Hi to all you knife enthusiasts :)

I like to share my collection with you all. Not all knives are that special, but I try to make the pictures as atractive as posible since photography is my hobby and Graphic Design/Image Editing is my profession. Essecialy in combination with knives its a great way of wasting my time :D. Some of the knives are vintage, some are used as EDC. Now a days I am mostly into heavy (tactical) folders. But when a nice opportunity comes a long to purchase a vintage PUMA, Al Mar, Buck or Gerber etc, I wont hesitate.

I only own factory models, mostly folders, and I have no plans (yet) for a 'Custom'.
Hope you'll enjoy them anyway!



FOLDERS 'General'


Fox Cultlery • 577 1994

Böker Solingen • Optima 'Grey Bone' 2000

Buck Knives • Alpha Dorado 154CM 'Bos'
Doradoa.jpg



Opinel • Eff.12 'Slim Line' How can something so cheap be so pretty (and tall).

I gave the next two knives a little more attention. They are true HQ factory models. Esspecialy the Böker Solingen top-line is sometimes to be forgotten. The Solingen line is of much higher guality than the Böker Plus line wich comes from Taiwan or China. The 'Rukus' is my current EDC knife. In my perception it is almost the perfect design.


Böker Solingen • Titan Defender

FOLDERS 'Vintage'

In my collection are some nice HQ folders wich cost some serious amount of money. In the end I would sell them all for what reason that might come up (hope not). Except for 2 knives. My PUMA '970 Game-Warden' and the Al Mar 'SERE Attack II'. They are very special to me and I will never sell or use them. They are the founding fathers of my love for knives in general and my collection.

That's a good lookin collection you have there. I'm particularly fond of the S&W Maverick. My father carried that same knife from the time I was about five til about five years ago (approximately 30 yrs) when he lost it. He was extremely upset when he lost it.

Thank you so much for sharing. I truly enjoyed looking at your beautiful knives.
Some folders you own would pass for fixed blades too! The Extreme Ratio and the ZT-0301 are both over the top in bulk and tight tolerances. Just wonderful to see the whole lot! Makes me want to buy more knives!

Peace.

Very nice collection. Photos are top notch too. Probably should add a "Bump" to keep the guy happy and help the US economy?

Thank you for your kind words. Photography realy is only a hobby. I use a rather simple compact camera. Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FS3 (2 years old) with a Leica optical zoom lens. But my shots do not come out of my camera like this. Since I am a Graphic Designer/Image editor by profession, Photoshop is like my second nature. So part of the result is due to this part.

Bout your image up-loads... I dont know where you store your images. I use Photobucket.com. I can ad as many as I like when opening a tread here on Knifedogs or anywhere else. (exept British Blades)

I usualy prepare my treads on my Mac in a simple text program where I write my text and already copy-paste the
before posting it. So give it another trie, good luck.

Cheers, Wouter

Nice. I really like the old SERE. I let mine go and regret it. A real monster of a knife, and as well mede as any I have ever handled.

Great collection! I have a Puma 970 also #41272 that I bought right after I enlisted in the Army in 1972. Carried it just about evry day for the next 15 years. Still use it occassionally and it still looks great. Puma really hold up well.
