Send me a pic of the Trail Master with stag handles. Tell me what you want for it and we'll see what happens,
Thinking about thinning out the herd a bit.
Who would be interested in both of these COLD STEEL TRAIL MASTER model(s)?
I have two, both thirty plus years old.
TM #1 Looks to be a standard Trail Master, rubber handle, synthetic sheath, all original papers, label says:
MADE IN JAPAN
I've owned this knife for over thirty years...new in the box
TM #2 Looks to be a Trail Master, stag handle, leather sheath, knife has never been placed into sheath, all original papers, label says:
TRAIL MASTER - STAG
Opposite end label reads:
MADE IN USA
Can send pics of both if you are interested. Thanks
Ha - vindicated! Gotta love those double-headed coins! :-D
oops. You were right. the picture with the two kalinga folders and 2 fixed blades ARE Akonuas. The Kalinga fixed blade is next to the Talwar. You flipped the coin correctly.
Ahhh..so it is a Kalinga...I wasn't quite sure when I commented. I obviously spent too much time flipping that coin... :-D That's a great side x side comparison - gives some good scale as to the actual size of the Talwar.
I put the Talwar next to the full size Kalinga. It shows just how large the Talwar is. Holding the Talwar is such an awesome, and odd, experience. I can almost hold the Talwar with two hands on the handle!
That's a sweet pair of Buck Akonua's you there as well John. Your Talwar XL will look great among this group.
So what are the two folders?
John Smithers, That looks to be a Talwar XL -- nice choice for a first Cold Steel! People just tend not to appreciate the immense size of these knives until they finally hold one. Pretty cool. Enjoy it!
