    This is my opinion of it as well. I love the Shuffler, everything about it is so well executed, and the design is highly practical.
    Still, I find myself not carrying mine because of those great features.
    The M390 steel is mostly why mine stays in the drawer. As good as it is I like knowing that if I'm out and about I can touch up my blades with whatever abrasives are around; car windows, coffee mugs or even the right rock. This isn't really a rational decision, but
    I simply prefer more traditional materials.

    Thanks @Bloefield :thumbsup:
    Much appreciated, nice to see newer and older versions of those two models.
    Mine is like the #18 top right in the upper photo, except for the thumb access relief on the scale/liner.

    I gotta come play catch up later. Kim and I went to a couple other flea markets yesterday, and now I have to move furniture! In addition, we found a few more worthwhile knives. This one in my pocket today. 1965-1969 Case 087 Stockman. In great shape, haven't done a thing to it. I think I can get some of the staining off it, we'll see.

    I have heard complaints about these being ground too thick behibd the edge. I that something that has been fixed on later production? Looking to buy one with blue titan and natural micarta, but reports of thick gring hold me back.

    The beauty is that, barring abuse or bouncing it off cement, you won't need to touch it up as often.

    I have a dom, a shuffler and a warhorse. And while not super thin, they aren't too bad behind the edge. Better than many but not as thin as some. If you like them laser thin behind the edge, it may not be for you. But mine are all thin enough, profiled to 20*, that they slice through cardboard mighty easily.

    Bought this one this morning on the way to do a last minute job. Went into the pocket before I was 10 feet from the counter.

    @SVTFreak Very true. With the light use my knives see this would probably be a once a month touch-up. I should probably put mine to use to get a feel for this steel.

    As nice as the original 110 is the light one is so much more practical. I almost got the red 112, but they all had the thumbsuds and pocket clips.

    Lucky for me, the one I carried today was the one I needed and the spay blade on the large Case Trapper was just the ticket for the skinning job. I knew it would be though,that's why I bought it.After the farm chores were done I decided to wet a line in our pond and try a new lure out. Caught this big guy on the first cast.To bad you guys couldn't have seen the best part when my sheep walked over to see what I was doing and pushed on the stool that I was cleaning the Bass on and knocked the spay blade into my finger and taking a slice off my knuckle.
