    Added this to the collection, a Japanese Bayonet.  A Type 30 with a hooked quillon made by Kukura.  In this picture it has the metal scabbard on it.

    @ozzie_issac. I’ll have to dig up some of the Japanese swords/knives my FIL brought back from his station in Japan at the end of the war.  He fought on Iwo Jima.

    @nolaegghead - I hope (but doubt) he spoke at least a bit about his experiences.  Having read many books about that campaign from both sides of the fighting I remain very much in awe of all those who where there.  Incredible patriotism and sense of duty across both sides.

    A true unassuming hero right there.  And there are very few of his generation among us.  Thanks @nolaegghead

    Thanks, @lousubcap  he was a beloved character, had the marine buzz until the day he died.  At 6’ 5” he was an imposing figure but the nicest guy you would ever meet.

    Picked up a new to me pocket knife today.  Nothing fancy, but it was my wife's grandmothers knife. A swiss made Wenger.


    Your wife’s grandmother must have had some deep pockets…
    She stored cast iron pans in her pockets too.  Only way to explain how she always had one available to help with attitude adjustments.
    Growing up, I heard stories of my ancestors throwing cast iron pans across kitchens and dining rooms at one another, usually aimed above the neck.

    You don’t hear about that sort of thing these days.

    We really have lost something as a society.  
    stronger walls...

     and people.
    Have:
     XLBGE / Stumps Baby XL / Couple of Stokers (Gen 1 and Gen 3) / Blackstone 36 / Maxey 3x5 water pan hog cooker
    Had:
    LBGE / Lang 60D / Cookshack SM150 / Stumps Stretch / Stumps Baby

    This just arrived.  May need to find a blue egg to match it now.

    Yup, Kizer mini-sheepdog.  My second one.  Blue scales called my name.

    My question is HOW do most of you carry your knives you use for your BGE cooking? My granddad always carried a largeish knife in a brown leather case on his belt everyday of his life. I know "pocket knives" were meant for the pocket. But...I carry a very small front pocket wallet and truck keys in the right front pocket. Medium size cell phone in the left front pocket. I currently clip a very small knife to the right front pocket but my hand is always scratched from rubbing past the knife 100 times a day. 

    Anyone carry a horizontal belt sheath for their edc BGE knife? Seems this could work although it would be somewhat exposed.
    Fish, Hunt, Cook....anything else?

    After literally waiting years to buy this thing (because of price and I am very cheap) I finally pulled the trigger. Buck knife 841 with a marbeled carbon fiber handle. Ordered it yesterday and am now waiting for it to come in before my up north trip.

    In my front right pocket.  I only cross draw pistols, not knives.

    From https://knifeup.com/massachusetts-knife-law/

    There is no knife ban in Massachusetts.

    Limits on Carry

    • It is illegal to carry, open or concealed, switchblades, dirks, daggers, stilettos, ballistic knife, double edge knives, and knuckle knives.
    • It is illegal to carry anything that is perceived as dangerous while disturbing the peace or being arrested.
    • Folding knives, Swiss army knives, and kitchen knives are legal to carry as long as you do not behave in a way that makes them dangerous.

    Our setups sound identical.   However I don’t go into the right pocket for my keys but a couple times per day and it doesn’t seem to bother me with the deep carry pocket clips.   I’m sure now I’ll focus on it and it will get to me.  Ha

    Agree with that and I don’t cross draw that often but sometimes it makes sense…

    lots of town ordinances limit the blade length to 2.5 inches. mid 80's after the national guard arrived to lawrence to stop the spanish (puerto rico and dominican republic)and french canucks from killing each other they enforced blade size in most of my area and its still on the books. mostly the law doesnt enforce this but they can make it an issue. its even an issue getting the one hand opening style knives that are easily flicked open shipped here from some places because of how dumb the law has been written

    Anyone have any experience with steel type CPM MagnaCut?    Looking at a Pro-Tech (which I've never had either) that could be enticing.

    I can't help you out with the blade steel but I don't think you can go wrong with anything Pro-Tech.

    Hmm, that looks intriguing, similar hardness to SV35N, but supposedly much better toughness?  Edge retention like SV90 with more toughness would be pretty neat trick.

    Ah crap, thanks for the feedback but never mind.   I hadn’t bothered to check the blade length and it’s only 1.9”.     I already have a Spyderco that’s the same length that I never use so won’t be wasting $ on this one.   

    Back to the drawing board for a “want” - but I “need” another pocket knife like I need … well I digress

    I just ordered a Spyderco Military with M4 steel which I have no experience with but I love the Mili and the handle is a cool color.
