    What do you think about the quality of this knife, Gev? I've seen one before online, but never held or used one and have been curious about it. I like the pattern and looks of it very well.

    My goodness, our 2020 Forum knife is something else! Ram’s Horn!

    I only planned to keep one, but which one? Which one would you pick?

    The India Steel Works John Primble's were top quality, as is this one. The half stop is off on the main on this one, but otherwise it's a gem. Tight snappy with great fitment. YMMV.Maybe @waynorth has a few and opinion

    The few Primbles that are not subcontracts that I have managed to hang on to, are exceptional! Well made, both the German ones, and early USA ones!!:cool: Primble Eureka 1.jpg Primble Eureka 2.jpg Primble Eureka 3.jpg Primble Eureka 4.jpg Primble Eureka 5.jpg

    Very nice. Do the blades have a bit of snap to them? I've been thinking about getting one of those (I have the black one).

    Hi! It doesn't have a powerful snap like my older buck 300 series' knives but, acceptable...I also have a yellow 301 which is called a comfort craft due to it's slightly rounded bolsters and I guess the smooth blade actions and also a newer black sawcut derlin 301 and they both have a little more walk and talk and all 3 stay open firm, not lazy, but not really very snappy imo...I like them quite a bit and would buy them again
    Ps. The bolsters are very slightly rounded on the 303 as well and the wood is inscribed by Chuck Buck on the other side-cheers!

    Wow! You got a couple fine examples! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    If I were in your shoes, I’d keep the darker one. Those stripes on the mark side look great.
