My latest love, OKC sk5 Blackbird.

My latest love, OKC sk5 Blackbird.

Postby Luftwafflles » July 13th 2017, 8:19pm

I have never spent a hundred bucks on a knife before. But I've been lusting after this one for a while. Stats: 5 inch spear point blade, 154 cm stainless steel, flat grind, g10 slabbed handle. Comfortable as hell. A lot of military guys bought this knife when it first came out. It isn't exactly a combat knife though. Nor is it exactly a bushcraft or survival knife. It's kind of a jack of all trades, master of none. Very simplistic design, but to me, gorgeous as all get out.
I woke up this morning to discover a photo of myself sleeping. I live alone.

Very nice looking, tough too.


Here is one I bought last year, it was extremely reduced as they had lost the sheath.
Bone handled, very comfortable with 4.5 inch blade.

Very nice. A definite looker. Should be easy to find a sheath for that design.

Thanks Luft, I made one out of a wide soft black leather belt. Hand stitched with a plastic lining for stiffness and protecting the stitching. Will post a pic in daylight.

Cool. I have a couple of the RAT folders. Not quite in the same league but they make some nice blades.

BOBBEE ----- that bone handle -- I wonder if that is a older version. All I could find was g-10 micarta handle ones for about a buck ten.

It's bone, and it was bought in UK and not a OKC model.
Closer pic of handle.

Here is the sheath, a bit basic but it does the job.
