    One thing to consider on the Vic Gardener/Florist is that they are essentially chisel ground. Primary grind and edge bevel on one side, flat on the other. It doesn't make much difference for most tasks and given the overall thin-ness of the stock at 2mm I think it gives a sturdier blade than if it were double ground, but some folks do not care for chisel grinds so it's worth noting.

    Are those pretty common? I have never seen one; although that means nothing.

    Are you referring to the knife or to that type of grind on an SAK blade?

    • RULE 3b! Hot-links removed!

    Woohoo! I found a few that fit my desires!: The Great Eastern Sleeveboard (pictured below), and the Eureka Jack (bottom).

    Yeah, the gardener/florist is on my list, but thanks for the upclose and personal shots.

    I am looking for one in black. They run for about $30 with postage.

    Just ordered this for starters.

    I am thinking the scales might finish up quite nice with some good sanding and oil.

    The only place I've seen it in person was at Target in a combo pack with another knife (I think it was the Climber). I bought it because I wanted the Gardener and then sold or traded off the other knife.

    I think I recall being told by someone a while back that they got some at a store selling supplies for commercial fisherman. I wonder if they might be found at some garden supply places or maybe feed & grain stores but I've never come across one there.

    I thought about those.

    Both are a bit larger knife than the #15. GEC is doing an excellent job of bringing old patterns back to life.

    Ditto. Nice little knife (or it seems small relative to bandana backdrop).

    Kiwi? Kinda more a Wharncliffe, IMO, but close and gentleman-ly.

    Also more in the Wharncliffe style is the Sanrenmu 721, which has a pocket clip but is extremely thin with it removed.

    The Sanrenmu 702 might also work, thoough I personally prefer the 721.

    Nice idea!

    And, for those that don't know it, Rough Rider is the Enlan or Sanrenmu of traditional folders; quality and build Far, Far above the price point!
