That's quite the haul there buddy!

If I might ask, what brand is the rigging knife with the marlin spike on it? I've been considering a similar looking one on the bay, but the seller won't respond to questions about it ::huff::

and that little wood lockback is pretty cool. I've been into the little lockbacks lately. What brand is that one?

That's my Etsy store where I sell old knives and sometimes handmade knife accessories to support my knife habbit. Thanks for looking my friend. ::tu::

My finds from my favorite store in town.
The yellow is solid bolster no brand, white tipped bolster is a camco, the other two are Colonial. The corkscrew knife i picked up because it says fine cut made in usa. The western i assume is a bird and trout of some kind or another. The second picture is how i found it. Wrapped in electrical tape and in a banged up nylon sheath patched with neon green zip ties ::tear::

Found Jean Case Cut Co Little Valley NY knife. Woodcraft pattern blade. Went to a black powder rendezvous over the weekend. Thru the years have found some good knives in such venues.

I've never seen anything like your first knife, Rey, what does the "switch" do, press down on the liner to release it perhaps? ::shrug:: Thx!

The knife is one of a series of white handled knives made for the BOY SCOUTS. The switch is to lock the blade in the open position.
Ah ha, very interesting and way cool too, thanks!

Mark - It’s a 4.75" 1-Blade Camillus Folding "Adventurer, The rawhide thong is genuine and the knife originally came with a black leather belt case in an early version of clamshell packaging. BSA#1372, c1980-1983.
Thanks, Tom, I found it fascinating but didn't know anything about it having not seen one prior to that one.
My accumulation has a number of, I'll say "odd" for lack of a better term, models from around the world, and whenever I see one I haven't seen before it peaks my curiosity, especially if I don't know anything about the part of it I found odd in the first place, just like Rey's did. On my first look a wall mounted light switch came to mind, followed by "what's a light switch doing in the handle of a folding knife?" At that point I HAD to know! lol!
Rey supplied some info also.
BTW, in one of Rey's posts he or somebody typed his name as "Rey", yet everyone but me calls him, "Ray", would you kindly tell me which is correct? ::shrug:: He nor anyone else has ever corrected me yet everybody still calls him "Ray". ::hmm:: Thx!

Mark: to clarify; although my given name is Ray, l had to open a new fb account and could not use the original spelling for some reason. I use the name rey and it works well as l have a fb page called, REY ZHOREJ KNIVES. Just a play on words.

Today's stuff: an Explorer 11-342 lockback, a Fairmount cutlery with cel handles that have abalone &' pearl chips embedded. Last is a equal end pen that has a baseball & bat shield that looks like imitation tortoise shell. The first letter of the stamp is obliterated the rest reads:' -ELLMAN BROS. MINNEAPOLIS JAPAN in 3 lines.

Ahh ha!
We were both right!
I was certain I'd seen "Rey" somewhere and it was making me crazy, thank you so much for the clarification, and RAY it is!

I had a similar problem with F/B when I tried to join. I'd made a mistake I noticed AFTER I'd submitted my application, so I back tracked to fix it, at which point it totally confused the powers that be at F/B and they said there's already an account with that information. I spent hours trying to clear things up but never did. One would think that a company worth billions could figure out something as little as typing mistakes, but apparently not. I've come to realize that whole deal was likely a blessing though, since I barely have time for our forum let alone spending time on F/B!

Thanks a bunch for clearing that up for me, RAY, you've put my troubled mind at ease! ::handshake::

I love your Explorer, Ray, everything about it is so BIG n' FAT, and shinny of course! ::tu::

Very cool old Case history there. 😎 👍
