Hunter, Thats a really smart collection you got there. I really need to get all mine together. The Cowboy Ad knives are worth a pretty penny now days, along with the ones in the first pic. Very, very nice!!!!!!

Tempting, very tempting!!!!!! OH, Onenut58, in the long run knives are for the most part cheaper than buy guns. Be careful though, it can get very habit forming!!!!!

Very nice....and well organized. Something my collection needs desperately.... ;)

Never been a folder fan, but that collection of yours may change a few minds....some of the gunshops I frequent have wisened up and now have decent knife counters. I always check them first before going to the gun counters. I like older hunting fixed blade knifes and always scan the racks for something interesting. Doesn't matter if it is collectible or has value...just on the lookout for older - experienced ones...

Nice collection. I have a soft spot for folders of pearl and bone. My problem is that I have no direction on what to collect. I just pick up what I like and then find out about it later. I think anyone that likes a nice gun can appreciate a good knife. Really like your displays.

Lieghton I already feel the pull and looking at all the knives you posted and others makes me think I should have picked up some I have seen at yard sales etc. I will from now on.I am not very familiar with who makes good knives past buck old timer ruana. I had a nice ruana one of my dad left me a couple years ago when he died and one of my low life uncles conned my mother out of it.My mother didnt know one knife from another and by the time I found about it it was gone. I am tempeted to go beat his face and get it back but best left alone.
One of my brother in laws bought a couple knives back in the eighties and gave me one of them. It says ontario 6-91 on it. No markings on the blade.The blade on it is about a quarter inch thick and it has a leather handle.Looks kinda like a kabar.
I dont think its all that valuable but it is made of some serious steel.I sharpen all my knives so they shave and it took me hours to hone it down.It holds a edge a long time.I saddle soap the sheaths on my knives and holsters and put a very light coat of mink oil on them to keep them from drying out. I dont know what he paid for the knife but it is a work horse type knife and my favorite for carrying when I go way into a wilderness area.
One guy not long ago told me it was a airforce survival knife made so you could slash through aluminum etc. Dont know if there is any truth to that or not. But it surely would slash through a airplane.It isnt very pretty but it is very useful.

Thats what it is, an old pilots survival knife. It was issued through all branches of our military to all pilots and crew as part of their survival gear if the aircraft went down. Most were made by Camillus.
