These Westerns are all similar. I think they are a great knife. Great pattern design.

Stan, it's nice to see you back with us. Who put those funny numbers on that beautiful ruler?

nice one stan, i had one just like it.
i did not have a sheath, though,
so i traded it for something more
pocket friendly. in fact i am carrying
the knife i traded for right now!!!
it was a great knife, just never could
warm up to it. if you like mid-sized
lockbacks, you can't go wrong with one of these

The 532 and 533 are 1980's and 1990's remakes of the old Western States Cutlery 5230 (old 30). 4 1/2" closed, this is an exclusive Western States Cutlery pattern. I don't think anyone else copied it. This is not my knife, wish it was. I've seen them handled in bone, stag, and cell.

Image

I would consider them stout. Western first produced these in 1928.

Image

They came out with the 5 1/4" clasp pattern (old 27 and 062), along with a single blade 5 1/4" coke bottle at about the same time frame.

Wow thawk those are beautiful. I have took a liking to Westerns. So much so I am like that AT&T commercial with the little girl. ::ds:: She is sitting at the table and says if you like it you want more. I like it I want more, I want more. lol I bought my first on ebay for couple dollars with broke handle and I love packing it. I forgot to take a picture of a folding hunter. I will post it later. The trapper, I bought from muskrat man, is as sharp has a razor. I have sliced my finger twice wiping it off with a rag.
