Thanks guys, you all have revived my appreciation for this forum and OLD knives. ::tu:: I was beginning to think I was a loner. ::huff:: Now I know there are plenty of us out there. :D

Buckeye "you had two Eldred's" OMG, man ::facepalm:: I hope that Honda is awesome, I waited years just to own this relic of a knife. You let 2 go.!!!!!!!!!! ::shrug::

Isn't this a great hobby. ::handshake:: We learn everyday. ::ds::

David, I found the Eldred knife in an antique store in Michigan following the Wolverine Show in February. I suspected it came out of the Platt's factory, but really couldn't find any info on it. It was in my roll at the Parker Show earlier this month and I traded it off to someone I knew would find a good home for it. It's the only Eldred I've ever seen. I'm happy to know where it wound up. Mike

It's a sweetheart David.

Had my internet been working, I'd have seen it sooner than tonite, and said something. ::tounge::

Keep the oldies coming. ::tu::
