View Full Version : Not your EDC...
27-12-03, 05:33 AM
Well I get to handle them ALL on occasion. Take a looky at this one. The amount of carving is staggering. Oddly, it is NOT a one handed thumbstud. There is a little nick in the blade to open it. Maybe the stud is used after the blade is extracted a bit, because you can't get at it in the closed position. :(
It's a bit over my budget, though. Maybe next year. Listed asking price? $13,000 USD!:yikes: Hey don't slam me, I'm just reporting the facts...... :)
Great photo Coop but I have to say that the "knife" does not ring my bell at all

What Baggy said. Sometimes less is more.

Some lovely work & a great deal of skill has gone into it, but, it doesn't float my boat either (still, the pic's great;))
Great pic coop, thanks for showing us. Knife is as ugly as hell though - even if the work is clearly stunning. ;)

Great pics as always Jim.
I like the knife. It is no uglier than me and would sit very nicely in a pocket :D
Nice looking knife and picture,I am seeing some names I know around here :)
I think the handles work better than the blade personally, but then it's all theoretical because I could never afford it; and if I could I wouldn't buy it myself, I'd commission something to my own tastes. That said you can't deny it's a work of art, though perhaps more of a showpeice than a knife. Kind of makes me think of the bits of stupidly expensive furniture you get on antiques-roadshow that make you go pthwoooarrgh that's some workmanship, but I'd never own it myself cos there's nowhere to put it and I'd never use it.

Respect to the artist for the creation of a superb work of art! :biggthump
But what else could it be good for as to look at and to guess what it could be good for???
Definitely not for cutting!!!
But a wealthy ancient lady sitting in the armchair of her castles library-room would be amused with it and with the question what it could be good for, for the rest of her life. :confused:
Wolfgang :approve: :biggthump
I love it!!!
But then again my taste has allways beene a girly one :D
As for the price, if anyone buys it, the price is right ;)
Great photo also
If Maxim or Sergey are still reading us they would probably comment that to a Russian it looks like a simple, functional working knife.........

What Wrangler said ...
This is art !! Any resemblance to a knife is secondary... Bladeware meets jewellery - that seems to be the bottom line to me. Jason.

I forgot to comment your work as a photograhper, it`s GREAT just as your other photos are. (Especially the one with the Whiskers Allen gents folder - you remember me? :confused: :D Wolfgang? Germany? ;) )
I´m looking foreward to holding it in my hands!! :approve:

I forgot about this one. My piggybank won't cut it, either. EDC for Liberace, if HE was still alive. :)
I did find out there is a nail nick to partially open it, and then the thumbstud to finish the task. The truly rich and luxurious have time to spare. What's the rush??! ;)
