    Nice find. Another fine detail on your new #33 is the Northfield name stamped onto the bail, just like on the Northfield #66's from a few year ago.

    This is a new oldie, just assembled a few weeks ago with parts from the 2013 run and the new Woodland Muslin covers.
    According to Chris at GEC they only made 24 of these, and with 420HC S.S. blades for the added corrosion resistance.

    After returning my Buck Forum 301 two separate times, I recently received this extremely nice example.

    I'm always on the lookout for additions to my Schrade wire jack collection. Stuart @Duckdog recently posted a large (4 3/4" closed) and he was generous in allowing me to acquire it. IMG_9278-01~2-1024x784.jpeg
    I forgot to add Stuart generously included a Parker Frost Lockback honoring the U. of NC TarHeels. For those who aren't familiar with the Japanese Parker Frost knives, do yourself a favor and take a look. Excellent quality and very reasonable prices. 20190523_165546-1024x595.jpg

    My latest, Great Eastern Cutlery #82 Northfield Possum Skinner in Jigged Elderberry bone. An excellent every day pocket knife.

    Oops, looks like the images are too large. i will figure out how to reduce them.

    I'm now on my fourth schrade 861 but this is the only one that's not minty. I cleaned it up a little and now it only lacks edge work. Snaps just fine and is solid. Hardly any blade loss. I really didn't need it but it's not bad for $23, and I just like it.

    Nothing too special. A used Vic red alox Classic for my keychain.

    Well, after several hours at the flea market I picked up a few items. This Norton stone was old stock but absolutely unused. But this old Camillus has to have some stories behind it. It needs to be sharpened but the springs are good and no discernible movement to the blades. I haven’t a clue how old it is but I’m guessing 40’s to 50’s? Maybe earlier??

    Nice pick ups Jim. I don't know camillus stamps very well but I am thinking that may be a WW2 era army air corps issue cattle knife.

    Jim, that's a nice cattle knife! 1930s to mid 1940s is the info I have on your tang stamp, so could well be WWII issue.

    I really liked the Conductor but, unfortunately (or fortunately, however you look at it) became trade fodder for my new J.B.F. Champlin

    Thanks Jeff. The guy had it in a case with all the typical junk you see at flea markets. I didn’t have my reading glasses so I had to ask him what the tang stamp said. There was another guy that had a jigged bone Remington 2 bladed Knife but he was a bit high so I passed.

    I went to the local outdoors store this afternoon to pick up a dozen of my favorite flies, I hope to be able to go fishing in the morning. I stopped by the knife display and saw this beautiful Case Mini Trapper on clearance. I just couldn't pass up these beautiful bone handles and really nice fit and finish... for just $25.00. :eek:
