    I have one of these as well, the clip has some light chipping near the tip I can never seem to get out, but otherwise I like it. I think the Uncle Henry series (especially the USA ones from yesteryear) would be a good office to field type knife.

    Absolutely! But only the Made in the U.S.A. ones for me. The older, the better. The old carbon steel ones had a temper that was hard to beat. ;)

    This is my Big Dad's Case XX..I watched him use is 100 times for cutting an apple to trimming a fuel line on his tractor...I slip it into my pocket to this day and still envision him using it...

    Mine is the stainless bladed version, but the springs are carbon steel, my dad has a larger UH stockman from around the same era as well.

    I've been eyeballing some options from GEC and the Benchmade proper. Tough choices all around.

    I too am starting to seriously consider a nicer slip joint for an edc folder. I carry an esee 4 every day so a locking blade is not essential for my folder. Been carrying a Case CV folding hunter for the past week I like it but I dont find it the most appealing to the eye. I really like the big coke bottle designs like the GEC 97 but I'm not sure about the brass liners and nickel silver pins for longterm "heavy" use. I'm hoping to find a similar design but all steel construction.

    I've got a yellow CV FH. Got an old Coke Bottle from Case as well, but it's edge is a work in progress. Spring seem to be pretty strong and it's one of the few Case knives I've found with a half stop. I like to look and feel of the FH, but I find myself preferring a combo of my SAK and a stockman of some kind.

    The case large CV stockman is tempting, and affordable piece, if I run across one in person at a hardware store I'll probably pick it up.

    Not much of it is traditional, but it is a slip joint. Just arrived today.

    The large stockman in CV is on my list as well, as well as the '47 medium stockman. It puts each blade on it's own spring instead of crinking or grinding the sheepsfoot and spey blades to fit.

    Ordered a large stockman out of Rough Ryder's classic carbon series to scratch the itch, plus I've been curious about them. Last RR I came into contact with was a lockback my sister had where the pins would loosen up. It was fine besides that, and I've heard they've really stepped up their game in the past few years.

    Got a little hike in this weekend. Used my 1980-vintage COLONIAL camp knife to spread some topping on crackers. Love the wide blade on this much better than my SAK's narrow blade...

    The first nice knife I bought myself was a Buck medium Stockman with the yellow synthetic scales. It is a nice knife but after I tried to cut the end of my little finger off using it a little hard, I switched to a locking folder.
