    Thank you all for the comments.

    Duncan and John, one of my favorite things about old schrades are their clip blades with the long swedge that extends over the pull. Very attractive.

    Paul, beautiful Schrade Cut Premium Serpentine Stockman—right up your alley!

    Here is a NYKC locked back folding hunter (pattern no. 187) I recently acquired. I have been on the look out for one for several years. I have two (obviously NYKC manufactured) examples that are branded OVB Spencer Hibbard Bartlett & Co. and the other a Zenith Marshall Wells Hardware Co.

    The NYKC example is in excellent used condition with a full blade, no cracks or splits in the bone handles (that I can see even under magnification) and tight lockup. The pick bone handles are especially interesting to me. This, I believe, is representative of an earlier made knife. It also does not have the arm-and -hammer logo/trademark that you see on many knives. My guess is this knife is pre circa 1910. The Biddle Hardware Co. Catalog of 1908 page 900 of the NYKC section show this exact knife with pick bone handles in the artist rendering.

    The other two example do not have pick bone handles but utilize a sort of divot style jigging pattern that some suggest might have been accomplished using the George Schrade jigging machine.

    Anyway, thanks for looking and any comments or further insights or corrections are very welcomed.

    Thanks Charlie. Great to see you posting in the “Old Knives” thread again my friend!! Just hasn’t been the same without you! I have been more absent than not the last couple of months. Been involved in some significant home remodeling projects. Just about done so will be back on the Forums especially this one more often now.

    Can't help with dating the knives Lloyd but what a wonderful trio of large hunters, does not get much better than that.

    Don't know. I inherited a cigar box full of worn out pocket knives from my grandfather who passed away several years before I was born (1952). My grandmother found it in the attic and gave it to me. This looked like the nicest one of the lot but there is nothing discernible in terms of maker marks.

    Lloyd- those three knives are simply outstanding matey!
    I very much like Pick Bone full stop, all the Jig work in those knives keeps you very busy looking at them.
