    This old guy is by a company called E.K.A. from Sweden. A customer asked me to clean it up and put simple G10 covers on it. This was his grandfather's daily carry. 20190521_161145.jpg 20190521_160928-864x864.jpg

    Thank you Harry. I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it. The truth is that the English gentleman who sold it to me said it was from 1940. I would gladly share with you any secrets as to dating a TEW. However, @Jack Black would be the one who has the knowledge, experience, and resources to properly date a TEW or other Sheffield knives. The only caution would be as he has stated, is that dating a Sheffield knife can at times, be a daunting task. Still, Jack would be the right person to ask.

    BTW... it was seeing your beautiful TEWs, that set me off in search of one.:)

    Success! The Blues won. Now, do you keep carrying the same three or wipe the slate clean? Your call Tom. The Stanley Cup is riding on your decision.

    Thanks Harvey : I have seen a couple of Older TEW Barlows up close and personal , but they were probably Ox Horn covers that were in rough shape but I have never found any wooden covers at all much less Ironwood . I really like the curve in the older clip blades which I could almost call a Turkish or maybe a California Clip . I have been trying for a few years to try to find something on Tang Stamps , but have not been successful yet . I would appreciate your showing of yours if you could . Carry your new Old TEW in good health my friend .

    You know Harry, it was actually that curvy clip blade, the Ironwood, and the bolsters, that immediately drew my attention. It was a lucky find.

    Whenever I find info on tang stamps or any such links to info, I will forward it to you. I would also think that Jack would be able to assist if you were to reach out to him. To your good health as well.

    Here’s the pile side view.

    Great pic Jose :) :thumbsup:

    Terrific trio GT :) :thumbsup:

    It's a great-looking knife Harvey, but I'd be surprised if it is that old :thumbsup: Why did the English gentleman say 1940, Britain was at war in 1940, and cutlery production was strictly limited to 'war work'. It was hard enough to get any vital supplies past the U-Boat convoys, let alone imported desert ironwood :rolleyes: ;) :thumbsup:

    Nice pic Vince :) :thumbsup:

    Morning folks :) Carrying a little horn today :thumbsup:


    (I can can date the stick EXACTLY to 1847 ;) )

    Can you please give a whole picture of the stick? It's a beauty (and so is the knife too)!

    Back to friction. I removed the string, it was getting in the way.

    I really should get something like the Hiroaki Ohta higonokami, I like friction folders so much these days.
