    I guess it depends on the frame and what the knife is intended for. I don't care as long as it looks good, I like both Turkish and regular clip blades. I have more knives with Turkish clips than regular ones, but that doesn't mean I preffer them. I really like the Turkish clip on the #66 slim I got from Will. It's just so nice. But on the jack version of the #66 the regular clip looks better.

    That's the right answer. I like the Remington frame and overwhelmingly prefer single blade slipjoints, and the blade on this Bose is as close to perfect as I've seen.

    The recently released #74 Stallions come close to it. Understandably I've become very fond of this knife in a very short time.

    +1. Those are really good.

    That's a good-looking knife all the way around. Wonderful bone and jigging.

    I certainly find this hard to argue with, and the example on this mint #881Y is particularly pleasing, with a very pointy tip.

    The concave clip works very well on this design, making it look as sleek as one with a longer clip. The sheepfoot on this one is nice and pointy, too!

    I tend to like blades with strength in the design, but aren't bulky. I think the Turkish/California clip makes a great slicer, but the broad traditional just seems to be more capable overall. My preference is the traditional clip.

    The Turkish clips definitely work best on long slender frames such as the upcoming GEC 38's

    The new 48's are another example of a long, slender knife that look good with a Turkish clip.

    I like pretty much all of them, but I really like a slim serpentine stock man when the blade spine follows the curve of the handle in the closed position. Like the 897 u. H.
    If I could find a knife like that in carbon steel with a real stag, or maybe bone handle, then that might just be the grail for me.
