Like Jack I was unaware of what a 34OT is until now. But I surely would not let one like this go!
I don't like the Swinden key so no longer own any knives using that construction. That will be the reason I never own a 34OT.
Hey thank you! I didn’t know the final product would turn out to look like this so I never even took a “before” picture. The scales were pure brown, almost black but a good cleaning and some oil brought them back to new. I was shocked they looked this well under all of the grime.
So... you mean that lol does NOT mean one hundred and one? LOL.
It is a Solid med Stockman!
Here she is! Lot of blade in a little package, very nice size to the sheepsfoot. Many thanks Jim(@315 ), this is certainly a fine example. A bit smaller than I have been carrying lately but a more than capable working knife. I’ll definitely carry thissun around a bit and try it out!
Never had one.
Might look out for a 33OT since i'm not a Stockman fan and it looks like an oversized peanut
Own one? I've never even heard of them.
Still likin'mine for smaller gentleman-like tasks, good quality, even for China.
Wow, memory lane. I don't think I've had a Schrade like that for decades. Reminds me of learning how to whittle as a kid.
Just the other day I got my first 34OT. I had a 108OT but it was too tiny, so I got rid of it. I like the 34 OT so far, seems like a good knife.
got one today at gun show,,,along with a minty 858,,,,both USA knives.
I have recently received one from @mitch4ging . A nice middle sized stockman, will be useful in the garden.
I had several. I still have an old timer trapper that is worn out,also have a jack that was a gift from a dear friemd i worked with. I still have my 885uh uncle henry,which was the first knife i ever bought myself. I gave many oldtimers away over the years,havent had any of the chinese produced ones.
I think you’ll find the 34OT to be about the perfect size to always have a knife with you. Not too big to be cumbersome and capable enough for almost any task
I havent owned one yet but it looks like it will be on the list. You see im a fan of the slicey stockman pattern, and only currently owning one GEC 82 stockman, I will need to back this up with a similar knife. A 34ot in carbon will do that just nicely.
Have had one or two to trade on over the years but never kept one to carry.
They seem to have decent metal for the price range ( talking about the older US made ones ).
One thing I didn't like and I'm surprised no one ever mentions it, is that the rivets in the old timers and uncle henrys did not go all the way through the bolsters, just through the liners, which makes for a weaker knife.
I've seen several with loose blades.
My grandfather brought this to my attention years ago. He was a serious knife trader and collector. I surely miss that man.
