Mark is elbow deep in the festivities out at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, and ran into famous custom knife maker and designer Tony Bose at the W.R. Case & Sons booth. Tony does a collaboration knife with W.R. Case each year, and for 2016 it is the Wilfred Lockback Folding Hunter.
The Lockback Folding Hunter features a 154CM clip blade and will be offered in 5 handles: Chestnut Bone, Brown Bone, Ebony Wood, 6.5 Bonestag, and Abalone. It is worth noting that the usual Antique Bone offering each year in this knife has been replaced this year with a Brown Bone. Although they do look very similar in color in my opinion, it is a different color. Also, there is no stag or mother of pearl this year, but a Bonestag handle instead in the most limited number at 125 pieces made. They are also making 125 pieces of Abalone, 200 Ebony, and 275 each of the Chestnut and Brown bone. Lastly, look for the pricing on these to be at or below pricing than the previous few years offerings.
