How to Select a Good Pocket Knife (feature article)

Too bad Schrade went out of business about a year ago, they made great knives.

Ah Boker, good German knife maker with a long time USA subsidiary. I believe the US division of Boker was taken over by our government during WWII and manufactured bayonets and fighting knives for the Army and Marines.

One maker I really miss is the original Western Cutlery based in Boulder Colorado before being aquired by Camillus and liquidated. It basically exists now only as a secondary brand name of Camillus.

That's too bad about your Buck knife Don. To me the Buck 110 has always been to hunting knives what the Remington 870 Express is to hunting shotguns - i.e. a real workhorse and a good knife for a really inexpensive price.
