    Just got home and found this in the mail. 1989 Winchester yellowboy sowbelly stockman with fantastic bone covers, Queen Cutlery made I believe.
    Extremely pleased with this one, smooth pulls and blade action with no half stops. Very nice fit and finish and the bone just glows. Transitions from scales to bolsters, plus shield can't even be felt while running fingers over them. Happy buyer!:) 1989 Winchester sowbelly  - 1.jpeg 1989 Winchester -2 - 1.jpeg

    The shape of that clip blade is fantastic, if not to say sexy!

    Thank you kindly.:thumbsup: I'm liking the clip blades shape as well plus it has nice long swedge cuts on all blades and the deep cut nail nicks.

    It just arrived today, so it is my newest ... until Monday or so anyway, when the two (BTI) Old Timers are scheduled to arrive ...
    It is a "traditional" knife, though I'll admit few here would pick it as their first choice for EDC ... except maybe for work.

    Stanley 10-499. This one is high vis. yellow (unexpected) rather than the standard "Where the heck did I set it down?" silver/gray.

    This week I added an early 2000s little Queen Pearl #2 jack with some beautiful mother of pearl covers and D2 steel. Same size as a 34OT, but much prettier!

    Just arrived Ohta FK5P in Birch. This is my first friction folder and I am quite pleased with it. Thin ground blade in D2 in a most useful blade shape. It is also amazingly lightweight. 1CB90908-CADA-4D27-A515-49981963294B.jpeg

    I regretted selling the first Saldana Dog Bone I had so I asked Manny to make me another. This one is even better than my first. For me it's the perfect single blade EDC slippie.

    This one arrived on Saturday, while we were out of town....
    I really enjoy the Case 06247pen knives that I grabbed off the bay, other than the very strong pulls... they are single spring, opposite end blades, slim and very handy. I did not know that Case made a little brother to it.... enter the 06244.... this one is in brown delrin, not bone, but it is a 1974 in unused condition. It's odd that the spring on this one would almost be considered "light", compared to its big brother. This one is probably a 5 on the main, and maybe a 6 on the secondary. I expect they will loosen a little, with use. I included a couple of pics with the two sizes together for comparison.

    A Schrade wirejack fish knife in nearly new condition outside of a few faint scratches on the pile side and some scratches on the finger guard. IMG_3130.JPG IMG_3132_copy_1024x441.jpg

    Received this GEC Viper through a trade. A bit of blade play but otherwise it's spectacular! Next to the WCLF this might be my favorite GEC pattern.

    1971 Camillus 301 ( I know I know ) doesn’t look like much to someone that isn’t freaking obsessed with them... 4CC84986-4EFB-4D80-9C84-CE6AC2A21F17.jpeg

    But when you specialize ( I call it specialize my wife calls it obsessed) in a model/ pattern you learn where to look for wear and tear because you know how they age. This one was listed as good used condition but I had a feeling...and it paid off again. Blades unused, bolsters scratch free just tarnish, Well spotless and joints still sporting the factory oil. 431D0526-9ACC-412C-A83E-C81308FFCC55.jpeg CAF1C609-BE23-4161-977F-6C25B227E1AD.jpeg 14F0B8B4-F098-4D32-B02E-CC63171CE7A5.jpeg 7FCB0335-DBAD-46D0-844C-44F73F893F05.jpeg

    I could be wrong, but the 925SS probably stands for .925 Sterling Silver, which, I'm guessing the shield is.
    I think this is the same knife as my Queen... and it is in D2 steel. It would be interesting to know if they were the same knife, just labeled differently.

    Hornetguy, Taylor's S&M is the same knife as yours, a #3L, but from series XIII of the Keystone series, made in 2003. Blade steel is 420HC stainless. Only the Queen branded knives had D2 tool steel before the DFC buyout; after that just about anything is possible. @tmd_87

    Ok... that makes sense. I bet the S&M version would be easier to sharpen.... that D2 is HARD... I don't know what Queen hardened it to, but it was really tough to put an edge on it. And that was on a diamond stone.

    Oh Yah-Hippy! Allegedly the MAM large sheepsfoot arrives tomorrow, and the (BTI) Old Timer 858OT and 25OT the day after. :D
    Something good for a ugly old guy to look forward to. :)

    I wasn't a fan of the F&F on the Schrade/GEC Fire and Ice I recently purchased, so it got returned. In the meantime, I received this Case :)

    Well ... the (no blade lock) MAM sheepsfoot friction folder arrived today. :D

    If the blade stamp is correct, they sent the wrong one. :( The one I ordered should not say "INOX"

    Other than that minor detail, it seems O.K....
    Nice and sharp, feels a wee bit better in hand than my Opinel Number 8, for example. (The Opinel is the only other friction folder (lock ring be daRned; it is still a friction folder, especially if you don't use the lock ring) that I have.

    I think it'll work for what I need ... even if the (shorter) sheepsfoot blade on one of my stockmans could do the job.
