Very nice bunch of old whittlers, Greg. Nothing wrong with a repeat photo, in my opinion, anyway!

Here is a Friedr. Herder, Abr.Sohn ivory 3 1/4" sleeve board whittler with the crossed keys logo. Very nicely made including milled liners. Likely dates to late 1800's. The seller described the handles as "faux-ivory" but the cracks seen at 2 of the end pins are typical of the real thing and indeed it is faux "faux-ivory".
This is a good example of the excellent pocket knives being made in Solingen in late 1800's to early 1900's. Note quite to the extreme level of Jos. Rodgers or IXL Wostenholm workmanship of that time period, but close.

Nice knife with super looking bone Jdub ::tu:: ::tu:: ... I thought I had heard that Challenge Cut made Lakeside knives - bone looks to be very similar to Challenge in this case anyway..
