    Another Winchester made (I believe) Keen Kutter. Knife is 3". I just wanted to bring this thread back from the depths of page 5. There have to be more Winchesters out there somewhere!

    Beautiful folders Dan and Al:thumbsup: Here is one like Dan’s KK but mine is the Winchester marked variety. I would have posted it sooner but forgot I had it until I was perusing some of my MPs the other day.

    I really like that lobster, Al!:thumbsup:
    Nice one, Lloyd, identical knives, even identically posed, with different stampings. Only difference is the Keen Kutter is stainless.

    Thanks for the catalog cuts, Al, they are always nice to see. This question probably isn't appropiate in this thread, but, how do you do the @username thing? I have tried a few things, but can't seem to figure it out.

    I just spent the past half hour rescuing these pics out of PhotoBucket. I had couple of nice small Winchesters, including this one, that I sold to Chuko (Charles Lamb) five or six years ago. As I recall, which is not saying much, this one was around 3 1/4. [​IMG]

    You're very welcome.
    re: username... just like you did it, but with the specific username. If you type @ followed by a specific username, it should work. It even has an autocomplete after you type the first few letters of someone's username.

    Thanks for the nice comments on the Winchester. Kinda wish I had kept it now. I'll see if I can find the other one that I sold Charles.

    Bumped from page 5 for this nice Toothpick I found tucked into the corner of my safe, and guarded by a ferocious spider!!:eek:

    Tang is a bit faint, does not scan well!

    Here is one I have on it's way to me. I planned on putting it into my carry rotation, any objections. I bought it because I like a small knife. Is this 3" one rightly called a pen knife or something else; the main blade is a spear not a pen. Pattern 2963, nice jigged bone. These photos show the Winchester marking on the main and pen. is this 1920's? 1930's? Later? One of the higher quality or after the decline in quality? Was this pattern a carry on from Napanoch or Walden or one Winchester came up with? I do not think Eagle. A lot of questions I know but I know little about the older Winchesters.

    Nice knife, sceva!:thumbsup: I posted this in the thread you started on this knife, but will put it here as well. A catalog cut from a 1930 Winchester catalog reprint. I have no idea how long your knife was in production for, but it was available in 1930. Good work bumping up this thread. Maybe a few Winchesters will crawl out of the woodwork.

    Thanks Danno50;

    I see that the catalog cut says STAG Handle while the illustration and my knife is a nice jigged bone. Was that Winchester using creative descriptions?

    It was very common for old knife companies to use the term stag for jigged bone. If the handles were actual stag, they would say genuine stag, or something similar to indicate real stag.
