Hello Ladies & Gentlemen, This is my first post in the traditionals forum, so if i do anything wrong, please be nice. I’m willing to change. Lol. I was given my father’s lockback a few years back as some of you may know, and it kindled a fire for searching out traditional lockback knives. Lockbacks have been my favorite locking system for a long time, i just tended toward more modern pieces. But...there is nothing more beautiful than a traditional lockback...dressed in exquisite burl or bone. The craftsmanship is a thing of beauty. The simplicity is what draws me to them. Solid lockup, and well, ready for any cutting task. I do have a few slippies as well, but lockbacks are what draws me to collect traditionals. Below is a couple photos of my slippies and lockbacks...all traditional in style (i believe). Im curious to be made aware of the makers and companies that sell traditional lockbacks. Thanks guys! Enjoy! Pics of other traditional lockbacks are welcome here! Keep ‘em Sharp!
