I couldn't resist this big, made in China, knife for $20........

It will spend a lot of time in the trunk or under the drivers seat............depending on the quality (?) of the steel.

My second Kershaw Leek. Great every day knife. Came sharp, stays sharp and isn't too hard to re-sharpen


And my first kit knife. I'm working on some nicely figured American Walnut scales

I bought a copy of the classic 1830's Gravely & Wreaks Tahchee/Cherokee Bowie (aka: Arkansas Toothpick) from Crazy Crow.

This is what I got:



And this the same knife, after I effected a few changes, like extending the scales forward, colorizing the blade, and cutting the fringe off the sheath:

Bought this one recently for my Grandson 'cause he liked mine so well. It's a long discontinued Kershaw Kaper 2300. Has a very nice, 3" thin, upswept blade, full tang that is only measurably thicker than the blade. The scales are modular bolted on rosewood & the steel has a number of serrations that I assume are for grip?? It is a wonderful small game skinning knife, very light & handy but feels sturdy in the hand. Also feels tough enough to handle larger game skinning chores as well. I've been very pleased with mine as I'm sure he will be.

Yep - the serrations/filework on the bladeback, near the tip, is for the forefinger, when "choking up" during caping out around an animal's eyes/ears/lips, etc, for better control.

Ditto the serrations/filework on bladeback/bottom near the juncture of cutting edge & grip - sometimes a blade can get slimey/slippery during a skinning op.

Of course, the fact that the filework appears to be well done doesn't hurt, either......

My Emerson Horseman showed up last Friday and my Benchmade Mini Griptilian is scheduled to be delivered on Thursday. I'm fighting the urge to pick up a big knife.

Nice knives folks . . .

. . . thank you for the pictures of them.

This is an old Wards 3012 cattle knife, about 3 1/2" long closed. I believe it is from the 1930's - 1940's, and was manufactured by Winchester. A $5 purchase from a city flea market box of knives. Man, those blades will take an edge!





The jack knife with it is a Cattaraugus 2248, it too an old vintage knife. Love those bone handles. I can easily picture those knives in my Grandfather's hands.

Boker

Snagged another stag copperhead from Ebay at an excellent price. Got lucky I guess, not much bidding on it. NIB Boker 4626.

Nice tree brand Boker, those scales are awesome! That you purchased for a bargain price makes it even sweeter.

German Eye 'Youth' sheath knife . . .

. . . a very small sheath pattern sold for young or persons of slight stature. Cool little blade. The grips are synthetic, not true stag material. About 6" overall length.



Western 742 stockman. Big stockman, about 4" closed.





Herter's Trapper knife, made in Germany, no idea who is actual manufacturer. Made in 1960's. 4" closed length, nice bone scales. Found this at Dale Vincent's shop.





The tang stamp:

Since this is the last day of the month, if I don't get these posted today I'll hafta start a new thread titled - Which Knife Did You Buy Last Month? -

I don't know a whole lot about these kinves - only bought 'em 'cause they're made less'n 60 miles from where I live so I thought it'd be neat to have at least a sample... I've only been able to acquire a couple of 'lockbacks' but have a line on a 'stockman' & another that may be a 'pen knife'.

First one is a small, thin (3" closed, 3/16" thick) all stainless lockback. Has a few 'storage stains/marks' but appears to have never been carried/sharpened -






Next is one called 'The McCoy Rebel'. It is another lockback, 3 3/4" closed but still relatively thin with what appear to be oak handles. It too is stainless but exhibits lots of marks'n scratches, & appears to have definitely been carried/sharpened -






Ain't sure about the 'quality' but the larger one took a nice edge pretty easily; only time & use will tell how it holds it

Another recent acquisition adds to my Parker 'accumulation' - This is Japan mfg'd from Parker's association with the Japanese knife makers at Seki & perhaps others. Still in near new condition except for a few rub marks it is a 4 1/8" American Blade AB-26 Trapper with smooth bone 'Appaloosa' handles. Think these were mfg'd in the 1980's. It appears to have been stored in the box as the 'joints' were very stiff & the handles appear to have 'soaked' up a little oil in a couple of places. Some more light oil & considerable 'working' has freed up the blade joints somewhat...
