For Folks Who Are New To Pocket Knives

Postby jerryd6818 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 11:00 pm

This video is a 19 minute introduction to pocket knives and the terminology you will see folks on the forum using when talking about their pocket knives.

Jerry that's a pretty good starter course for a new traditional knife collector. Thanks for posting it here.

Thanks guys. I wish I'd had that video in my "formative years". I knew so little, I remember going through the SMKW catalog, trying to learn to recognize the patterns without reading the captions. "Let's see now, that must be a stockman and that one over there, I'm guessing, is a trapper." :oops:

I hear ya Jerry. It was much the same for me. No real reliable source of information. I just had to pick it up where I could find it and that was not simple or easily done. Of course that was pre-internet too.

In all honesty I'm still learning so there's no shame in not knowing it all. I'd encourage anyone who can to expand on the video that Jerry posted, please do so. We sure don't want to let the wonders of the slippie fade into obscurity.

This video showcases Case knives and some of the patterns they make. Most of these patterns are not exclusive to Case. The video is 4½ minutes and will not only give you an idea of some of the patterns that are available in traditional pocket knives but will also give you some real world size comparisons.

This video (5 minutes) was posted in another thread (not by me). But if this thread is to be instructional with a purpose of acquainting folks who are new to pocket knives, with the wonderful world of pocket knife collecting (or accumulation), I thought it belonged here too.

This 5 minute video shows how Victorinox makes Swiss Army Knives (commonly called SAKs).

Great info here! In the video for the Case patterns, you can blame me for the Walnut Burl and Turquoise Trapper. It was rehandled as specified by the owner as to how he wanted it done and has been shown in at least one more of his videos. Since it was a shorter vid I watched it first, but I'm going back now to catch the first one. Most of what I know was pre-internet just like Phil, but the internet has made knife research a lot easier now. Still, buying the right books can teach you a lot and bookmarking a site is easier than having a photographic memory (mine is instamatic, but instead of developing before your eyes, mine seems to disappear just as quick). ::facepalm:: AAPK has turned into one of the best places for those seeking any type of knife knowledge and this thread is another step in the advancement of spreading the word. Thanks for all the info!
