What a great old knife that is, Lee. I really like that handle.
An honest old knife that makes my HSB look downright modern. ::nod::

I found this BUCKINGHAM MFG. CO., INC. 7089 pruning knife while doing some digging
years ago. It looks a 100% better now. :D

Used but not abused Case XX pruner, love how the red bone has turned orange from carry and use, still a lot of life left it.
