finally got the knife...forgot to mention it has a locking mechanism. Is it less common being that it's a 3-eye..along with being a lockback??? The 3-eye etch is faint in the picture..but it's there.

one more thing I was meaning to ask....are there any books,literature or websites out there where a person can research German Eye patterns such as this one? Of course, there's all kinds of information concerning Case patterns...and I read everything I can get my hands on...but information on Eye brand patterns is much harder to come by.

not much written on eyes, to my knowledge Forest Cruse Sr. was 1st major importer & started in the 30s. i used to have a catalog from that period-- paladin did a copy of same but i ca'nt find it now. paladin is at a show so maybe he will chime in on mon.
your knife was not one being originally imported. for many years the cruse family had an exclusive on the stock knife pattern coming to the states. there was a story in Knife World about 88 or 1990. HiPower

...found it...August 1983 issue with an article entitled "Cutlery of Carl Schlieper" by Joe Dobbs...hoping they might have back-issues that far back for sale. Plan on getting in contact with them today. ::tu:: Thanks!

Guys:
When I first saw the photo of this pattern I was not familar with it and in fact, sent a copy of the photo to a friend to see what he thought. He essentially said, 'dummy, I sent you one of those not long back'. I again thought to myself that it was a pattern I hadn't seen but diggin around in some stuff today and sure enuf, there it was! ::tu::
Here is a photo of mine.

Ray
