Bob Cargill is the man behind the Cripple Creek Knife Brand. He started out making one of a kind custom knives and eventually started making special order runs by hand under the Cripple Creek name in 1981. He specialized in high quality hand made limited runs for clubs and organizations. The brand was later sold to Blackjack Knives of Effingham, IL who commissioned Queen Cutlery to produce them in larger quantities.
Yeah I missed out on that one. I got outbid in the last few seconds. There was also a nice 1983 cripple creek buffalo tribe gunboat canoe up for auction and I missed on that one too. I was hoping to win them because you don't see a whole lot of cargill canoes come up very often.
It is a lockback. There are a few more pics of it posted under the forum General Knife Discussion, The Whittler Page. It does resemble a copy of an old remington pattern and I beleive Schatt and Morgan came out with a similar pattern. I think I remember in another AAPK form this pattern referred to as a Norfolk Whittler?
