I knew they were getting married – but I lost track of the date – it snuck up on me – I ordered the “Lady Leg” and the “Halloween Special” for me and a matched set of these for the bride and groom . . .
I even wrapped them up all nice and pretty – didn’t get them in time for the wedding so they didn’t get to open them there . . .
I popped one out of the box to give you folks a look see – didn’t want to handle it too much as brass will acquire a patina – and they were gifts – let the newlyweds put the patina on them – that just doesn’t sound right – does it?
You even get a nice drawstring bag and a screw in locking pin . . .
Right at 9 inches open – wharncliffe blade / pocket clip / thumb studs – all massive
And tipping the scales at 14.89 oz in the brass – it all feels just right . . .
When you take the lock pin . . .
Screw it through the frame and lock / block the blade open – the only thing that beats the feel of this Proponent is a short sword – and as a reflection on how far the pussification ( thanx George Carlin ) of our society has gone – you really DO NOT want to carry a short sword out in public – DON’T ASK how I know this – ok?
I picked up a Proponent in G10 scales – the only place I found one was Amazon – go figure . . .
Really great job on machining the G10 – same knife – same praises – except . . .
It only weighs 9.2 oz –Bruce – are you nuts or what?? – That’s over a half pound of pocket knife!! – the G10 handled Proponent is just a whole different feel / level – the brass one “sings” to you – Wanna chop up a Ford? You bet! – Wanna chop a cow up? You bet! – Wanna chop a _________ ? ( insert damn near anything! ) You bet!
The G10 proponent is really a nice large folding knife – and I am going to wring it out for you folks in a review – next to the Proponent in bronze – it may be a while as the bronze are on back order – but I have one coming . . .
Mr. & Mrs. Short Stack are going to put a little review together for you folks – it may be a while – you folks know how that newlywed thing is – busy busy . . .
What’s in YOUR pocket??
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
One thought on “A Pair of Artisan Cutlery Brass Proponents – and Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Short Stack”
Nice review Bruce. The Bride and I love the knives. Thank you!!
