The Tidioute #98 Texas Whittler is a classic style large pocket knife that's designed primarily for one thing... WORK! The robust construction and three blades makes it ideal for handling most any cutting task that may come up on the farm, field or the job site. The Texas Whittler combines great looks with excellent form and function providing years of dependable service. Made with pride in Titusville, PA. We are an authorized Great Eastern Cutlery Dealer and purchased this new knife direct from them.
This knife features three 1095 carbon steel satin finished blades. The larger primary blade features a 3.5" slightly recurved cutting edge, clip point and nail nick for opening. The smaller sheepsfoot and spear point blades have a cutting edge of 1.875" and nail nicks as well. The two smaller blades have a half stop, the large blade does not.
The Handle Construction:
The handle scales are Red Linen Micarta and all attaching pins are brass. There is a slight taper of the handle from the front to the back. The handle scale edges are rounded and flush with the outside perimeter making the knife comfortable to hold. The bolsters and inlay are nickel silver and the liners are brass. The fit and finish are excellent and the blade action is smooth with crisp parking when opened and closed.
