    Dang that NYKC jack is awesome. I can't quite put my finger on it, (not meant to be a knife pun) it has a really good balance of nice patina and a good amount of shininess to it without overdoing it... if that makes sense lol

    I have had a few new arrivals, but haven't quite had the energy to take any photo's as of lately- the last couple of days dashing in and out of the Sun and Rain Bursts have at least keep up my Daily exercise requirements that's for sure :D

    I really like this old Knife, from what I can gather from Schrade's Catalog E, this is pre 1930's #1253Chain.

    Schrade Cut Co, Walden, N.Y.

    A boys Knife with its intact original Chain, absolutely gorgeous Pic Bone ( Pre Peach Seed? ) - Well the Face side seems to be Pic Bone- but I recall Charlie and? having a dicussion of another type of Jig from Schrade - now @waynorth Charlie did you call it Basket Weave?- Im not sure- But the Pile side Jig work seems to join up a lot more-so than Pic Bone Jig? Comments anyone?

    The Blade has wear but I just think this whole unit is absolutely Great! I tried the fastener on a Button of my Shirt- Perfect - then slotted the knife into my RF Pants pocket - What a brilliant idea this was to have as a safety - at least Im guessing this to be the correct way of wearing the Chain?

    Schrade's Peach-Seed - Love it! another small Boys Knife I think post 1930's ( just ).

    The Factory Highly Polished Blades were extremely difficult to photograph in the direct light- I just couldn't afford the time in setting up properly so my apologies.

    Henckels, an early Folder - unfortunately the Pen Blade is broken, but I couldn't resist the Beauty that this Old Lock-Back Knife still exhibits, and I think in an Henckels Display - this Knife would Not look out of place in anyway- especially with that stunning Stag!A used and Honest Knife and imo a Grand Knife...

    This Knife has a Massive-Thick Spring - co joining the Lockback and joining perfectly with the Thick Spine of the Main Blade - beautifully crafted.

    Heres a Henckels that I am very pleased to get hold of, Stamped, Henckels Zwillingswerk, a Knife made for the more Local Market? also stamped Deutsches Armeemesser - speaking to our friend Herder- he let me know that this doesn't not mean its an official German Military Knife- rather one that they could purchase individually.
    The making of this Knife is something else - the Stag is simply Gorgeous- the small touches added to such a knife is impressive- every Brass Liner is Coined, note the nice touch of a Fancy Shoulder to the long slim Marlin Type Spike, even the tops of the extra wee tools- the Pick and the Tweezers that slot into the Stag Handle are still there- and have wee fancy shaped tops, the walk and Talk of this Knife is superb and I am so happy to add this great Knife to my Henckels Collection....

    There's a LOT of Metal packed into this Stout Frame!

    You can see that nice "Shoulder of the Spike- Top Right...

    The Main is a Lockback- and to close it- one must depress the "Hoofpick" Hinge down to release the Blade.

    I really really like this Knife! Hope you have enjoyed viewing it!

    I have some nice Sta-Sharps by Camillus to post up soon!

    Beautiful Schrades and Henckels knives, Duncan!!:thumbsup: Thanks for showing them to us!
    That last Henckels can't be an official Military issue, unless it's for officers, or some elite corps!!
    It's too nice!!!:)

    Talk about some great knives shown recently...
    TheChunk91, fine old Schrade Barlow and very neat to see the original "beighly" etch on the blade.
    Kai76, That's a stunning old knife, teardrop models have such an elegant look.
    North Shore, A wonderful large hunter model and another of my favorite patterns.
    Campbellclanman, You sure come up with some grand knives. The Schrades are certainly nice, but my eyes were drawn right to the Henckels pair.
    Especially to the "Deutsches Armeemesser" model, what a fantastic work of mechanical art.
