They had one of these at the local hardware for $20 and I really wanted it, but the display model was pretty rough and I didn't feel like asking to look through all of them in hopes for a good one.
I may have to do that at some point if they still have 'em.
Really like the MOP lobster knife I picked up recently, a great quality antique knife with hand forged blades by Joseph Westby of Sheffield. As part of the same lot came another horn scaled knife which, though much later in date and with no mark other than 'Foreign' on the tang, I really like. I'm guessing it's from the 50's at best and although a relatively cheap Item when produced is of good quality with a useful sized, sharp main blade and really good snap. I particularly like the fact that the loose tweezers have their own compartment and that the scales, which I have had patched in by a friend, have been done in horn. Just goes to show that the cheaper knives can give just as much pleasure as the better quality, more expensive ones.

Reese Bose green jigged bone folder
Jess Horn ivory long pull folder
David, I don’t think I’ve seen a lockback from Reese that small.
Well, Jerry @JB in SC , it looks like my earlier post is a prime example of Fake News! Take a look at the back of the small Reese Bose knife below: while amazing in its craftsmanship, there is no locking mechanism whatsoever.
I must've been thinking about a separate Jess Horn lockback of the same size, but either way its just incorrect. I was in a rush and posted negligently; I fully understand and accept that this error could lead to a permanent or semi-permanent ban on posting here, maybe worse. At a minimum my Pulitzer will be stripped away. Thank goodness for the edit feature on BF - I've edited the earlier post and hope none of you will remember it!
