Been busy but am carrying my Pemberton daily.  That said I picked up 3 trads.  Probably best to say I saved them from more grinder sharpening. 

I got a Camillus Sportsman Knife.  Its a neat trapper on a bit of a different frame.  I thought it was a Copperhead frame but its not as compared to my BuckCreek. 

I also got a Boker USA.  Its a size I really like.  Different sellers so no grinder damage.  I thought it was a Boker since it was missing the shield ( circle ). 

Once I clean up the other one I'll post it up.   

Good scores!   :tu:

Is this rated traditional?

I am now a confirmed WWII Camillus single coping blade, swayback Coast Guard knife guy. It is now always with me, same as my Cybertool. 

I have never had a knife pattern feel so right in my hand.

I would like it in a modern flipper, but all I can find is these big,clumsy cleavers, or razors that are too short, or lack the swayback.

A 3.5” coping blade is the perfect work blade for me. It’s a rope knife. It’s meant to be pulled up and sliced through spiral sisal rope, but that motion is good for cutting open anything you pull on to tension and swipe at. The unsharpened blunt tip makes me realize how rarely I need a pointed blade. I don’t even like my pruning blade any more and all these nursery tips just seem to be in the way for most work cuts, unless your work is poking holes in persons. U A coping blade is truly liberating. Because you can’t stick yourself, you just dive in and grab things with one hand and give the long low profile a drag and a pull, and voila! The thing you are cutting is open. And the sway back form makes the motion feel controlled and easy.

2015 Buck 301 Stockman; rosewood/brass. I wanted an affordable Stockman that was modern production, and USA-made. I just bought it a few days ago off a member of another forum for $15. American-made Camillus and Schrade (and even Utica and Colonial) are getting harder and harder to find at affordable prices. I wanted an affordable, American made Stockman that I would not be afraid to use. I set a very strict limit--$20, in decent shape, current production, and non-synthetic handles.   I like Case, but they tend to be a bit expensive for my tastes. I already have a really beat-up 3318CV I was given, but I am hoping I can find a decent 47 or 75 Stockman in CV and bone in used condition, and cheap. Utica no longer makes an own-brand Stockman; and older Delrin versions are somewhat rough in the quality department. Plus, they really don't have the same warranty as Case or Buck.

The one thing that bugs me about modern 301s is the incredibly soft springs. I have a like-new 1992 301 (which was a gift to employees of a local quarry, which means I don't use it), and that thing's a bear trap. I passed on buying a new 301 at my local knife store the minute I saw how weak the springs were. As for this knife, the blades have been sharpened on a belt sander, and the master blade has a tiny bit of wobble.

Good old Case medium Stockman has been getting carried for the last few day.
