    That's a nice looking knife. What's the blade steel?

    Tractor Green is always a very decent scale, good find!:thumbup:

    This arrived yesterday. Winchester Black Box Swell Centre Penknife. NOS from 1990 but it isn't going to look this pristine for much longer:cool: The Rogers Bone on this series is entrancing, really beautiful.

    Thanks Alan and Will. I guess the size lends itself to a great variation in covers.

    A couple of auction finds.

    This Kabar scout is almost cherry. Just a light scratch on the main blade from the awl. Perfect snap on every tool, and not a sign of wobble.

    And a beautiful soft Arkansas stone. Gorgeous coloring. Looks like it was never used. The leather slip is no slouch either.

    Jeff I don't blame you,:D these are very decent knives and well worth the hunt. Just looking for 2 others in the series now

    The Mini Gunstock I just got is a very credible small knife, not toy-like or annoying. It even came with an original ad from 1988 which was interesting. RRP then was 45 USD don't know about price inflation in the US but that's got to be double now I would think?

    Thanks, Will

    Nothing special, but I remember having one just like it when I was a kid.

    The handles feel a bit gummy, so I want to clean them some how, but I don't want to risk disturbing the patina on the brass bolsters. Suggestions welcome.

    A couple great finds, Buzz! It's hard to tell for sure from the angle in the photo, but does the slip for that Arkansas stone have the state outline of Arkansas on it? I'm a sucker for my home state. :D

    Just received, this beauty immediately assumed the mantle of the finest factory slipjoint in my accumulation. Eat your heart out GEC.

    That scout is a cool find! I'm a sucker for most anything Ka-Bar though.

    Christian, I too have a couple of Queen built Winchesters that rival or exceed the quality of GECs.
    This Cartridge Series stockman from 1995 is as good as any build I have from any manufacturer.

    I'd sure love to see them come back to the quality of yesteryear.

    Jeff,

    My whittler is the same vintage as your stockman.

    Buzzbait. You probably know this, but that Kabar was certainly made before 1996. Probably between 1966 and 96 as it is marked Cole Consumer Products. Cole bought Kabar in 66 and sold it to Cutco in 96.

    I have 4 in that serie, including the gunstock, all are very useable and excellent finish. Just the stockman has a slight mark on a slab, quite unnoticeable. And all at very decent prices for such a quality.
    My grail would be a congress or half congress.
    Hmmm gorgeous.

    You're right these knives have outstanding quality! And this one is splendid.
