Been in the pocket about a week and a half, still love using it and its aging well.
I’m going to leave this here, I think it pertains, maybe I’m wrong.Here's an example of an old Premium stock knife with a whittler construction. The term whittler is modern and wasn't used back then. It was just called a premium stock knife. The smaller versions were sometimes called junior premium stock knives.
The word "whittler" is now used to describe a wide range of patterns that have a main blade riding on both springs and secondaries on separate springs. Some pen knives. Some stock knives. Etc.
The equal end Tuna Valley knife is a cattle knife. A stock knife is always serpentine.
