...been looking at the Bay for all kinds of Classics with interesting scales...maybe.
I'm thinking about collecting the Classics too Tony. The nice thing is that there's no shortage of interesting ones! I've also renewed my love of the Minichamp. Folder Beholder has a beautiful collection of them.
That is one big rabbit hole to go down.. There must be a billion choices!!!
I have a minichamp on deck for when I have a few more gray hairs and a lot more wisdom. It's not quite what I need at the moment.
Only a billon?I think your on the conservative side a bit.
...if only the Classic had the nail file like the Executive instead of that odd 'sand paper' or whatever you call it....
I was able to switch the spring from the blue unmodified knife to the brass one, I don't know if the folded spring is representative of how it would have looked from the factory but it works. The more modern folded springs are a bit bigger at the fold but can be made to fit with a few light taps with a hammer to compress the fold. The flip side of this is that it alters the width of the spring but that seems to be possible to fix with some careful bending. Now I'm the happy owner of a nice looking knife that mixes the size of the Classic with the file of the Executive.
This is my favorite 58mm scale. I have made the decision to put it, along with my ATOM A0 Ti with red led, together on a ball chain.
Thanks. When I saw it I had to have it. Collecting interesting 58s will be fun. Do you have any minicamps yet? I cant remember
Here's mine! I hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail armed only with this guy.
Thanks 39! Carl, you're right! I'm looking forward to doing a Yeager hike with the Executive. My favorite blade on it is the smaller 58mm. They're beyond Opinel sharp!
...wow the AT with a Classic or 58mm SAK, you guys are good! I was thinking more Kbar lol
