Such knives are not common today from Robeson.

Actually, I did not intend to sound so sarcastic in that post, but when I wrote it, I had completely forgotten about those four blade scout/utilities.

But, no, I don't feel deprived at all. ::handshake::

Charlie, when I reread my post I realized that I had let my sarcasm bubble a little to the extreme side as well. Paltry is not a word I should have used. Your display is an awesome show of very fine Robeson punches. Sometimes I let my feeble attempts at humor go awry. :oops:

Jerryd, you confused me with that shoe horn. I kept thinking what the heck kind of blade is that.

GSmith, I was not offended by your post. I should have changed the text in my OP, as saying I didn't have very many and then posting all those pics was not accurate.

Nice ones posted above!
