I recently found myself missing the 34OT that I lost years and years ago, so I picked up one of the new ones. It's a nice little knife. No big gaps anywhere, the bevels are even on all three blades, and it holds an edge pretty well. If I had a complaint, it would be that the main blade has a halfstop that is no where near as crisp and "snappy" as a Case or a GEC. But, it does
have a halfstop, which the Case and US made Buck medium stockmen don't have. (I like halfstops) To me it would be a bargain at twice the price. I'm currently going through sort of a mini-trapper phase, and I like my Middleman well enough, that when I saw a 94OTY Gunstock Trapper, I scooped it up. Same story, everything looks good, and it's got halftops on both
blades. Again, sort of "mushy" and vague halfstops, but they do stop. For less than 25 bucks apiece, these knives are nothing to sneeze at!
