Picked these two up yesterday. To my knowledge, nothing fantastic about them, I just liked their looks and they're in very nice shape. Neither one has been used; however, the Normark has some light scratches on it. The handle looks to be black phenolic on the Normark, and the Forester 'looks' like bone. I found one other identical Normark fillet knife like mine on ebay, and the seller stated it was 30 years old, but didn't provide any substantiating info to back that up.

I don't know a lick about these knives or who actually made them. The word "Forester" on the small hunting knife I am assuming is a title given to the knife for those who work in Wildlife Management or forestry. ::shrug:: It has no other markings. It's in great condition and doesn't appear to have ever been used. The sheath is pretty flimsy, but I believe it's original to the knife.

If anyone has any information on these two...I would appreciate your knowledge base and would like to learn a bit more about them. The only info I came across regarding the Normark knife was about a maker of lures, Laural Rappala long ago and eventually had a contract with Martiini to make fillet knives. And then, Rappala eventually contracted with two other individuals who started the company named "Normark." That's all I could find.

Edit: It finally hit me to conduct a search here for the Normark and Forester. Duh! ::dang:: Nothing came up on the Forester, but Sanders Knives sold a Normark like mine. It was titled the "Black Medallion" For what they sold it for, I'm a happy camper for what I paid for mine. ::groove::

Nice group there, Scott. ::tu:: I've never seen a knife, fork & spoon set like that. It's pretty unique...and comes w/a case. The fisherman pliers are different too...for me anyway. Some nice looking knives to hopefully get some decent cleaning on and spruce up a bit.

I finally have something to post!
The old Premium Stock and the big silver gents were actually bought from a member of my club. I just figured I’d better give the stock a place in my ‘Zoogirl’s Retirement Case For Old Bones’. ::shrug:: I do like my HOK’s.
The Richards, Imperial, little Winnipeg Canada souvineer and the gold gents all come from Saturday’s swapmeet. I also scored the full pack of PAL blades and Richards scissors. ::ds::
According to the bail, the gold gents on the chain is actually gold filled. The name might be Anson, on the bail as well.
Can anyone ID the bugle logo on the big knife? It has me stumped.
Oh, yes, I know the Imperial is short a bland. I’ve been wanting one of the gold and blacks, and for five bucks, it’ll do as a place holder. ::tu::

The 1920 penny is for the granddaughter on the way. I have 1908 and 1912 for the other two and need to get a 1915 for my son’s stepson. I just thought it would be cool to have something 100 years old when they were born.

Congratulations. Are you excited? Is this the first grandchild? What's the due date?

Yep, pretty happy!
No, there are two ahead of her, now 11 and 7. Plus, there’s my younger son’s little stepson, who’s 4 and looking forward to having a little sister. Well, so far...

It's an Imperial USA Boy Scout Camp Hobo Set....the really cool thing is the button has the BSA eagle on it. Very cool.
Everything's for sale.... ::tu::

This is my feeble little pile from our adventure at the flea market:
009.JPG
Todays finds were across the spectrum of knives. I rooted through several piles and rescued several, felt sorry for them, a couple I don't even know their names. There is not enough tang stamp for me to identify the old 3 3/4" equal end.
1st there was a table with a box of tools marked 25 cents each or 5 for $1. Lots of junk but digging deep I came up with 4- 1/2" drive Craftsman sockets and 1/2 inch SK combination wrench.
Then I found another box full of all sorts of Zombie Killers and Chinese wannabe tacticals. Rooting through it, hiding down in the bottom was Gerber 650, Portland Oregon USA, some sort of stain on the blade, looks like a factory edge still in place.
There is a Ranger, a Cattaragus 212466, a well used Boker USA Muskrat(both blades are equally worn out :) ) unknown equal end, a well worn Camillus with a beautiful shield, an unsharpened Hammer Brand vertical USA, and 2 small Old Timer USA Schrades with full blades, just plumb nasty. Need a bath! Oh yeah there was a nice little whet rock that was thrown in on one of the transactions. Last is the Scout knife that didn't make the family photo, it is pretty raggedy but has beautiful bone. The main blade was surely a spear point with a long pull and there is evidence of a swedge, the punch/awl is pertect as is the cap lifter/screwdriver. Sadly there is only the tang of the can opener. :( We couldn't make out the tang on what's left of the spear, all the letters I could see were in a circle. The owner said it has to be a Remington and I could see enough to feel confident it wasn't. When I got it home I opened the cap lifter and there was a tang stamp in perfect condition, CRUCIBAL KNIFE CO
This one missed the flea market photo op, it was hiding in my pocket along with my Case and car keys.

Sounds like you and Scott had a good time and both found some pretty nice interesting stuff and didn't have to arm wrestle each other for any of it. It's nice to see you two playing well together, although from the picture Scott posted, it appears he was staying a step ahead of you.____Dave
