Those are real beauties, are they all Stainless?
Someone told me once (maybe Ray?) that all brown bone Schliepers are stainless, and all black bone Schliepers are carbon steel.

Here is one I stumbled upon and didn't think much about until I started looking for info on it. 2 1/2" / 4 blade congress / bone handles. Is this a rare find or just they're all tucked away? I see lots of the bigger congress patterns but no smaller ones like this?

Just Bob, the line of Eye Brand congress pattern knives available when this knife was manufactured started with the 2 1/2 inch models basically in bone, cracked ice celluloid and yellow celluloid handle materials. The 2 1/2 inch model is a bit more rare in that being so small it was not as popular as the larger models. The faint etching on the master blade along with the Eye stamp on the tang qualifies it as being a "Three Eye" Eye Brand knife dating approximately from 1970 through 1981. I think this knife would be a good addition to any Eye Brand collection. There are other Eye Brand enthusiasts here who might have additional info. or examples to add.

I have only one...a mini trapper, of course.
