Heading out with the Boker Tree Brand  (Solingen) 5464 Beer Barrel  Congress today.  While I normally do not carry a mint, boxed older knife (I think it's from the early '00s), it has started to get a few rust spots from just laying in its carton in the knife box since early Spring when I inherited  it from my great uncle.

How's that Queen City working out for you Dean?  Last you mentioned it, you had it clamped in the sharpener.  I believe the Queen City line used to be different steel (not D2), is that right, or am I confused?

Looks like you set a nice new bevel on it.

You're right the Queen City & the Workhorse line are line are both 1095.
It's working out great, I'm really liking the concept of two main blades. I Reprofiled it to 23 per side & 300 grit on the diamonds, so it will be a good working edge. Hardest 1095 I've ever seen.

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

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

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.

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.

Post by: NutSAK on September 22, 2016, 11:39:26 PM
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.

My initial impressions are that, like any Copperhead, I love the looks and feel of it in the hand.  I'm really drawn toward canoes and copperheads these days due to how comfortable they are to handle.  It is a bit shorter than I like, unfortunately, at 3 5/16".  I could stand to have a little more room on the frame--maybe another 1/8" or so, but it's a comfortable size for EDC.  I'll report back again after I've had a chance to sharpen it and use it a bit.

It is, isn't it?  I've always felt like the #66 GEC is the perfect size for my EDC, and it's exactly 1/8" longer than this KC copperhead.  The first time I held the copperhead, that 1/8" was immediately obvious.  It just feels "crowded".  3 1/2" to 3 3/4" is about the range I prefer also, but I'm good up to 3 7/8" with some patterns such as the Case Copperhead and Sowbelly.

It's kind of strange I have a Fallkniven PC that's 4” and I never notice it's in my pocket but I sometimes I'll notice the 4' queen stockman.
I've carried the 4' stockmans way longer than any other pattern, my tastes have changed a bit in the last 15 years.

Still agonizing with terminology. A knife selling site lists Case as "traditional"  and Opinel &  Svord (and similars I guess) as "primitive".

Still agonizing with terminology. A knife selling site lists Case as "traditional"  and Opinel &  Svord (and similars I guess) as "primitive".

I've found that on an international forum it helps to not to over think it.

The problem with the term traditional is there is no official definition of a traditional knife. It will vary from forum to forum and continent to continent. To muddy the waters even more this is an international forum so what might be considered traditional in Europe may not be considered traditional in the U.S. Which explains why Opinel is considered traditional by many here. Before the internet I had never heard of a Opinel.

If this was a U.S. Based site then by the strictest definition of the term, a traditional would have pinned construction. With the blade pivot pinned to a bolster & handles pinned to the liners. Like a stockman, barlow, trapper, whittlers etc. The strictest definition is not often used.

Another way to look at it is the pattern is a very large part of what defines "Traditional". Any steel can be used to make the blade. Looking at it that way an Opinel NO.3 looks just like an Opinel NO.12

Miller Bros made a Surveyor pattern with screwed on handles. Once you use a screw in the pivot it becomes a modern design. A modernized traditional maybe but still in a different class.

As a general rule a traditional is a two hand opener, no assist, thumb studs, filppers or belt clips are allowed. Liner locks like the TL-29 and lock backs like the Buck 501 are considered traditional. The designs have been around for a hundred years more or less.

The SAK Pioneer has the same tool load out as a Camillus boy scout knife. I don't believe many would consider a Swiss Champ a traditional, it's more of a tool than a knife. So SAK's tend to get their own thread. Multitool.org has a very large SAK forum so it would confuse things to see them posted as a traditional in the traditional thread as well.
Title: Re: What Traditional Knife are you toting today?
Post by: dks on September 25, 2016, 07:15:32 AM
The traditional forum in Bladeforums tends to accept as traditional any knife that would have been carried by someone 40, 50 years
From their guide:
"If a regular knife user of the mid 1960's would find nothing out of the ordinary about the design, then it's traditional.

That means large Buck 110-ish lockbacks are in.

SAKs date to the late 1800's. If they are not one hand opening, they are in. (See comments on materials of construction.)

Modern locking mechanisms such as Walker liner locks, pocket clips, holes / studs to allow one hand opening are all out. (Traditional liner locks, such as the lock on a TL29, are in.) Add a clip to a stockman, and it needs to be posted elsewhere. By the same token, if it is traditional except for a clip and you remove the clip, feel free to post it here.

We tend to have some tolerance when it comes to fixed blades. But, new designs with features such as glass breakers, are not included in this forum.

We give leeway on materials of construction. So if you have a nice stockman with G10 covers, it's traditional enough for us. After all, plastics have been used on knife handles since the 1800's. Stainless steel has been used in cutlery since the 1920's, so stainless is considered traditional. And even though PM alloys are new developments, that fella in the mid-1960's would never know the difference if he were looking at the knife, so they are OK, too."

