Looks like the pen has a little of a bad grind on the back of it. ?
Awesome! It looks like a jewel. Congrats.
Here's an old W.M. (William) Elliott, New York 1890-1919, Tear Drop Jack,
3-1/2 closed. Great old knife....imho
That beauty is beyond gorgeous!!! thanks for the look Jason. I always get a kick out of looking at your knives
Very nice knife!
Here are some I picked up on Ebay over the weekend.
First up is this Crucible Knife Co. with candy stripe scales.
Next are three knives...a USA, Imperial, and Water-Ville
My first ever Office knife! A Schmidt Germany. Not in the best shape, but it is neat.
A Wester bros. Germany. Other than a piece of the scale missing it is a fine knife!
Last is this Frye Phillip & Co. never heard of the brand. It was in rough shape so I worked on it for half any hour. Not done yet, though.
Nice haul, that Waterville tuxedo is nice. And the Wester sure has nice bone, even with part of it missing.
Nice knives, guys. Vanguard41xx, Goins' lists Frye Phillip & Co. as c1901-1920. Looks like a nice knife.
Thank you for the info Supratentorial
I posted this in BRL's subforum but I don't think that I added it here yet. 3 7/8" closed. Split Backspring whittler...stockman...stock-ittler. Hammer Brand on the main blade and 3621 on the pile side of the main blade. The punch is marked Pat'd 1171422. The spey is marked New York Knife Co Walden. Here's a link to a reprint of the 1916 patent document on Google Patents: http://www.google.com/patents?id=m0N...171422&f=false
Here is one my son bought as a surprise for me...a Schnefel Bros. Corn knife. From my understanding these were used by podiatrists. The fact that I am a podiatrist made it cooler.
I like that one Jake. That spiral punch is lovely, I like how
that placed it as well. Nice one buddy.
Received this little Wester Bros jack this week. Both blades still have good snap and the bone looks good to me. This on is missing the bail but I don't mind.
Charles, That's a dandy! Still looks
great. I'm jealous.. Congrats.
Charles, That Wharncliffe Whittler is awesome! Thanks for sharing it.
This is an OLD and well used whittler with all blades marked, but hard to read. Best mark is the master and it is BENETFINK / CHEAPSIDE with reverse marked Made In / Sheffield. My resources The London Knife Book indicate this was a retailer from around 1850 to 1920. The stag is what got my attention. All blades have good strong snap and are tight. Charles
New York Knife Co. Swayback Jack
That's a dandy Jake... Love those
old Swaybacks... Congrats!
