Fixed Blades

A fixed blade knife, fixed knives, straight blade knife and straight knives, sometimes called sheath knives, do not fold or slide, and are usually stronger than folding knives due to the tang and lack of moving parts.

Knife blades can be made from a variety of materials. Carbon steel can be very sharp and hold its edge well, and remains easy to re-sharpen, but is vulnerable to rust and stains. Stainless steel may not able to take quite as sharp an edge as carbon steel, but is highly resistant to corrosion. High carbon, stainless steel is intended to incorporate the better attributes of both. Laminate blades use multiple metals to create layers, combining the attributes of both also. Pattern-welding layers different steel types to create patterns in the steel. Titanium has a better strength-to-weight ratio, is more wear resistant, and more flexible than steel, but less hard and unable to take as sharp an edge. Ceramic blades are hard, brittle, and lightweight: they can maintain a sharp edge for years with no maintenance, but are fragile. They are immune to common corrosion.

Handle material can also vary greatly and includes many types of wood, antler, bone, horn and synthetics like acrylic and G-10. Sheaths are usually Kydex or leather.

Fixed blades, fixed knives, straight blade knife, straight knives play a significant role in some cultures through ritual and superstition. Knife symbols can be found in various cultures and were included burial rites, so the dead would not be defenseless in the next world. A common belief is that if a knife is given as a gift, the relationship of the giver and recipient is severed. An item of value, as little as a penny, is exchanged for the gift, rendering "payment" thus completing the transaction and saving the relationship. 

There are many styles to choose from in this section and many uses including combat, camping, self defense, survival, hunting, diving, and bushcraft. It’s not unusual to have one around for EDC carry for utility purposes as well. Some of the most popular styles are the bowie, bayonet, machete, karambit, wakizashi and tanto.

Review of: Damascus Micro Skinner

First, item arrived earlier (2 days) than was estimated.  Big plus.  The knife is gorgeous and has  good balance weighted rearwards towards the handle; very solid.  Full tang, made from 5/32" stock.  Blade was sharp, I tuned it up to razor sharpness in a minute or so.  Even the leather sheath is nice and well made.  The pictures are very accurate and show the true item.  This was a steal at the price, I am very pleased.

Review of: Western Boot Knife

At the time I purchased this knife it was being sold for $39.95. I paid the additional $15 for sharpening, which gives you a basic sharp edge to work with - - a crock stick will make it hair-popping sharp with just a few strokes. The wood for the handle isn't identified, but looks like cocobolo. The carbon steel blade is close to a mirror finish, and is coated with a protective finish that prevents rusting, but which can be removed with a bit of elbow grease.

The sheath is wood with black leather glued onto it and stitched, with nickel silver throat and tip. There is no belt loop or frog for attaching it to belt or boot.

The knife looks like the one that Ian McShane carried as Al Swearengen in the HBO series *Deadwood.* Al carried such a knife in his boot. It would make a good knife for a Western reenactor.

Review of: Rams Horn Big Game Damascus Skinner

I bought this knife for one of my knife sheath projects.  Over the last 20 years, I have made fully beaded knife sheaths for the knives that I have purchased from Atlanta Cutlery.  I liked this one because of the Rams Horn scales.  Since it is a Damascus steel knife, it looks the part of an old knife that would have been used to skin large game animals in the 19th Century.  It is nicely made.  It would be a great addition to any Damascus knife collection.  The price was definitely right!
