Just in from Case ... 2019 seahorse whittler with their fence row jigged covers.
Two of my favourites, just showing them off!
My newest additions, USA made Schrades and a couple black box Winchesters
John Lloyd Sowbelly.
This came in the mail today even though the Tracking Number given to me showed that it was delivered to somewhere in Arizona .
From what I can find it was made in Solingen for F.A.Bower Import Co. from someplace in Florida U.S.A. between 1950 to 1985 .
Brass Pins and Liners , Bone Covers , Half Stops , still some Snap in opening and closing but the Pivot and Well both need to be cleaned out and flushed and then there may be more Snap . Whoever previously owned this knife did a decent job of cleaning it up .
Picked up this Rough Rider scout today. Very stout and robust feeling knife. The screwdriver and awl are probably an 8 pull. No gaps or play whatsoever, and while plenty sharp I like a bit thinner edge so i addressed that. Lol I'm not entirely sure how to use this type can opener,never had one before. Rounded the edges of the covers a little more,not a fault of the knife,more of personal preference. Probably will try a tea/coffee bath to darken the covers.
I've found that RR bone takes Rit dye very well. Sometimes too well! Red comes out looking great. I have overdone it with brown and blue turning in almost black.
Made the "oops" of stopping at the pawnshop on the way home from the Archery Pro Shop, about an hour ago.
They had a Remington Canoe.
They were only asking $24.99.
I offered $20 out the door.
They accepted my offer, but charged me a little less out the door.
Tang Stamp is 1933-1935.
"Remington" (block letters) in a circle, and "Made In USA" outside the circle.
Circular shield with "Remington" inside, script font.
I'm not sure if the covers are stag, bone jigged to look like stag, or delrin(?).
Two blade, single spring, brass liners, NS bolsters.
Is it a Queen re-issue? I don't know.
Both blades are full, and it does not look like it has been sharpened.
I believe I will carry it for a month er two.
Got these a few weeks ago:
A Klaas coke bottle, a Case stockman in Damascus with stag covers and GEC #82
I was in Sweden and few days ago and I wanted a Swedish knife and I picked up a Mora Garberg and an opinel no.7 and Fallkniven dc4 as extras.
Finally got this Colonial E-2 Electrician Knife today. I like it but to be honest the overall fit and finish is pretty underwhelming. But for something that was essentially a government issue tool I guess that is to be expected. It feels pretty hefty and I think it will make a good tool belt addition. However, it is much bigger than I anticipated, so I probably won't be carrying it as my everyday personal knife. Size comparisons below.
Lengthwise the handle is pretty comparable to small Sebenza, but it is considerably thicker. I was expecting it to be close in size to the mid-size Case knives like the mini trapper or medium stockman, but it is much larger.
Looks well made, I figure most of the tl29 types are thought of by the manufacturer as more of a tool belt knife. Therefore save money by a more plain finish. That one definitely looks to have robust blades. I really like the pattern, and now have 4 and always have my eye out for more lol. The chunkiest one I have is a Klien 3 blade,the sleekest is an old clamshell Imperial.
It's not pretty but it definitely feels tough. I'm looking forward to giving it some field use.
I picked up a pair of schrade walden little congress knives. I think the four blade is bone but it's the trickiest one to discern that I've had. Usually it's easy. The sides look like delrin but the shoulders have the color and texture that bone should have. It's harder to tell when the dye is so dark but I'm going with bone.
This half congress is definitely plastic handled. It's very slim and hard to notice in pocket so I think I may carry it permanently as a "bonus knife", until I get tired of doing so.
I will try to post a pic tomorrow, but I received a vintage Kutmaster barlow that I found on fleabay... and it has probably the ugliest scales I've seen on a knife recently, but it appears to be well made, fairly good snap, with the blades hardly sharpened, apparently. It's carbon steel, and ugly, but I think it's going to be a fine addition to my user knives.
This 1965 - 1969 era Case CV 6265 Folding Hunter with Pakkawood jigged covers came in the mail yesterday. The cosmetic condition was a bit rough so I cleaned it up and put a nice sharp edge on it. The liners are brass as are the pins, the bolsters are nickle silver, and the shield is pinned. Although I could spruce up the blades a bit more, I'm not going to as I like these older knives with some blemishes just as much and sometimes more than I do a brand new, flawless, sparkling knife, mint out of the box.
I had one of these exactly like this one that I carried in the Navy for 24-years but I recently gave it to one of my nephews along with a couple more of my Navy knives as I knew he wouldn't abuse them but that he would take care of them.
For the price of lunch and 15 minutes of flitz, oil, and elbow grease I've got a Case soddie, one of my favorites another Douk-Douk and a small Imperial with I believe celluloid covers.
The 82 showed up yesterday.
A coin knife by J.D. Ware joins my other.
Well, here are pics of the Kutmaster. I'm pleased with the build of this knife. It's tight, and there is no discernible wobble. The blades look to be full size. Just those ugly scales.... although, after a day or so, they don't look as bad as I initially thought.
I believe it is, but of you're worried about outgassing it's easy to take off since it's just a plastic film or shell.
You can pry it off with a pin...ect.
