    Every time I see you post a picture of this knife I think, "Man, that's one fine looking knife!" The finish is so clean and that ebony(?) is so dark and smooth.

    I like Sabres and own a few that I use regularly. They are not as handsome as the one that you show.

    These three today: a small bird & trout knife by the late Daniel Cannady, a recent Case sway back gent, and a Robeson barehead jack in strawberry bone from 1940-1964. I think that a prior owner tried to modify it into a whittler by filing the broken/worn pen into a coping blade. They did a fair job, as the tip is smooth and polished. Don't ask how I know that it is wicked sharp.

    Thank you! It has honestly surprised me how much I like it. Not.only the aesthetics but as a user too. It's a hell of a knife for sure. :)

    "Come on back, Jesus, and pick up John Wayne on the way." - Willie Nelson

    OK, knives - This Robeson barehead jack is an odd duck to me. It is stamped ROBESON over SHUREDGE over U.S.A., but I couldn't find that stamp in Goins. I've seen it on sale sites referenced as 1940-1964. The other stamp is a pattern number: 222026. All the Robeson's I've seen with that pattern number have a clip and a pen. It appears that the pen on this one was broken/worn and has been modified to a coping blade (the tip is smooth and polished). The bone is strawberry (and I've seen that reference before), though many of the old Robeson reds I have seen look like Case's old redbone. Anyway, I like this old cuss. The coping blade is wicked sharp (don't ask how I know, I'm still trying to cope).

    To honor the Queen Cutlery I took my Northwoods out of my pocket and slipped this on in the pocket for the rest of the day.
    Sad news.

    Thanks, Paul. It's 4" with a 3" CPM-154 blade. I honestly don't own a knife I like better.

    I usually don't think of the Leatherman as a knife, but if I have a belt on it is there.
