Ah, common Cuz. What else are you going to do with all that filthy lucre?

I had that one on my watch list and came awful close to bidding but got sidetracked by a loomfixer. I'm glad it stayed in the family.

Greg, I agree with Tommy. Awesome collection of short lines. ::super_happy:: ::clapping:: ::tu:: ::tu:: And what a bargain on the latest member. That's what I'd like to shoot for - a small collection of nothing but short line in bone. I wonder if all short line bone is Rogers? Who's your repair guy...Dale?

I am always amazed at what the self-glorified worship - anything you can convince them of being them in itself, even a hypocrisy which places special interest above all else.

Here's one I just bought. It may be a herring in disguise or a trick of the lighting but when I looked at this long line 72 I swear I see a double sided sabre ground master blade. All you hawk eyed experts please confirm my suspicion or bring it crashing to the ground.

Good eye my friend. Saber ground on both sides of the main blade. Blades have little to no loss. Really good "Brownstag" handles (that brown synthetic used from mid 1950s - mid 1960s). You have yourself a winner.

This image will enlarge quite a bit more than the one you posted.
