Knife Photography (Share knife pics you've photographed yourself)

Recommended Posts

It's been brought to my attention that some of you are excellent photographers who - plainly put - like me, love to photograph knives.

Realistically, the way I see it, what photographer wouldn't love photographing knives? They're damn photogenic! And what knife doesn't make the perfect subject ;)

Either way - this thread is my way of encouraging you who have taken some gorgeous shots of knives to share those images with us.

Share your knife porn! The world can never have too much! :)

 

Please note: this thread is for knife pictures you've taken yourself. Visit this thread to share knife porn that you didn't take!

Here's one of my favorite bushcraft knives, Mora Outdoor 2000. I've done many hard batonings and wood chopping like I just begun on this photo. You can see the piece of wood that I used as a hammer without bark from hard hitting. It was really abused, and as expected, not even a scratch on a knife. 

Here is a short video of this chopping.

And after some throwing practice, a knife once fell on a rock and the blade got damaged, so I had to regrind it, and after polishing, I just wanted to make it a bit grey-ish by putting it in ferrochloride acid. And as my father told me (he gave me this knife) that it's laminated steel, but I haven't found that information anywhere on Morakniv website... when i took it out of the acid, this interesting pattern came out. Maybe doesn't look clean like before, but i like it now even more. :)

I love the Mora 2000, those neutral handles are crazy comfortable & can take a lot of abuse. I can't believe how beat up your blade looks though, that finish definitely adds a lot of character.

Always loved the look of the Ontario M9, I tested the glock field knife a few years ago and i was shocked at how heavy it was, definitely more of a weapon rather than a tool (in my opinion)!

My usual bush blades tend to be either very lightweight Mora's or machetes that for the size are very light. One of these days ill pick up an M9 to review!

Here is my Tom Brown Tracker (TPT010). I love this knife. It's a good all around survival/bushcraft knife. 

Wow that is cool. Beast of a knife if you ask me!

This is one of my favorite large knives! The Thug by Buck Knives. This was the late Ron Hood's design finished by Buck.Buck_Thug.thumb.jpg.27dc1b04a180ff72a3ca

A well loved blade, judging by appearance. What do you think of the Hoodlum?

 

Always rockin a watch and a Victorinox Pioneer.

Very cool Kershaw, what model is it? I really like that sub-frame lock design & deep carry pocket clip!

I read through several reviews on the Hoodlum that found issues where the notch on the spine weakened the integrity of the knife causing it to break. (If you baton with your knife) For collectability I would love to have one, for practical use the Thug was a better fit for me. There  was also a smaller knife in this serries called the Punk that looks interesting too.

That was a early run Kershaw Knockout. It has the sculpting on both aluminum scales whereas now only one side is sculpted, the non locking side.
