Dig the long pull and it wears it age well if you ask me. If it were me I'd fill the chips and edge it:) That has the makings of a real cool user!
In a similar vein this once posh(?) knife landed and despite not being mad for mop I'm a fool for a three blade whittler with a manicuring file...
Thanks Unchained, the allure for me with B&C was a seemingly forward thinking company ethos. Namely a well paid happy workforce will have pride in their work and their company's output.
Seems to have paid off! :)
What didn't make the grade for this thread is the boulevard of broken blades...
Some amazing eye candy in this thread!! My offerings may not live up.
A 4 inch Frank Mills & Co Ltd "TRIMILS". That main is almost 3 inches, big penknife, well to me.
A Brookes and Crookes Lobster, loving the manicuring blade, its design is the best I've tried.
I'm not really a mop guy...
Plastic and proud Camco being put to use re guying (is that even a term?) an old military mountain tent the littleuns like playing in.
Getting way more pocket time than I ever thought it would, very nice edge and no fuss to use.
Good thing it ain't sharp!
I believe it was (once) a hawkbill. Its a very heavy duty piece with a walk and talk that best described as strut and shout:) So worth saving!
The kick had to go almost entirely to sink the edge into the handle.
Ehhh....well its razor sharp now but I somehow...
Lovely stamps and full blades at over 110 years old;) Have/will you sharpen and use?
Tell me, where does a fella find such an example as I'd love to come across similar.
Here is a diminutive example for entry in this thread.
Hallmark says, I believe, 1930 so just qualifies:)
Condolences to you Jack.
Always enjoyed reading what you wrote of Stan and watching any footage of him also. Seemed a lovely man, one who was happy to be at work, a rare thing that and it showed in his work.
Two lifetimes chalked down in his industry and from reading on him I doubt he ever...
And another Camillus, a first for me, which I took on my walk today and hummed the Wichita lineman:)
I quite like it, enough that I gave it a decent edge and removed the blade play. Should the notch in the wire stripper be sharp too and how does the 29 differ from my 27?
Waynorth, thanks, you are a star, polaris even!
3 inch closed so she's a shortie.
I did not realise the characteristic of a steel pin in nickle as a tell! Yet another fact to file away. Again, thank you sir, I'd spent ages looking it up with no joy
Wonderful photo that encapsulates a people coming together in a time and place. I'm going to disappear down the history hole relating to Walden Knife some spare hour.
Can any of you old knife aficionados shed any light on this maker for me?
