Because the forum rules have remained the same? So they technically haven’t.

And each new knife breaks those rules.

I'm liking these. I really like my Beer Scout, but I keep battling rust freckles if I use it like a bottle opener. A stainless steel just makes better since on this sort of pattern.

I carry my warhorse often and really like it, this looks like another nice slipjoint to me :thumbsup:

Well, I’m almost certainly in for one of these. I was on the fence about the lionsteel jack, but have no such qualms with this! Looking forward to learning what handles will be available.

These turned out fantastic Mike. A barlow, quality steel, and a caplifter, what’s not to like. Any idea what handle materials will be available?

Not trying to start anything just honestly curious of your opinion. What exactly about this knife breaks the rules?:)

The test they established for whether a knife was a traditional knife or not is if an average user in the 1960s would see anything out of the ordinary about it.

Pretty simple, uncontroversial test.

dealers rules - basically aren’t meant to discuss dealers either positively or negatively. Simple too.

So what exactly is different or extraordinary with these? Why are they any different than say a GEC Beer Scout? This pattern was made back in the day, what about it says its not traditional?

Camillus Camillus can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think it's the pattern he has an issue with but the methods of construction used.

Personally, I feel it's a topic that has been belabored considerably in many threads and the mods have chimed in multiple times - in my mind, the matter is settled until the powers that be say otherwise.
