I would love to see a liner-lock in stag. #73’s and stag are a perfect pairing.
I'm going to go against the crowd. I came back around to traditionals because they generally have more than one blade and I don't need a lock. Were I looking to buy a single-blade locking folder, there are some really good knives out there in the modern world. Better steel, better locks, better materials, better construction, lighter weight, etc. If it's to be a Trapper, I prefer the traditional two-blade slipjoint design.
Just got a sneak peak of the Oregon Collectors knife... It's a 23 with 2 blades... Pretty big boy......
Where did you see it???
At the Oregon Collectors winter show in Eugene...
A stag #23 liner-lock and a stag #73 liner-lock
Stag is wonderful, but so is gnarly ram's horn. This #73 was made for Bulldog USA in 2009.
That double pull is amazing!!!...one of my knife regrets....I was offered one in a trade and passed it up...
Thanks. The double pull is nice but it’s the stamped blade that gets me. I sure wish they did more of them.
Ah!! That was/is today!!! You are lucky to be there!!! I wish . . . . . . .
Here is my Earliest #23; a big Remington-esque, Flush and Square, Nail-Breaker two-blade from 2007!
A Tidioute with a serial number!!
so you are saying that 2 days after I ordered a Case 2 blade Folding Hunter GEC has announced they are making a 2 blade Folding Hunter!
This is great news.......
Sorta. Folding hunters are generally 3/4" to 1" longer than the 23, and they don't have the spey blade, rather a drop point ... I need a sheath for a folding hunter. The 23 ... almost.
That pattern wouldn't be the same without that hard snap. I have a two blade user 73, the pulls are a solid 8 or so, it's a stout knife and I love it for that.
Let's hear it for Remington-grade SNAP!!!
P.S. locking knives usually have lighter snap!!
Excited about this! Love BIG traditionals...Scored a couple S&M Mountain Men this week
I'm surprised they were showing it off... Bill specifically told me not to let it out that it was 23s, but I guess that was a few weeks ago.
I sure wish it was a single blade!
The Allegheny Mountain Knife Collectors Association club knife will likely be a 23 from this run also.
I’m also hoping for a single blade or the trapper jack with the smaller pen blade, I personally don’t have much need for the large spey blade...not that it would stop me from grabbing one when offered.
Two blade #23? More money that will remain in my pocket.
