I have the 72 lockback in red bone. It weighs 2 3/4 oz.
handles l to r. orange bone--tractor green--smooth bone--tobacco bone--frontier bone--smooth bocote--& jigged bocote.weights range from 2.5 oz. to 4.0 oz.if one notices the bolsters on the lockbacks are slightly longer.the tobacco is a 2 blade [both large blades] which makes it the heavier of the bunch.in general the liner locks in similar bone tend to be heavier than the lockbacks due to the x-tra slip of back metal to make the linerlock. i hope this comparison helps formites to understand the slight differances between these knives. i find the single blades in both models to be better for edc. the blade on the lockback opens much easier than the 73 in linerlock or w/o lock dennis
That No.23 is too big for my hands, but a damn fine knife! Nice chunk of antler on that too,good grip assured.
