As much as I do? I have seen other makers try...but this bad boy by Tony may be the best one I have ever seen.....



Granted my scan does Not do it justice as Kerry’s camera would do...but you get the gist.

If you have one ...lets see it

Mr. Nugent,

I have to agree with you. That has always been a favorite pattern. Fluted bolsters add a nice touch as always.

Thank you John! What a spectabulous knife! I agree with j. on the fluted bolsters and what a piece of stag! The colors, the form, the fit. What more could a guy want in a knife? I know what I'm dreaming about tonight. Sorry Dolly and Sophia, Maybe some other time

I've got that ebay one in my hand right now. Let's just say it exceeded my expectations. I'd post a pic. but it's probably better to just imagine it than for me to try to take a worthy pic, I'll have to change my username to Nopics..

John Barth, I'm sure your picture would be better than the ones we saw on eBay.

John Nugent, heck of a nice saddlehorn you have.

John, that's a beautiful image and I seriously doubt that I could do any better. And, you're right, that saddlehorn is a show stopper!

Wow! If I wasn't so ashamed of my picture taking ability, I would put mine up...although I will go on and admit that the stag on it doesn't come close to yours.

It really doesn't get any better than that. Look at the edges on those blades. And one thing is the way they look , the other the way they perform. Believe me, they perform better than they look.

Over thirty five years ago I had a small German pocket knife that I used for years and I lost it. I then started looking for a knife to replace it. After decades of looking and buying all sorts of knives I ran into Bose knives by serendipity. Boy, did I hit the jackpot. I don't have any sons, I have a daughter but she knows all about knives, and it feels great to know that my TB knives will be in good hands for at least another generation.

That is my favorite model (with the two bladed Trapper running a close second). I Love the way they look and the shape fits perfectly in the hand... Love the rounded blade, and the shields look spectacular!

great pics guys

Here's my little baby. The background isn't as cool as everyone else's, but the knife sure feels nice and cuts great...even without a fluted bolster (joke)

Here's one more for you. This was my first and only knife made by Tony. I ended up needing to sell it a couple of years ago. It was a real beast!



Enjoy!

Looks like AG Russell bone -- as I understand, he had a special batch done some years ago (in Japan I think). Gorgeous stuff. Most I've seen is more red than brown -- I've got some on a Bob Dozier folder; mostly brown like this one is somewhat unusual. Sadly, I don't have any on a Bose.

That red AG bone reminded me of this red dyed stag Saddle.
Really nice solid knife...barrel shaped like I like them.

HI JOHN!!! That's an awesome saddlehorn. Do you know the story behind that died stag? Very rich looking handle material. Thanks for the look.

I am not too sure about the history of the dyed stag; I just remember when Reese sold it to me. You may ask him, I bet he remembers the knife. Not only is it rich in color, but also the stag is very dense, a great example of a Bose Knife.

Who ever dyed it knew what they were doing...I would think the “denser” the material the less it would absorb any die...but it sure did.

Hello, I have been looking to get one of these. I was wondering how hard this is going to be? I have been collecting Randalls for awhile. I just started buying some folders about a month ago and I have got to find one of these. I got my first T. Bose last week, a really nice desk knife. Would it be best to order one, or just keep searching? What kind of price am I looking at?

Thanks Alot,
Rick

Welcome to the club Rick...I have been collecting Bose and Terry Davis knives for about 12 yrs and have never bought after market. I order directly from the maker. Dont know if Tony still accepting orders. The makers prices are fair, you can get gouged on prices "after-market"

Hi Rick,
There are a few knife purveyors around that have had them. I saw one that went for $1250...but that was a while back I think. They are out there, you just have to sniff them out. To me the SaddleHorn is one of the coolest patterns...old and new.

Saddlehorns are a great pattern imho.

I seem to (lately) really like the single blade version but you can't go wrong with any version.

...Oh baby, you know what I like...

Now, THAT'S what I'm talkin' about!

Thanks, John. I picked up a single blade from another excellent maker at Blade and hope someday to be able to add one with the Bose name on the tang.

I hope you can.

I truthfully feel that any Bose Collector should have a SaddleHorn(s) in his/her collection.
SaddleHorns and Wharncliffe Trappers are the essence of Bose you might say.

I like the single blade ones or the modified two-blade without the spey blade the best. Killer swedges on those. Thanks John

That’s a tuff one to call Mike…I really like that big-o potbelly spey blade.

I would have loved to see one in action by a guy like this… that used it as it was meant.

I never saw my grandfathr or any of the other cowboys on spring round ups in Colorado use a spey blade for castrating steers, but I'm sure the blade has that name for a reason.

Interesting take....Those guys would know….

I guess I always thought they were used for skinning Buffalo.
I would love to get my hands on some early Case one’s…Not many around I guess…all used up

Probably safer to skin a buffalo (after it'd been shot) than to try to castrate it with a spey blade. (Don't shoot Mongo, you'll just make him mad! comes to mind. )

It's good to know that people from the past look forward in time and say: Wow, we never made them knives anywhere nearly as good as they do.

If there ever was a Golden Age of pocket knives this is it, boys and girls. And Bose knives are as good as it gets. When I put one of mine to work, it smiles back at me. Naughty old thing.
