    I think it's Bob Dozier's take on the Arkansas Toothpick pattern, that was likely a much bigger knife.

    It's similar to the Loveless New York Special that is a Bob Loveless pattern. The blade is pretty much the same. The handle contours are different.

    I read that some attribute the original Arkansas Toothpick pattern to an 1800s American blacksmith named James Black. Any relation?:):thumbsup:

    Still catching up!

    Thanks to all y'all.

    Thanks, Dean, and thanks to you, your brothers, and your father for your service. I had a cup of coffee with the Army beginning in the summer of 1972 at Ft. Bragg, NC. I didn't see any action, except for watching MPs round up 11-Bravos in downtown Fayette-nam.

    I'm totin' two cousins on this Twosday: a Böker 9023 equal end jack and a Primble 5733 senator pen (also an equal end), both 3 1/8" with sunk joints and from around the same period, early 1960s for the Böker and 1940-1968 for the Primble. Oh, and the Primble is Böker-made.

    The Primble does have a bit of fancy work - the backs of the brass liners are coined.

    Stuart and Mark, those are some stunning examples of jigged bone, just exquisite!

    I'm still toting my curly zebrawood teardrop.

    Love the Dozier. I’ve never met a Dozier knife I didn’t like.

    Tulips blooming in my neighbor's front yard... for some reason it inspired me to carry my red cadet.
    I am not sure why... may be because of the colors or because Holland is closer to Switzerland than Ontario ? :)
    Then on our afternoon walk my wife and I came upon this beautiful Trillium flowers, the symbol for Ontario.
    How does all of this relates together ? ... I don't have a clue :)
