Marlin Spike?
On a knife?

A thin, easy to pocket carry "Currey Lockspike Bo'sun". The marlin spike comes in handy for more than knots/rigging. Putting a vent hole in the top of a beer can, +1.

I've carried at least one knife every day for seventy-two years, and can't imagine being without one.

Almost all of the ones I've owned have been traditional slipjoint designs with carbon steel blades. There have been Case, Camillus, Moore Maker, Cold Steel's Country Classics in Carbon V, Buck, Queen City, Henckels, Böker, and lots of Schrade Old Timers. There have also been Victorinox Swiss Army knives and Opinels (carbon steel).

Over the years I've found myself more and more attached to the real, U.S.A.-made Schrades, and coming back to them. If I could only have one traditional pocketknife it would be the U.S. built Old Timer 8OT, the four-inch-closed stockman. I frequently carried the metal-scaled SAK that actually was issued to the Swiss army troops for a long time. That was for the tools, especially the fine awl, which I used a lot for scraping wire insulation, punching holes in leather, etc.

Now, with the hand problems I've so often mentioned on these pages, I have serious difficulty opening a slipjoint knife that has decent springs. For a long time I carried a SAK with a SOG Flash II assisted opener or, more often, a Spyderco Endura. I still carry the Endura frequently, but lately have dropped a Kershaw OSO Sweet assisted opener in a front pocket or clipped in a hip pocket.

Getting old and arthritic is a whippin', but thank goodness for one-hand-opening knives. They protect me from the unthinkable heresy of not carrying one I can use.

I have had one most of my life. My first was probably a Cub Scout pocket knife.
I even carried my pocket knife with me when I visited the Soviet Union in 1976.
I remember the very stoic customs officer asking me if I thought that I could kill someone with my pocket knife. I stumbled, and then he laughed and gave it back to me. I was 16, almost 17.
Old Hickory, Schrade, Case, Wegner, Victorinox. Now I carry a Spiderco folder and a Victorinox; one in each front pocket.
Truly my EDC.

I think that model is a medium serpentine stockman, but I don't recall the UH model number. I gave my late brother one just like it over thirty years ago, and he used it till he died. His son has it now.

I believe the Uncle Henry line was 440A steel, but well treated. I prefer the carbon steel Old Timers, but either of the ones made in this country was a heck of a bargain for the buck.

Guys, I'm pretty sure that this is one of the old, US made ones, I just snapped this picture...this is my most used blade, and it holds an edge very well...

The knife was given to me years ago by a family friend whose husband had passed away. She wanted me to have it as a keepsake. I have a couple others that she gave me as well, but the size and shape, and looks of this one just please me. And I have a bunch of others to pick from, including automatics (Benchmade and others), and case, ka-bar, boker, etc. I'll try to post some others later.

Here you go:



Best Regards, Les

Now this thread is rolling! There are too many great posts to single any one out, but suffice it to say, you folks have some super nice traditional pocketknives. I really like stag and found this set of case knives at the last gun show I went to. They are from 1981 with awesome stag and scrolled bolsters. I know many people collect red bone, green bone, and even Rogers bone Case knives. Looking for knives has made flea markets and garage sales interesting again. A few of you mentioned scout knives. These have also interested me lately. There are so many makers of them and seeing them brings back good memories. I have no idea were my scout knives are now, but I am on the lookout for some. One thing about them is usually when you find them, they are well used. Most weren't expensive knives when new anyway. Keep up the great posts and memories!

There are many crazy handle materials out there. Here is a picture of a knife that is not mine, but I saw in a local store. It has Ostrich handles!

This is my 2001 Gladstone Michigan made MSA Marbles Large Stockman. Only 50 ever produced in genuine Sambar Stag and it was really meant as a sought after collectible from the Marbles Custom Shop. Now that the Gladstone MI plant is long gone, the only Marbles knives available new are the cheap copies made in China after MSA sold out.

This has been my EDC pocket knife since 2001. I keep the Factory mirror polished Carbon Steel Blades razor sharp and do not hesitate to use it as any really high quality pocket knife should be used.

Two from Tim Britton, engraving and inlay by Jim Small. Smaller one is the “Gents Sliplock Folder” with 2.5” BG42 blade, larger one is the “Jade Handle Pronghorn” lockback with 3.5” S35VN blade.

I have 8 lockbacks. Nothing quite as traditional as the Buck. Left knife
in left photo. I've given them to family & friends. But I think my favorite
of the lockbacks is the Puma Prince 2nd from left in left photo.

And I have a few Autos, Assisted, and a Flipper, shown in the photo at
right. I think the Piranha at left is my favorite. Extremely sharp. But
it seems that I carry and use the Kershaw Junkyard Dog II, 6th from
left, the most. I like the flipper technology and the fact that it is ambi-
dexterous.

