Yes the older clip one was an all steel version and the pins are nickel silver. This version and I think the American whittler one are all steel all the others from that year have the brass liners I think.Great-looking knives! Does the older clip blade version have Nickel-silver cover pins instead of brass?
I'm not sure I follow you here. Would you mind explaining what you mean in terms of the mechanical advantage? To me, it looks like the nail nicks are located in the same place on each of the knives, with the beaver being one where the nick is slightly off center. Seems to me like that may have been a user error whoever was doing the nick though.Nice group from that image you can see where the nail nicks are in relationship to the center pin, and the Bloodwood shows that it would have a better mechanical advantage when pulling the blade out