So, for Europe (and elsewhere - higonokami in Japan for example) and especially the mediterranean region, a basic friction folder, that is a folding knife with no spring to hold it open, is THE traditional knife.
This was the most basic knife and it was easy for everybody to make. This was the type of knife I remember people using as it was cheap and easily available. I can make one in 20 minutes, using an old blade.
Fixed blades were also commonly carried by many working people, especially in th countryside.

In the new world there is a lot of influence from the UK, as there were many knives being exported, slipjoins, from there to the colonies. So, what they call traditional tends to be what Sheffield makers were/are producing. Multiple blade slipjoints are a US characteristic knife.
So, just because a US seller did not see his father carry an opinel type knife it does not automatically mean that the whole world has to accept that this type of knife is not traditional. The buck 110 is considered, in the US to be a traditional knife but most Europeans will put it in the same group as a locking spyderco, sebenza atc.

Notice that the bladeforums definition ignores friction folders, being a US forum.

I dont carry traditional pocket knives much any more. Carried them most of my life. I still like them very much just dont carry them very often.

That's an awesome Western!!!!!   Laguiole's are very cool!!! I just never found the right one at the right price or I would already have one!

Thanks for clarifying the term "traditional" guys.
Since a little boy I remember Swiss Army knives and Opinels (and our Cretan similar knives) and some Italian Stilettos, which are my tradition. American knives were total strangers until MTO.
Calling Opinel, Svord, Douk-Douk, Merkator and Hayns' Helpers (which I saw here for the first time) primitive is a big mistake.
Take my Opinel Jardin for example. How primitive it is, a knife that uses the same steel as Skandinavian knives, is fully flat ground, lightweight, opens with one hand, completely silently, locks in both open and closed position with one hand, has a spearblade that can be reconfigured by the user any way he wants, a handle that can be engraved or sculpted by the user himself (thinning and making a convienient for one hand opening form included), is sharp and strong enough for every task, has a spine for scratching anything from fire rods to paint drops, has a reknown logo on the blade, can be tarnished and costs so little you can buy ten for the price of a mid class tactical folder, while it is as much a weapon without screaming it aloud, with that archetype tool format it has?
I wouldn't call that primitive, since it does more than any other folder knife I know.
My Helle Skala needs two hands to be opened, my Endura clicks with a noise that's music in the ears of a mall ninja but not a guy who served in a Special Forces camp, and all simple blade modern folders I see around can do less than the Opinel, which comes in any size you might want. And the format can be explored further, as Opinel does now with Outdoor, DIY and Explore.
Simple would be a better word than primitive, but even that is wrong since it's simple in concept but not in functionality, as it does more (for less). It's like calling a shark primitive, following a cognitive mistake of seeing evolution as a ladder. No, sharks were functional from the beginning and they stayed that way because they were almost perfect at such an early stage.
I would call Opinel an "evolved archetype". And a Neolithic obsidian knife "primitive".

Question for the knowing. Why (or is it a style of sorts) is it that so many different looking styled traditional knives have the word Jack in them. Eureka Jack, Indian Jack, Fremont Jack etc. They all seem to be of much variety. What is the common denominator?

I don't think it has to be 2 blades (I'm not sure if that was a reply to me anyway)

So if it's one blade, that isn't inherently specific? I thought it'd be something more unique or clarifying  ;)

Love the swayback jack!!  :dd:  Yours has really nice chestnut bone.

Thank you!  I like it.  It does seem to have a bit more red/orange than most I've seen.

The more recent jigged chestnut knives I've seen seem to have more contrasting black than the older ones, which I like.

Here is a pic of mine.  You can see that it isn't as dark in the jigging on the head end.  It could very well just be a difference in the lighting, though.

Family Reunion today--decided to carry one each of the knives I had from various relatives.  I didn't carry the homemade Kutmaster "Loom Knife" one of my great uncles who passed away a year ago (early September) had--he carried that knife and only that knife since the early '70s--despite having a huge knife and SAK collection that dwarfed mine.  I promised his widow, my great aunt I'd never carry it--so that's why I didn't.  Eventually I'll make my own Kutmaster (or Klein) "Loom Knife".

1974-1980 Buck 110, representing one of my great uncles who passed away due to dementia in October, last year. The knife was carried on the same property the reunion was held on--my great-grandmother (who passed six years ago, the property was purchased by my great aunt and uncle (the one that had the aforementioned Kutmaster).  Used it for quite a bit of heavy cutting--including cutting up an apple off a tree. (I always remove the core before eating apples).

1994 Buck Creek Diamondback--representing another great uncle that died in '09.  The knife was found before he passed in a Jeep he'd given my father. which my father borrowed a winch off to put on an older Jeep.  That "newer" Jeep I'll likely restore, eventually, or at least get running.   Used the sheepsfoot for opening a case of canned Coca-Cola


Alexander Pocket Screwdriver advertising industrial lubricant maker Mantek, which my grandfather had gotten in the '80s during his job as a coal mine purchasing agent.  He's still living.


