I don't carry this German Boker often, but it always gets a comment when I do.

Best wishes,

Default Winchester Pocket Knife

Most cherished Knife I have.

Grandma showed me how to trap and shoot
Gophers.

Used the old Farm Behind the Door
Winchester 67 .22LR Single Shot Bolt Action
and the Winchester Knife to cut the Tails off.

Sorry no pretty knife pictures from this guy.

Enjoy and thank you for taking the time
to view.

Default pocket knives

Here are some various Case, a Buck, a "KENT", and on the right is a really good old 3 blade that was my Dad's - no brand name, just "Made in USA".

I have literally used that one old yellow Case almost to death and have carried all of them quite a lot, so they are definitely not pristine !

I call that yellow Case handle material "banana pudding yellow".

The old KENT is probably an inexpensive old knife, but has really cool handle material and nice, thin hollow ground blades that sharpen beautifully.

Have enjoyed this thread !

An older photo of my favorite daily pocketknife, a Case Baby Butterbean with red bone handle. This is the second one I've owned. Was eating a nice steak by the light a camp fire one evening, using the first red bone Baby Butterbean to cut the meat. Went missing after that occasion. Three months later I was poking around in the ashes of that campfire and discovered my lost pocketknife. I'd rolled up the paper plate after finishing the meal and tossed it on the fire with the little knife inside.

I frequently hear people, some of them here, decry the fact that men and boys no longer carry knives, while in "the good old days" all men and boys and many women and girls carried them.

I understand that dismay, and share it. I remember some years ago reading a news story about a woman who fell on an escalator and got her clothing caught in the machinery somehow. Horrified spectators tried to free her, but she was fatally strangled because not one person in the crowd had a knife.

But to a degree I understand why carrying knives is relatively rare, and it's not entirely a PC thing. We have made life too damn convenient and "advanced".

When did you last see someone sharpen a pencil with a knife, or even use a pencil? When did you last come home from the grocery with two kinds of unsliced cheese, and bacon and hamburger, wrapped in butcher paper tied with string? When did you last whittle a toothpick from a twig, or see old and some not so old guys sitting around and making fine wood shavings as they shot the bull about their "good old days"? How often do most most people buy bread that isn't sliced, or bake their own?

Too convenient, although the way some merchandise is bubble-packed today either demands a good sharp knife or bolt cutters. Too sanitary to have meat or cheese handled by humans and wrapped to order in paper. I have to admit that although I would never be without at least one pocketknife, my occasions to use one are fewer than they used to be.

I believe a great many people alive today, including many of my younger sister's Boomer generation, simply grew up not being taught the value and importance of a good knife on one's person. Certainly a lot of the next generation didn't pass the lesson along to their kids. No need, we're too advanced and sanitary.

Ah, progress.

The women are almost universally appreciative of the offer (no risk of breaking a nail I'm sure).

But I have yet to encounter one who has a pocket knife.

I carry a Swiss Army knives, but don't have any pictures of them.

An alarming number of the people, of the last couple of generations of people in the USA, conduct their lives, in the manner that you describe. I believe that their abilities, ambition, and desire to be self sufficient, or the lack thereof, are due to mommy, and daddy's loving words, "Mommy, and Daddy'l do it for you". I for one, pity them, and when the need comes, to provide for themselves, they are going to have a "hard row to hoe". You can bet your bottom dollar on it, the need will certainly come. It'll be scary, but, interesting to see those kiddies running our USA. It scares the "bejaybirds" out of me, just thinking about it. This wouldn't be a good time to go back to our roots, and replace some of the things that have been removed from our society, would it? Just my 2˘ worth. Pardon the rant.

If anyone asks if I have a knife I say, "It depends. What do you want to us it for?" If I don't like the answer, I don't have a knife.

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 model number is 887UH. I also have and used to carry the much larger, square-ended 885UH, but it tears up pockets quickly whereas the more rounded 887 doesn’t.

Those may be “recent” model numbers and there may have been earlier, different numbers for both of those knives. I don’t know about that. In any case, I liked both patterns and still have them somewhere, but the Victorinox Executive has taken over in my world since about 1972, if I recall correctly.

The little lock-blade I use now is made by Kershaw but I can’t recall its name. I see 1555TI on the blade and Hinderer Design. It’s a nice little knife for when one needs a sturdier blade. I also have and use one of the newer versions of the Victorinox Ranger, which has a locking blade, and I like a lot, but’s far too big for the pocket unless you are going to be doing something that makes you think you’ll need it.
