so you know I can't come to a place that has a knife forum and not show off a couple of my babies. More to follow. Top blade is a numbered stainless carving knife, LOA is 22", if I remember correctly. Bought it at a restaurant supply house in Chicago, forget the name of the knifemaker. I told the guy at the supply house I wanted to butcher hogs, and that is what he recommended. 2nd down is my SOG Pentagon Elite II, 11 1/2" overall aka "The Monster Truck of folding knives." The 3rd knife is a SOG Pentagon Elite, the fixed blade version, double edged and 11" long. Very nasty that one. Bottom knife is a Protech Auto. The blade is CFM154, so hard it took me months to get the factory scoring off the edge. It's so sharp it will cut a human hair lengthwise and it's so fast it seems to just appear when you press the button. But be careful, they WILL open in carry, fingers beware.
