Re: 125 years old and still cutting.

Since you mentioned drills, I've got two that are still cutting it. :mrgreen:

I haven't used these in a while, especially the smaller one. But I haven't been using my tools much of late.
These tools are as smooth as butter in spite of their age. ::tu::

Here you go, shovelbill80, a catch bit on an old elephant toe. (heavy brass insert)
The catch bit accommodates the large thick spear by pushing the thin pen to the side.

Is that a "Queen' thing or was it typical of other vintage knife makers? Thank you shovelbill80, double liners are used to accommodate blades in the blade well and for all I know there are other uses too. Not a Queen thing. Many cutlers use this technique. Check out early Imperial folders. You...

Nice old knife you have there, Newt68.
I wonder what the closed length is.

I have this knife at 3 3/8". I don't think it's ever been carried.
Could it be like yours?
Like yours, it has no pattern number on the back of the tang.
