On last week's cruise to Alaska I was able to get back to the store in Juneau. It's a small store but they always have something that I want. This time one of my brothers and a BIL went into the store with me. We all left with something we "needed". This time I picked up another double knife set. These are wonderful tools for the hunter and I like how they are sheathed.

Coupled with my purchase from two years ago:







I would recommend to anyone. Are there better knives made - absolutely but these are in my price range and they stay sharp for a long time if not abused.

Let me ask you, which sheath configuration you like better?

I think I like the stacked better than the side by side but too soon to tell. I'll be using the stacked this hunting season and I'll know more after that. The side by side seemed a bit wide on the belt but wasn't too bad - was fairly flexible.

Really nice knives. I have a couple combos myself. Pricey, but not that bad for the quality that you get. They will last you a lifetime…with proper care…
Congrats… G Mac

Handle material is a fairly hard rubber. It has a good grip when you have blood on your hands, isn't terribly cold in freezing weather, either.

Most if not all of their knives are also available in stag handles, and some with the standard handles in an orange rubber.

Scott,

I noticed those knives when they were introduced some years back, but never acquired a set........I have too many knives, now! ..................I think.......:hmmmm:

They look to be well made, and ready to go to work.

I'll be intereseted to say if you really like the stacked sheath better.............

Years ago, I had a Western knife set in a stacked sheath, and I kept bumping into things, as they (stacked) stand off your belt a bit more............I'd opt for the side/side sheath, now.

Knives are like 22's................they say you can never have too many, huh?

Great way to remember a trip!........I used to buy Randalls in the Orange Grove, every time I went to Fla to visit my Dad............

Tom

Tom I'm thinking I like the double stack but have not been in the field with it yet. You make a good point that it will protrude further than the side by side. Knives are a fun thing to pick up when you can. Almost gets me in as much trouble as Marlins and other firearms.

Hey Scott,

Great looking "foursome"!

Hope you get to try them out on some "piggies"!

Later, Mark
