One of my all time favorites Mike!
I think GEC nailed this model. To my opinion it looks much better than the old time original pattern. The shadow model is the best. Great looking knife !
Some select stuff here lately And @mike Berkovitch grand to see you posting again
Here's one I like a great deal and is not difficult to find either which is also in its favour. CASE Swayback Gent in Chestnut Bone
Strangely enough when I started collecting, I didn't care for wharncliffe blades at all. 15 years later, I almost exclusively carry a knife with a wharncliffe main.
How could I forget this little guy....a recent arrival that was in my pocket. The Dan Burke collaboration knives were some of the best Queen has done in this millennium.
Some of my Pembertons
@JustinR lot of sweet knives you got there buddy
Northwoods Forest Jack - a Derek Bohn design built by GEC on their 54 frame, a bit of a stylistic variation from the standard wharncliffe.
Rustic Bohnncliffe / Barehead Mammoth
Winchester by Queen (Bill Howard era)
Top to bottom: 13 Congress Clerk, 61 Deluxe Congress, 62 Easy Pocket Congress
Over the years I’ve had a few wharncliffes pass through my hands but they never resonated enough with me to use or even to keep. I was around when GEC released the 47 and I passed on them (ouch!). I was recently gifted the Rough Ryder (a 47 clone) by Darren @waverave and I’ve been carrying and using it ever since.
Don't think I've ever posted in this thread
The wharncliffe blade is not my typical carry but there is no denying the aesthetic beauty. I have acquired several now.
The RR Alan posted is from a really nice production run. I had maybe 7 or 8 of them altogether so pretty decent sample size all things considered. Looking forward to seeing what they do next! (which is crazy when you think about it)
Here is one in Pau Ferro wood
Is this an optical illusion? Are these the same pattern/size or did they have two different size wharny whittlers in that series?
Two different sizes. Top: #39097, 3 3/4 inches. Bottom: #39081, 3 1/2 inches.
Wow, thank you. Good to know. I'll have to look for a #39097. What handles were available?
The GEC 62 Easy Pocket Congress is a rich seam of Wharncliffe Wonder
The ones I know for sure: Burnt Orange Bone, Antique Green Bone, Stag, and Mother of Pearl. I think there were a couple of celluloids, but I would advise against the celluloid as it is especially volatile on the Winchesters (and Case Classics).
It’s a bit worn but this ~100 year old Hammer Brand looks sort of Wharncliffie like.
