    You're getting dangerously close to changing my mind with all that logic!

    I wish it had another blade instead of a punch, similar my Case Humpback whittler.

    This is a two spring knife that is on the heavy side but very “pocketable”.

    It's great that we all like different things. The punch really makes it for me.
    Clip/sheepfoot/punch is a candidate for one of those knives I tell myself, "I won't need to buy another. This will cover all my knife needs." :D
    We all know it won't stop my eye from wandering...

    If it is anything like these Winchesters. sign me up!
    This is going to be a Whittler....right?
    Logan, let me give ya a extra nudge. I thought that this Winchester was going to be a bit bulky but I don't notice t in my pocket any more than most other other knives. Plus, it is a great little work horse of a knife and the punch is going to make it even more useful, for me.

    Ya see that one shiny blade? Yeah, I could go for having a punch there..

    A punch is definitely more useful than a pen for me, most of the time.

    The punch is actually a really useful tool. Just not sure about having a Sheeps AND Rams foot with it.

    I don't know for sure, but I'm fairly certain the mention of ram's foot on the production schedule is an error (as happens from time to time). The schedule also says "through June", which I'm sure is also an unadjusted tidbit...unless of course they plan on blasting through these in 8 days.

    We’re all just making stuff up. When I read the list in post one, I see the Tidioute non SFOs with a Ramsfoot blade listed, looks to me like those will be ram/sheep/punch, hopefully the clip on the other offerings.

    Thank you, Ryan.
    I do hope it is just an error.

    Would ya stop it, y'all are getting me all flustered ! ;):D
    Maybe replace the punch with a Lambsfoot for the trifecta. ;)

    I assume it is an error as well. A sheepsfoot/ramsfoot combo knife doesn't make a lot of sense (or sound appealing to me). That clip and punch blade combo is what attracts me to this configuration.

    It has to be. A sheepsfoot and what they've been calling a "Ramsfoot" are more or less the same blade. Having them on the same knife makes zero sense.

    To be honest, I dont understand all the novelty of the "ramsfoot" anyway. We've had them for years. Y'all go look at the sheepsfoot in your #15s and see.

    To my eye the clip blade seems too short for the frame. If so, why not make it longer? Or why design it shorter?

    I guess you've never seen the 53s with four (4!) Sheepfoot blades. Haha

    I agree. I'm interested in the answers to these questions.

    Did someone say punch? Yes please! While we're at it, hopefully no half-stops either. ;):D

    I'd imagine that's as long as they could make it and still keep the tip from being proud. The kick is pretty much non-existent, so it cant sit any lower.
