lee asked Does any one know where i can get a new oldtimer pocket knife with carbon steel blades online other than ebay?

I want to know where i can get a brand new oldtimer junior stockman 108ot pocket knife with carbon steel blades. I have had old timers all of my life and cannot find them anywhere. Please tell if you know or if you have one.

And got the following answer:

I am sad to say Schrade Cutlery the maker of Old Timer Brand Knives, went out of business a few years ago and the brand names were sold off. The new knives(made overseas) have Stainless steel blade for the most part. There are thousands of Old Timer knives out there and you will just have to look around at yard sales and E-bay and the like to find what you are looking for. Another possible source would be small old time hardware stores that may have some old stock left over from years before. Smokey Mountain Knife works may also be a source for some of the old carbon steel blades as they purchased a large quantity of the old stock when the company was auctioned off. In the last few years a lot of the blades were made from stainless steel because that is what the market demanded. People did not and do not want to take the time and effort to maintain and care for a carbon steel blade. I am one of those people who still loves a good carbon steel blade for the superior edge holding and ease of sharpening it offers as well as just having a great appreciation of history and tools. I hope this answer helps you find what you are looking for and here are a few tips to help you identify a carbon steel blade. On a used knife the blade will generaly have a dark tint almost black because carbon steel reacts to acids and other elements by forming a dark patina. you may also see some surface rust. The rust is easy to remove if it is not too bad with a little light oil and some steel or bronze wool. I would choose the bronze wool as it will not leave behind microscopic fibers or residue that will also rust over time. You can find it at boating centers or even Home Depot. Any good light oil works, 3 in 1, WD-40 will work, liquid wrench even light motor oil will work well. Be careful and work slow and steady. After a good cleaning sharpen her up and enjoy a great knife for years to come. If you see a knife and it is new and shiny you can plunge it into a potato and if the blade turns black you have carbon steel, you can also try a magnet most carbon steels will be attracted to the magnet and most Stainless will not because they do not have enough iron it them. There are exceptions to both rules but it is an easy way to tell the difference, and most people do not carry a potato around with them LOL. Best Of Luck I hope you find what you are looking for.

Zach asked How do i clean up and sharpen an old pocket knife?

I have my dad’s old pocket knife. This knife is 30+ years old. I have already steel wooled it and am soaking it in vinegar. i have no Idea what else to do but maybe put some WB40 in it?? I am going to be using for outdoor/fishing stuff. Any help??

And got the following answer:

I have a whole box of ‘things used for cleaning stuff’… it includes toothpicks and Q-tips and such.
The oil that you use on your pistol/rifle, like Rem oil or equivalent is OK on a knife. Just get to all the places where rust and dirt are likely to cause a problem.

Lansky makes a great sharpening system that will put a razor edge on a blade.

weasel asked What is the best Kind of steel for a knife?

I am thinking about buying a pocket knife with 8Cr14MoV stainless steel (equivalent to AUS 8). Is this good for everday light use. I’ve never bought a Knife before and don’t know what is good or not good. Any help would be great.

And got the following answer:

There’s no such thing as the best knife steel. There’s always going to be tradeoffs between things like edge holding, toughness, corrosion resistance, etc. You can even get some tradeoffs with the same steel, tempered differently. As far as the knife you’re looking at goes, I’m guessing it’s a Benchmade, in which case you’ll be fine. Benchmade makes good knives.

Here’s an article about various steels if you’re interested: http://www.knifeart.com/steelfaqbyjo.html

derfman24 asked What is the best pocket knife for a boy scout?

Well I’m a boy scout and I just earned my totin’ chit and I need a pocket knife to use. It’s for camping. I would like one for $0-$40.
Oh yeah it can’t be more than 3 inches long.

And got the following answer:

Hello Scout: Now that you’ve earned your tot’n’chip, you know that the best pocket knife has four blades; a large utility blade, a can opener, a small whitling blade, and a punch. The best knife to take camping is a cheap one that you won’t be sad about when it is lost. If you can’t afford to lose it, and must have it, use a short piece of rope to tie it to your belt. My favorite knife is the four-blade stainless steel government issue knife. I paid less than $10 on eBay for it, and have had it for four years or so. It is great for camping, and I use it nearly daily at work. The blade is not excessively sharp, but for cutting cord, sharpening a stick, or whitling fire tinder, it is very handy.
The other writer suggested a pocket tool like the leatherman, these are great as well, but I have difficulty using the knife, but the other tools inside are very handy at work, not so much at camp. Sadly, I lost mine a few days ago after only having it a few weeks. Still have the four-blader tho’.
I also have a Victorinox Swiss Army knife that I take on some trips. The only other blade that I use is the small saw that it has. If you get one as a gift, that is good, but I would stick to your simple four-blade model. The BSA model is a good knife, but it is not economical for a Scout to pay that much for a camping tool.
Keep on Scoutin’

asked Is there a pocket knife that will never dull?

I’m just curious if such a pocket knife exists that will never rust no matter how much it is used? I’ve been reading about CV or High Carbon steel blades that take a very long time to dull, and ceramic knifes apparently take a lot longer to dull as well but I’ve never found anything that guarantees to never go dull. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

And got the following answer:

if you never use it
it will never dull……

Ow1234 asked What is a good pocket knife matching description?

I’m looking for a durable pocket knife that has a steel handle, a pocket clip, it shouldn’t be too big so it doesn’t pull my pants down when I walk or hurt my leg. But it shouldn’t be too small either. And i would like something that is spring assisted but those tend to fall apart on me a lot because they usually have too many bolts so the less complex the better and under $55 or $60 dollars max. Any ideas?
Thanks I appreciate the suggestions I’ll look into it

And got the following answer:

Not a big spring assisted knife guy myself so I’d say the Spyderco Delica Stainless would be a good choice.
