    How do you like the AG Russell stockman?

    I like it a lot. Generally speaking i’ Impressed with AGR Knives considering the price point. The stockman has a nice ergonomic sway. It has its unique flair with the funky spey blade. Nice useful knife.

    Thanks. That's been a model I've been thinking about for a while. The spey is unique.

    Don't really need it,but had to have one. Does that make sense? Sensible or not it made me happy to buy it. CV Soddie Jr.

    This is the third thread in which I've posted pics of my new Rough Rider cotton samplers that arrived over a week ago. :rolleyes:

    Thanks! I'm sure I will like it. Others must like it around here too, as I had to buy the display without the box. I have a few sodbuster types including a GEC Bullnose, just had to get me a SBJr though.

    Did a little more digging around at the feed store this weekend. This is technically Kim's acquisition since she spied it and is going to carry it. But, she asked me to post it. 2013 Moore Maker Coffin Jack in white bone. Quirky little knife, the bone doesn't match at all, which we think adds to its character. Model is 5201UC, so I think this is a Utica.

    This is a Case lockback 3 dot from 1977 in black composite 20190130_022920-902x1079.jpg and this is what it looks like after the master @glennbad does his magic. I have a magnificent stag lockback without the lanyard hole and a slightly rounded profile. WOW! IMG_0184-1024x705.JPG

    I recently found this Fight'n Rooster lockback. It's 4 3/8" closed. I'm not sure of the covers. It's a little unusual but in a good way. IMG_0203-960x960.JPG

    My package from "across the pond" finally arrived today... A.Wright sheepfoot in ebony... it's a very nicely made knife. Especially at that price point. I might have to do it again... carbon steel and ebony goodness... with a British accent!

    Victorinox makes over 30,000 knives per *day*, so one would might think collecting Swiss Army knives would be easy. But some models can be surprisingly elusive.

    After several years of searching, this tiny 75mm Beginner fills a very large hole in my little collection.

    Just picked up my first Case 1970 10 dot. Super impressive. Everything is tight. Great jigging. Smooth and snappy.

    I agree Alan - that's a tremendously cool and successful transformation of a 40+ year old knife. :thumbsup:
    Would have been great even for a 2017 version ;) Nicely done @glennbad

    After a little research I believe they are bone.

    Do you know what they call the color? On first look i thought they were some sort of wood.

    They do look like snakewood but so far the only description I can find is smooth bone.
