    I’m boring, I know. But this satisfies me. A Lambsfoot and a G&T.

    Mail delivered to me today a like brand new 1971, nine dot, Case 6392 Stockman. In the picture is a Hummingbird guitar I bought in 1971. I can’t play it but my son who came along much later can play exceedingly well. :)

    I think I fixed it.
    A wee bit of grinding to round the corner of the tang when the blade starts to move, thinned the pile side liner maybe 0.001 inch, extended the inner side of the swede
    down and toward the tip.
    (all without taking the thing apart)
    The Budding/Spey blade opens without complaint or argument now. :)

    Only "problem" now is choosing between the Marbles MR431 and the Rough Ryder RR1740.
    I gave up trying to choose between them, and decided to carry both. :confused::rolleyes::eek::oops:

    When I need a stockman I'll just use the one that jumps into my hand first. :D

    Nice 9 dot, Les!
    Nice Hummingbird too! I've got a 1968 that I pick and strum now and then.

    Man I like that knife! Is it ok for me to say that even though I did the work? I don't care, it turned out awesome! :D

    Oil of Olae?

    Is that the original Tool?
    I have had several "improvements" from Leatherman, but none is as handy as the original. Carry, and use, mine every day.

    Thanks Gary. The knife looks like they just made it. I was a hippie college dropout when I bought that in ‘71 planning on learning how to play. That didn’t work out for me but I managed to hang on to it till I could pass it on to my son.
