    After reading Zombie' post I had a question regarding the Woodsman's Pal.

    I read down to Bebopcop's post. He responded to the question I had. I have seen a couple of those Pals with the hand guard, and wondered if anyone out there actually used one.

    A Woodsman's Pal is now on the list.

    thanks guys

    I'm on my second one with the handguard and it works great! You can't go wrong with this blade.

      Now where can I find one for $35???

      I went onto the Woodsman's website. I looked on ebay too. These critters are not cheap.

      Anyone got the cheapest source for these things?

      Too, the model with the handguard, it comes in a long and short version. Any suggestions as to what size you have. I am leaning toward the shorter version, it doesn't give up that much in my mind, but still produces the same effect.

        Honestly, nowadays if you found one for less than $60-100, you'd better look and see if there's a "made iin China" label on it somewhere...

        You definately get what you pay for these days, and I think we've all noticed the influx of garbage into what used to be a reasonably reputable industry. In fact, I'll be the first to admit: I've been suckered more than once by cheap imitations I thught were genuine bargains.

          All Woodman's Pals are made in the USA ( I prefer MOST things that way however I do like Norincos, fireworks and waxwood staffs from China).

          Like any thing I buy, I do TONS of research on it. When I was locating a source for one, I was suprised to find it at my local knife wholesaler for $35 :eek:vs. the $60-70 online.

          He only carrys the wood handle (no handguard) with a basic nylon sheath with a sharpening stone. I did a group buy on it a long time ago and bought all he had for that price. Last time I looked he had a few and I think they went up to $40 or $45 a pop...

          Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
          beat you to death with it because it is empty.

            I don't think that you will find a new one for less than 60. The longer blade gives more power in the swing and better leverage. For the difference in price I would get the longer blade. Don't think you will regret it. Knivesplus.com has them for $67
