My last knife was a carbon steel chinese cleaver. Seems like a rustic utensil but if you think that it can be traced back to thousands of years of history and served for culinary purposes for thousands of millions of people you have to think there's something unique in this simple design. Once you begin using it you get to understand what: versatile, easy to sharpen, keeps sharp for ages, doubles as a scraper, etc.

I have two. Great kitchen knives.

Well these aren't recent, but they are EDC.

1. A Russian interpretation of the Fairbrain-Sykes.

For those not familiar with this type of knife:


Needless to say, it's not for battoning wood.

2. Karambit.

Also not for battoning wood.

3. Scalpel

Actually the most useful EDC blade. The blade is replaceable, of course.

The safety cap is from a plastic Mountain Dew bottle shaped by a lighter. :rofl:

I have a bunch of folding knives but those are next to useless in a self-defense situation.
Who's the maker of the F-S dagger, and what steel is it made of? Thanks.

Joseph Rogers made and still makes the original. They do have a site you can buy from.
I already have a Sheffield made F-S dagger.

Picked this one up yesterday. Really like Ontario Knife Company's products and got a fair deal on this one. Ordered the kydex sheath for it today, I will post pics of that when it gets here :)

Wanted to get basically a grab and go, do all knife, I think this should fit the bill. Anyone have any experience taking the finish off a knife like this? I have removed the finish from my Cold Steel knife and am wondering if this is a similar finish or something more difficult to remove?
Which Ontario knife is that?
