    And the okapi range very cheap and another peice of history, although the larger ones are lockable.

    Both the okapi and the sodbuster are available very cheaply here:

    klotzli sliplock gents'
    this is in g10 - its available in carbon fibre too - around the 80 mark in sandvik - listed as Skellern design on their site

    the handle/blade geometry looks good for a warnie

    EDIT : Nonsense this is not in G-10 - its carbon fibre


    ps - mik how did you get hold of the petit thiers? Have been exploring all avenues.

    Re: The Legal Slipjoint Sticky

    A popular old favourite - well perhaps not so much any more. This is a John Nowill navy knife (sheffield; about 25).

    I have to say I was surprised at how well this keeps and holds an edge. It came with a pretty steep bevel, not one designed for razor sharpness (rather like the stainless steel itself - at least that's what I thought). It also came with a slight concave curve along the length of the blade - like the shallowest of pruners. I am sure that curve is useful, but not for me. So I straightened it out on a rough whetstone, then went through some grades to a diamond stone. Then gave it one lick on each side with a flat file, before going back to the diamond stone.

    This is a strong and inexpensive knife, which has a hard life I have had a few of them over time, and like the others, I fully expect to either lose or knacker this one. Sharpening it like so was an experiment a little while ago and I think it gives it a very fine serration as well as a more conventionally sharp edge at the same time. Im not sure, but in any case it gives it a great cut, which is accurate and is sustained by the steel.

    The marlin itself is about the single most handy thing I have ever had.The spring was a brute at first, but wore itself in - its still good and stiff though.

    These things are people friendly, tough and useful and are made by several Sheffield cutlers. They weigh a bit mind - no danger of forgetting you've got it in your pocket. Not as bad perhaps as the more familiar version with the tin opener.

    They are also handy for making up sailors tales to infants - yo ho ho.

    It's been said before though - they'd be nothing short of magnificent in a supersteel or damascus.

    (sorry if this contravenes the 'non-discussion' rule, but I felt that this could do with clarification)

    Re: The Legal Slipjoint Sticky

    Mmm,I think it's alright as the blade wont lock fully open,but I'll leave it up to some one with a bit more law knowledge to say yes or no.

    You can get them in such, but they are also super prices.

    Mike Skellern is a fine South African maker...I have held his original like this one, and it is real comfortable...
