    Thanks, S-K. It'd be nice to know more about it but info is scarce. The friend that sent it to me (a flea market find) is from The Netherlands so "Amsterdam" seemed to imply Dutch manufacture or service. Then again, who knows?

    Here's a few things I do know about it
    I knew,when I bid on it on the "Bay" it was not a fake,and,
    despite it's condition,I can't believe the firm perfect snap on the main blade,and no blade wobble

    How old is old??

    I do have a few more Vince. A couple of pages maybe.
    Here's a LaBelle Barlow. Last recorded to make knives in 1891!

    "Old Knife" thread rule (un-official)

    Charlie,let's say,as long as the knife is older than the person posting it,that's old enough,OK?

    So the ones I show will have to be at least pre-1969 from now on.

    Have you checked with the AARP Legal Staff about this rule?

    The LaBelle's ebony Vince! I like your "older than the poster" rule, but it does make it tough on us ancient ones! The LaBelle barely makes it
    Now let's see how old you guys really are!!!

    Well ok, as long as it is "jigged bona fide".

    It's great to see all these old knives and to learn more about them.

    So this one is older than I am by at least one year (probably more), as they changed stampings ca.1943 from Schrade Cut Co. like this one, to Schrade Walden.

    I like those old hawkbill prunning knives. This Harrison Bros and Howson is definitely older than me. Waynorth I have an English version of your Schrade budding/prunning knife. Will post it this evening.

    Larry, lol young man. I was actually implying the old "I'm still 39" rule. Pre-1950 would be more factual for yours truly.

    I think I only have one knife that is pre-1950. It's been shown in this forum before, but I'll bring it in to this thread as it will be more at home here.

    Here's a link to more info about this one, and grand dad, if you are curious (thanks again Codger 64):

    Unfortunately, no prize for guessing the age of this one.
