Nice old whittlers fellas.

Barry do you think your knives handles were made by the Walden Handle Co. ?

Terrier and Robeson's numbering system is different. The following Terrier split back spring whittler has the number 125 stamp. Is this a production
number or can it be related to handle material, liners, # of blades Etc.. Is there reference material on Terrier numbers. Thanks Tom

Tom, that is a gorgeous Terrier in very high grade condition! Our resident expert Charlie Noyes will probably be along shortly and can tell you a lot more about it. That number on the sheepfoot blade is probably some kind of pattern number. What kind of camera are you using? Or is it a cell phone camera? Your tang photos are a little blurry. Even with less than stellar photos it is easy to see this Whittler is a beauty ::tu::

That is fine little knife there. Terrier knives - 1910-1916

Is there a number under the 125 stamp?

I think Charlie taught us that Terrier stamps were reverse of Robeson stamps.
That is the first three numbers were reverse of the last three.

Oh, I hate muddying good water.

This one came from galvanic1882 in the 2019 POS Roundtable. At first I just saw it as a piece of crap like the others he had sent. But the more I looked at it and coon fingered it, the less it looked like crap and the more it looked like a gem in the rough. This old gal is a real sweetheart. ::tu::

The handles are smooth bone and I can't find any flaws in them. All three blades have "Waltham Cutlery Co" stamped on them, a Swedge (both sides on the main) and they snap like gators. The two secondary blades both have half-stops, the main does not. There are two back springs separated by a brass wedge shaped liner. There are a couple of fairly major "bites" out of the edge on the main blade and a few other bug bites. The more I handle this little 3-7/16" beauty, the more I like it. For something that came in the POS Roundtable, it's great.
