Weekly Update 9.2.16

Really tough when the weekly update has to start with a return to reality.  For those of you that aren’t regular readers, I spent a few days in the land of Trestle Pine Knives doing some field research and generally kicking back for a few days.  Frankly, I’d much rather still be there then back at work.  For now I’ll just say we had a great time and tease you a bit with this…..

But, more on that later!

Lotsa stuff waiting on my desk when I got home Wednesday nite.  More 72’s of course and some great new Queen releases.

The first is a #56 Coke Bottle design with 1095 blades.  These came in Amber Stag, Elk, Torched Stag and Winterbottom handle options.  Great looking knives and very nicely done.

Next was a Hawkbill in Ebony Wood.

And the third are the S&M #99’s in Brown Jigged Bone & Ebony Wood.  These are really nicely put together but fair warning, they do have some pretty hefty springs.  I would rank the pull at a solid 8.5.  It’s a great looking traditional knife for the individual wanting a medium size knife that has a really solid lockup.

Next week, Queen will be shipping out a couple more new items in the form of the 41 Folding Hunter.

Based on the popularity of the last release with the Spalted Maple, I’m betting these are going to sell out quickly.

I’m getting caught up on processing orders and following up on messages.  There are more knives coming in today and tomorrow so the next few days and the first of the week you should see quite a few new knives get listed.  In fact, I’m happy to report that the final lot of Trestle Pine Grand Portages will be going in the store the first of the week.  There are also more Portages and some Buddy’s as well.  Stay tuned!!
