    So for the September TOTM, it has been decided that we'll take a break from choosing patterns, and will instead be helping celebrate Oktoberfest (Sept. 22-Oct. 7), bring on your German knives, knives with caplifters and enjoy the good times.

    Now that sounds good to me! Especially with all the Boker's I've picked up over the summer :D Plus Hen and Rooster, Fight'n Rooster, Eye Brand, Henckels, Weidmannsheil...should be a fun month :thumbup:

    Just to be clear, is it 1. German knives with cap lifters or 2. German knives or other knives with cap lifters (like a SAK, 2011 Forum Knife, etc)?

    cool. i was thinking about suggesting a European rotation. But not sure I can play. The only German knives I have are Puma and Schmidt & Ziegler fixed blades from the 50s-60s.

    Now Schrade sounds a little german to me :)

    If we go along with the wording of your instructions, any knife with a caplifter qualifies - Victorinox and Wenger from Switzerland, utility knives from Scheffield (sp?), Scout knives from the USA, etc., etc., etc..

    In other words, what Trand said:

    A thought for the future: once the ship date for the Forum knife becomes known, what about saving that month (or the one immediately following) for Trapper Month?

    That's a good idea ~ P but looking at the start of this particular thread on "German Knives" and the questions it has brought about so far, the way to do these things is with a poll - my .02¢ . That way you get a more comprehensive idea of what the TOT should be. Including my thread, we have 11 posts so far in this thread with one picture and several questions and it's 4-days early. Anyway, hope the OP gets this thread on track soon.

    Hey Gevonovich - how do ya think that German knife likes it in a cactus patch!!!!! Just funnin.

    That's a nice looking knife. Can't tell for sure but are those ebony covers? They look a little brown to me for ebony but ya never know.

    Jan 17, 2011
    I believe them to be ebony and they do look darker in person. Thanks for the compliment, ED.

    Chamaecereus sylvestri or Peanut Cactus is native to Argentina and has spines that won't stick you..kind of a cool type of cactus

    Yes, I agree. I'm just feeding ideas into whatever discussions lead to efficient polls.

    Or so I hope(d).

    I think "caplifter" is too broad for this one, or at least, don't like the idea of an SAK being a TotM, mostly out of preference but especially given that there's a whole forum for such.

    Where's the poll? ;)

    Assuming non caplifter German knives are ok, I'll be carrying this made by Boker Henkels Stockman.

    I have a couple or so Geman knives. Do Bulldogs and Fight'n Roosters made in Germany qualify? Anyway, I will need a bit of clarification to determine if I have a qualifying knife. I already know that I don't have a German knife with a caplifter, so if that's the deal, I can't play.

    To clarify what I meant to say is: any German knife counts; any knife with a caplifter counts; any mixture of the two is just a bonus, but if caplifters are too generic we can strike that one off. As long as I get my weekly brew in, I'm a happy camper :D

    This should be a good month, lots of options. And with this group, some great looking knives. We can't go without the weekly brew :D

    Thanks for the clarification. This knife should fit right in.
