Nice OVB jack Dale! ::tu::
You are right the OKCA December Mini Show is usually excellent.
Lots of knives and low prices.
I missed it last year. I hope to make it this year.

Thanks msteele6.........It's priceless to me due to my family's history with the knife.

I followed the auction on that HSB trapper. I thought that was a beautiful knife.

You got a nice one there.

Do you have any idea who might have made that for Hibbard?

paulsvintage that's a real beauty! Congrats. I think the knife's shield is the perfect compliment to the bone handles.

Paulsvintage, Cato; both are showing some fine knives. Cato, that E-Z opener looks to be very clean and fine lined. It seems that all H.S.B. OVB knives, whoever their manufacturer was, all seemed to be very precisioned. Appears they had tight quality control. Nice knives guy's! ::tu:: Bull

Cato, those two bone handled jacks are very nice.

I'm a bit skeptical of the Wharnecliff. That stamp looks quite modern. Could that be a Jim Parker special?

Time to get this thread going again! I have grown to have a bit of obsession with old Hibbards.

Here is a 3 1/2" bare head jack w/ killer picked brown bone scales and pinched bolsters.
