This old Sam Bohlin, German made knife was my Granny's favorite kitchen knife. Just gotta love the lion's head pommel. It's been well used and sharpened a bunch but everything is still solid. It has a 4" blade.

I can close my eyes and still see her using this in the kitchen of her old farm house. I couldn't even guess how many potatoes it peeled or how many chickens it cut up.

This is a very interesting thread. It is an education for me to see so many fine and unusual knives.

Unfortunately, I was never a big collector of sharp things, however, I do recognize quality and craftsmanship. Consequently, I have picked up an assortment of knives over the years. Here are a few of my (pre-70's) sheath knives:

Marples Hunter w/ Hex cap


Buck No. 120 together with a Puma (White Hunter). I bought the Puma in 1968 when I was 16. Not my favorite knife (but it was my first).


Pair of Hoffritz knives. An early multi-tool knife and a sheath folder


I picked this up at a gun club swap meet last summer and I have no idea of who made it. It is not marked, but it obviously a fine piece of work.

Kutmaster bowie . . .

. . . the sort of knife many of us wore in our younger teen years.





Vernco skinning knife, I loved the way this company made their sheaths.







Western skinner, I haven't able to find anything on this pattern. About 8" overall and a very thin blade that is like a razor. Almost a mini Nessmuk. Pretty sure the handle has bee redone.

Rigid R-10 Rebel . . .

. . . manufactured by some Buck knife employees that decided to go out on their own. They advertised 'Custom quality at a factory price'.





Nice sheath.

Homemade knife

When I was a kid a friend of my Dad's showed me a knife he made in the service. Used a piece of circular saw blade for the blade. The handle was different colored salvaged Plexiglas slipped over the tang. He said he polished everything with tooth powder (before toothpaste) and it was pretty slick.

I carried one of those on three trips to SEA '71, '72 and '73. Mine's not in that good of condition but I bet it will still open the old steel beer cans just as well as when it was new.

Herter's Improved Bowies . . .

. . . nothing fancy, just a slim 'butcher' type of knife we are all familiar with. I really liked the handles, they fit the hand well and are a joy to use.





Pal RH51 BSA sheath knife. Another Boy Scouts of America endorsed item.

Yes sir, I believe the traditional use of these were by hunters to humanely dispatch their downed game animals by inserting the blade at the throat to bleed them out. Or something like that, my apologies for incomplete information.

This is an old Kabar 'thistle head' sheath knife. Found it at the APPK web site, couldn't pass it up.
