lgm: I like your Beckers.  I know you handled the BK16 and it looks great.  What about the BK11 and BK14.  Did you do those, too?

Thanks, yes I used Osage orange on the BK24 and some scrap oak trim on the 11. The 11 doesn't look great but I like the way it feels.

I think he is refering to the bolded line above.  If you use a phone to access B&B, it leaves a line that says what kind of phone you used.

Phil_R:  I like the B.O.B.  It is a great knife.  I think it is the right size for a lot of things.  That being said, I do not use it alot and needs to be used more. :(

I like the parafin matches, I will have to try making some of those.

Matt:  The Fieldcraft lives on my desk, always at hand, and is my most used knife.  Needed an indoor, afternoon (in case of rain) project for my grandsons scout troop... paraffin matches were the result.  My tin of paraffin matches is an on-going rainy afternoon project, instead of napping.

When it comes to  production knives, I'll have to go with Randall Made as my favorites.  Once past number One, I'll toss in ESEE, Bark River, and Busse Combat.  Not necessarily in that order either, as each of those makes some stunning knives.
As examples, a Randall #11, Bark River Aurora, ESEE 4 clip point, and a Busse Combat CABS.

The Bahco Hunting and Survival knife. Issued to artillery troops in the seventies.


Sports a truly ambidextruous desig  on both sheath and handle. You can even flip the retentionstrap. Also has a stone glued to the back. They often broke but stayed on despite that.


Flow through design sheath and boot clip adjusted for use w. LBE and military boots. I can't bring myself to use it but I have handled users of the kind and just about love them. No frills, ffg with a shallow convex, full tang, light weight and high speed from the past.

First I don't think Chris Reeve counts as production.
Secound, very fine collection. I have always wanted a project 1
I like the small clip point on the right.

I'd consider Chris Reeve knives as production knives.  It ain't like he custom makes each one.  He has employees that make the knives.  Favorite production knives for me is Bark River.

You bring up a good question. Where do we draw the line? Customs, handmade, benchmade, production, semi-production.
Chris Reeves also uses a lot of CNC I believe. I do think he oversees all of it IMO that is a little more semi-custom.

Would sure like to learn more about the sapien. I've looked at it a time or three... But then, I haven't had a lot of luck with Condor's stuff, personally. :shrug:

K,
The Sapien has the same profile as a Mora.  Condor's QC problems have been largely solved and their knives now are pretty good out of the box.  I wanted to make a necker out of it, so I had a sheath made by Badger Claw Leatherworks in San Antonio. I'm not hard on my knives but, if I lose it or break it, they're cheap enough that I won't cry about it.

Thanks! Appreciate it. :)

I've heard about condor ramping up their game a bit, and I do have more confidence that I'd get a usable knife. It is on the radar, for that time when the mad money might not stretch to the cost of a more expensive knife. However, here in canukistan, they're far more expensive to get.

OK.  This would be a 2 part answer.  Favorite meaning which one do I use the most.  And favorite meaning which one is the coolest one I have: the one I handle, think about and heft (but in this case is so nice, I have yet to really abuse).
 
Favorite knife for everyday use-
I use a Mora 510 and 511 more than any other knife in the woods.  They are cheap, good, and easily sharpened. 
  (next in line would be the Condor Kephart which I am using more and more)

Favorite knife (coolest and brings me a smile everytime I look at it-
  Chris Reeve Green Beret.  It is 7? bladed monster in S35VN with micarta scales.
 
  But ask me in 6 months and it might change

I thought you had one. Is that the 46? I have already cut the top guard off mine like yours so I can choke up on it better.

Yup. I think that's called the 46. Should be the flat ground version of yours? Guard has to go, for sure. I did a bunch of mods on this knife, and while I haven't used it a ton, it's more than ready and looks more than capable. I bought it for the winter, so I left it black.

I think I ran a thread last year around Christmas time on all the mods I did. I shortened that blasted sheath, for sure! Wow, that aggravated me! :)

I looked for your thread when I ordered mine but didn't find it. Took my 49 out today but I was looking for deer so it didn't see much use. Mine was very dull when I got it. I convexed the edge now it's good to go. Other then removing the top guard for now that's all I have done. I think I will thin the edge close to the handle so I can carve with it better.it's still a little thick.
