    At work (building woodstoves) a carbon steel large Schrade trapper (14OT I think). At home, a tiny Browning stainless trapper with stag scales.

    Well, today it will be my trusty Old Timer 34OT, a Vic Farmer SAK and my newly-acquired Benchmade 527 (not traditional, but little, light and handy!).

    Its supposed to be around 55°F, so I'm planning on doing some work outside.
    I didn't decide what pocketknife to carry yet, so there's none on the photo.

    Response sent. No problem - it seems the "folksy" thing to do. ;)

    Here is another vintage large Stockman I just got in a trade with a very fine member here that is dressed in nice tightly grained hardwood scales that is stained in a cherry color. Brass bolsters, liners and pins and what appears to be stainless steel blades and backsprings. She even has a match striker pull on her main clip blade with a front side swedge or false edge as well. Its an Imperial USA brand that has the tang stamp FRONTIER in a semi -circle and a powder-horn design below it. I polished her up and started edc'n as of late. I really am falling in love with this very well made slippy!.:)


    Mike Pierson and cigarrodog like this.

    I bought two of these, a #4432 (white delrin) & a #4434 (black delrin), and they had some storage marks. Other than that, they're new, right down to factory edges on a couple of the blades. They were a little gummy from sitting for so long, but once I cleaned & oiled them, they were in such good shape that they became my "dress" knives, for special occasions. (We're going to a nice dinner tonight, so the white one gets to go out tonight. :thumbup: )

    I'm on a constant lookout for anything by Frontier now . . .

    thx - cpr

    Today, for the first time I am carrying these. Peanut in its own pouch, Fong custom in Paul Long pouch given to me by a friend on the forum for Christmas clipped to the inside of my jeans. Today is a Good Day to be alive.

    I carried a stockman and CV Soddie Jr. today. This is the only stockman that I own mow and the only one that I will carry. I modified this one some time back turning the spey into a secondary clip and the sheepfoot into a wharncliffe. Spey blades have turned into a pet peeve for me recently. I never use them. You won't find an unused knife in my house and to have a knife with an unused blade, in my opinion, is just as bad. This one is an old cheapo with some kind of synthetic scales, but it sharpens nice and feels right at home in my front pocket.
