Traditionalpocketknives had some nice ones imo. As I am not a stockman collector I will sit this pattern out. Maybe get my cc caught up!

Just checked to see if they sold out yet and yes KSF shows out of stock already. CK only has these on there for people who signed up for early reserve.
This one is hot!

So CK has given out their allotment of theirs to the early reserve folks already?

As of 6:19am Wednesday morning Ck still has 10 knives in their protected category if none of the notified people take them by this afternoon I guess they will be available to the next 10 standbys.

Well I said earlier that the Dixie wasn't for me but I was looking through the stag that were available at a few of the distributors ::facepalm:: and ran across one I couldn't live without. So It's headed this way. I have become highly addicted to stockman of all varieties, plus who knows when the next run would be.

Most of the dealers I checked have several stag still in stock and there are imo a few jewels among them but you have to wade through alot to find one.

Trace, I had a feeling you would come around. There are some stag handles on these that are not very attractive, but there are some real beauties in there too, well worth having. I share your enthusiasm for stockmans. Sowbellies are my favorite.

Well I got my stag 82 today and I am so glad I got the stag too. As you can see from the last photo, the bone is pretty nice too and together they make a pretty picture.

Have picked up 3 so far, micarta, bone and stag, quality of all 3 is excellent, no blade rub on any of them and finished to a high level of quality. I'm another one who wishes they would put shields back on the stag knives.
