I've been staring at this old hulk for days wondering what I could do with it. I had no nickel to replace the bolsters with, but I found a big fuse at work that had a giant brass washer on it... ::hmm:: ....... ::idea::
I'm not sure exactly what the parent knife is called and I sure don't know what you'd call the end result. It was a lot of work to make if function properly, and I don't think I like working brass or wood, but I learned a lot from this one.
This stuff could get habit forming! :D
Anybody know exactly what it started as? All I know for sure is it was an Imperial. Date???
Thanks for looking, Shannon

Sweet Job!!! ::tu::

Judging solely from the nail pull, I would say it's a '36 - '52 stamp with the abbreviated "Prov." R.I. stamp. (no U.S.A.)
The blade configuration would make it an engineers knife.

I'm sure Miller Bro` will be along soon to correct me. ::paranoid::

Again, NICE knife! ::nod::

Thank you all...I am humbled.
Muskrat man, I don't even know for sure what "pinched" is :oops: I cut the lines in with a handsaw file. The flat spots on the ends are from carefully sticking it to a belt sander. You fellers will have to look over me because I really don't know poop from apple butter when it comes to knives.

the lines are often referred to as "threading" (no idea why) and the dimples at the ends are referred to as "pinched" it looks super ::ds::