And finally, representing myself-- Victorinox 1993 Soldier.  It opened over a dozen bottles of Mexican Coca-Cola today.   A Soldier is a traditional in my book--not too different from a Scout knife.

Laguiole again today. My liking of the Laguiole goes back to a couple Pat Crawford customs I once owned before they were stolen. Mr Crawfords design was based off the Laguiole. One of the things I really like about the Laguiole design is the blade to handle ratio. You get a lot of blade for the handle size. Which translates into a more compact size. I've long suspected the Laguiole had an influnce in the Texas Toothpick design. I have no proof of that.    :)

I've always liked the Laguiole design, and I've looked at them before, but never come up with one that I felt was "authentic" enough.  Seems like there are a lot of knockoffs around, and I'd really like to find at a decent price from the correct area of the world.  There are so many options out there, and I don't really know what I'm looking for.

1. What is a Swayback?
2. Where may I find a Seahorse Whittler in Europe?

1. "Swayback" just refers to the reverse curve of the spine on the Case jacks that you see above.  The model name is "Swayback Jack".
2. Sorry, can't help with that one.  They're already becoming a bit harder to find in the US again.  Perhaps Case has put the Seahorse back in the "vault" for a while?

The Seahorse you mean?  Yeah, it looks like a great whittler and I've always planned to buy one, but never have.

Yes, the Seahorse. What a blade!

Something very different today a Kentucky Shiner. This is not at all like what I usually carry but it is very comfortable in hand & for some reason I like it.
You have to put it next to something familiar to all to get an idea of it's proportions.

Yeah, I saw a BEM canoe on the 'bay a couple of days ago, but I thought they were asking too much.  In hindsight, I wish I'd collected a few more patterns in BEM.  It's pretty unique--not a material that you see often for scales.

That's some pretty wormgroove on that Schatt!  :cheers:

Thanks guys.  :tu:

The 009 Barlow is one of Case's best patterns, IMO.  They were one of the last knife manufacturers that made them in a semi-traditional "unpolished" manner, with visible saw and sanding marks on the bone and bolsters, bone irregularities, etc.  It's too bad they no longer produce them.

Post by: NutSAK on October 05, 2016, 01:24:14 PM
I love it.  Typical, outstanding GEC build quality and the sheepsfoot and pen are a great combo.  It's not as pretty as the linen micarta, but for my uses the orange delrin is perfect--tough, lightweight and easily spotted if dropped.  I like that the main blade can be pinched open, and it should even work fine with most gloves.  I need to put a lanyard on it and I'm good to go!

Thanks guys!  I don't see myself finding a better work knife, especially for the price.  A couple of knives I've used in the past for this purpose will be sold soon.  I just have no use for them anymore, really, and I would rather my collection be more EDC-type knives than work knives.  Heck, if I could find just one EDC knife that fit its role as well as this knife does, I guess I wouldn't need a "collection"!

Yeah, right...   ::)  :D

Thx David!  Our bunnies stay down by the gate where they can keep an eye on the cats!  :D  Only had one caught (a young Jack) right after my Daughter brought us her cats to live here. There was a big black, green eyed Tom we called Big Boy caught that Jack and brought it to the porch to show us.

For a traditional knife, think along the lines of something your grandfather would recognize in 1960.

Thank you Terry! They are getting fewer in number and interstellar in price lately. Think I paid $25.00 for that nicer EDC grade one (above) and around $40 ea for the other two which are Exc+ and Mint. I would like one in a box but those are way high (and so are the sellers at those prices)!  :D

 :dd:  Beautiful stockman.  I've been watching these on ebay and trying to find a good deal.

Thank you Terry! They are getting fewer in number and interstellar in price lately. Think I paid $25.00 for that nicer EDC grade one (above) and around $40 ea for the other two which are Exc+ and Mint. I would like one in a box but those are way high (and so are the sellers at those prices)!  :D

I thought I would try a little experiment this week, I'm going to pair a Queen barlow with a Old Timer 72OTB.
I've never owned a dog leg jack aka peanut this small, I've handled them but always dismissed the idea & put them back.
I used $8.50 in Amazon points and had this at my door for $8.00, it has the Chinese equivalent to 440C blades & bone handles, It's actually a very well built knife, no blade wobble, walk and talk is good, fit and finish is much better than what you'd expect on a 16 dollar knife. The size of the nail nick on the small blade is a bit silly but other than that I can't fault it..
So these are the two you'll be looking at this week. Sorry  :D

Thank you David! I really liked your 8OT the other day!  The Walden with the orig style nick is the classic form of that model IMO.  That exact model was my first knife given to me by Dad back in the mid 60's.  Lost it in that damn fire.....

