You might also look for the Schrade stockman knives with the pattern number 881 (jigged handles) or 881Y (yellow handles). These are open stock knives which for all practical purposes are identical to the 8OT (Old Timer) stockman. These go up for sale in good quantities also. Now then, at some point you might also want to look at a very similar but smaller Schrade stockman knife by Schrade, the 34OT or the openstock 834. These are 3 5/16 inches closed, whereas the #8 pattern is 3 7/8 inches closed. Both would have good function as whittling knives. The 34 pattern is for sale on ebay by the tens of thousands at extremely reasonable prices. Don't let a little dirt or tarnish throw you off; look for "full" blades. But wait! There's more! There is also an old Schrade pattern called the 804, which is also a 3 blade knife which is even more adapted to whittling. Look for one with plastic handles. These will be a little pricier than the user grade #8 and #34, but if you watch you can get one for not too much money (pm me). I would like to see your whittling results when you get your blisters and finger nicks healed up.
