Where can a fellow get a pocket knife worth taking home,,Buck use to be a good knife-now they are China made junk and will not hold an edge..Case is about the best I"ve found but even they are nothing to write home about SOG, I only had one and it would sharpen but would not hold an edge at all..I"m running out of quarters..I buy a knife and have to tape a quarter to it before I throw it away..That way I can say I threw away something..

I would recommend an older(1970's & earlier)Case XX w/ the old high-carbon blades. Around that time they started offering the stainless option which doesn't hold an edge as well.

My Grandad gave me this one in 1970 for Christmas. I carried it everywhere w/ me for years when I was a kid, so the blades darkened pretty quick....

I picked up this pre-1964 jack & folding hunter on Ebay a couple of years ago. They are both well used but have another lifetime left in them...

The nice thing about Case is they are fairly easy to date & the build quality prior to the 80's is hard to beat.

I have been selling a pocket sharpener at shows for many years..have sharpened countless knives..I can tell the hardness of the alloy,simply by sharpening it..seems the german metals are the hardest..the usa made, hold an edge the best..the others are good for cleaning fingernails and pealing fruit..most guys that want a razor edge wear beards..dont shave with them..my sharpener uses the finest quality of tungsten carbide..the metal smith here probably use it in their milling machine and lathes ..end of commercial..i have many many knives..my all time favorite is an old Old Timer..phil

Case is still USA and a good office knife. When I work I carry this knife http://www.boker.de/us/pocket-knife/cinch/11CI7474ST.html . I have had it for six years and it has good steel, German, and takes and keeps a sharp edge. Expensive though.

Tom,

If you are a hunter or not, these guys make the real deal!

I have several of these knives, mostly filet knives, but I have held and cut with the pocket folding ones too. I run them through one of THEIR sharpeners and 5 strokes it is razzzor sharp!

On might think that they are pricey, but It is worth every penny IMHO.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

There are different grades sold at different stores. It's just like buying a Cub Cadet at Lowes with a Briggs and the same one at a regular dealer that has a Kawasaki. The dealer will charge you more,but you'll come closer to getting what you paid for. I always liked the Boker Tree Brands made with Solingen steel. They topped the American steel ones.

Some Buck knives are China, some are USA made. I paid $60 for my 3" folder 4 months ago. Bought it at cabela's, made in USA. All other stores were China junk for half the price.

Tom.........understand where yer cummin' from. I picked up a folding 6-incher with "notches" near the handle off'n a peg at the hardware store. (it was "cheap" and could afford to loose it) I sharpened the "blade" part with mill-file. I use it everywhere, cuttin' bailin' string and wild rose stems. I have a multi-blade Leatherman with very sharp common blade. I used to carry a 2-blade Kersaw with folding fingernail scissors; gott loaned out and never came back. (frown) My Sunday-go-meeting knife is custom made engraved folder that my wife ordered outta the back of an airlines magazine. Super edge. I also have a 3-hone knife sharpener. Best honing oil is "gun-slick" in little toothpaste tube. I also have a "diamond" whetstone that I use on my 6"-folder. Which reminds me, gotta find my 6"-hunting knife, I know where my 12"-Bowie knife is. All I know is I gotta carry a knife (3-blade Buck) in my left pocket to balance out my keys in right pocket, otherwize I walk lop-sided. Remember, them 9-11 terrorists used cheap sliding box cutters. ........Dell, with engraved Wilkinson sword on wall

Dell.....I am surprised "they" allow YOU to carry around sharp things.

My favorite pocket knife is made in GERMANY. Has the brass anchor inlaid in the handle.
3 inches long. GENTLEMAN's knife when well dressed.

THEY made me give it up, once. So, now I just wear my single deer antler around my neck for my religious beliefs. NATURALIST.

Dell, thanks for the info. The diamond sharpeners are really good-just have to take it slow and easy or you will take away lots of metal fast. I have thought about trying a Kershaw--never have had one..

I've always carried an Old Timer. So did my Dad and my Grandfather.

I still have good luck with those.

I bought a small OT hunting knife, it is awesome!

I bought three more like that hunting knife for relatives and they are junk. :(

I guess maybe all the quality control is slipping.

Case and Schrade usually top the list.
My nephew has a Gerber that works well.

This may be superstition or supposition, but it seems the same model/brand

knife bought at a higher end sporting store isn't the same knife bought at Walmart.

I've used Old Timers over the years and have several now(different sizes and number of blades). They are definitely better than some. I think you are right about different quality knives being sold at different type stores.

There are still a few new American made Buck knifes floating around. There are some on Ebay. I found 3 stockmans in the first 4 page and 6 more pages of buck stockmans that I didn't look at.

The one I am using now was a freebee when I bought some parts from the combine junker. It is not too bad, but made in China. They made sure to print that the headquarters are in the USA (right on the blade).

I don't feel any connection to it. What happened to knives that you carried for years and felt lost without?

One I carry every day is a small, single blade Gerber-it will sharpen but is really soft(tested it on a Rockwell hardness tester)--just won"t hold an edge at all.Best knife I ever had was a Buck(I.S. made)Re-threaded a hay baler and left it on the baler-some poor cow might have had some problems later...Bought another Buck a few days later and it wasn"t worth throwing away.
