I'm in VA today so I have to stick with a sub 3" knife. Mini Griptilian, custom blue/black G10 scales, titanium deep-carry clip.

Why 3"? The law only states 3" on school grounds.

Great looking ZT, Vemon. I liked my Model 301, that I purchased a second-one.

Hmmm. Must've read it wrong. Oh well, I rarely carry anything shorter than 3.5", so it's kind of a treat.

Nice Hobbs. Very nice. I was sporting my swindle and a Bertram hen and rooster burgundy coffin knife, circa early to mid 70's. I will post it up tomorrow.

I picked it up along with a 50's-60's ulster boys scout knife. I also snagged a tree brand green jigged bone barlow. The ulster and the barlow had some cosmetic issues but we're functionality sound and not abused. So they were cheap. A bit of love and I was able to get them into very servicable shape. Then topped them off with a couple of 22 degree primary bevels and 25 degree micro bevels.

Thank you sir !!! Sounds like you made some GREAT finds !!!

I'm blown away with the fit and finish on the Ben Hogan. It's as good or better than any GEC/Northfield/Tidioute I've handled. There is NO blade play what so ever opened or closed. All seams and transitions are spot on. I read one report of blade rapping on the back spring (non-lock back, different handle configuration) but I don't have that issue. This is a well made, substantially constructed 4 1/2" lock back folder. No half stop, very smooth walk and talk with "bank vault" lock up. Only 25 made at the time (2012) in this configuration.

I wanted a Ben Hogan lock back and searched EVERY authorized GEC dealer and this lock back made 01OCT12 was the ONLY Ben Hogan lock back listed on any dealer site. I figured being 3 years old, it must have been a return or something wrong with it ... BOY was I wrong !!! ... MAYBE ... it sat because no one wanted a #13 serial number, dunno. I think that just adds to it LOL.

I have a Tidioute #42 Indian Paint Brush jigged bone Missouri Trader lock back that will be here Tuesday ... and a Buck Chairman Series 301 Stockman is in route from KSF, who are currently relocating their business and I don't have shipping info on it yet.

The main blade was heavily pitted. It was quite unseemly. It had "official boy scouts of America" acid etched on it. Probably only at 30% with the pitting. I removed the pitting and what was left of the acid etch to make it serviceable again, not bad for a 30 dollar gamble. Someone also made a current out to open the awl on the back side. I do not remember any of my bsk having that easy open cut out. It was not very well done. That being said this is a 90% perfect serviceable knife. The rest may be only 50% cosmetic. Beats 100 + for a 90/90 knife.

The boker had similar pitting on the back side of the blade. Different from the scuffs on the front side. I hade been wanting a green jigged barlow for a long while. This gives me a knife I can use daily on my property with out much concern for the effect that will have on it.

The three together.


I have had a migraine all day, so I have been put zing around with my case.

Changed out the bottom shelf to include my meager coins, and pens


The 2nd shelf up, watches and pocket knives.


Third shelf up pocket knives.


Top shelf, autos and tactical pokers.


I love the NWJ, I wish I new a good source for them. I only have one sod buster, it is a very functional design. I think I should get more......

I have a new affinity for green bone as well. My Northwoods Green Bone Slim Jack is one of my favorites. Green was also by far, my dad's favorite color.
