    @5ycamore; I've been trying different patterns recently and some that look a 'tad' strange in photos really work well 'in the hand' ... I suspect this is one of them.

    Brumby, you’re spot on, mate. 1890-1930 seemed to be the golden age of traditional slipjoint knife patterns, and there was a lot of ‘evolutionary pressure’ and development of competing patterns by the different manufacturers.

    That ‘hump’ on the spine of the Eureka Jack serves a purpose, as that main central pin needs some thickness around the backspring, as you know. That thicker area of backspring is usually on the inside of the knife, and can limit blade height, and also cause ‘blade rap’. The Eureka deals with this issue by putting the thicker area of backspring on the outside of the handle.

    So the Eureka can not only have a higher spine to edge width on the main blade, meaning it’s very thin behind the edge - about 0.009”-0.010” - but the hump on the back of the handle actually has a nice ergonomic comfort, offering a neat contour for the meat at the base of your thumb to rest on.

    It’s a really nice design. I’ve been wanting one for a while, and I’m well impressed with it.

    Nice recent acquisitions too, by the way, mate.
