    Case Bose 2017 knife

    That LBW is a complicated knife. It has to have a cut liner between those two back blades with enough bearing surface to support the blades. That along with the cut swedges on the insides of the two small blades creates a pocket for the master blade to set in when closed. It can't be any...

    Case Bose 2017 knife

    When those knives are closed the blade goes from one end to the other. How can it be any longer without rapping or sticking out the end of the knife. I guess you could stick a cork on it so it wouldn't cut you.

    These people were real pros. Hope everyone enjoys it. It was fun for me. It was the first time I was ever set in a make up chair. I told that lady if she tried to put lipstick on me somebody was getting their ass whipped. Might be me, but somebody!

    Saddlehorn vs Lanny's Clip

    Both those knives have a curved jack handle, its a very old handle die. I have an early Keen Kutter curved jack with the same handle. I like it, feels good in the hand. The LC is wider of course cause the blade is wider. The cotton sampler Case done is a curved jack handle. So is the Zulu...

    I think that knife was 62.5. That's right where I like them. Ill be interested to see how you like that after using it. I have many of those in service from the past. Haven't heard any complaints yet. With reasonable care you wont have any rust problems at that Rockwell.

    The fellow I made that for had it made to use. He has about a dozen of my knives and uses them all. Lost it once and went back the next day and found it in some leaves. Had his butt puckered pretty tight, panic I think is the word. Haaa. D2 is one of the best using steels out there if...

    I don't know. But I've seen Bowie knives from the 1800s that had cast handles with inlays in them. The idea was there long ago . Like I said its hard to do something in this business that hasn't been done. That's why I tell people I don't design knives, I bring them back from the grave. If I...

    Original R 1306s had this type of split spring long before Ron ever made a knife. Remington also made interframes in the 1920s. Rarely is anything new, sometimes they are improved. There was a patent on liner locks in 1906, that was improved by Mr Walker. Tangs were tapered in the 1800s , on...

    John the Napanoch bone has nothing to do with Remington. It is from the Napanoch Knife Co in Napanoch ,NY. They were bought out by Winchester in 1919. A couple years later some former employees bought the plant and started the Honk Falls Cutlery Co which made knives there till it burned down...

    The regular production knives like the trapper and BackPocket they are doing now only the blade is EDM wire cut. On the yearly collab I do with them all the parts are wire cut including the shield and bolsters, liners, blades and springs. I take no offence to this. I know that most people...

    It's not me that runs the cost up on these. It's the edm wire cut and choice of materials that does it. A lesser known maker design would likely cost the same.

    Some of them were made with a mid lock, Winchesters was. I like them better cause you can close it with one hand, the rear lock you have to hold with the other hand to release the lock.
