    334 Large Trapper vs 317

    the Buck 317 made by camillus has a carbon back spring. reason I know for sure is I bought a rusted up badly one. not the blades so much. was able to clean up the blades, but backspring not really.

    Ontario SP10 steel

    I prefer the 1075. its not a bad steel by any means and is tougher. which I prefer on a bigger chopper knife, like this.

    modern case folders marilla & kinzua

    not too bad, but not great if using to slice. thick stock, but thins down nicely on the marilla. the kinzua its a short width blade so it tapers fast but as a slicer won't help much to avoid the thickness. no idear. marilla looks maybe a name from Spanish. kinzua only thing i saw was in...

    modern case folders marilla & kinzua

    oh yeah.....forgot about those...these newer ones are heavily copied from those....guess they slightly changed design a tad and cut out southern grinds commission and lowered the price point a bit....😁

    What did we use before the “age of supersteels?”

    Hoyt Buck started out using old worn out files to make knives. so those were likely w1 or w2 steels or something similar.

    modern case folders marilla & kinzua

    gotcha. didnt know that. yeah thats even crazier at those prices. wouldn't even have touched them for that range. still think they are overpriced at the levels they are now.

    modern case folders marilla & kinzua

    are ya saying 200 each? or ya mean together in the 200 plus range? think I paid 115 for the tanto and 135 for the other one. agree though, both are pricey for what ya get and compared to the wide range of competition in the same or similar price ranges.

    Garage sale find.

    if ya shape it to a point again. work from the clip top side down to the brokenedge, not the other way around. ya won't lose anymore length that way and the point won't stick up when closed.

    Buck 891GCK - anyone have one?

    of the newer Bucks......these are my favorites. very smart thick stock designs but still can cut well and easy to keep sharp. not a huge fan of the sheath, but works okay. rather have a leather sheath, but is what it is. i had Mike make me a leather sheath. very tough. 5160. thick stock...
