    Hi Charlie.
    Thank you for that and everyone else in the comments on that wee Camillus. Charlie I left a note on your profile page.

    Good ol’ Jeff was first in - I have see better dedicated pipe Knives longer in build and instead if a Punch - these Pipe Cleaning knives have a long sleek pointy Spike! All this with a dedicated tamper at the end. Often the ones I’ve seen are English made.
    Never have I seen an Awl or Punch used on an pipe knife - but it makes sense!
    Thank you all.

    TheChunk91, Thanks, I love old knives but am a sucker for any other old tool as well.

    Gev, Fine looking old Case & Sons classic pattern.

    Duncan, Great to see you back and posting my friend!!!

    tongueriver, Wonderful example and look forward to seeing some better pictures when you get it.


    Here is a distinguished fellow at well over 100 years old sporting some of the most beautiful bolsters that any knife could hope to have.
    Marked "A.W. Wadsworth Germany", this old pearl handled half congress model has cast nickel silver bolsters which are integral to the liners (all one piece).
    Sheffield cutlers popularized this style (but with a different mechanical process) in the mid 1800s, but the cost was prohibitive for them by the later 1800s.

    Thanks, Peregrin. My wife has asked if I ever get tired of looking at knives? I replied (with a puzzled look) "no, I don't". :)

    Thanks Gev.
    I don't think much can hold Duncan down, but a good idea none the less to keep him in our thoughts as you suggest. :)

    Hang in there, Duncan, convalescence is hard, but necessary. I'm going crazy recovering from my neck surgery, so I have some idea what you're going through. My wife won't let me do anything, and I feel like a complete bum.

    This is a neat little gents' knife from the early Schrade Walden period right after WWII. Complete and minty, I'm fortunate to have it. Each side of the file has a different grit, one medium and the other fine. Beautiful workmanship throughout.

    Another beautiful knife, Herder; just superlative. Meg doesn't say much about my knives but I think I detect some eye rolling occasionally.

    I got this nice Orange Blossom whittler from Cattaraugus, its seemingly unused. I did pay up for it but I've wanted an Orange Blossom since going through chuko's tribute thread to the pattern. I don't think there are many other patterns that display a cutler's talent moreso than an Orange Blossom. Pictures are from my desk at work, not the best lol.

    One of my favorite patterns and for pretty much the reasons you cited.

    I need one from The Terrier Cutlery Company.

    Still searching.
