Show your knives!

These two arrived today. The Guardian Tactical is used but a nice knife and the Vespa is flawless. I am not a fan of clone anything but damn these are nice and fit and finish is on a par with some much more expensive US made knives.

The Heretic

I always try to buy stainless knives and guns and other tools exclusively if possible, even if it costs more.

SS can rust - ask anyone who lives (or lived) on the coast, but it takes longer and it is easier to care for.
And the paint/whatever they (any knife manufacturer) puts on any steel, doesn't necessarily protect the steel - at least, not as well as you would think.

Today I noticed some bubbling of the rough covering on my KA-BAR Kukri near the handle. I scraped the paint off and sure enough, there was rust under there. I think I will take that paint off and put a patina on the whole blade and see how that works. Sure it will still rust, but at least I will probably notice it before it gets bad, and it will be easier to keep the blade clean.
