@JJ Cahill ~ thanks! Great old Hammer Brands there.
Half/Stop Half/Stop ~ I still like that white stag A.Wright! Haven’t changed my mind, nope. And lovely Barlow, too.

I really like this stockman. But some previous custodian decided to work the blades over with sandpaper.o_O
I suspect the auctionsite seller, because of the artful way his photography de-emphasized the ham handed clean up.

I have bought some rust buckets and “for parts or repair pocket knives”, where taking sandpaper to the blades was justifiable/necessary. Or when reprofiling a blade. The thing is, you don’t stop at some medium grit. Once you start, you really need to go up through the grades of sandpaper, each removing the scratches from the previous until it shines. Unless you’re just a hack.:mad:

Thanks for the compliment on my Lambsfoot Jeff! :) I don’t know what erks me more Jeff, someone who haphazardly uses sandpaper or someone who buffs the proverbial crap out of a knife to make it look better for sale on an auction site. For my two cents worth I would rather buy a knife in honest “As is!” condition. Have a good day my friend! :D

Very nice! Reminds me of my IKCO stamped cattle knife. Psst, don't tell anybody how nice the old Hammer, Imperial, IKCO knives are that way we can pick them all up cheap.
