What's so special about the pocket knife. I understand the Swiss, but what about the other one?
User avatar #218 to #172 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
It it a high-end production knife that a lot of OHO fans were super amped for. I personally didn't like it when I handled one, but it is a nice knife.

It has D2 tool steel and is very well made. The 2.0 version is a little better, but not my cup of tea still. Here's a link.

Not gonna lie, I gotta stay old school with my knives. I prefer Old-Style Bowie knives.

I like traditional knives myself: Barlows, stockmen, trappers, sodbusters, whittlers, lockbacks, etc. I do not like modern stuff very much, especially the overly-tactical **** .

I do think the tackiest knife I want is a Bowie knife similar to the big-ass one from CoD.
User avatar #223 to #222 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
Blah. I don't like things like that, but to each his own, right?
User avatar #224 to #223 - darthjangopwnz (01/30/2013) [-]
Yeah. But, I do gotta admit "Modern" knives are really lightweight.
#225 to #224 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
A lot of traditionals are too. Take the Opinel, for instance. It may not be too pretty or anthing, but it is super lightweight, reliable, bomb-proof and very ergonomic. I'm not trying to argue, I'm just making conversation.

Here is a modified one with a moose antler handle (he replaced the wooden handle. The bead is mammoth ivory, I think.). People customize them all of the time to their liking.

Yeah. What's your opinion on hidden blades (not like assassins creed) like necklace knives, buckle knives, and cane swords?
#227 to #226 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
They have their uses, but I don't care for 'em. Basically, my philosophy is summed up by this: if my Grandfather would look at it and shake his head, I don't like it (generally).

Now neck knives are a touchy one for me. I like outdoors neck knives like the ESEE Izula, Becker BK14 and so on. They are awesome for backpacking and just the right size. Actual 'necklace knives', however, I don't care for. I am very picky about my blades, hehe.

I do fancy a little creativity and a mixing of old and new. In this pic, you will see a traditional Electrician's knife pattern. However, it utilizes modern materials like G-10, Lightning Strike carbon fiber, and ATS-34 steel (I think it was that steel anyway on this one). This is a custom by Jared Oeser.

I kind-of like a certain style of the "Necklace knives", but that's because the style I like are the ones that are crosses with the blade you can pull out. I like them because I am somewhat of a christian, but I like having protection on me at all times. (Just in case)

Now for a funny story. I remember once going to (I cant remember if it was a bass pro or a cabela's) with my friend and seeing the "Bear Grylles" knife for the first time and leaving a little note above it stating "How am I supposed to drink my piss with this".
User avatar #229 to #228 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
You know, there is nothing wrong with that at all. If you like something, **** whatever others have to say.

I don't carry knives for self defense, I carry knives to make my life easier. The stuff that I like is not suitable to do so anyway, ah well, I don't think I will ever need it.

As for the Gerber BG Knife, that is hilarious, hat's off to you both.

Why the **** would you want tiny watch cufflinks that you would have to twist your arm awkwardly to read instead of, oh, I don't know, a watch?
User avatar #149 - drunkasaurus (01/29/2013) [-]
Only one I want is the cufflinks that are also clocks. Classy as ****

With which part, the blade or the saw?

My apologies, I realized I didn't use the words I intentionally were to use.   
Imagine cutting your finger with the scizzors...

You got me with the knives. I'd love to have those.
Victorinox > Wenger, but still.
User avatar #92 to #77 - thewellhungarian (01/29/2013) [-]
Ah, another Victorinox lover! I cannot say 100% that I like Vics better (I only own a couple and handled a few more), but they make a wonderful product. My favorite, so far, is my Black Alox Pioneer.
User avatar #208 to #92 - techketzer (01/29/2013) [-]
I had the new Soldier knife for some time before it got stolen (plague and fire upon that bastard, wherever he is!) and also a very plain model, you know, red handle scales.

I love(d) both. Also their kitchen knives do very good work.
Great company.

SOG makes better knives, tbh.

Like this BladeLight.
It's way more practical than the over-sized pocket knife shown.
User avatar #212 to #178 - thewellhungarian (01/29/2013) [-]
SOG is utter crap, IMO. I mean no offense to you, but SOG does not compare to either Wenger, nor the HEST (no matter how much I hate the HEST)
User avatar #213 to #212 - Nameloc (01/29/2013) [-]
How so?
#214 to #213 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
For me, I have only handled one SOG that impressed me, it was one of their multi-tools (So I shouldn't be using such a broad term then, since they do produce something good).

Every folder and fixed blade I handled from them just seemed to tacticool for me. Their build quality seemed lacking and felt cheap (especially the flash II and similar models). From what I have seen, and reports from other users on the forums, they seem to have had QC issues, but this could have been resolved since the last time I took part in a SOG discussion. The steel that they use is decent, and nothing to really complain about, however; it is good for the average user.

I just feel like there is a lot better you can do for the money. Now, forgive me, but I am quite the snob when it comes to my cutting tools, and I mean no disrespect whatsoever. I grew up with SAK's and multi-tools, but am now infatuated with high-end slipjoints and traditionals. My opinion comes from being accustomed to custom-like quality for a few years. To put it simply, I am an elitist asshole, and I duly apologize.
User avatar #215 to #214 - Nameloc (01/30/2013) [-]
Ah, I see.

I have the Power Assist Multitool from them.
Was contemplating on getting the BladeLight from Amazon for $50.
Although with only 35 lumens...it could be better.

Any other brands you'd suggest?
User avatar #216 to #215 - thewellhungarian (01/30/2013) [-]
Lol, my EDC flashlight is only 2 lumens, so, it isn't all bad. I mean, if you want to get a SOG, go ahead. I never liked one-hand openers, so I am very biased against them, so take what I have to say with a grain of salt. Heck, for all I know, that SOG could be a great knife. I never realized that that knife had a flashlight; cool, but it seems silly to me.

You could always check out Spyderco, Buck, Benchmade...the list goes on.

Here is a Buck that my buddy has and loves. I don't know what you like, but it is a really nice knife. Awesome steel, grippy handle.
You could also look into the Spyderco Delica's. Many Handle colors for around the same price.

My advice is this: if you like it, and it works for you, **** what everyone else has to say. If you want the SOG, go for it, it may be everything you want and more. All that matters is that you get what YOU want.
