Nicest Knife

Recommended Posts

We've talked about our Favorite Knives.

Now, lets move on to our Nicest Knives.

 

 

 

For me it would be the Helle Harding.

Disregard the folding knife. The Damascus blade knife is nicest blade I have.  My granddaughter got my stag handle hand made knife cause she wanted it, but I will draw the line on this knife...unless she wants it too:rolleyes:

I have two daggers that I think are very nice....and, though not technically a knife, a sword.

 

Nicest dagger with my wife's S&W Model 15-4 "Combat Masterpiece" in .38 Special.

Here's my nicest "Long Knife."  The anomalies in the blueing are caused from the oil on the blade.  In hand, the blueing is flawless.

 

My wife gave me this replica Napoleonic saber as my retirement gift.

My saber is an exact replica of this original saber I found displayed in the French Army Museum at Les Invalides in Paris, France.

UB, I also have a replica 1872 saber, but the Napoleonic French Guard Light Cavalry uniforms put most other cavalry uniforms to shame.  And, their officers needed an appropriately dressy saber...don't you think?

Now, back to "Nicest Knives."  

 

I think this dagger is a nice blade with my S&W Model 19-3 "Combat Magnum" in 357 Magnum.

My 72 is original. Not minty but at least the blade’s not full of “combat” nicks. (From kids playing pirate) :D

All my knives are used so the good looks are gone, but I have this knife that I bought but cannot bring myself to actually use. I just take it out of the box on occasion and look at it.

It is a CRKT “Hunt & Fisch” knife. 3.5” blade. The creator of this knife passed away due to cancer, I believe. He was a promising knife designer, but this was his only marketed design before he passed.

 

It is a nice little sheath knife that is well balanced. I will eventually utilize it, but for now I like to admire it.

I reckon that would be the J. Price , Dosier style hunting knife , JP worked with me several years back , 

He thought I needed a better knife that the Buck I was carrying , when we were hunting with the Mls 

next nite , he walked by said give me X $ , thought what am I buying sight un seen ? 

came back by , and shoved it in my hip pocket , been using it since as a primary hunting knife 

I have been told it is worth quite a bit to some collectors , JP had some knives featured in SOF and some trade mags (knifemakers , )

Four of my favorites. Top one copied after one Elmer Keith had made, Micarta grip, not whatever is used now. Second one down is kind of a bowie with stag handle, Third one is my favorite skinning knife with a Hippopotamus handlem Fourth is one I made fashioned after the "Nesmuk" knife sold by Sears a long time ago
