The Ancient Barlow

The YouTube Channel “The Apostle P” is one I watch to learn about some great knives as they come out.

If you don’t know anything about Great Eastern Cutlery, you should know this: Mr. Howard and the folks at GEC are turning out some fabulous and collectible knives.

This video was produced after the GEC Rondevieu where fans and collectors gather to talk knives. This was obviously a special knife produced in a very small quantity. You might never actually get to see this knife so I thought I would show this short video.

Hope you enjoy!

W.R. Case Korean War Knife

My Dad, a Korean War Veteran, just turned 90 this year. In addition to the celebration I ordered a knife for him to commemorate the event. Sometimes timing is everything as recently W.R. Case came out with an entire series of knives for each of the battles the United States Armed Forces has been involved with dating back to World War II.

A tremendous amount of detail is shown on the front and back of each knife.

On the front, the words “Korean War” is marked along with a marker signifying the 38th Parallel.

Each knife has the following:

Case War Series Details

• Tru-Sharp Surgical Steel, Mirror Polished

• 3.125″ Clip Point and Spey Blades

• Engraved Bone with Amber Color Wash

• Slip Joint

• 4.125″ Closed

• 7.25″ Overall

• Made in the USA

In addition to World War II, and the Korean War, W.R.Case produced a knife for the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

Many thanks to my Dad, to all soldiers who served our country, to W.R.Case and the people who designed this thoughtful series. I’d also like to thank Josh Basham and the fine folks at Red Hill Cutlery for securing this knife for my Dad.

God Bless America!

Knife Throwing

My friend Brian at Survival on Purpose takes a look at throwing knives. It’s not always as easy as it looks but if you get a target set up, get some knives to throw…yes, they make them… and it’s practice, practice. Good luck and happy throwing!

Cold Steel Code 4

My friend Advanced Knife Bro on his YouTube Channel takes a very funny look, I mean professional look at the new Cold Steel Code 4. It’s affordable, generally available under $100. It is a lockback

I honestly don’t have too many lockback knives for mainly one reason…I don’t like the way they close. Much prefer a frame lock or liner lock. Without further comment, here is Cold Steel Code 4!
