    Any fans here? My main knife that I always have with me is a 2005 Bulldog brand saddlehorn trapper with celluloid faux turtle shell handle. I've had the knife since 2007. It is a quality piece.

    No camera (edit: found it), I tried with the lap top cam but, that was fruitless. Not sure if it is actual celluloid or acrylic. Can't find any other with style handles.

    I favor Boker (tree brand).
    My dad carried a big honker 4" Boker stockman every day of his life, or so I remember.
    Carbon steel. Not much stainless back then.

    That’s a nice large fine or jail sentence here in the UK. I’ve two lovely pocket knives one Swiss One German, both gifts, but they don’t get any just except occasional indoors.

    I have a small one with me pretty much all the time, but not concerned with where it came from or brand. Is it sharp enough to open the mail or cut a ZipTie? Then, it's good.

    Can’t recall having a bulldog brand knife, looks nice though!
    So many makers of fine steel cutting tools both old and new. I have some favorites in kitchen, utility, woodworking and gardening cutters choppers and loppers.
    Some of the vintage plastics are very cool too, and I do miss the era of high carbon steels.

    Have to wonder if SS replacing high carbon steel, allowing users to not have to take care of their stuff, is related to society viewing everything as disposable?

    Nobody here carries fixed blades- and the 'tactical' type are a rather camp invitation to be arrested and (if you're lucky) fined. Small, traditional, folding pocket knives are a lovely, practical link to childhood and an everyday cutting essential.
    The Solingen products are very similar, in design, to the Sheffield steel I prefer. Usually better finished, with identical quality metal- but twice the price. Here's my choice of the day.....

    After more research, I have found that the scales are a synthetic material and the color is called striped toffee.

    I know nothing about knives but I have carried this one for a very long time. It is stamped "frontier". That's all I know. It's 3" long when closed. IMG_6929.JPG IMG_6928.JPG IMG_6930.JPG
