    @paulhilborn Thanks Paul! Staring at it is what I’ve been doing. Well, fondling it too of course. Just can’t bring myself to use it...

    I only see 72s in delrin.
    Doesn't mean much because there's a lot I have yet to see.

    Is it possible it's been re-handled?

    Totally agree on the excellence of the 72!

    It could have been rehandled, I don’t know. Maybe the person who did it ran out of pins?
    Most 72’s are delrin or composite. The first archived appearance in 1946 had bone covers which was discontinued the next year, according to the catalogs.

    That table looks surprisingly clear. :p
    That's probably for the best. I think I'll just take a break now, and wait for the results.

    Couple of Camillus and one OVB I'm pretty sure was made by Camillus

    That's because it's not my table! :p :D :thumbsup:

    I was picking up my mate's kids from skool, and had picked up a package on the way, which had been crossing the Pond for the previous 3 weeks. Despite that, and a lack of oil and flushing, and my arthritis, it did not prove to be unopenable, either using the nail-nick or by pinching the nose of the blade :thumbsup:

    Thank you Tom :thumbsup:

    Bone 72s from the pre-synthetic days seem to mostly be Rogers bone. This is mine.



    I have never seen a 3-line 72, the one pictured is a first-gen with the short line post-war stamp.

    These are my Wooden Wednesday totes. Not one bottlecap around for the scout to open but plenty of packages...

    @rasta bomb That’s a real nice example of a 72! The bone on the pile side is similar to mine. I’m not sure if the tang stamp on mine is considered as the 3 line stamp.
