 Pocket Knife

Looking for a very good brand of pocket knife to buy for grandson (age 3 now) for later in life. One he will be able to tote and use but to be proud of. Looks is easy but the blades vary. Suggestions appreciated. Also where to buy. I have bought most of mine from Smokey Mountain Knife Works. Thanks

Buck knives here in Portland seems to have a very good reputation, although I know little about knives.

I like Buck knives and toted one for years. Thought I was the reason the blade would not hold an edge. Was told it was the metal in Buck blades. Found others had same problem with same type of Buck knives. The knives I had was a folding pocket model 303. Any idea of they use the same blades in all their knives? Or how to know the difference in the metal?

Buck, Case, Gerber and Old Timer

Try EBAY and see if you can find some older ones that may be worth something.

Have you considerd a nice quality multi-tool.They are so practical. I always loved knives growing up, but found the swiss army able to many things I realy didn't need. I like the leatherman series (super tool 200), but there are many out there now that are made really well and are specialized very nicely.

Kenny: Not usre this answers your implied question of probably making comparisons between knifes, but generally speaking you can determine the type of steel or alloys by simply lightly touching it (or any type of metal) to a grinding wheel sufficent enough to produce a few sparks. I don't know the name of the books or reference materials but machinists, welders, and tool-and-die makers sometimes use them. The reference materials will show several different pictures or photos of the spark patterns. If anything, it's interesting to see what types of sparks can be made by different metals.

Don't want to hi-jack the thread...

Kessler: Are you related to any Kesslerings from Germany or Penn.-Deutch/Amish? If so we might be related. If you like you can reach me privately at earthwerks-jeff "at" hotmail "dot" com

Bucks web site says that S30V is the best blade steel available. It is supposed to be a high vanadium stainless steel with even higher edge retention. Some of their knives use that steel and others don't. The ones that do seem to cost quite a bit more.

There are several different blade materials commonly used. All have different edge retention and sharpening properties.

Cheap knives are made from stainless steels that are hard to sharpen and dull very quickly.

Below is a link to a primer on blade steels:

The thing about knife sharpening and how long it'll hold an edge is the intended use and angle of sharpening.

I had a buck knife that I FOUND IN BOX OF AUCTION STUFF.
IT WAS THE "DUKE" MODEL, THE BLADE WAS CRACKED AT THE KEEL.
SENT IT BACK TO BUCK AND THEY REPLACED THE BLADE FOR FREE UNDER THIER LIFE TIME WARRANTY. BESIDES THAT IT IS A NICE KNIFE.
THE BEST I THINK I HAVE EVER HAD WAS A SCHARADE "UNCLE HENRY" LOCK BACK. THAT KNIFE DID 4 YRS IN THE ARMY WITH ME AND IT HELP ME CUT MYSELF OUT OF A TREE ON A BAD NIGHT JUMP AND I LOST IT THAT NIGHT !!!!!;( ITS IN SOME FORREST IN GERMANY RUSTING.
ALTHOUGH THESE ARE BIG POCKET KNIVES AND MIGHT BE CONSIDERED A WEAPON BY SIZE IN SOME STATES.
I DO NOT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT MY LEATHERMAN "MICRO" AND I KEEP HIS BIG BROTHER "SUPERTOOL" IN THE "JUNK" DRAW IN THE HOUSE
