    First day carrying the 71 Bull Nose. Abit chunkier in the pocket than I expected.

    The #71 is a solid work knife and a real value in the traditional knife world. :cool::thumbsup:

    I can see why. A quality work knife no doubt.

    Stout workers for sure. If I had the skills and tooling I have now back when I owned one I would have shaped and thinned mine out to be more pocket friendly.

    If you ever get the chance to do it, I would love to see the results.

    Yes Sir and what a great knife! One of the sharpest out of the box I’ve ever received and the straight back on the stretch is so dang sexy :D

    @JohnDF here is a better shot I just took for you. BTW it’s a limited Sprint run so once there gone that’s it unlike dealer exclusives that’ll keep popping up periodically. I love the Ivory FRN to its so different from any other Spydie I’ve owned and this Stretch 2 has to be one of the most comfortable knives in hand I’ve ever owned.

    It’s rare for me to have a modern folder in my pocket, but a Boker Urban Trapper is accompanying my Pioneer today.
