Thread: new requirement for my next knife!

  1. #1

    new requirement for my next knife!

    When selecting a knife, my specification is really quite simple. I want a knife that is not to big. It needs to be slim enough to get into the pelvic tunnel of a Deer and just long enough for bleeding. It must be easy to sharpen and hold a good edge. It needs to be dishwasher proof and have a non slip handle.
    Until today that was it. My mum has bought me a subscription to sporting shooter and it came with a free Buck knife. The box has an advisory on it.
    The sticker reads 'This product contains a chemical or substance known to the state of California to cause Cancer, Birth defects or other reproductive harm'

    So my new specification. Not too big, Slim, long enough for bleeding, dishwasher safe and finally, not give me Cancer or cause my nuts to shrivel up and die.

    Am I being too fussy!

    Cheers I F. I'm not really looking for a new knife. I use the Mora S/S normally and I might buy a Eka Fishblade next. I think the normal swingblade is a bit too broad and thick for me. I was curious what carcinogenic would be in a knife!!!

    Look no further, Alan Wood Woods walker, wince once but be happy that you've got the right tool for the job and enjoy a lifetime of use. Small enough to keyhole a munty, sturdy enough for Sika/Reds etc:

    If it's got any sort of plastic grip/bolsters I presume it will have some hydrocarbon chemical derivatives in it = carcinogen. I believe California is particularly anal about warning citizens of all possible risks to life, however trivial they may be.

    Friend of mine owns this one:



    Very nice. Wouldn't let it anywhere near a dishwasher mind!
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    I love my Jack Pyke sheath knife , good sharp blade bit rounded for most but lovely none the less.

    Mine's the one in the other photo and is apparently dishwasher proof although I still do it by hand. That damasteel looks really good.
