"Tim, Thanks for the comment. The Mountain man Express is the 4.5" size and came after the John Henry Express, but used the same switchblade opening lock. It was generally quicker to open and easier to carry. More popular and around 96 different…"

"Billy Oneale and Bob Welch. Thank you for your interest and comment on these recent posts. We think it was a critical time!  50 -40 years ago makes it fair game for "history" "

Welcome, Dan!  Out of sheer curiosity, to which knife publication(s) do you subscribe?  It feels like those of us with knife magazine subscriptions are rare -- even here! 

And while I don't know much about Queen knives, I really fell for the Mountain Man & other similar knives (single blade lockback (trapper?) with a straight clip point (vs the curved clip as on the Buck 110 & similar knives)).

All that said, again, welcome!!
