It's no secret I've been steel spirit smitten this past year!  Well, this pocket knife has smitten mightily. 

I'm soooooo excited about this vintage knife I can barely type!!

I'm knot exactly why this simple, but splendid, single blade pocket knife catches my steel fancy, but it does.  Possibly because linerlock has foreshadow of tactical knives?  Maybe because the style is "gunstock"?   Maybe because it's those and handcrafted proudly in the USA? 

I carry it on my Ducks Unlimited (DU) Schrade sheath and it's just ohhhhh-lahhhhhhhhh-lahhhhhhh.

Obviously this is a previously experienced knife.  I won it in a "lot" of knives on eBay.  I'm soooooooooo happy this knife was looking for a KNEW friend 🙂
