    I keep a Buck 301 in my pocket ... swap it out for a 371 with G10 covers once in a while. What can I say? I like them both.

    If you want a LARGE stockman, forget about the 8OT and hunt down an original USA-made 858OT.

    Enjoying this stockman quite a bit, especially the sheepsfoot blade, here's a comparison shot showing the SAK Pioneer and Case Purple Haze large Stockman

    and here you can see how thinly ground down this blade is, cuts remarkably well !

    Tom,

    Here are some other options that can still be found New and at decent prices... I paid less than $45 for each one of these... I've seen 'em go higher, but usually not more than $65-$70.


    These Winchester stockmans are great knives. Excellent quality. Made by Queen for Bluegrass Cutlery in the 1980s/1990s.

    Sowbelly Stockman 3949. 3 3/4 inches. Jigged Bone handles.

    Stockman Whittler 3907. 3 7/8 inches. Jigged Bone handles.
    [​IMG]

    Stockman Whittler 380119. 4 1/2 inches. Jigged Bone handles.
    [​IMG]

    Stockman Whittlers 390119. 4 1/2 inches. Jigged Bone handles.

    And this one by Buck can also still be found New for around $45-60.

    Buck 307. 4 1/4 inches. Delrin handles.

    Ok, what is the one between the 8 and the 858. Whatever it is, I need one.:)

    I believe that is the 61OT.

    Correct, the 61-OT, You must know your Old Timers. :) It's a great knife in-hand, super comfortable. It's longer than even a large stockman, but it's really slender and curved just right. And of course made with Schrade's 1095 carbon steel blades.

    The OT stockman frame that's missing from that scan is the Ulster 58-OT. It's about the same size as a medium stockman, but with a slender serpentine shape like the 61OT.

    Ron Thanks for your appreciation.:cool: For a big knife it's sleek, the backspring and tang-stamps are really Masterclass.

    I would like to get a Queen Stockman in Zebra, or BEM like Jeff's. Find the right one and you get a remarkable bargain.

    Regards, Will

    And one of my favorites, made by Camillus for Sears in the 30's or 40's:

    Point taken tongueriver, but for enthusiasts like me in Europe it's really hard to access decent used American knives. So, I have to buy new and age them up myself.:D

    That Schliepper is MASSIVE, behemoth of a knife:eek::thumbup:

    Thanks, Will
