Ebony #66 Calf Roper
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.
Black Jack Friday
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)!
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.
Never get tired of looking at that beauty.
Thanks! Me either. Carrying it today, again.
Strictly speaking, it's not Friday here anymore but the beat plays on,,,plus most of you reading this are on a different time frame anyway
Nice, simple French Jack, Will!!
@waynorth Thanks Charlie, it's a bit of a biter VERY strong spring and you need to watch yourself closing it A tough knife and it's nice that French knives still arrive stamped
Thanks, GT, knowing it's a big'un does make a difference. Plenty to hang onto, for sure.
