I finally completed a set of Cripple Creek Green River knives. This set consisted of 5 knives made between 1984 and 1989. There were 100 sets made. From top to bottom:

2 blade copperhead made in 1989
3 blade sowbelly made in 1984
2 blade dogleg jack made in 1985
2 blade trapper made in 1985
3 blade whittler made in 1987

Congratulations on completing the set. Persistence does pay. About how long did it take you to get all of them?

I was fortunate to be able to get three at one time then was able to do some trading with a fellow Cripple Creek collector for the other two. So only about six months which is pretty quick compared to some other sets I have been working on for years.

My next quest is for a set of Cripple Creek Wounded Knee barlows. There were four in the set that came in a wooden wheel. If anyone knows where I may be able to acquire one or all of the set send me a pm.
