Case 61549 L SS Copperlock Dark Amber Barb Wire Bone
Going with econmic knives today. If you don't count the Leatherman on my belt I think 25 bucks would cover this Rough Rider and also carrying my Opinel #8!
Spent a short weekend in Tuftenboro, NH. Carried these three.
A buddy that has been hanging around lately...
Some old things are warm still with life of the men who made them...
GEC SFO "Schrade" leaf-spring automatic in Pumpkin Patch acrylic, based on the #73 frame. The old-school Jaeger/Aerial-style lockback release lever has smooth action, 100% solid lockup and allows easy one-hand closing.

Whoa! That knife is amazing, Rick.
Today, I tried out Rick's cider vinegar patina method on a GEC #53 "Yellow Rose". I dig the results.
Rick, please start a thread on that great knife so this thread doesn't get hijacked. I need to see more of this knife. Never seen an auto like this and fortunately I live in a state that allows autos.
Wait a minute .....living in Los Angels pumpkins and Fall already..are you sure this isn't one of those famous San Onfre pumpkin patch pumpkins ?....and for those that aren't familiar with the Schrade auto's this is the sixth or seventh handle variations starting a couple of years ago from Great Eastern...
Okay, I have to ask. How does that auto work??
The only autos I have are out the front double actions. I look at those pictures and I am very confused, posibbly because I am very uninformed about autos.
It is very cool, but I will like it even more once it stops confusing me
Beautiful knife Rick! I've wanted one for a long time... The only time I've seen one for sale is at a local gunshow. The dealer has one with bone scales and won't budge on his $275.00 price.
It's a lockback arrangement that secures the blade tang in both the open and closed positions. As 2Dead's photo shows, the lever pivots forward around thirty degrees, which give your thumb the leverage needed to push it back toward the handle spine, which releases the lockbar, allowing the blade to snap out. The lock is released the same way when closing the blade.
