Just saw a link to this knife - not much but at least more information about it. Google All About Pocket Knives 43326 - should find an item for sale that looks quite a bit like the above.

Hope this helps.

I'm buying several of these as Christmas gifts this year. Victorinox Waiters for the Ladies and Campers for the men.

Western - Coleman Bait Camp sheath knife . . .

. . . these are the shorter, more thicker bladed fillet knife sold by that company. This tang stamp is the only one I've seen. S-W764 is the model name.



And the sides. Sheath is a pouch type.





Hen & Rooster 261 M1 Coffin Jack. I believe this is one of the latter made knives, not the older models which were considered some very fine knives indeed. Not sure what the scale material is. Neat little pocket knife.





J.A. Henckel 836 Swell End Serpentine Whittler, vintage pocket knife.





And the tang stamp:



Moore Maker 5100 LB01 lock back, stange 'floating' lock lever. Little guy, maybe 2 1/2" long closed.





Tang stamp:



Last one - King's Kwality stockman. Celluloid swirl scales, made in 1930's. Uncommon manufacture - nicely made knife.

Those are nice j.r. Especially that last one. I've never heard of the brand and the cell covers are really nice.

Keep on posting j.r. I bought a pretty pricey CZ last month, so my knife buying is on hold for a while. I think the only one I've got on order is the 2013 Bladeforums annual traditional knife, a Congress jack by GEC. Hope we get them in before December.

Thank you for the kind comments . . .

. . . its what I do.

Weidmanshiel lockback, pearl scales, stainless steel blade. I haven't found much background information on this one.







German Eye 99YL lockback sodbuster, I'm pretty sure its more recent Olbitz manufacture, I'm still trying to date it. Maybe 1970's but am not sure of that. It is well used, the clip blade takes a good edge.

Picked up a couple of new ones last week. First one is a Northwoods Norfolk in what Derrick calls "light ebony":



And the other one is an "improved trapper" by GEC. A new variation of their 48 trapper pattern. This one in "ivory bone":



I think the trapper is my favorite of the two. The Norfolk is a good size, but not as comfortable to me. Maybe it will grow on me...

Those are pretty TLARbb . . .

. . . I like the slanted grooved bolsters on the Norfolk, really 'classes' it up.

The warncliffe blade on the trapper is very unusual - I don't think I've ever seen that on the pattern before. Very cool!

And as usual, outstanding photography skills, very sharp focus. Thanks for the pictures of them.

Novelty Cutlery whittler pattern knife . . .

. . . yellow celluloid scales, vintage old pocket knife. Not sure how old this one is but the company has been around since 1870s ? The name is still around, but made in foreign shores.





And another Novelty, this one a jack knife.





And the tang:



There is some great historical knife information about this company, a 'knifeaholic' might find some interesting reading. Augustus Vignos was the founder's name. I could link it, but it might break a forum rule, so I'm just laying down hints. Interesting company that used celluloid quite often.

Case has made several runs of wharncliffe trappers. In fact, the 2013 Case/Bose collaboration knife is a wharncliffe trapper. Beautiful knife, but bigger than the GEC. Case has runs occasionally of single blade wharncliffe trappers. Here is one in CV with stag covers:



shown alongside a single blade sowbelly in damascus and stag.

And here is a full size wharncliffe trapper paired with the smaller mini trapper. They also released a tiny trapper in the series, but I don't have one of them. Very nice knives in an ugly color.

Weekend before last was the annual family trip to the mountains...which of course meant a trip to SMKW for the men. Went a little different route this year. I used to carry a Swiss Army knife a lot. They are so handy. This one is BIG. Hefty one hand open locking blade. And I always wanted one with a saw...loving it so far.
