For what it's worth, I've read that the "Eisenhower" pen was Ike's favorite knife to give to visiting dignitaries, but the Case small stockman was what he actually carried.
That and the steep angle of clip point on the main blade are two reasons why I haven't carried my 309 companion near as much.
The size of the 309 is nice too , no better or worse for me but also nice.
That is a great one. I won the giveaway:
Cool collection, Jack.
I'm glad you like the little Camillus.
Another good thing about them is the Monroe Hardware versions are dated.
I'm not positive but believe they were ordering them from the 60's through the 90's.
If I had the mind It would be cool to collect every year.
Thank you John, a gift from Charlie
I have a few. Here are a Robeson and a Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett
This one just came in the mail, has nothing but a GERMANY etch on the back of the main blade but I was told it was likely made by olbertz.
Great tread everybody.
Jack Black - outstanding collection man!
Thanks for the correction. I wonder how much CASE had to pay to secure the president's signature as a blade etch?
These are outstanding examples, real quality .
Another Richards of Sheffield.
I don't know. What i'm sure is that today a president would have to pay for this.
Camillobuck, Camillus, and a tiny Boker stockman that I mistook for an open stock Schrade pen. Oops.
Added for scale. Yeah, that's it.
Three Case knives that may or may not qualify. All have 2 blades on opposite ends of the frame, so they have that going for them.
The Congress has it's own specific pattern, but the other two should.
I wish I had picture capability but I don't. My favorite small knife is a Wenger Patriot with metal scales. Completely open it's 7-1/8 inches long. Closed it's 3-3/8. The width is 3/16 of an inch. The large blade is 2-1/4" the small is 1-5/8". I've been carrying this monster around for 15 or 18 years and I'll be heartbroken if I ever lose or break it.
I could post a few Quill Knives if you think they'd fit here @Hickory n steel ?
