I've made a few and will make more.



I like the whole idea of making them but find style the hardest part.

Some people value bling over function,and that just doesn't sit well with a tool maker.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Columbia river makes some great stuff. I've had the same M16 in my pocket everyday for 12 years and it is still in great shape.

It's my first knife from them and I really dig the quality for the price. The spring assist opening is really cool too, another first for me.

I've always been a huge fan of Kershaw. Great product and the speed safe assisted opening is about the best I've ever used.

Custom made from a friend. Its basically my letter opener.


I'm looking into an every day carry knife now, probably a benchmark, although the Spyderco outlet is pretty close to me.

Since someone else put up Kitchen Knives, this is what I have and love them. Although they have spoiled me and now I absolutely hate using most people's knives. They are always so dull.

Huge knife collector and enthusiast. 99% of my entire collection is Spyderco, with a couple Benchmade products thrown in there. Way too many pictures to show.

This isn't the exact knife I ordered, but it's close. Mine is slightly smaller, it's a copy of the Joker knife.

SENGVIN, beautiful collection! I stopped collecting knives years ago, because I wanted to spend my money on something I could actually *use* without feeling guilty or devaluing greatly.

Now I just have a couple collectible Benchmade Balisong, and my hand made camp knife that my friends bought my for my birthday last year. (damnit, I have zero photos of knives online...I'll have to remedy that)

He has a great book out that is definitely worth a read. I've been working with a local (in AZ) forger to make my first. A 10in chefs knife, full tang with a whale bone handle.

Since this is turning into a "show us your knives" thread, here are our two John Greco customs. The big one is a Greco Explorer, Camp Knife, and the smaller one is the Whisper fighting knife. I actually use my knives, so I try not to get rare and collectible ones...though I have some old Benchmade Balisong in storage somewhere.

If any of you knife collectors know where I can get more John Greco knives, please chime in! I called him the other day, and due to health issues he's semi-retired and no longer making big camp knives or hatchets, only "classics" and smaller knives.

I'm already regretting selling this one...but it's somewhat rare, collectible, and no longer made. This was my Swamp Rat Waki (aka my Zombie Killer). John Greco used to make short swords like this with the thick 3/8" blades, so I'm kinda looking for one since I'd actually use it while camping in place of an axe.
