Nice Challenge pruner Lee, hard to find in that condition.

Picked up a nice 3 5/8" sheep foot Jack, bone is dyed very dark brown or black. Pen blade unusual that it is close to a full sized blade, bear trap snaps.

Thanks John ::tu:: ::handshake:: ...

Nice find on that Challenge jack John ::tu:: ::tu:: ... I'm just guessing so please keep that in mind - but I am thinking this Challenge jack had 2 full sized blades instead of a master & pen blade when it was built - pretty cool imo 8) ... The spear blade just looks like it may have been abit longer at one point but hard to tell in photo... you know better in hand for sure... either way a NICE 8) find and score ::tu::

Note as edit - I meant spear blade not a clip blade ::facepalm:: .. I fixed it above..

Thanks Lee, I'm thinking the same as you, I think the pen was a full-sized blade and someone wanted a pen or broke and reshaped.
