Holy Smokes. I started a serious effort to sharpen my 1978 Western model 062. The thing was almost as dull as a butter knife. A sharpened with a Smith diamond stone at 25° and it has taken a good couple hours of trial and error to finally get *sections* of the blade to shave hair off my arm like a Buck 110.

Admittedly I was at it so long I sometimes grew impatient or lazy and scratched the flat of the blade with the stone in some places, but I am becoming happier with the end result. Just needs finesse now...

What the heck steel were these made from?

Might be as simple as the heat treat?  When sharpening steels that are challenging I tend to take a break.  Some simple carbon steels and even some SAK have given me trouble  :dunno:.  I step away and come back so I don't try to brute force it into submission  :rofl:

Western 901 Camper

Nice 901 Camper David! :like: :tu: :tu:

When I was growing up that was the knife I carried the most. I had no idea that Swiss Army knives existed, so I was amazed by the tools the 901 had.

In the picture the one on top is the one I carried the most. I bought both of them new, but the other one was bought quite a bit later on.

Nice knives everyone.

Since the subject line mentioned Wayne,this would be an appropriate thread to display this again.

I think some of the later Westerns used stainless steel.

My latest 657. This one has two things about it I've never seen on any other 657. It has Rogers bone and a nail nick instead of a long pull.
