    Navi, the bolsters with the deep groove across them, like the monster in the post just above (nice Vince, even if it's not yours!), are called Rat-tail bolsters, because they are traditionally cut with a rat-tail (round tapered) file!

    That wostenholm is awesome vince. Thanks for showing it. What is the knife called? I can't make out the first word on the blade.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. The bone on the jackknife is a very dark red but I can never quite capture that aspect of it.

    Thanks for the close-up vince. I only have a little lap top... maybe I need a bigger monitor.

    Warm welcome to the forum cads 260. Thank for posting the information. That is my favourite book. I just bought Heritage of English Knives too. There is another thread here on that one. Looking forward to seeing some of your Sheffield knives. I can't get enough.

    Does the challenge have a country of origin on it Vince? She's a beauty.

    I think this one is quite old. It has a hand-forged spring that is narrow and thick at the blade end and wide and thin at the butt end. It has nice rosewood scales too.

    X2. The color of the blades are perfect.My favorit part of a trapper is how the blades lay in.

    s-k & all,I was told,that the trapper was made in Bridgeport Conn.,around 1900 to 1920, by a firm that bought out the English Challenge Cutlery Company The stamp on that knife is Challenge Cutlery Co.
    It is an earlier stamp,than the one on the six blade Congress on post # 43,witch is Challenge Cutlery Corp.
