    Nice Bulldog.
    I have a sowbelly stockman from '95, great quality.
    Im sure that whittler is better than a Case seahorse :thumbsup:

    Thanks. Really like the fact that this one has carbon steel blades rather than Case's stainless!

    So today I stopped at a pawn shop thats also a Case dealer. When I seen this in the countertop display I assumed it was from the recent release. The guy couldn't find any in stock, and said he'd sell me the display. Price in the display was a very faded $74.98. A little on the high side,but I thought at least I wouldn't have to wait for it lol. But the guy says, Its the display, I dont have a box and its scuffed(tiny bit on the pile side bolster) you can have it for 30 bucks. :eek: I just about ripped the pocket off my jeans I grabbed my wallet so fast:D. But I got to thinking I couldn't remember anyone posting a pocket worn redbone from the new batch with this bolster stamp. Well its not from the newest batch,its a 2008! The fit'n'finish is about as perfect as it can get.

    That is a relatively new Buck (the 212 Fixed Ranger). Available at a few Blade Forums dealers (SK Blades - who brought us the 2018 BF Pocketknife, and C&C - another dealer in limited Buck SFO's). Has a handle the same size of the Buck 105, 118, 121 fixed blades coupled with a short broad blade. I like the combination. OH

    Thanks for that info. SK Blades D2/Micarta version is mighty tempting.

    Yeah, that is a nice version - it just hit the USPS in the last week or two. You should check them out in the Buck Knives sub-forum here on Blade Forums. There are several threads running and there are a lot of small run variations of this knife and at least three steels so far (that I remember) D-2, 420HC, and W-2. Happy Hunting! OH

    Just got this today, fit and finish are typical from these guys but the heat treat seems good and it's a nice size for whittling ;)

    I think that looks better than any of the 2019 Case Barlows I've seen. Great find! :thumbsup:

    Nice! I have one that is in good shape, but not as bright as yours. These seem fairly rare nowadays as I cant find many pics or much info online. These were known then as the "post exchange knife" Fantastic score!

    I had decided to pass on the Appaloosa Bone variant of last year’s GEC 14, as none of the examples I saw “spoke” to me.

    But this particular one did. In fact, it might be my favorite...for today at least. ;)
