Effingham FYI I have decided that it is time to set the record straight concerning the blade steel used on most of the Effingham era carbon steel bladed knives. Up for grabs are two great blades. Please PM with any questions, requests for additional pics, etc. In order: 1) BlackJack Model This is from the Eff. We have one of the Largest Selections of Automatica and Unique Items available and offer the collector more Exclusive Automatic Knives than any other company.
This is actually the second part of his original post. By about supplies were drying up. They are made almost exactly to the same standards. Jun 21, 1. Effingham knives have become very collectable. Your name or email address:
I'm used to a slimmer knife, and the Trailguide seems kind of wedgey to me. Jun 22, 2. The older trailguide is one of my favorite knives. I would not baton with it but it is most of what I want in a hunting knife.
I have opened up a deer and skinned it and still have the blade hair popping sharp. The only thing I would like to improve on is the sheath.
I have a leather handle on mine. A real worker as far as I am concerned. It has plenty of belly, and I think it has a good point for thrusting. It is one of my do all knives. Jun 22, 3. Great knife with nice handling qualities but like the op I feel it's a bit thick in the blade. A slightly slimmed down version would be close to the perfect bush knife for me.

I've owned a couple of their classic line from the old days Made in Effingham, IL for many years. They're among the knives I've owned not as users, but just to collect and enjoy owning them. Today I took them both out to fool with and try to get a feel for their qualities. I was very impressed.
Both have carbon steel blades says so right on them , are beautifully full convex ground, and are literally both razor sharp, even after all these years. Never been used, but somehow you don't think knives will stay that level of sharpness for so many years Seems like nearly 20 years that I've had them, but I can't be sure.
Glides through paper like it's not there, to the point you can do little zig zag patterns as you're cutting. I have a new found respect for the original Blackjack brand. There's a new company who bought the name Blackjack and the company logo, but has nothing at all to do with the original company, and is more than likely putting out complete crap. The two I own are called the Classic Model a stag handled copy of an original Randall design intended for combat application , and the Classic Chucker, which is a compact, leather washer handled, skinner.
From what I read, bark river is making the"classic" blackjack knives here in the usa. They did sell their name to someone that makes their other lines in Japan, and they probably are crap.
I have a fer of the original Blackjack knives and I agree their quality is excellent. I really wish I had bought one of the Guide knives with the leather handle before they went out of business.
