I got tired of all the current/in fad single blade locking tactical tanto blade blah blah blah folding knives out there on the market now. I mean, how did our fathers/grandfathers/etc. ever make it through life without one of the current fancy knives?!?! Oh, that's right, they had basic solid slip joint folders like these. I've been on an odyssey away from the current folders - buying on purpose the 'old school' knives. Opinel No. 7, Buck Stockman, now this knife. I was starting out going to buy the rough rider standard barlow, but saw this baby instead. Simple, elegant looking knife. So, decided to give it a try. I saw Amazon sold two versions of this - one with rough cut brown scales, one with amber bone scales. I decided on the amber bone scales. I am soooo happy with this knife. The amber scales are really nice. Honey in color, they are ever so slightly textured, and with the depth of color, they have to be real and not plastic. This is a BIG knife - 5 inches long, 1 inch wide at the base, but only a little over 3/8 inch thick. Doesn't seem to way any more than my large Stockman knife. It has become my EDC. I'm a small guy, but I carry it in my front jeans pocket every day. To big for your front pocket you say? Man up - move that fancy smartphone to the back pocket, carry the knife up front. Can't believe this thing was only $12 ish dollars. Solid construction, super solid back spring (with half stop), deep finger knick/groove for opening. Blade is nice, large, and very sharp. No complaints at all - would definitely buy this again and recommend to others. Love, love this knife
