    On stainless knives use a diamond hone. Couple of swipes and the edge is back. Use the knife 2,3 times they are dull. Won't hold edge.

    Rooster, when you look for a wife, don't go on beauty, she will beat you every time, look for loyalty. I lost my best one 4 years ago. I don't plan on a replacement, I'm going the rest of the way solo.

    I got this knife in the early 70s in a trade. It is a Gerber Magnum Hunter.

    Pardon the camera strap in the photo

    I use it often and it still holds an edge well and the handle is made of a metal composite material that is easy to hold even when covered in crappie innards.

    The bottm two kukri's in your photo look like they have the British military "Broad Arrow" ( aka Crowsfoot ) stamp on them.

    I started "collecting" back in the late 1990s - knives, daggers, short swords, etc. All from various countries. Found them all at gun auctions, general auctions or at gun shows. Didn't realize how many I had and how beautiful some were, until I move a couple years back and got them all together for picture portraits. Here's a couple pics of the more spectacular items:
    "Matched pair of Ceremonial Doummya style Jambiya from Northern Morocco, silver on wood with inlaid stones and colored glass
    IMG_3373_2.jpg
    Possibly Malay? or Javanese - from handle - can't match with any reference with syckle blade - coral and brass inlay
    IMG_3390.jpg
    North African Jambaya - camel bone grip, silver on wood, inlaid stones
    IMG_3407.jpg
    Azeri Sword - a combination of Yatagan and Kama styles -Azerbaijan

    If you're interested in seeing other interesting blades, let me know.

    The first one is a tanto. the third one is a style of parang, I think. The last one is a more modern "medieval" type.

    My husband is a historical swordsmith who began making edged weaponry in the mid 1950s. He uses traditional methods of hammer, anvil and a coalfired forge to make these with. He uses Spring steel to make his blades with and tempers them using age old methods instead of furnace hardening. I met him in 1971 during a medieval reenactment event and so most of my blades were made by him.

    So depending on what events we go to, I have a 1745 style Scottish dirk, a mid 9th Century Viking Age Seax and sword. An American Mountain Man era "hawk" and belt knife. Also a few axes, a spear and most anything else needed...we make ourselves ;)
