Well, I don't have any Waterville or Walden sticks :( but I do have a number of Vintage Oregon sticks. :)
Sticks related to such world famous cutlery companies as Murphy (Murphy combat knives & the original maker of Gerber Knives), and of course Gerber sticks, Al Mar sticks, Benchmade sticks, and Columbia River Knife & Tool sticks. ::tu:: ::tu::

I even have a stick verified to be sharpened by Orvet, the barely known & occasionally heralded sometimes knife maker & customizer of knives.
(I think I can even get him to sign one). ::groove::

Unfortunately, I do not have a way to scan them, as they won’t fit my scanner. ::cr::
However, I just ordered a photo booth today & if the interest remains high in the sticks, I can make, …er, ……. I mean photograph :oops: some sticks for this thread when my new booth arrives. :mrgreen:

Fran,
Please post pics of all the sharp sticks (you may exclude the dull ones) in your collection.
Perhaps we can get Bryan to set aside a special thread for Stick Swapping! ::ds::

Four months later a Waterville beaches itself in the Pacific Northwest!!
This knife was preceded by a Tsunami!!
I have compared it to a Case 6347 premium Stockman, so you can get an idea of size. It also weighs twice as much as the Case! I've never seen that shield before either; have you??
Here's big Mamoo!! When either blade snaps, all the crows leap from their roost!! :lol:

I can't translate, but I will say that both the knives shown above are great. :P

Both have such interesting designs and such a richness about them. ::tu::

That big old Jack has a backspring like a bear trap. You'd have to put rocks in your other pocket for ballast if you carried that thing. :lol:

Just this one.

I had a xchance at one exactly like that a few weeks back, but it had greenish horn handles. Blade was worn but still snapped like a trap, I nearly fell over when he proudly stated his $600 price tag :shock:

I have a couple of those knives which I believe are either used for splicing new growth onto a tree(slice bark open w/blade;use other end to open bark to insert splice)or as a combination folding bone(for making envelopes before they were commercially available)and sharpening pen quills.Both of mine are English.

I got this knife as a gift while at the Leheigh show this past weekend. The backsprings are covered in Tortoise.
