Here is Korth's Sentry flipper model, this one has an anodized Titanium frame carved with a cool skull with a snake slithering about. Other features of this knife are a CPM S30V blade, traction grooves atop the blade for a firm purchase, grooved Gray G10 back-spacer and the pocket clip, set for tip up carry, is also carved with a skull. This knife also has the renowned IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) developed by Flavio Ikoma and the Lala brothers. The knife flips with the greatest of ease. Serial #018. The carved Korth knives are highly sought after collectibles.








On a side note....
I know there is about 200 or so knives whose pics I dont have. They are knives either sold a while ago, in the collection, or were owned before Knifeology got it's start and have been traded/sold.

Soon as I get those photos (about 2500 or so of them, from the filesize I saw) I'll get more regular updates. The slowdown I've been doing is because the knives purchased are from a small group of highly skilled artisans or up and coming tactical makers. Dont want to post variations of the same old thing every couple of days, know what I mean?

IM BACK.


Michael Burch d/b/a Burchtree Bladeworks is one of the hot new stars of the tactical knife world. His creative and distinctively styled custom knives get snapped up pretty much as they become available. This piece, a Modified Tangent is fresh from the 2010 Las Vegas Tactical Invitational Show. This knife features a blade of 1095 with Michaels signature Hamon and a really cool grind, Titanium frame and pocket clip with a blasted and distressed finish, Mokume bolster and Carbon Fiber scale overlays, lanyard hole, black G10 file worked back-spacer, ambidextrous thumb-studs and the back of the blade is file worked for a secure thumb rest. A lot going on with this beautiful custom tactical knife.

Ernest Emerson custom CQC6 with Damascuc blade. This is only the second one of these made; there are more than two out there, though not many. What can I say; one of the rarest knives that you will find. Acquired this at the 2010 Tactical Invitational. An extremly rare knife that will become the highlight of someones collection.

and now for a $12,750 knife.

Here is a wonderful offering combining the talents of two great artists; from knife making legend Bob Loveless, a rare and desirable Loveless Dagger engraved by the renowend artist Dan Wilkerson. Loveless made very few daggers and Wilkerson, now deceased engraved a limited number of knives. Bob Loveless and Dan Wilkerson were known for their collaborations and these knives are highly sought after. This double nude logo dagger, serial #109, features a stainless guard , double-edged blade, rag Micarta handles, red liners, lanyard hole and beautiful engraving with Gold inlay work. This knife is one of those rare pieces that is needed in any serious Loveless collection.

Been in DC all week.

Here's a new Strider.

This is a Duane Dwyer Custom SnG Strider knife. This knife was a new release at the February East Coast Custom Knife Show. The knife is called Acid Rain, check out the finish and it is obvious why! features of this knife are; frame lock, oversized pivot, dual titanium thumb studs with an oval opener, Indexing Lock Scallop. Lockbar Stabilizer. Serrated Thumb ramps on the top of the frame and on the top of the blade, Acid Rain finished pocket clip tip up carry. There were only six of these released and the Strider guys could not say if there would be any more. Wicked cool compound chisel blade grind.

This is a Chubby model from Michael Burch. This custom knife features an Alabama damascus blade, a stonewashed and distress finished Titanium frame (please note that the marks on the frame are part of the finish)and tip up pocket clip, black G10 back spacer, lanyard hole and black Sting Ray handle inserts. This knife is just back from the Burchtree Bladeworks spa and ready to rock and roll.

(this knife is three inches closed.)

Also, the artist is a local from around Kansas City. He and a couple others like to hit up Outlaw every now and then. So yeah...KC has some stellar makers.

HOLY SHIT.

Two days in a row, we might be back on track!

Too many tactical stuff, now for art.

Rick Genovese makes very few knives each year. This exquisite folding lock-back inter-frame dagger by Rick features flawless fit and finish, a finely hand rubbed satin finished blade of ATS-34, the 416 stainless frame contains beautiful and rare Black Edwards Jade inter-frame inlays. The highlight of this knife is the amazing engraving expertly executed by Master Engraver Brian Hochstrat. Brian used a Florid Victorian style engraving in solid gold to frame the Art Nouveau Liberty style engraving which is done in gray scale resulting in a wonderful work of art reminiscent of the great Italian Masters.

KW, I heard you liked Mammoth.

R J Martin Custom Knife. This is R J Martin's recently debuted Overkill model. The Overkill is basically a Q-36 design, but with full .160" thick tumbled titanium frames set up for inlays. This Overkill features mammoth Ivory inlays, a S30V blade with a fine stone washed finish, black G 10 back-spacer, lanyard hole, the rear of the blade is groved for positive thumb hold and a Titanium pocket clip which is set for tip up carry. This knife has the Roller Thrust Bearing system that R J is known for and provides for that great flipping action.

This is a custom tactical small model 21 knife from Kit Carson. This is the most beautiful model 21 I have seen. This knife features a Mike Norris Sun Storm Stainless Damascus blade and bolsters, ambidextrous thumb-studs and some of the best Stag scales I have seen. Kit Carson is one of todays top tactical custom knife makers.

Too much tactical on this page...

