    Pictures Scott! Pictures!

    Now you'll have me searching for Grohmann knives............

    My best fillet knife is the Eagle River one that's on here somewhere, there are a few custom makers here and one day I'll probably have another.

    No takers............... the knife had history given to me by an old friend who got it in the SEAL teams........ I really loved that knife
    Hear you Ard, so hear you.

    No idea what became of same, but a knife my Father had made out of a broken chain arm cutting blade in a lumber mill in Ocean Falls, BC. You could cut a tree down with this thing. Thing was some thing like 12-14 inches long with a Elk (I think) horn bone handle.

    Remember the knife well, just zero idea where it might be. But Dear God, I'd like to have it back. A 'one off.'

    A strong memory of my Father.

    Ard, you should definitely check out the Grohmann website. A guy like you will appreciate their knives. I highly recommend getting their "original", the DH Russell #1--it's a beautiful knife and very useful as a general outdoors sheath knife. And I think we can all agree that you can't have too many knives.

    As to posting pictures. . .the thing is, I'm not much of a picture taker and don't even own a camera (except the one on my iPod Touch), and the only pictures I do have of fishing trips are ones taken by friends of mine (like the one in my profile--that's me heading out on the Chilkoot one frosty morning). Also, I'm having a bit of trouble uploading pictures I do have from iPhoto to a gallery on this site--the pics from iPhoto are apparently too big for the gallery. I've read the "posting photos" thread and guess I'll eventually have to use photobucket or a similar website. Anyway, one day I'll get around to it.

    Heck Scott,

    I was on that site before the ink dried on my last post here I like them but currently I'm at the saturation level for blades and I'm a sucker for one with a moose or caribou handle these days.

    You knife guys hear of Blindhorse Knives?
    Great USA made knives, good steel recipes, for a sensible price.
    These knives are really tough and comfy in the hand
    Here's a link to their custom work shop for a tour.

    Anyone familiar with original Rigid knives? These have been sitting in one drawer or another for a long time. The history of the company is a little hard to doccument. They were made in So. California in the 70's and rumor is that several Buck employees started moonlighting and making them in one of their garages and got let go because of it. Who knows? Now the Rigid name still exists but has been sold so the insignia shows up on all sorts of knives that are no longer made in the USA. I was 15 or 16 when I bought them at a store called Gemco which no longer exists either. Kind of like Westinghouse where I worked. Now the good old Circle Bar W logo shows up on all sorts of cheaply made imports.

    Rigid knives were made in Santee, Calif starting in the 1970s. But, like so many brands, they were later made in Asia (recently, Buck knives too).

    Nice collections from all of you, good to see the thread back to life.

    I found a box from storage a while back with some nice knives in it that I haven't seen for ten years, I'll photo and post some soon. The hard core blade guys will like them I think
