Traditional Biker Knives?

What's your experience to what they carry?

Sonny Barger favored the Schrade Sharpfinger because he said it was a decent knife that wasn't too expensive too toss if needed be .
Billy "too loose" Hamilton had a Schrade folding hunter when Gary Fadden shot him in self defense.

It seems that 1%ers like inexpensive, but decent quality knives.

I'd really like to see some of the knives confiscated in Waco.

Back in the day, it was largely Bucks.

Some straight knives, for boots and such.

(I don't remember there being much of a selection for anyone to turn into a knife aficionado. This was before the internet.)

How far back is traditional?

The Wild One or Easy Rider?

Switchblade or Buck 110 in a black leather pouch?

This is similar to what I had after outgrowing my Boy Scout knife:

I imagine the 1%ers like something with a big hilt. They might even skip the blade all together in favor of something to adhere it to their seat.

I doubt if they are stuck back in the 1960's, there are lots of tactical folders out there, and everybody has seen a Spyderco by now.

Last time I saw the guys in the leather pirate costumes at a gun show, they were going ga-ga over the Chinese fantasy knives.

The Manson family allegedly had connections to bikers and they used a combination of Buck 119s and 110s, mexican bowies and Swiss bayonets.

I wonder if the working class cutlery trend extends to bikers now?

Billy "too loose" Hamilton was carrying Schrade folding hunter in 1984. I'd like to see if that spirit carried over.

Real 1%rs don't carry knives at all. If they've been in any felony trouble carrying a weapon can mean extra problems.

I heard this was solved by carrying something else.

A small ball peen hammer.

Plausible enough to keep as a tool aboard a bike for repairs , adjusting chain tension, etc.

But if it were needed for self defense....ouch.

The Okie Corral

These are examples of the types that perforate bikers in prison....possibly the only time some of them have ever held a toothbrush.

Sonny Barger continued to carry a knife while on parole even.
Some states don't consider a knife a dangerous weapon.

A large portion of the club's dues are spent on bulk orders from Bud K.

The only one I have personal knowledge of carries a custom fixed blade with a stag handle.

If I were selecting a knife solely based on its capability as a weapon it would definitely be a fixed blade. A Sharpfinger would have been a great choice in its time (and still would be if they made them worth a darn anymore). I think it's modern day equivalent would be a Mora, which I just so happen to carry in my Jeep.

A lot of the guys I know carry spark plugs for tossing, albeit, generally for throwing at offending "cages".
