Is it a trick of the camera, or are the ebony scales a different color? Looks like black on mark side, and brownish on the pile side?

I think I have seen that before. Regardless, she's a beauty!

Nice grab!

A short history of LF&C
Quote:
The Landers, Frary & Clark company was formed in 1862, when the firm of Landers and Smith purchased Frary and Carey.
They were reorganized in 1865 as Landers Frary & Clark.
In 1866 they purchased a factory from the Meriden Cutlery Co., and began making table cutlery, and fixed blade knives.
In 1909, they purchased the trademark Universal from Levi T.Snow of New Haven, Conn.
In 1912, Landers Frary & Clark purchased the Humason & Beckley Manufacturing Company of New Britain,
and began manufacturing pocket knives and razors.
In 1918, they purchased all of the Meriden Cutlery Company.
In 1950, the cutlery division was discontinued. The firm continued in its other endeavors untill 1965,
when all assets, patents and trademarks were sold to the General Electric Corporation.


I'd say that knife pre-dates 1940.

Nice knife.

Looks like I've gone full circle. Willie is back to using the same avatar he had when I first joined AAPK.

LOL The other night when the forum was down, I hit the chat room for a few minutes and Philco put in a request to see that avatar again. SO I hunted him down and put him back up for a bit. :mrgreen:

Here is a nice, though well used cigar jack which I got for cheap. The "Universal" stamp is still visible on the master blade (although not in the picture).
