I really appreciate all your input and pictures here friends!

I was under the impression that the different knives had somewhat different grinds and edge geometry, according to their intended use, i.e a skinning knife would have a more acute, but less sturdy edge than a more hard work oriented blade.

Hence my worry that a Model 3 would be to fragile for the job.

Gustaf,

I have a #3 6 inch stag that is a great general knife. Mine is great for general work, and has worked well on moose and bear. You can't go wrong with a #3.

Some of the other fellas commented on the #28. I used to have 2 of them, my #2 son has 1 of them now. Mine is part of my flyfishing gear, it is a great get wet knife.

Cheers,

Alan Grombacher

Thank you, Alan!

A #3 it shall be!

5", Tool steel, and a leather handle with lanyard hole, so nothing spectacular for this user.

Add light finger grips and nickle silver hilt. Still classic but a little more plush.

I just received this model 3 a couple weeks ago straight from the shop after a 4 1/2 year wait.

It was worth the wait!
