A CHALLENGE for you.

Postby Owd Wullie » Sat Mar 13, 2010 2:17 am

How about posting your CHALLENGE CUTLERY knives here?
3 3/8ths or so cell handled jack.

3 3/4ths or so ebony handled jack. The snap on the pen blade on this thing is amazing. It's almost a nail buster and I believe it still has some of the factory finish on it yet, probably because it is such a bear to open.

A rare stag handle Challenge jack, this one has the more unusual tang stamp. Don`t think they used this tang stamp for very long.

You gotta love them stag handles ::drool:: ::drool:: :D

I only have 2 Challenge knives one is a TL-29, which I don't have any pics of and the stockman below that appears to have been rode hard and put away wet on numerous occasions. It looks like the master blade was reprofiled, likely after being tipped.

It still retains a certain charm to me.

Tang stamp is a bit different than the others that I have.

You got that right about that cell being unusual. Never seen that pattern before.