Thanks SG! Sorry you lost that knife in the fire. Im sure it had a special place for you coming from your father. The Scrade Walden 8 OT with the matchstriker pull is a classic of that model. It would be nice to find one of the Schrade Walden 881 with bone handle and matchstriker pulls. But those are usually out of my price range at the moment. They usually command a tidy sum these days.    :)

Thanks pal!  Yours brought back such a flood of memories that I found a NOS Walden 8OT on the bay and bought it.   :facepalm: :facepalm:

Yeah, the bone matchstriker 881's are awesome but too high for me as well....my 881 is newer, has the reg nail nick and is probably delrin.  :D

Remember This conservation David? Well, it's not a Walden and probably not bone but it is vintage and does have a matchstrike nail nick...and a BSA insignia.   :facepalm:

Maybe this is better in its own thread, not sure.

I've been very interested in getting a traditional style folder for a long time now, but have never really known where to start.

I would plan on using this like any other user knife, so it would need to be pretty robust. My EDC for the last several years has been 93mm alox pioneer. I really like that handle and blade size and would like to keep close to it. Not bigger though.

I really like the look of the GEC boys knife with the micarta or smooth bone handles, but being closer to an 84mm SAK in size, I think it would be too small. I also have a strong preference for blade shapes that are not clip point. I.e, I prefer spear, Spey, sheepsfoot, etc.

I also have a slight preference for carbon steel just for a change from SAK steel.

So, what day you traditional experts? Anything fit these criteria?
Title: Re: What Traditional Knife are you toting today?
Post by: NutSAK on October 10, 2016, 03:33:14 PM
Canoes are very similar in size to a Pioneer, but are thinner since they're only one layer.  The blade on the pictured Queen canoe is the same length as a 91mm SAK.  It looks shorter because the blade is deeper from spine to edge.  The number of jack-pattern knives that will fit your requirements are numerous.

You're right though--this discussion should probably be in its own thread.

I have a single blade, ebony version of this and it's a really nice knife. bigger than a 93mm ALOX.

So, what say you traditional experts? Anything fit these criteria?
I would point you to barlows but those are my favorites. Barlows are available in spear and clip, so that might be a good starting point.
You do know that question will get you a 10 different answers from 12 different people. In that 3 3/8 to 3 5/8 inch range there are half a dozen patterns that may suit you. With prices from $20 to $100.
My best advise would be to take a day trip if necessary and handle some knives in person. That way you can drool, eye ball, fondle & give it a pocket test.

Very nice.  When I think of slipjoint in the American/English tradition, it's jacks like these that I picture in my head.  Just simple beauty.

Interesting Trapper Poncho. I cant imagine a ceramic blade on a Trapper lasting very long. While they are sharp they are also brittle. If you only use that spley blade for skinning critters it might last a while.    :think:       :)

I'm late again. Toting the Western 657 today.Going early so I wont be late tomorrow. Tommorrows carry will be a old Western States Jack knife I just got this morning. According to the blade stamps it was made between 1911 and 1950 so its older than me.     :D    Its not in the best of shape but still very usable. I got it mostly for its place in Western knife history.

I've spent a lot of time daydreaming on the GEC website over the last month or two. Can be hard to see the models on there - you need to look through all of them.

I'm late again. Toting the Western 657 today.Going early so I wont be late tomorrow. Tommorrows carry will be a old Western States Jack knife I just got this morning. According to the blade stamps it was made between 1911 and 1950 so its older than me.     :D    Its not in the best of shape but still very usable. I got it mostly for its place in Western knife history.

Most Case toothpicks are 3" closed but some are 4 1/2". A toothpick can be up to 5 1/4", so you might want to give a length you are looking for.

Added another traditional blade to my carry partway through the day. I went to my brother's for Sunday lunch, gifted him a PST and Solingen multifunctional knife, and got back my old Marbles Sunfish and my fillet knife which he's had for about two years or so

Here's a better look at the Case Barlow I carried yesterday, and the scrolled bolster one I'm carrying today.

Ordinarily this knife would only come out of the drawer on formal occasions, as it's my dressiest slippy. However, I'll consider tormenting Smashie to be a good enough reason to carry it today  :whistle:

Be sure the joints are clean.  I've seen some recent Cases that were tight and  full of polishing compound.  Cleaning and lubing with mineral oil brought them back to the perfect walk and talk.

I usually use toothpicks and/or pipe cleaners to get out any visible "stuff", then flush the joints with oil several times, until the oil comes out clean--not black.

That's good advise :salute :salute:, unlike SAK's the final finishing can leave behind some residue and/or metal dust.
There are lots of ways to do it but I use WD-40 to flush the joints out. Because it's always here and most of it evaporates, leaving behing only a film.
Blow it out or give it time to dry. then use your favorite oil on the joints.

Yeah, I think I'm going to quit now.  That's probably as close as I'll ever get.  :D

Even if you get the color right, a picture will never show the "depth" that the grain has on these handles anyway.

