    Like Jack I was unaware of what a 34OT is until now. But I surely would not let one like this go! :thumbsup::)

    I don't like the Swinden key so no longer own any knives using that construction. That will be the reason I never own a 34OT.

    Hey thank you! I didn’t know the final product would turn out to look like this so I never even took a “before” picture. The scales were pure brown, almost black but a good cleaning and some oil brought them back to new. I was shocked they looked this well under all of the grime.

    Here she is! Lot of blade in a little package, very nice size to the sheepsfoot. Many thanks Jim(@315 ), this is certainly a fine example. A bit smaller than I have been carrying lately but a more than capable working knife. I’ll definitely carry thissun around a bit and try it out!

    Wow, memory lane. I don't think I've had a Schrade like that for decades. Reminds me of learning how to whittle as a kid.

    Just the other day I got my first 34OT. I had a 108OT but it was too tiny, so I got rid of it. I like the 34 OT so far, seems like a good knife.

    I think you’ll find the 34OT to be about the perfect size to always have a knife with you. Not too big to be cumbersome and capable enough for almost any task:thumbsup:

    I havent owned one yet but it looks like it will be on the list. You see im a fan of the slicey stockman pattern, and only currently owning one GEC 82 stockman, I will need to back this up with a similar knife. A 34ot in carbon will do that just nicely.

    Have had one or two to trade on over the years but never kept one to carry.
    They seem to have decent metal for the price range ( talking about the older US made ones ).
    One thing I didn't like and I'm surprised no one ever mentions it, is that the rivets in the old timers and uncle henrys did not go all the way through the bolsters, just through the liners, which makes for a weaker knife.
    I've seen several with loose blades.
    My grandfather brought this to my attention years ago. He was a serious knife trader and collector. I surely miss that man.
