, but that is not going to happen anytime soon.

PS on my 27” 1080 screen, that pic are slightly larger than the actual size. Cash

What blade did I EDC today?

 

A Benchmade 570-1 Presidio II.  S30V.  Light weight for its size, my favorite blade shape, but maybe just a tiny bit too large...  still, one of my favorites.

Victorinox SAK One-Handed Trekker

I had it for 12 years. I damaged the screwdriver and Victorinox kindly replaced the whole knife for free.