Hen and Rooster and the way I measure it is 3 5/8 " but it may call for it to be 3 1/2" :shrug: it is a great pocketable size though :tu:

I'm convinced that nobody makes a better canoe than Queen.  I just got this one in yesterday.  Like most new Queens it needs edge work but it found its way into my pocket today regardless.  ;)

This is my first experience with Cocobolo.  I like it.  It has the same feel as Gabon ebony but with some nice figure.

It's in even better shape than I though it would be. No wiggle on either blade, strong snap on the main blade. The pen blade is kind of weak but still has a bit of snap. Jigged Bone scales are in perfect shape. Just a few spots on the blades.

I do like the look of that one mate. It has a timeless quality and looks like a good honest no frills worker  :cheers:

I have my Arthur Wright horn senator in my pocket today. A very similar knife in real terms. Lambsfoot rather than sheepsfoot, different scales, extra bolster, and a bit of filework, blah blah blah, but essentially the same thing.

The blade on mine has taken a very good patina, though it has "threatened" to rust in places, and I've occasionally had to tickle up small areas with a bit of wire wool. The horn scales have got a couple of small dings too, and I reckon in another decade or two I should have that "eternal companion" look to it  :D

The horn scales have got a couple of small dings too, and I reckon in another decade or two I should have that "eternal companion" look to it  :D

(pics shown before)

I really like the looks of the Senator but I couldn't quite justify spending the cash on one as they're something like three times the price of the basic sheepsfoot.  Can't argue with the looks though. :drool:

Nice! You seem to have kept that remarkably tarnish free so far Gareth.

That, I'll admit, is an older pic, but despite a reasonable amount of carry and use it's still looking very fresh and shiny. 8)

Really liking this Camillus  :tu:  I sharpened it last night, I don't think this knife has ever seen much use. It looked to me like the factory edge was still on it. A couple of swipes on my Lansky turnbox yielded a razor sharp edge.

Think I want hunter green jogged bone in carbon steel!

It might be hard to find that combo.  The carbon canoes are usually in amber jigged bone these days.

If you want a Case, I would like to suggest that you look for a 70's Case canoe.  Sometime after the 70's, Case's pattern changed from a single spring design to a two-spring design.  The single spring one is built much better, IMO, with a nice thick main blade.  The older ones with the red bone scales are very common on ebay. 

I have one of the recent Case canoes, and it doesn't compare well to the Queen that is pictured above.  The Queen is a single spring build like the older Cases, and I prefer the profile of Queen's deep main blade with more belly and sharper point.  I still think the Case is a good knife--I just wish I had known about the changes before I bought one, so I feel I should pass this information on to you guys.

I plan to do a short write-up on this subject in the future, but maybe these quick pics will help illustrate:


Backsprings, Case top, Queen bottom:

Yes, it's a bit different than collecting SAKs and multitools.  While I think we all collect tools for their usefulness and appreciate the craftsmanship put into them at the same time, with traditional knives there is more of an emphasis on the art and craftsmanship behind them than with other tools.  Similar to multitools, I tend to collect the patterns/configurations that are more useful for me, but the ones that have that handmade, crafted feel are more special than the others.

Think I want hunter green jogged bone in carbon steel!

It might be hard to find that combo.  The carbon canoes are usually in amber jigged bone these days.

If you want a Case, I would like to suggest that you look for a 70's Case canoe.  Sometime after the 70's, Case's pattern changed from a single spring design to a two-spring design.  The single spring one is built much better, IMO, with a nice thick main blade.  The older ones with the red bone scales are very common on ebay. 

I have one of the recent Case canoes, and it doesn't compare well to the Queen that is pictured above.  The Queen is a single spring build like the older Cases, and I prefer the profile of Queen's deep main blade with more belly and sharper point.  I still think the Case is a good knife--I just wish I had known about the changes before I bought one, so I feel I should pass this information on to you guys.

I plan to do a short write-up on this subject in the future, but maybe these quick pics will help illustrate:


Backsprings, Case top, Queen bottom:

When I left home Monday I added this pocket knife to my suitcase so I could render some care to the blades. 
This was my father-n-laws and I received along with several other items that were in a collection box. 
The badge reads 'Uncle Henry' and the blade is marked Schrade+ USA 097UH

Can anyone offer any info or details on this knife? 

I am not sure if this was his EDC or a garage sale find.

Thank you

For the price, it's awesome.

Keeps an edge quite well. They didn't have to put 440 on it for me, atleast not that big, but atleast they call it what it is.

The filework on the backspring is nice. Not perfectly semetrical, but that does show the handwork.

No extending edges, smooth handle, nicely polished blade.

All in all a very classy folder for a VERY reasonable price.

The main blade's edge appeared to have been felt by a file, we'll need to work the rough groves out of the edge. The other two blades took a edge very well. 
Was not aware of STAGLON until today.

An excellent, high quality knife! I have one my Dad gave me!

Here's some excellent background on it from the Schrade Collectors Forum over on Bladeforums!

