    Anyone else renewing their collection of the trusty 3-bladed Stockman folders, 2-blade Peanut, etc?

    It started when I found an old Buck Large Stockman I'd set aside ... and then an older Shrade, in the bottom of an old toolbox ...

    Then, the next thing I knew, I was browsing a couple of my normal websites looking at new ones, especially those by Case ...

    Now, I have 2 new ones and another on the way ... and I'm still looking at more. :shocked:

    I've found these small, medium & large 2 & 3 blade folding knives have replaced my SAK's ... and now I'm looking at 4-bladed Congress, Muskrat, Trappers, etc.

    Great. Full circle ... just as I'm turning 60.

    I thought all the new lockblades I'[ve been buying were going to be my latest (recurrent) vice. :whistling:

    I have always been a 'trapper' design guy but lately I have been remembering my Grandfather and his Stockman and I have picked up a few.

    I am really getting good use out of one of the least expensive knives I own and it happens to be a "stockman" of sorts. It came from the SMKW "Rough Rider" line. It is a 3 5/8" (or 7/8) jigged bone handle with the two short blades (Spey and clip) on one end and the master blade on the other. They do this because the master is lockback. I have several of the RR line and I must say they have a very decent steel in them especially for the price. It is kind of nice to have a lockback on the small knife I carry for the jobs and circumstances that don't need my Kershaw whirlwind.

    Thanks. I do enjoy looking through catalogs. Reminds me when I was little and used to spend hours going through the dept store catalogs.

    Got a bone handled 3 blade and is my EDC. I also carry a Buck110, on the belt for bigger jobs. The Stockman does a big job of cutting an apple, opening a bag of candy or chips.
    Cuts loose strings, nylon strings, even a crispy salad on occasion, at work.
    The Buck is a great tool for skinning deer, or protection. My 2 sons saved up some money and bought the 3 blade for Fathers Day. Made by Bear and Sons, holds a great edge on all the blades.
