Thanks Dimitri and Keith ... As an aside - the patent for this knife by Charles Platts in the 1920s was rather amusing - his claim was celluloid wouldn't have the issues with metal shields due to tarnishing and would be easier to engrave or stamp - if he only knew the future and the issues associated with celluloid ....
Keith - You have quite the tipped bolster collection ...
Great knives posted Gents! I personally think tipped bolsters are classy especially on a gentleman knife or Sunday carry. Heck all of them look great no matter the pattern.
Thanks for sharing.
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who leaves the world better than he found it; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in other's and gave the best he had.
A pocket knife is still an intimate personal possession of the individual who carries it and consequently deserves the best of materials, finish and workmanship in its production. (Quoted from Boker's 1928 cutlery catalog).
