    Another unexpected postal. :D

    The person responsible shall remain anonymous until I hear otherwise.
    (HINT: He is exceptionally generous, he lives in North America, somewhere west of the Atlantic Ocean, east of the Pacific ocean, and south of the north pole. :) )

    Circa 1978-1982 Old Timer 7OT, with no "+" on the tang stamp, with the proper brown/tan lather sheath.

    Schrade "Cope" (no model number) two spring Copenhagen jack knife, with plain edge clip point, and serrated sheepsfoot blades, 3 5/16 inch closed.
    :D
    The 7OT (in it's sheath) is currently on my belt.

    Yep, I bet you have a big smile on your face, too. :)
    Lucky you!
    Those are two nice knives, alright.
    The Cope jack :thumbsup: is my favourite, being a big fan of Copenhagen snuff. Man I love that stuff.

    Edited to add: That 858 looks like a very capable knife too.
    You're on a roll, @afishhunter :rolleyes:

    I have one of those knives, the exact same. It is a handy and versatile knife. Mine was singin' sharp when I got it, and still cuts well now, as cutting on plates (my beloved wife) hasn't dulled the entire edge.
    I hope you enjoy using it.

    We have a bunch of those Rada knives in the kitchen, in all shapes & sizes, and they get used every day. It doesn't matter how dull you get them, a few passes on a sharpening steel & they're good as new.

    Yep. Most happy. :D
    I am 99.9998% sure the 7OT/858 pairing is my EDC for at least the remainder of 2020. :D

    And they're so thin it almost doesn't matter if they're sharp. Most of mine are from estate sales, but I've bought a couple new.

    I llike their wheelie sharpener for roughing in edges.

    Just arrived in the mail...
    Boker Clip Blade Barlow in Blackwood.
    It's a wonderful knife with very nice Fit & Finish. Just a bit smaller than a GEC #15 but really reminds me of it. There are micro gaps in the liners that can only be seen when holding it up to the light and looking through the blade well. The transitions between bolsters and handle slabs are pretty decent, but could be smoother. The blade is centered, with a solid 5 pull, has a solid half stop, and wonderful Walk & Talk. The blade also has a nice shape and is ground evenly with a nice edge. The pins are also well finished and smooth. Finally, although I don't necessarily like the shield on a Barlow, it is pinned and very slightly raised, so it's just okay. Over-all this is a very well built knife that should rival the GEC #15, especially given its price and being readily available. This one is going to see a lot of pocket time and I'm super happy to have it... especially at the price I paid for it. ;):thumbsup:

    Edited to add... the blade is 440C steel, for the stainless guys here. :cool::thumbsup:

    Glad you like it, one of the best ways to think how someone likes a knife is pocket time, and this sounds like it is going to get plenty.