I have been carrying these since 1966. The mechanic was used daily while I was a Mercedes-Benz mechanic and up close and personal shows the wear of daily use over 30 years of wrenching. The aluminum scaled knife was my weekend warrior. They are now both retired (as am I) and I fondle them occasionally. They have served well.

I carry daily a small Buck 284 folder with the black handle. It's a modern day knife.
This last May at the 2018 NRA Convention in Dallas, I stopped at the BUCK both and chatted with his son who now is the CEO of Buck Knives.
I told him about his Father way back in the very early '60's,,who came out to the Airport and gave each one of us, MACV-SOG,who were departing to Viet Nam, the Cambodian Border, to eradicate the Viet Cong and to train the Hmong tribesmen to do so likewise in their tunnels.
Mr. Buck gave each one of us a Large folder knife, he had just started to make.
I still have mine in a knife drawer of a roll-away.
Stained with the price of Victory!
I take it out periodically, fondle it and put it back. Yes,,,,I remember using it, very clearly.
His Son,the now CEO,, engraved the blade of this small daily carry Buck 284 folder. Engraving says "C.Buck NRA 2018".

Hey, the VINTAGE Old Timer's were great knives! I've still got 2 or 3 and they are still quite serviceable. Back in the day they were very affordable and they were actually made quite well with good steel too! I also have a few Uncle Henry's but I think the OT's were actually better knives.

Thumbs up THE OLD TIMER TRAPPER/MUSKRAT???

If the trapper is the single bladed folder I'm thinking of. It had an easy to sharpen (as all the OT's did) blade and a nice pocket fitting shape & wt. Where they all went to??? Light fingered friends/siblings??? I couldn't possibly have lost that many, OR COULD I?

They made a single-blade trapper with a brass liner lock, as I recall, but much more common was the classic trapper design, with one clip point blade and one equally long spey blade. That one was 3 7/8" closed, and I always thought it felt better in my hand than any other pocketknife I owned.

Chief38, Marbles' decline began soon after the main man, Mike Stewart, left (not under happy circumstances,on his part). Mike now makes very good fixed-blade knives under his own brand, Bark River Knife & Tool.

I looked at a Smoky Mountain Knife Works catalog recently and was sickened to see cheap-looking imported knives with the Marbles tang stamp selling for nothing. The list included a "Survival Bowie" for $12.99, hideous orange-coated and weirdly-shaped machetes for fifteen bucks, and on and on.

I remember when Marbles knives and their safety ax were the kind that serious outdoorsmen sought when they wanted the best. This junk is just heartbreaking.

I'm sure you'll treasure your beautiful example of what they used to do.

Here's one that I'll bet no one else has!! I bought this little knife in Budapest, Hungary about fifteen years ago. I was shopping in an old, Soviet era facility...name escapes me right now. They had literally everything for sale there. Anyway, there was a guy there who made knives, and had a little shop and sales kiosk combined. You could watch him making the knives, and he would make one to your order... Really cool. Anyway, I bought this little guy, and I think, but can't remember...I believe that he had these little sheaths already made, but I think he made them also. I have carried this for several years, both loose in my pocket, and in the little belt sheath. Shown here with the knife I posted above for scale:



Best Regards, Les

Default 19-3 357 Mag and Schrade Cut Co.

This is a S&W 19-3 357 Mag, made in 1971 that I purchased from a FBI agent almost 20 years ago while working nights at a Circle K convenient store. He walked in, asked me what I carried and when I told him nothing, he about went crazy. He said they were going auto and wanted to know if I wanted to purchase his old revolver. I had no idea about guns and I called my soon to be wife for approval and when I said he wanted $150 for it, she said go ahead.
The knife is her grandfathers, one he carried all his life. He was an officer for L&N Railroad and she said he used it all the time. It has a broken second blade but I just left it that way. She said he said he got it in the 40's.

Here's a couple more... The four bladed Boker is a little on the large side for everyday jeans carry, and the two blade case is a little on the small side, but I have carried both of them at one time or another:

When I was a little tike, one of my chores was to find my grandpa and take him lunch at lunchtime. My grandma would pack his lunch in a milk bucket and I would stop by the spring house and fill a mason jar with cold water. He still plowed with a plow horse back then and he would take break for lunch and sit and tell me tales of the old times. When he finished I would gather up everything to take back to the house and he would get ready to plow. He always wore bib overalls and a long sleeve cotton shirt. In the chest pocket of his overalls was a full-sized Case Sodbuster. He would take it out, cut off a hunk of tobacco with it and go back to plowing. I always thought that as soon as I was old enough and had enough money I would buy me a Case Sodbuster. A couple years later when I was about ten, I bought my own.

