Naw, I don't have a soft spot for little knives,,,,are you kidding me? All cards are original and complete with the appropriate knives, as they appeared in the 1940s thru the 1950s.
Smashing and good to see you, Perry !!
GEC’s Cocobolo #18 Beagle
A pretty nice example of a Case Swayback in chestnut bone (CV). Carries small, with a near sunken joint.
I remember those displays from my childhood!!!!
There was usually one up front by the cash register at the five and dime on the corner where we lived in Washington D.C. before we moved out the Maryland suburbs. Aside from the .05 cent cherry coke at the soda fountain, it was a major draw for us kids to ogle the pocket knives. Sometimes there was a display of nail clippers and trim pocket knives with those sheet metal handles and little sheep foot blade and bottle opener.
That price is about right, as I recall they were bought with pocket change.
This thread has become a most enjoyable thread with so many wonderful Smalls posted!!!
Case 3.25" Stockman (6344)

Well geez, I posted this pic elsewhere today, but I just picked up this little Schrade 708B yesterday and couldn't be happier with my newest SMALL. (2.75")
Very Nice Examples!
Couple of Orange Blossom lobsters.
Thanks Jerry, Gev and vaporstang.
Great pictures of beautiful knives Charles. As always.
Not my picture, but it is my knife:
Ivory Ulster that I can't get a good pic of:
Funny - I have a box full of smaller Case knives - can't bring myself to carry them. I'm even a white collar guy during the week, and the Case knives I carry fall in the 3.5-3.75 inch closed range (6107W, ratcliffe muskrats, 63032's mostly) - they don't print too much & seems like my sweet spot.
Mike, the tip bolstered Henckels serpentine is just spectacular!
Yes jackknife, in fact these were referred to as change makers or takers. I also have an old metal, wooden and glass case that Imperial/Hammer Brand used throughout the 1950s and into the 60s. Also a counter piece that was to try and get your bit of change before leaving the store.
Little Robeson Pen from Grandpa's dresser drawer. I think it's from the '20s. Disappears in my pocket.
A few more.
Old Timer Pen LL knife and an older Shapleigh D/E Jack.
Boys Favorite metal dime store knife, you can still see some of the original brown paint on the handles.
B&M Schrade Jack!
