Who is This Knife for?0301stockman

This knife has an older look to it but it will perform just as well as a new-fangled fancy looking knife.  This knife is great for you to have in your pocket for your every day tasks that a knife is needed for.  If you are on the farm and need a knife to cut the twine, open the feed or just relax on the porch and whittle this is a great knife for you.

Blade and Sharpness

The 0301 Stockman’s blades are made from 420HC steel. This is a good quality steel, HC stands for High Carbon. This steel can be brought to a higher hardness and is better quality than the regular 420 steel.    There are three blades on the knife, the spey point, the sheepsfoot and the clip point blade. The spey blade was originally used to  neuter livestock.  Since then it has found many other uses based on its shape. It has a strait back and a strait blade until the top when it curves on the front and angles at the back.  The sheepsfoot blade refers to the use rather than the shape.  It was used to trim the hooves of sheep.  The shape of this blade is flat (bladeside) and it is flat on the back until the tip where it sharply curves.  The last blade is the clip point blade, it is more common in knives.   It is like a normal blade except the back side of the blade is clipped at the tip.  This blade is useful for jobs where you have to reach into small spaces.  It increases the blades ability to pierce and it makes for a good tooth pick.

Grip and Handling

This has a rosewood dymond brass plated handle.    The wood gives it a really cool almost antique look.  Even though it has this cool look to it it still is very strong and it will hold up well against the elements.  The handle is long enough to provide a good grip.  With any pocket knife, care has to be taken when the knife is in use to ensure that the blade does not fold into the handle while you are using it.

  1. I’ve owned and carried one of these for years. I also carry a large folder in a belt sheath as well as a Leatherman in an additional sheath. The Stockman stays in a pocket as a tool for detailed or prolonged cutting. Between the three i’m NEVER at a loss for a way to get things done.

    At $40 or less it is an ideal pocket knife in it’s own right.
