No way I could own any if those. Me buying an ornate knife is like me buying an ornate hammer. I just couldn't get into it.



I doubt i will own any either, but they are still a sight to behold and appreciate. There was a lot of work, design and craftsmanship that went into building them...

They are impressive for sure. I can appreciate anything with that kind of workmanship. I just don't think I could get into collecting them. I've just never really viewed a knife as something that should be converted to art. Sorta like hammers

No doubt that they are beautiful though. Anything involving ivory has to be a fine piece of work.

If I bought one, it would go in a case on my mantle or something. Those are too fine to use.

My old man has one with a Mastadon handle. Damn knife is so fine though it just looks like it really needs to be used on a deer.

Hasn't happened yet but I sure want to.

Now wait a waffle head swinging second. When I did construction I had a framing hammer with an octagonal head and semi straight claws. The head was fastened to the handle with a wedge from my grandfathers old hammer and the end sealed with heavy varnish. The handle was hickory with heavy grain showing and the grip had been shaved and sanded to perfectly fit my hand. It was smooth and shiny with the oil from my skin. It was a piece of art in it's own right.

Oh I know, but I haven't had the oppurtunity to talk about that old hammer yet.



I don't routinely buy things for their ornamental value either. If it ain't functional I am not interested.

There's more beauty in what you described than what is posted here IMO.

Different strokes for different folks though.

Thought this was pretty cool.

re: Custom knife porn...


Well I finally made it to the end of the thread I linked in the first post. I probably listed about 5% of the total knife pictures listed. Well worth a look if you need to waste time...

IMHO, those custom knives are made to admire and fondle and have friends coddle them. Very sharp looking indeed!
