The wharncliffe blade on this Sharp Fans 2009 club knife by Queen is somewhat unique...or perhaps "extreme" is a more appropriate description. The profile seems to be all "wharn" and no "cliffe"--a real pig-sticker, for sure. Handle is Amber Carved Stag Bone and measures 4" closed.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

Wow is all I can say, love the blade shape. Do you know if they made a single blade model.

Here is my one and only Wharncliffe. A Cattaraugus that I just finished rehabbing. It had bone scales put on at some point. I put the MOP back to the way it was originally.

Nice knives WVbladetrade (great score on that one) and Twhite ::tu:: ....

Here's a Wharncliffe but only in the sense of the handle frame - LF&C had this spear master Wharncliffe listed in an original catalog along with their other Wharncliffe knife selections... 3" closed and MOP (most LF&C pocket knives were black compo and on occasion you find MOP or wood except for their kitchen knives and fixed blade hunters that had bone and stag)... nickel silver liners.. still has "Universal" etch and blades look very full.. Given the MOP and nickel silver liners I am guessing on the higher end of LF&C knife prices back in the day...
