Brown Burlap “Tater Skin”

I just received the small work knife (aka small sodbuster) in brown burlap. It’s being called a “tater skin.” My first impression is that it looks even better than the website photo. At 3.4” it’s a drop smaller than I anticipated but that’s ok. Quality wise it’s an “A.” Very sharp centered blade with about a 6 pull that locks up tight with the linerlock. I still feel that’s unneeded but I can live with it. There are absolutely no gaps and the transitions are smooth. Best Rough Ryder yet. Click on the photo for a better look.

Very nice knife. Was it made in U.S.A. or China?

No. It was the look and size of the pattern that got me.

I don’t understand the reasoning behind the decision to use a linerlock on a small knife such as this. It has a nice pull with a good closing snap. The lock is overkill.

I am curious as to how the size of the lock compares to the big one. The big ones have locks that work great, even with my insulated gloves on. I'm wonder how much they scaled it down by.

I don’t have the larger ones but the tab on the lock feels like it can be unlocked with gloves. However, I doubt you could open it with gloves on.
