POLL: Case Medium Stockman throw down

Post by Lansky1 » Wed Jun 03, 2020 2:47 pm

I've always liked medium stockman's ... and of the Case variety, I have always favored the 32, due to it's slimness and pen secondary. I see alot more #18's on the web, so I bet Case makes more of those. I'm curious which of these is preferred on AAPK (I thought we'd keep it to the true medium stockman's - we'll save the venerable #44, 90, 87 & 47 for another poll) ...

#32 pattern for me. The #18 doesn't do anything for me.

Tough, tough, tough!
The medium stockman is my favorite due to size and having three blades.
If I say 32 today, it'll be the 18 tomorrow! And vise-versa.
Put one of each on the table in front me, tell me to take one, and I'll make my decision based on the handle!!

Ergo, I didn't vote. ::facepalm::
Take care and God bless,

I like the squared bolsters of the 32.

I've always been fond of the spey blade stockman so have several 18's as my go to's. That would be my choice but I have been giving a 32 some pocket time.

I’ll take the serpentine and rounded bolsters every time. I have several 18’s but nary a single 32.

18 in the pocket is way more comfortable! IMO

I own more of the #18 pattern but voted for #32. I think there are also #18's that would fall somewhere in the middle, with pen blades instead of the spey.

I'm not that crazy about the smaller stockman patterns, but the 47, 92, and 75 are my favorites. The last one is a 99. I know, it's not a stockman, but it is my favorite and I have to show it off. :D

Of the 32 patterns, I like the 6332 best. Can't beat it.

I voted for the 18 for three reasons: rounded bolsters are easier on pocket fabric, I often find a spey blade's curve useful, but mainly 18s are more common. I've found them with stag I liked and used 18s at bargain prices locally. My first choice is an 18 with the master blade that is less common in recent production 18s. I'll call it a standard clip and the more common clip blade a Turkish clip but I have no confidence that those are correct blade names. Local Ace Hardware Stores stock red 18s with a standard clip master.

I only own one still unused blue bone 32 that I bought only to have a 32 in my collection. I like Stockmans.

I like them both ALOT! But I guess if I had to choose it would be the 32. Slimmer with the pen blade.

I would have to say the 18, shown are the two I have, a 6318SS pocket worn red bone and a 3318 yellow. As previously mentioned, the rounded bolsters are an important feature. Interesting how the clip master blades are somewhat different on the same pattern.
