Re: Collections, Sub-Collections and Family Group Photos

You guys are showing some beautiful collections here. ::tu:: ::tu::

Here are some American - Winsted folders. Group of eight.

In the picture of four knives, the top knife is a BUD Brand, Winsted and the bottom knife is a Kendal, Winsted.
Surely they're cousins. ::woot::

I'm not sure what the covers are on that knife.

Re: Maple Syrup time for 2024

Great pictures, Carl, of your family and the process you all use to produce,
what I consider one of the greatest substances of all time, Maple Syrup.

I'm going to meet a pal tomorrow and have a show and tell at a coffee shop and I'm bringing the maple syrup for the coffee.

ICEL - Portugal

ICEL - Portugal; a knife I thought I would have posted somewhere on the forum but apparently not.
3 1/4" closed with shrinking covers.

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.
