    This knife is a R293 Remington HTT. It was made for the Hunter-Trader-Trapper magazine for a subscribtion drive for 1 year, 1930. For $3.50 you could get the knife and 12 issues of the magazine. It's one of my favorite bullet knives and a very rare one. Yes this is one of the bannana knives.

    The combination of these two blades and trapper handle are fantastic.

    Tony, good to see you here. I'll play. Here's a few of mine.

    Ivory single blade by Tony. 440V, 3.5 closed. I'm carrying to today.




    Here's one I used to carry. I've retired it because I'm afraid of messing it up, but I still like the pattern a lot.
    Case 6214 replica. New Zealand red stag, 3.25 closed, ATS34.


    My whittling knife. 440V, 3-5/8 closed


    Matching serial number 0 of the 4 inch BP from Reese and Tony:


    All get carried and used except for the pair of 0's. They are too unique. More suited for a museum than a pocket.

    I guess I just got lucky on the bone. I did not hand pick them. Two I got from a friend who hangs out around here so maybe he picked out some nice ones for me. Of the three Cases, only the muskrat has had any pocket time to speak of.
    I like a small knife for pocket carry. So of these, the Reese gets carried most.
    It gets the baby treatment though. No rough stuff.

    I'm the proud owner of one Tony Bose' knife. I bought it off the table of Les Robertson at Blade Show in 2004. I did stop by Tony's table and asked what he could tell me about the knife. He said it was a knife form back in the 80's and a pattern he didn't make any more. He thought the stag looked great, I had to agree.

    My favorites so far are the mammoth ivory wharncliffe, the HTT (awesome pattern and amazing bone) and fasteddie's ivory 440V single blade trapper. Wonderful knives.

    Most days I have a Reese Bose 3 9/16" closed green linen micarta trapper in my pocket (single clip blade in D2). Wonderful EDC knife - bought it used with a few pits in the blade and spring, so I didn't have the usual "baby it and don't let it get scratched" period to go thru. It went right in my pocket with my keys and whatever. Sorry, no pictures right now.

    fasteddie,

    Do you still have that ivory handled Bose congress? I'd love to see more pictures of that knife.

    Quick question for Tony

    I love your knives, the Warnie Trapper is on my "must have" list. But, I was wondering what you typically carry and/or your favorite. Thanks, ft
