At the Cambridge Mn. Antique show today from one dealer I bought a J.Primble stag folding hunter with blade etch, unsharpened, a Western 532 with deer etch, and a Case XX 2229 1/2 slick black (Tadpole), all three for $200. Later I found an antique Wyeth Hardware Mfg. Co. stag fishtale jack for $100. One the way home at a rummage sale I picked up 5 much less valuable knives mainly because they were cheap ($50 for the lot) including a mint KA-BAR USMC 100 year anniv. in a Army sheath, a Uncle Henry mint 153 UH, a decient Schrade158OT, a near mint Uncle Henry lockback in it's sheath, and a Schrade 6-OT in really good condition in a beat up sheath.____Dave

Here's another shot of the cheapies. The 153UH sure has a nice sheath that comes with their knife. I have no idea why the USMC stamped knife come with an Army marked sheath. ___Dave

AAPK members find some beautiful specimens!
Here are a few (perhaps lesser) of my recent finds:
A Schrade Walden 804 that was in rough shape with a nasty melted spot and general delrin fatigue. Part of a 1 for 3 knife trade for a shiny, but worn, bone stockman from Japan. I sanded and CA glued the melted handle. It dried much darker than hoped. Your thoughts on staining the light spots would be appreciated.
A Premier bare headed celluloid jack. I liked the longpull, swedge and funky scales.
A GAK Victorinox with a tipped main blade. Less than an eighth inch was missing. I wish people would stop prying open things with thin blades!
A friend found me a great little Pal Blade Co swell end jack with nice bones.
All nice additions to my non mint eclectic collection.
I remain in awe of your finds,
MT-Vessel

I'll agree with Ray, that ought to keep you busy for a day or two! There appears to be several interesting ones in the pile and no doubt there will be interest in all of them. ::tu::

MT V all pretty but that first one and last one stand out to me. Both wonderful old knives. Congrats. ::nod:: ::nod::
