The knives pictured in the link look much better than the ones in the first photos released. I'll definitely be watching and hopefully they'll have a stockman pattern soon. But I have to say, I hate the match strike pulls.
A Cobra has been my dream car since the first time I saw one. Had a 65 fastback back in high school until it was totaled by a lady trying to pay her water bill before the office closed. I have a 66 coupe that I bought for my father and I were going to make a project but he died before we could...
Case - Case trumps GEC for price, availability and variety.
GEC - The standard to which others are compared.
Queen/Schatt & Morgan - Everything from everyday work knives to heirloom pieces.
Camillus - Great values with some hidden gems.
Schrade - Schrade Walden era is a personal favorite...
Because of the loose pin on this old short line Camillus 69 I consider this one worn out. The pin is a little to short to re-peen so it is retired to display only. Any torsion on the blade nearly pulls the knife apart. The pocket worn bone tells me it was someones edc for a long time.
Although not exactly 'worn out' this old Camco is well worn. I found this among my dads things after he passed and it was the knife that ignited my love of stockman's. I don't believe it was one dad carried but probably one he found as he was a swapper and seller of anything he could lay hands...
Don't carry it often but it is a surprisingly comfortable knife for me to use but I wear xxl gloves. From what I've read here on BF I doubt we'll be seeing more anytime soon, seems it was a difficult pattern.
