James, becoming a paid member clears a lot of stuff up!
Henckels, a hair under 3 1/2 inches, hammered pins, half stops, broken tip on small blade. I'm thinking pre-WWI? ??? Henckels, according to Goins lost the right to market their trademarks in the U.S. from some time in or around WWI until 1928. Goins does not show this exact tang stamp. Thoughts welcome.
Nice Henckels Calvin, I recently acquired a few Earlier Henckels recently, they are on their way too me - in saying that your example is Stellar! Gorgeous full blades!I would have to refer to a Tang stamp chart - they are as you say not full of details to try and date it but at a guess from looking at these Henckels I think you would be close with dates.
That is a beauty! Sometime between 1900 and 1969?
Thanks for the comments, guys! Here is a gentleman's stockman in what we Schrade a philes call a 'Slenderino,' because of its svelte profile. Schrade and Camillus (think pattern 69) and maybe others made these slim jims as an upscale item, sometimes with milled liners and so on. This example is almost un-used but has some water damage.
Dating a J.A. Henckels knife on a blade stamp alone is nearly impossible. You can really only date Henckels knives by factory catalog information.
Nice old knife which was made in the 1930s (model # 1868) and not offered again after WWII.
@tongueriver That’s a nice old stockman Calvin!
Yep! That's a sweetheart for sure Calvin, Staining or not - thats a darned cool Knife - it should really be here with me in New Zealand
Stunning knife, Cal! In such great condition for a "Cut"
Nice slenderino, Cal!!
Picked up a couple great old Jacks in the last week or so... a NYK barehead and a snappy Electric Cut Co; I just love these old knives
Those two are a couple of beauties! You just don't see jigging like that any more!
Your Schrade Stock Knife is quite the slender beauty; love the sunken joints and the jigging!
That Electric Cut Co sure looks like a NYKC product, too.
They were the Junior Varsity brand for NYKC Although quality-wise there isn't much difference. NYK bought Electric Cut Co in the eary 1900s and they manufactured all the ones stamped Walden, NY. Electric Cut Co was discontinued in ~1920.
Nice Kev, yes Lambertiana is bang on as you are Kev, Those Electric Cut Co are absolute top Notch, we touched on this before didn't we?....( scrummaging around in search ) aaah yes - here it is my friends.....
NICE ELECTRIC Mr Morgan
You should Know Mr Hilborn- you used to own it
Just it's Guardian until it's rightful owner came on the scene, or as I often refer to as "The Charlie Campagna of New Zealand"
Does that make me the Duncan Morgan of Canada??
