I just put in an order for a Schrade stockman. It was only $11.95 plus s/h. Some days I don't have the big bucks, for something super nice, although I really wanna get a package in the mail.

Anybody else feel my pain, lol.

Geez Brian, you the only one home here. I kinda figured the whole Schrade thing would "scare" most knife folks away.

I half expected someone telling me not to waste my money.

At least you care enough to respond

I've been known to spend a few yuan to get a new delivery when money was tight.
My favorite so far is a Roper trapper in 1065, which cost me about the same as your stockman.
That particular steel - which I bought simply because an arrogant mod on another big knife forum claimed was totally unsuited to pocket kinves - takes on a really ugly patina.

OTOH, A.G. Russell has subsequently started selling these knives, and he says: " Made from tough 1065 Carbon Steel at 58-60 Rc., they will hold an edge longer and will be easier to re-sharpen, than modern day stainless steels. You can dig out your granddad's old Arkansas Stone and keep them sharp the old fashioned way."

That is a beautiful trapper ( my weakness, really ) !

Trappers are the ultimate for me. Very nice purchase!

Sometimes I just have to 'look' at something that peaks my interest, and cheap makes it easy to decide.

I recently bought these Rough Rider slip joints (Trapper and Muskrat). Some acquaintances who are more knowledgeable than I have said they are roughly on par with equivalent Case knives, especially for the price. I am pleased with them. The knife on the bottom is my excellent Case Medium Stockman.

I bought my girlfriend a purple Rough Rider trapper and , to me, it is no different from my Case trappers in quality preceived.

Thanks for sharing your collection!

Nope, I would rather wait for what I REALLY want, and not just buy something for the sake of buying something.
