If you don't properly seal up your "samples" USPS might not deliver due to leakage.

Whoever is buddy2.2, please send me a private message. There is no one matching that name in the AAPK user list, but is was filled out in the form that way.
I contacted someone with a username close to that, but haven't heard from them nor have they read my PM.

Maybe use gloves. No, not kevlar cut-proof. Those certainly won't be necessary. ::uc::

Oh, wait a minute. I have to pay to ship this? I thought i checked the box on the form to have Kolvir handle the shipping and handling. ::undecided::

I got your box of goodies on the road today. This is the only trucking company I could get to take the box. Keep an eye out for it.

Got the group in from Corn Creek Cutlery today.

Can't say many are a POS.
IMG_20240325_155413.jpg
Hard Hat USA (Bear and Son for a promo products company in KY) 5' lockback (same as Bear and Son #97R). Doesn't look to have been used much, and a Buck 110 nylon sheath that fits it well was included.

I suspect Hard Hat fairly recently closed up shop (and Google Maps lists them as "Permanently Closed"). I had previously emailed them late last year about finding a distributor I could order from, and never got a response. The web address is a dead link now, even though it wasn't a month ago.

Google Maps still shows signage on the building (with Street View date of last year) , so the closure was apparently not that long ago.
IMG_20240325_162218.jpg

Ka-Bar Hawkbill, 1950s-ish going by the stamp and the fact it's got bone handles.

In pretty darn good shape. Going in the display case alongside my other old hawkbills.
IMG_20240325_162116.jpg

Rosecraft Blades Clinch River Jack.

Corn Creek Cutlery is the seller for the brand here also.

This is my first from the brand, after ogling them for over a year. I honestly can't find a single problem with it--great snap, smooth action, extremely sharp, and perfectly centered. Beaver Creek Barlow when the budget allows (next month's is primarily shipping to warranty some stuff).


Definitely carrying this one quite a bit. Should also be easier to sharpen than my old hawkbills.
IMG_20240325_162154.jpg

Victorinox "Pocket Pal", 84mm.

I have this one in Alox, but A: don't use it much due to it being dead mint, and b; it's a little slim. This one is just enough thicker to be comfortable.

IMG_20240325_162308.jpg


Schrade USA ST-2 Tough Chip.

The lock no longer works, and the slotted screwdriver and bottle opener are both broken. However, you can still buy most of these parts, as well as complete handles with tools for like a couple of bucks. Probably going that route.
IMG_20240325_162643.jpg

Schrade USA 3OT "Bearhead".

My favorite small Schrade, another (in worse shape) is often on me around the house. This one will be replacing that example, as my existing one has some play in the blade.
IMG_20240325_160134.jpg
IXL George Wostenholm, probably over a century old.

No snap, one blade broken, other can't be deployed. Pretty much normal for all my oldest.
IMG_20240325_162239.jpg
It appears that all three blades rode on one spring!
IMG_20240325_162249.jpg

Sharp (Colonial) 380 Medium Stockman. Currently, my first US-made Sharp. Pretty sure that these were SS, while the Colonial brethren were 1075.

In pretty good shape.
IMG_20240325_160300.jpg
Schrade USA SC505 "Ducks". New in box, complete with paperwork.

Part 2;

Utica Kutmaster Girl Scout knives.

This pattern used a green celluloid that was notorious for outgassing.

This one already is showing signs.
IMG_20240325_162425.jpg
Not so much, but I'll keep an eye on it.
IMG_20240325_162505 (1).jpg
Both will likely get rescaled soon.

Colonial Swiss Master.

Minty fresh. Never used, never carried. Much nicer than the worn out one I was given almost 20 years ago.
IMG_20240325_162738.jpg

Case paste. Going to be put to use soon.

I have some knives that weren't stored well by previous owners, both in moisture and near celluloid knives, and the bolsters have proven impossible to keep shiny.

Wow, if that constitutes a POS then Corn Creek's bathroom probably has a bidet in it! Congrats on a great group of knives . Not much negatively nosiferous in that pile.

I also collect a lot of diecast, and the stuff's built up over the years. I've posted quite a bit here:

viewtopic.php?t=68853

Matchbox reproduced (and updated) an older (late '80s) Convoy playset as an exclusive for Target a few years back, and the mat came alongside it. I had meant to use the set as a display but had no good place to put it 9thus, next stop will probably be the neighbor's kids). The mat, on the other hand, covers up the fact that the cabinet has needed a repaint for ages (and has a hole in the top that wires were ran through when a TV was on it). The tractor shed I've had for over 20 years (came with a huge ERTL playset I got from a family friend who ran a feed store), and the fire station is an older Life Like I bought secondhand, just to see how it went together before buying new and building it. Four years later--and it's been in the display ever since.

Well, most knife collectors love when they get a tracking # for an incoming shipment. In this case, thestrech71, that would not be the case...sorry.
