As we wait for the balance of the Great Eastern 43 Oregon Trappers to come through, I’ve been going through some boxes of knives that have ‘accumulated’, shall we say. The discoveries have been some nice new old stock knives.
Some of them have come from small collections I picked up and just never got around to listing. A few more are Queen and Schatt & Morgan old stock that I may have loaded up on in the past and didn’t restock in the store from my inventory. Here are a couple of examples.
A number of the listings sold within a couple of hours of being listed, so obviously, you’re paying attention! There are more to be listed, in fact quite a few more of the old stock knives. I just have to stay the course and keep working through them.
The 43 Oregon Trappers have been a booming success. We’ve got the Canvas Micarta and Rust Red Jigged Bone Tidioute’s to go and then we’re on to the Northfield’s. If I weren’t so taken by the newer powdered blade steel’s, I would be very inclined to carry one for a while. The overall size and weight make it a great size for anyone wanting an EDC knife that’s big enough for heavier tasks but not so big it takes a sheath to carry comfortably. I’ve spent some time comparing it to the 73 I used to carry and that slight increase in size really feels nice in hand.
I’m waiting on another order of Hess Knives to show up in the next week or so. I let them sell down and it seems like it takes a little longer each time I reorder to get the knives in. It sounds like they’re getting close to being maxed out on keeping up with orders which is good…. I think. For the money they make a great product.
No news regarding Queen yet. As someone else said, the longer this drags out with absolutely no word as to what’s happening, the more concerning it gets as to whether they’ll survive or get revived.
