Interestingly, the very first Terrier I was ever offered was this pattern. Cindy Taylor had it and it was near mint.

I had no knowledge of Terrier prior to that and I didn’t buy it, as I had limited funds and was looking for “Robesons”.

I think she wanted ninety dollars for it.

That was in the very early 1990’s.

I snatched this one off Ebay two days ago with a Buy-It-Now price of forty dollars.

The blades are pitted and the backside handle is cracked.

Bruce Voyles showed a Robeson of this pattern in two of his books and called it a serpentine doctor's knife, probably because of that flat bottom bolster. I'm not sure it's a "pill buster", so I'm just going to stick with serpentine jack.

It will display well from the front side. ::tu::

Very unlikely I'll ever find a better example.

And, forty bucks. Why not?

Charlie I think that is a good buy at $40, cracks and all. I also think it's nice to have some knives with use and character amongst the minty unused ones.

Used knives are about all I’ve been finding lately.

Joe, it looks pretty much like that pearl serpentine jack you have, except for the bottom bolster being flat instead of round.
