That knife is exquisite.
Thanks. It is a Langres, from France, by Stephane Thomachot. Gift from @Âchillepattada.
I recently read a couple of Ty Cobb biographies that portray the man in quite different ways. After some "due diligence", I've decided the more recent bio by Leerhsen is more trustworthy (and certainly better researched) than the sensationalistic "classic" by Stump.
Will have to look for that one.
Had that same knife and carried it for years. Nice sharp little thing. The only knife I ever lost. I replaced it with a similar Case lockback, but I usually carry something larger now.
Never heard of that book. Interesting title.
One take-away for me from the Leerhsen book is that Cobb wasn't as racist as he's often portrayed; he treated EVERYONE badly. (And spike-sharpening by Cobb seems to be an unsubstantiated myth that's "gone viral".)
I think of Watts as from the late 60s. This one came out in 1951- I guess the anxiety was cold war nuke related. I haven't read it, but the title somehow came to mind recently and maybe I will.
Because of the price I was guessing early '50s and Cold War. I remember the air raid sirens and having to get under my desk in the '60s.
"Of man's first disobedience...."
Thanks Vince! It's an Albaceteña by Celaya.
Navaja Albaceteña by José Herreros.
