Pocket Knife - Damascus Blade? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
that's a pretty good idea for a cool pocketknife-- myself, I'd be willing to spend a little over a hundred, but not much more. I checked google shopping for damascus pocketknife, there are some reasonably priced and some that go for well over $500

good luck, and let us know what you end up getting.

That's a great idea.

The second one is almost exactly what I was looking for. I wanted an old school gentleman's knife, less than 3 inches folded.

you may also want to look at some of the german produced (Solingen) knives like boker (not magnum line), bulldog, kissing cranes, fight'n rooster, etc. these limited production knives are excellent quality (similar to case), typically bought by collectors and offer great value. I recently purchased a single blade bulldog that measures 2 7/8" closed. It fits well in my pocket, is aesthetically pleasing and I wouldn't stroke out if I lost it.

Thanks. I saw each of these brands on ebay. As a chef, I'm fond of german knives, but wasn't sure of the quality of these pocket knives.

Hope you enjoyed these. Dennis

Dennis, you're truly an artist! Amazing work. But for that quality, the buyer would have to add another digit to his three figure ideal price

Your paying for the look. That is all.
