Beautiful knives! I love the way bone and carbon steel age. If only they could talk.


This one's my favourite:

Exquisite pattern, the long nail nicks and the swedges are beautiful. The handle is lovely as well. And I'm a sucker for anything that combines a sheepfoot blade and an awl!

That one is a favorite of mine as well. The Case XX long pull stockman has a sheepsfoot and awl as well. Those were just a few of my old knives I have collected for years. I have some that are well worn yet taken well care of. I have a stag handled Case XX trapper that has been carried so long that the stag handles are worn smooth, as if they had been sanded down. The blades are 1/3rd sharpened away yet whoever owned this fine blade took exceptional care with it. If this could only talk. Heck if I just had the pocket change that wore that stag smooth I would be a rich man.

FRANCISCOMV, I am glad Im not alone in the knife world. A knife with bone stag handles, with a long pulled blade with double cut swedges, nickle bolsters and brass liners, and made of carbon steel, makes my heart skip a beat like the first time I saw my future wife in her bikini. I have a saying I live by, it goes like this: If it doesnt have a bone handle, If it doesnt have a long pull blade, If it doesnt have a nickle shield or bolsters, If it doesnt have brass lines, and if it doesnt rust, then it doesnt go into my pocket. My current carry knife is a well worn 1930's Wards premium stockman with all the above traits. This is a contract knife I believe was built by Winchester. Do you have others than you can share with the forum?

I'll try to add some pics when I get home tonight, I don't have any slippies with real collector value, just current production ones that I enjoy using. But I'll post them.
