    PLEASE POST YOUR TRADITIONAL GERMAN FIXED BLADES & POCKET KNIVES,

    Great thread Campbellclanman with some wonderful knives shown!!! Along side English knives, I have a strong penchant for German-made cutlery. Along with good steel and quality craftsmanship, old German stag could certainly rival that of Sheffield. Here is one example from an old German cutlery...

    Henckels Knives

    Dale_P, very nice Boker-made Trapper model. Campbellclanman, Wow, you've been busy my friend!!! :) Ivory handled Henckels folders are very uncommon, and you have two nice examples. Very neat to see those two beautiful champagne knives side by side to see the subtle differences. The metal...

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    Thanks Jack and yes, a relaxing but HOT weekend. :) A guy might be a bit nervous working around a firecracker plant. Every once in awhile a fireworks facility loses a roof here in the U.S. :)

    Ink Eraser Knives

    Some nice examples shown along with a few neat button hooks. You don't see many ink erasers with an American name attached, here is one from Miller Bros. Most ink erasers came with a protective sheath as seen below this model.

    Mike Moran Knives

    While at the Atlanta Blade Show a few weeks back I had the sincere pleasure to meet and spend some time with Mike Moran. Aside from being a great guy with a sharp mind and sense of humor to match, he is an incredibly talented craftsman. It was my considerable fortune to be able to acquire one of...

    Henckels Knives

    Hard to tell without a picture, but some Henckels folders did have very thick main blades, especially whittler models and folding hunter knives.

    Guardians of The Lambsfoot!

    Jack, that ad I sent you is a bit misleading in that the caption for that knife and the one to the right of it are shown in this more complete ad below. Even in that description though which they are called "Flip Knives", they got it wrong in calling that model "Sheepsfoot" instead of a...

    Help with info about history of a F.Newton Sheffield antique knife

    Nice example with some beautiful horn handles. From the 1800s through WWI, every knife that came out of the Joseph Rodgers company was nothing less than top notch. Between WWI and WWII, Rodgers knives were still pretty good overall, but the quality took a nosedive after WWII. The lack of good...

    Help with info about history of a F.Newton Sheffield antique knife

    Jack, great detailed information with wonderful pictures of various tooling!!! It's difficult sometimes for even advanced collectors to completely comprehend all of the nuances throughout the Sheffield cutlery world. Glad you were there to absorb the truth of much of it.

    That's a fine old stock knife with beautiful stag handles. It should date to around 1960.

    Henckels Knives

    Wonderful drawing of the Henckels factory in Solingen, Germany. And the two last knives are art as well!!! While I've seen a few knives contracted out to Abercrombie & Fitch, this is the first Henckels folder that I remember seeing. Beautiful example. Those metal handled Henckels bartenders...

    Boker Celebrates 150 Years

    Thanks for the bump Charlie with some wonderful Boker examples shown. That little pearl model has all the bells and whistles of its big brothers. Nice serpentine shape with neat long bolsters, and definitely genuine pearl. A classic "bomb" shield and a "Radium" blade etch puts that knife in the...
