    Something doesn't look right about the pictures.

    But if you can send me one of those knives, then I'll believe you

    There is a thread on this theme in the Flashlight Collecting section, so I'm going to merge this thread with that one.

    They state no larger than 800x800, and none of my pictures were larger than that. No hard feelings. Thanks for your efforts to keep an eye on things.



    I actually don't know a whole lot about it. My dad bought it from a mail-order catalogue when he was around 8-10 years old, so that would've been 1952-1954. In the catalogue it showed the thing driven through a penny. It had deteriorated a little bit by the time I got my grubby little hands on it. There was this awful opaque paint on the handle and it was a bit rusty, so I sanded/stripped the handle and finished it with "tung oil finish" - it's like tung oil but it's got a varnish component too - cleaned up the blade and other metal fittings, oiled the leather sheath, and it's been a great companion when I need it, usually camping. Sharpens up nicely when it needs it, which isn't often. Here are a couple pics (no larger than 800x800 ):







    that's a old Mora of Sweden knife.

    Well, the photos were not photoshopped....I use PictureIt. The photos were adjusted for brightness and contrast, and the one with the L1 and MT knife was shaded around the edges using PictureIt. The chain is mine and is on an old tree stump and the knives and lights were placed there. I adjusted the lighting as I do not have a macro lens for my camera and there were done with a regular lens and a diffused flash. To make the photos look better I did the adjustments.

    Anyways, I really appreciate the implication that these photos were faked or that the items do not belong to us...very nice.

    Well, hopefully this will help prove it. These photos are of my wife holding the objects. I took them with my wifes cell phone, sent them directly to email the to my photo account. Yeah, we own these things.

    So are we not allowed to re-touch photos in this thread? The pictures look great, watchcollector! I have a L-UDT just like that, but with the claw. Doesn't get out at all really, they aren't allowed here except to collect.

    Since I'm the OP I'll state that I really don't care if the pics are touched up or not. So what???

    I think it is great that people are sharing pics. I know I appreciate it!

    Thanks, of the 3 items shown from my EDC, I use two daily and hope I never have to use the third! Not shown is my 357 Ruger SP101, which I carry sometimes in place of the Kimber. I think my next purchase, other than Elektrolumens' Shadeslayer Fatboy, is probably going to be Benchmade 556 in yellow w/out serrations. Whaddaya think?

    thanks, just fixed it depusm12, it likes p+ hollow points for sure, at the range w/ fmj the lighter short slide tends to jam every 5 rounds or so which believe it or not is fairly common on the ultra series, so as long as i feed it a healthy diet of corbon's, there's no problem whatsoever.

    This is correct. As per the OP's wish, it doesn't matter if pics in this thread are re-touched or digitally enhanced, so long as there is no intention to mislead people and there is no mischief or deception intended. There has been no evidence of that here, so far as I am aware.

    Thanks DM51. I'm simply assuming no one would want to mislead anyone on a thread like this. That would be so sad.

    I like the BM556. Those mini-grips appear to have a great reputation. I'm probably going to pick up a Spyderco Salt in yellow to keep and use around the beach. Probably an Atlantic.

    I'd love to see more Kimbers.

    One with a pistol to keep in full theme of this thread.


    Yes, this was adjusted for lighting, contrast and a slight "antique" shading from the edges inward.

    I like that one too, but am unfamiliar with the mechanism holding the clip on, does this knife require a special tool to service the clip if say I wanted to reverse it?

    Daekar,
    I've skinned beaver in the Yukon with one of those knives and stropped it on the tail to keep it razor sharp. They were $5 Cdn. back then, (Early 70's) were a laminate of really good steel on the edge and softer metal to sandwich it.

    Pat
    Let's throw a little light on the subject.
