Craftsman/Sears 95417 Stockman

I have been on a Craftsman jag lately, and wanted to get one of their clones of the Buck #303 Cadet, both being made by Camillus. This one is in good condition, just a few use scratches. Not sure of the kind of wood on the handles, but it is a hardwood. I compared it to a Camillus-made '72-'86 #303 Cadet. See any similarities? To me it's obvious, but I'll soon do a family photo of the few Craftsmans I have, in both Schrade and Camillus versions.…

National Knife Day

I read somewhere that today was national knife day, so that's

my excuse.

I was given this one by my brother-in-law.  He said he just came by

it somewhere.

And the wife gave me this one.…

Still here

 

   It's been a while since I've posted on this. So I figure its time for an update. Still kicking but not near as high, more heart issues. My Dr's have discovered a leaky heart valve.  As they stated nothing to worry about as its minor. However in my profesion as an Auto service tech for quite a number of years. When a problem is found it is usually recommended to fix it. A bad/leaky valve cause's a decrease in performance and other possible issues on an Auto and the Heart is you…

Finally a Buck Bone Toothpick and a Buck 300 Series SFO family portrait.

     Finally!! I've been looking for a Buck Bone version of this particular Buck SFO for years, and I was finally able to find and get one. The #333 California Toothpick in Genuine Jigged Bone handles, (Buck Bone). I found one a couple of years ago but couldn't afford it, so I just satisfied myself with the Stagalon version. After that I don't remember seeing a Buck Bone version for sale until just recently. Then all of a sudden this version is all over the place, so if you want one now is…

A Very Cool Colonial Stockman

Here is a very nice, seemingly brand new Colonial Stockman that I snagged on the bay. It looked interesting in the photos, so I decided to go ahead and bid. Surprisingly no one else bid on it, mine was the only bid so I got it for what I consider a very good price. When it arrived I was happily surprised at it's size, (4" closed), and it's pristine condition, it looks like it was never used at all, with nary a scratch on any blade or handles. The blades are tight as can be with no wiggle and…

Oops, I did it again!

Brittany Spears once sang, "Oops I did it again", and by golly I did exactly that! New Buck #112 w/ Drop Point blade & real ebony handles: https://www.buckknives.com/product/112-ranger-knife-drop-point/0112BRS1-B/

I intend to carry this knife, it will be a nice addition to my EDC rotation.

This is a new blade option and I like it. It's kind of a "finally"…

Did a little organizing!

On this 2020 Memorial Day weekend there is little else to do, so I decided to try and get all my knives into one room, I figured why have them if I'm going to keep them in a box in the closet. One of these days I want to get or make a few new display cases, more permanent ones made to fit the knives better, (like a store display-type box), but for now what I have will have to do. First is the big box which contains most of my Buck collection and includes every model number of the 300 Series…

This Craftsman is cool!

Well, I was gonna wait until another delivery happens to post here, but this one arrived first and I like it so much I thought I'd go ahead and post it today. Craftsman 95068 Stockman, similar size as a Buck #303 Cadet, (3 3/8" closed for the Buck, 3 1/2" for this Craftsman). I have been wanting a good one of these for awhile, and this one is in splendid condition, tight & sharp full blades, no wiggle, little to no usage visible, a good deep cleaning and…

This was worth the wait, my daughter gave me a special cane, and I found an oldie!

   Just received a 1967-1972 Buck #112 Ranger in pretty good condition. Nothing extra special about it other than those were my high school years, ('67-'71), and my first year in college, (1972). I have another version of this model, the #112 Slim Pro, which I have carried every day since I got it, so I wanted the "regular" version too because this is the perfect size knife to carry for every day use, (IMHO). It also came with the old style low hanging leather sheath, which…

Buying knives online in the UK.

For the past couple of years, I have only been buying razors, quite a few razors actually, and I have had no problem having these delivered in the mail. As I am now an impoverished pensioner I can't afford to collect knives and razors so I hadn't kept up with our new knife purchasing laws I had been aware that the legislation was changing of course but had let it slip from my mind.

This Summer I hope to be able to spend a good deal of time whittling in my shed or in the garden. My…

'72-'86 Buck #307 Wrangler in Yellow Sawcut Delrin

Here is something you don't see that often, a '72-'86 Buck #307 Wrangler in Yellow Sawcut Delrin made by Camillus for Buck. I've seen this handle color in post '86 Buck-made knives, but this is the first one of this color and vintage that I've seen for sale, so I couldn't resist, (I have seen other models of this era in Yellow Delrin but this was the first yellow #307 I've seen). I have Yellow Delrin knives of models #301, (post "86), #303, (also post '86), #332, #331 Barlows & #322…

Thrift store find!

Finally a new, (to me), knife to report, a genuine Camillus TL-29 found at one of my honey hole local thrift stores. Hardwood handle, stamped with the model number and in pretty good condition, (shown as found, uncleaned). Glad to be collecting again, at least for the time being.…

KnifeAddictsAnonymous KAA

I was thinking how tough it would  be to give up the use of a knife or reading about them, for even one day, I got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe if I develop a 10 step program, I will be able to bring my addiction under control. I need those who are not suffering too bad ( yet ) to make suggestions as to what those 10 steps might be. 

Disclaimer:

I take no responsibility for what may occur to others who choose to follow  the suggestions for a KAA program. And, I do…

The Top Five Boker Fixed Blade Knives! (Look! I made a Top Five list!)

The Top Five Boker Fixed Blade Knives

(Since 1955)

As you may already know, I am a fan of Boker knives. I am not so much a fan of “Top 5” or “Top 10” lists, but so many people are doing it, there must be something to it! I have limited this list to post-WW2 knives, because the pre-war knives are so difficult to find nowadays. All the knives in this list are still being produced by the Heinrich Boker Baumwerk in Solingen, Germany. So if…

Custom Knives by Alan Davis

Thought I would start a blog here to showcase the work of my favorite knifemaker.   I stumbled across Alan Davis, a knifemaker from Boerne, Texas, in late 2012.  I was blown away by his knife designs.  Even more astounding was the fact that they were virtually all one of a kind creations.  Alan didn't just make one or two patterns and then just outfit them with different materials.  Each and every one was pretty much different.  While he did have a few designs that people seemed to like and…

Razor sharpening .

A shortish blog on sharpening straight razors. It will be short because I know little enough , though I have learned enough to be able to get the job done . Maybe I can return to this in future when I have more information but for the present it will be brief .

1 . If you want to learn to shave using a straight razor the most effective way is to buy a new razor from a dealer who is known for sharpening their razors before sending them out . Buy a strop at the same time , not a…
