Watched a video on YouTube on Laguiole pattern knives – it was in French so I didn’t get a lot out of it – except the knives caught my eye – started looking at them and the prices were nose bleed and up – Damn Frogs are PROUD of their stuff . . .
Ran across DKCKNIVES.COM and went through their site – DKC’s products looked good – and the prices were reasonable – went to their stuff on Amazon to peruse through all their stuff – their newest offerings are on their site – all their available stuff is on Amazon – WOW! – what an assortment – finally decided on the “White Prince” model – $76.00 and 2 days later this little darling came to her new home . . .
Comes in a decent sheath . . .
I admit I was excited – I whipped it out . . .
Most times a lot folks consider me cynical or jaded – I buy “stuff” that I have zero experience with – either the company or their products – and I for the most part have zero expectations. I’ll save all that for when it comes out of the box – Bruce – that’s a terrible way to be! – Not really – Zero Expectations equals Zero Disappointments. From the reviews I read on DKC’s products I freely admit I was expecting something nice – maybe a step or two above that . . .
File work on the liner and blade . . .
File work on the spine . . .
A look at the scale and bolster fitment . . .
A close up of the spine – remember folks – these are built by hand . . .
I really couldn’t find a “bad” angle to take a picture . . .
Tried to get a good pic of the fit between the spine side of the liner, bolster, and scale . . .
Out of 20+ pics this was the best one – cellphones – you either love to hate them or hate to love them . . .
All y’all cruise through these next knife
porn pics – I promise I won’t disturb you until you get to the text at the bottom – LMAO!!
I admit I am IMPRESSED – I actually had some expectations – I wouldn’t go as far to say high expectations – when I got the knife and handled it – and then fondled it – and then lovingly caressed it – and then – Oh My My! – Excuse me while I go take a shower and a nap . . .
Alrighty then – I’m back . . .
Completely enamored with it – I only have one issue with the whole thing – Which one do I buy next?? – This little “White Prince” knife by DKC is drop dead beautiful – feels good in the hand – Sharp?? – DKC’s Damascus blades are like 220 plus layers of steel and coming out of the box is “Damn – Be CAREFUL with that thing – you’re liable to cut your hootenanny off with it” sharp – RFS – Real Fucking Sharp!!
I am leaning toward <<< THIS ONE >>> only without the pocket clip and with a sheath – a little something nice for daily carry – That’s an understatement if there ever was one.
All you folks who every day carry a knife – or two – or like some of us – three – Looking for something real different looks-wise and the big one – quality-wise and just can’t take a deep enough breath to drop $500 or more on a knife?? Trot your happy ass over to DKC and pick one of their gems up – They have some truly incredible stuff available . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
