My guess is Whiskey Bone.1998 Case #18 medium Stockman. This one was in great shape, small rust spot on blade spring beneath the clip blade for some reason. Looked like never carried,never used, still has the factory edge, and it's sharp. Removed the rust, cleaned it, oiled it, threw it in my pocket this morning.

Edit: Does anyone know what they call the color on the #18? Wasn't on the box. Box didn't even say Stockman, just "3-blade PKT" and then the pattern number.
The colors are not always consistent. Some of their recent "Dark Red Bone" is not very dark, and my two amber bone knives are very different. One of them even varies greatly from the other side.Thanks, you think? I thought about that, but it's not even close to the same color as my Whiskey Bone Tribal Lock. That thing is dang near neon. Maybe a color change they made over the years.
Black is beautiful, Dean!
Thanks, Dean; your and others' photos of the Case CV Barlow were a major influence in my buying decision. I'm glad you like the Farmer, and that you sent me one of your "excess" Uncle Henry stockmans.
Thanks, HnS. Here's a pic of my latest Pocket Pal:
