    WOW! quite a beautiful array of fine old knives in this thread. Of course one cannot post without adding a picture, by no means does this compare to the wonderful stag and bone handles knives in this thread.

    I collect pruners and other utility patterns so that will be the majority of my postings I suppose. Hope I do not bore you.
    Here are 4 Case xx 61011 models from the 1960's and 1970's

    You're welcome. It didn't really take any particular genius on my part to make that move, Vince (and S-K) but thanks for taking the time to say thanks.

    Those are great hawkbill prunners keensharp. I like the jigged bone scales, especially the two in the middle. Thanks for showing them.

    This one has seen its share of sharpening over the years.

    Thank you both

    Beautiful bone on your pruner smiling-knife. Is that "needham" I see stamped on the tang?

    My Case's are not jigged bone unfortunately, they are jigged wood. I also like your signature line smiling-knife, it's the truth.

    Ok, Here are several schrade pruners from my collection. some are 186 models, others are 136 models, the top two have the schrade cut co stamping, the rest are schrade walden stamps. To be technical, the 136 models (ones with shackles and the 2nd from top without shackle) were meant to be electricians utility knives for stripping the covering off of wires and cables. They all have a hooked blade so they have a place in my collection. haha

    wow Mike, love that stag, the curves of the handle and blade match very well. The top one is very nice too.

    Great old prunners guys. The jigged wood looks great keensharp.... yes the tang is marked Needham, Hill Street, Sheffield is mostly wiped out. The Henckels stag is awesome Mike.

    This one is made by Harrison Bros & Howson and marked Cutlers to Her Majesty (i.e., Victoria). The handle is ivory and the blade is marked so perhaps a salesman's sample or display knife at one time.

    Hermitage Cutlery Folding Dagger

    Hermitage Cutlery was a house brand of Grey and Dudley Hardware in Nashville Tenn. who were in business from 1895 - 1927. Very thin knife, only 5/16 at widest point, 4 5/8 long ( most of these folding daggers were this length), nice tobacco colored bone, almost a chestnut / purple in the right light, with a unique jigging pattern

    That is lovely. I've not seen bone like that before.

    This Wostenholm looks to be a similar pattern and same size. I think the handles are a composite made to look like stag.

    That's my only lockback Vince. I think we should appreciate your last photo for awhile. That is an awesome collection. Thanks.

    Thank You s-k. I think,that your lockback is not composite scales.I do not think they had composite anything then.I've heard of "blackened" stag ? Anyone else ever hear of that ?
    This Wostenholm Anglo Saxon whittler has pressed bone scales,made to look like stag

    Another beauty Vince. I have this one that may have similar scales. It looks a little like stag but also like bone...especially around the edges. What do you think?
