    Thanks, cbach!!:thumbsup:
    Typical creative-minded student!!:D:D
    [QUOTE="black mamba:
    Pretty knife, Charlie, and very similar to my very first GEC knife, a Big Jack. Since Bill was at the helm of Queen when your MM was made, one can easily see the heritage. I'd call your Moore Maker a Big Jack as well.

    Thanks for the comparison, Jeff!! It appears that cutlers who move from place to place bring their patterns with them!!:rolleyes::)

    Another thread idea!! Patterns that transitioned cutleries; although, these are not precisely identical!

    Charlie, my Moore Maker has two shields as well, just like yours. I thought it might have been a mistake as well but after seeing others, it has made me curious.

    Picked up this single blade with some nice bone handles. Its approximately 3.9 inches long. It has no date and no model number on it hmmm.gif
    Single blade muskrat? Its almost exactly the same size as a Buck 302. I think it was made by Queen just because it feels like a Queen knife to me. It has the double shield. My first MM with the double shield.

    Here’s a MM boys knife I’m pretty fond of. Picked it up not too long ago and it’s been a handy little companion. I’ve got another one on the way here shortly.. but I don’t have pictures of it just yet.. :rolleyes:

    Thank you! It’s really grown on me. The size and blade shape really hit the sweet spot. F&F is very impressive as well :thumbsup:

    Here’s one Eric made for me. 1 of 1, but still applicable to the thread. And the MM I showed earlier in the thread was the inspiration for this one coming to life. Thought I’d share here.

    The Canal Street Cutlery Cooperative also made this pattern for Moore Maker in Ironwood and several other cover
    materials. They are well made, and,
    as far as I am aware, are the last knives to bear the Canal Street Cutlery tang stamp. This one and the Boy’s Knife are still available from Moore Maker with various options.

    Great Boy's Knives @Matt_WY , @JohnDF , and @Coreysbu , Canal Street Cutlery sure went out on a good note!
