Title says "traditionals"
I'm sure many would appreciate you switching that top one. Thanks.
The following are my top five for the next hour
I struggled with this a bit. Every day at home: Buck 112FG and Vic Fieldmaster. Away from home, might be a Buck 532 Bucklock, but that might be replaced with a Case Tribal Lock or a Case Wharncliffe Copperlock (any of those in a Buck 112 polyester sheath), plus definitely a Vic Minichamp. Also away from home, might be a Case Swayback, but could be a Teardrop, small Stockman, Texas Jack, Peanut, Tiny Trapper, etc. So, I typically have five "in rotation," but not a true top five.
Or until you change your mind... whichever comes first.
Nice group by the way.
Here's five patterns that get the most carry time ....
Top left corner, what pattern is that?
That's just a Case mini-trapper that I cobbed the clip blade into a wharncliffe (the nail nick location sets up really good for that mod) - here's a better picture ...
Bottom left... A Trapper with a Sheepsfoot???
That Buck 532 is one sweet looking knife. Very classy!
Yeah - that's another mod (for what I do with a knife, seems I have to have either a sheepsfoot or a wharnie) - tough part is I had to cut a nail nick ... came out fair with a drill press and a dremel grinding wheel - not easy to do nicely without specialized metalworking equipment. Does the job though ...
That’s the nicest nail nick I’ve seen someone try to add. Looks good!
Thanks Sacto !
Here is a pic of by far my most carried knives. Even though I still continue to acquire new models I do not see them bumping these out of the rotation. I currently only have five of these left since my TC went missing late last year after a day of yard work so I figure these are my 5 until I find it back (I'm still looking ). I like to have a variety of handle materials to choose from usually to pair up with a modern folder :
I hope you find that TC Barlow again... it's super nice.
Thanks!! It's out there somewhere. I've not given up yet. Fortunately I do have some other #15's to fill the void.
These five have been getting the most pocket time lately
shame ... would almost be worth buying a cheap metal detector to find it before you hit it with the lawnmower
That is a very nice line up you have there.
My bad. Pearl that is a very nice line up.
