Bird and Trout, CASE, etc. show them

Post by tongueriver » Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:18 pm

I love fixed blade hunting knives and have accumulated a bunch of them. One of my favorite types is the so-called Bird and Trout pattern. I have examples from WESTERN Boulder and BUCK and some others that would qualify. But I have never owned a fixed blade knife from CASE. I finally changed that with this one, a 516-5 from (I think) the 1970s. A "Blue Scroll" series. I am not crazy about the etch, but otherwise I love this knife. It has nice stag handles and a hollow grind that should make it a good slicer. Feel free to show some more B&T knives, or if there is already a thread, perhaps a moderator would kindly pop this post over to that one.

Yep, I agree... the bird and trout is a nice pattern. Here is a KA-BAR #1224 with a total length of 6". I'm planning for this one to be the first "hunting knife" for one of my grandsons when he gets old enough. Just the right size for a youngster.

That Kabar is seriously cute! A lot smaller than the CASE which I showed but probably more in line with the B&T genre.

The B & T is one of the very few fixed blade knife patterns I own (apart from kitchen knives, of course).

These Queens are 6.25" tip to butt...Perfect size IMO.

Those little Queens are great. I believe they were also sold in sets as steak knives.

The Queen steak knives are quite a bit longer. Here are three that I bought at a yard sale.

I believe this little Queen qualifies.

And this Randall Model 8 is called a Bird & Trout (or actually Trout & Bird ::shrug:: ) This was my first and only Randall. Had it since the late '70s.

It just hit me. I think this little Northwoods Button Hole quailifies as a B&T.

These Westerns may be a little long to properly fit the genre as it is usually understood, but it is the general size range that I prefer. The Westerns with these slender proportions are 48s, 58s, and 77s.
