HOK Thread

Postby philco » Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:45 pm

Not every knife is in mint condition with a flawless factory etch. There are many knives that have been working for a living but still have that special something that draws us to them. They don't have to be perfect to make their way in to many of our collections. This thread is for those knives. Let's see your HOKs (honest old knives) here on this thread.

Thanks John.

I'll start this picture show off with this old scout/utility stamped "Made In USA". I love these old scouts and those Roger's Bone handles flip my switch. I hope others can appreciate this knife too. :)

Great idea Phil! Minty knives are nice, but hok's are the ones you really grow fond of as you use them and they become a trusted companion.

I am looking to trade for old bone or rough black cattle knives. Especially a schrade 856.

861. This, and its little brothers in the 3 9/16 inch category is what Hal and I coined "Slenderinos."

::woot:: TJ do you have a specific rotation or does it just depend on how you feel that day as to which one gets a pocket ride?
