:lol: Not a GShock fan i guess. Thanks! That Space Pen is 13 years old. Bought mine after seeing it on Seinfeld (like many others I’m sure). I figured leaving the stickers on would add to the cool factor, especially for future sake.

Does anyone know who manufactures filson knives? Other than collaborations, but for instance the assisted opening knife with the Kershaw style open

Wow in both beauty and price. If you have to ask.... Well, you know the saying. Okay. Okay. Okay. It's $1,800.

The other items in the Hand-Tooled Leather collection look pretty great too. I really like this wallet even if I can't/won't afford it. I don't use a wallet anyway. I love the choice of the contrasting stitching on this one.

If I needed a 257 since they are no longer available new I would give this one a look. Very nice looking example

Odd...I saw this go up on ebay the other day. Guess someone must have picked it up in Seattle before this most recent run of limited edition items hit the world wide web.

The Possibles Pouch has been available for some time. All the stuff with fringes on it on that page are items that were available in a previous catalog. I don't know if they were listed on the webite.

Wonder how common these are. Mix of YKK and Talon zippers on a 258 I just picked up. Must have been on the cusp of their transition in the early 2000s. Still no build tag though.

Wow that’s interesting. They are the same gauge zippers, yes? Probably had additional of the 258 front pocket length since it’s unique and ran out of the main compartment as it’s shared among other bags. That’s a really cool/unique feature to the bag.

I think they’re the same size, can’t really tell lol. But good point! Considering the size difference between the tabs, the YKK works well as a main compartment zipper.

Good morning, gentlemen! I'm a new member from the rainforests of eastern Canada (just a bit northeast of Maine). Filson gear I've owned include the medium field bag in Otter Green, the original Pullman in Tan (both sold a few years ago to pay for diapers and formula), the wading jacket and fly fishing strap vest (both, sadly stolen at the end of a fishing trip), the Waterfowl Upland jacket in Otter Green and the extra-long duckbill cap, which have just received their third re-waxing in 15 years. I am not as big a fan of the Bedrock gear, though I did pick up a Down Cruiser Vest in Mossy Oak Bottomland, Front Loading Shooting Shirt and polo shirt at the recent summer sale. The build quality seemed solid enough, I just wish they weren't charging Seattle prices for clothes made in Bangladesh. I do like some of the Bedrock collaborations with other American companies, and I've got a Tenkara Rod Co Sawtooth fly rod in Fillson colors that I've been fishing regularly when the lockdown allows. Oh, and I've got a Heritage Sportsman Bag in green and tan on the way to me because I like the style and I wanted to get another American-made Filson bag while they are still being produced in Seattle.
Since some of you are also interested in pocket knives, I've included a pic of the four I use most often: from top to bottom, they are my "Canadian

razor," a Grohmann mini lockback in rosewood; an early 2000s black-on-black SOG speed-assisted Blink; an early 1980s Parker Benchmade thumb-stud toplock in bone; and a 1980s Haller folding boot knife with rosewood scales, which has the same clean lines as a Parker Desperado but better balance, IMHO. The Grohmann and the Haller ride in a buffalo leather offset sheath with timber rattler inserts.
It's a pleasure to discover a forum for folks who love good gear.
