Here is the three-blade, opened!!
That sure is gorgeous. What unique combination of blades for that pattern. I think you’re right about the bellied nature of the pattern restricting some blade geometries. This has been a point I’ve been ruminating on and making some drawings of here and there at work during exceptionally long and impertinent meetings.
well stated; if my meetings weren’t Friday at lunch, and didn’t involve beer, I’d borrow that one. I am amongst the most anti-meeting people out there. I am however, pro-(easy pocket) congress.
stags flew right off the shelves, the quick and the dead..
Got my stags! I was cruising vendor sites, stumbled on the stags (in glorious individual front, back and top view photos) and had my order placed before the announcement email went out. I have to applaud the individual photos because they enable me to buy the knives with the individual stag covers that I wanted. I now have a couple (at least IMO) beautiful stag 62’s on their way to me.
Looked like some nice stag, a person still has to choose relatively quick. I was able to grab this one.
That feature does ease the fear of what you might get when you order.
Snagged a pretty nice one,
Yep. In fact, they called it the Maverick Stockman. I still don't know whether that straight-edged blade should be called a wharnfoot or a sheepscliffe.
I was just wondering the same thing myself!
It is sort of "in-between"! I'd call it a sheepfoot with the corner round off somewhat!
I scored #26:
I just spotted three Sambar Stag #62s ! Keep searching they are out there. "ALL GONE !" The fat sambar stag scales don't look right at all on the Congress model. I'll have to pass on this one. Phat stag holds easier between my knees/thighs for easier opening.
Fresh from the mailbox! I held out on this model to only get a stag. It was a luck of the draw situation, butI really like the one I got. Nice thin matching stag on both sides, spring sits flat when closed, at half stop, and when open, nice firm pull to open, blades not rubbing, and very sharp. I am extremely pleased all around on this #62 model. Good luck to everyone else getting one.
Nice one there! That was really fast, how did you manage that?
my vote is squarely in the wharnecliffe camp. Sheepsfoot (feet) to me have a distinctive hard angle that runs uninterrupted to the point. Anything that soft and rounded just screams “wharnecliffe”.
Didn’t realize the stag had dropped. Are they gone for good now or are any other dealers getting them this week? Was hoping to snag one, but work kept me busy today.
They just got started on the first batch. Keep your eye out and keep trying. GEC will be pumping them out to dealers at least another week.
That is EXACTLY how I would like my stag to look, if I was to try to get one. That is really nice.... just enough "rough" to be stag, but smooth enough to "work" on this slim knife. Beautifully done.
I am lucky enough to live very close to my dealer and he mails them Priority Mail.
