Xl trapper or stockman folding knife?

I just bought a Benchmade Taggedout. It's slightly smaller than a Buck Folding Hunter though. Seems to take a really good edge though. I have a Bucklite I bought nearly forty years ago when they first cameout. I used it on a bambi just this year. They are a good knife...but too small for the original poster.
I simply put xl in the title because I was looking for a large folder do to having large hands. The one I had and lost overboard was just over six inches closed.
:) Got it. The way the post read it seemed some kind of mark on the blade. XX is a common mark on most Case knives. The only thing I've ever been able to determine about it is that a long time ago on a very early model X was marked to designate it had been heat treated and XX for heat treated twice. Since then XX doesn't have much meaning other than being recognizable and synonymous with the Case brand.

Well, sir, I am mighty impressed with the quality of the shell cordovan belt. I have several pairs of shoes that are shell cordovan, but had balked at paying over half that price for just a belt. Wouldn't be surprised if this belt doesn't last the rest of my life--for its color application. It sure is a universe removed from the cheaply constructed yet expensive stuff being put out there. Worth the price I paid.
