Did the circa 1978 to 1984 Old Timer 858/858OT Lumberjack Stockman have pinned construction or the Swinden Key?
I don't understand why it wasn't a more popular model.
At only 4 5/8 /4.625 inch closed, it's not "too big" and not "too small" for loose in the bottom of the pocket carry. The "perfect" EDC stockman.
Can't speak about the construction of the 858, but I agree about your statement on it being the perfect EDC stockman. I've taken to carrying large (over 4 inch) stockman knives lately, and they're great for me, but hard to come by.
