I spent too much on it, but I’ve been hunting the old barn chestnut #15 boy’s knife for three years.
Sabre grind spey? Very nice! What is the handle material?
Bermuda green bone. From a web site...."The handles are Bermuda green bone embellished with graceful, heart-shaped leaves twisting and turning with brass pins and liners, and scrolled nickel silver bolsters, as well as a nickel silver Case Filigree script shield."
Very nice. I like the scroll work on the bolsters too.
I'm looking forward to it, hoping it lives up to my expectations. There will pics up Nov 1 (barring a usps fumble)
Thanks my friend! I said 1950’s maybe but after checking a little more it could be anywhere from around 1954 until 1973. The seller was guessing ‘50’s. Here is a picture of the pile side.
That one would be in the range of around 1964-1973. Nice knife.
Ok, this should probably be the last knife this year except for the BF knife. A 4 line Camillus.
Harry, your daughter must be a lovely person with impeccable taste to send such an outstanding gift.
On a side note I'm blessed with 4 daughters and here is a Christmas gift from my youngest. We all had a good laugh when I opened it and yes I wear it from time to time. Keeps me humble.
Fine low riding blades on those, fine low joints too, fine everything Very sleek look.
That's pretty good.
Thanks! It is supposed to be here Monday. I am pretty excited, it is supposed to be “NIB”.
It's on its way (or similar), LionSteel Collector Knives Roundhead Spearpoint Ram horn.
I ordered another Ontario 498, you just can't beat them for the $50 and with a little work I find them preferable to the KA-BAR 1217.
I'm going to approach the refinement / minor improvement on this one a bit differently than I did last time.
Got 2 spear point boys knives on order, one should be here shortly, the other one hopefully before Christmas. My first boys knife, have been looking for a while, but just hard for me to get, or too expensive for my budget with all the conversion and postage. .
Terrain 365 Otter Barlow on the way. Pictures when it arrives.
I just started volunteering at a community something agriculture garden. We're harvesting leafy greens next week. Obviously I needed a new knife. Rada's tomato-slicer. Should be here tomorrow.
That picture literally made my mouth water....
After seeing all the pictures of the barehead Tribals in the other thread, I broke down and ordered a CV pocket worn whiskey bone Tribal Lock from Mike. I had some points saved up, so that helped the "bottom line"..... looking forward to getting it...
I should have one of these in my mailbox later today.
