It didn't take long. I have one coming in.

I'm looking for an older model, the one with the knurled handle. It should be just shy of collector grade. I'm looking for a user grade, but a nice one. It needn't be part of a set, but it's OK if it is.

If you have one you'd part with, or see one and don't want to bid on it yourself I'd like to hear about it.

Thanks gents!

You want the early version with blade bumps or the later with blade hooks? Both work with modern SE blades.

Jeff, I didn't know there was a choice.

I'm betting you know more about it than I do, and my mind is open. Tell me about it. Is one better than the other?

What I don't want is another mild one, as my previous '14 was. FWIW, it had hook blade stops and a hex handle and was in a '25 touring kit.

If you haven't read the background for this WTB read of it here.

The old knulred handled one I'm using now (needs some TLC before too long), and love, has hooks for blade stops.
