I was pleased to land this the other day, a big H&B clasp knife 5 1/2" closed, shows honest wear, plenty of patina. I like the H&B stamp on the blade and the 5 handle scale pins. Hard snap and half stop. I like these big ol' knives. Let's see your old H&Bs

I have had some H&B knives in the past and like the deep etch or stamp on the face of the blade also. They are some well made knives. I just picked the Warrior up last week. I cleaned it up a bit and the main blade so some snap left but the secondary blade is dead. Nice iron hardware all around and I love the pattern, bolsters and the way the spring come all the way around on the secondary blade. It's about 3 1/4" closed

Thanks Kaleb for starting the post.

It has been a couple years since anyone has posted in this thread.

Are there any more H & B knives in your collections or in your pockets?

FRJ, Its 3 and 3/4" long closed. I think if my house was on fire its the one thing I'd probably run back in to grab.
