It was obviously well loved to have been used as much as it was. Great old relic. ::tu::

trail wrote:Great idea for a thread, and a fine knife to lead it off, M.B. I only have one that meets the criteria, and that is only if you consider the file to be a blade. This Morley is a classic example of central European knifemaking. Like the Gebr. Muller, it exudes old world craftsmanship. The number of hand steps that must have been taken to make this detailed and well-fitted old knife are something that we don't see in factory, or even most custom, knives today. W.H. Morley and Sons were imported by A. Kastor of Camillus fame from 1913 to 1927. They were made in Germany and Bohemia, which was part of the Austrian Empire until the end of World War I, and afterward was the independent state of Czechoslovakia. This knife shows that even a blind pig finds an acorn now and then, as I picked it up off ebay for a song without even really knowing what it was.

I just picked up a Morley same tang stamp but in a half congress,one blade has a long line over NEW YORK like a Camillus the other blade has GERMANY on it.Anybody know what is up with this???Nice bone scales ::super_happy::

Forgot I had this one. This mark has been posted before but is supposed to have a lion stamp on the pile side. Mine doesn't. Don't know what that means but it fits this thread so thought I'd post it. I guess it's a sleeveboard with milled liners and fiery pearl which I can't seem to capture with my camera. Slim.

Just picked-up this little gem during my day out yesterday. Sterling scales hallmarked Birmingham 1897. Nice snap and half stops. :)

This knife has been in my family for near 100 years. My great grand father bought it used around WWI. It is in mint condition with the original leather pouch (worn). the main blade has Carl Lobbenberg etched on it in block letters. He may have been a jeweler in Berlin. It has 23 blades and 2 insertions. The knife looks exactly like one made by Feist in Solingen. It may have been made on contract for Carl Lobbenberg. I would like to sell it to a collector. I can be reached at gwilliston@yahoo.com

I am reviving a thread from years back with this 3" 6 blade pearl multiblade marked: "A.Kastor/& Sons/Germany". Very nicely made knife, at least 100 years old, maybe even 120 !

These Richards are all on the useful side!
The oddball one seems to be the eldest, going by the can opener. I don’t know how you’d describe the scales. Over ripe banana?!
I must be celluloid, but it has little shine to it. The blades are weird too. The knife blade seems to be carbon, the can opener and bottle opener/screwdriver are stainless, I think, and the punch or awl almost looks chromed.
Anyway, I thought I’d just post the Richards, for now.
