Probably not if the handles really are Delrin and the knife really is 1958-60. Dupont didn't open their Delrin factory until 1960.

In 1960, DuPont completed construction of a plant to produce its own version of acetal resin, named Delrin, at Parkersburg, West Virginia.

It is possible that it's not "Delrin" as supplied by Dupont but it is a synthetic. The tang stamp dates the knife to 1958-60 but I'd bet it's 1960 or even a year later. Those tang stamp dates do vary.

Nice handles on that one. What does the V in V6254 stand for?


According to "Case College", V6 stands for Vintage bone.

Of course, given this is Case, I suppose it could also be "Vintage Delrin"... ::tounge::

Thanks all!

In the mail today was another bottom-feeder special - a Kutmaster pen knife with yellow cracked ice handles. Unfortunately, this one has a burn mark on the front handle, and someone appears to have gone after the blades with a ham-handed attempt at sharpening. Oh well, they can't all be gems! I just liked it because it is a pen knife from a US company that I did not previously have - Utica Kutmaster.

It's settling in. So far I haven't done anything but chicken eye and coon finger it and it will never get used so I can't pass judgment on performance. Out of the tube, it needed a drop of Quick Release on the joints but it's motorin' just fine now. I don't have any buyers remorse.

Maybe ,maybe not, DuPont was a very innovative company very big in R&D, they would PROBABLY had a small manufacturing facility to develope products and customers a few years before committing to a full fledged factory, so it's not out of the realm of possibilities that cutlery companies had access to Delrin before '60. ::shrug:: ::handshake:: ::tu::

Here's an interesting article that includes some info on when Queen transitioned from Winterbottom bone to Delrin.
http://www.queencutlery.com/uploads/The ... Harbor.pdf

This article seems to indicate it was actually Rogers Mfg Co. (the handle supplier to pretty much the entire US pocket knife industry) that first made the transition, and that was in the late 1960s.

Neat little knife TFL. I got a little Remington that looks a lot like it. Haven't taken a picture yet.

Picked this 1700s Pearl and silver fruit knife for under a Jackson shipped. ,925 Sterling and gorgeous old growth Pearl like we haven't seen in almost 100 years. There's still beautiful examples of the Cutler's art to be had for a good price.
