Got my stag one today. I like it. Wish it had a shield, that would have put it over the top.

The two blades are hitting the shelves. Looks like a rollout just like the one blade, starting w/ the Micarta ones first.

Very nice Stag on both of these Pembertons Ssk & Ajd.
I just picked up my smooth white bone Pemberton. Very nice but very small. I think of it as 'office workers EDC'. It would be a better knife with a clip blade.

Anyone receive a new 2-blade Pemberton yet? I'd like to know the lengths of the blades, and if possible, comparison pics. I'm curious how the sheepsfoot blade looks compared to say, the sheepsfoot on a Buck 303. And how the main spear compares to the pen blade on a 78 or 44.

Anyone have use experience with a small sheepsfoot like this one? How useful is such a small sheepsfoot, and do you find yourself reaching for it very often compared to a larger sheepsfoot?

Monk, from what I saw the sheepsfoot is 1.65 inches and the main blade is 2.25 inches in length. You are right, that is pretty small. But no smaller than most sheepsfoot blades on a small congress. I think that would be your comparison. I haven’t seen many sheepsfoot blades worn out on small congress knives, so I am guessing, it’s not all that useable or you would see a lot more wear on older ones that have been used. Of course, whittling and wood carving isn’t widely practiced so that may account for it too.

Me too. The 2016 run of #14's also had a swedged spear and I really like mine. I think a dark gray evenly forced patina would look great on the blades against the white bone. With a highly polished ribbon along the sharpened edge. If only it were a sheepsfoot main with a pen secondary! ::hmm::

CK had early reserves on that yesterday. Sorry. I posted earlier that it was out but it was just for reserve.

What a dandy knife this one is. Dandy was the word that came to mind when I opened it today. Smooth white bone 2 blade 06 Pemberton. My wife is coveting this one.

It does look 'dandy' ! I think it is a much better knife than the Wharncliffe single blade version, better looking and more useful.
You have a winner there Mark.

Thanks Roland. I like it better too. I just got an email from CK that the stag 2 blades will be posted tonight for those who reserved. So we shall see if the stag 2 blades are as nice as expected. I’m guessing they will be.
