    Your newest addition:traditionals of course!

    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    Yep.... Easy way to avoid accidental flipping.... post it for sale at the original price, or thereabouts. Or, on the 'bay, post it at a "Buy it now" price at or about the original price. See how easy that is?

    When did regular old pocket knives become “traditional”?

    Retired guys? I'm not retired, and I've gravitated BACK to traditionals. I carried a Case sodbuster for several years, from my late teens to mid 20's.... I always had some kind of traditional folder in my pocket. It wasn't until I was in my 40's that I started using the moderns. Some of...

    One solution would be to prepay...nobody backs out that way, and you have a very accurate number of knives to make.

    A quest for my ideal Stockman

    I have three of these, one of them being a "Case Select". All three are just wonderful knives, great walk/talk, no grittiness at all. No noticeable gaps, everything smooth and sleek. The three springs and thinner blades make them better slicers, IMO. I compared them to an Old Timer 8OT...
