Very nice John ::tu:: ... really an every day workman's knife... tough to find a vintage barlow that not well used... and why I have only one which also is of lower grade condition until something better comes along... been years and still waiting...
'til later....

Awesome KK scores at OKCA Dan ::tu:: ::tu:: ... They are all beauties in super condition but the Physician’s Knife is a stunner and really caught my eye - The KK stamp on bottom of rear bolster is very cool ::tu:: 8) ... nice full blades on the EO too ::nod:: ...

I looked and looked for this thread when I got this Keen Kutter back from Muskrat Man and couldn’t find it. Here is the before and after. I know the main blade is too short but it was all I could find w/ the same St Louis tang stamp. This is a solid knife and feels great in hand. The handles and bolsters were in such good shape I thought it was worth saving. Need to sharpen it and clean up that edge and it will be ready for anything.

Danno, Those are some of the finest pearl KK’s I have ever seen. Marvelous.
