    This thread has been going on since 2008, I'm just now getting to the party. I'm thinking about buying my first sod buster. Do I want the Junior or Senior? Anyone know the actual blade lengths?

    Which?

    If you're thinking of pocket carry, then I suggest the Junior size. (Blade = 2.5 inches.)

    If you're going for pouch or scabbard carry (on belt) then the full sized ("Senior") will do nicely. (Blade = 3.5 inches.)

    I'll have to grab a tape measure for the ones I use, but the blade lengths will be in that zone.

    The Case Sod Buster Jr is, surprisingly, "a lot of knife" for its size. I've made whole salads with one.

    However, if you slice a lot of large-diameter salami or large blocks of cheese, you'll probably prefer the larger one.

    For a little perspective, the larger one's blade is about the size of your common kitchen paring knife, although it's a bit more stout.

    Still, in your pocket, the large one is kinda big. So for in-pocket carry, I use the Junior. For on-belt pouch carry, I use the full sized one.

    I carried one that I'd picked up in Germany back in 1969 for quite a while but it, like so many things over the years, was lost.

    For most of my years on the street in uniform my blade was an old Henckels sodbuster style folder with a cherry wood handle and a scary sharp carbon steel blade. In fact, for actual cutting ability I've never owned a sharper more clean cutting blade (that thing would slice throuh the thinnest of paper -or go right through heavy radiator hose, and anything in between). I still have it put away -the only weakness that knife had was how quickly it would corrode if you were around saltwater. Overall though it may have been the best blade I ever owned.... (and yes, it was German made before Henckels quit making folders...).

    As AG Russell points out, "Sodbuster", is now a copyright term of Case. AG Russell does make a magnificent knife he calls the Cowboy or the Rancher. First time I saw one of these I ordered one of them and then the Sowbelly. I have given them as gifts and will continue to do so. It is the only Chinese manufacture knife I have ever seen that exceeds my standards. Look up AG Russell, personal opinion is he sells only the best of working knives.

    The CV Yeller Sodbuster Junior is one of my faves. It just has the Mojo.

    My first real knife was a Sod JR; so was my second, third and fourth, because Mom kept confiscating them, and Dad let me replace them from my own funds.

    I'm looking very hard at a Queen Country Cousin....may be two, because I think Dad needs one, too. A classic 'Buster in D2, what's not to like? I have a couple Case Sodbuster Jr's in CV, and love them. One is my ''night on the town" knife, and other rides in my possibles bag; it has unzipped two or three deer in its day. The only reason I don't EDC one is because I really appreciate being able to operate a knife with one hand, and dislike having to fish around in my pocket for it when I need it in a hurry. When a horse is blowing up and trying to yank the hitching post out of the ground, these features are worth paying for.

    Eleven Mike..... I carry an Ontario RAT-1 all day, every day. I didn't think of it when I bought it, but it pretty much meets your "updated Sodbuster" criteria, with the added benefit of some thumb traction on the blade spine. The blade profile is even somewhat Sod-like.

    I found my Kissing Crane Brown mule it was resting in a winter jacket I last wore back in February 2014. It the baby one. But very sharp.
