    Thanks, Clay. :) I'm quite fascinated by the inexpensive, international "work knives".

    Thank you my friend. It’s fun rebuilding. I let 3/4 of my collection go and now I’m just focusing on the Schrade and Camillus versions. They are the Buck knives of my youth so they bring me lots of joy and memories.

    I'm a 300 series fan just cuz I like excellent designs well made. With your previous experience you're sure to get some good ones. Best of luck & enjoy the hunt. -James

    Here’s a notable pair, well at least it’s notable if you like 303 history.

    The knife on top is the last version Schrade made for Buck before losing the contract to Camillus and the bottom knife is the first version Camillus made under that new contract. Interesting yet subtle design changes.

    Interesting. I have several 303s and I have no idea if they are Camillus or Schrade or other. I will have to take a closer look at them.

    Here are a pair of Northwoods Slim Jacks, Buffalo Horn and Stag:

    My ancient and newer Case Slimline. Notice: The cracks in the scales at the spring pins. Over the years there are subtle changes but some things never change. "Case" in point! LOL

    Two very different, but very notable, pairs, Vaporstang!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Pretty cool, Clay; must be nice to be an expert on a pattern! :cool::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Does the top one have a higher riding sheepsfoot, or does the bottom one have a little broader clip blade (or some combination of the two)??

    Notable Queen teardrops, Mark, each with handsome covers!! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Here's another of my "series" of pairs from my Case CV chestnut jigged bone family. Peanut and Mini Trapper this time:

    That’s my Son’s patina from making guacamole his first weekend with me home from college. I had to have something special for the Holidays and New Year. I won’t rotate more knives, until the next year.
