I've got the Case Bose bug bad...
The stockman is my newest. I'm really loving this 81 pattern.
I've had my eye on this "strawberry bone" Rough Rider muskrat for months. The fit and finish is excellent, but I couldn't get past the color. The pile side was sort of OK but rather blotchy, and the mark side was a faded red, almost pink. Well, the last few days I've been experimenting with dying bone so yesterday I bought it and today I got some red RIT dye at the grocery store. Fifteen minutes in a hot dye bath improved the looks considerably. Two slim clip blades -- what's not to like?
Pulled a couple more from the ol’ mailbox today.
68’-71’ Schrade made ( second/last version)
74’-85’ Camillus made ( last version)
Both received yesterday.
Nice dye job. Looks like sweet, sweet licorice!
Is the coffin jack your choice of the three you were telling us about?
Yes, it is.
Ah yes I just saw the other thread, great choice.
My first Tuna Valley and it’s pretty nice over all pretty happy . All blades have a nice snap with about a 5 pull all centered .Main blade is a little gritty about 3/4 position when opening and closing so hoping it’ll break in and with some flushing . But with that Being said beautiful blade with nice details .
Nice score! I have one that is very similar that I'll never sell. Better than many customs.
Nice pick up, that's a very good stockman.
That's a fine looking knife! The stag looks great and the extra touches really bring it all together.
This Trapper, an Orange Peel Bone Case....a highly collected pattern but I feel a not oft carried one....
Thanks !! I’m really liking the stag to and detail all over
Thank you Sir !
Unfortunately after spending a few hours with it I decided to send it back to the dealer . It did have some beautiful stag and detail on this one . But even after flushing the gritty feeling on the pull of main blade did not improve actually started feeling worse and more like gravel lol. Had sharp transitions everywhere and a very very proud pin that was on a angle at least 1/16 of a inch proud . Very poor grind on the main blade also . Hard to believe this one made it out of the factory . Very disappointed with this one and TV .
New to me Northwoods stockman. Edges just need a minor touch up as they will just st about shave as is. I am assuming this is D2 steel? Not real familiar with these older Northwoods.
I just Love the color! And the curve of the spear. And Is it CV ?????
