Lovely Bingham, David, don't see too many of those (myself anyway)! ::tu::
That is a beauty, Joe! ::tu:: I assume the handle covers are real tortoise shell?

Posted this in another thread already but it's one of the oldest, and probably one of the rarest, knives that I have.

Picked up 2 more Wabash Cutlery.
One in a green swirl celluloid.
The other one has George Washington and Abe Lincoln on the pile side. It has a KKK clansman on the mark side.
I won't show that in this thread.

That is a nice pair, David, really nice. George and Abe, backed with the Klan, wow! You posted a couple of dandies, back in early August also, before I was a member. I don't any any Wabash Cutlery, but one, or more, is on my list.

Thanks. I'm up to 22 for sure, maybe 2 more, but the tangs are to worn to tell.
Always looking for more!

Found another one from Rather & Co. This one is a small pen with wood handle covers and what I believe may be silver inlays on the mark side.
