    What a beauty Rob- just a STUNNING example in every way! Now THATS what I call Pick-Bone :eek: :eek:
    ( I would still class this as Pick-bone as much as it does get quite busy - Wow)

    Rob, Ron, Charlie, all very nice knives!:thumbsup:


    Picked up a decent Case Bradford Sheepsfoot 3 3/4" coke bottle jack that dates from 1914 to 1920 if I am dating it right. It has a pattern number 6208 but that is for a later case Whittler so I would have to assume early Case knives used a different numbering system. It has a raised letter arrow shield and unusual bone, looks like it was saw cut before it was jigged,
    Knife is tight and snappy but has suffered from corrosion and some sandpaper abuse. I can find very little information on early Case knives and have not been able to find another example so if anyone has any information it would be appreciated. The last picture is of a later Clauss knife I have that is the same knife.

    Real nice bone on the Case bros and I like the shield reminds me of an old pennant or something

    Wonderful and very attractive folders Augie and Kevin:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Augie my friend- Both those Case built Knives are gorgeous! I hope you find more information about them, perhaps Steve could help? Real Nice Sheeps-foot Jacks :) :thumbsup:

    Kev, three nice ones! I like that wards, thats a nice refreshing Knife, I wonder if Utica made that one as Well- quite possibly.

    Those Ulsters!!! :eek: my friend that Teardrop Jack is a great Knife! Beautiful examples of Stag there- Phew! Real nice that one, that Half congress is nothing to sneeze at either - another very very nice Knife there! Well done!

    Lloyd matey- Real nice and real early NYK Congress! we don't see too many of those lying around these days, so that's a nice treat to view that Knife- Thanks you for sharing my friend- it's always such a pleasure looking at your knives as you have such great taste.

    Mike!!! When you have finished looking over My 4 bladed Senator- I would like you to send it on back to me please :D, What a great Knife!- everything about that Knife is simply great- and the Fact it was part of Charles's collection just gives that a nice tick as well!

    Steve - My friend- that's a very nice Half Congress you have there, Kev is right the bar is a nice touch, usually I like such beautiful Bone ( with such immensely nice jigging ) to speak for itself, but that one works!
