Default Knife Display.............

Back in 1981 I broke my favorite knife while cleaning a mule deer in Utah, I have kept my eye out for a replacement for almost 4 decades.

Last week I was at the Ft Worth gun show and actually found it.......it was in nearly pristine condition!

Seeing that nice knives could be had I checked Ebay and found two matching knives in different sizes that are in great shape for being 30-40 years old. Got a little display put together tonight and am pleased with the results.

I love those old school lock-backs! I remember Pumas from the display cases at the local hardware store back in the 80's. They cost more than the Bucks and Old Timers I think. Now you need at least one more to carry and use every day.

I still have my old Buck 110 from high school. It weighs a ton, but I like drinking a beer and sharpening it or cutting something with it. The solid click that it makes takes me back.

Those Pumas are nice. Some of the old Stag handle ones can be worth some $$$.

That knife is up to almost $80 now and still has a day left. I bet it will go for $100 - $120ish.

I bought one of those Pumas from Bible Hardware in Abilene in the mid ‘80’s. Wished I still had it
