Stumbled in and thought I would post a picture or two of some of my stockman.
First is a locking Camillus stockman.

Next is an old Western.

Next is a Puma I bought almost 40 years ago and have never talked myself into using.

And one more a Moore Maker.

Yes, i selected the pic of Folding Hunter because the India Stag on it looks similar to the real stag on the SCC stockman. Actually i found almost no other pics of India Stag in the Camillus forum. I have seen some Camillus with India Stag even more convincing than that on the F.H. knife. I used to have a few examples but have sold them so had to look around for a picture to show what i was talking about and that it is different from Schrade "Staglon".

Runted, some excellent examples of reasonably recent stockman knives. The Puma is a beauty. Seems a shame to not carry it and make it your companion.

I have looked thru my knives and I these are some of the oldest I have. Way down here in Mississippi we don't run up
on some of the brands that other people find. And the ones I run up on are usually used up.
The first one is stamped B. Svoboda.

Then I have this Frontier that belonged to my father-in-law.
