Wow really nice find there hornetguy! Just beautiful!...... and here's the third of my newest additions. Case Swayback Jack in stag, with TruSharp blades. The stag on this one is very nice, and has a good "grippy" feel in hand. The edges were not ground terribly well, and I am working to gently straighten them out. It was pretty stiff in opening when I got it, but after flushing the joints for about 30 minutes, it's much better. Of all my swaybacks, this one is the "worst", quality wise, but it's still great. My other swaybacks have been pretty much flawless.... this one is close, but needs a few "touch-ups" to get it to that level. Otherwise, it's very nice, no gaps, blades pretty well centered.... just a really nice knife. And, did I mention....... stag?
Just got this Boker Gentleman Club Knife today and IMHO it is absolutely beautiful! Outstanding fit and finish, N690 blade steel, pinned shield, flush in all positions and great walk and talk. Yes, it was a little pricey at almost $200 but it just Oozes quality.

Got the belt knife to go with 'em ?I'm excited to finally get this one... Mint In Package
I have one more to go to complete the collection... The Roper Small Stockman
I keep a Buck 112 Light in my Jeep kit... and a SAK Tinker.Don’t keep one in the jeep for the woods? Maybe part of a recovery kit…?
No, they will stay in the package... Just fun to look at but not something I'd really carry.Are you planning to open and use all the Red Ryder pocket knives or just collect them ?
I thought about that too... They are pretty readily available so I have time to think about it.If you are just gonna collect them theres no reason not to truly complete the set.
No need to compare them, display the knives your grandma sends you in a special place, one day they will be your greatest treasures.
I like that knife that your Grandma gave you. It reminds me a lot of this knife that was given to me by a friend. They are both pretty cool in my opinion.
