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.
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

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.
