I don't have too many celluloid handled knives but this is my favorite. ULSTER, 3" pen, never used or sharpened. Master blade marked ULSTER/Knife Co./N.Y. and the small blade marked ULSTER/Knife/Co. The handles are irridescent(sp?) and change with the lighting.

Love the "waterfall" handles like yours. Here is a razor with the same type handle material.

No-name knife, looks re-bladed but I bought it (very cheaply) for the handle. Haven't seen this pattern before.

Just updating, I went ahead and sold the "Collection" to a Collector so the knives will be staying together.