"Schrade 897UH Signature Premium Stockman

In July 2004, the one hundred year history of Imperial Schrade Corporation came to an end with the forced bankruptcy and October liquidation of assets. During those one hundred years, the name changed several times, as well as company ownership. Several other companies were acquired, sometimes operated in tandem, sometimes absorbed. Begun by George Schrade and his brothers, it evolved over the years into the posession and guidence of Albert and Henry Baer. Albert, ever the business genious, steered the company to expanded markets with new marketing techniques, and new products designed under the watchful eye of Henry, whose signiture would appear on an entire line of upscale folding and fixed blade knives for the last forty years of Schrade's existance. Alongside the now famous Old Timer line of knives, the Uncle Henry Signature knives formed the backbone of Schrade's offerings of knives and tools.

Few knives were as popular as the medium Stockman pattern, the 897UH. The 897UH Uncle Henry Signature Premium Stockman was introduced in the 1967 catalog for a whopping $10. This at a time when a comparable Old Timer was selling for just a bit more than half that amount, and a knife from the rival company, Colonial Knife Company could be bought for even less. Putting this into perspective, a gallon of gas cost 32 cents, a coca-cola was a dime, the average new home was around $20,000, and new cars started at around $2,000. Given these illustrations, ten dollars was not a paltry sum.

The 897UH stockman began production in the early sixties, several years before the 1967 catalog introduction. While stainless steel blades were used from the beginning, several different styles of delrin were tried for the handle material before settling on the faux stag Delrin, later known as "Staglon". Peach seed jigged bone looking Delrin was handsome and used a short while, and several different base Delrin and accent colors were tried. In later years, special limited editions were produced with special handle material, including a 95th anniversary edition.

The knife used the Schrade+ stainless steel three blade pattern that became popular with the 825, 895, 896K, 898, and 899UH. This blade material became a mainstay of the UH line of knives, both folders and fixed. In 1981, 197UH "Cat Paw" was introduced for a a run of a few short years using the familiar serpentine body and the single modified Turkish clip blade. It was one of the very few liner lock knives in the Uncle Henry product line, and a very interesting variation on the 897UH. Evidently the buying public was not swayed to purchase it over the other single blade offerings in the lockback and trapper lines and it was discontinued after a nine year run in 1989.

The 897UH had a closed length of 3 9/16" with a Turkish clip blade of 2 15/16", a 2 1/16" sheepfoot blade, and a 2" spey blade. This combination of blades mounted in the deeply textured serpentine Staglon handles proved to be extremely popular with knife users for more than thirty five years. It is both pleasant to hold and to look at with the nickle silver bolsters and Henry Baer signature shield, stainless blades, brass liners and pins, all mounted in a bi-color stag appearing handle.

With the closing of Imperial Schrade, quite a few variations of handle colors and materials have been seen on the market. Many, such as the burgundy micarta, blue jigged bone, etc. were found among the stock carted off from the factory at the asset auction in October of 2004. My conjecture is that these knives were intended for 100th Anniversary editions, as several have been spotted with the anniversary etch and shield. A few of the earlier "Buckskin" knives, both completed and uncompleted have shown up. These sport a tan Delrin base material and light brown accent color as opposed to the more familiar cream Delrin base and coco brown accent color. Quite a few 897UH's have appeared with dark coco colored scales. The ones I have examined seem to be normal cream base knives that simply did not receive the final scale buffing that smoothed the high points and ends revealing the cream base and flushing the scales with the shield, bolsters and pins.

Limited editions and special private editions of the 897UH seem to be relatively rare. All of the scrimshaw special edition sets I have seen used the larger framed clip blade 885UH stockman as the base knife. The same goes for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation sets, and the Ducks Unlimited sets. One issue, the 95th Anniversary issue seems to be the diamond in the crown of special issues for the 897 pattern. Mounted on an engraved plexi pedestal on a round wooden base and enclosed with a clear glass dome, it is quite an impressive presentation. Bone handles, and a gold filled etched blade, sterling silver bolsters guild the lilly.

An 897 pattern was used on a Cigar Box Classics issue with red accented yellow bone handles and the classic arrowhead shield in place of the UH signature shield.

A "second cut" green bone stockman of this pattern with SCHRADE-WALDEN NY USA was produced.

This pattern was also used on a Orangewood handled Lewis and Clark anniversary edition. It had a bark canoe shaped shield, and came with a double picture of Lewis and Clark in miniature frame.

Recently, a few Ducks Unlimited editions have come on the market, but their embellishment seen so far is limited to a blade etch on production variety knives. Whether or not these were ever marketed, or were slated to be a 2004 release is a matter of conjecture at this point.

A set made for MATCO Tools in 1996 contained a 12UH Roadie, 285UH Pro Trapper, and 897UH Premium Signature Stockman in an attractive formed burgandy lined black leather grained gift box with Matco Tools, Schrade Cutlery logos and "1996 Uncle Henry Limited Edition Collector Series" in silver lettering on the cover. Matco Tools and the Matco eagle logo are etched on the clip blade of each knife.

