Joe, is that from Southington Connecticut? It just hit me why I recognize that. I did some work at the Southington YMCA about 15 years ago. Installed some hardware and the membership software of the company I worked for at the time.

Yes, Jerry. Southington, Connecticut. Another good old, long gone, Connecticut cutlery. And there were many.

Nice big jack, Mark.
I wonder what gets those old Southington bones orange.

Here's a 3" pearl. Used a little. Dig them pulls. ::woot:: ::super_happy:: ::drool:: ::drool::

Sweet Southington's, Joe, really like the pearls and agree with you on the appeal of the long pulls on the last one. ::tu:: Also beautiful worn bone on the jack. Nice old brass handled jack, Tony! Very sturdy looking gunstock, Mark, and very nice bone and great bolsters on the English jack!

Nice Southingtons Mark and Joe ::tu:: ::tu:: .. a big old gunstock jack, English jack and a MOP pen - nice variety !!!

Joe - I haven't looked thru all my Southington knives but my Southington MOP whittler has long pulls through the tang and with the same curved tang stamp, but than again I have long pulls stopping at the tang on a big stabber jack and a swell end smooth bone and a match-striker long pull (not through the tang) with the same curved stamp.. My Southington MOP pen which I will get pics of eventually has long pulls but they stop at the tang and it is the straight-line Southington stamp... I'll have to check my others noting tang stamps - though in the end whether the knife has curved or straight-line stamps is most likely NOT going to lead to dating those knives during Southington's years in the business :lol: ... it perhaps was related to the cutler doing the work ::hmm:: ::shrug:: ....

Thank you, Dan and Lee.

Lee, I agree the curved or straight line stamp may not tell us much.
I think the long pull through the tang may indicate an early production.

Thanks guys!