This set is a very interesting one, we had these submitted to a couple magazines, the maker, John Young is very very well known maker, this set is the most expensive item we've ever posted on the site. It's something he's never done, and the model of knife is a new one.

A year in the making, a unique three knife set collaboration by John Young and Ray Cover Jr. This One-of-a-Kind Set, with the theme of knife handles commonly made from the horns of Big Game Animals, is based on a new model from John Young, this is his Modified Chute knife. These knives are numbered 1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3 of 3, their handles are of premium quality Stag, Cape Buffalo and Bighorn Sheep. The engraving from Master Engraver Ray Cover Jr. depicts a head view of the animals whose horns comprise the handle material of the respective knife, the same animal is in profile on the reverse side of the knife bolster. The set is housed in a custom built French fitted case from the Huey Gun Case Company, which is known for building custom cases for high end custom guns.

Jens Anso Custom Knife. This is a Jens Anso Funk fresh from the 2010 Blade show. This knife features a hand finished RWL-34 blade with spydie hole opener, stonewashed titanium frame, a blue/green G10 scale that has been Techno Textured, a lanyard hole and a blue glow in the dark back spacer (this is a new material Jens is trying out, similar to moon glow but from a different manufacturer). The backspacer has blue G10 with the blue moon glow material sandwiched in between. Very Cool!

No knife photo today. Watching "Killers," saw Ashton Kutcher playing with his Emerson Knife...totally remembered I got to talk with him a year ago.

Time to learn about celebrities that enjoy knives.

1. Ashton Kutcher. Met him at Blade 2009. He is actually cool. He carries an Emerson on him pretty much at all times, including on that "Killers" movie he did. He is totally not as big a douchebag as you'd think he is. Really cool to talk too, I was incredibly surprised.



2. James Spader (Boston Legal, probably my favorite show involving lawyers). Met him at The New York Custom Knife Show, will probably see him later this month. He is a major fan of Bose Knives



3. Zac Brown, very nice guy, great wife and two kids, he was really chill, very shy about his whole "celebrity" he's gained...and knife people like country music apparently, so I hear. Got to meet him at Blade 2010, was very quiet about his knife collection, he's all about hunter type knives.



4. Gabe Newell (Owner of Valve Corporation, maker of Half-Life). He was at Blade 2010 as well, that was just pure "holy shit" for me, but yeah, he is a major collector of art knives, his collection is apparently one of the largest out there in the US.



5. Joe Pantoliano (dude from the Matrix that turned out to be a fucker). Douchebag. He shows up to Blade every year as well, we don't pay him any attention.



There's a few more I've known about, but I've had the chance to meet these guys. It has been awesome.

KNIFES A-GO-GO.

This is a knife Batman would carry:

Strider MSC Knife. This is a Strider Mick Strider Custom SNG with a laminated Carbon Fiber and Titanium blade. The scales are sculpted Carbon Fiber and the frame is anodized and sculpted Titanium. The clip is a concealed carry anodized Titanium. These piece is amazingly lightweight and comfortable in the hand and there are only a few of these around and each unique.

OMG, this thing is hot...

This is a Jerry Marsh Mini-Assassin, a super hot knife from a super hot maker. This knife features bolsters, back bar, ambidextrous thumb studs and a pocket clip, set for tip-up carry, all of Carbon Fiber, a Nichols Damascus blade with a wicked grind, Blue/Black G-10 scales, maroon liners and a Titanium frame anodized blue. This is one amazing knife in design and execution. This is a rare chance to own a very special knife.

A knife I designed

A Joe Kious Custom Knife with Jon Robyn Engraving. This is a new knife model from Joe Kious, actually this is a modification of his coke bottle pattern especially designed to offer equal ends for engraving. This knife features inlays of Black Edwards Jade, a file-worked backbar and a Gold lock. The engraving, with inlays of Gold and Copper, is by Master Engraver Jon Robyn. The engraving tells a story with characters reminiscent of the 1940's. On the display side of the knife a man and a women at a bar, two Strangers in the Night, share a glance at each other. On the back side they have now found each other, you can complete the rest of the story. a great Art Knife for a great collection, maybe yours.

Think of them as works of art, guy's jewelry. Lots of people pay that and more. Pretty much everybody collects something, who would pay $1000 for a baseball card?

This is a Salvatore Puddu two bladed double lock back "Pump" model featuring presentation grade black lip pearl inlays, gold screws, filed liners plated in gold, ATS-34 blades with file-worked spines, high polished 416 stainless frame, dual gold locks and the masterful engraving of Valerio Peli of the famous Creative Arts group of Italy. The many talented Italian knife makers of the Italian Cutlers Guild (C.I.C. Corporazione Italiana Coltellinai) are beginning to gain recognition and acclaim in the "New World" for their fresh and appealing designs. Salvatore, Vice President of the C.I.C., is a full time maker specializing in multi-blade lock backs. His fit and finish is flawless. There is a long wait list to obtain one of Salvatore's knives and I can only imagine it getting longer as his recognition increases.

You said Ashton Kutcher carries and Emerson daily... which one does he carry?
Sounds kinda gay, and I'm not a fan of him, but just wondering.

I have two of these:
