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
