(post re-written because of accidental moderator activity :roll: )

The Easton Show seems to be growing every year. A small town show, so I didn't expect too much, but was pleasantly surprised. Six real nice knives in my area of interest, from less than 100 tables was darn good. And a Pig Roast to boot!! (which I could not attend :( )
But the best part was meeting a bunch of AAPK guys! I felt like I knew them all my life. We had a great old time. Who doesn't love talking about knives with like minded good old boys!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
So here are the knives I scored; From the left -
1) A Schrade Cut, in the box, that is dead, stone, absolute, cold MINT!! May be a military contract. Finger-slicer can opener has a stud on the reverse.
2) A Terrier Barlow by Robeson, that matches my Strawberry-bone one I carried for 10 years or so. Smooth, semi-sunk, rounded; a superior pocket knife!!
3)The most beautiful bone in the universe, on a Robeson Harness Jack! This one is near mint, and has the rare BP shield (Thanks Barry for pointing it out to me!)
4)The next is a Schrade Walden 836, again near mint. I've had several of these (8-10?) and this one is the best!
5)The next Empire got me "all shook up" like my first true love used to do! (Sing it Elvis, wherever you are!!) Very old Empire in phenomenal condition! Old decorative stamping, might be one of the first Empire tang stamps!
6)Last but not least, a sterling Empire pen, with a cigar cutter, and a neat etch!

Not too shabby!!

As Andy Griffith used to say on his show, AND THAT'S SOME KIND OF BEAUTIFUL TOO! That Robeson tear drop and the Empire that had you all shook up are the bombs! Absolutely wonderful knives. I've got to go on a diet man to get something like those, Upnorth if I die of malnutrition from eating only beans and wieners it's your fault.... :D

Just add some green stuff, and you'll be fine, Aimus! :mrgreen:

I forgot to mention; My wife chose the utility Schrade for my 65th birthday (about a week before the show!)! It actually came in the box!!

Those are all beauties, but that Schrade Cut utility (in the box!!!) is something extra special and on top of that, your wife bought it for your birthday!

Dale, Fran was a great host, and made our stay real easy. He acted as a guide, and made sure we didn't get lost in all the winding roads that wend through that part of PA! Even gave us a tour of the historic schoolhouse he oversees!! A real treasure!!
He did get a little wild-eyed :roll: in the presence of some press-button knives, but managed to keep himself in check :mrgreen: !


Hey Ray, glad you like 'em! ::tu::

While I'm on the subject of my trip, I just want to thank Mike Losicco (galvanic) for inviting me over, enroute, to see his fabulous collection!
He spread 'em all out for me to view (and probably spent hours later wiping off my sweaty fingerprints!) on his dining room table and other surfaces! I've never seen so many etches in one place, and such great back-up paper and boxes!
Thanks Mike!! ::tu::

I'm sorry. I asked about the pattern number on that harness jack, then didn't come back to this Easton. Pa thread to check on the answer.

That's a great knife. The photo suggests the knife to be a bit of a dogleg, but of course it's not. It's a regular jack.

That "B-P" shield reportedly stands for "Belt Punch". I think Bruce Voyles first suggested that.

The pattern number is missing a zero (here we go again). The number is actually 636036 1/2. I do not own a 036 pattern jack, but judging from the knives whose numbers surround that one, it's probably 3 1/2" long. I also suspect that the pattern does not ordinarily have a harness/punch blade as the secondary. That "1/2" in the pattern number indicates a variation from the standard pattern.

That is a great knife. I'm absolutely sure I've never seen one like it before.

The most common Robeson harness jack is the swell-end 382.

Charlie, I think that's two, count 'em, TWO, rare Robeson harness knives you've produced in recent months. I'm jealous.

Thanks for filling in the pattern number info, Charlie. The knife is 3 5/8" long, and here are a couple more pics. It's easier to see the teardrop shape with the blades both open. I think you can click the pics to blow them up, but you probably know that.

8) Charlie, I know that jealousy well, BTW!
It is a complement though!!
