    Beautiful photo. It was nice speaking with you a while back and thank you for posting John. You can tell that knife has seen many pleasurable years of use. It’s kind of like an old vintage car. They are only new once and sometimes the ones with all the beautiful patina are worth more than a fully restored back to original example because they’ve got character. This knife has character and I believe it was my dads intent to keep that used, in and out of your pocket character when he repaired the spring, which is not an easy task. In the car restoration business when I have a survivor car I’m working on, an over restoration can ruin that character. From what I can see in the picture, I’m pretty sure he didn’t completely disassemble the whole knife during the repair. He would have polished and cleaned up the tang stamp area more but I’m pretty sure he was trying to preserve those well patinated handles. If there’s ever an issue with that front bolster area in regards to snap, walk, talk, fit or finish please let my Dad know. He’d be happy to keep that knife happily in your pocket for the next 17-18 years.

    Thank you JJ.. It’s “Hammer Time” with those two elegant knives.

    @Jack Black - Thank you Jack. Your Hartshead rules. Who’s the maker of that twin bladed, bailed, EO beauty? May you also enjoy the weekend.

    Auto (car, Jeep, bike, etc) people do the best stuff for kids. That’s awesome. Every year we adopt a less fortunate family from church and try to spoil them.

    This one today for the SEC championship or until my new Dunlap gets back from him for the addition of makers mark. Of course, mail will probably run real late.
