Cargill on eBay

Postby 1967redrider » Wed Jun 24, 2015 10:30 am

Anyone see this Bob Cargill canoe on eBay?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CARGILL-CRIPPLE ... 0940120146

I happen to have one like it that came in a red flannel lined snap case. Found a stag trapper too.


*Edit- I should add the eBay knife is not mine, not bidding either.

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.

Here's a couple variations of Cargill/Cripple Creek Whittlers and a Canoes.

Those are gorgeous! Is that second from the bottom one a lockback?

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?
