I am right there with my friend Harry - Mr.Schott you have some very very nice knives, and yes I agree that Ibberson is something special all right- extremely nice find...
sisgh...one day I will be able to get an Ibberson like that, I did have an outstanding Ibberson folding Pruner - but I sent that to Robin ( Pipeman ) as he was collecting Farmers Jacks/Pruner type of Knives.
An often asked question...any initials inside the liners at all?
The Arched Stamped Pruner my friend?... who made that one- - Its a beaut for sure as are those two big Jacks Top righ - first Photo... The Big Old Rat's Tailed Bolstered Beaut next to that large Jack with the fancy Roped Bolster...Ok I started pointing out knives so I must stop - because each and every one is quite specatacular- the Ebonies never fail to impress ..........
such as my mate Herder's STUNNING Ulster Jack...Mate!!!!! that my friend is a very very nice Knife - what a find!
North Shore...i find that I*XL interesting as Harry said - nice find, I love the early style Font used with the Stamping - yet the construction is not too old - Love to have a look more about that- it's so hard to find answers to the finer details of the Sheffields!
I was very lucky to score a nice Early Lockwood Bros. Stag handled Pruner the other day - Im very happy with it- so will post when I can.
Have a great day folks.
