I found several including some newer ones in perfect shape I use today.
This is one of my favorites, a small pen knife.

Not really a knife but I found this great cleaver a couple years ago near the ruins of a former mental institution. It was in terrible shape at first but I think it turned out OK after a little cleaning.

I've only ever found two pocket knives (and on fishing knife). This here is the better of the two. The other knife is a cheap tactical pocketknife.

Solid Silver circa 1860 found in Galveston TX using Lobo SuperTRAC

These knives were called "fruit knives" used for peeling and cutting acidic table fruit before the advent of Stainless Steel, Ceramics, Kryptonite, (pre Clark Kent of course) and other non corrosive metals.

This little SOG knife has really come in handy. I don't carry a pocket knife daily, but I keep one in the cars, scooters and boats so I always have one close. I'm surprised at the quality of this key knife. It has held an edge well and I have overworked it many times. I paid the knife shop at Bass Pro $2 to round the broken tip and sharpen it. You can't tell it was broke.

I found a cool, great shape Swiss Army knife up in Tahoe last year. Needed a new scissor spring, but my best knife find. I did find a Buck knife too but this is the best so far.

Congrats on some nice knifes found on this thread. I've found a few knifes on the beach, here's part of a handle, found land hunting. Looks like a patriotic design

I once found a $200 Benchmade auto in perfect condition. It was mine. Dropped it the day before.
