    Well played, sir, and correctly stated. We are lucky to have the options that we have now.

    This Otter is turning into a favourite. Very usefull shape and size. I'm planning to make a sheath (one that hangs from belt tab inside the pocket) specially for this knife.

    That really is a stunner Greg :thumbsup:

    Beautifully put Stuart, and that is a wonderful Knife :) :thumbsup:

    Great colours Dylan! :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Ron, another smashing knife there my friend :) :thumbsup:

    I was also a 70's backpacker, and love the books from that period :) I also enjoyed Bernard S Mason, as well as the camping books of British author Jack Cox, which reflect a slightly earlier period. I was only a teenager, so carried what I had, mainly Richards knives, like these, and a re-purposed kitchen paring knife in a homemade leather sheath :)


    I can remember being very excited about getting hold of some Kendal Mint Cake, and somewhat disappointed shortly after! :D It has always been my main hiking 'emergency ration', since I'd have to be in dire straits to want to break into it! :D :thumbsup:

    Great pic of a couple of fine knives :thumbsup:

    Carrying my 2017 Guardians Lambsfoot today :) :thumbsup:

    He wouldn't have approved for a full kit backpacking trip, but for a walk with things merely stuffed into pockets, Fletcher surely would.

    - totin' these ones today........a most kind knife buddy sent me a selection of his own to have a fondle.

    As I don't have any recent models, this is a good way to have a gentle play and find out - thank you, James :thumbsup::thumbsup::)



    My immediate favourite is this Hawthorne, very easy pinch-open in particular...

    Atiger, I'm starting to believe that you have an infinite supply of these old beauties cached away. Both are stunning.
