Gino,

Hatch knives are scarce. I have been searching for a decent Hatch with a battle ax shield for some time.

Thanks Scott, glad you enjoyed it. Been busy as heck for a while(and just getting over a flu bug :( ) and thought I`d check back in and see what was going on and show a couple more oldies that I got pictures of. 1st is an old Joseph Rodgers-Cutlers to His Majesty(No.6 Norfolk Street Sheffield) and the second is an old James Barber ERA. All of the blades in both knives are tightfitting as heck and have incredible snap both ways. I`d really like anyone to chime in about any history or info on them since I can`t find much in my book. The Rodgers is bone handled and 3.5 inches long closed and the ERA is also 3.5 inches long closed and looks like maybe a horn(not sure) front handle and the backside handle is very old steel with J. Thompson stamped onto it.....think maybe it was replaced many years ago since the pins still have the little dent in from re pinning...but I suppose maybe someone just tightened the pins down?....wish I had more history.

Bob

Here is another oldie....probably not so rare except that is has the most stout and heavy duty master blade I`ve ever seen in an old military knife. Nice bone with just :"Made in USA" stamp. 3 and 5/8ths closed Made by Camillus? Any info is most welcome. Thanks,

Bob

Got this one yesterday.At first I thought it might be a Novelty Cutlery Co knife as I remember seeing this pattern in an old(1978)issue of Knife world advertising these(with decorative cel scales)for $9.95 each.
Eng the tang I see what appears to be "Standard Knife Co".Upon researching this name I find that this was the forerunner of Case knives.There were two stampings:an early(1901-1903)stamping from Little Valley and a later(1920-1923)from Bradford.
I have a PM into Steve Pfeiffer concerning this and hopefully he will be able to shed some light on it.

Here is a Union Knife Works, NYC knife. It is a little rough, but I think the blade configuration is cool. I know my scans don't show it, but the screw driver blade is beveled for wire stripping.

I bought this one today, a 3-1/2" teardrop jack knife with nice stag handles. I don't have any idea how old it is; it has nice snap with a half-stop main blade and a full stop pen blade (which appear to be fairly full). I cleaned it up, oiled the hinges, and sharpened it on a washita stone - like a razor now - very easy steel to work with.
Tang is stamped:
BELKNAP
HDWE. & MFG.
CO.

My wife & I went to the flea market a couple weeks ago.
I picked up a couple old and unusual tang stamps.

The first is a Water-Ville.
Goins dates this stamp 1890-1913.
A nice rope knife but badly sharpened. It needs a good tune up to get it to walk & talk properly.

The other is stamped J Askham Sheffield.
LG4 dates it as 1856-1920s. The J stood for John.

Honored to be able to contribute to this thread.

I have a John S. Holler & Co Celebrated Cutlery MOP knife c1867-1906.

It's sooooooooooo cool to have a 100+ year old knife in my posession!
