You *had* to get the set. I'm glad I don't have such a compulsive urge to buy knives! Must be a terrible affliction. ::teary_eyes::

So here's my contribution to the Pemberton photo roundup. I really like this little knife! The jigging is smooth to the touch, no cheese grater feel here.

Here's a comparison of smalls, the Pemberton next to a Case Peanut. Nearly the same size and blade lengths. The Peanut gave me an appreciation for small pocket knives, which set me up for the Pemberton.

Now for a comparison of the #6 main spear with a #14 spear and a #78 pen blade, just for fun:

Finally, here's a large, medium, and tiny sheepsfoot comparison:

Does anyone know the historical reason for having a tiny sheepsfoot on a pocketknife, or what it was classically used for?

Lee, I think that is a blade made for whittling. Nice side by sides. My Pemberton’s seem bigger than a peanut but after seeing your photo’s I realize that it isn’t. It must be the blade width that makes it seem that way.

Thanks! Yes, the Peanut is a slimmer knife with a narrower blade so I'd say the Pemberton is more knife even though frame and blade lengths are the same as a Peanut. I thought I was tired of spear blades but I see this little Pem spear kind of like a broad pen blade. I like it even more than I thought I would.

Glad you liked it! Oddly enough, I still don't think I have the "right" sheepsfoot for every occasion. I just don't like to carry a stockman all the time, there's something about each of the frame shapes I have that I don't like. Hopefully GEC will make more small frame sheepsfoot knives soon. Like another 14 or 15 with sheepsfoot main. I know lots were made in the past and people are probably tired of them, but I missed out on those runs.

I have to say, I'm not too pleased with mine. I bought the 06 Blue handle with the two blades with the Tidioute shield. I failed to look at the size before I purchased and have no one to blame but myself. I think the quality is nice but certainly should be considering the price for such a small knife. I'll throw it in the collection but I'm not impressed.

JSR Sports & More has a fresh batch of #06 Pemberton knives . These #06 knives are left overs from Rendezvous 2019. I bought an #06 Pemberton white bone wharncliffe single blade. JSR Sports & More has 6 different #06 Pemberton knives to choose from at the original low release date price. I missed the white bone #06, but I got one coming in the mail now.
