    Sweet Cattle punch ! Looks like a Camillus made knife to me. Probably from the late 40's would be my guess.

    Thanks for the help identifying the cover material of that Case Barlow, Dean; my eyes aren't what they used to be. :rolleyes:
    Thanks also for the canittler bone compliment. :)

    Sublime cattle knife! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the good words, JJ. :)

    A half-dozen delightful blades! I especially like the bottom knife with the big spearpoint! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Definitely a desirable duo, Paul! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Hey, I'm surprised to find I have no more quotes compiled here! I was expecting a whole boatload more, but technology gives and technology takes away.:(

    Thanks Steve. The tang stamp confirms its a Keen Kutter with an EC Simmons stamp. I’ve seen a pic of an early 1900 Stockman that is somewhat similar but haven’t found the exact match yet

    That's correct, Simmons Hardware didn't make their own knives but contracted them from knife companies like Camillus under the KeenKutter brand name.

    Rain all day here, but still needing Thursday to be productive. Got the 93 and a new to me Craftsman 4” stockman today. My father-in-law is in town and gave me this stockman he picked up for me because he knows I love these knives. It don’t suck to have good people in yer life!

    Also, the closest thing in my pockets to an everyday carry~ one of my Wengers.

    Maybe I should just stick to TL-29s!! Never been burned on one of them when buying on the internet, even though I have dozens. There’s just something so straightforward and honest about this pattern.
    I bought this one for less than $10, thinking it was going to become a one blade jack in elk or bone. Well, looking at it last night, I realized I can’t do it. It’s basically virgin~ the bolster has a spot, but the blades~ never sharpened, never used. Until now:D
    And truth be told, there’s just no way I could improve this knife.

    Which is all a lead up to a request for help. Some months ago, a member posted in this thread~ maybe 6 months or more ago. He is not a frequent poster. He spoke of having served in the armed forces, carried a TL-29, and wished he still had one. Well, I want to send him one, so if anyone remembers that poster, or if he’s reading this, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
    @Peregrin ~ if this is the wrong thread for this, pls let me know. It was in this thread that the member posted, so I thought this might be the best place for him to see it.

    That’s a high quality stockman, Jon. I had one, and gave it to my son for Christmas, along with a SAK, and a Camillus TL-29. I figured with just those three, a guy could be set for life.

    Take good care of the 93, and you’ll be passing it on to one of your boys before you know it.

    These two again for work. The small Tinker is always with me as well as a lockback. Usually a 5OT.
