    Thanks all, for the nice comments on the New York stockman.
    I sometimes wish this thread didn't have so many pages, because I always want to go back and look at so many great knives over and over again. :)

    Fantastic knife V.P. !!!
    Some may not know that it is an incredibly rare model.
    The "600 Scout Knives" book by Joseph Kerr says it may be the rarest of all the official Boy Scout knives.

    Today I received this nice ulster dwight devine & sons ebony jack. About 3 3/8" closed. Unused and uncleaned with factory edges. Very nicely preserved piece.

    1. I agree with my mate Paul H! Paul I would be ecstatic to own that - I think to myself when I see older Jacks like this and \ or actually a bit older in Ebony etc that “ this is a True Jack” And this is what I feel when looking at this wonderful knife of yours. Love the Super crisp Swage work too.

    Thank you Paul and Duncan. I was lucky to grab this one before John did, he's pretty adept at getting those great BIN's from the bay. :)

    The Chunk91, beautiful old Ulster. I'd be hard pressed to trade that fine knife.

    V.P., nice bunch of recent finds, but those Schrade cut electricians models are especially nice.

    Fantastic parade of oldies, Kevin! I especially like that Schrade dogleg in ebony. :):thumbsup:

    My Saturday sharpening buddy just gave me this sweet Cattaraugus swell center whittler. Too messed up for his tastes, but I say, "Two out of three ain't bad." :D It needs some cleaning, but the blades have solid action.

    Most barrel knives are oval in cross section, so they don’t roll well.

    My wife called me at work last week from an antique store, asking if i had ever heard of a “Wards” knife. She picked up this beauty and a scout knife for me, i dig this knife! It is solid, walks and talks, and most important of all has never been taken to the grinding wheel. If you look close you can still see the “Master Quality” blade etch.

    Here is an AJ Jordan (1871-1929) that I have had for years, I love old ebony handled jack knives.
    Unfortunately this one has a lazy main blade, which is a shame because the blades are in excellent condition.

    A New York Knife Co/Hammer Brand jack (1880-1931), the scale was cracked when I got it, but it glued up nicely and makes an awesome user - I enjoy talking about old knives with people when i pull this one out to use.

    My brother gave me this, I*XL George Wostenholm England, 1891-1971, it still has the tweezers and pick. Blades are in excellent shape, but again, lazy main blade, another one I would love to have repaired.