It is no surprise, given the long association of Schrade with the retailing giant Sears, Roebuck & CO., that a contract stockman of the 897 pattern was produced for them. Only the shield and tangstamp changed from the regular production knives. These seem to be relatively uncommon on the market currently in any condition, and rare in mint state.

I have carried and used the 897UH knives for many years and I find no fault with them. I have never broken the delrin scales on one, though one or two had blade tips broken when a worker used them for screwdrivers or pryed with them. They are just the right size for pocket carry, an excellent compromise between the larger 885UH Senior, and the smaller 834 Rancher. The long nearly straight turkish clip blade is great for slicing, and the sheepfoot opens boxes and cuts tape well. The spey blade makes an excellent scraper to clean up cut pvc pipe or strip wire, and in a pinch makes a good skinner blade for small game.

I was dismayed when I found that Imperial Schrade had closed and would no longer be producing my favorite stockman, but thrilled to find the current glut on the market allowing me to buy all I could ever use and half or less of retail. The last listed MSRP of the 897UH was $39.45 in 2004, but I have found them new for ten dollars to twenty dollars, and the rarer new in the presentation box ones for under $40. Excellent used ones routinely fetch only ten or less, and while the supply will no doubt dry up before long, they are plentiful now. "

Thank you for the info, awesome.

I thought it was special, and have been drawn to the scales and three blade design.  With more posts discussing traditional folders, I thought it would be a good time to get acquainted with it, now to do some more clean up and improve the blade.

You're welcome Loop!  :cheers: :cheers: Lots of folks love the 897UH! I love it's beautiful Turkish Clip main blade!   :drool: :drool: :drool:  Will tote mine tomorrow if I can find what case it's in...otherwise I'd planned to carry my 885UH King Ranch.  :salute:

Stockman pattern, with staglon covers. Uncle Henry was a Very popular  low end series by Schrade. The newer ones are similar in look but not very well made. It must be ss.
Thank you
The main blade's edge appeared to have been felt by a file, we'll need to work the rough groves out of the edge. The other two blades took a edge very well. 
Was not aware of STAGLON until today.

Hope you can get it sorted out LC :tu: Good bit of into as well dks :like: I didn't know what staglon was either :D

Thanks!  Its on the #15 frame but I can't recall the exact model number/name.  This one is in ebony wood.  The #15 is just a perfect size for a pocket knife in my opinion.

used my bird knife to clean some game

I've only ever cleaned fish and fur, never fowl (I wouldn't know where to start). How well do those hooks work? How much of the entrails does it remove?
Title: Re: What Traditional Knife are you toting today?
Post by: dks on October 30, 2016, 01:42:47 PM
They work OK. You hook the rectum/intestine and pull, hard. The bigger the bird, the harder it is.

You can also just use a knife to open them and gut them, but I had to justify having the hook on the knife    :D

The feathers can be removed later, but the guts need to get out quickly, to stop the bird from smelling

Ponch, does your #31 have a sabre-ground blade?  The more I look at this pic, the more it looks like my #31SAB.  I'm wondering if they changed the pattern number in the '70s, as I believe yours is older than that.

Here's a pic of mine.  You can easily see the sabre profile here.  Actually, now that I compare the tangs, I don't believe yours has the flat section up top by the nail nick.  See how the flat section blends into the tang on mine?  That sucker is BEEFCAKE.:

Yes the blade shape looks to be exactly like yours except the bit that is by the nail nick :tu: This knife is from the 60s or before as well :cheers: I had most of that info found at one time (age and what all the numbers meant) for this knife but never wrote it down :facepalm: It looks to be the same knife as yours just older though :like:

Yours is older, but it's not the same.  I forgot that you stated in your challenge thread that yours had a "1/2" in the pattern number. That indicates that yours has a clip blade.  The sabre blade is different--it is full thickness to the midline of the blade, where it is ground thinner down toward the edge.  It is not something you want to slice cheese with, but you could use it as a crow bar in a pinch!

I know Robert has a #31 1/2 like yours, but with jigged scales.

As I have a different knife with me today I will try an get closer pics of the blade (closeup of blade and spine) this evening and put in here for comparison :tu:

Sure would be handy if we all could get together and compare those knives :D I am looking at a screen bigger than my phone now and my blade almost looks like a mix of both NutSAK and SAKGuys blade on those Case knives :think:

I agree, yours does seem in-between.

OK I got home and took some pics of different angles of this blade so let's see if it sheds any light on the matter or makes more questions :D

OK I got home and took some pics of different angles of this blade so let's see if it sheds any light on the matter or makes more questions :D



I'm thinking that it's a clip, but since the edge is worn back some, the thinning down of the blade profile makes it look similar to a sabre.  Whoever owned this knife has done a great job of maintaining it, actually, from how it appears to me.  It looks like, however, that yours doesn't thin down as quickly from the spine as Robert's does.  The difference between your blade profile and mine seems clearer to me than the difference between yours and Robert's, but it definitely looks convex, rather than flat.

