My son bought me this for my birthday:
Getting a server error trying to upload a pic. Hmmmmm????
Any way, its a Smith * Wesson cuttin' horse in caom, model CH0029CP. I was able to get a real nice edge on it. A little large for a pocket knife, but has a belt clip.

I went to Walmart, they didn't have the kind of knife I was looking for. After that I tried another sporting goods store and they had a couple hundred knives easy, the prices were over the top though. Alot of the knives they had I saw online for less then half the price, after shipping.

If your looking or a quality knife, I highly recommend the SOG twitch XL. I has been the best knife I have carried. Blade holds up well and can handle getting dirty and still work reliably.

Mines a little different! Let me try the pic thing again!
S&W cuttinhorse.jpeg
It is camo colored with a straight blade, no saw tooth. It is about 4.375" closed. Good metal in the blade, holds an edge well!

Looks like its a good one. Knives with the square handles dont appeal to me though.

I've owned quite a few good knives. My favorite for a number of years now has been the Kershaw Leek.

Glad you found a replacement Ryan, I know what its like to not have your favorite knife on hand. I am lost if I dont have my Leatherman tool with me. I carry an old Case in my pocket that was my Grandfathers when we go out somewhere that is not appropriate for my tool hanging from my belt. Never know when you will need one but be assured if you dont have one you will need it!!

Chris, that looks like a very high quality knife! Ill look to see what I can find from that brand. I know what a knife that cost a penny will not be very good. I just want something sharp, that I can use and abuse!

Greg, that is exactly the way it is. I had that knife, and 13 others but it does not matter one bit, that was "my knife."

I watched more youtube videos on the Kershaw Leek and nothing bad. I looked on ebay and they had a bunch for only 0.99 with 3.15 shipping. I think im going with a leek!

I found my knife! I thought I would go look for haha's and I found it! It was right were I finish mowing, it makes sense too. When I finished I shifted my shorts around and stretched out and it fell out of my pocket! It had a lot of dirt in it before I lost it and when opening it you could hear it grind the grit stuck inside, now it has a lot of dirt in it and I will see if I can take it apart to clean it out.

Glad you found it, Ryan. Blow some air thru it and flush with WD-40/? If you have PB Blaster, use that.

I've carried an "electrician's knife" for years, would be lost without it now. Can't find them with the "hawk-bill" blade anymore (that aren't way too thick). The one I carry now has one "spear" blade & one locking screwdriver blade;

I started carrying a multi-tool several years ago and would be nigh on lost without one (or two as I sometimes have a Gerber and a Leatherman LOL)
