Welcome Home

I started collecting Westerns for 2 reasons:
1)I love Colorado history..I thought it was cool to have a knife with BOULDER, CO stamped on it
2)When I was about 14, I lost a knife my dad let me borrow on my ranch property in Colorado....It was a Western L66..It's still out there to this day ..I think..I was gonna buy a metal detector and try and find it..I know where abouts I lost it...Well..within a 100 yd radius anyways..unless it is disintegrated by now...heheheh

My favorite knife is the Western F39

Because to me it is beautiful :)
Western Boulder, CO F39 Black Beauty

I have most of these models in my collection
The sheaths are a different story :(
They are kinda hard to come by
Western Beauty

My fav knife, with a personal story, is my Dad's Schrade
The Old Man's Old Timer

I found it, and some other knives, at my mom's house about 3 years ago. It had been sitting for 15 years, in drawer!! Those knives are what really got me into knife COLLECTING (and knife history)
I also found my dad's hatchet.
So this is my favorite HATCHET :)

I have more to the story, the mayor was a generous man, he built the city parks and gave samples of "Apple Pie" to travellers, in talking to a waitress in the diner, she told me that the cast of the tv show "Justified" visited the town before making the series. The mayor gave them a sample of his "Apple Pie" but asked them not to make it look bad

Sounds like he was a good mayor and a good man.

Today I would have to say Buck is my favorite knife company, (tomorrow it might be Case), and I have more Bucks than any other brand. I'm currently trying to collect one of each of the Camills-made 300 series Bucks. I have lots of other various knives, slip joint and fixed blade both new & vintage, but when I find a vintage Buck it always makes my day.

Though I have a rotating gaggle of EDC "favorites", and carry two or three knives on me every day, most often I always have at least one Buck with me too. Lately it's been either a 1970's 307, or a 301 of the same era, (both Stockman frames, both in their own belt sheaths), and I also like my 311 Slimline Trapper a lot. Y'all know what those look like, so I'll dispense with the seemingly obligatory photo(s), and let you use your imagination, but I gotta say Buck is my favorite brand of ALL my favorites.
