Default Cool Knives at Touch of Modern

Not sure if all you guys get emails from Touch of Modern, and you probably
already know about all of the brands that they carry I imagine. But know that
we have a lot of knife fans here, and was hoping you might enjoy a look at
some of the ones they have.

Have the link right here everyone. Hope you really enjoy...

It seems that one has to have an account to log in. At least, that's what I encounter.

Apologies Frans. So sorry. ..You know was thinking how I never signed
up, or even have a password or anything. But I get the emails like this.

Somehow must have been automatically signed up through my email
account without even knowing, or actually signing up to get the emails
sir.

I'm in now. And don't worry about trivial issues like these, sometimes a site 'looks' at your IP address and if that is NOT originating from a certain area (e.g. US) you are barred. (Due to European privacy laws for instance). I just shrug my shoulders and move on.

Back to the subject. I have a smaller version of a knife like that one but my heart lies with traditional pocket knives. 'Vintage' you know

Oh good, very cool Frans ! Don't know why they have to make it
so difficult. Whether it's having an acoount, or those privacy laws you are
talking about. ..I mean all we want to do is look at some nice knives right?!

Yup, totally remember your phenomenal collection of pocket knives you
have Frans ! There were so many different styles, and types with the
coolest designs, and details honestly. ..You could see they were made so
well, and very unique just like vintage watches !

That's why I like that stuff so much, be it watches, vintage range finder cameras, pocket knives and vintage clockwork film cameras. I've got it all. Almost a museum, sometimes to the discontent of Mrs. GoodWatch

Has to be almost too much fun Frans, and if watches, or this hobby
itself is this great all by itself. Than can only imagine how amazing it must
be having multiple extraordinary hobbies like you do sir !

Just really is the best how you got into all of them !

Almost all of it can be traced back to the same origin: a rather austere childhood. Never went hungry, never without cloths but my parents never had money for extras, it was how it was. All I could do was press my nose against shop-windows and dream. The latter has helped me a lot in later life.

This in fact lasted until I landed my first job (for a temp agency) and I finally earned my own money. After my service in the ARMY I got employed with a Dutch multinational and many years later this enabled me to fulfil some of those childhood dreams.

So I started on a small quest to buy some of the things from my youth. Chemistry set, Spirograph set, Mastermind game, original Rubik's Cube, some iconic Dutch children's books, etc. And later a whole collection of vintage rangefinder cameras (took me years but thankfully in a time they were just 10 to 30 dollar a piece, now the prices have skyrocketed), a 1947 Olympus microscope in wooden box for only 50 Euro and it is like new. I always wanted a microscope as a child and those sets were very popular in the early Seventies but alas, too expensive.

The final stint has been three Bolex clockwork film cameras and a 1920s crystal radio set complete with matching headphones (I had to buy three to assemble one in good order). Plus lenses, grips and other accessories.

If you think I'm doing this to fill a void you are right. It sometimes took me months to locate that one missing lens or electric motor but herein lies most of the fun! There's more but that would take too long to describe.

The watches however have been a steady factor for many years and will remain to be so.

My only comment is to watch out with the Damascus steel knives. I bought one and it’s made in Pakistan and has extremely poor fit and finish. Looks really cool, but crafted so poorly that the blade edge rests on metal when closed. They removed too much material on the blade where the case stops the blade. There’s no way to fix it.

I suspect all of the Damascus knives come from the same place.

This really is just the best hearing about all of this like this sir !

Can really only imagine how exciting it has been tracking down all of
those terrific childhood items, and refreshing some of those amazing
memories at the same time. ..It's going to be unbelievably cool when
the hunt for everything is completed.

Then who knows, then maybe another new hunt can begin Frans !

In any case, honestly can't say enough how great it was to hear about, or
read about all of this. ..Thanks so very much !!!

I ordered a Claude Dozorme about a year ago from A Touch of Modern and the knife .is a French Laguiole pocket knife. I became a knife collector from that point. I have many Laguioles, Opinels, and a couple of Cold Steels but my coolest one is my L'Epicurien by Robert David with horn scales.

@robotazky
I have one of those (Laguiole clone), but I think mine is made in China. The blade is not too bad. I also have an original Indonesian Kris, this is a ceremonial dagger and they are not only works of art but also are believed to have spiritual powers. They are made following the same principle as Damascus steel. We have been to a Kris museum in Jakarta and the craftsmanship of these daggers is outstanding. The older and more elaborate ones (once owned by Indonesian princes and royalty) are just beautiful and extremely rare now.

But my wife (who is of Indonesian descent) is not very content with me owning one. A Kris has a soul and has to be given during an elaborate ceremony and not purchased or else it will bring bad fortune. Because of that I no longer keep it in our home but store it elsewhere.

Such an awesome recollection; thank you! Kinda made me realize why all of a sudden, I've begun collecting. I also was never hungry as a child (grew up on a farm in the midwest USA) but also never had any kind of luxuries. I used to collect comic books as a teen/young adult but divested when we moved. I'm certainly not wealthy now, but I can afford to buy a watch or 2 (or more as you all have witnessed...) Still not sure what sparked my watch thing, but time is of the essence!