A little nostalgia has kicked in today, so a 4" Queen #9 just seemed to fit the day.
The 3 7/8 & 4" stockmans were my main carry for many years from Case to Old Timer to Buck and finally Camillus. I don't carry it much these days, I seem to prefer something just a bit shorter now.

Any recommendations?

A well-made stockman is always a great place to start.  It gives you three blade types to help you decide what you like in a traditional folder.  I would suggest trying a smaller knife (under 4") before you try anything else.  Buy something basic and solid before you get into more exotic things, because you will likely buy more than one before you decide what you really like.  You might as well also try a carbon steel if you're not familiar with it, so that you can decide whether it is worth caring for or if you want to carry stainless for its lower maintenance requirements.

With that said, a Case CV stockman with Delrin handles would be a great first investment. Something like this maybe? https://www.amazon.com/Case-035-Yellow-Medium-Stockman/dp/B00002N6T5/ref=sr_1_2?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1478874164&sr=1-2&keywords=case+cv+stockman

Be aware that most traditional folders don't come really sharp out of the box, and will require will require some honing.

Good points Nutty.

Being a bit of a tool nut already I know some of what I want.

Looking for something small since i already carry a much larger Spyderco all the time.

Love me some patina. Like I want patina to be my baby momma love.

Want something pretty. Like me.

I need a trad in my life but there are to many great options.

Any recommendations?

A well-made stockman is always a great place to start.  It gives you three blade types to help you decide what you like in a traditional folder.  I would suggest trying a smaller knife (under 4") before you try anything else.  Buy something basic and solid before you get into more exotic things, because you will likely buy more than one before you decide what you really like.  You might as well also try a carbon steel if you're not familiar with it, so that you can decide whether it is worth caring for or if you want to carry stainless for its lower maintenance requirements.

With that said, a Case CV stockman with Delrin handles would be a great first investment. Something like this maybe? https://www.amazon.com/Case-035-Yellow-Medium-Stockman/dp/B00002N6T5/ref=sr_1_2?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1478874164&sr=1-2&keywords=case+cv+stockman

Be aware that most traditional folders don't come really sharp out of the box, and will require will require some honing.

Seconded.  A Stockman is definitely a great place to start.  I might be a little biased though, a medium Case CV Stockman is one of my favourites. :tu:

Personally, I don't tend to go for slippies with more than two blades. That said, Nutsak is right that a Stockman will give you exposure to different blade styles, so you can see what works best for you.

I have a small cheap Chinese made stockman that gets very little use, and a Boker Tree Brand Congress in a whittling set (with some Flexcut palm chisels) which doesn't get much use either. Aside from that, I think the only three blade knife I have is a Case Seahorse Whittler, and the coping and pen blades never get used.... the big Wharncliffe blade gets all the glory.

My favourites to use are single blade knives, and two blade Barlows..... but I went through a lot of different knives to discover what worked best for me.

Been a light day today. Aside from the usual neck lanyard and key carry, it's been the Sheepsfoot Duke and this small "Midnight Swirl" RR toothpick. It's really quite difficult to capture the pearlescent effect of the scales

Yes  :D It was a little project I did a while back. Just a standard blunt nosed DofE, marked out the tip with a coin, and then ground it. It's now a very frequent carry for me  :)

Trestle Pines Portage & Taylor 72OTB.
There's a cult of peanut lovers on another forum, so I got this little nut/dog leg to give one a try for a few weeks. I've looked at peanuts when out and about over the years and always put them back. For their size they cut & slice surprisingly well but as as only knife there ain't no way, at least not for me. A little more handle just feels better in hand.

Not walnut, it's old growth Ash. Reclaimed from the bottom of a lake or river in Northeastern Minnesota.

I've looked at peanuts when out and about over the years and always put them back. For their size they cut & slice surprisingly well but as as only knife there ain't no way, at least not for me. A little more handle just feels better in hand.  :)

You've made me feel like an enabler.  :ahhh  :rofl:

There used to be a lot of different handle materials available, Bolivian Rosewood, Circassian Walnut, Lacewood, & a couple Rosewoods but those were all sold out by the time I discovered the knife.

This knife ticks a lot of boxes for me, it's my only knife with an EO notch. I like how the nail nick is positioned over the EO notch. The drop point is a great all purpose blade shape & I really like 154CM. The length fits my watch pocket or front pocket & being a single blade it's light. It's been getting a lot of pocket time since I got it.

Yeah.  I wouldn't go so far as to call them flawless, but they are flippin' good.  When you factor in the price I'd call them some of the best deals to be had.

I've only seen one, belongs to my cousin, a Trapper and it was tight, smooth, razor sharp with handsome bone covers which were expertly fitted. Blades were centered and backsprings flush.....very impressive!

I've resisted buying any because Lord knows, I don't any more addictions.   :facepalm:
