Greg, your Empire cattle Knife is a super nice example. Equal end knives with a spear blade have a really nice symmetry to my eye. ::tu:: ::tu::

Lee, your MOP pen knife is gorgeous. ::tu:: ::tu::

I plucked this one off of the Bay last night. I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival. Two very fine old firms appear to have collaborated on this pearl Wharnecliffe gentleman's knife at 3 1/4 inches. Walter E. Hayward Jewelry and Empire Knife Co. I can't wait to see it.
