Beautiful knife. And nice use of catch lights
That’s camoflage. Don’t drop it in the brush.
Besides my own from the sixties, I have Dad’s from the late thirties/early forties.
Lots of cool stuff in the old one - shooting, bow making...
I’d like to see your Champ fully opened. I’m going to compare it with mine that my girlfriend, now my wife, found on a UI sidewalk and gave me around ‘76. I’m curious about what they deleted to make room for the pliers.
Do you find the pliers useful?

Thank you kindly. As most of my images, it was taken outdoors. This one as the Sun was setting, catching the glint on the swedge. A lucky moment.
Super-duper duo, Stuart; I especially like that Queen barlow!
Superb find, Dwight! Thanks for the info.
Maybe you need to name one of your knives, Alan! (My first car (bought it in 1969) was a '64 Barracuda with an AM radio. )
Thanks for the mini copper lock info, Ron & Dean.
Thanks for more info about the Texas chili culture.
Superior "something old/ something new" pairing you've put together!
Superlative couple of selections, Jack!
Thanks for the positive comments about the green scout knife, folks; it was pretty easy to clean, even while away from home on vacation a few years ago. According to this website http://www.vintagegirlscout.com/campeqknife1.html the smooth clear cel light green covers were made by Kutmaster/Utica from 1948-1972. Kutmaster then switched to the jigged green plastic for 1973-1979.
Summit-topping Case, @Travman!
That's a sublime transformation, Alan! What's the closed length of that lockback?
Oh-oh! Looks like a couple of your knives have committed hanging offenses, Jeff!
Lot of back arch on that one, Dwight!
Much more than suitable suite of knives, Ron!
My favorite Dirty Harry quote; words to live by!
Love the scarlet SBJ, Dean!
Two satisfying knives, José!
Welcome back, Ken!! We've missed you and your "theme photos".
Good wood for Wednesday, Jeff!
Still workin' the S&M.
Thank you, Jack!
So true, Jeff.
Thank you, Gary!
Wow. I'd love to see a pic of your Dad's old knife.
My SwissChamp isn't that much different from your old Champion. It's just one layer larger, due to the pliers. The pliers are definitely limited by their size, but they're great for pulling staples out of cardboard boxes and working on electronics and other hobby stuff. There have been a few tool changes over the years, but not as many as you might think think.
Of all your wonderful knives, this one’s my favorite.
Thank you. Are you referring to the stockman or congress?
Sorry about that. Every time I see the bottom one, my heart skips a beat. First, the double fluted bolsters, and then the jigging, then the color, and finally, the nicely aged blades. The pen’s Swedge and the shape of the main blade are sweet.
Thanks. Glad you like it.
Beautiful work, r8shell. I don't think I'd get tired of seeing those, very much a pleasure.
For Wooden Wednesday, I am continuing my self imposed trend; Lamb and Barlow in Ebony and Dyed Curly Maple. It was difficult to capture the figuring in the Curly Maple but I think I got a good shot of the pile side, such wonderful chatoyence.
@Prester John, @5K Qs, & @Travman - Thanks guys. It’s good to be back on the porch!
Thanks Tim! I do like the Osage Orange #47. It has a certain beauty all it's own!
Beautiful grain Harvey!
Thank you Jack!
Great pairing Dylan!
I always love to see that #79 Ken! Great to see you back posting. Hey, it won't be long until the Rendezvous!
Thanks Ron! Counting down the days!
My first Winchester - 1988 #3904 Whittler. Nice jigging.
