    A 1992 Buck 303 stockman. Notice the full flat grind blades vs. the now common sabre grind blades. I guess that is how Buck used to make them. This one belongs to a 10 year old boy.

    Here’s the twin brother to that 303 made in 1993. Today’s carry for my eight-year-old.

    No black knives among my carries this week, unless you count black lip pearl:

    GT, that is one very high-prowed canoe, how is the grip?

    I'm going with RALF this morning, as in most mornings.

    RALF is looking good, Jeff @black mamba (as are you and your Hawaiian angel)! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    If you're worried about the "points" of my canoe's bolsters causing an awkward or uncomfortable grip, I haven't found that to be the case. It's a big gunboat canoe, 4 5/8" closed, with a stockman-style blade set-up, except spear main instead of clip. So the handle is long enough that I can get a 4-finger grip if I want between the bolsters.
    I've never done any hard, prolonged cutting with it, but if I did, I'd be concerned that the file work on the spines of the blades might eventually cause some discomfort in fingers on the closed blades.

    Thanks, GT, knowing it's a big'un does make a difference. Plenty to hang onto, for sure.
