Pocket knife question

Recommended Posts

On a standard pocket knife such as a stockman, or trapper, does anyone know what is meant by "ringed  bolster"? Also pinched bolsters.

I see what you're talking about. I am looking at a knife from Smoky Mountain Knife Works. It has ringed bolsters. Wasn't quite sure what that meant. I know there are so cheapie knives with little clip on bolsters. Absolutely don't want that.

From what I can tell, the bolster is the ends of the knife body. Whether it's ringed or pinched depends on how the maker scribes or fashions said bolsters??!!

I used to live down the street from these guys when they were at their old warehouse and while they didn't have a storefront, they would let me order stuff online and walk down to pick it up to save on shipping.  Real nice bunch of dudes.

Thanks for the link.

I recently lost my EDC Spyderco Ladybug and was in the market for a new knife for my keychain.

I was going to go with the Spyderco Clipitool with the bottle opener but decided against it because of the non-locking slipjoint mechanism it uses.

I went with the Kershaw Cinder which is just the right size, has a bottle opener and a liner lock. Its my first Kershaw. I have heard good things about them on these forums.
