Re: K-bar sharpening stone

seems fairly old but the stone doesn't look to have been used much. Fortunate for you to have something from your dad. ::tu:: It's old all right, imagine how old it was before Ka-Bar whittled it into a pebble. :) Maybe not used much because of its size.

Re: A few big Queens...

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.

Welcome to the forum, shovelbill80. That is a great looking old work knife you have there.

I have these three. Two Delrin and one for real. Great knives.

It may be a trick of the camera, but the back side of the blade spines look like they have been shaved (angled)down to meet the flat of the spring when open. Thank you, Glenn. The slant on the tang of the pen blade is just a nick of a file assume. The whole tang is straight at the back. Actually th...

Re: HOLLEY LAKEVILLE

Joe; I tend to agree - not genuine overall, though the blades may be genuine. I recall in the '70's to early 80's, at knife shows, there were a lot of Holley knives floating around that had been recently made up using what I believe were original unfinished old Holley blades. Maybe someone can shed...

HOLLEY LAKEVILLE

I'm back again trying to get a solid answer on this very nice knife. I posted questions about this knife a few years ago. I haven't looked for the post. I wish someone would convince me that this isn't a real Holley, Lakeville. It just doesn't seem right to me. A little too flashy for Holley. I thin...

Re: KNIFE FINDS OF THE DAY

FRJ, an old woodworkers trick to remove dents in wood is to soak a cloth in water and place it over the area dented and apply pressure from a 'hot' iron and let the steam do it's work is raising the dent. Sometimes it takes several attempts to completely raise the dent. I hope this helps. Thank you...
