There's some really nice stag there.  :drool: :drool:
I have to admit I know nothing about Hen & Rooster, it's not a brand I grew up with. Maybe I should start looking at them.

I only grew up with it because my dad collects them ;) They have been in business since 1845 I think :think: The date may even be on one of the blades :D

Wow, I almost missed this post.  Awesome collection Poncho!!  :cheers:

I'll have agree with Dean here.  There is some gnarly stag in there that really caught my eye!

I've had my eye on a H&R whittler lately, and this might just send me over the edge!  :to:

I quite love them and the green handled one I have is a whittler and they are very fine quality knives IMO and are worth what they cost :tu:

You know you want one Terry :pok:

In fact if you look closely at the emblem of the green one you will notice a mustang instead of the H&R regular emblem :tu: It is a mustang whittler and I have carried this one in the past but just not a lot ;)

Oh, I know and it's the Little Mustang that I'm looking at in particular. 

Just stop already.   ::)

I would advice that you see th H@R before you buy it, or get the seller to send you some photographs. Check for blade rub, blade centering and soft springs

I do always buy in person  (well the stag anyways) I use to carry a 4 bladed congress with the bigger bolsters in carbon steel and stag handles just like the one in the pics but it isn't as new looking ;) I don't think I have any that have blade rub but have heard that can be a problem with some of them sometimes  :tu: I have also carried a few of these in the pics but it has been several years now since any of them have seen the inside of a pocket :D

Also I forgot to mention that the Damascus steel ones are made in Spain from German steel :cheers:

I like them in the pictures (H&R, RR, Buck, Case, all) but SAKs are more modern with tools ready for today's world.
Still, these classic shapes and materials are very nice.

I have a dealer that I trust.  That is the only guy I would buy from online.

That is why I carry SAKs as well myself ;) I do love these traditionals as well but I would rather have the tools on my SAKs :cheers: It is still a joy to go and look at these beautiful knives and buy one for my birthday some years or as a Christmas present :dd:

It all depends on how much you use the blades on your knives and what you use them for.  If you have a lot of cutting duties, you're still better off with 1095 or D2 steel.  You can always back it up with a plier multi (or a SAK for that matter) and have the same functions.  If you're saying that a SAK is better suited for urban living, I agree with you.  Some of us don't live in urban areas.

I personally don't look at it as traditional vs. SAK, necessarily.  I would be much more apt to ask why someone needs a tactical folder more in "today's world" than they need a traditional folder.  I would bet that the vast majority of duties the tactical folders are used for would be better suited to a traditional folder, if not more so.

Yes, urban living. While on vacation I also like a folder with whittling qualities. I use a Pioneer with pruner or a Ranger Hunter but a couple of small blades would help (sadly, I would need a punch/awl too, for makkng holes).
The first soldier's SAK looked a lot like these traditionals, it looks like a Barlow when closed. SAKs evolved since then but the fixation to celidor, iconic SAK shaoe and drop point blades make it look a bit boring compared to traditional blade shapes and handle material. Wenger made some Clip points and both brands maked other types if handles but they are mostly for collectors and nit that common.
I will sharpen my Wenger Stock knife (with Stockman configuration) and see what it does with wood.

There was very little interest of traditional knives or at least my H&R knives way back whenI first joined here as well ;) when I tried to have a thread about them there wasn't much interest either so I gave up and just started talking SAKs :whistle: There is some of the same members here now but a lot of the newer crowd seems to be more in tune with them though (newer meaning members from the last 6 or so years :D )
