bkazz5,

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.

Thanks!
Keith

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.

hey,

would you consider selling or trading that mini-trapper sir? i am hung up on eye brand trappers at the moment, im searching for a replacement 5 1/2 closed stag trapper with gold colored engraving on master blade instead of the usual eye brand etching! i have a small collection of Cattaraugus and Robesons i want to sell or trade? anyway i was looking at a vintage Eye Brand item a friend sent me not to long ago ( old lock and skeleton key ) and noticed the word Garantie above where key hole is! I have a knife on my watchlist on Ebay that has that same word as its tang stamp! The knife is made in Solingen Germany and i was wondering if there were any connection to C Schlieper and Garantie branded knives?

Hello. Just joining AAPK I posted a pic of my Schlieper and was advised to seek more knowledge in this section of the forum. So, here's the knife my dad gave me that was gifted to him over 35 years ago. After reading what I could on the German Eye Brand, I have developed my newest obsession and am seeking to learn more about these as well as other pocket knives. Thanks in advance for everyone's input.

Very attractive knife. It is intended for dressing out hunted game. The blade with the thicker tip is used to open up the abdominal cavity and the hook is for pulling out the innards of birds. Perhaps you and your dad already know this ?
Is the closed length 4" ?

WELCOME TO AAPK !!!! Your first Schlieper knife is a very nice piece for sure. To my knowledge and review of catalog information, this knife and two or three similar knives with varying blade configurations were introduced in the mid to late 1980's. Your knife has exceptional stag handles and could be a great foundation piece for an Eye Brand and Carl Schlieper collection. Good Luck with your searching.

Lest anyone mistakenly think I had just ignored Joe's question: Official adoption formalities are currently underway. It seems joefm is soon to become the proud new owner. What could be a better way to finish off the old year and ring in the new than getting yourself a new knife?

Congratulations, sir; you picked a winner. I really like the gnarly stag handles on this knife and I know you will too. ::handshake::

Aloha & Happy New Year!
