    Thanks you veitsi polka, I actually did use a harness jack punch on some leather today.

    Thanks campbeliclanman. I worked at my scout camp one summer as a teen, would kinda like to go back and visit the grounds again someday.
    It's still in operation 45 years later and going strong from what I gather.

    Picked this one up on the Exchange for the stag. I'm extremely happy with the knife too! Everything is just right with this one. It's a quarter pounder (4.18 oz), a bit too heavy for my pocket. I did find that I have a belt pouch that is just about perfect for it.
    A little clean up and some oil and it's good to go.

    I am a jealous man. I've been pining for a stag Boker camp knife for quite some time. How fat is the stag?

    I'm really pleased with the stag on this one, Buzz. It's just about perfect.

    This is indeed excellent. Fat enough to give a good grip, but not so fat that you can't find a pouch thick enough for it. Well done.

    Picked up this minty Camillus Saturday, unused, packed in grease, has a no line tang stamp which is pretty hard to find, late 1940's.

    That Camillus is super-sweet. So fresh looking and nice dark bone with deep jigging. The engineer knives are pretty easy to find. But finding them in that kind of condition is another matter entirely.

    Brass liners?

    Here ya go @Buzzbait - The Boker 150 year anniversary camp knife in dyed curly birch. I can't wax eloquent over the specifications and various other minutia like you do so well but I can supply pics. I will say fit and finish is very nice, zero play on all tools and the curly birch is gorgeous. Fairly light pulls as most camp knives. Oh... and the bottle opener works perfectly. :D fullsizeoutput_180e.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1801.jpeg fullsizeoutput_180a.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1805.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1809.jpeg fullsizeoutput_180d.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1806.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1807.jpeg fullsizeoutput_180b.jpeg fullsizeoutput_1803.jpeg

    Wow. That is absolutely gorgeous. The covers are amazing. Lots of character and the green color is so vibrant. I normally despise blade etches, but I love how the etch looks in this knife. It’s compliments the knife so well.

    This has gone straight to my short list.

    Some wonderful campers shown in the last few pages. I have a real soft spot for 6 blade humpback camper models and enjoyed seeing the two recent Boker models from Peregrin and Fodderwing.
    Here is an old example from the German firm of "Friedrich Olbertz". I like the "Winged Crown" logo on the blade and handle shield.
