    Let's see some knives with a shackle/bail!

    I don't like bails but the older SAKs did have some nice ones.

    Your newest addition:traditionals of course!

    The postman brought this today: a type 1951 Spartan. It's 1952-57 but the stamps make me think it's specifically 1957. Had one just like it before but this one's a lot nicer.

    Horseman's/Sportsman's Knives!!

    No, I completely missed that! They really thought of everything.

    Horseman's/Sportsman's Knives!!

    Quite a smart thing to put in a knife back then, innit? I've never seen anything like it.

    Horseman's/Sportsman's Knives!!

    Looks like it's a scale that goes up to 6 kilograms. Might come useful when fishing?

    Congress pattern. Purpose w 4 blades?

    From what I remember (might not be 100 % right), it was popular with people who worked hard because if you broke one blade you still had 3 and if you broke another you still had 2 etc. You got a lot of bang for your buck. One has to remember that a lot of people didnt take particulary good care...

    Let's see your Case knives, old to new.

    From my experience that's true. The vintage ones are nicely rounded.

    Horseman's/Sportsman's Knives!!

    Dang, he sure got more than a dollar's worth of use out of it though, even if we adjust for inflation! :oops: And if we go even deeper down the rabbit hole, I wonder what the coin used in the transaction really was as Spanish pesos (= 8 reales) or British crowns (= 5 shilling) would still be...

    Horseman's/Sportsman's Knives!!

    Sadly I don't have any but iirc Thomas Jefferson had one. Definitely a variety we see to little of, considering how popular they seem to have been in the past. Great idea for a thread! Edit: is the hook we see on some of them a "button hook"?

    Show Us Your Boys Knife

    From my understanding, which may very well be flawed, it's a simple jack knife, ment to be a boy's first knife that will teach him how to handle and use it. Usually it would be a swell end jack, one or two blades, no fancy materials. Often all steel construction (although that's not a must by...

    If it's possible . . .

    Things change, as we all know, but currently it's this lil old Wenger. Something about the badge, exposed rivets, crisp tools, so much in a well made small package. I've dismissed SAKs for a long time, until I came across a few vintage ones. While the old army model 1908 is a bit of a brick for...

    What was your first GEC

    My very first GEC was a more than generous Christmas gift from @Will Power, a 66 slim that's still one of my absolute favourites. My car seat swallowed it for a whole year but I found it again. :rolleyes: The first GEC I bought myself was this 73 jack, a tank of a knife.
