Nice knives fellas.

That bone on the jack of Mark's looks like early NYK,Schrade,etc. bone

I think these early companies had the same sources

I recently posted my Empire Stabber Jack and got some photos of my Southington Stabber Jack. Closed length of 4" and ebony handles with all metal components... long pull on a spear point, stamp is abit worn on top of curve, and while the choil indicates little sharpening it is the way it was sharpened with emphasis on front half of blade.. funny thing is I originally thought someone "played" with the choil to make it look less sharpened but looking earlier at many Southington knives it appears that is how other Southingtons were made in terms of a steep and well formed choil... nonetheless - well used but not abused knife with deep double swedges & still hard snapping and tight! Again I like Stabber Jacks - just remind me of jumbo Boys knives :D ...

Thanks Greg - much appreciated ::tu:: ::tu:: ... I like Southington knives but as you said hard to find them in what I consider decent condition - seen quite a few that didn't deserve consideration :)

Great Southington's everyone, not an easy knife to find.

Here is an unusual large jack I picked up awhile back, bone on the mark side, stag on pile side, straight line tang stamp on main and curved stamp on remnants of the pen. No evidence knife has ever been apart.

Here's another Southington that caught my eye long ago ::nod:: ... A teardrop Jack in MOP at 3 & 3/8" closed - that is a fair amount of MOP on this knife and one does not see that many jacks at this size with those handle covers :) ... Long pulls on both blades and nice shield... The knife was no doubt used but was not abused (and probably lightly cleaned but the liners still retain lots of original finish) :) ... Thanks for looking!
