Totally agree.  Love this thread, and the trad carry thread too.  I can see more traditional knives coming my way soon. ::)

Really nice!!!!
I nearly bought this exact one but almost never, ever use the pen blade on a Jack (it's usually too hard for me to open, esp. on a GEC) and I have been wanting an orange GEC for a while........plus the single blade was about $20 cheaper than the Jack.   :tu:

It will be a farm knife and the orange (and the bail) will help me keep up with it as well.

Thanks SAK Guy. :tu:  I like the combination of two blades and use the smaller blade for most cutting.  The small blade on this one is easy to open to the half stop then difficult to open fully - and it's a little stiff to close too, but is loosening up now.  The large blade is easy to pinch and open fully - hopefully yours is the same.  I'm being lax with cleaning after cutting fruit (on purpose) so it's starting to show a nice patina already.  This one happened to be in stock with a UK supplier at about the same price I would have paid to get one shipped over from the US.  It is a big knife though, and now I think I need to get a 2-blade Lick Creek boys knife in the same OD micarta to go with it. :D

 :like:  I think you'll have your cuttin' chores covered...and everything else for that matter.  The bone on that mini trapper has a nice, natural look to it.  I like that in traditionals.  I prefer to leave the flashy colors to the SAKs.

I've looked at those too and decided they were a bit small for my arthritic mitts.

Admittedly not carrying this because I'm sure I'd get in trouble, and it's too nice to use but I just got this Cattaraugus folding hunter in, a little birthday present to myself.

An awesome beast PD!!!

Thanks.  I just got that one, and it's my first German traditional pocket knife.  I'm impressed.  It's solid with great snap and good F&F.

SAKs are traditional (and first SAKs had traditional style scales) and the Opinel I EDC is traditional, but with these threads you made me feel the need for another type of traditional.
All I have to do is choose handle (horn I guess), color (anything but brown), type (Stockman or Trapper, but Congress and Whittling count too) and brand (Rough Rider were suggested to me). I might post a pic later.

I can't help the way you feel about it, but I would agree that those are all traditional.  Pretty much everything that was around at the turn of the century (the 20th century, of course) would count as traditional in my mind.  Opinel, Merkator, Douk-Douk, and any SAK with a metal bolster would certainly count, to name just a few, and I would expect to see any of them in this thread.  The vintage SAKs are certainly built more in the tradition than any Rough Rider, IMO.  I feel that way because, unlike Rough Rider, they were made by a company in a country that has a history of building those knives.  With that said, Rough Rider does build "traditional style" knives and I'm told they are of decent quality.

We have 16 Case models available locally. http://knife.gr/?page_id=...brand_id=35&lang_id=0
I like the blue Stockman and Sodbusters. Any good?

Sure.  Any of the stockmans or sodbusters are good knives.  Of the stockmans, I like the blue one best simply because it has a spey blade rather than a pen blade.  The "pocket worn" red one is the same.  That is just my preference though, for the spey blade.  I would shy away from the dark red bone because I've seen several that weren't dyed well, but I do prefer the CV steel that one comes in over stainless.  The sodbusters are classics and tough as nails, and that might be the way to go to "test the waters" so to speak at a lower price.

Is that one carbon and one stainless?  Do you have a preference?  I was thinking of buying an Opinel to try it out and was leaning toward carbon as my general preference.

However you like your Trads, you should apply that to Opies. I have both and can't decide which I like better.....    :facepalm:
