Title: The Whittler Patterns
Post by: SteveC on May 03, 2018, 08:00:20 PM
I've fairly recently come to appreciate the Whittlers and their different patterns.


Let's see your Whittlers    :tu:

Reason for the name is the main blade uses both backsprings.

I have to say that is a pattern I've ignored but I don't know why. It's not that removed from a stockman and I carried one of those for years.  :like: that Splitback.

A long line tang stamp with no pins except the center pin on the derlin covers. Must be a transitional 72. I got it dirt cheap a while back and have been working on its spring blade fit. Which a lot of later Camillus and Schrade knives seem to have.

Beautiful stuff!

Below are the only two whittlers in my collection.  I've always admired the pattern, but somehow I've found them fairly hard to come by.

Canal Street Cannitler (canoe & whittler) in D2 and GEC Northfield Conductor w/Gabon Ebony Scales:

Sure enough, under the name Canal Street Cutlery Co-op.  I'm glad you said something.  I wasn't aware.

"These are small batch runs of a high quality, better made knives than any other American company.” Wally Gardiner, Founder of CSC, and his group of less than 10 cutlers are making each knife to lofty standards, at a methodical pace, turning out only 4 – 6 knives a day."

That sounds promising, but probably expensive.

Some more Camillus 72. Rare Black bone from the 90's. It looks more dark brown than black since its seen some pocket time. Next one is a early delrin with pinned covers. Last one is a early long line with black composite covers.
The blade still has the deep clip point of the early ones.

An early repaired knife by Charles Langbein using Henckels and I*XL blades. He was an importer and knife repairman in the early 1900's.
Henry Sears 1865 with three backsprings.With the punch blade it should probably be called a harness jack.

Post by: NutSAK on October 24, 2018, 10:14:23 PM
I've said the same thing in the past about a few Case patterns and I frequently carry patterns in CV. Recently though I've come to realize that there is little difference in performance between Case CV and SS.  I still prefer CV but I no longer let it bother me to the point where I won't buy patterns that are only offered in SS.  I now have a few patterns in SS that I carry and I really like them.

It does seem like they should always offer CV in whittler patterns though, since it is one function of a pocketknife that most requires a very sharp, long-lasting edge.

I have some stainless case’s that I enjoy too, and the steel is comparable, but the CV is still better. Also, stainless blades don’t speak to me the way carbon ones do. I guess you could call that personal preference.

That is my personal preference as well.  It's not only more traditional, but it seems like more of a "living" thing with a constantly changing patina.  It's just that there are a few patterns that I like well enough that they trump my desire to have CV.  The Seahorse is one of those.

I guess I am at the point where I won’t buy a knife I wish I could because it is not cv. The two I really want are the small stockman and seahorse.
