    I have a bunch of knives that I have accumulated over the years. Some customs such as a Bob Dozier drop point hunter (that my SF son scarfed for his last trip to Afghanistan), a D.B. Fraley tactical folder, and a Charles Marlowe tactical folder that has been to Iraq with me twice. A bunch of factory knives by designers like Elishowitz, Daryl Ralph, and Ken Onion. A Chris Reeves SF graduation knife, a Bob Engnath chute knife blade that I finished and gave to my oldest son when he graduated Jump School, another chute knife blade that I finished and gave my youngest son when he graduated Jump School, and a host of other knives that I've bought or made over the years.
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    Over the years, I've started collections, however the better knives in my collections have been Case, K-Bar, Buck and Bone factory knives.

    I've always bought my sons knives, and for the past six Christmas's mostly cheaper knvies, but occasional Gerbers, My two oldest grandsons carry a 4" folder regularly, and I think they are Gerber Skelaton type.

    Rarely in my life have I carried a pocket knife, as I don't like much in my pockets other than money. I may start carrying a clip-on in case something really crazy happened with my firearm. I do uses knives a lot, but most of that work is utility knives.

    Still, I do manage to have a good little collection of hunting knives, again, nothing custom.

    Speaking of Cutlery, my 19 year old son started selling CUTCO kitchen cutlery to work his way through college. At first I was skeptical until I was telling one of my seller's what Keenan was doing, she had a 40 year old set and had raised 5 kids. They still looked great. Then I found they were made in Olean, New York. I spent some time in Olean in my younger years and Learned Olean and not but 50 miles away Bradford, Pa. were both well known for cutlery. I even bought 4 knives for kitchen use ($300) and I love them.

    Okay, I did get off topic, however I'm sure there are other merits to custom knives than just being hand made.

    I have 2, a Shrade pocket knife and a bayonet made for the M-16 rifle I carry on my belt. Not a knife man, guess that's why I have three 9mm pistols, lol!

    I like knives, but really don't collect them. I have things like Buck, and Gerber. I've carried a pocket knife for years. My current is a SOG.

    Jake3501 -- I enjoy custom knives because they are made by one man or woman, and they can have options that the factory can't give, e.g, different types of steel, handle materials, your own designs, inherent value, and craftsmanship just to name a few.

    gwk1951 -- Love that katana! Is it a bring home trophy?

    45 Forever -- Me too 45. When I still had a top notch collection, I had Loveless, Herron, Kressler, Horn, Johnson, Lile, etc. that not everyone was able to see. It was one of the hardest things having to sell them....

    I started out on Cold Steel and haven't had the cash to give too many other manufacturer's a chance. My first was a Large Voyager 1st Gen Clip Point...fully serrated. I've since acquired two Gunsite II Tanto folders (lost one of them), another Full-serrated clip point voyager, a 2011 Tanto Voyager (plain edge), and I found a 1st Gen Spyderco Delica somewhere that was missing a pocket clip but it's been my sharpening project. All the Cold Steel blades rotate EDC duty. Got my eye on a Hogue EX-01....sexy looking blade!

    My Father brought it back from South Korea after WWII. He was part of the Occupational Forces.
    The original webbing on the handle is long gone, I taped it up to keep the wood together.

    The Bowie in my second pic was made by Western Bowie in the 60's and was issued to American special forces in Vietnam. Its vary sharp and holds a edge vary well. It has a great balance and is heavy enough to cut off a arm. Its know wonder that its the most copied knife in the world.
