    I have a rather modest knife collection, and no pics on hand at present.
    I ordered a new CRKT the other day, so I may have to take a 'family photo' when it shows up.

    I know some others here have some pretty impressive collections though...

    Here's what I currently have:

    Top to bottom:

    1. Batangas medium Balisong (blade taped up because I'm practising balisong moves:thumbsup: )

    2. Spyderco Temperance - excellent fighting knife. Very light, razor sharp (VG-10 steel), good grip both in sabre and reverse, Kydex sheath with tekloc.

    3. Spyderco Delica (OD scales) - My beater knife. Goes in my left pocket.

    4. Spyderco Waved Delica - Delica with Emerson wave technology. This is an actual collaboration with Ernest Emerson. Goes in my WIFE'S right pocket.

    5. Emerson Plain edge Bowie - I never leave home without it. Simply the best folding fighting knife that money can buy.

    6. Cold steel MiniPal - cute little push dagger. Small knife = big damage in a tight spot.

    7. S&W HRT Bear Claw - My wife uses it as a neck knife. Good concealment when its hanging arnd your neck. Accesible by both hands. Finger hole provides good retention.

    Other knives that I sold or gave away:

    CRKT M16-SF Tanto
    Spyderco Paramilitary
    Coldsteel CompTac 2
    Spyderco Mannix
    Blackhawk Kalista
    Camillus Necker
    Coldsteel Desperado

    One good thing that I recently discovered is that I live just a few kilometers from a very talented knife maker in Pangasinan.

    I asked him to design a fixed blade double-edged pikal knife for me, and this is what he came up with:

    [​IMG]

    The handle is made of kamagong, and the 4-inch blade is polished tool steel.

    I was overjoyed after handling and testing the finished product; it was as sharp and durable as the Spyderco Endura I've been carrying, but it only cost 1/4th the price of the Spydie. I was so happy I asked him to make 5 of them, two of which I sold to someone at Warrior Talk.

    After that, I requested him to make a push dagger for me, and this is what I got:

    [​IMG]

    This one is made of stainless steel and has a 2-1/2-inch blade. It has a soft leather sheath that is rectangular in shape and has the outline of a wallet --perfect for back pocket carry. I ordered 10 :)

    Nope, Doc. It's his brother-in-law. The blacksmith you mentioned (JJJ Vaciacraft) focuses on international orders. I actually went to him first but he politely told me that he couldn't accommodate my request because the quantity I wanted was too small. However, he referred me to his bayaw and I've been a happy customer of the latter ever since. The two used to be in business together but the latter wanted a slower pace so he just concentrated on smaller local orders. The only drawback to ordering from him is the long turn-around time, between one to two months, since he gets his steel from Metro Manila and sometimes has a hard time finding a good price for the raw material.

    I'll just PM the price to you.

    Wow.. At around $199 MSRP, it's going to cost around 15t or more here in the Philippines.
