Interesting blade shape. What is it used for?

I would call it a modified sheepfoot blade as the tip goes up ever so slightly. I think it is an awesome blade shape for an everyday utility knife. The lack of a "menacing" tip makes it hard to stab or pierce yourself (poking your finger for example). As such it is also used as a rescue blade.

I also use it as a scraper if i don't have one at hand. It is not as good for food though, as you have to have the blade relatively flat against the material in order to slice it.

Today was vintage day.

Camillus Sway Back with 3.5” Coping Blade aka rope knife aka Coast Guard Knife

Western 901 Camper (Boulder, CO range stamp)—4 tools; all long pulls!

And check out the width of the center brass layer on the Western—holy cow! Having spent much of my adult life in the American West, old Western knives have a special appeal to me. Before there was Spyderco in Boulder, there was Western. I forget the details of the Western story now, but the company was started by knife manufacturers “back East” that moved out to Colorado to make knive the east coast way in order to serve the growing western half of USA. Western knives are thus an interesting mixture of late 19th/early 20th Century knife making that many rightly venerate, but with a certain subtle Wild West rusticness that some mistake for crudeness. I can see in Westerns their origins in the East that resisted becoming too civilized and perfect in their manufacture. A Western knife looks like a man made it. There are imperfections of milling you don’t find in some of the best eastern made knives. Westerns are to pocket knives what the old US National Park lodges are to architecture—intentionally rugged and coarse. When you see a lodge at Yellowstone, or Crater Lake, or Yosemite, it looks a part of nature. It does not look perfectly rationalized like a Mies Van der Rohe high rise in mid town Manhattan. But the national park lodge is not carelessly crude. It is well thought out and built of materials that seem to come from nearby. Old Western knives from Boulder are like that.

Old Westerns aren’t for everyone. Neither is national park architecture. But there is no knife I would rather wake up with in a western camp ground in a national park with than a Western. Oh my god do they look and feel right to me waking up and walking out of the lodge on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, or crawling out of a sleeping bag under Half Dome, or crossing the continental divide in Rocky Mountain National Park. A Miller Brothers looks and feels right on a winter day in Connecticut, or the Finger Lakes, or New Hampshire. But waking up on Grand Mesa to trout fish the  Western slope of Colorado, give me a Western.

P.S.: And when I turn the Camper sideways, I look at the profile of this Western Camper with all the long pulls peaking above the scales, that profile reminds me of a mountainous horizon in abstraction. I know, all Campers with long pulls look this way, because the pattern is used by many manufacturers East and West. I reckon if I had spent my life in the East I would see the Blue Ridge Mountains in those blade profiles peaking out above the rustic scale. But I spent my life in the mountain west...and so that’s what I see.

The Big Rock Candy Mountains!

Look what I found at the gun show.....

Buck Scoutlite 412.

I'm checking if my cousins who were in Scouts in the 80s want to buy it.


This life is merely a staging ground for eternity. Are you preparing for the rest of forever?
