Yeah, you might want to give it back to him before he gets fussy Joe. Don't worry, I'll deliver it for you :o

I am looking to trade for old bone or rough black cattle knives. Especially a schrade 856.

That looks to be a #46 "Whaler", 4 3/8" closed. Correcto ?
It is a very handsome knife, a bit like a Sumo wrestler in a tuxedo.

Here's my 46 from 2011. If these were dogs we might get some fine offspring.

Thanks for your comments,guys.
Good looking 46 kj.

I don't usually buy newer knives, but this big thing got my attention. And it's Northfieldish. ::super_happy::

I feel fortunate to have this big Whaler knife. To a knife lover it is an impressive example for our admiration.
I say "fortunate" because i doubt these very big knives will have another run. There is a lot of steel and big handle slabs are needed so my bet is there is less profit in these. The few i have seen get sold keep going higher in price.
I don't want to sell my ivory Whaler but it is one of my very few knives that might be worth more than what i paid.

I have a couple Whalers. Big ole knives. I also have this Bob Cargill Cripple Creek that is from 1980/81. Lots of similarities to the GEC Whaler. Maybe just a little bigger.

bkazz5, That Bob Cargill knife is quite the piece of hardware.
Very Impressive.

Is there a specific reason or purpose as to why this pattern is so wide?

Paul, my guess is the extra width facilitates chomping through rope and ..... Sale$?

Rope on sailing vessels can be 2" or more in diameter. The deep blade helps keep the spine exposed for hitting with the baton. Plus the blade is rather stout to keep it from deflecting off course; i.e. won't flex.