That was over 50 years ago, and I have had a case in my pocket dang near every day since. My favorite is a Case Trapper or Canoe and I have 6-8 with different scales, along with a couple Sod Busters. I’ve been in police work for almost 35 years now and although I have a “tactical” Spyderco or Benchmade clipped in my uniform pants pocket, I also have a Trapper in my pocket for everyday use.

I’ve probably given away 30 Trappers over the years as I use them as thank you gifts when someone invites me to hunting camp or does something nice for me or my family. I’ve given a couple of Trappers to each of my boys but they aren’t impressed and never carry them. They are both into Benchmade automatics.

Once in a great while I carry both the Executive and a smallish lock-blade knife, but normally the larger knives are in the car or the truck where I can get to them, but not in my pocket. Oddly enough, I don’t have a picture handy that shows my Executive - sorry!

No worries! I have three Victorinox Executive knives in a nice wooden box on my dresser.

I know what they look like... and how handy they are!!

But my EDC is usually a Spartan. If I need a saw, I sub. a Camper or their large Hunter model goes in a coat pocket. I also have their former German Army model with a big saw and have German lockblade hunting knives with saw blades. Not that I use a saw a lot, but if it might be needed, I 'm ready!

I have a few stockman and trapper patterns, but whenever I carry one, I always need some tool that I'd have if I'd carried a Swiss Army knife!

I don't understand why many men now avoid pocket knives. I think we've bred a generation of PC wimps. I'd say what I feel is the core reason for this, but it'd get me banned here.

Check the front screw on your rear sight base. Looks loose. Tighten the screw, if so.

I have a small collection of pocket knives, some are novelty (Mickey Mouse, Elvis), none are valuable, but my EDC is a Swiss Army Tinker (I'm on my 3rd, have to give up the first at Seattle airport a few years ago, and my second at a Milwaukee Brewers game a few days ago; like someone posted above, if I'm wearing pants (or cargo shorts), I have my knife.

Wow great thread and pictures. I like some others here I am picture challenged. I like some others here lately have an addiction to classic knifes. Case peanut, mini stockman, muskrat. All are in my rotation. Gone back to classic lock blades too Buck,110 ,112. All in rotation too. Still like my assist but classic is and always will be classic.

Hi, Stranglehold:

The knife that you show in your post #91, the first picture, entitled Boar's Head, and Weidmannsheil on the blade, is a new one on me. It's a nice looking knife. what is the actual makers name? Care to share it with me?

Chubbo

I have many slip joint traditional folders, some older and some newer, and some larger and some smaller. Since this one is a lock back slip joint with a stainless steel blade, it's not as old or traditional as some, but it's one you don't see very often these days so I think it might be of interest here.

This is a Case knife with jigged bone scales. It is a large one, really not a pocket knife, but carries very nicely in a belt sheath. It is identified as a Case XX USA model 6165-L. A previous owner added the lanyard, which is basically a leather shoe lace that is captured by a neatly done piece of bronze that was either hex shaped to begin with or was a round rod that he made into a hex shape. There are two holes drilled through the slide, each hole off center to accept the leather shoe lace very snugly. As such, it will slide up or down but does not move without a bit of effort.

PS: Blade length is 4", OAL is 9 1/4". Blade width at widest point is 7/8".

Here's my Cub Scout knife by Imperial circa 1952. It's not concours quality, but not bad for sitting in a box for 60+ years. The pointy blade at the bottom of the photo is a leather punch. In my day, Cub Scouts were supposed to spend a lot of time crafting things out of leather.

I have a couple others that she gave me as well, but the size and shape, and looks of this one just please me. And I have a bunch of others to pick from, including automatics (Benchmade and others), and case, ka-bar, boker, etc. I'll try to post some others later.

Here you go:

Les-

That model was among the first advertised by Schrade as having Razor Blade Stainless steel blades.
It was carried by both Ken Warner and B.R. Hughes, famous knife writers. They could have probably carried any pocket knife they wanted, many being free or at deep discount to them.

I think that's also the model in Schrade's ads at, Playboy. I think they were the only knife manufacturer to advertise in that big, slick magazine. Playboy's circulation was then much greater, and I think an ad cost a lot. They wanted a model that would appeal to the educated urban buyer, not to Farmer Joe. That was the knife they chose.

I'd know the model number if I saw it. Check the blade tangs. The model may be marked on them.
The long Turkish Clip blade isn't typical of stockman patterns, but gets into tight places well. My father-in-law used his to fillet small panfish, like crappie and sand bass.

The Staglon handles were a form of DuPont Delrin, and look more like real stag than any other fakes I've seen. I have a King Ranch stockman and a small stockman with those handles.

The pointy blade is called an awl. The scout beer bottle opener can be called a bottle cap remover.
