    This may qualify. 4 3/8" long, IXL Sheffield, a real working knife I bought at a gun shop 4 decades ago.

    Nice ones ismaris and Stuart. I think these are hard to find in good (or in the case of the Primbles, great) condition.

    Thanks, guys. I really like the size, but I don't have as many as I'd like.

    Thanks! These English Jacks are usually 2 blades but this is just a single. I do like the wood though.

    A lot of beautiful knives posted recently!:thumbsup: Here are a Queen and a Keen Kutter. Apologies as the Keen Kutter has been previously posted in a couple of other threads. They are both a hair over 4 1/2".

    A 1994 Case which was the NKCA year knife. Has a slight swell on the well side, but I think still qualifies as an English jack. Length is 1/16 shy of 4 1/2"

    That is a great one, Charlie! Beautiful pick bone, Washington? bolsters, full blades and in great condition for a knife that is probably over 100 years old. You have posted many beautiful English jacks.

    Nice additions to the thread, Dan. The Keen Kutter is great. Charlie, I knew you were holding out. Love the bolsters, bone and swedges on that knife.

    I like larger knives. :thumbsup: So, I’m having a hard time figuring out why this Queen Winterbottom #29 is my only example of the English Jack pattern. To be perfectly honest, I wouldn’t have it if my good friend Stuart @Duckdog had not graciously gifted it to me on one of my recent trips to DC. Thanks Stuart! :)
