Very nice Roger! H. Boker made a congress whittler as well. This is not my knife; I borrowed the pictures from another post.

A pocket knife is still an intimate personal possession of the individual who carries it and consequently deserves the best of materials, finish and workmanship in its production. (Quoted from Boker's 1928 cutlery catalog).
