Got my first Coon coming!

Annnnd, I'm pretty excited! I know they're made by Queen, so the quality has to be there.

I usually carry a Case, but I been itchin' for a Coon for a while now. I've also always wanted a Trapper, and I've also always wanted one with the Easy Open blade (razor) - and voila! The Colonel comes through with all of these!

Anybody else got one of these? Impressions? And be honest! Haha.

Semper Fi.

There ya go. Beauty eh?

My one time, safe queen experience with a Coon has been positive. It's an English Jack with smooth orange bone handles and the main is a spear blade so that covers three of my favorites.
