    You will note that the 2008 versions are sleeker in the blade and handle than the past versions made between 1997 and 2008.

    There has also been a Steel change to A-2 Tool Steel at 58 Rockwell C.

    I have been avoiding these 1-7 threads. I swore I would be satisfied simply accumulating one of each of the Effingham variants, telling myself that they were the original line and thus somehow better. I made the foolish mistake of clicking on this tread and now I am screwed. God I'm weak I don't have any self control when it comes to 1-7's made under the direction of Mr. Stewart. I have walked by several Randall 1-7's that I had the money in my pocket for at the time at gun shows, but there's just something about the Blackjacks (Effingham and the new MI made ones) that I just can't say no to. Maybe I would be better off offering Mike a sum of money to just stop building 1-7's??? I know I have a problem but really don't want any help for it!!!
    All Hail George Brinkley! for destroying a 100 year old tradition of quality knifemaking, quite a legacy.

    Great knives! The stacked leather handle version is just classic! But it was the A2 (along with an encounter with a bear on a trail) that tipped me over the edge - now I can tell you that it is every bit as good in the hand, in fact, better, as it is in the photos!

    Good job, Mike and crew, including Reid and the SSSS crew!

    Be careful - It's sharp!

    These look great,
    I never thought I would see all these handle choices on a Blackjack knife.

    Mike, your 1-7 this looks fantastic.

    I have a question:

    Concerning a 1-7 with micarta handle there are two options:
    1. a micarta handle with a pommel,
    2. a micarta sabre handle.

    Is the knife with pommel stronger. more sturdy (because a sticky tang is fixed thru pommel with a screw?). How is a sabre handle fixed to the tang?

    I would appreciate an answer very much because I have to decide which one to order.

    I don't think it makes any Difference.

    After making about 100,000 of these and never having a Blind Tang handle Come off--I would say that there is no Difference is Toughness.

    The Epoxy we use is very permanent.
