I cannot hold it, have to brag about it: My new variation on kiridashi, custom made in Europe by this guy: http://www.facebook.com/pages/HKnives/127576897320818 , ordered for me by a friend who knows how much I fall for Japanese blades...
Take a look at the site, please, show some support and maybe someone will order something, I know there are plenty of great US knifemakers, but this is little bit more exotic I think and the guy deserves every penny of support he can get...

Custom made 8.2" kiridashi, 3.2" blade, D2 steel, chisel grind with slight convex to retain edge sharpness, zone hardening at the edge to 58-60 Rockwell, knife is forged and acid treated to get the artistic appearance, but it is absolutely capable of any work.

I checked out his fb Page. He's got some really nice knives. The folder with Damascus blade and wood grip reminds me of Mchenry Williams style is gorgeous. [QUOTE=.38 super;20132297] custom made in Europe by this guy: http://www.facebook.com/pages/HKnives/127576897320818 ,

As you can imagine, some of his work is by order of his customers and they like US knives... What I like is that they don't direct copy and mass manufacture knives, it's one knife per customer, the way he like it... In this case it is probably work done on actual McHenry knife...
This particular guy have already some US and Brit customers, he speaks 5 languages, including English, if you have any questions I guess you should feel free to e-mail him, I didn't speak with him yet, the knife was a gift, I received it last Tuesday...

I just sold my Junglas. It was simply awesome, but I can't carry it hiking, which is the only time I'd use it.

Stupid TX knife laws....

I believe the law says nothing over 5.5" unless you are engaged in the sport the knife was designed for. I'm too lazy to look it up right now, but you should be ok hiking with a junglas in TX.

Love it, one day I'll line them all up with the 3 and 6, love those knives...
Here is little work done by one of the guys in a forum that I go to once in a while:

oldies but goodies

Picked up a regular old mini-grip w/ a yellow handle. It’s good enough to be in the rotation.
I already had a Ritter-Grip full size.

Spyderco Southard today, as the Park cops aren't the most well versed in weapon laws and I didn't want to risk an assisted opener.

State park cops aren't even here aren't even up on CHL laws, so I'd rather not push it

Recently picked up an Endura. I had a nice Gerber knife that I carried in my purse but I loned it to someone who didn't return it and I can't remember who.

i've run into that exact problem myself. next time you catch an ignorant leo request a higher ranking officer to come out. be nice and be respectful but explain that he is wrong. if a higher ranking officer can not come out then ask him to call it in to dispatch for clarification.

if both of those fail then surrender your blade, apologize, and move on.

that sort of thing is why i never carry my expensive blades out in the woods.

Benchmade 275. Starting to look nice with some wear. Been EDC'ing it for about 6 months now. It's a beast of a knife, but I don't mind the weight or thickness... People always like it when it comes out.

I picked up a Grayman Dua Folder as a beater. It is pretty well built and can take a bit of abuse...although the ergonomics leave a bit to be desired.

That worked out real friggin' well, as I can't find it today, and suspect it's somewhere in the middle of Palo Duro canyon.

Damnit

Think I'll transition to a fixed blade for hiking from now on.

Thought the law only applies to concealing. Didn't think there was a length limit as long as it was 'open carried.'

Good thing someone suggested you look into that again.

Another unusual bit of TX knife law is that blade length is measured from the top of the handle to the tip, not from the bottom of the sharpened edge. On some knives, the blade length listed in a catalog will be a little shorted than the length as measured by the law in TX. i.e., it might be longer than you hought it was.

Also, individual cities have their own ordinances. Shorter blade lengths are common, and San Antonio bans knives that lock open, for example. Enforcement isn't consistent, and may depend mostly on the officer's mood.
