    I have never seen that pattern anywhere. Thanks for posting the pic! I have a couple of Klaas knives and they are top notch. Both well made and easy punch out of their weight class.

    I had to have one of those when I saw it was not a tiny knife, but a very pocketable 3 3/4". Perfect! Finally found one in amber picked bone, no more "yellow boys" (except one for $35 plus shipping) available in my searches. It is on the way, and I am really looking forward to getting it.

    Will try to post up some pics when it gets here.

    Cool! I'm glad you found one, they are getting to be a bit sparse. I'm sure you will like it, I really love the pattern.

    That smooth tobacco bone is probably the triumph of the RR line (though I really do love the smooth green bone of a few years back, too). With the cute little acorn shields, they're a no-brainer. :thumbup:

    I'm not at home right now so I can't get the RR # off the knife, but it's a small fixed-blade in the smooth tobacco bone. Super thin and super light, plus a very useful blade profile.

    Google indicates it is an RR1278. Comes with a nice black nylon sheath that covers the whole knife, too.

    The tobacco bone/acorn shield is beautiful. I've been trying to find a barlow in that handle for over a year. Guess I've just missed out on this one (have most all the RR barlows, except the Masonic one which I don't see the point of buying an organizational knife that I'm not a member of.

    I'd love a box of the old blue-tip Ohio Kitchen matches- you could strike those on damn near anything, and they'd light every single one in the box. Went through em like candy in my Scout days- never seen any that even come close.

    The Marble's Workman is another really nice scout/camp type knife. A bit larger (thicker) than the RR but has a couple more tools.
    I really like mine. Linen micarta scales and decent steel. I don't know if it will replace my SAK Tinker, but it's coming close the more I use it.

    Josh, I know there are pics on this thread of the RR campers. But if you need a look right away, try this:

    Google Images is great. Click on the pics and in many cases there will be more information and more pics.

    Ah thanks. I was referring to the marbles though. Still a good read though!

    Josh -

    Sorry, no digicam. I'm sure you could google "Marble's Workman" for pics.
